It’s Go Time! … hopefully not the last one ever


Fingers and toes crossed.

According to the Mayan calendar, it’s all over at 11:11 a.m. But, as it was pointed out yesterday, nobody ever mentioned if that was Eastern time, Mountain time, Pacific time, Mayan time …

Along those lines, there will be a special new post at 11:11 a.m. Eastern time … if we are still here.

And if we are, then we can resume discussing this lockout thing, which is almost at the point of no return, but I believe has at least two weeks, maybe even three, to play out. I’ve said all along, it’s got to get grim first, and there would probably have to be a point of no return, a drop-dead date, in order for a deal to be struck.

I think that point is coming, but not yet. As we can also see, this whole thing was scripted and perfectly orchestrated by the owners and the Lockout Commissioner. Freakin’ idiots.

If the Mayans are correct, then today is the drop-dead date, the point of no return, and we don’t have to worry about the lockout anymore. If they’re wrong, it’s the first day of winter, two days away from Festivus!!!!!!

So we’ll see. Or we won’t.

    NP. No games. NP.

    Got Rangers BLog. I can make it. Carpy can help us make it. Go Carpy!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Gotta love it. Not eleven AM, but 11:11. Too bad they spent so much time and effort on this metaphysical nonsense and never understood or utilized the simple wheel for commerce and “industry.”

  3. Kukulcan, “miraculous” priest and founder of the Maya Kingdom, wore a Rolex GMT ICE Sant Blanc which dangled from a leather strap from his waist. He has been quoted as having said: ‘Time is on My Side,’ which comment was later put to music and made famous by Mick Jagger.

  4. shocker no season this year.

    wow what a suprise. and that will accomplish exactly zilch.

    same scum owners who own teams that are not financially viable will be still trying to extort rich teams like the rangers and buttface will still be yapping.

    they are all morons……..

  5. Well, we’re still here – i’ve had a bacon sandwich and coffee – buts its still only 3:50a.m in central America so unless they were specific about the time its all good.
    Tell Bill Daly the world’s not ended, go fetch Bettman from his bunker and get this deal done so hockey fans can celebrate a new CBA for Xmas.

  6. There is a sexy Santa and an Angel in our office today – productivity is down, other things are up!

  7. 11:11 is the time of the winter solstice, and it’s 11:11 greenwich mean time, which was 6:11 here in the eastern time zone. So we made it (pretty disappointing apocolypse, if you ask me).

  8. Mayan Blog Master: Rod, baby! Long time no see, What’s shaking?

    Rod: Look, I like you guys , so I ‘m gonna give you some inside stuff. But it’s not good.

    Mayan Blog Master: What do mean?

    Rod: The world is coming to an end on 12-21-12.

    Mayan Blog Master: Shut up! How do you know?

    Rod: Look, I got sources. And I’m sick and tired of you and your ungrateful pea brains questioning me every time I try to help. You sit around all day and don’t do any work. I’m outta here.

    Mayan Blog Master: No, no Rod. Come back. Are you sure on this one? Cuz you know, stuff you’ve given me in the past, well…….

    Rod: You can take this one to the Mayan Bank, if you guys hava bank.

    Mayan Blog Master: Alright Rod. I’ll run with this. If it’s true I’ll look like a genius to all the pea brains, at least until their pea brains turn into pea soup. Thanks, you’re the best. I know I don’t tell you that enough. BTW, did the Rangers really kick the tires on the Kovalchuk thing?

  9. Very funny UK Ranger……

    It’s over…stick a fork in it…..the NHL, not the world.

    See you at 11:11

  10. Good morning, boneheads!

    Yeah, you’re right dowlmb, 6:11 ET…So we made it. Just don’t tell Carp. We haven’t had a loud “It’s Go Time” for months…Le’s have some fun with it.

  11. Apparently, Marty Brodeur was seen last night piling three years’ worth of food into his car outside a grocery store.

    When asked if he was preparing a bunker for the apocalypse, he gave a blank look and said “Huh?”

  12. Just in case the Mayan’s got their time wrong i have consumed Bacon, nachos, onion rings mince pies and cupcakes – if im going tonight at least my stomach will be happy!

  13. Can’t this end of the world bonanza put pressure on the owners and players and Bettman and other idiots to solve this situation? Seems like that is a point of no return.

  14. Was Maarty having Dustin Byfuglien over for a BBQ? Man that would need some serious sized grill!

  15. By tonight, it won’t be your stomach anymore, UK….Unless my knowledge of physiology is fading.

  16. Nice find, BANJ! We need to start charging them a royalty fee for using RR’s name. I smell a long legal battle. Any of the boneheads are practicing the intellectual property law? Manny? Doodie? Noah?
