Overtime means never having to say you’re sorry…

May 7, 2009
…for coming into work late.
Yes, hockey fans were treated to two overtime games last night. The Penguin-Caps game was one for the ages. A last minute (or two) goal, a long overtime session, and the greatest stunned picture of all time.

(He’s a ginger. He has no soul.)

The Caps are still up 2-1 with game 4 in Pittsburgh on Friday. Getcha popcorn ready.

We decided to play Rock Band instead of watch the rest of the Boston-Carolina game. I still stand by this decision. Carolina came out on top, putting them up 2-1.

Unlike the N, I am not rooting for Boston. It’s nothing personal. They are just really good at hockey and I don’t want the Penguins to play them. (Also, I hate the N, so I guess it’s kind of personal.)

In the Western Conference, Gordon Bombay has the Ducks up 2-1 on the Red Wings. And Vancouver is up 2-1 on Chicago. Oh, Canada! indeed.

Welcome to the middle of the NHL playoffs. Other than the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, you’d be hard pressed to find anything more exciting.

Thoughts on the Clemson Game

February 26, 2009

Unlike the man up north, your humble editor is actually devoted to his team and watched the entire game last night. He also woke up in the hospital with a rare case of heart attack with brain aneurysm. Bad combo, the doctors said.

But during recovery, a few thoughts were processed:

  • You know when someone takes a long 3-pointer and you scream “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”, but then they drain it? This game had that feeling for about 2 hours. “Holy lord, you just threw the ball to them. Oh, they threw it back. And we got a dunk. I need to lay down.”
  • Free throw percentage: 58.6% – Is that for real? We shot 57.9% from three-point land. Victor Davila and Jeff Allen managed to go a solid 1-8 from the stripe. If I’m Duke, I’m fouling Davila or Allen every time down the floor. (Also, if I was Duke, I would be unhappy with my life choices.)
  • Speaking of Allen, is he even on the team? The guy finished with 5 points and 4 fouls. That’s Marcus Sailes type numbers. Dorenzo Hudson outscored him in 2 shot attempts.
  • Oglesby… ugh. Where is Deron Washington when you really need someone to get teabagged?
  • Tanner Smith. White boy name? Or whitest name EVER? Freaking gingers…
  • Saint Christopher, your help will not be forgotten. You are the best 18 foot tall saint ever.

So here’s the blue print – win one more regular season game and one in the ACC tourney. That should put us in, but no promises.

This game started a new lease on the season. There is hope, and hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever died.
