#2113402 And he does it again!

Posted by Kira on 09 February 2011 - 09:23 AM

I fear that it's going to take a player ending up in a coma before they finally put the blame where it belongs - on Cooke's shoulders.


#2113039 And he does it again!

As stated in "Pirate Radio"..."Spoken like a five-star chicken."

Of course, Andrew Ference comes out and says his teammate was wrong, and gets raked over the coals for it. I shouldn't be surprised that no one wants to come out and tell the truth about Cooke.

Someone is going to get him. I don't know who, and I don't know when, but it's gonna happen. And it won't be pretty when it does. But if he expects to get sympathy when and if it happens, the only place he's gonna find it is the dictionary.


#2112917 Top 5 Movies You Turned Off/Walked Out Of

"The Freshman" doesn't ring a bell, I am sad to say.

We've been known to use lines out of "O Brother" in public if the right situation arises. It's one of those movies where we pretty much know a lot of the dialog by heart. And the music is perfect. It deserved the Grammy that it got.


#2107596 NHLPA/CBC Player Poll Results

Posted by Kira on 31 January 2011 - 10:57 AM

I was actually a bit surprised that in almost every category for forwards it was either Dats then Crosby, or Crosby then Dats. The players know that he's in the top 5 of players in the NHL, but apparently the NHL and a lot of its fans don't think so.


Well, you know what they say...artists are never appreciated in their own time.

And as far as Pasha being the second smartest player in the league, I'm sorry, but he's got more smarts in the fingernail of his pinky than that thing in Pittsburgh could ever dream of having in his whole body - ever.

My housemate tried watching "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", made it through about an hour and 15 minutes, and said, "You're right. You have to be either drunk or seriously medicated to watch this." She gave up. Can't say I blame her.


#2106509 Datsyuk Taken off IR, Emmerton and Mursak sent back to GR

Oh, who cares about the technicalities??? Welcome back, Pasha. You were missed more than you'll ever know.


#2103540 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Kira on 22 January 2011 - 06:10 PM

Okay, so he told the Islanders to take a hike...and now what happens is up in the air again.

This is the biggest soap opera since the Manny/Cujo/Hasek debacle.

The waiting game sucks, let's play Hungry Hungry Hippos.


Sounds good, but isn't it kinda hard to play that with hockey gloves on?


#2102079 Datsyuk, Cleary, and Homer likely back Feb 2nd

Posted by Kira on 21 January 2011 - 04:30 PM

Dear God, I have missed Pasha so damned much. And you can tell it's not the same without him out there. It'll be so good to see him back!


#2101805 Which NHL player have you met

Posted by Kira on 21 January 2011 - 11:59 AM

I have a couple of stories to share with you.

I have a very dear friend named Julie, who, unfortunately, is confined to a wheelchair. She had a wonderful picture of her with Jiri Fischer that she had always wanted him to sign, but could never get done. A couple years ago at camp, one of the volunteers asked if she had the picture with her. He took it to Jiri, and he signed it for her, along with the words, "Sometimes, life is better than we think it is. " When he brought the picture back to her, she and I both were in tears. It was such a sweet and wonderful thing.

A couple years before that, she was close to getting Scotty Bowman to stop and talk to her, but he got mobbed by people. He looked at her and said, "Maybe tomorrow I'll come out." She said it was okay, and didn't think about it. A few minutes later, someone tapped her on the shoulder and said, "He wants to see you."

"He who?"

"Mr. Bowman." He had gone over to where Julie and her husband had parked their jeep and was waiting for her. They sat and talked, just the two of them, for about 15 minutes. She said it was the thrill of a lifetime. I guess good things do come to those who wait.


#2094549 Is the Western Conference better?

Posted by Kira on 09 January 2011 - 11:31 AM

I think the West is tougher. If you look at the standings in the East, teams that would make the playoffs there wouldn't even stand a chance in the West. I think we have it tougher because of the travel as well. It does play havoc on the body, there's no mistake about it. Eastern Conference teams when they play each other, it's mostly a hop, skip and jump to wherever the game is, but out in the West, it isn't that easy.

I'd be willing to bet that if we were in the East (oh please make it so), we'd be a very dominant team...more than we already are.


#2092334 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Posted by Kira on 07 January 2011 - 10:44 AM

Hit his head too hard on the headboard while Bettman was coming from behind

Sad way to get injured



Ouch! But perfect answer.

By the way, if he's looking for sympathy, I have a dictionary within arm's reach.

I've heard people say that Crosby didn't seem all there when commenting after the game.


Like that's anything uncommon?

Posted by Kira on 29 December 2010 - 01:31 PM

Oh dear God, I'll be laughing like hell if that's the case. :rotflmao:

Maybe even Mother Nature has had enough of having Crosby/Ovechkin shoved down her throat and is on our side.

LET IT POUR!!!!!!!!!!!

They're talking about rain and 40 degrees around here New Year's Day. I hate to be mean, but I'd laugh my ass off if it poured rain in Pittsburgh that day. It would be poetic justice.


#2077229 Datsyuk, Crosby. On a level of their own.

Posted by Kira on 13 December 2010 - 06:41 PM

There is a huge difference between Pasha and that other little douchebag. You'll not see Pasha being a media hog, and he puts team first. During the interview after the game the other night, he said, "We won the game, that's more important." You sure as hell won't hear that other media hog say something like that. While every sports writer in humanity is kissing up to Crosby's little ass, Pasha goes out and quietly does his job, night after night. And we who really know the way it is appreciate him for it.
