Two worlds collide


WUH-BOOM! Fuck yeah! Look at those world chunks fly! Well, that's space for you. Just two planets floating around, going about their own planetary business, their little planet minds preoccupied with their myriad planetary hopes and dreams and insecurities and fears until one day fucking BAM! Instant prog-rock LP cover. Only ashes and silence remain. Just another day in the cold, unknowable vastness of an uncaring universe. If you ask me, that smaller planet should have kept its head up. All part of the game.

ANY-WAYS, the team from my old town takes on the team from my new town tonight. Where oh where will my allegiance fall? On the side of the sad-sack, piece of shit, mercifully easy to ignore Maple Leafs whose defence has barfed up 23 goals against while losing four of their five with no hope in sight? Or on the side of the plucky Oilers, winners of their last two and seemingly destined to ride the sublimely skilled Hemsky, suddenly non-shitty Souray, magically delicious Deslauriers and newly-acquired human jackhammer Jesse Boulerice to an all-but-assured victory?

It's a tough call. I've yet to decide.

Rexall is going to packed to the rafters with patently obnoxious Leafers tonight. The Oilers would do well to silence them early en route to a... oh, I don't know... 7-2 win. Gonna be a blowout, kids. Keep your heads up out there!

IT'S ALIIIIVE!!!!!

And it's great to see.

Good post, Chris! (Did I do it right?)

But is it okay if I just take your word for it on Deslauriers?

And what's with these plural French noms de guerre? Laraque I could understand, he was always bigger than just one George, but Jeff's a little jeune for multiple laurels, non?

7-2 if only to see Boulerice re-align Jamal Mayers planets?

Those bastards had better not black out this one from GameCenter. It has been a while since I've seen an big Oilers win, and equally long since I've seen a devastating Leaves loss (not that they haven't suffered any, but...)

And — damn happy to see you posting, Chris!! Fucking Elt!!!

Howsabout a new game: you have to use your verification word in a sentence...

"A deep feeling of spreelis came over me when I heard that Burke was probably going to Toronto."

Ha! Suckers!

Chris! said...

Shit! Just tuned into Justin TV and see that the Oilers are wearing there cursed third jersey and losing 4-2!

Never would have called a blowout if I knew the thirds were coming out tonight. I mean, I love them and they're exquisitely classic, but they ALMOST ALWAYS LOSE when they wear them. I guess it must be tough dragging around those five Cups won by one of the greatest teams in NHL history for some reason.

Chris! said...

Well, that was just gross. I'm going to have to make a prosciutto and mozzarella pita pizza to make up for it.

HEY OILERS, CAN YOU STOP WEARING THOSE JERSEYS PLEASE?

Chris! said...

I just want to state for the record and those reading this tomorrow that this pita pizza is delicious, by the way.

LittleFury said...

Chris! I love what you're doing to me.

Kirk said...

That was a hard game to watch...anyone else notice that the high-sticking penalty in the first that was assessed to the Oil was a result of Hagman's own stick hitting him in the face?

How about Jason Blake's sudden decision to become a reckless pest a la Jordan Tootoo?


Verification word sentence:

I hope Bertuzzi gets permanently in-geerd-l. (I got nothin'.)

Black Dog said...

Everytime I log on here I have this sudden urge to fire up the tapedeck and throw in some Asia.

Greg Saint said...

How about the strange non-off-side call right before the Leafs third (I think) goal?

Apparently, if a puck hits a player's skate and goes into his own zone, he's intentionally playing it there.

Chris! said...

Fuckin Asia, man. Awesome.

Our high school in Sherwood Park had an art program in which you could get credits for painting a mural on a section of hallway. Every morning on my way to english class on the second floor, I got an eyeful of this totally wicked space dragon with the words "ASIA" painted above it.

teebeeplayer said...

Nice. We had a similar thing going on at my crappy school in Inuvik. For some reason, the painters there all had a raging boner for Saxon.

BenJammin said...

Great post Chris, too bad the Oil couldn't deliver. Shine on you crazy diamond.

Word verification: dersiv, as in the Oilers dersiv-ed that result.

I never meant to be so bad to you ...
