Rangers at Senators tonight; ticket contest begins


Just a reminder: The ticket contest starts now. Scroll down a few threads to see the rules and regulations (and threats). Predictions can be made in this thread only, and only until the “It’s Go Time!” post goes up tonight. Don’t even think about entering more than once.

I’m not going to disqualify any of the Rhodes scholars who tried to enter yesterday, but if they want their predictions to count in the contest, they’d better do them again in this thread, because I am not going back to the other thread to review them.

And I’d advise having somebody read you the rules this time before you enter.

    LMAO@ Rhodes scholars…

    Wow, didn’t realize how many people read the blog and don’t post! C’mon guys, post more often please.

  10. The ticket contests really bring out the silent readers among us! So many people that read but don’t post. Nice to see.

    Ok I could really use these tikets I need to get away for a couple of days.

    Rangers 4 Senators 2
    GWG: Mcdonagh
    Rangers SOG 31
    Senators SOG 28

  12. gak, I used the wrong email in my prediction post – it’s no longer valid. Talk about being a Rhodes scholar!

  13. If I win you can auction what I wear to the game for charity. Well, not all of it. Just something.

  14. We should do a poll – if you predicted a Rangers loss, how do you feel about a) Sean Avery and b) John Tortorella and c) Barndoor Dubinsky

    score 0 for absolutely hate the guy, wish he was playing for the Isles
    score 10 for our saviour

  15. Sorry Carp, I had a tooth pulled and was hopped up on Vicodin last night and didn’t read the post well enough :/

    Here’s my entry:

    Rangers 3- Senators 1, GWG Brad Richards, Rangers shots 27, Sens shots 22

  16. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Smoking cigarettes and watching captain kangaroo, now don’t tell me, I’ve got nothing to lose.

  17. Ottawa: 2
    Rangers: 1
    GWG: Spezza
    Shots: Ott-24 Rangers-19

    I absolutely love the Rangers, but I’m just playing the odds as someone already said. Just playing a feeling that the Rangers are going to loose.

  18. “playing the odds”


    The odds are not that the Rangers will lose! Odds are they will win because they are a much better team than the Senators. The Senators are 29th in goals again.

    You guys are playing a “hunch.”

    How about those Dallas Stars without Brad Richards (who they were without most of last season too).

  19. Ill take Rangers 5 Sens 2, Stepan with the game winner, Rangers 24 shots, Sens with 29 shots

  20. Manny – i’d be a 6,8,7

    I’m thinking positive today, no let-down after a good run, Dubinsky breaks his duck. Step & Gaby continue to lead the scoring, Avery gets 7 minutes or more (i’m less optimistic about the last one).

  21. I agree, UK! Dubinsky will score the GWG and grab and empty-netter tonight to tie it up. Speaking of Empty Netters….

    How unreal was Gaborik’s the other night? That was the most skilled Empty Net goal I have seen in some time.

    I could absolutely see Sean Avery getting about 7-8 minutes of ice time. This team needs to spread the Ice Time out a bit more evenly. Sean could get his Ice Time up to 20+ minutes if he starts playing as a Defender.

  22. Rangers 5, Senators 2. GWG: Sean J.Crew Avery. Rangers shots: 33. Senators shots: 24.

    Has anyone told Dubinsky that the season started a month ago?

  23. Maybe Torts is saving Avery for the next Devils game, where he’ll play him every minute of the PP right in front of Fatso (with a picture of a cheeseburger on his butt!).

    Gaby has his mojo back this year for sure – i get the impression they downplayed his injury last year as his shot has way more snap and accuracy.

  24. I like that idea – rest Sean and then play him 60 Minutes, regardless of the situation, against the Devils. They better not try and start Hedberg!

  25. Who are all these people?

    Rangers 5 Sens 2 GWG: Stepan Shots: 32 Rangers, 21 Sens.

    “Stepan has really stepped out…no pun intended there”

  26. Rangers 4, Senators 2. GWG: Block-ness Monster (Girardi), empty net. Rangers shots: 29. Senators shots: 24.

  27. Rangers 3, Senators 1; Dubi gets the game winner; 28 shots for the Rangers, 23 shots for the Senators.

    Huge fan of the blog!

  28. I’m here on a business trip to Chicago, but hoping my luck will pay off!

    Rangers 4 – Senators 3 GWG – McDonagh NYR Shots – 24 Ottawa Shots – 38

  29. Rangers 4 Senators 1 gwg- gaborik shots rangers 24 ottawa 28

    Btw i keep reading that Pruster is banged up. Maybe that shoulder is really beat up? Hope it wont end his season

  30. yeah I know my post is messed up…you can’t have the EN goal be the game winner. But I can’t edit it! It SHOULD read…

    Rangers 4, Senators 2. GWG: Block-ness Monster (Girardi). Rangers shots: 29. Senators shots: 24.

  31. Can we get a new post in which to discuss things? There are like 5,000,000 posts in here from people I haven’t heard of. (which is a GOOD thing)

  32. Rangers 3 Senators 1 : GWG Stepan : NYR Shots 29 : OTT Shots 27

    and to ALEXEI27 i’m not trying to be rude just pointing out that if you have the rangers winning 4-2 than the GWG cannot be empty net unless you have the 3rd goal as an empty at 2-1 net followed by a sens goal at 3-1 followed by another rangers goal for 4-2. just saying

  33. oh and the new names like mine are all the people who read the blog religiously but don’t post the little community here is bigger than just the posters

  34. Boston Bonehead on

    I’m new commenting. Been reading this gem since the Sam days. Keeps me amused at work.

  35. and its because of that that i never post, make a comment and realize that while i was typing the poster had already realized his error, oh and Steps is get insane love in this thread right now

  36. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Another good contest would be to guess the time is crosby’s SECOND poop of the day. His first poop would likely be early morning….I am not up that early.

  37. Carp, you should be very proud of your accomplishments here with RR. Look at all the silent readers we have!



    Rangers 4 Sens 2 GWG by Callahan Shots: Rangers 27 Sens 33

    morning ILB and all (and I mean ALL!!!)

    I think the new rules to the contest should only include people that have had dialogue with “regular” posters at least once on here. Love all the new poster here today, but like the captain said…please post more!!!

  40. Rangers 4, Senators 1. GWG: Stepan. Rangers shots: 28. Senators shots: 27.

    And just in case, Dubinsky gets off the schneid with an empty netter.


    – One of many silent readers.

  41. been reading this blog for at least a couple years now but, my first post.
    first off – i love the blog and keep up the good work.
    now my prediction:

    Rangers 5 – Senators 2
    GWG: Avery
    Rangers shots: 32
    Senators Shots: 29

  42. Man this contest killed all hockey discussion for the day. Guess none of us have 400 bucks laying around to actually buy tickets

  43. It is by far the most comprehensive, content-rich and profound thread in recent memory (since last season series of freebees), not to mention it is a very nice and pleasant reading……and inexpensive too. I can predict, that it will easily beat any game day by quantity, as well as by quality of brevity, diversity and gamut of single posts.

  44. No “new post” today, Manny…..I don’t think Carp wants to go through 3 posts to determine the winner. Man up! :-)

    He, all new posters, if you posted at least once a day we would totally kill the Yankees blog which is still considered the mos popular on Lohud. C’mon, show them what real fans are!

  45. Mr. Boudreau not happy… RT @TarikElBashir: #Caps practice has been going for about 20 minutes. Suicides, followed by 11 separate one-on-one battles. Players hunched over already.

  46. Wicky, LMAO! I had a little suspicion because “your” wording became softer. How many threads have I been talking to mrs instead of you? Never mind, I don’t want to know.

  47. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    If I win I would like to give my tickets to CT jr…(if that doesn’t work then ILB).


  48. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    I posted right after the game, then she kind of took over it has been a ZOO at work lately, makes this place look like a yoga class. But it is me now!!

  49. Wicky – Carp mentioned a few weeks ago that impersonating another poster is immediate grounds for banishment. Too bad for you and the Mrs.

  50. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    whackamole—>says rupp out 4 to 6, hope he gets back healthy and love to see him on a line with the bahama bomba

  51. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    good point, its been fun you guys……………

  52. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    wait, technically wouldn’t she be banned?? Must admit, she did a pretty good job filling in

  53. Manny- no worries, they share the same views. How else do you get two young kids and the third one on the way? Except her English is better :-)

  54. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    I thought she was being way too nice though

  55. Um..Kevin Weeks sucks: KevinWeekes “@dangeroushockey: @KevinWeekes @hockeynight oops. I don’t drink but did have the throw up flu. Maybe I dreamt it!!! Lol. Sorry” Ok Hahahaha

    Oh. Phew- glad they get a pass there ilb. That sounds like a lot of kids. I can’t believe they find time to post.

  56. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    ouch, my English is just as more better as hers are

  57. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    we don’t have a lot of hobbies after hockey ends in the summer, too hot to go outside

  58. Ok – so Stralman cleared medical tests. ilb, CT, wick….someone update me as to the current status of our Cap. Is there any way to move stuff around and get the ^hobbit wizard^ up? I heard Maloney talking about it in the post-game.

  59. The presence of Bahama Bomba, the way he’s been playing at the moment, makes it easy for Rupp to take his time to recover. I think once he’s back to his normal we would see a much better player than he’s shown so far.

  60. eddie eddie eddie on

    she takes her time and never feels she has to hurry…in her eyes you see nothing, no sign of nothing behind the tears…

  61. eddie eddie eddie on

    she cries for no one…a love that should have lasted years….you stay home, she goes out

  62. Manny- we have 21 players on the roster at the moment. WW, Rupp and Staal are on IR. The team has close to $1M cap space to use. The best way to do it is to call up someone with 900K contract to bring our cap closer to max, and then put Staal on LTIR. That way MZA can easily be recalled. His cap hit is $1.75M

  63. Stranger Nation on

    MZA up to ride pine? Why bother?

    Should be next call up if we get another injury

    If prust is banged up and needs a game or two off, MZA up and Aves up to 3rd line. See if he can handle more than 6 mins/game

    MZA, EC and BBD would be an odd line – but hey what do you expect for nothing?

    A rubber biscuit! (in the basket?)

  64. Carp

    Do you realize that your little Lo Hud blog has expanded internationally to a remarkable degree? Why we hear from Scandinavia, England Switzerland?
    Why your coverage is beginning to rival that of the State Department. ( When have we last heard from our boneheads in Ulan Bator?) Why, why, …we might even have some CANADIAN boneheads without being aware of it.)

  65. Manny,

    How unctuous of you to direct your question specifically to ilb, CT, and wick. Don’t worry, “pal.” I see through your façade. You ain’t fooling no one.

    And yes, I went all the way into Character Map to get the c with the cedilla.

  66. Latona

    That actually was going to be my question. I am impressed by your ability to go to incredible lengths for insult. Nice job “pal.”

    I apologize for not including you in my brief, and incomplete, list of boneheads who are able to explain cap space. In my defense, your attendance around here has been shoddy at best and I thought that perhaps you have only arrived today to predict a Ranger Loss and then disappear.

  67. Citing my attendance? Seriously Manny? I know where and how often I’m welcome, unlike SOMEONE, it seems. You stubborn, stupid, silly man!

    Note, no insult was directed towards the posters mentioned by Manny in his post. Except maybe wicky, depending on what he does today.

  68. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    I am NOT the one to ask about the cap situation, mrs yes, but me …NO.

    agree about the bahama bomba and rupp, I just hope we keep them both in the line up when rupp returns (doubt if we do but, hope so)

  71. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    since you deducted some of my well earned lunch points awhile back, feel free to be absent as much as you like…lunch point nazi!!!

  72. Latona – this has become a mockery. You sit there, in your armchair, judging me, a common man. For you to come here and attack me with such slanderous conundrums is outright preposterous. I think that perhaps you should go back from whence you came. Into the ocean. That deep blue abyss. Where creatures like yourself can find refuge. Your words will find no home within my heart. I am strengthened and callous against your type. Those who judge and let their captaincy, albeit of nothing more than lunch points, go to their head. This is the end!

  73. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    wonder if the bahama bomba and konopka go tonight?? percent chance 85%

    what the hell is waseka?? Is it the same thing as whackamole—>??

  76. Rangers 3, Senators 4 (shootout). GWG: Michalek. Rangers shots: 26. Senators shots: 28.

    If I win, I want somebody to place a cardboard cutout of a man reading his BlackBerry in one seat, the other left empty.

  77. Wicky- he hasn’t done anything to NOT keep him in the lineup. He is much better skater than i imagined, and, while he may not be the best fighter out there, he is very strong physically. I’m not sure Rupp would’ve done as well against Parros as he did.

    Manny, Latona- LOL! While the regulars may understand that you’re just horsing around, people who don’t read every day may actually think you are serious about insulting each other.

  78. Noah-aal-olski-upp, 28 on

    Rangers 4, Senators 1. GWG: Fedotenko. Rangers shots: 27. Senators shots: 23.

    Good luck to all! That Panthers game would be a nice 29th (or 26th?) birthday gift!

  79. Latona – you leave the emoticon faces to JIMBO. That’s his neck of the woods!

    Wick – that’s true. The newbies will be horrified and will never come back because of our 17th century banter! I should just challenge Latona to a duel and be done with it.

  80. Amendment: The cardboard cutout should only be in place between 15:00 of the first period and 7:00 of the third. The second seat can be filled with a beer bottle standing on top of a tape recording on a “We want Avery” loop.

  81. I don’t know that we’re just horsing around anymore, ilb. Manny’s made me feel inferior and inadequate. And I don’t care what Eleanor Roosevelt has to say about that, because I tried my darndest to prevent that!

    I, Latona, in the face of abject hatred, hereby resign as the arbiter of lunch points.

  82. Don’t you dare bring Eleanor into this. She is a saint. Don’t go get your panties in a bunch. Resigning from your made up position is hardly a play of strength. You are now denying everyone of lunch points without declaring a winner. Don’t make everyone suffer in the wake of our feud.

  83. Latona – I hold all the cards here. As of right now, Jonathan Franzen is on MY roster and not yours….don’t push me.

  84. Latona, your contract has a 4 week notice clause. While we are looking for an appropriate replacement, you are to continue your lunch point responsibilities. Unless you want one of our resident lawyers sue your MZA. I’m sure Manny would be delighted to oblige :-)

  85. Even as I try to accommodate everyone’s wishes, in my no longer residing over the distribution of lunch points, you contort that in your twisted, trickful(©) mind to accuse me of purposely denying lunch points from everyone. How is it, “Manny,” that you were sure I wouldn’t appoint a new arbiter to bring joy and happiness to the livestock in my stead?

    Shameless, you are. Shameless. Why don’t you go on a website and talk about the Rangers or something, instead of tarring and feathering me?

  87. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    To paraphrase here, your lunch point days are about to come to an end!!

    still no interview call yet

  88. That is correct, ilb. Vis a vis the clause regarding Latona’s current status as lunch tsar and concurring with his previous stated contract held by LoHud Latona will be contractually obligated to Perform. Legal Jargon. More legal jargon. prima facie res judicata res ipsa loquitur constitution bill of rights court your honor. You’re out of order. Object! I Object! Default summary judgment 12(B)6 deposition.

    Take That!

  89. “Lunch tsar?” Were it not you, Manny, who proposed that I be the sole donor of lunch points, even as I vehemently stated I desired no such position? I was ELECTED!

    No living tsar am I! You look upon an alderman!

  90. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    clearly latona feels we want him on the lunch points we need him on the lunch points, but in all honesty you are going to lunch point jail you son of a beech!!

  91. Elected? Hardly. Come on. You came up with this elaborate and fantastical lunch contest to occupy yourself and serve your own selfish and grandiose opinion of yourself during the off-season. You all but demanded to be put in charge. Any mention of me suggesting you for the lunch “alderperson” was merely me ceding to your dominating style of brainstorming and conversation.

  92. I can’t believe I have to go here, everyone. But nonetheless…

    I see it now. Fifth grade. Me, with my peanut butter and jelly sammich, minding my own bidness in the cafeteria, when you, MANNY, strut over to my table and THIEVE my lunch! You laugh and laugh as I tell your friends to unhand me. Even Mrs. Petrone, the affable lunch aide, my confidant in the school, didn’t act. And I was broken. So broken.

    Now you ALL KNOW why I’m such a stickler with the lunch points. No good, very bad childhood memories of a young boy on an unholy mission to destroy the only thing I knew. Lunch.

  93. Thanks, NYR! I always knew you’d have my back.

    Since I have to remain Head of LoHud Lunch for 4 weeks due to some construed clause in my contract, you are now in third place with 400 points!

  94. Oh really Latona? You have to bring THAT up. How about in the 11th grade when you made out with my prom date on the hood of my father’s classic corvette? You forget about that. So what, one stupid lunch thing in elementary school which clearly left you OBSESSED with lunch and now you are lunch Tsar and it just won’t end. Ever.

    Forget out plans for Friday night. I don’t care if you’re stuck at the train station FOREVER. I am not picking you up.

  95. Don’t you get involved there NYR. I will kick you *right* off the bobsled team! I was going to move you up so you didn’t have to be the anchor but now I have to rethink your loyalty.

  96. Yeah, I forgot Stranger. His skating hasn’t been the same this year and the knee thing makes sense.

  97. Lol, eddie should be very proud of gibberish today…Got to go give a lecture. Keep it civilized, will ya…

  98. Really Latona? You barely even dated her. So what? One night she drinks a bit too much champagne and you pull some scumbag move. Get over it. She’s my wife and she deleted your number from her phone. I WATCHED HER DO IT.

    As for you, NYR – if you so much as make a PEEP for Latona (obviously you’re one of his slaves) I will kidnap the ^hobbit wizard^ and transport him to CHINA.

  99. After all the blood, sweat, and tears I bring to the bobsled, with absolutely no appreciation by my teammates…I might have to go solo and take up luge…

  100. Watched her? I’m sure you forced her hand when you said something like “You better delete his number or I’m going to consume more unbaptized children!”

    NYR is a TRUE friend! Don’t listen to him, NYR! He’s a meaniepants jerkface!

  101. Thank you generous donor!

    Rangers 3, Senators 1. GWG: Dubinsky. Rangers shots: 22. Senators shots: 35.

  102. NYR – you will never make it on the luge. You can’t point your feet to save your life! Good luck.

  103. Rangers 2, Senators 1, GWG- Gaborik, Rangers shots 24, Senators 21

    Hive fives for all after the game. Let’s make it 5 in a row, and take 2 pts tonight.

  104. NYR – have you heard the Seinfeld standup about the Luge? It’s pretty terrific. He basically says that it’s the only sport in the world where you could kidnap someone and force them to do it and it would be no different. It’s just like the bobsled except there’s no sled. Just Bob. He also says, “oh look he pointed his toes, this guy is a tremendous athlete.”


  105. “It’s just like the bobsled except there’s no sled. Just Bob.”

    Haha! Yes! Brilliant!

  106. Everyone loves FREE stuff! So post again, “reader only”. It’s FREE!

    Yes, that means YOU!

  107. Ok you guys are right, many of us should post more. I’ve been following Carp’s articles from way back in the Reporter Dispatch days, but have probably only posted on here a dozen or so times. I’ll do better.

  108. You care, Manny. It’s tearing you apart, slowly gnawing at your innards, this ruthless display of malevolence and resentment which, in fact, is entirely conjured and non-existent. Your fingers resist with each key you push, your heart yearns for our reunification as pals. But I can’t allow myself to fall victim to this shallow, callous display for the sole purpose of turning the lunch crowd against me. Make a choice, Manny. Life’s about choices; what are you going to to?

  109. I’m a little bummed I didn’t make my prediction in time for -TODAY’S- @Yesterday’s@ contest.

  110. Sorry, Latona. I got distracted for a minute there. I will fire back and renew our hatred in a few

  111. Ria( the silent bonehead) on

    EXCUSE ME i’m the original silent bonehead let’s not confuse me with all the other silent people LMAO. Youse guys are making tears roll down my cheeks from laughing so hard LET’S GO RANGERS

  112. Rangers 3, Sens 1 GWG: McDonough Shots: NYR 30, OTT 33

    After reading the game notes, I’m wondering why Biron isn’t tied for fifth in the NHL in shut-outs?

  113. @AdamRotter@ Quote: *John Tortorella Doesn’t Care About Zenon Konopka *


    Yup – he’s an egomaniac. It’s official!

  114. Rangers 3, Senators 1. GWG: Callahan. Rangers shots: 28. Senators shots: 31

    Good luck all… Maybe I can win something and not have to give them up.. I recently won (and had to cancel) Conan O’Brien in NY tickets.

    Captain Cally to the rescue!

  115. Manny

    Funny you should mention the late Steinfeld show…I was just about to suggest that this is becoming somewhat a combination of the Cheers bunch and Seinfeld, but with a now and then Hockey commentary.

    Which character on this program seems to be patterned loosely on Kramer, and which one on Norm?…..and who could be the Soup Nazi?

  116. It will be interesting to see how the Rangers pay with prosperity staring them in the face.
    They can potentially leap frog 3 conference opponents and tie the Leaves for 2nd in the conference for points.
    In many respects I see this as a bigger test than a back against the wall type of situation.
    The motivation comes from a different place but winning teams have it.
    Are they content with where they are now, or are they hungry?


  117. Fran – I will tell you that Latona is clearly the Soup Nazi. Other than that I think people have to name themselves or those they know best.

  118. I know it’s probably been posted before but I think it’s worth a repost:

    “They asked me(Brian Boyle) what my nickname was after I came over from L.A., and they called me Big Rig there, but the guys here thought I was making it up. So you know that episode in Seinfeld where George just makes up his own name and wants to go by T-Bone? Well, they started calling me T-Bone for that very reason.”

  119. The answer is this, @CCCP@: Trashy is *not* a bad thing. You pity the guy that marries the trashy girl but until then, you do not shy away from trashy. You enjoy trashy. Exploit it even.

  120. Trashy CCCP? Shes attractive as hell, and the great one is her father. Whoever ends up marrying that girl will be the luckiest son in-law on the planet.

  121. Oh albo. @CCCP@ and I are able to look into the soul of women and understand their psyche. I agree with his initial analysis that she looks “trashy” or “adventurous” you might say. And yes…Hooray for that.

  122. RangerAlbo

    let me guess… long time reader first time poster? i am honored that your first post is dedicated to me! ;)

    and i said she was trashy, not ugly… big difference.

  123. ANightAtTheSpleen on

    Always read, never post :( going to start contributing, but heres my stab at the contest:

    Rangers 4 – 2 Senators. Anisimov with the GWG, NYR 28 shots vs OTT 31 shots.

    Good luck to all!!

  124. long time reader yes CCCP, not first time poster though. posted under a different name for a while a couple years back but i moved and for some reason stopped posting. you may remember the playoff beard contest we had a couple years ago, if im not mistaken it was the first one this blog had. i entered that contest and i think it was tony from az that commented and said i looked like rosival. i still laugh about that comment but for some reason i cant remember the name i used to post under for the life of me. maybe its cause it was 3 years ago but oh well.

  125. Welcome, RangerAlbo. You’ll soon learn to not be thanking Manny; if you scroll up, you’ll see how mean he is!

  126. Darn it, Latona. Don’t poison people against me. Let them make up their own minds about who the Nazi Lunch Tsar and who is the nice person who represents the masses.

  127. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    damnit…our “per” quoted has been filled for the day already……rrrrrrr

    I still can not believe you took my lunch points away, I WAS so on your side at one point!!!!

  128. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on


  129. Wicky: Latona is in a mood today and he is just a nasty, nasty person right now. Hopefully, his hangover or whatever will wear off and he will come back to earth. Maybe pull his head of his own Asham. Who knows….For now you an join me on the side of all things Good and Just.

  130. haha i read the soup nazi comment latona. i guess i disagree with it because you and i share a love for peanut m&m’s no one else could understand.

  131. wicky,

    When did I rescind lunch points of yours? Please let me know; I don’t recall the incident myself, and it’s not in my records. I liked it when we were friends!


    Go scratch.


    Glad to have you on the righteous path. Don’t let Manny’s propaganda seep into your system; it’s poisonous.

  132. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    oh, so now we find out you have been peanut M&M slutting yourself around…you are a cold and dark person!!

    we should all thank manny for shedding light on this horrible (the “h” is silent) situation!

  133. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    I am absolutely devastated right now

    you are the worst kind of fish EVER!!!

  134. wicky,

    As much as I’d wish to have you back on my side, I, unlike one “Manny,” am morally fibrous, and will not sink to doling out lunch points just so I have friends.

    You chose Manny. Is that your final answer?

  135. Manny: Sons of Rangers Report, I am the one they call Manny.

    Young soldier: Manny is 7 feet tall.

    Manny: Yes, I’ve heard. Kills men by the hundreds, and if he were here he’d consume Latona with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his Asham. I AM Manny. And I see a whole army of my @comrades@ here in defiance of Latona’s tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What would you do without freedom? Will you fight?

    Veteran soldier: Fight? Against Latona? No, we will run; and we will live.

    Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you’ll live — at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemy Latona that he may take our lives and lunch points but Latona will never take our freedom!!!

    Wallace and Soldiers: Alba gu bra! (Rangers Report forever!)

  136. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    clearly you do not “dole them out” just to have friends, but you sure take them away!!!

    Your peanut M&M promiscuity is just more than I can handle, so close to Xmas as well (one less gift to buy I suppose)

  137. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    Carp would be so proud right now!!

  138. Latona – don’t mistreat wicky. Not at all. He has done nothing wrong except come here and share his heart with you. What have you done? Stripped him of all his lunch points. Calories that he ingested. FOR YOU. And you have the audacity to take them away. Well you can’t take away the pain you have put in his heart and soul. You sleep with THAT

  139. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    go ahead look in the mirror


  140. why is there so much hate between you 2 (manny & latona)
    the players and owners of the nba probably get along better then you guys.

  141. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    steer clear of latona, lest you be collateral damage like me

  142. Albo: You will learn in life that where there is hate there was once love. The two emotions are polar opposites, yin and yang if you will. But they both require a vast amount of effort to maintain. Much like a smile and a frown. They share a similarly symbiotic relationship. Many of the same muscles are used to frown that are also used to smile. You see the point?

  143. Wicky©news flash, anyone on the ice is in a"vulnerable position" on

    remember when we voted here (in the spirit of all that is right and fair) to name whackamole—> whackamole—>, and latona stirred up insurrection and then disappeared into the dark recesses of his own world to sulk and plot

  144. manny that was freakin beautiful. i understand now.
    (did you take that from somewhere by the way? cause if you didnt, thats top-shelf quote material right there. just sayin)

  145. Yes wicky, I do. I know the pain of what he did. Hiding in his cave like a bear in winter. A tiny breathing hole through which he lashes hatred and pain at all those who cross his path.

    That is all me, Albo. Yet another reason for people to join me in despising and excommunicating Latona.

  146. eddie eddie eddie on

    i bet chris christie would be an offensive juggernaut re: lunch points….that and dont get in his way at the buffet line

  147. if possible id like to stay neutral, kinda like switzerland, in this on-going battle between you 2. But i will most defintely stick around to see what other gems you produce, thats for damn sure.

  148. Thank wicky, my child. Thank you.

    Latona: I have dared to say no such thing. I do know that there was a movement afoot to rename Waseka and I stood for you and warned all others of your wrath if they were to be so bold as to rename The Twitter Widget. Why, you ask? I did that because I fear you. You lie in wait seeking your prey as you always have. Attempting to eat the children of your enemies and bastardize all the teachings that are good and just.

    Now you leave Wicky alone. You leave him be.

  149. Albo,

    I don’t engender unrealistic images of myself as to appease other blog-goers. Now, that’s not to say I wish to be disliked; in fact, I believe most of the RR community is either rather fond or has no special affection for me. I will allow you to develop your own opinions about myself; I don’t go campaigning for internet friends.

  150. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    This morning I stepped outside to the grey clouds in the sky all around, yet when I looked to the East a bright shining light broke the evil grip of the greyness, at first I thought the sun..? Alas it was something even greater and brighter than the sun shining through, it was MANNY!!

  151. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    LURID DRIVEL…HOW DARE YOU!?! criticism of such sweet song will gain you NOTHING oh taker of lunch points!!

  152. wicky,

    Enough already. We get that your brain cells have been hijacked by The Dark One (He Whose Name Shall Not Be Invoked). Did you know that Manny, from 1939-1945, could be found thrashing about in a secluded valley in the Rhineland? He let loose cystic spores that somehow developed into snappily-dressed fascists.

  153. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    remember how latona baited poor BANJ into continued posting on a long dead thread, now he is ridiculed by name nearly every thread as someone else does the same thing.

  154. Alright, Latona. Let’s not make fun of my family. So they were/are Germans. It doesn’t make them _bad_ people or anything. The Rhineland has some good wine by the way. It’s not all hard-living over there. I would be very wary of where I step. Very wary!

  155. Your ignorance continues to amaze me. You insult potential allies. Are you mocking BANJ for being unable to find his way out of a prior thread? Sure seems like it to me.

    I, for the record, am not responsible for that.

  156. It seems that Latona has been responsible for baiting many a poster into foolish actions which he later ridicules. I am surprised more of us have not been hospitalized because of his vicious and thoughtless atrocities.

  157. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    you are responsible for everything evil, including michael moore

  158. That’s your biggest mistake, Manny. My atrocities are very, very thoughtful. Rarely committed, but when perpetrated, done so with fervent ferocity and utter vindication.

  159. I wish Tiki was here to calmly explain all your missteps. He probably isn’t around here because of the vicious way you treated him. Poor Fozzy Bear. Poor, poor Fozzy Bear.

  160. I am not Pol Pot Latona. He died in 1998 while under house arrest. I have never, ever been to Cambodia. I am so sick and tired of you pretending I am him!

  161. I am an exception you say? To your cowardice? You taunt me from your pulpit but you refuse to come out and face me like a man. Ride out with me! For Death and Glory!

  162. Don’t get all “cute.” You know that I enjoy Nelly and other similar commercial rap stars who wear band-aids on their face as a fashion statement. You don’t have to tease and taunt. I am a man but I still bleed blood just as you. If cut Eegah, do he not bleed?

  163. If you commit abominations, do you not take responsibility for them?

    Apparently, the answer is yes.

  164. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    Latona just stalking to a point where he can use BANJ’s name in vain yet again!!

  165. I have committed no abominations. I am no snowman. I am a man. Flesh and blood. A man with needs and desires. Should I not desire that all in this world also be mine?

  166. Are you somehow implying that BANJ’s name is not to be taken in vain?

    Sounds like blaspheme to me. And a blasphemer would most certainly consort with the anti-Christ, namely Manny.

  167. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    what has become of so many at the hands and words of latona??

  168. “Cain’t we all just get along?”

    From the Emoticon Guy (according to my pal Manny)! ;-D

  169. BANJ is a good guy. But there are no Commandments of BANJ, as far as I am aware. Enlighten me if that is the case.

  170. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    no consorting here, I am yet a simple that fell victim to he who is evil, the one who operated under the guise of the “friendly lunch point giver” to lure those in and then snatch lunch points from those very souls to which he frivolously doled them out

  171. Jimbo,

    I’m only defending myself! We’re late night buds, I don’t want you turning on me like wicky did. Don’t fall victim to Manny’s spell!

  172. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    and now poor jimbo, jilted by mickey and now blinded by the evil of latona

  173. “Friendly lunch point giver” need not be in quotations. It’s the troof, the whole troof, and nothing but the troof!

  174. You got that right, Jimbo. I was trying to preserve your image around here.

    Blasphemer! Do you utter the name of our Lord, Latona? Do you have no shame? Can you not respect other people’s wishes and desires? You have to prance around in your frock demanding that everyone amend themselves to your form of being and your desires. Shame on you.

  175. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    now he has jombo knowingly BANJing as if there is nothing wrong

  176. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    you have a frock?? Shameless

  179. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    like moths to the flame that is latona

  180. Is it not enough blood for you, Latona? You have filled your veins with the blood of unsuspecting newcomers for hours now. Surely you must be overflowing with this young blood. Yet you continue to trap and drain. Trap and drain.

  181. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    I can hear his laughter as each newb posts what they think is the next post on the current thread

  182. While I do not own a frock, the hypocrisy you both exude is rather comical.

    Manny- Can you not respect other people’s wishes and desires?
    Wicky- you have a frock?? Shameless

    Lern2beonateam, then I come back and win.

  183. That evil, maniacal laugh that pierces the quiet of this forest. That calls the birds to stop singing. That forces the rabbits and other fowl rodential creatures back into their holes. That forces the Coyote to sharpen its teeth on the brittle bones of the young.

  184. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    you say shameful look what you have done to poor poor fozzy bear, kaspar, you tempted mao so much with lunch point bliss that he had to go into hiding and post under another name, LW went across the pond to get away from your lunch point schenanigans, and poor poor newbs dayymax3 and evan

  185. Look what you have done to Jagr-Meister. This poor man with the most clever and mature name of all time and here you are disgracing him and his entire house. Why don’t you just spit on his family crest!

  186. I lack the energy to keep up with you two, mostly because I don’t consume entire galaxies for sustenance.

  187. I eat balanced, delicious meals. You two eat everything. By doing so, you A) invariably eat something un-delicious, and B) deny other humans their right to lunch points through both consuming the humans and consuming their lunches. Deservedly so, your loss of lunch points is.

  188. Hah! Now you’ve done it. Come back and deducted lunch points from people you previously stripped all the points from. What have you left to take from wicky? You already too everything yet you want MORE MORE MORE. Don’t give me that Yoda-Speak. I don’t need it. I deny nothing from anybody. I give and share. I eat more well balanced meals than Susan Powder. Leave it be, Latona lest you wake the dragon.

  189. I hereby ban Manny and Wicky from all lunch-point related activities. As Lunch Point Arbiter, I request a vote to determine if I shall remain in office past the four week termination point per ilb.

  190. He demands a vote pursuant to Section 36 Sub Paragraph “X” Bullet point #16. The Gaul! The Audacity. This monster must be stopped and botle up!

  191. If you would take a minute to read above ilb….

    *Manny* November 9th, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    I will not leave this post until either Latona, or myself, is dead.

  192. ilb,

    I apologize in advance and in hindsight with regards to anything I did or may do to quash the great, subversive threat to blog stability and harmony that is Manny.

  193. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    clearly latona will not stop unless we all unite against the bogus and cowardly lunch contest thereby taking said power he so blatantly abuses

  194. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    latona has even sucked our beloved captain in

  195. Manny has left you, wicky. It’s his way of saying he doesn’t need you; he thinks himself too powerful to hold alliances. You’re just his pawn, wicky. You’re just his pawn. And he’s currently sacrificed you to move in for checkmate. Maybe if we unite, I can avenge what he has done to you.

  196. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

  200. That’s it. Wicky – your loyalty is similar to the loyalty of a toad or newt. Latona, you disgust me. That’s right ilb – I will see you in H-E-Double Hockey Sticks

  201. Avenge away you pee brained nincompoops. Bring it. I have been ruling over this land and other lands for centuries. I am the undead. I do not need mere trinkets to lunch points to feel valuable. I am descended from Kings and Knights and those who rule and take nothing from the peasant types like yourself!

    Manny still represents the people!

  202. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    I was your wingman manny and you left me just flying circles

  203. There is no hole and there is no digging. I am a man of the people. ONe who is not to be trifled with over such petty larcenies of the soul!

  204. wicky – we were once a team. I do not need to reminisce over this sadness. You have moved on a i bid you all the best until you are cut down by my broadsword. The gods of old shall slaughter you in your dreams. You shall sleep while awake in a hazy abyss of spirits. Your sounds and noises heard by no one but yourself. Trapped in the snowy wakefulness that is sleep.

    Manny November 9th, 2011 at 6:47 pm
    Latona you backstabbing horticulturist. You disgust me with your willy nilly loyalties and your modern day absurdities. You sit at your home with your feet in a Dr. Scholls foot bath soaking away. You never have known the real world. What it’s like to work, nay, slave in the dark for a few pennies or morsels of day old bread. Keep filling your hands with lotions, your hair with rare oils and your belly with carbohydrates. I will continue to represent the people!

  206. He’s deceptive and trickful, wicky. Don’t let his attempt to be a harbinger of doom sway your thoughts. You’re on the noble, righteous path now, a champion of lunch. Don’t succumb to the forces of evil!

  207. I am retiring to my supper. I shall return to this thread during the Rangers game and deal you wicked blows of death.

  208. His supper of kittens and puppies, wicky. Stay obstinate and steadfast against the wave of sin.

  209. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    OH man this is priceless, we are either going to bring the blog to its knees with this or spawn a whole new spin off

  210. So you have returned from your feast on the domestic-type animals. I’m rather surprised you’ve shown face after your latest trouncing. Are you proud of yourself for putting your big girl pants on?

  211. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    ouch, big girl pants to go with a frock

  212. I am fine with starting a spin-off society. We will only let in very vehement folks who hate with all their might.

    Frockin’ A Latona. Are you wearing something absurd right now? Like an apron?

  213. Latona – why don’t you go upstairs to your bedroom, clean out your panties, put on a nice thick skirt and get back down here so we can flush this out!

  214. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    wowsers that was sweet, Im all about team manny!!

  215. Why doesn’t wicky just be in the middle constantly switching sides and taking shots at whoever is there to be shot at?

  216. Why, you ask? I’ll tell you why.

    You used wicky, in all his awesomeness. In all his glory. You used and abused him, Manny. Where once he trod in the shadow of evil, as a servant of darkness, he is now a champion of lunch. Aren’t you a champion of lunch, wicky? AREN’T YOU?

  217. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    no way to treat your wingman manny

  218. Wicky was not used. He is a big boy and is able to make choices for himself. You don’t need to come down here in all your anger and demonstrativeness and ruin it. Let him be. Worry about yourself LATONA

  219. This is the story of a champion
    Rounders in the mob and they pop the guns
    Stand up stand up! Here he comes
    Tell me what it takes to be number one?
    Tell me what it takes to be number one?

  220. He’s being deceptive and trickful again, wicky. Don’t allow his pervasive, strictly unwholesome ideations to sink in.

  221. Mama! Please tell me we are unified against the anti-lunch sentiment Manny brings to the great, bountiful table that is RR.

  222. Don’t try to turn her against me, Latona. I, unlike you, have taken the time to meet some people face-to-face and hold their warm hand in mine and gaze upon their face. Therefore, there are connections you cannot even dream of coming close to!

  223. Manny doesn’t even hold the sanctity of marriage in high regard! Holding the hands of non-wife women? Deplorable. Simply deplorable.

    The lunch community of RR and myself are connected on a different level, one your deranged being can never possibly attain.

  224. I meant shaking hands with people, Latona. Don’t get all caught up in the verbiage. I am a model of loyalty and fidelity.

  225. You weren’t very loyal to wicky, now were you? Your mistreatment led him to stand with me against yourself.

  226. For a short while. He quickly realized the error of his ways. You lure in unsuspecting victims with promises of special attention and happy funtime, but once they discover your devious machinations, your attempts to eviscerate RR’s very stomach, they can no longer willfully remain under your command. Sometimes, all it takes is some true words to shake their languor.

  227. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    I feel a little “off” being two places at once, yet it feels so right

  228. Latona, you make me out to be a sort of Hansel and Gretel type. Luring people into my stove and burning them and then putting them into pies.

  229. Except you don’t have the means to pie them, as I save them from the fires of your oven with a freshly baked meal from the fires of mine. You’re extremely unsuccessful, a failure, if I may.

    This insanity definitely beats the other insanity happening on this website right now. I’ll agree with you on that.

    Also, “you won’t lie.” Ha!

  230. You could call your alliance the “short-lived” alliance for wicky will leave you when he sees how insane you are. You ways will get you Nowhere, Latona. NOWHERE

  231. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    oh, I thought that was the 3 of us….loggers unite

  232. Latona – how about we call today a draw. We will not make up until there is an opportunity to combine our powers.

  233. And from now on you all can find me in the post before the “Go Time” post during games. It’s way less confusing and hectic and there is surprisingly less animosity and pessimism in this fight than in those threads.

  234. A draw? Seriously?

    It’s not over until it’s over. I will disintegrate into nothingness before I yield to your wishes. You can take a leave of absence, sure, but I will then have the upper hand.

  235. Fine, Latona. My olive branch is rescinded and my anger is blossoming. I will leave now to have my second supper. I will return angry and ready to do battle with you. You pip squeak underling of a man.

  236. Loggers in, wick. If you need a break from the slugfest, go ahead. We’re a team, we support each other. I can cover for you.

  237. See that Latona? That’s like you. You are the fighter who won’t take off the visor. That attempts to gain an advantage in an un-manly manner. I am the man that somehow gets around that advantage despite the odds and destroys you.

  238. You form wonky analogies to make up for your lack of actual skills on the battlefield. Pathetic.

  239. Your entire life is wonky, Latona. Maybe you need surgery for it. You’re a hernia on the groin of this blog.

  240. It’s worse than a blog hernia. If this blog had a hernia then Latona would be a bone spur on that hernia.

  241. wicky,

    I can tolerate ambivalence from you; my aim is not to force you onto the side of lunch. I will be disappointed, however, if you join the disgrace to world Jewry in his quest to create mass hunger and hysteria in RR.

  242. I do not seek to create hunger or mass hysteria. I am merely seeking the truth – where people here may find that there is more to the world than simple, ridiculous lunch points. As valuable as mickey mouse dollars and easily less desirable. You are a religion of lies based upon a foundation of filth at the altar of shame. Sham on you.

  243. Many Disney Dollars are rather valuable, Manny. Maybe you should re-educate yourself in that area. Considering that all you do is sit around in your Chamber of Verisimilitude and beget slander and lies, this would be a difficult task.

  244. I can’t really comment what I want to but it’s a Dave Chappelle quote: I will edit –

    “You can’t buy no [adventurous women] and [Home-Grown Dubi] with Disney Dollars. I’m stickin’ with Green backs!”

  245. Now you have to use quotes to support your argument? Is this English class or something?

    I think not. This is a deathmatch. Grow up.

  246. I will nickname you what this man on this show on Bravo that my fiance/wife is watching is named: YOU ARE *SUCKLORD*

  247. Now you’re resorting to entertainment… horrible.

    Ren & Stimpy horrified me as a child, btw. That show was messed up. Thanks for giving me the heebie-jeebies.

  248. You didn’t give me the heebie-jeebies, now that I think of it. Ren & Stimpy did. So you are actually incapable of giving me the heebie-jeebies too; surprising that these newfound henchmen of yours haven’t turned against you.

  249. My friends Heebie and Jeebie will never, ever abandon me. You will live in fear, sleep in fear and eventually die in fear.

  250. I will die at your feet if slain valorously. But we both know that isn’t going to happen. Because you suck.

  251. Here’s a reason you suck, Latona: You predicted that the Senators would win. How is _that_ for loyalty!?

  252. Latona – I don’t want to turn this into a pedantic argument over semantics. You put your desire for personal gain in the form of tickets, i.e. MONEY, over your love of a hockey team. What’s next? You will give up on logging and abandon wicky?

  253. I abandon none and nothing and accept all willing to responsibly and honorably further my cause.

  254. You make VinceA sad. You make David Klein look like a good guy. You make Tiki look emotionless.

  255. You would know this how?

    Oh, that’s right, they were recently found using the ouija board in the catacombs below your apartment complex, if you want to refer to it as that. More like the hall of suffering.

  256. You know nothing of suffering. If you want to know suffering I dare you to come within 50 yards of me. I will teach you suffering.

  257. Aren’t you trying to claim that you’re a doer of good deeds, fighting against a hegemonizing, ruthless lunch tyrant? Aren’t you for the people?

    I don’t think the people like suffering, Manny. I don’t think they like suffering.

  258. It is not the suffering of the people. It is the suffering of the imperialistic colonizers like you. It is they who suffer for their misdeeds. Their suffering bring light unto the people. Purification and cleansing. You would know a lot about those words you Lunch Nazi.

  259. How exactly have I colonized RR? They are lead by one mysterious blogfather, the “Carp,” as he’s called. They are clearly industrialized. I gain no resources or territory from my being a participant in blog festivities. All I try to do is organize the people in a manner by which they can share experiences about food and keep the conversation light-hearted. Competition brings out the best in people, and as a result they may choose to improve their dietary choices, bringing them even greater joy.

  260. You are a communist of food. You clearly desire that everyone eat a bland, similar tasting food that is handed to them from the back of a truck. You love food lines. You love to see the people gathered at your feet, begging for lunch points. Then you arbitrarily take them away like a tyrant. Strip people of their value and self-worth.

  261. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    lest we forget it was the captain that originally brought up the abolishing of latona as “lunch point distributor”

  262. I promote and encourage nutritional and cuisinal variety. I am anything but a communist of food, or a communist at all, for that matter. With all your talk of “the people,” I’d reckon you’re the red element, not I.

  263. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    latona was klein and vinceA??

    for shame latona for shame

  264. wicky – the captain means nothing in here. Logging is all that matters. There is only one captain and that captain is death. What do we say to death? “Not Today.” And that is how we keep on logging and avoid our executioner.

  265. Wicky©The difference between courage and stupidity is one mistake on

    Cool runnin’s mon. Vibin’ (that is where all that comes from)

    Latona – you live a myth thinking that people will just love everything you do and respect you. Sometimes you go to far. This is one of them. Loggers are a tight knit community and once ousted, you will remain ousted.

    over 700 posts of jibberish/gibberish

  309. Looks like it’s just me and my logging for now, it seems. We’ll begin our struggles anew tomorrow. For now, I’ll take the opportunity to insult both of you without any immediate repercussions.

  310. Manny,

    As I reminisce on blogs of yore, I recall a true, unwavering blogmate, one who, when the idea was first mentioned, supported the lunch contest with every ounce of what I deemed “good” in his body. You effortlessly described the masterpieces you dined upon, the extravagant liquids you quaffed alongside them, and enjoyed reading and commentating on the lunches of fellow RR citizens. The entire blog was enthralled at the summertime activity which would bring a glimmer of hope and a laugh or two throughout the hockey doldrums. The season approached, and although the contest mostly faded, a few good entries were noted here and there, and subsequently applied to the lunch chart, which, by the way, is an official MS word document. With each random entry, the blog was reinvigorated with feelings of hunger and desires for tasty treats and scrumptious snacks. The first month of the season passed without incident, but perhaps it was Halloween that spawned the unfathomable horror that now occupies your soul slot. Just like that, you sought to overthrow me from my “make-believe” position; why, exactly, if my position is of no importance, is it such a priority of yours to remove me from it? Why, exactly, do you resort to insults when questioned about the validity and accuracy of statements you have made, especially if you make yourself out to be some omniscient demi-god? Why do you attempt to negatively influence the nice people that inhabit RR, and turn them against me, nothing more than a giver of lunch points?

    My rescinding and reassignment of lunch points is apparently some grave offense that the RR populace must verily not accept. Yet, I clearly expound upon my reasons for doing so to each unfortunate diner, and they are never without due cause. I’ll even go as far as to explain why an individual didn’t receive lunch points, especially for a normally point worthy meal. Ask Blogmama. While she was unhappy at that particular moment, she learned to accept what the stipulations and limitations of lunch at RR are, and the next time she consumed a heroic afternoon meal, she was rewarded.

    I am somehow made out to be a power hungry tyrant, the “tsar” of lunch, as you so phrase it. When, exactly, have I committed RR pogroms, rounding up those who eat inferior or less than acceptable lunches and slaughtering them mercilessly? Note, no lunch is truly inferior or less than acceptable; it’s your lunch, prepare it and eat it how you want it. But, as I was AWARDED the position of lunch point distributor, a position which was supported, mind you, almost entirely by yourself, it is my responsibility to fairly allocate lunch points to truly exceptional lunches. Have I asked Carp to replace ilb as captain? Negative. Have I asked to replace Blogmama as mama? Negative. Have I asked to replace Sally as the end all, be all of RR happenings? Negative. Have I asked to replace ORR as babe finder? Negative. It seems to me that I’ve remained rather content in my position as lunch warden.

    I can’t put a finger on what has perturbed you so. But I know this. You’re a charlatan haberdasher, an apathetic streetwalker, a master manipulator. You have thieved my beloved wicky from me, a wicky I never thought would leave me, as deceptive and trickful you may be. You attempted to coerce NYR to your side, although the greater good of lunch prevented him from doing so. You’ve compared me to and even claimed I was disguising myself as the scum of RR, namely David Klein and VinceA, allegations which are untrue and can be easily verified by Carp. When has a greater injustice and a more direct personal assault been carried out here at RR? Never before, and undoubtedly never after.

    I do not know what the future holds for me in my position as resident lunch aide. But I know this: I have lost every ounce, every morsel of respect I ever had for you, my greatest ally turned enemy. You will never hold lunch points under my watchful eye. And you will most importantly never, ever defeat me.

    I’ve been told I’m a wellspring of many wonders. My only wish is to continue offering my humble services to the great community that is RR. Let me do that, Manny. Let me do that.

  311. Wow, Latona. You must have been working on that final post for quite some time. Trying in your heart of hearts to find something wrong with me. Something wrong with Wicky. Something wrong with RR. You seek to exculpate yourself from any liability or blame for the debacle which has taken place. You see yourself as a transcendent being wandering the planet and giving aid to those who need it. It is in that way that you are similar to one of Mohatma Ghandi’s assistants who desired to travel the world helping endangered motorists reach their destinations. He said those people are the real heroes. Well, Latona, you are not one of those people. You are a cyst on the ovary of society. All that you birth is drama, trouble and filth.

  312. It didn’t take me very long to type that post; seeing that I have a properly functioning brain and a soul, it was not very difficult to develop diction and syntax and form a coherent entry. What did I find wrong with RR? You are the only cancer present here. I wander only the tables of RR, congratulating my fellow lunch-goers on superb sandwiches, soups, salads, and more. You continuously have to cite well-known persons to support your argument; grow the byfuglein up and fight for yourself, brah.

  313. I apologize for being so well studied and well-versed in the world. I find comfort in the fact that better people than myself have walked the planet and committed their thoughts to paper. Since I am so humble, I am able to use their superior knowledge and wordsmithing to better elaborate my points. I apologize if the references are over your head. Try to keep up.

  314. Of course you’re well studied and well-versed; when one’s insatiable bloodlust cannot be immediately fulfilled, they had better educate themselves on the different persons on the planet, lest they lose a potential victim. Furthering the possibility of depraved self-indulgence through death and destruction is the only thing you take comfort in. Don’t play games with me.

  315. Don’t you dare tell me who I am and what I take comfort in. I take comfort in the arms of my woman. Nowhere else. I study merely so that I can be a contributing member to this planet. Whereas you spend your hours stealing lunch points, denying people happiness and creating a general malaise of anger and destruction around RR. Maybe you should take you buffoonery over to Blueshirt Banter or some other Rangers website where you can act in your standard juvenile manner. I hear there is a great blog called “Defending the Core” where you can take your musings.

  316. How would you know of this “Defending the Core” and this “Blueshirt Banter?” Perhaps because you are a regular visitor and contributor to these heathen blogs? My trade is the distribution of lunch points, and I only ply my trade here at RR, unlike the the deceptive and trickful Manny. You spare none and corrupt all.

    And by the way, I dare. I double dog dare.

  317. I have never posted on another blog. How dare you, how double dog dare you, accuse me of such tactics. I have no interest in those heathen, inferior blogs where people bring their nothingness to the table and rant about who wears the best pants! That is right up your alley there, Jersey boy. Take your shenanigans elsewhere and talk about stirrup pants and sequin gowns and whatever else inspires you to act in such treacherous and wicked ways.

    Where is Wicky and NYR?

  318. Latona – Dare i say that you are the most wicked, most evil person I have ever e-encountered. You sit here in your throne of darkness ruining people’s lives and stealing their lunch points. You corrupt the once debonaire folks of this fine establishment. You spit fire and blood upon all those who sit humbly at your feet. Is it not enough to control lunch points and name twitter widgets? You must also control rain and fire and all those elements of the world that bring death and destruction upon people of lesser means! I deplore your actions. I spit at you. I spit upon you. Eventually I will spit upon your grave after I have slain you with powers of good. Protect the people at all costs. Protect them from this treacherous monster!

    Morning loggers
    I would have been here sooner but I was waiting for latona who told me to meet him over at defending the core!!

  320. Now you can’t even generate your own adjectives. So sad, Manny. So sad. Seems that the wordsmith’s wordsmithery has bested the pea-brained Manny’s own futile efforts to combat the verbiage.

    I don’t discuss fashion, especially pieces of clothing that I don’t equip ever. I believe you have been the one mentioning outlandish garments; is it you who dons the frock? Something a Connecticut child would do.

    No idea. NYR, come back!

  321. Resorting to more lies, the dastardly duo is. Ignore them, great residents of RR. Take pride in the lunch community; repel the unsound advances being made by this terrible twosome.

  322. I think it has come to a point where I actually pity you. Alone, without friends, without intelligence and without a moral compass you are alone and scared. You lash out like a hungry snake but your bites miss their mark. You are starved.

  323. You make untrue claims which have no basis in fact or actuality. And here you go with your absurd analogies again. I am a champion of lunch; I am not starved! It is you who wishes to starve RR!

  324. latona
    what have you done to NYR? Is he waiting at “vinceA’s” house where you sent him? When you answered the door did you ask him “does this rag smell like chloroform”?

    I noticed grabby showed up for a moment and then you did and grabby is….well…gulp…gone!!!!

  325. Everything I say is true. I know the truth stings you like a bee but it is true nonetheless. You claim to be a champion but it is YOU who have crowned yourself. No one has crowned you. You have been a snake from the start. I remember our “co-guest writer game review.” I remember that it was I who had to pull the weight because you disappeared at the last minute. Abandonment was the first sign of your disloyalties my -friend- enemy. You shall suffer the blows of time and the disgrace of the criminal that you are.

  326. thought this was too funny to not post…

    The 1st testicular guard was used in 1874. The 1st helmet was used in 1974… took men 100 yrs to realize their brain is important too

  327. wicky,

    You were a champion of lunch once. Don’t you remember how that made you feel? Don’t you remember how you gaited merrily to your lunchbox each day and took pride in what it contained?

    Yet, alas, you now inhabit the deep, dark, unforgiving abyss that is the realm of Manny. The same Manny who promised you an interview, yet, did you ever get an interview? The same Manny whom, when you temporarily joined the lunch brigade, showed no remorse in having lost you?

    I want you back, wicky. You were an important soldier in our gallant struggle. Come home, wicky. Come home.

  328. Here he goes, wicky with his trappings! Deny him. Deny him the pleasure of once again drawing you in only to make you suffer when you are most vulnerable!

  329. In regards to the guest review, I believe you asked me if I would like to join you, and I believed I voiced my concerns over doing so. But I was a nice person, so I said I’d help. Unavoidable circumstances arose in which I fed relatives weary from a long day. Not only did I feed them a delicious meal, I fed them love and care. Both terms which you are certainly unfamiliar with.

  330. Help!? I do not need your help. Don’t act like you no more about this team than I do. I have eyes and I can see what happens on the ice and correctly analyze the situation by myself thank you very much. I am sure whatever meal you cooked them involved poison. You most likely were only after their money and they were not relatives but weary travelers on the road trying to escape New Jersey.

  331. Ilb is here. See that Latona – you need SERIOUS help. I would recommend a stint in the county jail to sort out your issues.

  332. My non-professional opinion is that you’re not very good at speaking English, Manny.

    I don’t appreciate being called a loonie as I stand alone against a united front of hate and suffering.

  333. ILB
    I am worth more than a Canadian dollar!!!

    I remember how horrible (the “h” is silent) it felt to have them just arbitrarily taken away!!!!

  334. wicky,

    Perhaps with you at my side we can implement a new system in which an elected boards of lunchstees can overturn rescinded lunch points. You can sit in the head chair.

    Manny blasphemes again! Lowercase “g” in God!

  335. That’s fine, Latona. You can attack me with your monotheistic, theological garbage. I am not afraid of your petty and mediocre critiques of my typing!

  336. Oh, now you’re using niceties and formalities with me in defense of wicky? Yeah, we’ll see how wicky feels when he’s slowly rotting away in a prison cell far below the surface of the earth as you lash away at him with your whip made up of human muscle tissue.

    wicky can play a big part in the lunch community though. He’ll be respected and loved there.

  337. How do you know that wicky doesn’t enjoy being whipped with a cat-of-nine-tails made of human flesh and bone?

  338. Don’t even joke around Latona. I know that you are a freak of all freaks. The women-folk know it. You know it. Don’t attempt to dodge the blame here.

  339. latona
    “can” play a big part, I was in second place until my points were “assimilated” into some dark corner of another’s stockpile.

    I just keep getting lower and lower on the lunch totem…

    god with a small “g”, is that code for avery with a small “a”?

  340. What does my apparently having creepy fetishes have to do with blame for anything? The only thing I can be blamed for is my staunch defense of all that is good at RR.

  341. Manny, you really shouldn’t talk about yourself like that, although it’s a rather accurate depiction of your day to day actions.

  342. I see, hear, and speak no evil. Just kidding, I have to suffer through each day with you hacking away at my invincible barrier of fortitude.

  343. Latona: “On a mountain of skulls, in the castle of pain, I sat on a throne of blood! What was will be! What is will be no more! Now is the season of evil!”

    That is a direct quote.

  344. Gandhi on Latona: “I have also seen children successfully surmounting the effects of an evil inheritance. That is due to purity being an inherent attribute of the soul.” – Gandhi

  345. Lambs are delicious, and can be pointworthy components of an astounding meal. However, I do not personally oversee the meeting of ends for the lambs, and I slaughter no figurative lambs, as all in the domain of lunch exist in infinite happiness evermore.

    Find where I said that, Manny. Find it. I know it’s difficult to see through all the blood splatter on the computer screen from the unborn you harvested for research purposes.

  346. When asked about how to defeat Latona, Martink Luther King, Jr. responded: “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

  347. Shakespeare eagerly looks forward to Latona’s death: “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.”

  348. Watch yourself Latona – as Socrates has said of your dribblings: “False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.”

  349. So now not only are you unable to argue for yourself, you can’t even find actual quotes to argue with. Unreal.

  350. You know, Latona, I think Plato summed up what I have to say to you best, “Ignorance of all things is an evil neither terrible nor excessive, nor yet the greatest of all; but great cleverness and much learning, if they be accompanied by a bad training, are a much greater misfortune.”

  351. I recently noticed bound young women being led out of your abode by a gentleman in a leopard-print suit. Have anything to say about that, Manny?

  352. Latona, I hate to fight you but I remember the great George Orwell, “War is evil, but it is often the lesser evil.”

  353. I am allowed to do what I like with my spare time and on my private property Latona. Just because I associate with the Pirate known as “Calico Jack” is no reason for you to judge me!

  354. As St. Augustine said, “He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.” You are Evil.

  355. You know Latona, “If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself, if it be a lie, laugh at it.” – Epictetus. Your silence can thus only mean one thing…

  356. Perhaps you are just bored with life Latona. Maybe you should find a hobby and that would cure your insatiable appetite for EVIL.

    “Boredom is the root of all evil – the despairing refusal to be oneself.” – Soren Kierkegaard

  357. Latona you rich, arrogant man. Here is what “the people” say to you!

    “Despair is typical of those who do not understand the causes of evil, see no way out, and are incapable of struggle. The modern industrial proletariat does not belong to the category of such classes.” – Vladimir Lenin

  358. I hate to fight you, Latona because even in fighting evil those same evil emotions within you are stirred up in me. It is much like the Ring that Frodo must wear around his neck. He carries that burden to save the world (middle earth). I, too, must bear a burden to rid the world of your evil!

  359. You have been seduced by evil Latona. Seduced I say, “The mediation by the serpent was necessary. Evil can seduce man, but cannot become man.” – Franz Kafka

  360. Generate your own arguments. I can’t tolerate having to decipher these random quotes and how they don’t relate to me. Besides, I have a lunch to eat.


    how many deserved points have you truly taken from others just to fill your own lunch point coffers??

  362. AND…don’t forget wicky that Latona has no real tally of who is winning. No one was crowned winner. Ever

  363. Sally’s in the lead with 403. Jimbo has 401. NYR has 400. ilb has 8. wicky, you’re in fifth with 7, if you take back your oath to Manny.

    I myself only have three.

  364. I would love to see proof of these victories from the first 3 people on that list.

    The number of points doled out to the top three would indicate over 3 years of lunch contest victories when in fact the lunch contest is less than 6 months old…HMMM

    The tawdry ramblings of an evil evil lunch point nazi doling out lunch point to the voluptuous breasts of the leader and the dolly partonesque guise which they portray as well as frivolously awarding his minions (Jimbo and NYR) at the mere drop of a hat, while the rest of the good folks diligently try to impress the tyrant with heartfelt and earnest effort in preparing that mid day culinary delight he so trivializes with unfair practices and shameful unearned rewards!!


  365. He who giveth taketh away. Such is the way of the lunch point distributor. Duties are to be fulfilled, promises to be kept, and lunch laws broken are to be punished sufficiently. Nobody forced you participate in, as wicky put it, that midday culinary delight competition. If you have such an issue with my competent, morally fibrous, and undoubtedly fair leadership, why don’t you establish a rogue lunch faction, giving out worthless lunch points to benefactors you deem worthy? I wish nothing more than safety, stability, and savory flavors to be imparted onto the lunch brigade. You seek to usurp power and contort it towards strictly personal ends. Begone, creatures of the dark.

  366. unbelievable latona, a true kill shot on the field of honour and you use your black magic to deflect it

  367. As I am a non-practitioner of necromancy and other deplorable sorceries, there was no such kill shot.

  368. You practice Necromancing!? You’re a necromancer! EVIL! 666! Sign of the beast! Loggers of the world, UNITE

  369. “Every judgement of conscience, be it right or wrong, be it about things evil in themselves or morally indifferent, is obligatory, in such wise that he who acts against his conscience always sins.” – Thomas Aquinas

  370. You really just went there, didn’t you? You really just went there?

    You have until approximately 2PM EST to atone for that grave sin. If you fail to do so, I’d watch out.

  371. Manny the One True Logger on

    I will spend this 15 minutes sharpening my blade and hardening my shield. I will fight you to the death on the edge of the Cliff’s of Insanity!

  372. Manny the One True Logger on

    Let’s please keep the logging to this post as we destroyed the intelligent hatred of our team that we love in the other post.

    I am not afraid Latona. My shield bears the crest of my family and the blood of my enemies.

  373. manny
    Once long ago wicky and manny stood together on the field of battle, I am here to honour that allegiance again!

  374. Sworn enemy, I have a question for thee. It seems almost immediately after the allegations were made that I was somehow a lunch nazi, ilb emerged from the woodwork and terminated my contract. Did ilb manipulate you in some way, shape or form, even subconsciously, into making false claims about my leadership?

  375. Manny the One True Logger on

    I am a man of stature and pride, Latona. I cannot be manipulated. I speak only in serious manner and serious form and am impregnable to his cunnings

  376. Well, I gave you one last chance to weasel your way out of the situation. Looks like I’ll have to destroy you.

    Estlla, photon blast!

    *Latona’s MAG causes great damage in a three-character wide spacing (ATP+synchro)*

    *ilb2001* November 10th, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    LMAO, guys, are really still there? Your maturity level is just about equal to a 3 month old baby with diaper rash….


  378. Manny the One True Logger on

    I will tap more mana to cast spells across your land! Sorcery! Enchantment! Tap Mana! ATTACK! ATTACK!

  379. Neither of you are really unhappy with my lunch leadership – ilb’s manifested himself inside your brains, it is HE who is threatened by my semi-important position! He’s afraid I’ll take the captaincy from him!

    If you allow me to retain my lunch responsibilities, I will aid you fellow loggers in your fight against the unjust captain, ilb!

  380. Manny the One True Logger on

    Latona doesn’t know what he’s saying. He’s possibly possessed by an evil sorcerer

  381. Manny the One True Logger on

    Latona – are you proposing a Truce of sorts to attack the Captain? The enemy of my enemy is my friend!

  382. Manny the One True Logger on

    I see your ceasefire and I grant this truce from now until the destruction of the one they call, ilb.

    Wicky!? Where dost thou stand, brother?

  383. Manny the One True Logger on

    Shall we plot openly in the other thread or shall we plot here, in all our logging secrecy?

  384. Manny the One True Logger on

    The other post has fallen eerily silent. Perhaps they are plotting against us Loggers from a different post! Maybe they are BANJing against us!

  385. Manny the One True Logger on

    Infiltration! NYR – where do your loyalties lie? We are making a move against the powerful.

  386. How are we going to remove ilb from his self-righteous captaincy when he doesn’t log? Do we assault him on the normal thread?

  387. We need to make a plan. Plans are important, Latona my -enemy- friend. We must make a plan against ilb. We need to figure out what matters the most to him and then destroy it.

  388. Doesn’t he like Jerusalem? Considering how successful all its captors over the last two millennia have been, we should probably start there.

  389. He loves Jerusalem and all of Israel. I still have some friends over there and my hebrew is still ok. I might be able to pull some strings. Head towards that peaceful two state solutions.

  390. Latona November 10th, 2011 at 12:51 pm
    Sally’s in the lead with 403. Jimbo has 401. NYR has 400. ilb has 8. wicky, you’re in fifth with 7, if you take back your oath to Manny.

    I myself only have three.


    Amazing….I didn’t know I was so close to Sally!! Thanks, Latona.

  391. Let’s be civil, Manny. No reason to take a cheap shot at your Dad, too. So what he’s better at golf than you? Strike one is right. Thankfully, we have this forum to discuss and critique…

  392. You’re right. He obliterates me. And he is a match play genius. You’re right. I love the guy. Darn it.

  393. I have to consult with Latona on this one…it might have been in the strike zone….considering we are logging, it might not be a big deal…time will tell….

  394. NYR,

    Since he admitted his wrongs, we’ll give him a pass. How about 1 strike, and if he gets another severe strike, it’ll automatically be three?

    I’m on my third box of Kleenexes though. I think I’ll be okay? Will I? :(

  395. omg, we traded kundratek!! i better tell the rest of the heads bfore they find out. thees gonna be a riot in here when they find out

    I wanted to be… a lumberjack!

    Leaping from tree to tree, as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia. The Giant Redwood. The Larch. The Fir! The mighty Scots Pine! The lofty flowering Cherry! The plucky little Apsen! The limping Roo tree of Nigeria. The towering Wattle of Aldershot! The Maidenhead Weeping Water Plant! The naughty Leicestershire Flashing Oak! The flatulent Elm of West Ruislip! The Quercus Maximus Bamber Gascoigni! The Epigillus! The Barter Hughius Greenus!

    With my best buddy by my side, we’d sing! Sing! Sing!

    I’m a lumberjack, and I’m okay.
    I sleep all night and I work all day.

    He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.
    I go to the lavatory.
    On Wednesdays I go shoppin’
    And have buttered scones for tea.

    He cuts down trees. He eats his lunch.
    He goes to the lavatory.
    On Wednesdays he goes shopping
    And has buttered scones for tea.

    He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    I cut down trees. I skip and jump.
    I like to press wild flowers.
    I put on women’s clothing
    And hang around in bars.

    He cuts down trees. He skips and jumps.
    He likes to press wild flowers.
    He puts on women’s clothing
    And hangs around in bars?!

    He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    I cut down trees. I wear high heels,
    Suspendies, and a bra.
    I wish I’d been a girlie,
    Just like my dear Papa.

    He cuts down trees. He wears high heels,
    Suspendies, and a bra?!

    What’s this? Wants to be a girlie?! Oh, My!
    And I thought you were so rugged! Poofter!…

    He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okaaaaay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

  397. Notice, Manny, the line that follows: “I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.”

    Seems to me that loggers eat lunch.

    Also take note of this line: “I put on women’s clothing”

    If it were true that I sported feminine garb, this would only be normal behavior for a logger.

  398. This song was not directed at you, Latona. It is just some funny Monty Python. It was the LUNCH line that attracted me.

  399. Morning, wick. Happy Veteran’s Day to yourself; from what I understand, you were in the service, and for that you have my thanks.

    You don’t have my thanks for being in the service of Manny, though.

  400. *ilb2001* November 11th, 2011 at 11:35 am
    Two questions for the “loggers”
    1. Are you still going on the “logging” post?
    And, if yes:
    2. Have you taken your morning meds?



  401. *Wicky©* November 11th, 2011 at 11:40 am
    yes and which pills are they…so many to chose from?

    *Manny* November 11th, 2011 at 11:44 am
    Watch yourself, ilb. We are not to be trifled with.

    *ilb2001* November 11th, 2011 at 11:48 am
    Doesn’t matter, Wicky. After reading Manny’s comment, I’m afraid it’s not curable anyway :-)


  402. Loggers only have one pet – their chainsaw. The only trusted animal that can accompany you is a bear.

  403. Hello fellow Loggers. Six in a row. I have to attribute it to our Logging and we obviously can’t stop now until we win the Lord’s Cup.

  404. Sorry loggers! Was out with a few of my closest friends for birthday festivities… seems like I missed a great game!

  405. Quite alright, Latona. I was out myself but I did make it back. Watching the game for the second time right now. Loving this 6 game streak.

  406. iWicky (Leeloo Dallas mul-ti-pass) on

    Morning loggers!!

    Happy birthday latona and predictably I am off to work!!


  407. Oh well Happy Birthday to your friend who doesn’t, LOG. I can’t believe you hung out with those LOSERS. Just kidding.

  408. You were at a bar full of non-loggers. I only had three in my company. Don’t even go there, Manny.

    Strike two.

  409. You’re right. I was at a bar of non-loggers. I tried to talk to kids who post on Blueshirt Banter into joining the forces here. More people to fight our Captain.

  410. A few years ago, they were honoring Fischler on MSG for something or other, and they showed a picture of him from way back when. God, was he hideous.

    He is one of a kind, though. And he does have an awesome name.

  411. Yea he is one of a kind. No Disrespect but his name is just……absurd and so useful in so many situations.

  412. Thin Ice? I usually skate with an oil can in front of me to make sure I don’t fall through the ice.

  413. I do not think I am better than you. I just grew up skating on ponds. Never played organized hockey though.

  414. So you played unorganized hockey, then. Organization is a common denominator for all great leaders; shall I trust you keep the ceasefire and allocate sufficient resources to defeat the captain? Or do I have to worry about your ability as head of your faction…

  415. I just want to let everyone know that I never, ever played anything resembling hockey. I grew up a fan of the Hartford Whalers. I know terrible, awful hockey. Thus, I LOVE this team!

  416. Morning, loggers. As I was teaching the kindelach about Adam and Eve this morning, they kept talking about the Tree of Knowledge; I couldn’t help but think of my fine friends back at RR who log each and every day.

  417. ‘Tis a beautiful day indeed, NYR. ‘Tis. I hear the chrysanthumums will be blossoming shortly. The maids and maidens shall be excited indeed!


  419. Logger of the world unite. Unite on this Monday, Novermber 14, 2011. Unite on this glorious day in which we begin our conquest of the world!

  420. I’m back on my normal schedule this week, so I will be back on my regular RR/logging schedule as well.

  421. The funny thing is, I’m not wholly satisfied with my roster. I only have five players from the Eastern Conference. But they’re performing way too well to tinker with.

  422. Oh haha haha haha. That’s so funny! You’re winning and you’re not even happy with your team or trying.

    Rub it in.

  423. I really don’t try that much! All I do is make sure I have as many players as possible in the line-up.

  424. Oh I see – yes you’re on pace to go well over the maximum games allowed per position (not counting Goaltending)

  425. Oh boy….Look at the bottom of your lineup page. There is a whole chart. You are allowed 82 games per slot per season.

  426. Well you have to do it strategically. I have been doing that all along and it hasn’t done me any good! I guess you should just get max production because eventually you won’t be able to use some of the position slots so you will lose games. SO don’t play people that will put up 0’s.

  427. You know, Latona, it seems to me that we have been abandoned by all the loggers. It might be us against the world. Two enemies, bound in a mortal struggle against evil.

  428. Nice NYR. Hey Wicky! I have 1 win in your fantasy league. Latona is winning my Yahoo! league I stupidly invited him into but once Sidney Crosby comes back….watch out!

  429. Yeah, wicky, I’m doing horrible in your ESPN league. I think all my losses were somewhat close, but I couldn’t really say. That league has lots of rules and mechanisms and such, and the Yahoo! league, even with being much simpler, is way over my head. I feel badly not participating as much as I should.

  430. Also, I strongly dislike the ESPN interface. None of this is your fault, of course. It was really cool of you to invite us boneheads.

  431. The ESPN interface is horrendous. Not your fault Wicky. Yahoo! is MUCH better and easier to navigate.

  432. I appreciate the gesture very much; I’m sure many boneheads are having a blast, I’m just too small-brained to get it.

    And do you? Interesting.. very interesting..

  433. Wicky© I would be embarrassed if I was a Buffalo Sabre!! on

    would that be if I was a buffalo sabre or if I were a buffalo sabre? Neither looks right

  434. Dear Fellow Loggers – we must make a decision whether to BANJ in the post before (or any post before) the Go Time post or whether we will remain here and be stationary.

    It might be best to hide for more privacy.

  435. Wicky© I would be embarrassed if I were a Buffalo Sabre!! on

    I usually don’t post a lot during the games (if I am not working during them), so I will do whatever the rest of you loggers decide!

  436. Ok that’s fine with me. I don’t really blog/log a lot during games but I liked talking about the game in here where there were fewer people and less negativity during positive play.

  437. Now I feel all spunky!

    Earlier today I went to buy some jeans. I am sick (that’s the first part of the story). So I rushed over to the nearest JCrew because I washed some levi’s that I have had for 6 months and they were way too tight. So I went over to get some jeans. I tried them on and was kind of in a hazy sick place, emotionally. As I was headed to the register I decided, for no reason, to get them a size smaller than I tried on because I thought those were loose. Now I have to go back and return these and get the size up because my idiot idea proved to be idiotic.

  438. Wicky© I would be embarrassed if I were a Buffalo Sabre!! on

    I hope you feel better bro and…LMFAO!!

    btw, love jcrew myself

  439. Hmm. Is that true guys? I only wear Levi’s but I am trying to expand to JCrew because I heard the 484 slim fit is decent. Any Advice!? HELP ME OUT. I tried to call Sean Favery but he didn’t pick up.

  440. Oh, oh, I didn’t realize you were specifically referring to JCrew jeans. I only wear Levi jeans. I do enjoy other JCrew garmentry, however.

  441. That pretty much describes my style before today Latona. Today I became a new man by opting for JCrew jeans!

  442. NYR_FAN "Step-on the GAS!" on

    Levi’s is the only way to go. Slim straight fit. Fashionable. Cheap. Durable.

  443. Oy, vey…I don’t know if you noticed, but there are few new posts after this one, loggers :-)

  444. NYR – I believe you are referring to the 514’s. I am a big fan of the 511’s.

    Where is Sean Favery when we need him.

  445. Oh that sounds delicious, Latona. MSG or No MSG? That was insane. Talk about goalies being fair game…

  446. 514s rule NYR. I did move into the 511’s recently and I had a pair of 591’s although I shrunk them in the wash recently.

  447. I have blessed you with the great fruits of fantasy hockey, Manny. Crosby, Vokoun, Callahan, Franzen. Why do you dishonor me in this way?

  448. As good as the Rangers can play, they RARELY have shifts as exciting as that one was by the Fishsticks.

  449. It’s true. I am completely blowing it. I picked up Stepan and Girardi today speaking of Rangers.

  450. Wicky© I would be embarrassed if I were a Buffalo Sabre!! on

    you used to be such a fun person to convo with, what happened?

  451. Man Henrik is good. Wow. Talk about getting contributions from up and down the lineup. Faves? Mrs. Eminger? Whew!

  452. Manny on
