Dirk Nowitzki rules! … Europansy

425

But enough about the NBA. Well, ok, maybe not enough.

I absolutely hate the 2-3-2 format for best-of-sevens, but at this stage of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the 2-2-1-1-1 is really wearing on the players and coaches and trainers and equipment guys and media and anybody else who is working on the finals. I can tell you from experience. Actually, the players and coaches are probably least affected by it, since they charter everywhere and don’t deal with customs or luggage check or meals on the road or cabs or parking or middle seats or overbooked flights or long security lines or cavity searches.

But I digress. And a couple more things on the NBA finals. Do the Knicks, with two good players — neither in the top 10 in the league — really think they’re close, when the Heat, with three of the best, two of the top five, couldn’t win it? And did we really need to see so much of Mark Cuban? And were both arenas in the series named American Airlines? And who was that comatose reporter doing post-game interviews? Kind of nice when a road team wins and we don’t have to see the confetti and the fireworks and all that idiocy.

OK, enough of that.

As I told youse earlier, I am out of here for a week. Not my choice. Gotta take a week off, can’t blog, can’t comment, can’t do anything work related. So I have scheduled a few posts to go up over these seven days, one of them about the Rangers, one complete gibberish (jibberish), and a few blank canvases? I wish I could review tonight’s Game 6, since it will be the first of this series that I will see start to finish, and Stanley will be in the house. But I can’t. Can’t even do guest blogs, because that would require me to go to my company e-mail and edit and post.

Sorry.

But I can tend to a personal loss my family suffered this weekend, and I can do my lawn, and finally get that ice damage repaired, and maybe see Mr. T once or twice, and watch a whole boatload of the U.S. Open.

So hold the fort without me, behave yourselves within reason, hand out shineboxes if necessary, refresh-refresh-refresh, tell Sally I said “Good morning!” or “Good afternoon!” or “Good evening!” as the case may be, and let me know what I missed when I come back. OK?

See youse next Monday.

    I’m aware Lucic is Canadian (as is Oreskovich). That was kind of the point…

    Carp-Great blog you got here. I read it religiously but have never commented. Enjoy your “week off” knowing that your masters saved 25million justifying their obscene bonuses! LGR!!!!!

  3. Would Carp have been Carped if the Rangers were still in it? Don’t want to think about that, do we?

  4. If there is one thing I can count on this blog for it’s honest reporting. Dirk Nowitzki is, in fact, a europansy. Winning will not change the fact that he is thin and has floppy hair and is, ultimately, a europansy.

  5. I say…we all change our names to “Carp” for a day…or half a day…. it’ll be fun…confusing, but fun!

  6. Let’s Go Rangers! Everyone else sucks!

    I miss MZA…

    Only two weeks until draft day!!! Wooo!

    Only 3 weeks until July 1st!!! Yeah, buddy!!!

  7. Carp,
    Enjoy your time off and I’m sorry to hear about the loss in your family.
    We’ll miss ya around here!

  8. Good morning all! Carp, sorry to hear of your loss and I can’t believe there are more furloughs!!!!!!! Hartnell! We’ll miss you here. C3, I think you’d make a good designated shine-boxer!

  9. Dear Sir or Madam:

    On this blog today please attempt to speak with the utmost attention to proper and eloquent verbiage. Please refrain from colloquialism and tomfoolery. Formal language only. Black tie optional.

Is the soup too hot?” He says; “Will you taste the soup?”, “What’s wrong is the soup to cold?”, “Will you just taste the soup?”, “All right, I’ll taste the soup. Where’s the spoon?”, “Ah-ha!”

    Sorry about the personal family loss, Carp.

    As regards Miami losing, had they been named “Florida,” and with it had better regional support, they would have won. “Florida Heat” – coming to an NBA franchise near you. And how tragic that “The best basketball team that money can buy” didn’t quite make it, this year. Maybe if the Yankees lend the Heat the Texiera’s, the Granderson’s, the A-Rod’s, and the Sabbatical’s of the world, they could do better. I mean, whoever heard of investing 500 billion dollars in a basketball team and not at least being able to fix the final result? Something is wrong with this picture. What, the NBA is out of dishonest referees, already? What kind of story is a pedestrian team like Dallas winning it all? Jason (are you Kidding me) Kidd on the way out the career door, that is all we have to fall back on until training camp? These are hard times.

    I am down for “Manitoba Mush” (as in “Mush, you huskies), as the new, exciting regional name for the transplanted Atlanta franchise. Can’t overlook the regional support factor, it being so critical to a team’s success. God forbid the “Winnipeg Jets” name from resurfacing. I mean, the 15 people living in igloos up north of Winnipeg would NEVER attend a Winnipeg Jets game, we just know it.

    CALLING THE “CLEVELAND NATIVE AMERICANS”:

    Will you please just mail in tonight’s mesmerized, robotic, spaced-out, zombie-like, going through the motions, losers-complex loss to the New York Yankees, instead of showing up for the game at Yankee Stadium (physically – we know not mentally or spiritually) so that a few thousand die-hard Yankee fans can actually spend an evening at home with their family?

    Thank you.

  21. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Ahh – got it, just figured out the problem with the Cleveland American League baseball team – the name is all wrong! Let’s go with…

    “Ohio Native American.” Screw this politically incorrect Cleveland Indians garbage.

    One wonders had the Heat won if it would have earned the title of this blog…

    In a sport where momentum means nothing from game-to-game, it shouldn’t make a difference what the finals format is. That doesn’t change the fact that I prefer the 2-2-1-1-1 as well. The 2-3-2 is fine for the NBA though. The games are fixed. Who cares?

  24. wow this is Jason Kidd’s first NBA title! Hard to believe… seems like he’s been around forever!

    Second all-time in the NBA in assists, and third in three-point field goals made and in steals. He could pass the great Michael Jordan in the steals category if he comes back for the 2011-12 season.

    Sad tidings, Carp. Hopefully you will get some serenity over the course of the week and rejuvenate yourself for life back at the blog. All the best.

    you seemed to be slamming all the French Canadiens on the nucks yesterday (ala milbury cherry esque) and was wondering if the chunnel had really high tolls all of a sudden from the UK going into France?

  33. Today I got a spun salad at Hale & Hearty Latona. Broccoli, Tofu, Onions (red), Cucumbers, Corn and Carrots (shredded) topped with a honey mustard vinaigrette. One the side, you guessed it: PopChips – Cheddar Potato.

  34. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    The tofu kind of ruins it for me. The tofu kind of ruins it for me. But I’m giving you a point.

    Alls I know is that we’re having a Lebanese (my favorite cuisine) feast for my birthday this weekend! Woo-hoo! Food!

  35. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    lunch for me was two chicken samiches and a diet coke along with some sour cream and onion chips!

  36. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    yes, they had mayo on them!!

  37. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    Wicky, you get a point anyway. Free points day!

    Anyone who posts what they had for lunch gets a point regardless of the quality of their meal!

    FREE LATONA LUNCH POINTS!

  38. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    Oh.. wicky.. why did you have to say that?

    I DESPISE MAYO. But, you’re wicky. So you still get a point. If you were anyone else, your points would have been rescinded.

  39. Marinated chicken panini with tomato, arugula, mozzarella, roasted red peppers and pesto mayo/side salad with ranch dressing. Yum!

    No, no, Mama. You get your two points. I was saying Sally only had one point.

  46. LOL! ilb, you mean lost cause!!!! I thought you lost a patient!!!!!

    Thanks Latona. Heck, I say Sally 400 points, even if she doesn’t eat lunch!

  47. ilb! I thought you lost a patient too or were headed to jail. Either ORR.

    Latona. I second and third the referendum. I also second your motion to change the rules and do whatever you want regarding Sally.

    motion tabled…motion passed

  50. No slamming of French-Canadians here, wicky. The place of birth of Burrows and Lapierre is completely independent from their jackwagonnery.

  51. Mama – don’t get all angry because you didn’t know about the rules. They were clearly laid out on that day when we made up the contest. Since then they have been memorialized somewhere in the collective brain of this blog. If I wasn’t so lazy I would find the post for you. But I am lazy so you will have to find it yourself.

    I’ll give you all your points back if you play in my contest.. :)

  57. Hey, I use at least 2 percent of mine!

    Then again, I’m here discussing this gibberish with you all, so maybe not. Sigh, this just ain’t my day :)

  58. OK, Latona, I will, but only if I get an extra point :)

    wicky, I know!!! I can’t believe she’s left it up! I love cats, too, but I don’t want to be within 50 yards of a guy who finds that attractive! It only makes it better that her voice is like a 3-year-old’s!

    NYR, you get a lunch point for the hell of it.

    I would also like Thomas to win the Conn Smythe. In defeat, however.

  62. leetchhalloffame on

    Looks like Malhotra & Higgins will hoist the Cup tonight or in a couple of days. Glad for Manny but Higgins can kiss my carcillo.

  63. Latona: You might be interested to know that my ex-girlfriend hated mayonnaise. So did her brother. Luckily I inquired as to why….the reason was that when she and her brother were little their father told them that mayonnaise was made from native americans. Their father was an evil genius.

  64. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    Lol. That’s pretty funny though.

    My hatred for mayo reaches so far that I cannot eat anything with melted white American Cheese; it reminds me of mayo.

    And ride on, ilb! Go Nucks go!

  65. OK, let’s get this party started…..My heart can’t take a game 7. Go Nucks!

    just fyi, I used to, still kinda do hate mayo, but not the really good fresh kind, just the bottled glop.

  66. cccp

    what am i suppose to do. i believe the nucks cant win in bost but i am rooting for them

  67. Hey everyone!
    Go Nucks! My dad and friend are both fans of the Bruins, but I’m routing for Vancouver. I told them both that no way is Boston winning tonight. The Cup will go to the Nucks!!
    Loved that mama cat and kitten video Mama! It was so precious.

  68. that sure seems like an awfully bushleague move right before singing another country’s anthem. what a dope.

  69. just like the pens did the bruins will win game 7 on the road after home team dominated

  70. Were people really serious the other day talking about Luongo for Conn Smythe? LOL!

  71. what a disgrace blow up the nucks they have know mental fortitude. they suck how are they 117 pt team. no depth and the sedins who do crap

  72. Nucks benefitted from a weak division. I did a study earlier in the playoffs about how #1 seeds have tended to be overrated.

  73. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    Now, they’ll go back to Vancouver and Luongo will have a 50 save shutout in a 1-0 2OT win.

  74. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    CT,

    Care to share the findings of this study?

  75. It’ll be hilarious when the Bruins continue their trend of the past couple of years and end up missing the playoffs next year.

  76. Latona, in short #1 seeds tend to come from weaker divisions with less playoff teams. Cup winners come from stronger divisions with more playoff teams.

  77. Gift of GAB-orik on

    – good morning my neighbors!
    — ahh F you

    – YES! YES! F YOU TOO!

    Sorry for the loss Carp… Both of you for a week and for your family. Hope the meetings with Mr. T go well.

    P.S. To mock the Sedins like Lebum and Wade mocked Dirk, the Bruins will not score goals in front of reporters.

  78. when you play oilers flames wild and avs 6 times that adds about 25 pts. should be a 95 point team.

    either way i want to punch the daylights out of luongo. hes a loser

    go rangers sick of all these other teams

  79. I looked at the # of teams from the #1 seeds division that made the playoffs and likewise for Stanley Cup winners. I think Cup winners on average came from divisions that had 1 more team that made it. More thanna couple of #1 seeds came from divisions where they were the only playoff team like Vancouver this year and the Caps last year.

  80. CT – I think it would be that #1 seeds usually don’t win. They can’t be overrated. The system isn’t designed to choose who should won in a best of 7 series against BLANK. the system just selects teams based on seeding. Which is based on records. So they can’t be overrated.

  81. If you used a strength of schedule multiplier/deflator it would show that #1 seeds would tend to be overrated.

  82. Just passed it yesterday, Julie. It’s about halfway up Rte 17, between Monticello and Binghamton. Famous Roscoe Diner on the right.

    CT, I recall a certain team in ’94 finals sucking for multiple games (5 and 6).

  83. So, Roscoe is probably around 2 hours or so from Albany then? I’m invited to a wedding down there in August.

  84. Not doubting that the NW was pretty weak this year (though part of the reason the other teams were non-playoff teams was because they played the Canucks six times each). But it’s a bit redundant to suddenly claim the Canucks are way overrated when they are still currently one game away from winning it all, no?

  85. CT: Is a multiplier deflator the thing the doctors use to shock your heart when It stops?

  86. They could be overrated and still win. But being a 117 point team probably overstates their quality.

  87. lw3h

    of the 16 periods played so far they have been outplayed in 13 exclude the 3 3rd per in games 1 2 and game 5.

    the sharks in game 1 and game 5 outplayed them. if the sharks dont blow 5 consecutive pp in game 4 and tie series who knows.

    i am not saying the nucks are bad but the media has this team on pedastal like they couldnt lose this cup. i picked bruins in 6 so i may be game off but my point is the sedins are no shows and there goalie is whole career has been a headcase. when things go bad they spiral out of control always

  88. Hey youse, did they get outscored collectively 16-1 in 7 periods of play (in Boston).

  89. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    CT,

    What about dynasties, such as the Islanders and the Oilers of the 80’s? They were more often than not at the top of their division. Calgary won the cup as a division leader in that decade as well.

  90. Roscoe looks quite a ways from Albany. The directions say around 2 hours and 27 minutes. How are the roads down there? Are they your typical mountain windy roads?

  91. So CT you’re saying the ratings for the Cup seeding should be similar to the way bookies make odds? I like it this way because then you get more upsets.

    peverly=dive

    love how rome can throw a late but clean hit DURING PLAY and get 4 games, but the bruins can use constant after the whistle stick work and not even get a penalty…WHERE THE HELL IS TIKI?

    Wow! What a first period! Looks like Luongo has a mental block about playing in Boston.

  98. eric

    Are the Canucks what you might say is a “true” 117-point talent team? No.

    Do they suck, have no depth, no mental fortitude, a complete headcase in goal and have been completely outplayed for 95% of the last two series (which they won 4-1 and are not yet tied 3-3)? No, no, no, no and no.

    wicky

    Hope you’re not talking about the Edler hit with the Peverley=dive remark.

  99. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    as much as a dive as sedin when chara knocked him over in the first!

  100. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    as much of, not as much as…sorry

  101. wicky

    You are joking, right? Not a huge hit per se, but it was an icing race and Edler made solid contact while Peverley was reaching for the puck. Even Don Cherry could see that (even if only because it gave him the opportunity to call a Swede a chicken).

    If that was a dive, I’m Brendan Witt.

  102. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    so you think sedin “dove” when chara hit him?

  103. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    my point is sedin didn’t dive on the hit from chara, chara knocked him down but it was called a dive, so everything must be a dive!

    eric

    The 4th line ain’t much (So what? It doesn’t play.) Higgins, Torres and Lapierre (to a lesser extent) are NHL 3rd liners who have contributed as such.

    no reason to apologize, just though calling a dive on sedin on that particular play was as ridiculous as calling peverly for one. I do feel the rome hit was clean, just late. he got 4 games because of the praying mantis.

    how many games does boychuk get for riding a defenceless player into the boards? I mean if we are pansifying the game this badly.

    There’s a balancing act between staying awake and being able to get to sleep quickly once the game has ended. OT really messes things up…

  115. What I meant to say is that Todd White has similar chances of winning Conn Smythe As anyone on either team, excluding Thomas.

    that is good news

  122. June 15th is so late, the Islanders have already been mathematically eliminated from next year’s playoffs.

  123. And June 16th is the start of buy out period. Should be fun. No breaks this year, eh..

    this could be the first series with no handshakes at the end

  125. Julie, windy, hilly, dark roads, lots of dead animals. go in daylight if you can.

    isn’t anybody going to hand out a box to the asshat Bruins fan who was nowhere to be found around and since Game 5?

    thanks for the link and clearly this ref would have called that a dive (lol)

  127. If the Canucks win, this is arguably the 3rd team Messier led to the Cup, since he was captain of the team that stunk badly enough to allow them to draft the Sedins.

    were there NBA playoffs on?

  129. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    I thought the penalty on bergeron at the end of the 2nd was a pretty weak call as well.

  130. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    how about a mulching?

    got it and response on its way

  132. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 4 LLPs!!) on

    I thought the 94 rangers were a true number one seed

  133. And the 2002 Stanley Cup Final only went five games. Must’ve ended after the NBA Finals because of the Olympics extending the season (and the NBA Finals being a sweep).

  134. Europansy makes it 4-1. Do not plan a funeral for the Canucks. I’d still give them above average chance of winning game 7 on home ice..

  135. As I do not expect a miracle on ice tonight, I’ll calling it a day. Tired and cranky……blech!

  136. unfortunately i will be wathcing game 7 in a hotel room in DC because i have a work conference wed-fri.

    rather my big screen tv

    Isn’t June 14th also the day that Vancouver comes out with their new uniform?

  141. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    Olga,

    Vancouver has ANOTHER new uniform? This will be their third since the lockout..

  142. Latona (whatever you want me to be, it seems) on

    Olga,

    Vancouver has ANOTHER new uniform? This will be their fourth since the lockout..

  143. Whatever happens in this one, it’s been another damn good Final series, as have all of them since the lockout, other than the Ducks’ win (which was OK, since I had money on them…)

  144. 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins on

    Bruin on high Bruin dun cry Bruins got eye Bruin gun fry Bruin see bye

  145. Olga Folkyerself on

    Yeah, this time it’s going to have an older nude female posing on a SUV on the front of the jersey.

    They will change the name to the VanCougars.

  146. Wicky (Going with the 18" tires on this thing) on

    Do I even need to say anything about the 10:47 post? Didn’t think so!

  147. Nah, Wicky, it’s pretty obvious. It’s going to be a long week. Goodnight, ‘heads…

  148. Nuks in 7. Bruins will be shaved by dull ax. Rangers will get what they wanted at drafts and July, 1. Life is beautiful, once again!

  149. JimboWoodside on

    Yeah, what was Sedin auditioning for, the part of a speedbag in a gym!? What’s with taking all those punches without even trying to throw one back!?

  150. Hmm,.. where is Carpovski with an ax or shinebox, when is really needed…Fingers are itching.

  151. 4everanger June 13th, 2011 at 11:21 pm
    I’m afraid, not only two..

    Not so obviously, but it’s not me. What a pathetic, impotent cowards, taken our nicknames.

  152. JimboWoodside on

    I’m not at home, so I couldn’t comment at all during the action, except for between periods.

    Carp should have assigned a “deputy” who would be able to do what’s necessary while he’s on enforced leave…

  153. I thought Blogmama with sunday newspaper and all rights is our enforser. Isn’t she?

  154. From an impeccable source, the asshat Bruins fan has been banned.

    It never fails. Every one of these jackwagons eventually breaks the rules and gets his sorry aasen banned. One of those rules is “no imposters.” So long, jackwagon.

    Now go get your shine box.

    How can those Yanquis lose to the Ohio Native American, 1-0? The fix was in. See the magic of those regional names? They make Charles Atlas out of Woody Allen.

  156. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Oh God, my lady friend in Vancouver is going to fertilize the entire provence of B.C. if the “B.C. Canuck” blow it. She goes to all their home games. This is one home game coming up, she might wish she missed. Bruins got me worried. They look like they are on an emission.

  157. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Happy anniversary – New York Rangers, Stanley Cup Champions. MATTEAU, MATTEAU, MATTEAU – And the Rangers have one more hill to climb, baby. Still amazing. Never gets old with the passage of time.
