Quick Things

by Anne

  • Bandits games are the worst and I hate them for reasons completely unrelated to lacrosse
  • I don't want Rositslav Klesla. Send an oft-injured top 6 playmaking center in exchange for an oft-injured stay-at-home defenseman who produces goals at a rate of one per season? This does not strike me as the right move
  • In the same article linked above our very own Buffalo News says that Florida wants a top 4 defenseman and a veteran forward in exchange for Jay Bouwmeester. Ummmmm how about Max and Hank? I don't know that Hank is definitely a top 4 guy but we could pretend he is and Max is super speedy and kids like him for reasons no one understands
  • Big Bear scored the game winning goal last night as the Canucks beat the Lighting 2-1. Woo!
  • The Devils did us a solid and beat the Panthers 7-2 this afternoon. Thanks!
  • Unfortunately the Butter Snaps are playing Atlanta tonight so I don't know that the Thrashers will do us the same kindness.
  • I was just thinking about how great that 05-06 team was and then I clicked onto and saw that Danny has been activated from IR
  • I have my house to myself all weekend and its great
  • I don't understand why people keep changing their names on Facebook to be their middle name or some crazy other spelling of their current name.
  • I took a nap for like an hour today and when I picked up my phone I had three missed calls two voicemails and 45 text messages. I've never felt more popular
  • You know what? This whole "Ovechkin v. Crosby" battle is swayed by one thing: whichever one of their teams is doing better. I distinctly remember last season both Millbury and McGuire saying they'd rather have Crosby on their team and we all know how well the Pens did last season. This year? They both disown Crosby and verbally fellate AO. Next year? Who knows.
  • I'm really bummed that I'm not watching the game tonight. Because of this it will more than likely be a 10-0 blowout. That would be a good thing.
  • Rihanna supposedly being back with Chris Brown makes me sad
  • This might be the Sabres' last game without Vanek. Hooray!


  1. kids like him for reasons no one understands
    Whenever I'm talking to a kid who likes hockey they ALWAYS tell me afinogenov is their favorite and it makes absolutely no sense to me. I want to shake them and make them actually watch him play.

  2. Awwww. Big Bear's goal was one of the ugliest ones I've ever seen. It basically knocked off Vinny's skate into the net. But YAY! His interview was totes adorable after and now he's up to 13.
