Hockey night tonight … thank goodness


Man, that night off from the playoffs got me all jittery.

Jittery because I’ve become somewhat addicted to these playoffs, and especially because I didn’t  have time to catch a lot of the two games this weekend.

And because I keep getting these reminders of what the off-season is going to be like when the games finally stop.

Plus, with all this bryzgalov rain, I can’t even go have a crucial meeting with Mr. T. Not that I’ve had time for that, either.

Today, I got nothin’.

Except this: The Rangers were 2-0 against the two finalists in the West.

And this: Have you seen this commercial for Wal-Mart where the two little girls are asking their mom why she’s putting this cream on her face, and she says it makes her look younger? They ask her if it works and she says it does. And in the next scene, the two girls are on the couch and their grandfather is sleeping, and they’re just slathering his face with the cream like it’s mayonnaise and saying how happy he’s going to be when he wakes up.

I don’t know. It cracked me up.

  1. Good morning, Carp! LMAO at the anti aging ads —->

    Congrats to all the contest winners yesterday (True Blue AND Mao)!

  2. Will miss the game tonight as I’ll be playing. The playoffs have been very entertaining to watch. I think I’ve watched more playoffs this year than the last two years combined.

  3. Good morning, boneheads! I like that commercial too…”He’s going to look like a baby…”

    Ha! They were 2-0 against the two finalists in the West, true…Is there any momentum from regular season games to PO? If yes, the SC would be ours! :-)

  4. Mao 1
    Everybody Else 0

    How is Sally not out to an early lead in the lunch competition?


    Haven’t posted lately. Been really busy, but I listen to PuckDaddy Radio every day and I heard this interview. It was chilling. I wanted to post it yesterday and quote what was said, but this link is an official summary of the quotes.

    I don’t wanna jump to conclusions regarding Boogaard’s passing. But, if the stories of these episodes are true, you are gonna see an end to fighting in the NHL. You will DEFINITELY see a serious campaign to END fighting in the NHL. It has already started.

    I was so sad when i heard of Boogards passing, and i felt even worse watching him score his first goal in 200+ games and first goal as a Ranger. However, i am really angry to already see all the knee-jerk reactions to Boogard’s death without even knowing what happened. Fighting is a part of hockey and should always be part of hockey. Perhaps the enforcer should be done with and we should have more “Prust, Avery, Carcillo, Cooke typer players” without the cooke, avery, Carcillo type cheap shots but fighting in general should not be condemned because of his death and because of other concussions. If you listen to the above interview posted by CW you hear what Boogard says ” I can’t do your job, so don’t try and do mine”. I don’t know about you guys but if someone told me i would pay you 1.5million dollars a year to play on the Rangers from age 18-28 but there is a 75 per cent chance of you dieng at 28, i would sign that contract. These players love what they do and they know what comes with it. Fighting is a part of the game and it always will be.

  7. CW – thanks for that link. I actually missed listening to Puck Daddy Radio for the first time in weeks that day so I am really happy you pointed that out.

    Morning ILB and all!

    True Blue
    I know, I was worried about the knee jerk as well. I bet if someone could ask derek today about fighting he would absolutely say it needed to be in the game and is part of the fabric of the game. I’m sure mario and mario maloney and people of their ilk will have a field day with this if it does indeed (IF) end up being a primary cause in the passing of derek. Sadly, he passed way way early for anyone and that should be the one and only thing talked about, but people like the above mentioned will undoubtedly use it to their advantage if possible (and sadly so).

  9. Look some people get punched in the head and live a long time and some get punched in the head and don’t. Some people smoke and live to 100 and some people don’t. Some people survive cancer. Some people don’t. It is all individual. Fighting is a part of hockey and should remain so.

    atta boy manny ATTA BOY!!!!!

    I thought that was mayo carp?

  12. I love mayo. I know many people that find it disgusting. I don’t understand those people. Mayo is unreal.

  13. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    oh, that’s right. But only on the blue ones…correct?

  14. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Even better is subbing face cream for mayo in macoroni salad… Face cream is also tasty with roast beef.

  15. eddie eddie eddie on

    i rip each whisker out one by one with tweasers….takes forever, but feels really good

  16. Oh…Maybe the actually treat mayonnaise. Like to take sick mayo and make it healthy?

  17. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    don’t you make your salads while showering?

  18. On that knee-jerk situation. Let’s wait for the official results of autopsy before we even talk about fighting. We do not know. Fighting is a part of hockey, and it isn’t the only reason players get concussed.

  19. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I can’t wait for the dog days of summer here, it’s going to be GOLD, PURE GOLD!!

    carp, save me a seat!!

  20. I hadn’t seen the Wal Mart commercial. Maybe it isn’t being shown in my area. Anyway I’m always a sucker for cute kids acting cute.

    As for fighting, it isn’t what it used to be. It used to serve as a deterrent to dirty plays, but with the instigator rule all that usually happens is that one goon fights the other team’s goon.

  21. *Lunch Entry*
    My initial lunch was tossed aside at the mention of the words “free” and “bagels” and “in the break room.” I hurried off to this lush wonderland where I found, to my delight, a tray filled with delectable delights. As a consequence of my adventure and bold exploration, a ménage of bagels populated my lunch plate. Bagels that were indeed miniature in size, yet big on flavor. One sesame, one poppy and one plain. All were doused with a smearing of Philadelphia style creamed cheese and toasted to sweet perfection.

  22. I feel like we are being bad kids by being in the wrong room right now or something.

  23. Manny,

    There’s some comma usage issues, but other than that, an excellent post about an excellent lunch.

    I had a delicious pasta salad consisting of tri-color rotini pasta, cubed salami, cubed ham, cubed American cheese, and a delicious cilantro dressing.

  24. We can transfer it over, Manny. I just said that cause I wasn’t sure if any other lunch posts were on different threads.

  25. Hi, I do think this is an excellent web site.

    I stumbledupon it ;) I may revisit yet again since i have book marked it.
    Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to help others.
