Hockey talk

I watched the BJs/Kings game I am slightly grumpy that Steve Mason almost stole a game from us on Saturday and then just crapped out last night. Maybe we depressed him or something. But still, bah!

Things I like about Jack Johnson: has a good sense of when to shoot from the point/blueline (could get more shots through, but at least they're not being blocked back for breakaway opportunities so that's okay), takes hits to make plays, pinches aggressively, generally without bad results, pretty good at tying up guys defensively, lopsided smile and passing resemblance to Tyler Arnason except not fat.

Things I do not like about Jack Johnson: doesn't seem to make or (especially) receive passes very well, seems a bit panicky (still undetermined whether he is actually panicking or just flailing about in excitement), I'm comparing him to Christian Ehrhoff so there isn't really that much to complain about.

Things I am amused or ambivalent about: the spin-o-rama (which he learned from Doughty?), the way he scrabbles around like a big dumb puppy when he's trying to get somewhere fast, his honesty and bluntness (which I actually love, but feel like it will get him in trouble one day and then he'll Tiger Woods up).

Wow, Matt Moulson is one step removed from a scary homeless guy.

I have been playing Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (this FPS from 2002) a little bit and Omaha Beach is brutal. If I had been there that day I would have been gunned down in the water before even reaching the beach. Ugh. I finally made it through the same way those guys did it, I guess. By all charging together in enough numbers that enemy fire couldn't take them all out.
