Ravens advance!

In other news:
Being in California meant I missed the last hockey game. But my team, who I just got done dissing on this blog, gutted out a heroic 2nd-round playoff win against the #1 seed to put us in the semi-finals.
Apparently we only had 10 skaters, but they skated their ankles off and our goalie (a grouchy, profane, likeable aussie named Donna) had 42 saves. The game ended in a shootout (one-on-nones against the goalies), and my guys pulled it off.
Since it's a double-elimination finals tournament, we have two shots at getting into the finals and/or winning the whole thing.
Yeeah, baby!

Hmmmm. Your team seems to do better without you.

I love going to hockey games. My finest hour as a fan was when I attended a Kings/Flames game with my uncle. We shouted "Fleruy, you weenie!" so many times that the Calgary fans started throwing stuff at us. hee hee hee

As a matter of fact, unca, they do. We played last night and since I was there, we lost. (I missed on two semi-breakaways that would have won us the game if I'd managed to score.) On one I lost the handle on my final deke, on the second I put a backhander off the high post. But I wasn't the only one, and for the most part I had a good game, and I wasn't on the ice for any of their goals except for an empty-netter they scored with 30 seconds left...
Applevenusian, welcome. And even tho I'm from Calgary, I forgive you for hassling Fleury -- all's fair in love and hockey...

"grouchy, profane, lkeable" is an intriguing description. Is Donna male?!

Wow, what's worse than losing the handle on your final deke?

irma, donna's female. but when she's frustrated during a game, you can hear her uttering unpronounceable aussie swearwords thru her mask...

unca, i think you're making fun. FWIW, a deke is a feint with the puck, in case someone cared.
