Patrick Marleau

"My name might be the only thing Irish about me."

Part 3 of JMFJ/Donuts fic is posted here.

Really happy for the 2 points last night, but I also felt bad for the Wild and Marty because of joolzie. :( And then I was terrified when Dan Boyle went down cos' I thought someone hit his head again and it was one of those things where you're already concussed and it makes it much worse. But then I was - this sounds so bad - relieved when I found out that it was his knee. Just because with a knee you know how long it will take, and you know he'll get back, probably with no lasting damage. Not good timing given it's close to the playoffs, but...

Patty scoring the GWG on St. Patrick's Day! :D And off a lucky (Irish) bounce, although he says he isn't of Irish descent. The Couture goal was flukier, but we've had our fair share of goals like that scored against us, so I'm going to complain. :P

Meanwhile, the Kings somehow managed to get swept by the Blues. If not for how good Quick was in the game (well, first two periods anyway, I haven't watched the third yet), it would have been yet worse... and they got shut out 4-0. The Blues pretty much just outplayed them. The SOG after the second were 30-6 in favour of the Blues. The Kings got a bronx cheer after their 5th SOG I think, LOL.

At one point there was a Blues 5-on-1 and the one King back was JMFJ. I don't know if you could dream up a more nightmarish scenario for the Kings, ahahahahaha.

There was an article in the LA Times about how Terry Murray was ripping the fans last night, and... I don't really interpret his comments that way. I mean I can see how you could, but I'd like to think he wouldn't have thought that.

"That is the most embarrassing thing I have ever been through. That's the worst I have ever been through in all the years I've been coaching," Murray said. "I've been behind the bench almost 3,000 hockey games in the NHL and booed off the ice by your own fans, at the end of the second period, after… this road trip, going 4-0 in hard places, it's very disappointing."

I read that more as, the team sucked so badly at home after playing relatively well on the road trip that they earned boos from the fans, and it was the team's play that disappointed him.

Although abby20 says they were booing Quick and that just really doesn't seem right, because he's the main reason they're even in a playoff spot right now.

[ Edit: They were so desperate at some point to get anything going JMFJ and Donuts were playing together at even strength. Eek. ]

I was upset about the booing...it would be different if they had been sucking, but they haven't!

Also...JJ was on NHL LIve today.

And yes, I've read your fic, and yes, you will get fb! :)

I think getting outshot 30-6 over 2 periods deserves some booing. :P But Quick personally doesn't. He made some really great saves last night.

Thanks for the heads up! He's so positive, LOL. It's awesome and annoying at the same time. *grin*

Yay, thanks for reading!!! :D

I guess I don't boo my own team. I know lots of others that do, but for some reason I just never have. I have other things I do vocally, verbally, what have you, to let them know my displeasure. lol...

I think the Hawks and the Kings should have played each other last night because neither team looked interested.

Oh well, I personally don't do it but I can understand why other people would. And the Sharks have admitted that they hear it and do play better sometimes, so uhh, I suppose the booing can continue. :P

It was commenting last night to Abby how weird it was that the Hawks beat the Sharks 6-3, then the Sharks beat the Stars 6-3... so of course the Stars would beat the Hawks, well, not 6-3, but you get the pattern.

Yeah, I read that the same way. It sounds as if he was embarrassed that they DESERVED to be booed off the ice, which is valid.

Also I'm not sure if Quick got booed or just a Bronx cheer. Still sad. :(

He let in a couple of softies but he made so many great saves last night! :(

They asked JMFJ about Terry Murray's comments but he was like, umm, I ran away after the game so I don't know what he said. I do still feel like he didn't mean it the way it was interpreted, though.

mae do you know why they call him J Smooth!??? its been bugging me for like a year. :P him meaning Quick.

also awesome fic!!!! ive been asleep for like a day and a half on and off so that's as good as fb gets lol.

I don't think I've ever heard him called that! Or at least if I have, I've forgotten. I'm sure SDQ would know. :P

Hee, I'm glad you like it and sleep is good!!! :D

both times I've seen him play at home, people yell out 'ATTA BOY J SMOOTH" after every single time he touches the puck, sort of like a Louuuu but idk where Smooth came from lol. I asked on twitter and none of my followers knew either, mmmmmystery :D

I feel like it's something his teammates called him as a rookie. Perhaps fans feel more comfortable calling him that than "Quickie" har har har!

i keep on thinking since they say DB for Brown, that they'll scream DP for penner and thats kinda trauma too hahahaha

Dude when I went to a game on Long Island, it was like... kids' day or something and there were all these children and they were chanting "DP!" for DiPietro and I was like, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEIR PARENTS??? MAKE THEM STOP ARGH!!!

I accidentally mentioned this at a lunch at work once and everyone stared at me and was like, 'What's DP'?

And then I was just red faced.

Ahahaha, yeah, awkward. Although I would think all guys of a certain age would know!
