Tit for tat

EDMONTON OILERS 2
VANCOUVER CANOOKS 1

Ah thank god. The world righted itself with a reciprocal Oilers victory tonight. What a game! Hey, remember when Ethan Moreau shot that puck off of Rory Fitzpatrick's ugly and untalented mug, shattering his nose and cheekbones into a fine red mist, with the blood-splattered puck trickling past a traumatized Dany Sabourin? Huh? Well? Or when Patrick Thoresen laid facedown on the blueline and humped the puck all the way into the net? It was weird... but awesome!

Okay, okay. Clearly, I didn't watch the game and I'm a little fuzzy on the "details." I'm not sure if anyone else on this funny little blog did, either. That's okay: we won, Edmonton is a world class city and Calgary lost in regulation. Now if only we could dump those lame Todd McFarlane third jerseys.

In the meantime, I stumbled on this odd little blog. Looks like ex-Oiler Mike Peca has started his own blog on blogspot, presumably to "get the word out" everytime he scores one of his 9 goals this season. A rare and illuminating look into the mind of a professional hockey player, indeed.

... It kind of looks like a joke. But I don't get it.

That has to be a joke. It can't be Peca. There aren't any spelling mistakes.

James Mirtle said...

I like how his introduction ends with him stating his height and weight.

Has to be fake.

Loxy said...

Maybe he can help me with our challenge.

Inside information rules!

Earl Sleek said...

God I've been going nuts wondering why Peca isn't scoring. Thanks for putting my mind at ease.

Now where's Roenick's excuse blog?

"attack the strained hip flexor with their sticks and punches. By the way, I don't have a strained hip flexor"

That's pretty funny.

Am I the only one who actually likes those jerseys?

You guys still all work nights? You should swing by the Casa Mc79 one night if not, we'll drag out Eau de Chacin and enjoy the soulful stylings of Kevin Quinn on the PBP.

Do you still have any Eau de Chacin left? I imagine the sample bottles are rather small.

why do people keep creating these fake "I'm a hockey player" blogs?

And why do people keep linking to them?

Hey, what do I know. Maybe it's real and his blogroll will include Gino Odjick and Taylor Pyatt on Myspace.

I thought he insisted on being called "Michael" these days. I think it's a fake.

Anybody else concerned about the 0/8 pp? All that talent and the Oil doesn't even average a shot/pp, let alone score a couple? I really don't know how Simpson has kept his job so long.

Pleasure Motors said...

I really want that blog to be real, mostly because I really wish Mike Peca was the type of person who posted pictures of himself with every post, and phrased sentences like a 10-year-old writing a book report.

"I am five-foot-eleven and I weigh 180 pounds. I have a lower-body injury. I cannot tell you what kind of lower-body injury I have because then I would get attacked with sticks and punches. I eat berries nuts and grubs. I live in wooded areas ranging from the West Coast to the Appalachian mountains."

I like those thirds, too. They're awesome, though I wouldn't want to see them replace the primaries.

Doogie said...

Oh, and it's kind of hard to score on the PP when you get set up properly exactly twice on eight opportunities. I'm still trying to figure out why they kept trying to carry it in the same way every time. It's like reinforced stupidity or something.

I have a soft spot for the third jerz too. Every individual element in it is oh so wrong, yet the whole is somehow right.

i turned on the game right after thoresen scored. i wish i could have seen the first 5 minutes instead of the next 55. jussi was almost shutout solid. almost everyone else had wooden clogs for hands. out of 8 powerplays, i'd say we had 8 bad ones. i'm glad those boys have some time to do some drills before next game. either team could have pulled that one out of their asses. except the fact that the oilers are the greatest team in hockey.

way to tell it like it is case
hair or no hair, carpet or no carpet, simpson should be fired.
as for the thirds i guess it is a case of least worst
the oil's 3rds don't suck...
when you compare them to:
bostons friendly yello bear
la's old ones w/ a king face
anh's shorrt lived "wild wing" gay jerseys
colorados "look at us wer'e old school purple"
any canux jersey in their putrid history
dallas'" what the fuck is that" 3rd jersey
ETC ETC.

that craig guy
