Things that are good:

  • SNOW DAY!!!!!  YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

Thing that are bad:

  • Still having to study for the reading quiz I’ll have if school isn’t canceled tomorrow.

Things that are good:

  • Ryan Miller.  Holy HELL, is that man good at hockey.  It was totally awesome when Sabretooth was bowing down to him.  He’s so good.  My jaw dropped multiple times.  Ryan, I want to thank you for redeeming yourself this year and making it less embarrassing for me to love you (because I don’t really broadcast it anymore, but I do still love him).  You’re so good at being a goaltender.  Just don’t burn out on me, ‘kay?

Things that are bad:

  • Getting shut out by the Sabres.  Um, Caps, you saw tape from their last two games, right?  Yikes, you need to learn how to score on elite goaltenders.

Things that are good:

  • Chris Clark totally looking at me three times.  Love ya, Christopher.

Things that are bad:

  • Fehric trying to flip me a puck and failing miserably.  Things Eric Fehr is not good at:  Shootouts, flipping pucks to dedicated fans during the pre-game skate.

Things that are good:

  • The Sabres killing off that power play the Caps had early on.  Wowzers, Sabres.  I know you have a great penalty kill, but the Caps have a great power play.  Y0u done good, boys, you done good.

Things that are bad:

  • Jose Theodore.  Varly, please get well soon.  (I realize he made some great saves, but all three goals he let in were really, really bad.)

Things that are good:

  • Alex coming over right in front of me and rattling the boards during the pre-game skate.  There were only a couple other fans by me at that time and they all had Sabres stuff on.  Alex, I love you.  I know I said this last December, but you’re HUGE in person.  And your hair is gross.  Yeah, I went there.

Things that are bad:

  • Alex playing arguably the worst game of his career.  First there was missing the WIDE OPEN NET by four feet.  Then there was the dive.  (My mom said Rob Ray didn’t think it was much of a dive and she didn’t either, but it happened right in front of me, and, well, it was pretty embellished.  Oh, Alex.)  Then he whined at the refs, and then he broke his stick.  That was just embarrassing.  I put up with so much crap from him, and then he broke his stick, and then I screamed “I STILL LOVE YOU ALEX” while he was getting a new one because I’m just trying to be a good fan.

Things that are good:

  • The Gerbe Derby got his first NHL goal!!  Yay!  Nate-dogg, I do love you so.  Congratulations, little man.  You earned it.  I’m glad you survived your collision with Tyler Myers, and I have to admit that it was pretty darn adorable.  Also, darling, picking on David Steckel is not the wisest idea since he’s twice as big as you.

Things that are bad:

  • Monty stealing Nathan’s first goal so he only got one instead of two.  Steve, that was not so nice.

Things that are good:

  • Henrik Tallinder’s goal.  Like, when the eff did he learn how to do that?

Things that are bad:

  • The Caps allowing Henrik Tallinder to score a goal like that.

Things that are good:

  • The first period.  That was an exciting period of hockey, folks.

Things that are bad:

  • The third period.  That was a really sloppy period.

Things that are good:

  • Lars’s hair.

Things that are bad:

  • I, uh, nope.  Got nothing.  Just look at that HAIR!

Things that are good:

  • The Sabres coming out after two crappy games and playing a really solid, great effort.  Way to bounce back, boys.  Y’all make me proud.

Things that are bad:

  • The Caps win streak ending.

Things that are good:

  • I got to see the secret handshake!!!!  Guys, it is even cuter in real life.  I laughed for about fifteen minutes.

Things that are bad:

  • I don’t get to see these two teams play each other in person again until March 😦

    Pictures! (And A Reason To Get Excited!!)

    October 12, 2008 at 5:37 pm | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Alexei Kovalev, I Was At The Game!, Montreal Canadiens, Players, Rob Ray, Ryan Miller, Sergei Kostitsyn | 1 Comment

    I uploaded my pictures from the game, and I’m going to warn you now: some are blurry (but I’ll try to weed those out.  Which means you won’t get any of Crunchy and Petey by the net. [But rest assured, they were there like always]).  I was FREEZING, and I may or may not have been a little jittery from excitement.

    I decided that I definitely like the new center ice logo.  I think I’m going to have to get a shirt with the original logo on it. I get the feeling that they’re trying to phase out the slug (and as long as we don’t go back to the goat, I think I’m okay with that).

    As you can see in this picture, Rob Ray wants us to think that he can write.   Rob, I’ve skimmed your autobiography/memoir thingie.  You can not write.  I’m sorry.

    (On the one where I managed to zoom in and catch him looking up, one of the overzealous Habs fans next to me decided to bump me.  I gave him a very dirty look)

    And I may or may not have squealed like a little girl and jumped up and down and whirled around to gesture wildly at my mom (who was in her seat reading the program) when Crunchy came out.  And since she knows it’s wisest to humor me when we’re at hockey games, she nodded and gave me a thumbs-up.

    Frostee’s train of thought at this point:  OHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGODTHERE’SAHOCKEYPLAYERANDMOREARECOMINGOHMIGODOHMIGODHOCKEYISALMOSTHERE!!!!

    Frostee’s train of thought at this point:  OHMIGODTHEREAREHOCKEYPLAYERS!!  LOTS OF THEM!! AND THEY’RE GETTING READY TO PLAY HOCKEY!!!!

    Alexei Kovalev is a total retard and kept skating in the way whenever I was trying to take a picture.  An adorable shot of Royzie and Petey standing together on the blue line was ruined thanks to him.

    And he wouldn’t let me get a shot of his face.  

    Frostee’s train of thought:  Whoa!  Zoom out!!!

    This next one is the reason to get excited:

    No, I’m not suddenly in love with Sergei, if that’s what you’re thinking.  (Although I had no problem with his decision to plop down right in front of me and start stretching)  This picture made me all excited and squeal-y because I wasn’t using zoom.  That was how close Mr. Kostitsyn was to me, and do you know what that means, Dear Readers?  In one day shy of three weeks, Alex Ovechkin will be that close to me.  Without the zoom.

     

    P.S.  My mom and I were discussing the sign I plan on making for the game, and we decided that the likelihood of him actually agreeing to sign my hat during the warm-up depends on how “in the zone” he gets before games.  I’m assuming that he doesn’t get all serious and whatnot, since I’ve seen pictures of him chewing gum (he’s really good at blowing bubbles) and sticking his tongue out and stuff, but I have not been able to confirm.  Has anybody reading this seen him play live before?  (BTW, if you have, I totally hate you and think you are the luckiest bastard on the planet)  Does he seem like the kind of guy that would go along with it if an attractive, sincere high school girl asked him to sign her Caps hat?  I will have a Sharpie on hand (because as Caitlin pointed out when I told her my diabolical plan “He’s not gonna have a marker with him while he’s warming up”), and I will even be wearing my Miller t-shirt.  I just think it would be so awesome if he did.  *swoons at the thought*
