Random thoughts...

  • I want a narcoleptic defenseman to make the NHL so that an announcer can say "the defenseman fell asleep at the blueline" and really mean it!
  • I'm hoping the Steelers beat the Broncos because most Denver sports fans are buttmunches. IN-COM-PLETE! Losers. Sadly, the Steelers might fall victim to the high altitude and pollution.
  • Divealanche is hilarious because it's all fucking true. As most of you by now certainly know, Altitude Sports has fired John Candy from his position as John "Thank you thank you thank you" Kelly's replacement for Denver broadcasts of Avalanche games. According to insiders at the network, the portly play-by-play man infuriated co-host Peter "Right Bookend" McNab when, during a game against the Kings, Candy acknowledged that Pavol Demitra had scored a hat trick.
  • We might sign Owen Nolan. I love him, but this makes me uneasy. This is far from the team he played with before.
  • We signed someone called "Iggulden". That sounds like something straight out of Lord of the Rings. Who's next? Boromir? Aragorn?
  • My roomie's sister went to watch Brokeback Mountain this weekend and it was sold out. I was kind of boggled since it's been out for a while, but then remembered that I live in San Francisco. :P
  • I fell asleep after the second period of the Sharks game, not knowing if we would chump it and lose going into the third up 2-0. *cheers* We didn't!
  • I love the way Vesa Toskala throws his hands out in a "WTF were you doing?" gesture after someone on our team deflects a puck into our own goal.
  • I love the way Nabby stands up after a big save and looks irritated and sheepish at the same time.

I read worrisome things about Nabby. :(

After the victory Monday, Coach Ron Wilson said that Nabokov had ``tweaked his groin the other night'' and that the Sharks wanted to be cautious because of the groin problems Nabokov and Toskala endured earlier this season.

Nabokov, though, offered a somewhat different version.

``You ask them and they will answer to you,'' Nabokov said when asked about his injury status.

Did he pull his groin in Montreal or Ottawa?

``I don't have any comment on that one,'' Nabokov said. ``I don't want to start anything, so just go ask the coaches all that.''

He paused, then said: ``I feel fine.''

Although their accounts might sound contradictory, Wilson said, ``No, no. He's got a sore groin, but he feels fine.''

Adding to the intrigue was en e-mail the Sharks sent out Monday afternoon that alerted the media to Schaefer's recall but mentioned nothing about Nabokov's injury. It only mentioned that the roster move would allow Nabokov to receive a couple of days' rest.


*staples him to the Sharks*

[Edit: And the plot thickens...
Anonymous source #1: It's pretty ugly, but I can't talk about it right now.

Anonymous source #2 (actually, Bob, the lead usher): yeah, he's going to have the flu for the next couple of games (one needs to realize that every injury in the universe is the flu with Bob... grin)

Anonymous source #3: I don't have a clue, but he's down in the weight room lifting right now....

Now, there was a second rumor wandering down around section 127, too -- that the Sharks got stuck in customs for 8 hours leaving Montreal, because a player "got caught with something".

divealanche is the best ever!

*pets nabby* meep


I often wonder who does that site. I'm thinking that it's a knowledgeable transplant from Canada or Detroit or some other hockey place who's absolutely appalled by the local media and fans.

its a canuck fan I think *g*

*points to your icon*

So what do you figure? Stevens had a thing for Brodeur? Or vice versa? ;)

Maybe it ended badly, which is why one of them isn't there anymore.

We signed someone called "Iggulden". That sounds like something straight out of Lord of the Rings. Who's next? Boromir? Aragorn?

Only if the Sharks can manage to work a deal with the Dom-Land Caribou!

Maybe some kind of trade can be arranged...

Notes: The Caribou had some difficulty negotiating with the league and players union when they drafted Boromir, who is dead. However, after an extensive review of the MEHA rulebook, which resulted in massive paper cuts and a fistfight, the Caribou won its case as there is no rule preventing a deceased being from playing hockey.

Muahahahaha!!! Although, given that Satan is in the NHL...

I wonder how Good Omens would have gone if the Antichrist was Canadian and decided there should be a hockey match to decide. Yeah. Uhm. I don't know where that came from. I just like the idea of Aziraphale playing hockey. :p

Muahaha, and oh, the goal celebrations!

I'll becha Aziraphale would do the neck-snuggle. :p

LMFAO

We might sign Owen Nolan. I love him, but this makes me uneasy. This is far from the team he played with before.

Honestly, this Leafs fan says "You can HAVE him."

As far as I'm concerned, in the Owen Nolan/Alyn McCauley Trade... you guys got the better end of the deal.

I've NEVER liked Nolan, and this goes back to the goonish way he played while on the Sharks... especially against the Kings...

After the victory Monday, Coach Ron Wilson said that Nabokov had ``tweaked his groin the other night'' and that the Sharks wanted to be cautious because of the groin problems Nabokov and Toskala endured earlier this season.

What, him too?!

*groans* So who do you suppose he was *ahem* playing with *ahem* when he got his groin pull? ;)

C.

That's the thing, I don't think he fits in with the team anymore. It's changed too much, and presumably, he hasn't.

Well, he'd recently "had breakfast" with Toskala...

IMO Nolan's head could use a little deflating, yes.

As for Nabby... is THAT what they're calling it now. "Having breakfast", eh? I'm sure they both enjoyed that one. ;)

C.

"And he scores! Burnaby Joe! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!"

That guy made me want to punch holes in the wall!

I've got the Avs feed right now, and I'm stunned by how it isn't gallingly biased anymore!

Shhhh!!!!! *chants to self* Must not think about game....

;)

C.

*giggles* I loves Peter but according to him, a goalie can get scored on five times but there's five ways to excuse those goals so therefore the goalie was never scored on at all! It amuses me. I still am glad they fired that whatshisname guy who replaced Kelly though. He was unattractive and dull. *is shamelessly shallow*

The replacement guy seems pretty okay. Maybe Avs fans will slowly become less buttmunchy! Well, the ones who don't read the papers, anyway...

Haha, the guy doing the games now is Mike Haynes. He's been the radio play by play guy for the Avs since the beginning, He's INSANE! On the radio is can howl like a cat in heat when the avs do anything. He is more than willing to compliment another team's good work though.

He's a little toned down for television but I doubt that will last. Just wait for the playoffs and he'll be jumping off the walls.

I don't know what I'd do without Divealanche. It's a haven of sanity! And the hilarity doesn't hurt, either.

Ooh, mystery and intrigue in San Jose! That will hopefully turn out to be innocent intrigue, involving perfectly healthy groins.

I love their insane player bio on Ossi Vaananen too. If I could be bothered, I'd make that sign and bring it to an Avs game.

I kind of like Nabby being a pouty asshole about the whole thing. *grin* I don't want him to leave though. :(

Hey, did you see that Petr cut his hair? I wonder if he had Patty do it?

I did! I'm wondering if Patty performed some kind of intervention...
