  • The new issue of Men’s Journal has a lovely photo spread of one of my preferred stupid, suspended Russians.  I spent about thirty seconds looked high and low across the internet but couldn’t find the pictures already on there and since my camera is in need of new batteries and the scanner has been broken for three years, you’ll just have to trust me that aside from the model who probably had intercourse with him, the pictures are pretty darn hot.
  • I saw a Myers third jersey today in school.  It made me warm and fuzzy.
  • NHL.com and I have been in a battle of epic proportions since May:  I want a Lars t-shirt and they don’t want me to get one.  I decided this in May when Larsie was tearing it up in the playoffs and being a BAMF and I was so in love with the Capitals and the first two games of the second round and everything was sunshine and daisies.  I think the video in this post also had a lot to do with that decision.  I made my way over to the online NHL Store only to discover that the only size they carried was an adult XXL.  There is no way a shirt in this size would ever, possibly fit me, so I decided to wait.  I checked periodically throughout the summer but it wasn’t until early October that they finally appeared to restock and appeared to be carrying my size.  I hurried to place my order and I was reviewing the final order before submitting it, I discovered that the item I ordered was backordered and it would ship in 2-4 weeks.  “I’ve been waiting since May,” I said to myself, “So I have no problem waiting a few extra weeks.  I won’t let them win.”  You can therefore imagine my surprise when, a week later, I received an email saying that my order had been further delayed and I would receive notification when it shipped.  Today I got an email saying the order was cancelled.  As I was NOT going to let them win, I hurriedly placed a call to the number at the bottom of the email.  I have now re-placed my order.  I got 20% off and it will ship in 2-4 weeks, they promise.  It’s not even like I want a Lars shirt SO BADLY that I simply HAVE TO HAVE IT, but just forgetting I ever wanted one is like letting the terrorists win.  So, NHL.com, you may have won this round, but I assure you that I will be victorious in the end.
  • I’m so sad that Spacek, formerly known as the beloved Caveman, is coming back to Buffalo.
  • I’m starting to get really pissed at Lindy.  Yo, dude, I get that we’re the only team that has yet to win a game with a backup in net, but seriously, Ryan is going to FALL APART.
  • Does anyone know if Matt Bradley is a papa yet?
  • I do not understand how Chicago is going to fit Toews, Kane, and Keith under the cap along with the Soupster, Hossa, and Huet.  It doesn’t make sense.  Isn’t that like 90% of their payroll right there?  There isn’t enough room!
  • I’m glad tomorrow’s Friday.
