I knew it was going to be a bad day when it took me over an hour to get from Woodland Hills through the 405 just so I could take the train filled with wino’s and derelicts because of the wonderful TAP system L.A. implemented to combat life’s little maggots from properly paying their fares.
I knew it was going to be a bad day when the Yard House, which has over 600 beers had neither my Bass Ale or Killians Red (what are the ODDS?)
I know it was going to be a bad day when the bar at Staples also didn’t have any Bass Ale.
Who do I have to fuck to get a Bass Ale? That lady on the cover of my last blog?
The Maple Laughs are a team that gave up a 2 goal lead in the 7th game of the playoffs against Boston with 90 seconds left and LOST.
I predicted to Surly (from Surly and Scribe fame) before the game (we were both intoxicating ourselves trying to get into the mindset of a Canadian) that Gaborik would pot a hat-trick tonight. Gabby made me look like Karnac the Magnificent early in the game with his very first goal as a King. The Kings even scored on a power play and suddenly I wasn’t caring that I was drinking something Budweiser invented to fool you into thinking it wasn’t urine.
But then the CANADIAN referee… let me repeat that…. the CANADIAN referee, Justin St. Pierre decided to call invisible penalties. Nick Nickson on air said, “I’ve seen a lot of penalties in my time, but that was nowhere near a penalty on Jake Muzzin.” I like to pick on Muzz much like one picks on that stupid co-worker who never washes his hands after doing number two, but this one sucked worse that a Pasadena massage parlor madam.
Quick is entitled to a bad game every now and then and this one happened to be the “then”. You know, the one where he was up against the guy they decided NOT to keep! I guess when Bernier got a little boo-boo and couldn’t start the 2nd period, Quick relaxed and fell asleep (much like I do when I hear Bon Iver’s music)
The last time James Reimer played hockey he was about as effective as Toronto Mayor Rob Ford after a drinking contest. San Jose lit him up like a Justin Bieber charter flight. (proof there is no God. They can’t find a Malaysian airliner but Bieber constantly lands safely)
So while on a power play (on a terrible call courtesy Mr. Pierre) Kopitar looked to the heavens as he missed a wide open net even Trevor Lewis could have hit and the Maple Leafs went down the ice and scored what proved to be the game winner SHORTHANDED ending the Kings winning streak. That’s about the time I stole every Jim Fox bobble head I could find from standing Maple Leafs fans.
Listen, I never expected the Kings to go 28-0 following the Olympic break, but to lose to Mr. Cuthbert and Mayson Raymond?
I guess if I look on the bright side, Darryl Sutter was pissed off basically saying the power play sucked and so did Dustin Brown whom Sutter BENCHED because his line was “tired”. Tired? Dustin Brown is about to make SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS next season and he’s TIRED? What Captian do you know gets BENCHED? Crosby? Getzlaf? Thornton? Dustin Brown was BENCHED! Too many kids, man. Too many kids.
The Jim Fox tribute was nice but those guys who sang both national anthems should be sent to the glue factory immediately.
To Irish Pat’s friend – thanks for coming by and saying hello. Really cool of you.
San Jose won! Come on, boys! Keep winning! I want the Ducks in the 1st round!!!
The Kings are now 0-1 when Gaborik scores a goal.
There was a time the Kings were undefeated in 11 straight (12?) wearing their purple jersey’s. Not any more.
