Poor Kevin Weekes

He's never gonna see any action after last night's game. I actually felt kinda bad for him. It's not like the Flyers were shellacking him, but you could see his chances to play in the regular season fade away after that second goal.

Last night was the first night in my new seats. They're okay. We discovered that we have a yeller in front of us. The kind who waits until it's quiet right before the anthem and then yells "DEVILS SUCK!" at the top of his lungs. If you heard that last night, just know that guy sits directly.in.front.of.me. Happy happy joy joy. Other words of wisdom from his yelly-ness: "HOLIK SUCKS!" and "SOMEBODY KILL HOLIK." It's gonna be a long season folks.

The game itself was typical preseason fare: Rod compared it to Mites on Ice, and I couldn't argue.

best line of the night: After I complained about a Flyer passing to a Devil, Rod said "at least it was tape to tape...."

No pictures, since I didn't feel like lugging my gear to a preseason game. Plus, we skipped warmups. I'll have pictures from Saturday's Spectrum game, which I found out last night is at 1 pm. Oops!

Flyers Training Camp Pictures

No silly, I didn't take pictures, I'm too lazy! Luckily for you, Nicole took the week off so she can document it for you!

Check out her pictures here. She also took pictures of the Meet the Flyers taping, you can see those here. Try to ignore the comments I made on her pictures. I may have been overcome by the sight of scruffy defensemen.

C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me...

I'm really trying to get back in the swing of things guys, I really am. But honestly, I've been enjoying this vacation from hockey and blogging and I have been dragging my feet. Heck, if the Pensblog has burnt out a bit and they are the masters, what chance do I have?

I got my season ticket booklet last week, which was enough to energize me for a day, but then reality set and I realized I have to go to 42 games this year. That's a lot of games yo! In 2006-2007 I did something like 56 games between the Phantoms and Flyers and roadtrips, and let me tell you, it nearly killed me! Being at the games is not so bad, but the whole process is a pain. For a 7pm start, I have to leave my house around 4 or 4:30 to avoid the bulk of the traffic. I get to the arena around 5:30 or 6:00 and go to my seats on the ice for warmups. Then the game and the traffic-y drive home. All in all, it's about a 7 hour deal. I know, poor Kristin, I feel so bad for you because you have to go to all the Flyers games. WAH!

What else is going on in Flyers land? Bad news for Steve Eminger: he has been given the number 26, so he may as well just pack it in now. Nitty is out and we get JS Aubin, the goalie who can't compete with Ryan Miller in a yo mama contest. Our slogan this year is Hungry For More, inviting more fat Philadelphian jokes than we already get.

Richie gets the C, which is good for him but for surprising for me. I truly thought that he would turn it down, because he is so "team team team" all the time. I hope it doesn't mess with his head as the letter C sometimes does with folks. Poor Cookie Monster, he gets crazy over the letter C...

Nitty out for the start of the season.

Hellz yeah!

Return of the Mack

No show uses music quite as well as Entourage. I haven't been able to get this song out of my head since Sunday night. Luckily, there is a sweet video! If watching this doesn't put a little pimp in your step, I don't know what will.

how rude!!!

So, I got dissed by my former fantasy league, because I am no longer on the email list for a practically defunct blog. Hmph. Anyone out there wanna get one going? I have one set up over at Yahoo if anyone wants to join, or if you have something set up already let me know. It's not like I am married to the idea of being the commissioner, and I am flexible on rosters and scoring. If you wanna try the one I have set up, the ID is 10835 and the password is sid. Heh.

Yahoo Fantasy Sports...
