Having Raffi in the corner really makes this photo.

A beneficent Raffi looks down upon us, making sure he doesn't kill the beer buzz...

Also, what's Pisani's record on the shootout, anyway? I bet you a coke that every single one of his goals has been through the five hole.

Anyway, I look forward to coming home for Xmas and not having bar patrons stare at us whenever we whoop over Oilers goals. Kind of like Alf when he finally went back to Melmac.

As much as I'd like to make fun of this picture - the guy on the right with two watches (?), the hipsters with the carefully constructed look that says "I don't care what my clothes/hair/beard look like", etc - I just can't, because it really sums up what is beautiful about being a hockey fan when your team wins.

Hey, "anonymous," let's have a photo of you so we can nitpick your fucking fleece vest. How come whenever the real bitches show up they opt for invisibility?

Anonymous said...

Um, okay, "Fish." Exactly how does registering with a name like "Fish" make you any less "invisible" than me?

Justin said...

Okay, there. I'm "Justin." Which is actually my real name. I'm 40 and I'll post a real picture of myself if you will, "Fish."

I don't know what's funnier -- that someone thinks my friends are dandies, or I can claim honourary hipster status (that's my fat ass in the foreground).

>I'm 40 and I'll post a real picture of myself if you will, "Fish."

Just no nudity this time, guys. This is a family website.

Justin said...

To be fair, garnet, by 'hipster' I was referring to the two fellas in the middle. It's not a pejorative term, by the way. I just don't know what else to call that look.

Your ass doesn't look particularly fat, either.

Holy shit! That "Art attack!" post of a few days ago was a self portrait?

mike w said...

Uh... zing?

If it helps any, Garnet, I also don't think your ass looks particularly fat.

Anyone care to chat about hockey?

I'm SO OVER "Am I Hot Or Not" after I got a 9.2 (the trick is to wedge a pencil between your pecs while holding a fuzzy kitten in your arms).

i can't believe you guys are wearing 'jeans'. you hipsters are all the same.

roloson was great although he hates smiddy's stick apparantly. raffi's triple head fake/lizard mating ritual was excellent. nice to see hrude-boy recognizing the excellence of smytty's backhanded swat goal(i don't know if it was better than gretzky's though). well deserved win.

Fish said...

Thanks for coming out, Justin. That's all I axed. There's just so many scrote-less anon flamers. As for me, Fish is indeed my name and I write for lots of newspapers and magazines across the country, so I ain't exactly hiding. I just couldn't belive you took these poor guys to task for trying to be cool. I know everyone in the photo and they're all solid, real folks just as you eventually came to believe.
But hey, I'm really fucked up on coke right now playing Wii Zelda, so have a nice night.

Justin said...

I didn't mean to take them to task. I just turned 40 so I get easily confused and scared by the customs and fads of the younger generation. Have a nice night yourself.

anj said...

seriously. i saw that guy in the middle's jays shirt in urban outfitters last week. wtf? omg!

"As much as I'd like to make fun of this picture - the guy on the right with two watches (?)"

One watch for Toronto time, the other one for Edmonton time, that way I can better imagine exactly what the Oil are doing at any given time during the day -- ah hahahahahahahahaha!

Actually, it's just a cheap-o wristband. The real question is: why did I suddenly suffer a seizure while playing air fiddle? Gotta love those candids.
