Patrick Marleau


Went to the Sens game with lastcatastrophe last night and it was so much fun!!! After uhh, some difficulty, we finished the TEAM SCHUBIE sign and placed it against the glass for warm ups. To add to their confusion, we were wearing our Sharks jerseys! :P

Mezzy giggled at the sign. He's so cute and... not chubby, but like puffy-cheeked? Like a baby! Spezza looked too, and seemed to be amused, aww!!! Schubie himself was all aloof and trying to react and was staring at the ceiling every time he skated by, but I caught him looking once. Ha! Caught you, Schubie! Vermette also looked, and he seemed baffled, which was pretty much the reaction of the rest of the team.

Emery stopped by us for a while. He has a thin straight scar on the back of his neck at the base. I'm very intrigued! How do you manage to cut yourself there? Mike Fisher skated by the guys clustered against the glass near us and he was smiling broadly about something. I immediately thought "Jill! Jill! Jill! Jill!" Wade also stopped by us a little later, and I thought "Jill! Jill! Jill! Jill!" again. He looked kind of skinny and haggard. :(

If there is one truth in life, it is that Dany Heatley ruins everything.

He kept looking at the sign--blatantly! Not like, sneak peeks. Then he skated in front of the camera just as Lira was taking pictures of Spezza!!! Then! Then! Schubie skated over and stopped right next to us!!! Then we flailed wildly, but soon after, Heatley skated over and stopped between Schubie and us and I started crying. :( :( :(

It was a good game! The Sharks persisted past their flailitude to pull out their win, which I think they deserved because they totally ownzored!!! This must be another instance of seeing a game very differently while there vs on TV or in the eyes of journalists, because analysts seemed to be talking about it like it was a fairly even game.

!!! Wha? I mean, in what universe did the Sens play well defensively? (Oh right, the Eastern Conference :P) It's not even like they were bringing the heat consistently offensively, either. On one power play, the Sens tried to carry the puck across the line and got denied three times consecutively. Then they gave up and dumped the puck in twice, and were beat to the puck both times, and the puck was immediately cleared. They weren't even able to set up once on that PP, let alone get a SOG.

They scored on what was pretty much an unforced turnover, and a deflection on a PP where the Sharks had pretty good coverage. Meanwhile, the Sharks were like, whiffing on open nets, shooting over the net, by the net, (probably under the net too) and double deflecting pucks into Gerber's chest. In other words, tricking the media into thinking that Gerber was great. ;) Not to say he was bad, I think he had a solid game, but I know he's capable of playing better; he was just never put into a situation where he had to make a fantastic save because the Sharks were whiffing or shooting right at him.

There was a very cute moment where Vermette was standing the goal crease (as the lone forechecker, Sharks had possession of the puck, Sens were changing lines I think) and then Nabby skated menacingly out of his net towards Vermette. And then poked him in the legs with his goal stick a few times, hee! Also, Gerber hiding in his net when the play is in the other zone is very cute.

Patty and Cheech. ♥ Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Lira and I where all sniffly with pride and love! I just feel so happy for them after the season they've gone through. It's just... he's my captain. And I want him to be captain. I don't care if Joe is the scoring leader on the team with like double the points, I don't feel that he's the heart of the team. I think I take for granted now how good Joe is, which may be unfair, but to see Patty be all determined in OT and keep the puck in and win board battles and get to the front of the net, it's... it's... *bursts into tears*

Also, Joe was so excited after Patty scored in OT that he stuck his arm out and shoved Ron Wilson into the glass really hard, muahahahaha! I'll put up a clip later.

[Edit: Is Garrioch the guy you people hate?
"I’m surprised the one guy who makes the most stuff up isn’t over here. He’s run for cover tonight," Wilson said. And though he mentioned no one by name, it was a pretty obvious reference to Bruce Garrioch, who was covering the game for the Ottawa Sun and probably in the Senators’ locker room at the time.

Did you see the photo of him being mobbed by the team? He and Rivet were screaming at each other! Dude, where did all this emotion come from? :'-(

Haha, no, I just saw that the guys were like, especially enthusiastic, even for an OT win. Craig was grinning like the Cheshire Cat before his head bump with Nabby.

hahahahah that is awesome.

Dany just wanted some love too :(

He gets no love!!! Okay, maybe he can get love, but only from people as ugly as him!

(I guess that means he gets no love. :P)

Garrioch is indeed the guy everyone hates, and he was indeed there, being stupid, no doubt.

I was actually proud of the Sens for at least half of the game, and I didn't think they were horribly outplayed for any great stretches -- not at all like against Anaheim. I guess it's a reflection of how truly terrible they've become. Heh. But I'm glad you guys had fun.

Err, I meant to add that I was kind of proud because they always play like lost kittens without Alfie, i.e., much, much worse than that. Also, the PP sucked even when we were 15-2 -- it always sucks, it's just how it is. ;) Also also, I am happy for Spezza that he got to show off a little bit for Thornton.

Mike Fisher skated by the guys clustered against the glass near us and he was smiling broadly about something.

I just love Fishy!! So adorable with that beaming smile...and umm very cute ass too=)

That is so cute all of them stopped to sneak little peeks at you guys=)

Yeah Gerber is the best choice for goal right now for the Sens. Since NHL Center Ice didn't televise the game=(, it looked like Gerber wasn't too bad. But better than putting Emery in though.

Meszaros had the cutest reaction. The baffled expressions were awesome, though. We need to make strange signs for every game we go too. Best entertainment value for $0.99 ever!!!

Gerber probably played better than I thought he did. My evaluation of goalies seems to be different from everyone else's evaluation most of the time, though (although I always turn out to be right, muahaha!) Like he should be able to pull off wins against LA and Phoenix, at least.




He looked quite sad and forlorn! Perhaps he misses you!!!

Ahh, I admire your ability to see the positive in all things.

(Deleted comment)
He referred to Joe as the "Sharks captain", LOL.


Dear Mae,

ILU and Lira so, so, so much.


Schubie himself was all aloof and trying to react and was staring at the ceiling every time he skated by, but I caught him looking once
Muahahaha. Of course he did. Also, HEE Mezzy. I bet he was more excited by the sign than Schubie was. (By the way, we always have this debate, chez crankygeek, as how to describe him: my father uses "chubby," but my adjective of choice is fat.) In conclusion, Best. Sign. Ever.

I am very fond of the Sharks: I wish the game had been aired! Also, today I saw someone on my school's campus wearing a Sharks jersey and a Sens hat, so I thought of you guys. :) Except for the part where you guys are way more awesome!!! (ARE THERE PICTURES! OF YOU CRAZY KIDS AND YOUR SIGN???)

[edited because my original comment sounded oddly dirty]

Oddly dirty is always appropriate where we're concerned!!! :D

Also, at one point Schubie took a penalty and I screamed, "GO TEAM SCHUBIE!!!" and the person next to Lira stared at me strangely. :P See the thing with Mezzy is that his face is chubby, but the body doesn't match. Or... does it? Hmm!

Ahh, a strange and unholy alliance of a Sharks and Sens fan!!! We failed to get pictures of us, but umm... we still have the sign! We will have pictures taken next time. We should have had a cohort take a picture of us from the other side of the rink to get Schubie next to our sign. :( :( :(

He has a thin straight scar on the back of his neck at the base.


uh more later I'm in a writing seminar but that just had to be said
