Summer of Carp off to a roaring start


First the desktop computer breaks down … leaving me to rely on this piece of carcillo Mac laptop all weekend, at least through today.

Then, I’m out mowing the lawn Sunday when it starts to rain. But the garage door opener broke, and nobody is home, and I don’t have my keys because I’m mowing the lawn, so I’m locked out of the house in the rain. And now I have to find somebody to come fix the garage door, because my car is locked in the garage and the door won’t budge.

So that’s how I’m going to spend my first day of vacation. Yee-freakin-hah.

Got quite a few volunteers for guest blogs. Could always use more, if anybody’s interested. If so, email me at

About Author


  1. I have to tell you that your second paragraph would be an excellent opening for a short story. Better than Raisman, who can be pretty funny in print. Take it from a story-teller.

  2. Morning peeps,

    Carp, that sucks. What a way to start your vacation. You figure the week cant get any worse..hopefully. Unless the paper calls you up and asks you to cover the labor rift between the nhl and nhlpa

  3. Carp, on the garage door opener, there should be a short string w/ a handle hanging down from the track that the chain or pulley rides along. Pull it down and that should disengage the chain from the main unit. You can now open your garage door manually.

  4. ilb, I would have thought so too but I have a reputation here at home for stating the obvious.

    I wonder if Doan’s hesitancy to sign is just a tactic to give his family more time to pack?

  5. How did you get back in the house?

    Obviously, the string thing only works from INSIDE the house :)

    And sometimes when the garage door breaks the string won’t work and you can’t even release it.

  6. Poor Carp. What a tough life. You are successful enough to own multiple computers and to have a lawn that is large enough to require a power mower. Oh, and you get vacations.

    Getting rained on sucks though. Sorry about that.

  7. Johnny LaRue on

    You shouldn’t take a vacation. You could injure your legs due to an extended period of extreme inactivity.

  8. by “piece of carcillo Mac laptop”, CARP means that it’s a state-of-the-art, superfast and superthin, beautifully-designed and user-oriented machine that exceeds all PC laptops by no less than 5 years (aka the time if takes Dell or HP to figure out how to copy Apple’s engineering).

  9. Carp, in cosolation from my favorite:
    “A man can be destroyed but not defeated”.
    “A man’s got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny blog”.
    Ernest Hemingway

  10. Good morning, Sally!

    Thanks all for the attempted help with the garage door release, but, yes, it’s inside, yes, I know about it, and no, even when I got into the house eventually (and dried off), the release didn’t work.

    newbear, why don’t you go someplace where they just talk about line combinations all summer. there’s a whole list of other blogs down the right side over there ———-> I’m sure you can find one where nobody likes each other.

  11. Sorry Carp,
    I did realize you were outside and couldn’t pull the release…which obviously didn’t help…
    Usually when I have something that breaks I kick it or punch it but being a chiropractor, the kick thing suits me better…
    Last week I wanted to throw the office dell PC to the street….sorry but love my macbook pro.

  12. Reginald Dunlop on

    Don’t worry Carpy….you probably won’t need to take your car out for work until December or so

  13. Carp, not trying to insult your intelligence and I’m only mentioning this because it happened to me, but did you check the manual locking device on the door itself? My daughter inadvertently locked me out that way once.

  14. Good morning, Carp! Garage doors are stupid. You should move to Buffalo where we just ride around on dog sleds year-round. Much more reliable.

  15. Reg, I’ve got Thanksgiving Day training camp opening in the lockout pool.

    No worries, everybody. I wasn’t insulted. In fact, it’s an upset that this really wasn’t my fault or due to my stupidity whatsoever.

    jpg, want to swap my Mac for your PC? Or do you just want my Mac (and I can report is stolen)?

    Johnny, first he tried to jiggle the key.

  16. Hambone, do you name all the dogs, and do they pull the sled in the same order every time, or do some get to be in the front once in a while and in the back once in a while? and where do you keep the dogs? where do you keep the sled? what if you want to go out (in August) and there’s not enough snow?

  17. I sure hope newbear isn’t reading this … you know, people talking to one another in a friendly, civilized manner without mentioning line combos.

  18. So many questions! Since I’m a lefty @commie@ I like to make sure all the dogs share the burden equally, while also taking into account that each dog is special and different in their own way.

    Every house in Buffalo has a little snow fort for sleds & dogs.

    And there’s almost always enough snow. In the rare chance there’s a shortage, we just grease the streets with Frank’s Red Hot and ride around on that instead.

  19. Defensive Pairings

    NYR – Latona
    ORR – Ria
    eric – bull dog

    Goalie: Carp
    Backup Goalie: David Klein

  20. I don’t know who our coach is but I would support a change like that.

    Do we maybe have a player coach? Reggie Dunlop?

  21. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    I got third line duty – We will shut any top line down to the ground, won’t make a sound, homeward bound …. Is a great song, third and long, Wang and Wong, ding and dong, hit the bong….. Right or wrong, bang a gong get it on..


  22. I don’t know why you just can’t make the post office pay for a new computer. It’s a write off for them.

  23. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    If she’s gone I can’t go on, feeling 2 feet small.
    Everywhere people stare each and every day.

  24. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    Mars rover successfully landed last night – let’s kick some Martian assen

  25. Funny thing about Newbear- he doesn’t talk line combos either. All he does is “analyze” people. Boy, there is a significant interpersonal skills issue. With very little knowledge of having that issue per se. To an extent that I truly feel sorry for him.

  26. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    I wondered past the shop displays
    Heard cathedral bells
    Skipping down the alleyway

    As I walked on, you ran to me
    Your cheeks flushed with the night
    I kisses your honey hair
    With my grateful tears

  27. Well, that was in his contract. If the value of franchise goes up during his tenure, he gets a percentage. Don’t blame him at all.

  28. This an actual explanation of how Canucks value went up during those years. Has very little to do with Messier being there. But that is how his contract was agreed upon, hence the arbitrator’s ruling.

  29. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    What a dream I had
    Pressed in Ormandy
    Closed in crinoline
    Of smokey burgundy
    Softer than the rain
    I wandered empty streets down
    Passed the shop display
    I heard cathedral bells
    Skipping in the alley way
    as I walked on
    And when you ran to me
    Your cheeks flushed with the night
    We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight

    I held your hand

  30. The whole Messier/NYR/Vancouver decision of 1997 — made mostly by the Rangers’ ownership at the time — was a fiasco for everybody. Everybody lost (other than the money Messier made; his legacy and all the non-playoff years were damaging).

    Johnny, I smell cherry Binaca.

  31. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    I have my books and my poetry to protect me

    A rock has no pain and an island never cries.

  32. If NHL/NHLPA negotiation sessions continue at the same pace, we are going to have to write our own music….

  33. Im gonna need a switch w Manny for 1st line lw! Tiki has the killer instinct ….ask redbone… and the scoring abilities…. shes a hot husky that can pick up any hot guy doggie she wants. Plus there are dubi gloves that require my presence on 1st line. :)

  34. Don’t worry, Tiki. We all know that Tort will switch up the line combinations frequently. You will get there soon with hard work.

  35. Ive put in the hard work Manny! This Tort guy hates me! Hey Tort, Im gonna throw my skates in the Hudson you childish jerk! :goes home to cry to mommy:

  36. I’ve always said that leadership is the most overrated character trait for an athlete. Leadership without the ability to perforrm is…….a coach that’s taking up a roster spot.

  37. ive got a couple songs for u ilb..

    Redbone: hes a shrewd dude with a rude attitude… (repeated 27 times, for number of Yankees championships)

    Tiki: shes my lil lady, shes just a baby… shes a good girl, a lady and a pearl. (Repeated 109 times, for number of championships Yankees should have)

  38. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    ricardo – you are likely right….i write what i hear….and i dont hear so good anymore….

    that said, i’d rather be a hammer than a nail…if i could, i surely would

  39. Didn’t mean to leave people out – there’s still a whole defence (?) to fill in. Tony & Rose from AZ make a good pair. Carp should be coach. We should be called The Cliques.

  40. Cross Check, that’s fair … a leader can only lead if he can also perform and thus earn the respect of those he is supposed to lead …

    on the other hand, you have performers who are anti-leaders, like Santonio Holmes and Caramelo Anthony, who only lead their teams astray (yay, I kept shooting 3-pointers even though we were ahead by 100!).

  41. Santonio Holmes is a Super Bowl MVP, making one of the greatest catches in SB history.

    From everything Jeremy Lin said about Carmelo on his way to Houston, he said Carmelo is a phenomenal teammate that always had his back and helped him grow as a person. In addition, he’s having one of the best Olympics ever for a Mens basketball player.

    Maybe he will grow on the court in the future. Sometimes, things click for a guy and I have a feeling this is the year he becomes a complete team player… and the Knicks still get ousted in the 1st round.

  42. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    Do you know who I am? I am Moe Green!!! I made my bones when you were banging cheerleaders.

  43. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    saw a werewolf with a chinese menu in his hand, walking thru the streets of soho in the rain,
    looking for a place called lee ho phuks, gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein…

  44. Santonio Holmes is also one of the most miscast captains in NFL history … quit on his team. Even in the Super Bowl in which he made the catch, during that very game, he cost his team time on the clock and yardage, by doing me-first showboating and taunting. P.O.C.

  45. LW, if I’m the coach, I’m only going to have one assistant. And don’t ask me why I don’t have more. Also, feel free to start a rumor that my assistant and I aren’t getting along.

  46. also … if I am going to hire an assistant it has to be somebody with absolutely no clue about running a PP.

  47. I dont really have any arguments on Santonio, he did quit and he isnt a leader. I will say this, he and every other WR showboats and does their stupid first down carcillo.

    I do wish youd use other examples once in a while, like Randy Moss, Chad Johnson, Kevin Youkilis, Manny Ramirez.

  48. Gabe Kapler was always called a “leader” and then he managed in the minor’s and then came back up to the Majors to take up a roster spot.

  49. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    Carmello – there aint no “I” in team…and there aint no “I” in pass me the damn ball

    know what Im sayin?

  50. Gabe Kapler was ripped. Not only for a baseball player but also for a Jew.

    He did strike out though when Nick Swisher was pitching in relief in a game in St. Pete’s.

  51. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    eggplant and artichoke parmesan, red sauce, capers, garlic, salt, pepper….layered in the crock pot….5 hours, then sprinkled with fresh rosemary and parmesan cheese….

    nutritious and delicious…

  52. Haha, thanks Carp!

    Some people amaze me with their condemnations of people. Carmelo lacks character? Has he committed any crimes? Has he insulted “cancer patients” like Kevin Garnett? Has he thrown down a 65 year old traveling secretary like Manny Ramirez did because the secretary didnt get him the right amount of tickets. Maybe its because he forced a trade from his former team, like so many athletes have before him and so many athletes will again. Save the word character for appropriate times, like Joe Paterno condoning and facilitating the molestation of children for 14 years and then in the midst of a growing scandal, getting himself a sweetheart retirement deal from PSU. He may not be an on-court leader, but if Carmelo has no character, then I have no character.

    At least if Carp says something, he’s been in the sports business for a long time, although he’s only 26. He’s been around athletes for much of his life, it’s his job.

  53. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    convert to christianity or we will kill you…..ahhhh, a loving god….

    jerry sandusky hears over and over “hey teacher, leave those kids alone” in the big house

  55. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    tiki – with HST, the buck stopped with him….with Mellow, the ball stops with him

  56. My friend, a baseball minor leaguer, has dealt with the effects of heart problems much of his life. He takes different medicines, he got busted a couple years ago for PEDs, got a 50 game suspension because he took a medicine that wasnt on the approved list and tested positive. He wasnt trying to enhance his performance. Maybe he has no character too.

  57. Speaking of Carp, 26. There’s this guy on the Seattle Mariners named Mike Carp and he’s 26 years old. Seriously. :)

  58. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    tiki – he clearly had no heart…which is a sign of no character…..i kidd, of course…..ooops, i meant i smash into utility poles too…

  59. Haha! I wonder if he’s Italian, ill have to look it up. Carp actually just had a child yesterday, went home to California to be with his wife during labor.

  60. And Mike Carp joined MLB the same year as Mike Trout increasing the players named after fish by two-fold.

  61. It’s probably pretty much true, NYR. Remember when they couldn’t find room for him in their outfield?

  62. Melo got his name backwards. He should be Anthony Carmelo. At least his mother didn’t name him “Saint.”

  63. Kate Upton is now with Justin Verlander. She really upgraded, from the loser Mark Sanchez to a Cy Young/MVP Verlander.

  64. I don’t post much any more (if I ever did) but I have to say you guys crack me up!

    RR should be an Olympic Event.

  65. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    kate upton gave me detached retinas…..i have a workman’s comp claim in….all i see is jiggle, wiggle, move and groove….

  66. Yeah, Manny. I remember being at a Yankee game early in the season laughing at his name…(something to the effect of “Haha, look at that loser’s name!”)

    I bet he’s laughing now…

  67. @AdamRotter Buzz@: Shane Doan May Actually Choose His Team Soon


    Hockey News!

  68. Go USA! Alex Morgan!! Since nobody knows, the Angels drafted Mike Trout with the compensation pick they received from the Yankees signing of Mark Teixeira.

  74. What in hell do you call that?

    Well, you’re not walking down the street with me and my daughter looking like that, that’s for damn sure.

  75. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    listening to Steve Hamilton, Joe Frank, and Reynolds

  76. you can obviously tell by now that my garage door and my computer are still being fixed and I’m a prisoner at my piece of crap Mac laptop.

  77. Just start scratching. Tell him you have the crabs. He was in the military. He’ll understand that.

  78. Yeah, they should’ve taken care of Castro when they had the chance. Like we did in Guatamala in ‘fifty-three.

  79. With the great quality of g(j)ibberish you’ve produced, Carp, I think I may call that geek and tell him to take his sweet time. Maybe he should take lessons from NHL/NHLPA on how to be productive.

  80. sorry, ilb. how’s this?:


  81. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    dont forget to take out the garbage and throw out the Tresh

    tike – did you see that venus and serena won the mixed doubles Gold? :)

  84. for the record, and for those who think I have a personal thing against Avery … I think he’s way, way better than Asham or that clown Haley.

  85. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    GIVE AVERY THE C…..and unlimited OJ…….and free wifi

  86. Avery is way better than a bunch of players when he wants to be and when he tries. He was better than Mitchell. That’s for sure. He was a better forward than Bickel.

    But he *retired*

  87. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    ricardo – say what you will about #16, but he is a sure fire first ballot HoF’er

  88. i saw Serena and Venus win the women’s doubles :) quit your whining Carp, we all know that you hate the Avery because his favorite color is pink!!

  89. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    the rumor i am hearing – if Avery can redesign the NYR uniform…..he will un-retire….

  90. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    pat hickey, bill dickey, and the greatest CF ever…Mantle, Mickey

  91. e3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my friends on

    tiki – fair question….if you were to be crushed….would you rather it be by a: 1) Steam roller; 2) Boa constrictor; or 3) Serena’s thighs

  92. since you asked, my fair eddie! i wouldnt mind having my head buried between Serena’s thighs!

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

    BOSTON is awful. One and done .

    Montreal sucks , Prust is gonna have to fight every game!! Put on 20 pounds and move to heavyweight. What team would give that kinda money to a goon!??

    Columbust , Now that’s a good team!!! Dubinsky on the top line!!! He got the moves like Jagr!!

    Oh btw VANCOUVER , you should watch and LEARN how to host an olympics like LONDON. Vancouver is a discrace to Canada.

  116. Another opus inspired by e3:
    After sweating train, which has stopped at Main, I got melted brain, lost my ancient cane, cleaning ugly stain from my shirt “McCain” (it was all in vein), watching lonely crane, flying in the rain and in full disdain, after all this pain, drinking to insane wine, which made in Spain, scotch from pure grain, etc.
    Take it all with grain (of salt), plus a slice of lemon, and a shot of tequila – then you’ll be on par with my condition. Viva la Rangeurs!

    i think I’m turning japanese…i really think so…

  123. …from other hand, we are all Jews in the Holocaust, Sighs in the day of Temple shooting and Japanese in the A-Bomb Anniversary. Aren’t we? Or it is too philosophical?

  124. ilb,
    Your desperate attempt to get conversation back to hockey theme is really appreciated.
    Too bad it is “…lazy mama, sunny afternoon” in summer time. Lazy thoughts and typing fingers.

  125. E3 pimp's angel on

    4-ever “turning Japanese” is a saying referring to pulling one’s chain :)

  126. E3 pimp's angel on

    The insane shooter in Wisconsin was a known hate rock lover……hate rock + alcohol = serious problems.

  127. Please, don’t get me wrong – rarely I’m too serious in my comments, “turning Japanese” including. At best, it semi-serious… But thanks anyway, e3 – my cultural icon.

  128. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    Ilb – Hank needs a huge save in game 1 early on in the first to get his head into the season…

  129. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    Ilb – according to Johnny Mac, Hank is the best amateur tennis player he has ever seen… Must be that quick glove hand…

  130. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    Moreover, Hank should pretend his goalie stick is a great big Prince Control racquet. That is a great stick if you like finessing the ball…

  131. What any and all of you know about hockey or anything else could fit in a pinkie’s fingernail.

  132. I love manicures and pedicures. It feels great to be treated like a king. I especially love the hand and leg massages that come along with them.

  133. Is anyone watching the replay of the Olympic women’s soccer semifinal game between France and Japan? Holy smokes! What a great game! Men teams should take a lesson from these girls in how to play football the right way!

  134. Did you watch US-Canada, CCCP? These girls have…. bigger than building. Can’t wait to see the final.

  135. If you think my minor tweak was outrageously disrespectful of others, none of you ever played hockey. Keep buying tickets and ordering 8 dollar dogs.

  136. I’m watching the US vs Canada game right now…I know about the score and the controversial call that led to a game tying goal by the USA.

    Japan, USA, Canada – these teams don’t even come close to any championships in men football… So weird!

  137. Carp

    Can we have out first summer flush, please? This “person” adds absolutely nothing to the conversation. Nothing.

  138. E3 (pimp's angel) stay thirsty my freinds on

    Hombre – sorry mate, but I played ice hockey and street….

    You, on the other hand, have probably never broken a sweat except when pulling your chain.

    Cccp=Brooklyn pimp – congrats… Keep studying…never surrender…

  140. I don’t think it was outrageously disrespectful. Just extremely weak. Maybe you can change your name again and say something else?

  141. He hasn’t crossed a line where I’d flush him … and in fact, under some of his other names, he’s capable of being quite humorous.

  142. The more I think about it and peruse the potential, talented three lines, I think those who say the boys might need a little more snarl may be right.

    Vickers8 – we never should have let ec get away. The crusher has mire snarl than any 5 players in the NHL combined.

  144. I was afraid for a minute that you guys may think I would change my screen name to “Hombre”. but in all fairness, Carp knows it is not so, thanks Carp !!
    I am, in fact, a student of cyber-communities and as such i know that every community, cyber or not, needs its village idiot. This is not the same as a “court jester” or “speaking truth to power” role – that would be to easy to pull. I have to tread the thin line between being mildly offensive to a said cyber-community and still not being killed by it. The sports-oriented folks are likely to be the most sensitive to perceived electronic wrongs, that is why I started with the analysis (as Ilb observed correctly).
    But everything so far is very disappointing, no drastic action has occurred, with the exception of CCCP saying “STFU, THANK YOU” and consequently revealing that thing about his mid-term exam, vow, he’s a college aspirant, no less. I had to look up his acronym online and was surprised how easy it is to hide the soulessness in English. CCCP’s father, a Russian speaker, would, most likely, have none of this, I reckon. But still, he pays for his son’s “education” !!!
    As far as the Coxsackie virus, in “Eric”‘s case, I would have recommended the old wifes’ relief, a cup of warm milk with a bomb of honey in it couple of times a day, thank you very much.

    Next time, we will talk about ice hockey, as the community allows, I defer totally.

  145. Because of Greg, I was thinking of what my motivational speech would be to a team, like before the SB this past year, this is what I came up with…

    Listen up guys, you bust your aasens all year for this. You work all your life for this opportunity. THere’s only one thing that matters now. Its this game tonight. Forget your families, forget your kids, forget your money, the only thing in life that matters is this game. This is New York against boston, guys! You go out there and you punish them. Torture them, rip them limb from limb, when you get through w them, make sure their own kids dont recognize em!! You make them wish they were dead! Go out there and take whats ours!!!! YEAH!!!


  146. Stationed in the South Georgia coal station, witnessed a miraculous recovery of the Shackelton expedition,, came back to Cardiff to appear as a foreigner to all. It is a sheer poetry for a lonely soul.

  147. Tiki,
    II am really enamoured with your continuing attemps to shift this nonsense to the “ice hockey subject” but it won’t work, we are more comfortable with golf and b-ball, those sports are much more palatable to slow to grasp people. Even with 56″ screens, to wit.

  148. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© " Don't stepan the logo,Nash!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Not too bad a speech Tiki . Good one!!

    Umm this newbear is alot like that knucklehead Rod.
