Never too early to start thinking about next season...

With this Flyers season over and only a few games of any other hockey remaining, I have had plenty of time to hang out online and do some shopping. Online shopping is probably my favorite thing to do besides watching hockey. But now, I have combined the best of both worlds: shopping for stuff for hockey season online!

Did you know you can customize Converse Chucks? I can get Cons in Flyers colors! Woohoo!

You can also order cool bags from Timbuk2 with custom colors. Nice!! Too bad I couldn't get the picture of the bag to be any smaller!

I am going to be the absolute dorkiest Flyers fan next year! I have orange and black socks on the way as well...

Time for choosing sides...

Well, now that the final is set, I have to decide to to cheer for. I have to admit that I was rooting for Detroit, even though Anaheim was one of my favorite teams to watch during the regular season. I have this strange problem where I don't know who I am rooting for until I actually watch the first game of the series. I am leaning towards the Ducks, because there is so much Pronger hate out might be nice to annoy everyone by saying how much I love him.

Dear NBC Sports,

Are you f***ing kidding me?
You couldn't stay tuned for another half hour?

Worst Game Live Blog Ever

Well, since Interchangeable Parts has to work tonight, I will have nowhere to complain about the game. (Bethany is mobile, so I can't even complain to her!) I guess I will just have to yell at the television and randomly post thoughts about this final game.

19:51 Damn! Roy scores nine seconds in! Can't really blame Emery there since he hasn't seen any shots on goal since they played New Jersey. So Buffalo has just been lulling them into a false sense of security these past three games! Good plan!

16:41 No wait...the Sens are back. Okay, phew. They are all methed up again.

15:59 Phew that was close!

15:38 Okay I have lost interest in this whole liveblogging thing. I don't know how Liz and Eleanor do it! How do you watch and type at the same time? I guess since there are two of you it is a little easier?

15:00 Oh good Bethany is we can chat

14:44 Uh oh ..second ottawa power play...this can't end well

12:35 I need a commercial...oooh Versus read my mind...time for a beverage!

12:35 Crap! Busy chatting with Bethany and I forgot to get a beverage!

11:41 almost a wraparound...nice pressure on emery there

10:41 Are they gonna review that?

What the hell is wrong with Heatley's hat in this segment? WTF?

(lots of time passes..........)

End 2nd Yeah okay I give up...I am too tired and not nearly witty enough for this sort of grueling work...catch ya over at Interchangeable Parts!

Argh! Everyone is out of my socks!

You are looking at the world's most comfortable socks...Patagonia Lightweight Endurance Quarter Socks. I wear a size medium in fog/charcoal heather. I ordered the blue but it is a bit snug at the cuff...and they have white, but I am not wearing white socks. Nobody has charcoal in stock until mid June. I only have two pairs! I am doing laundry every day so I can wear them.

Before I met these socks, the first thing I would do at the end of my workday is take off my shoes and socks. However, these socks are so damn comfy that I leave them on after I take my shoes off. Yesterday, I wore them until it was time to go to bed! Even when it is 80 degrees outside, your feet are comfy and cool. I love them a lot!

If you see them online anywhere let me know so I can buy them. Yes, I understand this is a hockey blog, and not, but these are honestly the best socks ever!!!!!

Charlie Sheen or Daniel Briere?

If the Sabres don't show up soon, I am switching over to Two and a Half Men and I am not coming back. Miller needs a little support from the rest of you guys...cmon!

Say it ain't so, Brian Engblom!

You know I love your hair, but now I read that it might not be your hair? Please tell me it's not true!

Wow, my playoff picks were better than the paper bag!

Paper bag picks:
New York Rangers in seven
Anaheim Ducks in six
San Jose Sharks in five
Ottawa Senators in five
My picks:

New Jersey

Actual results:

Ottawa picks for this round are Ottawa and Detroit. Ottawa is on fire and Anaheim has had too much time off. I am actually rooting for Buffalo and Anaheim, but I now think it will be a Detroit/Ottawa final. So there!

Pensblog = spittake funny

I am sure you are familiar with the Pensblog. It has been on my bloglist for a while but I only started reading it regularly about a month ago. This blog is almost as funny as SportSquee, but much more offensive. You need to make sure you are not drinking anything while reading either of these blogs, as sudden fits of laughter may cause you to have juice come squirting out of your nose, which as we all know is a fairly painful predicament.

As a professional blog reader, I make it the third blog I read every day. (Number one and two, you know who you are, but I didn't want to make others jealous.) (Although calling you number one and number two makes me think I need to go to the bathroom...)

The best part of the Pensblog: endless use of the words "jobber", "owned", "stunned", and my personal favorite: "tucked in shirt = homo" under any picture of Jagr.

Don't say I didn't warn you about possible spit-takes and juice spurting out of your nose!

What to do?

Okay, I have myself a ticket for a Hershey Bears/Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins playoff game for Friday night. But game 5 of the Buffalo/Rangers game is on Friday night. (According to my calculations, it should have been on tonight, but don't ever try to figure out the NHL's system for scheduling these damn games.)

So what should I do? Make the 90 minute drive to Hershey, or sit on my ass on the couch for what will probably be a great game?

Pros of staying home: I can drink margaritas, I don't have to drive, I don't have to see Bears fans

Pros of going to Hershey: first in person game since April 15th, arena is nice, good food, potential to see some fights

I guess I will have to see how lazy I am feeling tomorrow!

Snap shot free since 93 (that's the only year that rhymes)

I want to appreciate all my fellow bloggers who have chosen not to enable those little "snap shot" pop up thingys on your blogs. At first, they seem really cool and what a cute idea! but they really just slow down the blog reading process. I don't need little things to pop up as I am scrolling down the page, and when I scroll over a link to read the address in my status bar, that little window that pops up is sooooo annoying.

Just keep kickin' it old school ladies!

And those of you who I may have offended with my little rant, it is not too late to just take it off your blog...we may not even remember that you had it!
