Evgeni Malkin = Monster


There, I took your suggestion for a headline, CCCP. We aim to please here at the Festivus Blog.

In other news, Josh Thomson (photo on the right side of the page) is no longer 26.

Finally, don’t forget — you ballot-box stuffers — that today at noon is the deadline for the Paul Mara Rangers Report Playoff Beard Extravaganza (OK, I got a little carried away with the title).

Cast your last-minute ballots here.

I was really happy with the participation in terms of number of beards and the number of votes cast.

Today I have a long, long meeting with Mr. Titleist again, including dinner. So I may not check back in until late tonight. On Friday, I’m going to New Orleans for some R&R, and will also do some RR (Rangers Report) from the road. So I’ll post instructions for the winner(s) to claim their grand, grand prizes.

Since this is a hockey site, maybe I should add some hockey here. But I’ve got nothing except: These playoffs have been phenomenal so far. Great games, great players, great passion. Maybe next year your NYR can hang in there a little longer, because that would really be fun for me, and for all of us here.

    Nice try Chris Drury ..or shall I say Salty!!!

  6. I’m actually NOT “the Chris Drury” (if I do post, I’ve used “Another Chris Drury”)… although I was skimming through yesterday and the day before and the “clutchness” posts are HILARIOUS.

    I think it’s TrueFans though, he seems to be one of the few others who loves to hate the Drury hype as much as me.

    well salty , it’s kinda wrote in a way that you write your posts , but Truefans did cross my mind but it’s definatly your style of writing. My answer , hate to say it …is Clutch!!!!

    Captain Clutch update: Clutchmobile update!

    Took the Clutchmobile back to the dealer today! How could you sell a Clutchmobile to Captain Clutch with no clutch! Not clutch bro!

    Turns out there was a mix-up, they sold me a Malikmobile! Now I know why other cars kept flying right past me! Ha-Ha! Maybe I should get one for Redden! Ha-Ha!

    The salesman Mr. Pearn was great! He said he was new at this job, so I traded him an autographed mouthpiece for free undercoating! So clutch! What a winner!

    The clutchmobile now has clutch!!! Sleep time! Maybe I’ll check in tomorrow afternoon after I wake up! I call it the Carp schedule! Ha-Ha!

  9. lol Happy belated birthday Josh! I was wondering if they’d ever update that…He interviewed me during the playoff series against Atlanta the night we beat them 7-0. Good guy.

    Carp- enjoy your trip. Eat something good at one of Emeril’s restaraunts for me.
