first? hack cough, sneeze…
Ahhhh. nothing like rising from the sick bed to check in and being first!
Hah. Me, too, mama. How’s the new gig?
that lineup stinks,thank goodness thats not our full team.
Wow…this mobile version of the blog is awesome!
I think the new gig is was what may have sickened me! :)
i think the old gig did it to me.
No Rupp? Are you kidding me? It’s the Flyers. What are the odds they don’t have five goons in the lineup??
anyone know what the philthy lineup is?
would have liked to have seen McIlrath in there.
Ha! I hear ya Carp. But I’ve got two flights in my future this week, followed by the loooong one next week to Sweden so I’m running out of time to heal up. Nothing like a bad head cold at 40,000 feet to really hartnell you up.
Laurel, seeing the nephews is a no-go!
ha,ORR,was thinking that same thing.
I ended up in a hospital on the road twice after flying with a bad head cold, and another time I passed out on the plane after taking meds and dehydrating. Be careful.
Where are Parlett, McIlrath, Stajcer, Avery, Eminger?
They should have played this game.
Awww, Tiki, I’m so sorry to hear that. Byfuglien.
Feel better, mama…
Avery’s in, bob. Maybe his final game as a Ranger on North American soil?
Avery is on the list, bob…
ilb, Staal is hoping to start in Sweden.
anyone know if avery is playing?
I am/will, thanks. Hopefully I’ll be better by Wednesday. I once got good advice from neighbors and it worked pretty well…”ear planes” ear plugs and a certain nasal spray. It really helped. And I always drink lots of water. Pray for me, and the poor person who may sit next to me :)
thanks ilb…any flying tips from you? :)
Carp, don’t say that!!!!!
Was thinking the same thing, Carp (sorry, mama). Could be between him and Weise. MZA, from what I saw is in.
“Where are Parlett, McIlrath, Stajcer, Avery, Eminger?”
weise and deveaux are gonna be busy.
I’m flying 3 million miles with an Avery jersey in my bags. I do not want to hear this, do you hear me????
Stajcer doesn’t need to play this game. It’s not like he’s battling for a spot on NYR. Let Hank and Beer-On split it.
I don’t know what the Flyers lineup will look like, but I hope Jagr plays. Hartnell might not. Apparently he had an elevated heart rate in his last game that wouldn’t go down.
OK, gotta run. In desperate need for some chow. Later all.
pats/bills is a good one!
No, mama…I can’t hear you…Still have the earplugs in.
well, this was the only way we were winning this game, if Vickie went out. Get a score of any kind here and hope for no collapse
im watching freshbeat band bills/pats and wild penguins,blogging,and drinking beer from a funnel.
Stupid play call. Got away with it.
Would be huge if the Bills were able to win today and end their 40,000 game losing streak to the Pats.
Victor Cruz had a breakout preseason last year (even though preseason really doesnt mean anything) and then got injured for the year.
Our win probability right now is at 87%.
haha BRAAAAAAA DEEEEEEEEE BRAAAAAAAAA DEEEEEEE!
Brady with the pick six to make 4 ints for the day,couldnt happen to a better person.
Wow! Stuff that one Andy Reid!! You have a druggies for kids and a criminal for a QB! And you have the bum signed for 6 years and 100 million!
LMAO at o choke cinko
Morg, impressive multitasking!
Mama, feel better! Also, bring me with you!!!
Also! The best part of Oktoberfest last night was running into a kid with a Cally t-shirt on. I walked right up and gave him a high five. New friends!
LOL @ the Bills! They just gave him all day long on 4th down. This is why the Bills will never win against the Pats. Just left Wes Welker unattended.
Why you’d let the greatest QB in NFL history, the child abandoning, attempted murderer Brady have all day is beyond me!
Tiki, I thought you hated Boston? This is hurting my head.
coach B is stacked!
I despise them Sally. I just have to laugh rather than get angry. The Bills just ran a perfect screen pass. Thats how its run. Take note, Gilbride.
listening to interview here with Valentenko
turns out he was his own worst enemy during this year’s camp.
feel bad for the guy.
hope it works out for him.
say it Marv!
The idiot Bills guy just went in for the touchdown. All he had to do was get down at the 1 like MJD did 2 years ago!!!! Come on!!!!!!
Michael Vick with a concussion, and now a broken hand.
Life is pretty good right aboot now! Next week, maybe a stray dog can bite off his shlong. Weeee!
He was down at the one. Nevermind, you have to take the TD, otherwise you risk leaving the Pats down 3 with a whole minute left to get in field goal range.
Tiki, I don’t understand, but okay. Go Bills!
I hope this is Christensen’s last game as a Ranger.
I like Weise, Avery and Mitchell, too bad for the damn waivers.
Most likely we keep Avery as 13th forward and take a chance losing other 2 to waivers.
Also maybe we keep Weise as a 14th forward to avoid losing him.
I am also really interested in seeing Thuresson he might be another one in the same situation.
Devils have no depth, I am sure they’ll grab a lot of good players off waivers.
Please just run the ball and hold onto it, Bills.
The Pats only have 1 timeout now.
Just kneel the ball twice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes! Yes! Yes! Kneel it 2 more times!!!!
Wow. That Pats guy tried to murder the Buffalo Bill. He stomped on the Bill’s head.
This is so nuts. I forgot how much sports stress me out.
They’re getting screwed. The simple task of kneeling the ball down is not allowed by the Patriots. They’re instilling fear by trying to murder people.
God, football players are such undisciplined punks.
The Patriots are drawing this out hoping for a mistake. By shoving people on the ground, instilling fear, and trying to murder people by stomping on heads.
I don’t know much about American Feetball, but everything I read before suggests that this Giants win is the biggest upset in professional sports history. Is that correct?
No, LW, that’s just people who don’t understand football.
No flag??? No flag??? No cheatjob???
YES!!!!!!!!!!!! The Bills have done it! Do you believe in miracles?!?!?!? YES!!!!
Did the Eagles at least cover the 56-point spread that my $100,000 is riding on?
norwood er lindel!
The Bills have done the impossible!!! Theyve beaten the unbeatable Patriots and the greatest QB in NFL history!!!!!!
ouchie,Sanchez got whacked!
Man, I love this city! People here are more excited with every regular season Bills win than NYC was when the Giants won the Super Bowl.
Are you people retarded? What there are no football blogs and boards that you have to spam a hockey blog with other sports?
People are STILL screaming!
Sorry Bob, didn’t realize we were keeping you from all that exciting hockey news happening today.
What is this football of which you speak? Where am I? My head is cloudy enough…
ILB, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!!! (hee hee)
Hartnelling having to work on a Sunday while sick. Freelancing is for carcillo.
Actually, the Giants Super Bowl XLII win was the biggest upset in American Sports history!!!! YES!!!!! BILLS!!! SALLY!!!! LAWRENCE TAYLOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bob, we don’t talk Hockey here. You can’t take a hint?? It’s all aboot gonzagas, crappy sports, and life.
Sally, I’m jealous of that. Most NY sports fans have no real passion. I can’t stand it. Fake!!
from last thread, It is way too soft of a line up!!
Tiki, I was all about the Giants winning that game. Just saying, when I stuck my head out the window after that win I could hear like 3 people yelling, which is kind of normal for NYC. But here, EVERY SINGLE Bills game I can hear people screaming in every other house…
Orr, maybe you should move to Buffalo…
GO BILLS Sally!!!!!! Someone has to stop those murderers on the Patriots!!!
dumb throw Sanchez
trade Sanchez to Edmonton for Yakuza or whoever…
LMAO @ Dirty Sanchez.
That’s a great idea, Sally!
Two strikes, CR.
Am I in the right place? Or is it a jet lag?
Sanchez ,Staul and our first for Edmontons #1 pick ,Yapuski.
Aww, Carp defending his paww wittle Patriots!
Morg, better yet, let’s trade Sanchez to Japan for a member of the Yakuza. We need protection for Hank!
“Tom Brady And Gisele Sued Over Wedding Shooting ”
Charges? Convictions? Libel?
a hockey game is gonna break out of this Jet/Raida game
“Patriots’ lineman Albert Haynesworth pleaded guilty to simple assault Monday afternoon in connection with the alleged groping of a waitress at the W Hotel in February.”
cut it out right now buddy.
Tik, it’s not going to end well….
ORR,did you see the video of the guy with the katana sword going up against the police!
we need THAT dude,ill throw in Haglin,kid is surely a bust anway!
Boyes suspended two games. So many suspensions in the pre-season.
This is the most alive Ive felt since July!!!!!!!!!! BILLS!!!! SALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL! I never seen that. Sounds like a warrior. We need one of those.
CR needed a timeout with that Jagr condom BS the other day,geez,wtf dude.
the timeout is coming, Morg. I saw that one.
This dude can take Averys spot on the first line.
please tell me jagr isn’t in the flyer line up tomorrow night
No need for a timeout. A ban would be more appropriate, in my opinion.
Haha! Is that Blade??
tick, tick, tick … dare, dare, dare.
This is for everybody. I had a whole carcillo-load of problems with a couple of jackwagons over the summer, and I am sick and tired of being harrassed. and sick and tired of people who don’t tone it down when I give them second, third, fourth chances.
and now I am not going to put up with this crap anymore from anybody.
hawks /wings should be a good game,cream of the western crop.
this preseason seems pretty intense(as all the suspensions show),I like BlackHawks coming out of the west this season.
I read you lima charlie and sorry for the hassles!
>>anyone know if avery is playing?
I heard Gillies and Jansens had a couple good scraps last night,anyone at the arena for that one?lol.
they dont even bother televising that one,sad really.
lima charlie=loud and clear
Adriana Lima, Wick??
oh, my fave!!
Nice cheap shot by Gillies in round 1
yes,been waiting all freakin day!yes JBytes is avery in?
whilst your at it,can you round up philthys lineup as well old chap?
I presume Gillies and Janssen were fighting in an ECHL pre-season game, since that’s where both of them belong.
you could of taken care of you know who quite awhile back. you look the other way for him quite a bit.
LOL! Check out this fight between Hordichuckles and Fedork. Ripped jersey wont stop Hordichuk
not any more, bull dog.
ECHL? Is that Ecuadorian Central Hockey League?
Have you banned the troll, Carp??
love the ECHL! go Equators!best fish tacos in the E
nice scrap with Hordi and Feds!
didnt have the devs piles ones up when i last checked sweet!
on the subject,Rupp looked real strong against Boulton,tied him up well.
Cro is killing us!
ever tell you about the time i scored 7 goals?
Not to take sides, Tiki is on pretty good behavior, but most of you continue poking him with sticks. If you can’t take his humor with a grain of salt, then just ignore his posts.
Stop the personal stuff, all of youse. That includes you, blogfather.
Didn’t you say the same thing a week or two ago, Fozzy? Hmm…..
Man, I am out of shape. My town’s Soccer Day was today, and they have a coaches game. I’m gonna have harddddd time waking up in the morning.
soon “adorer of Laurel” will chime in on Tikis behalf..lol..
With respect, Fozzy, it doesn’t take any stick-poking at all most of the time. CTB and I, for example, are hardly the most antagonistic people on here, but we’ve both had unprovoked crapola thrown our way. For the record, I’m grown up enough to really not care at all, but I can understand people getting turned off by it and the sheer volume of it makes skipping posts difficult too.
I said I was sorry
You’re only forgiven when you finally send me that signed Exelby jersey, wicky.
NO WAY!! It came as a set of signed exelby and witt bookends with a willie mitchell signed reading lamp!!
I have jagr toilet paper I’ll send you though (unused of course)!
Foz, with all due respect, this goes deeper than the last few days … and it involves some crap that I’ve repeatedly asked him to not bring up.
sweet goal by BlackHawks!
Dane Byers scores for the Jackets. Ugh! Another one we let go for nothing, just like Grachev, and Werek!
Not true!! We got Chad Kolarik for him! That’s something!
LMAO! This Cromartie guy sucks. Is he the one with the twelve kids?
oof jets are in trouble
Kolarik? Sounds like a disease! Bust!
Werek was the next coming of Corey Perry, according to some Ranger fans…Bwaha!
From Wiki…”Cromartie has fathered nine children with eight women living in six states.”
well now that i see the Jets jersey,logo,etc,i like it,its clean.
randy jones sucks
whos randy jones?
Randy Jones has played on Philly, LA, and Tampa, I think.
Nine kids! Wow!
So one of the women thought Cromartie was a keeper at least.
Randy Jones mushed Patrice Bergeron’s brain.
Doubt, LW…Probably twins.
oh ,THAT Randy Jones!
stevezipay NYR prospect Pavel Valentenko, hurt in Friday game, doesn’t want to go to KHL
in the battle for 7th d man, i think Bell was better than Vtank and Erixson
oops sorry Jan
yoga pants rule!
thanx girls @ the gym!
like the micro tennis skirt dealie too!
Jets coach blew it! Footman should have made them kick the field goal. Bwaha!
Laurel! Vitamin C, chicken soup, and zinc supplements!! You’ve gotta get yourself better!
woo hoo RAIDERS!!!! YEAH BABY!!!
sorry you guys, the raiders rarely win anymore so I have to take them when I can get them!!
Oh-oh…....I may have just walked in on a knife fight…....WTB is going on here!?
I’m not surprised that Valentenko isn’t as keen on playing in the KHL – that whole operation over there sounds “Bush League”(TM I forget who!) to me – Cherepanov dying without an ambulance in the arena, and old planes that fly like boulders…..stay in North America, kid!
some people are just ridiculous at times
well, LW is mad at me because I promised him a signed exelby jersey, but as I noted above, I can’t break up the set. He clearly isn’t interested in jagr TP (unused…also noted above)!
that is what you are referring to right???
and a bag lady!!!
Jagr TP? Got any of that Jagr peanut butter I’ve heard so much aboot?
Hi Wicky! Yes, I noticed that with LW – but it was the other rumble I was referring to.
I was at my bank’s ATM earlier this evening, and there was a young guy there that was wearing a Penguins hoodie – I wanted to slug him, but I refrained…
No, Wicky, not exactly! But I’m sorry about that disagreement, too…...Jagr TP? Does it have his picture on each sheet?
Poutine? What about smoked meat? And Montreal bagels?
Jimbotron! I like that!
I’m doing well, Latona – and how are you? Aside from being worn out from your exploits earlier today, I mean?
Just saw the movie “Drive” big hype…nothing more. was expecting A LOT more! For a movie called “Drive” there was a lot of non-driving.
I’m doing okay, thanks. Where’s eddie been? Along with Mickey, ORR, and CCCP, and occasionally some others, we (when I’m posting rather than just perusing) usually make up the night crew here, a crew I enjoy heartily.
I didn’t even bother checking that one out, CC. I knew I wasn’t going to like it.
Lots of work and travel coming up for me til Oct. 9. After this Tuesday may be a while til I can read/post regularly, but Krisy and I promise to check in for start of season! LGR!!!
Head friends, if you have my e-mail, feel free to stay in touch. If not….later alll!
Latona, glad you’re doing OK…..I don’t know what happened to Eddie3! He stole MickeyM from Wicky and I, then he disappeared! Mickey has been around here, but since she threw us over, she doesn’t “talk” to us much anymore! ;)
i missed it!!!! who got banned?
Sigh. Troll, nice try. Even if I did, so hartnelling what. Have a nice day. Niters all.
Oy!!! ‘Night, mama – feel better!
mama love Jimbo :) sent you mail….
I’ll talk to you guys!
safe trip and feel better!!
Oleo, I think Tiki got banned. Maybe it’s just temporary though.
Thanks bag man :) Ha! A wicky!.....
We need Shanahan to police this blog….....
Tiki was not banned.
Maybe Tiki should be banned for this nonsense:
Tiki September 25th, 2011 at 11:55 am
The Giants are in for a major beatdown today!!! Hip Hip!
Tiki September 25th, 2011 at 3:46 pm
Our win probability right now is at 87%.
Haha, unless of course he was talking about the Yankees game, so even if they aren’t connected, I say ban him. Lol, kidding… but not really. XD
And just a minute before (@ 3:45) he said “Victor Cruz had a breakout preseason last year (even though preseason really doesnt mean anything) and then got injured for the year.”
I think he was still talking about the Giants (Not the Yankees) with the “Our win…”
LOL, I know I’m asking for it, but man… c’mon, just stop! You’re too funny!
Damn!! check out this chick! extremely talented and beautiful!
...and Jewish ;))))
Tiki deserves perma-ban…how many readers does his childish behaviour shy away?
that was pretty cool, but i like this one even better…love the violin
I love so many of you all. But so many of you all also make me glad I’m going to be away for a while. Tsk, shame and newspapers on noses all around.
That’s my wicky for tonight…..TA.
clearly our laurel quotient will be significantly lower for a while!!
nice! but i like my video better! i love “Tool”...
Tool and Dream Theater are two of the best rock bands in the world! Period!
Nice Vids guys.
I have to agree with Carp that I’d like to see McIlrath in there. I’m also of the opinion that Torts knows what he’s doing and is going to start making some decisions soon. Every man’s gotta take care of business. I know it’s corny, but I like the lineup. Let’s go Rangers!!!!!
She can play my tom-toms anytime, C3! ;)
Damn! Shouldn’t gotten my hopes up. Shame!
Meh, back to skipping his posts.
Cute chick, CC. I like a chick that can play an instrument. A bit of a turn on, if you ask me!
I agree about mcilrath. I got a totally different vibe from the short vid link on wasabi—-> than I got from the quotes on whackamole—-> about mcilrath from torts today!
Seems a lot calmer in here now. Some of the BS needs a filter – thnx Carp
On one hand playing the youngsters vs. the Filth sees what they bring to the table.
On the other, McIlbeast, Rupp, and others who can and will throw need to be in the mix.
So quiet in here…
Hey gang, been beautiful down here in STL over the weekend so been taking advantage of it and being outside a lot.
Kinda a weak lineup for the Flyers, if you ask me.
Staal not going with the team really worries me.
I thought the Giants were going to get pounded today, taking into account our epic collapse at home against the Eagles last season, our injury situation, and the game being on the road. I convinced myself before the game started that we had already lost so that I wouldnt be angry later at the inevitable loss. Unlike the jerk that suggested this was the greatest upset in American football history, it wasn’t even the biggest upset of the day (Bills defeating Patriots). The Giants offense played well, the play calling was more of the same, uninspired and predictable. The defense played stellar. The only way to win this game was to pressure Vick and take Vick out of it by punishing him physically. Anyone that knows football knows that Vick is not a very good passing QB. They were the popular Super Bowl pick before the season, but the Eagles will never win anything with Vick as their QB. This game is a building block for the Giants, and only means something if they go out and beat the Cardinals next week. The Giants need to do the same thing every week. Punish the QB, make them feel pain. That’s how the 2000 Ravens won, by punishing and oft times, injuring the other quarterback. That’s how the 2007 Giants won in the playoffs, by punishing the other QB. IIRC, the Giants sacked Brady 5 times in Super Bowl XLII, and hit him many more times. All of that 2007 season, Brady never felt that kind of pain. He got to waltz around the pocket with no fear of being hit.
Similarly, when wicky talks about crease clearing defensemen and physical players, he’s right. The Rangers have a great chance to come out of the East this year with their talent and youth. What we need is a healthy Staal, and for Staal to quit trying to poke check the puck and take the body. Staal needs to be healthy and intimidate opponents and punish them physically. Also, enough of the blocking shots in front of our own net from Girardi. He too needs to be physical and make opponents coming to our net pay the price.
The one thing Ive learned over the years from the Boston teams is that you need to intimidate other teams. That’s how they’ve dominated sports since 2002. The Red Sox are at the top of the league every year in Hit Batters. Their pitchers strike fear in batters, making them adjust their tactics at the plate. They make batters think twice about crowding the plate. The Patriots late hit on nearly every play, causing just a little extra pain and making the other team know that if they attempt to gain extra yardage, they are gonna pay for it. The Celtics dont let you get easy baskets. They throw you to the ground, they chop your arms, they make you pay the price for taking the ball to the basket, thus deterring opponents from doing so in the future. The Bruins lay you out after every goal scored upon them, they drill you into stanchions with no regard for the opponents’ health. They make opponents pay nearly every time you get close to their net, or sniff their goalie. Bottom line, you win with crass, not with class.
