I still can't believe that Marty is a Shark

I was totally expecting a loss, but why in such a sucky way? I actually missed most of the 49ers game because I was taking a nap. I had the Giants game on while I was napping and woke up briefly when Matt Cain hit a home run, woo!!! (First of the season) Matt Cain hitting home runs makes me inexplicably happy.

Brent Burns tweeted some photos of Marty (Havlat)!

Look! Here he is watching porn:

Walking a bike uphill. It's so cute that they went bike riding together. :)

JMFJ actually made the joke that pretty much everyone has been making about him doing Donuts' contract (because JMFJ negotiated his own contract). From Player/Agent Johnson enjoys both roles:

One young Kings defenseman avoided contract drama last season. Jack Johnson signed a seven-year, $30.5-million contract extension in January, and not only did Johnson get the deal done months before he was slotted to be a restricted free agent, he essentially negotiated the deal himself, without an agent. Johnson, now in the first year of that new deal, was on the ice today partnered with Rob Scuderi, and afterward he talked about Doughty’s absence and his own thoughts on contract negotiation.

Question: What are your thoughts on Drew Doughty not being here?

JOHNSON: “It’s the business side of it. It’s the part of the sport that sucks, but it’s got to get done. It’s totally between him and his agent and Kings management.”

Question: And it creates something of a ripple effect. It maybe opens up a spot for a younger defenseman…

JOHNSON: “He might be here tomorrow or he might not be here for a few weeks. You don’t know. So you’ve just got to kind of improvise, adapt and overcome. We know he will be here eventually. Like I said, it’s the business side of it. Stuff like this happens.”

Question: You were in a different situation last year, when you basically negotiated your own contract. What was that like?

JOHNSON: “I kiddingly told Drew that I would have done his for free. I enjoyed it. I thought it was easy to do. You just sit down with Kings management. I told them I didn’t want to play games with them or anything. I’m not doing this `high-low’ stuff. It was, `Let’s be fair, let’s get it done,’ and it was easy to do. I can’t imagine not doing one by myself ever again. But everyone is different. Everyone has different needs. Me personally, I’ll probably do every contract myself.”

In one of the comments they mentioned that he was driving a red Ferrari, which he'd mentioned that he was going to buy after he signed his extension last year.

  • Wine weekend!

    Just got back from a weekend in Wine Country. Ate lots of good food, tasted some wine and played Codenames and One Night Ultimate Werewolf at night.…

  • AO3 initialized!

    A month and a half later, I have finally started posting old fic to AO3! :P Best of Seven I will add more whenever I'm not lazy, heh heh.

  • Dude, where's my site?

    So apparently my fic site has been deleted. Don't really feel like hunting down free web hosting so I might start putting it on AO3. Is that pretty…
