Sabres Win!!! I Still Hate Phil Kessel

by Anne


Wooooo!!! Ok, so I can't deny that sometimes I'm kid of glad I don't watch every second of every home game, especially when they're a snooze fest like Boston games usually are. I prefer to chat with the ushers about the trap and how Manny Fernandez was great when he played for Minnesota and he hasn't played in like a year.

Anyway, who else had a sense of deja vu from Saturday's game? Trailing by 2, tie it up, 3-2 shootout decision. The only difference was we won this shoot out and there was less violence because the Boston Bruins pick "boring" over "punchy".

THOMAS VANEK DIDN'T SCORE A GOAL. OFF WITH HIS HEAD. Ok, well he did score the game-winning shootout goal. WHAT IS HIS DEAL?! WHATEVER IT IS, I LOVE HIS DEAL.

Things that happened tonight that don't happen every night:
  • I sold popcorn to my AP Economics teacher from high school. He did not recognize me. Of course, rarely in high school did I wear a black baseball cap and a black and white refs shirt with price buttons on them. I said RARELY.
  • KATEBITS WAS THERE!! And because I'm a loser and am terrified my students will find this blog one day, we did not take a picture. HOWEVER, KATEBITS, I REALIZED THAT THE PICTURE WOULD IN FACT BE ON YOUR BLOG AND NOT MINE, SO, GAME ON SISTER FRIEND, WE CAN POSE WITH THE DIET COKE AND COTTON CANDY.
  • I ran out of quarters just as Katebits came through my line. HOW EMBARRASSING.
  • A drunk man asked me for my phone number
  • A girl paid for her popcorn with 4 $1 coins
I watched the shootout up in the stands because that's actually a lot more fun that watching it from the zamboni doors with the ice people and the guys who bring in and out those awning things because they block the ice and you have to watch on the screen, and whats the fun in that?



Dear Derek Roy,

Anytime you want to get a notch in that "G" column, that'd be SUPER. Also, I fail to see how you were more of a "star" in this game than Drew Stafford.

Love, Anne


The stars of the game were Miller, Roy and Vanek. I agree with 2 and 3, but Royzie over Staffy? Did he have some SICK passes that I missed?

OMG HOW RELIEVED AM I THAT DREW FINALLY SCORED. He's been solid for us in the shootout, it's great that he's finally gotten a regulation tally, and what a beauty of a goal it was. He's had so many chances and so many shots on goal early on this season (5 tonight alone) so its really really great to see him able to light the lamp, finally!!

Speaking of face offs that we weren't talking about, I've been impressed by Kotalik's face off numbers, the last few I can remember checking for him have been about 50%. He doesn't take that many but he wins most of them, and that's what counts. Matt Ellis was 0 for 6 on the face offs. I'm pretty indifferent about him at this point.

My inexplicable hatred for Mr. Yick continues. HE RUINED OUR PERFECT PENALTY KILL AND I'LL NEVER FORGIVE HIM. But then he didn't score in the shootout and I got way more excited than I should have about it. P to the S, I know he had testicular cancer and he's played incredibly well since then. My dislike for him is totally unrelated to his medical problems. That's Phil Kessel the human being, him I'm fine with, Phil Kessel the hockey player is yicky.

Petteri Nokelainen is a really fun name to say.

Danny Paille and I should compare iPod playlists sometime because most of the songs he usually picks for player tunes are on my iPod. Except for Saving Abel, I have no idea who that is.

WHO DO YOU THINK GOT THE PIGEON? DO YOU THINK ITS MILLSY? I VOTE FOR MILLER. BUT STAFFY WAS PRETTY OUTSTANDING, SO IF HE GETS THE PIGEON I'D BE OK WITH THAT TOO.

In other NHL news, the man I almost chose as my Detroit Red Wings WCB, Andreas Lilja just had an appendectomy... like 5 days after Chris Mason had an appendectomy. HOCKEY PLAYERS: PLEASE CHECK ON THE HEALTH OF YOUR APPENDIXES, (APPENDICES?.... APPARENTLY BOTH ARE GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT).

Apparently word that I've declared Ryan Getzlaf my Ducks WCB has not reached him, as he was unable to score tonight, but perhaps George Parros heard and the Ducks won anyway, WOO!

Dear Vancouver, didn't you put Kyle Wellwood on waivers? Was that someone else? He scored for you tonight, so I'm assuming I am not correct. Apparently Rick Nash realizes how fickle my love is and decided to score a goal to ensure my loyalty, BIG BEAR.

OMG, THE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING FINALLY WON.

As of this posting, the Flames are up 2-1 over the Caps with the King of the Western Conference of my heart, Iggy, getting a PP tally. :) In other news, Caps red and Flames red are annoyingly similar but one is more blue (Caps) and one is more orange (Flames). In case you were wondering, yes I'm very particular about color and shades of color.

Oscar just attempted to jump from my bookshelf to my chest of drawers unsuccessfully. His front paws landed in my jewelry box and sent both it and himself flying. Fortunately I only own like 3 necklaces and about 5 pairs of earrings so the damage was not catastrophic and he's completely embarrassed and won't let me pick him to to check to see if he's accidentally pierced anything. I'm going to go ahead and assume he's fine. He got two breakfasts this morning, so I don't feel bad. Now he's fast asleep next to me on my bed. He's so freakin' cute. I hate cats. haha.

I love Trent Edwards. Check out First Time Long Time for a link to a great interview with him. He does Buffalo proud.



Woo! Grizz!
For some reason this picture makes me laugh.
He kind of looks like he's about to burst into song.
That might be a brilliant diversionary tactic, what do you think a defenseman would do if Clarke MacArthur came zooming over the blue line singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" at the top of his lungs?

  1. The Canucks did indeed waive Wellwood, but then half our forward line up decided to remember that they're made of cotton candy and duct tape, so he got called back up to cover the injuries. He had 2 points after not skating for 5 days. I swear he's like the weirdest hockey player ever. You just have no idea how he gets all these points out of nowhere!

    Anyways, Big Bear tried to score a very sexy halfway breakaway goal for you, but Leclaire was sadly too good a goalie.

  2. Don't hate on the Bruins! They're my extremely sub-par professional sports team replacement for the Red Sox. I haven't even picked a team boyfriend yet.

    It probably won't be Kessel, and although he is actually my age, a great hockey player, apparently biffles with Gerbe and has battled cancer like Jon Lester, there is something about him hockeywise that I don't like. In other words, I sort of concur with your hatred, but since he plays in my city and actually helps our team I can't hate him.

    Oh yeah, the Bruins losing three games in shootouts already this season = weakkkk. I must say though, Miller's last save was sweet.

    Listen Kyle Wellwood, no one likes a show off!

    Sigh. As long as he's trying, I suppose all is forgiven.

    My overall feeling towards the Bruins can best be described as "eh."

    I hate them the required amount for being in our division and they're good enough to give us a headache, but not good enough that I hate them like FOR REALS.

    I have nothing against Phil Kessel the human being and I love that he and Gerbs are bros. I marvel at his success and determination after battling cancer at such a young age... but I still hate him on the ice.

    HE SHOULD MOST DEFINITELY TRY IT. I'd pay money to see him sing. He looks like he's trying to woo the voters on American Idol...

  7. Staffy totally deserved a star... but not a single Bruin recieved a star so let us giggle with that in mind.

    Yes... Phil Kessel irks me to know end... they talk about him like he is some sort of hockey God... um no.

    Millsie rawk'ed the nets with his acrobatics last night! Whoo Hoo! He got the pigeon!

    Because I'm crazy, for some reason I didn't immediately think "G" meant "goal" but rather "gangsta". That sentence then seemed like a distressed call to Roy-Z, urging him to listening to some more rap music or something!

    Clarke strikes me as the type who would go with the "hit on Paula" tactic.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't get it. haha

    Well now that you mention it, Derek should really go whole hog with this "hip-hop glam" style he adores, come on, Royzie, rock it out with the Lil Wayne! WOOO!
