  • SNOW DAY!  And for once they canceled early enough for me to turn off my alarm before it went off six times and fall back asleep for two hours.  Two whole hours.  It was fabulous.  The October Storm aside, I think we broke the record for the most snow days in the shortest period of time.  Three snow days in less than two school weeks?  Madness!   The only bad thing is that now if we get another snow day they’ll chop days off our Memorial Weekend.  Eh.  (But why couldn’t this have happened tomorrow?  I have to swim again tomorrow, and that pool is disgusting.  I scrubbed in the shower last night and I still smell like chlorine.)
  • Mats made his debut last night with the Canucks.  They won, but Mats was held shotless and pointless.  Ah, well.  I can’t wait to see him skate on a line with the Sedins.
  • Oh, the love that is a new Alex interview!  This one is pretty good, Dear Readers.  The guy they dubbed it with sounds kind of like a robot, but you occasionally get to hear Alex’s sexy Russian.  (Speaking of Russian, I was totally jealous of Andre in the second question on my French quiz yesterday.  He had just visited Russia!)  I’m not sure which part was the best: the dancing, the lucky scissors, or the eggs.  Just for the record, while I would probably camp out on his front step or something, I would never do anything as random as putting two eggs on the end of his driveway.  (Kudos to whoever did, however.  That’s a pretty spectacular idea)
  • Montreal beat New York last night thanks to Robert Lang’s tour du chapeau.  The third goal of it apparently came when New York had a 6-on-3?  That’s hilarious.  The Rangers couldn’t score when they had a three man advantage.  Even Atlanta can do that.  Buffalo needs the win tomorrow night, because New York is only six points ahead of them.  All these teams are starting to fall apart!  What is up with that?
  • The standings are really close.  We at TFF Headquarters were studying them last night and decided that it’s going to come right down to the wire.  It’ll be really interesting to see who ends up in and who ends up out.  (Washington is not that far behind Boston, guys.  It’s actually starting to look like they might have a realistic chance to bump Boston out of the top spot.)  We also decided last night that Buffalo has to move up in the standings so that they aren’t playing Washington this spring, because if we are faced with a Washington/Buffalo playoff series, I’m leaving the country.  (My first hockey dream is to one day see the Sabres lift the Stanley Cup.  My second is to see Alex lift that bad boy.)
  • Timmy is coming back on Friday.  We were also placing bets last night on how long he would last.  I’ve got money on him tripping over himself on his third shift and being out for the rest of the season with a broken neck.
  • East All Star Reserves getting named today.  Tvan will be representing Buffalo, I’m sure of it.  If there’s a more deserving player, I have yet to see him.  It will be interesting to see who else makes the cut.  Other than Alex, of course, because the  league needs to have their annual press conference.  You know, the one where Sid and Alex sit together and the reporters ask Sid questions for about twenty minutes and Alex politely sits there and then at the very end they ask him a stupid question about what it’s like “getting a chance to play with Sidney.”
  • Andrew Peters is one of the most politically correct players I have ever heard.  He is saying all the right things throughout this whole bite incident.  And he’s absolutely right, too.  I don’t care if “cannibalism” (oh Lindy, ILY!) is a dirty part of the game that’s kept hush-hush.  Jarkko Ruutu is setting a bad example for all the kids who look up to hockey players.  He’s making the sport look bad, and hockey should be on SportsCenter more often than when someone gets bit.

  1. I wonder if Jarkko could tell us what flavor Petey is, perhaps hot sauce or chicken wing flavored?

  2. I wonder if Jarkko could tell us what flavor Petey is
    Not to sound gross or anything, but I bet Petey would taste kinda good. He kind of seems like the person that would.

  3. Who is Tvan? After all my studying I’ve never heard of him and yet he’s good enough to be on tha All-Star team? *huffs*

  4. Poor Alex, he’s going to have to sit through an hour of reporters groping Shitney.
    I pity him.

  5. Ruutu’s a freak. hee hee and Peters would DEFINATELY taste REALLY good!
