  1. Merry Christmas Carp and Boneheads!!! Much more importantly, Happy 26th Bday to the Blog Capitan!!! The 2nd best man Ive ever known, he took me into his family and instilled in my heart a newfound love. For that, I owe him a debt of gratitude that I can never repay. Theres no better man than you, ilb!

    In honor of the holidays and ilb’s bday, please donate something, even just $1 will suffice, to the World Food Programme to help the millions of children that starve daily.


  2. I’m watching that last game again… I swear Kreider was loading up a loogie when Pasneuf was jawing behind the net,….

  3. Happy Birthday, ilb.

    Merry Xmas to all. You are all part of my extended family, enjoy the day.

    LGR !!!

  4. Regardless of affiliation (i.e. Gods, teams), I’m wishing for everyone a day full of joy, laughter and memories with family and friends that “last a lifetime”!

    Happy 26th ILB and happy Xmas and Boxing Day to carp and all the heads/everyone here. I hope you all have a fantastic holiday season!

    Thanks to all of the armed forces who can’t be with their loved ones today because they are out there so we don’t have to be!

  6. My 4 year old grandaughter was worried last night that Santa wouldn’t come because we had a fire burning in the fire place.

  7. A Jolly Good Christmas and Holiday to Everyone and their Fams!

    Got just what I wanted

    Torts – “where are my ******* presents? Who ******* put these ******* lumps of ******* coal in my ******* stocking?”

  9. And for all you English Majors out there, remember the definition of a Subordinate Clause – helper at the North Pole.

    I got an uncle daddy present – all three of my wife’s sisters tied up under my tree…

  11. Thanks, eddie3. Looks like I’ll need many more too. Just looked at college tuition, haven’t looked since my son graduated from medschool. :-)

    Ilb – indeed, the time$ have changed dramatically…like everything, sadly…..these days I light my fireplace and wood stove with $20 bills…cheap kindling

  13. College President, shaking hands with a long line of new graduates: “Congratulations, and thanks for the $300,000. Congratulations and thanks for the $300,000.”

  14. e, my old Dept Head had a sign on his door that read: “Please Don’t Squeeze the Chairman.” (Tissue ad reference I do believe.)

    Happy DOB, ilb.

  15. The littlest one here, with all kinds of expensive presents, chooses to play with plastic Tupperware that he found in under-sink cabinet. Go figure.

    Just passing on a message to all of you from grabby, he was in an accident last night and is pretty banged up (concussion, broken nose, broken collar bone, and a rib or two). He said don’t worry though, he will be back soon and to tell everyone happy holidays!!

  17. CCCP, if it makes you feel any better, 3/4’s of the time I have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about. And the other 1/4, I’m sleeping.

    Was thinking of trading grabby for some picks….but his low value needs means we just waive him.

    Ranger Report: December 25, 2013

    Blog father Carp has announced that Grabby, a lame albeit loyal bonehead, has been waived. Any interested blog can claim him (fat chance of that happening).

    Get well grabster….

    Cccp – we speak in code that only the highest forms of intelligence can understand…

  21. Grabby will have to play himself back into shape in Hartford. Like Connecticut, Grabs? Hope you feel better soon.

  22. Was reading somewhere in an old article that Slats was mainly interested in trading Gomez to free money up for Gaborik. I inferred that McDonuts was just an 875 thou Cap Hit with a Hartford $65 thou salary. More serendipity than foresight.

  23. Just saw Kyle Okposo doing a commercial for Public T.V. Intelligent young chap. Remind me to remove him from the totem pole.

  24. Eddie used to SIT on the stoop. Now he lives in Jurassic Park with snapping turtles the size of Sherman Tanks.

    Happy “26”th ilb ! Although we only met briefly Manny is spot on you are an amazing person & the world is better for it. BTW so is this blog. GRABBY get well soon.

    Grabby one upping the real Gabby. Raises his broken collarbone with a multitude of injuries.
    Get better soon, man.

    Peace on Earth. Goodwill to Men
