Holy crap. Been awhile, eh? I run a tight ship around here, obviously. Obviously, I haven't posted since December 28th, closing in on three weeks. I assure you, it has nothing to do with you, and everything to do with a wonderful vacation to Florida to visit my parents. I did watch a Panthers game on TV while I was down there, before my dad changed the channel to Blue Bloods on CBS. I love him, but Dad doesn't appreciate sports the way I do. I don't know if I could have handled the sports guys talking about Marian GaBORK much longer anyways.
Yeah, so anyways, drinking game. Buffalo and Chicago make me think less about Florida less than almost any other cities in the country. Even, say, Anchorage, I say "boy, that's really far from Florida". Now that I am away from Florida, I don't like to acknowledge the existance of said state, because it's sadly so, so far away. I kill the memories with booze.
... once if you don't know who the leading scorer is for either team, then once for every time that player touches the puck. (It's Marian Hossa and Jason Pominville. I would have been wrong twice).
... 3 for Daniel Carcillo, who is out for the season. One for every minute in the box/game he had.
... Every time Jochen Hecht gets a mention. It is my belief that he has played in 47% of the regular season games of the past 20 years, but he's only played for 3 teams. Amazing.
... Whenever the word "tenure" is mentioned, as it pertains to Lindy Ruff
DRINKING PLAYER OF THE GAME: Jonathan Toews!
This is actually the second time Toews has been the drinking player of the game. OR at least, as far as I can tell. It's from the Talk-Sports forum that we get this terrible news:
This is eternalcanadian (can't log in via Blackberry)--Anonymous (Rookie) it is not just in this forum that things are being deleted, it's also happening in other forums. Either people are saying nasty things that Randy (Talk-Sports Dude) deletes and bans or someone paid a lot of money to get the delete trigger button. Either way, kinda takes the fun out of good catty gossip, just saying. :)
NO MORE CATTY GOSSIP?! What will we do?! BMR thrives on catty gossip!
