Not dead yet.




Just a quick word to say we haven't pulled a Pleasure Motors and packed it in. I've been out of the country for the last couple of weeks (and have thus missed the Oilers storming out of the gate with three straight lopsided marginal victories) and God only knows where the other people who "work" here are doing with their time. Probably more important things than blogging about hockey. Tonight's another edition of the BoA and I'll be glued to MotherCorp, wearing my Flames-hatin' pants and cursing the tiny tyrants with small dicks who make up the Oilers' PR department. Goilers.

We played a lot better in the 2nd half than the score indicates. We also played a lot worse in the 1st period than our fate deserves.

Thank god for Garon.

Visnovsky looked lost with Souray and Smid looked better than Strudwick tonight.

Has MacT's challenge worked?

I'm somewhat perversely pleased with the Big Lubowski's underwhelming performance so far, as it validates my love for the departed Pitkanen. Granted, Puts got us Cole, who is wicked good, so...sunrise...sunset.

The Big Lubowski! Ha that's rich. The great thing about Cole is he can fit on almost line, as can Nilsson and Penner. Gives us lots of options.

Thanks David, although it somewhat old news...it was broadcasted last year.

and God only knows where the other people who "work" here are doing with their time.

I wake up at 6:30. Fight traffic. Sit on my desk for 9 hours. Fight Traffic again. Then I study 3-4 hours.

And then I pay my taxes.

God, I can't wait for this phase of life to be over.

If The Man is going to make you work for 9 whole hours, they should at least buy you a chair.

So you too crave the sweet release of death?
