We got the Flyers/Rangers game instead of the Wild/Wings game like I expected. No complaints, though, it was great to see Boosh play so well. In fact, I was just commenting to joolzie how good he was when he seemed to get painfully injured. :( :( :( But then he stayed in and got the win! So proud and happy.
I loved all of the shots at various places around Chicago. It reminded me of last summer. ♥ Of course, I didn't notice until the first intermission that it was Chicago, haha. I thought it was Thirty Rock as usual, then I was like... why do they have a big silver bean just like Chicago???
Jordan Staal looks like a bleached blonde version of Tom Brady right now. It's strange. I'm going to keep complaining to early_afternoon until he cuts his hair.
I was about 45 minutes behind and Joolzie told me about an upcoming segment called "US hockey hero Patrick Kane" and I was SO EXCITED. So excited. But then it turned out to be just a short thing with your generic Olympic and SCF footage and comments. I love all the attention they paid to him, and that he got the SO winner, haha. I love all of his shenanigans and stuff, but I really do like him as a player. It was actually Kane's play at the Olympics that inspired me to write Some Guy Called Ryan, not JMFJ.
Really love the Flames look for the Heritage Classic! And Subban looks so cool, heh. I love that they used Requiem For a Dream for the intro music. I was confused by the singing of the US anthem and the big US flag thing, though. But, I guess at the Winter Classic they always sing the Canadian anthem? I don't remember.
I didn't really get into the game all that much. I think if I'd gotten a Canadian feed it would have been a lot better, but I don't really care about the Habs or Flames much, so with the Versus feed? Meh. I absolutely loved the 2003 game though, even though I disliked those teams too!
x_jerseygirl alerted me to the fact that one of the questions asked on Shark Byte was what would be your weapon of choice in the upcoming zombie apocalypse!!! I totally hadn't seen that before I wrote my Sharks zombie fic. Craziness.
Jack Johnson - "Playing in Madison Square Garden, it's the greatest arena in the world. So, it's a cool thing. My family is going to come watch. They've never seen me play in Madison Square Garden before. That's my favorite arena to go to."
Aww, he and his family are so sweet. :) And he's so proud and American. *sigh*
While trying to figure out whether JMFJ ever played with Toews at Shattuck-St. Mary's (doesn't look like he did), I came across this photo:
He is, in fact, grabbing JMFJ's ass. Their faces. The eye contact. Man. Crosby has a bigger crush on JMFJ than I do. There was also a photo of them as champions in 2003.
Guess which guys were next to each other?
