    Repost for mama:

    Orr, haven’t seen the new Elm Street yet. Doesn’t sound like it’s worth a watch…

    Blogmama, in the original Bad News Bears (1976), there was a character named Kelly Leak (smoking, trouble-making long-haired pitcher). Pitcher from SF Giants has same haircut (lack thereof).

    Taking it further, the actor who portrayed Kelly Leak (Jackie Earle Haley) also played Rorschach in the movie Watchmen (2009).

    He also played Freddy Krueger in the recent remake of Nightmare on Elm Street.

    I think i was just Carped…

    Blogmama this is to clear up my previous post, this it what I wrote pre-Carping:

    oops sorry, I suck at typing, I think about what i want to type in my head but it usually doesn’t translate from my brain to my fingers to the keyboard to well.

    what i meant to say was that “he basically just bumped a Maple Leave”

  3. Blue Seat Horror on

    One thing about the Devils winning is I get to say it again:

    The Price is WROOONG, Bob!

  4. Hey Carp,

    Is there anything you can do about the typeface? It’s hideous and much too small for old men like you and me. Ha ha.

  5. Blue Seat, ha! I copied this for all who got carp’d:

    And just fyi, the original …I mean original…Bad News Bears was an awesome movie.

    however, best sports movie, Caddyshack, celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. 30! I belatedly read a great story about it in Sports Illustrated of all places….be the ball.

  6. thanks N.Country, again….you rock :)

    olga, i think Lin is right, now matter who plays, your right hand smacks the left side of your face and vice versa. :)

  7. Olga Folkyerself on

    Mama- I gotta go with Slap Shot. Caddyshack is about , well, golf. It’s not really a sport you know…

  8. Olga, excellent rejoinder. and I agree. but like in life, hockey movies are only popular among hockey freaks like us….um, I mean I’m not a freak, but you know what I’m saying. Still adore Caddyshack.

  9. N.Country….I have a standing dealio on Thursdays which is I why I miss games those days. I usually get home by 9:30. May I count on you to be my recap man on those days? mama love……:)

  10. N.CountryNYRFan on

    I know Linda it would have been nice if the Pens and Devils lost tonight, it would have made our win that much sweeter.

  11. Fair comment Olga. “Pool and a pond, pond would be good for you though”…..not personal, just quoting for fun.

    Let em know you’re there!!!

  12. N.CountryNYRFan on

    I’ll try Mama but in a few weeks my Thursdays as well as my Mondays will be hit or miss as my mens league hockey starts up. I play on mostly Mondays from November – April, but also plan on playing more Thurs nights as well this year.

  13. Olga Folkyerself on

    Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?
    [looks at Judge Smails, who’s wearing the same hat]
    Oh, it looks good on you though.

  14. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Hahaha…Olga…that is a great movie, but your right Slapshot takes the cake.

    I love Bill Murray in Caddyshack…

  15. LindaCalPruBoylahan on

    NC, since I only live 2 hours away, I’ve kinda adopted the Preds as my team to watch other than my beloved Rangers. I get to watch them on a TV screen frequently, and appreciate the effort they put forth, Shea Weber is a beast, and their TV announcers are a hoot.

  16. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Carl ( Bill Murray) – Correct me if I’m wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they’re gonna lock me up and throw away the key…

  17. Olga Folkyerself on

    See Linda- when you root for Sather’s Rangers you need a second team for the playoffs. And it can’t be an Eastern team because they all suck after beating the Rangers so many times.

  18. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Orr…I just saw some upsetting news…Maria Sharapova is engaged…I always thought she was a hot Russian.

  19. N.Country, fair enough. I thank you for tonight!

    Olga, (and I don’t have to google this)…I was born, to love you, I was born to …ahhh. in hindsight not a good line to post. How about, my arm, my arm!

  20. LindaCalPruBoylahan on

    lmao Olga!

    I think the only Eastern team I’d not be disgusted by their winning *a* Cup would probably be the Caps because I have a really great friend who is a huge, lifelong, die hard Caps fan, and I’d like him to experience the thrill of a championship.

  21. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?

    Oh, this your wife, huh? A lovely lady. Hey baby, you must’ve been something before electricity.

  23. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    I hear this place is restricted, Wang, so don’t tell ’em you’re Jewish, okay?

  24. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Lacey Underall: My uncle says you’ve got a screw loose.
    Ty Webb: Your uncle molests collies.

  25. HA! LMAO…see, ya just just can’t help yourself with this flick. Classic! And, now I get ready to get carp’d with post game notes….s’alright. You’ll get nothing and like it!

  26. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    It’s easy to grin
    When your ship comes in
    And you’ve got the stock market beat.
    But the man worthwhile,
    Is the man who can smile,
    When his shorts are too tight in the seat.

  27. LindaCalPruBoylahan on

    lmao @ austin powers… very nice Ogie, austin powers was also wayne campbell, who was a hockey fan and went to stan mikita’s donuts

  28. N.CountryNYRFan on

    I’ve got both movies in my dvd collection, these posts are making me want to watch them now.

  29. N.CountryNYRFan on

    you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know. And then you get free.

    Thats one of the best lines, you go to the box and you feel shame…hahaha!!

  30. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Hey Mr. Donut Man, who’s trying to kill ya? I don’t know but they better not!

  31. N.CountryNYRFan on

    see a Rangers win puts everyone in a good mood and out come the movie qoutes.

    Well i think it’s off to bed soon for me.

  32. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    I say hurl. If you blow chunks and she comes back, she’s yours. But if you spew and she bolts, then it was never meant to be.

  33. Olga, you’re right! There is so little from Slap Shot that can be quoted here! Caddy, however….Doody!

    Oy. time for mama to say niters…you all have fun :) niters and TA!

    thanks again N.Country….go watch…:)

  34. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country’s refusal to accept him, well, I guess that’s more than most 21-year-olds can handle… Ogie Ogilthorpe!

  35. wicky© (Our D is a bunch of poussins and belongs in MAMBY PAMBY LAND!!!!) on

    Sweet win……..

    ILB
    yes, as many as you want.

    Linda/orr
    It doesn’t have to be him, just someone that plays that style!

    Biron looked very good….did gilly play in the 3rd??…..rozy played better (not saying much)……Boogie rattled orr with that one shot and definitely landed more punches, but orr got the take down (I think orr knew he was in trouble and take down was his best way out) so draw……..avery and dubi both took bad slashing penalties….prust is invaluable….avery had another very good game despite the slashing penalty….if we could just hit the net…….disappointed in the chippyness factor…….dubi, for a bigger player, is kind of a wuss. no edge to his game when there should be (like nose to nose with armstrong in the crease and he backs down of course)…..I think gilroy should be traded before he loses all confidence (I ask again, did he play in the 3rd??)

  36. wicky© (Our D is a bunch of poussins and belongs in MAMBY PAMBY LAND!!!!) on

    grabby
    that movie is pretty good!

  37. mao_del_zedongo on

    I give Boogie man the win…that one punch was very hard…only Orr’s toughness keeps him afloat there…the take down was nothing more than an escape hatch as wicky stated

  38. a wicky….as I said, missed the game, so saving judgment…but happy for the win…catch you all tomorrow.

    double niters :)

  39. what can i say? Rangers played a great game! Much needed win…

    btw, was that Larry Brooks at the end of the game standing there with a notebook as the Rangers were walking to the locker? lol

  40. Sharapova engaged? Meh, no big deal. She’s a has been these days.

    I just saw some new nudie pics of Miranda Kerr, that reminded me how much of a babe that Aussie is. Legolas knocked her up. Damn him, he should be lingering in Lothlórien with his own kind instead of messing around with our kind!

  41. wicky© (Our D is a bunch of poussins and belongs in MAMBY PAMBY LAND!!!!) on

    mama
    nice laurel!!!!

    night assens!!

  42. it looked like they were in the “protect Biron” mode. wish they would have that same mentality every game

  43. cw looking forward to 2012. . . . with tempered optimism. on

    Good news and bad news re: Boogy v. Orr tilt:

    Good news is that Orr actually did a very good job, and at worst won on decision. That’s good because other goons may have just realized that Boogy is mortal.

    Bad news is that Boogy didn’t beat Orr, and Sather just signed Boogy (who can’t play an NHL shift) for 4 yrs, when he coulda signed Orr (who can BARELY skate an NHL shift with his ankle bending).

    Let me be the first to say it: Boogy is not long for this team. Sather should BEG Sutter to take this guy off of his hands. I mean hand and knees beg.

  44. cw looking forward to 2012. . . . with tempered optimism. on

    3 things I take from the game:
    1. Brandon Prust is the prototypical 21st century “enforcer.” You HAVE to be able to play in today’s NHL. Give us one more Prust, and one less Boogaard.
    2. Keeping Stepan-Avery-Feds & AA-Duby-Cally lines is crucial going forward. The chemistry is there.
    3. We have one hell of a backup goalie in Hank.

  45. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    The rangers paid brash 1.9 mil (roughly?) last year, and commited 6.5mil to this neanderthal when they could have just kept Orr for 4 yrs, 1mil per… go sather!

    Orr does get an early punch in there before boogie can get his gloves off, but still, this only shows that boogie will eventually be sharing the bill for team meals with Redden.

  46. cw looking forward to 2012. . . . with tempered optimism. on

    Hockeyfightsdotcom has a video of the orr-Boogy fight. Most voted Boogy the winner with Orr yanking him down to save himself. In hindsight, it was a pretty good fight, but again, I have to say that Boogy is a dinosaur in the new NHL.

  47. cw looking forward to 2012. . . . with tempered optimism. on

    And one thing I like about Boogy is that he shows no emotion. Like a White Shark. Lifeless eyes. He belongs in an MMA octogon. Not an NHL arena.

  48. Boogy’s gonna have to learn to skate to play the game. Maybe he should see that coach Boyle was seeing in the off season. LOL @ the legolas mention. Did I mention how much I hate Jersey shore today? If not, -clears throat- I BYFUGLIEN HATE JERSEY BYFUGLIEN SHORE!!!!!!!!!!

  49. I disagree with you who fault Boogard for inadequacy. He landed about 4-p5 really good rocking shots directly on Orr,s phiz, and you could see the desperation in Orr’s eyes when he finally had to grab Boogard and wrestle him to the ice. You could also see the contempt in Boogard’s face as he skated unmarked to the box. You folks are way too critical. The guy is not the second coming of Brian Boitano, but he’s not the collossus of Rhodes either. He’ll do the job they signed him for. Leave him be.

    Isn;t it remarkable how having his forwards plunk a few goals increase a goaltenders proficiency?

    I really like the way Biron plays the position. He stands and faces the shooters and he uses whatever technique is appropriate for the situation. He will use a butterfly when necessary…but he’s not wedded to the tactic like Lundqvist is. He is also much quicker than I thought he was.

    If that had been LAQ in the nets, he’s have been on his knees for most of those shots, and for most of the game. I just do not see this adoration for LQ as to his technique. He seems to have captured the NY mystique be becoming a folk hero. Since about the middle of last season to the present time, hehas shown himself to be very very ordinary. ( Which by the way, he always was when he came from Europe..he was not the stellar figure he became over here.)

    Iwas amazed at the vigor and ferocity that Roszival played with last night. I have always said that he can play this game….but that he just didn’t. He hopefully has embarked on a new out look that l
    hope will enhance his stature, and make him useful, instead of a waste of time.

    What truly opened my eyes was the excellent defense played by Sauer! This guy is a very good defenseman. And what can you say about Callahan? Lord that smallish body encloses a heart of steel.

    All in all..a fine courage building performance that we can hope lingers on to the Bruin’s game.

  50. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    Haha… lq is the man, theres a reason Tsn ranked him nhl’s second vest goalie.
    Boogie will not play out his whole contract, he is inept at his overall duty of being a forward which is a significant problem when only 1 other nhl player will fight him.

    BTW… T-shirt time!

  51. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    Idk what 2nd vest goalies are, but LQ is better described as the nhl’s 2nd best.
