The Pronger strikes again!!

This time it was Baby Pronger! His presence on a hockey card sent the Flyers into OT and an eventual loss!!! That's right, Soph and Jess brought me more gifts at the last Flyers game, including a Pronger card in which he isn't even a douchebag yet, and a Sexy Kovy card which I may or may not have kissed. (But I didn't lick it!!!)

As sad as the game was, and as happy as the gifts were, nothing compared to this:

(It's Michael Leighton, for those of you who aren't stalking him...)

And for those of you who are into Eric Staal, there is this:

That's weird. Flyers don't suck?

This is like the only picture I've taken this season. Lugging camera gear to a game SUCKS!

I was surprised earlier today when I checked the standings...they've gone 6-3-1 in their last 10. So why do I feel like I want to jump off a bridge after every game?

1. They pretty much play like crap. They haven't played 3 full periods of hockey in any of the games I have seen (keeping in mind that I don't watch Devils games...).

2. Perhaps my expectations were too high coming off last year's post season?

3. I just can't handle the ups and downs of following a professional sports team.

I dunno, but even when they have a decent lead, it feels like they are behind...

Also, regarding Kovy's hit on Gagne: Um, yeah, not cool Kovalev, not cool. I know you want to hurdle over The Pronger to be number one on my list, but that's really not the way to do it. I do still love you though. Just work on the hair. And score some PP goals. You're killing my fantasy teams. (except for one, and we all know which one that is...)

Next up: Sexy Kovy and the Habs

Is it wrong to love him?

The Flyers get their passports in order and head up to Montreal Saturday. Poor Habs got crushed last night by the Broons...and Boston had freaking Fernandez in net. Ouch! They'll be looking to get back to their winning ways against the lowly Flyers.

Kovy better start growing his hair back again, because so far this year, his stats are not all that. He's killing my fantasy team! Cmon...Alexei Ponikarovsky has as many points as Kovy! Sheesh. Get it together you sexy bitch!

For a world class preview of the game, check out Four Habs Fans. Always funny, always disturbing. There's also The Notwithstanding Clause, which FHF highly recommends.

I'm starting to enjoy the Flyers being in the expectations, I don't have to hurry to watch the games, I don't have to wonder what the outcome will be. It's very liberating!

Also, it's time to start the John Stevens Firing watch. How many days til he's gone? Is he gone by Thanksgiving or does he make it to Christmas?

Kukkonen on waivers??

But didn't he just play tonight? Interesting news for those of you on the Shanahan watch...

This was a good excuse for me to post an old picture of Gator and Kooky...

What do I have in common with Jean-Claude Van Damme?

We both fucking hate Iceburgh. Yeah, that's right, I took a picture of my tv...

another fun fact...

Michael Leighton has more wins than Marty Biron.

Not good, not good

The Atlanta Thrashers have more wins than we do.

Every team in the Western Conference, including the Kings, has more wins than we do.

The St Louis Blues have the same amount of points as us!

This is starting to feel a lot like the season that shall not be named....

The number 25

Good news! Matt Carle has been assigned the number 25, so maybe he won't suck like those who have worn the number 26. Seriously, if they gave him 26, I was gonna jump.

Dear Flyers, please stop sucking or I am switching teams. There are other teams to choose from, you know! Just to show you how serious I am about switching, check this out:

Don't make me keep posting Pronger pics until you stop sucking!

I love Dwayne Roloson!

Okay, I don't love him like that. But I love watching him play. His goaltending style is very um...interactive, and gave me something to take my mind of the suckfest that was today's game.

Really, the highlight of the game was meeting Soph and Jess. They cleverly lured me out during the second intermission with the promise of a hockey card they brought for me. Naturally, I couldn't resist!

They were easy to find, because they are so darn cute!! Cute as buttons! So cute that I even had to give them each a hug, and I'm not really the hugging type!! We chatted for a bit, discussing the merits of fan based feedback in the dressing room during intermission. We wondered if fans thought that the Flyers hearing things like "Shoot the fucking puck" and "you suck" would be valuable to the team's performance going forward. We doubted that it would help, although we're sure it won't stop anyone.

Anyhow, here is the super awesome card they brought me, showcasing my two favorite players: The Pronger and Gator. On the same card!!!!

Thanks ladies, for brightening an otherwise dull gameday!

Also Soph, sorry for kicking your team's ass this week in our fantasty league!! But really, you may want to try and pick up another starting goalie! Leighton doesn't get many starts!! Drop Gator, because he doesn't get you any points, and pick up Joey MacDonald or Alex Auld. Since DiPietro is gonna be out for a bit, MacDonald will be getting a lot of starts.
