Just Some Stuff

by Anne

I don't have much time to write because I have about 150 pages left to read before I head to this class which I might not go to because I feel like garbage.

I want to throttle Thomas Vanek for that turnover that gave Kovalchuk a breakaway. I want to wring Lindy's neck for having Teppo out there during OT.

However. I must pause and reflect.

Thomas Vanek may have handed out the biggest turnover of the season in OT, but he was also the only player that scored for the Sabres yesterday. Thomas Vanek's two goals gave us one point and his turnover cost us the other. Never has one player been so directly involved in the earning and losing of standings points.

Moving on:
  • The Sabres signed Matt Generous and I read some really inaccurate article about him yesterday and Cari, Kim and S(h)ara had to set me straight last night at Tully's. People need to check their facts before they start righting blurbs for accredited news sites. That's all I'm sayin' about that.
  • I should probably welcome Matt Generous aboard the FailShip as I do all incoming players but my lunch is ready and I have reading to do and an essay to type so that shall have to wait.
  • Also, I organized the tags yesterday so they are a little more user friendly. I left the tags up there people are most likely to be searching for. If we only had one post tagged with something, that tag probably did not make it onto the list. It makes the the list much much shorter and, if nothing else, it irritates me a lot less.
  • I also fail because we were going to do an April Fool's post last night but I forgot to write it so I'll have to save it for next year.
  • The Kings are releasing new wallpaper for a different player every month, this month is Matt Greene. Hooray! It is not currently my background because I can't bring myself to take Dan Paille's open-mouthed, curiously wide-eyed look of wonder picture down as my wallpaper.
  • Tonight the Canucks host the Ducks and the Kings are on the road in Phoenix, both at 10:00 p.m. Booo.
