Kings Blank Crap Islanders Team
On throwback night, I thought I was watching the Kings play the California Golden Seals.
So I’ve been waiting for months for the Zappa plays Zappa concert I was going to tonight. Had to sell my tickets to the Kings game, in which I was looking forward to wearing my throwback Alexi Ponikorovsky jersey… but boy this concert would be worth it… only to realize my friend who bought the tickets for TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!
So now I’m pissed.
I come back home to make it in time for the Larry Murphy festivities. Yes, that’s what players who have had 4 days off like. More time waiting to honor some guy who played just THREE YEARS for the Kings. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve golfed with the guy, he’s let me hang out with him in the war room in Toronto… wait… that’s MIKE Murphy… WHY THE FUCK ARE THE KINGS HONORING LARRY MURPHY? Because he played 1600 games? 1406 of them NOT with the Kings? 4 Stanley Cups NOT with the Kings? Who’s next to be honored, Kings leading scorer Vitali Yachmenev? Ray Ferraro?
The Kings started the game like they went out and got drunk on Friday night… again. “Oh, we’re just playing the Islanders.” Yeah, that didn’t work out too well LAST Saturday against Calgary, did it? You know, there ARE fans who can ONLY come out on Saturday night, pay the babysitter, get away from the bullshit they have to deal with all week, and you’re shoutout against Colorado, you lose at home to Calgary and then THIS 1st period?
To my reader Scooty (who is a c u next tuesday): there’s a REASON why I like to bitch about everything.
I hope to God it gets better. My wife just smacked my son for not standing still while she was putting cream on him (written evidence for future divorce) and now all hell has broken loose in my house. I’m watching the 2nd period in the man cave.
“On Thin Ice” – It’s thin.
Oh look, we’re on a power play to start the 2nd… and the Islanders have the best chance.
Did I mention the Islanders have lost 8 games in a row?
When Darryl Sutter said Dwight King was the the Kings best LW, I thought he had turned into a crack whore. Turns out he’s (gulp) right.
Thomas Hickey sucks. Unlike Cammalleri, he did absolutely NOTHING to prove he didn’t belong on the waiver wire.
Is it me or does Islanders coach Jack Capuano look like he was just raped in a Culver City motel room by that woman who got caught blowing Hugh Grant?
7 million dollars for 8 goals. Okay, I guess its worth it. Thanks Anze. (FYI, players that have 8 goals and don’t make 7 million dollars include Brandon Saad, Martin Hanzal, Clarke MacArthur, Chris Higgins and Mika Zibanejad! And add Nick Bonino to that list. That’s right. Nick. Bonino.)
Oh look! A Muzzin penalty! I’m shocked!
Time for Jaeger shots!
They helped. Brown’s beautiful wrap-around lets me play the drums in the man cave.
Empty netter seals the deal.
Congrats to Martin Jones for stopping an amazing 15 shots. [/sarcasm]
Kings hold John Tavares to no points for the 2nd straight game for the 1st time this season. That’s okay, opponents have done that to Trevor Lewis for 30 straight games!
Maybe Tuesday they can possibly, kind of, maybe step it up against Montreal, whom I hate?
Throw the fucking book at Thornton.
If you haven’t seen it. Brooks Orpik FLATTENS the recently concussed Loui Eriksson (keep your damn head up, Loui) and Shawn Thornton tries to bait him (very outmatched) into a fight. 5 minutes later, during a stoppage, Thornton throws Orpik to the ice and PUNCHES HIM IN THE FACE TWICE, knocking him out.
It’s this kind of shit that infuriates the sugar honey iced tea out of me.
For the big deal they make about Darryl Evans’ time with the Kings, he really only played ONE SEASON!
Let me think about this… a Stadium series jersey for 400 bucks or an actual GAME WORN jersey that has actual VALUE in the future? 10 years from now I’ll find one of these “stadium” jersey’s at a yard sale for 40 bucks.
Anyone else think Julie Stewart-Binks does all 3 inputs? I mean this is the most professional way.
So I decided to test the most innovative and stunning tires on the road today… Nitto tires. I took a turn at 100mph and look what happened to me.
