Patrick Marleau

The Giants are going to the Superbowl!!!

It's kind of disgusting how excited and nervous I got during the Giants/Packers game. :P The Giants have been my secondary team (when you're a 49ers fan, having a secondary team helps with finding something positive at all in football) since almightychrissy posted stuff about Eli Manning and I started paying attention to them and liked the way they played.

As far as I was concerned, today was going to be the last day of football because the Superbowl is always so overshadowed by the commercials and the half-time show and all this stuff that has nothing to do with football. But now that the Giants are going to be playing, I'm kind of looking forward to it, even though they'll probably be clobbered!

As a follow up to that Toskala man-purse clip I posted, I found this on WikiAnswers: Is Vesa Toskala gay? I think my favourite thing about that is being European is apparently "evidence" of being gay!

fullycompletely pointed me to this weep-inducing (for me) blog post by Kelly Hrudey talking about Patty Marleau and what it was like when he lived with Hrudey and his family as a rookie.

First of all, I had no idea that carpooling was so exciting. Secondly, it's stuff like this that makes me love hockey so much. Guys going above and beyond and taking care of each other. It's like... there's something about the sport for the guys that goes beyond the sport. It's hard to explain but it's so special. You see camaraderie in other sports, definitely, but... I don't know. Hockey is almost spiritual, hehe.

Also, I may be kind of stubborn/obsessed and I downloaded someone's 100% of Gimme Shelter on hard for guitar from YouTube so that I could practice at home. *blush*
