When Am I Gonna Get Excited?
Hockey Fest starts in less than 2 weeks. I’ve been to a few of them. Some were good (former players game worn jersey’s for 100 bucks), some were bad (100 degree heat one year) and basically it looks like everyone has a good time. I stopped going years ago because… what’s the point? I save the money for golf lessons and for fees to run this wonderfully designed website.
I won’t be going this year. The town hall meeting includes Rob Blake and every time his name is announced my sense memory causes me to boo.
Meeting the newest members of the Kings doesn’t excite me either. Ben Scrivens, Daniel Carcillo, Matt Frattin and Jeff Schultz. I do know one thing for sure. I’ll be the first person to buy their game worn jersey’s when they’re released, traded or sent to Manchester.
I’ve never bought an Ice Crew Calendar and I probably never will. I’m sure these ladies are very talented, but I just don’t find them that attractive. I’ll stick to Nina Agdal in Sports Illustrated.
I guess one question I would have at the town hall meeting is, “How does it feel letting Jamie Kompon go, only to have him win another cup?” – Even Rob Blake would boo ME.
I’ve never been a Bailey’s Buddy either. What exactly do you GET?
Kings rookies vs Ducks rookies – Now THIS I’ve always loved. Watching two cross town rivals begin their hatred of each other. There’s usually some good scrums – this should be a blast come September 9th. I won’t be there. I’ll be making a lot of money that night that my wife is sure to spend on shoes.
Frozen Fury – My philosophy has always been, “I don’t want to party with these people in L.A., why would I spend money to do it in Las Vegas.” – Two of my “girl friends” (that’s girl FRIENDS honey!) are having their 21st birthdays in Vegas in September and October respectively and I think I’d rather be with a bunch of giggling girls than a bunch of drunken idiots. The fights between L.A. and N.Y. fans may be the ONLY reason to go. There’s nothing like brass knuckles hitting skull. That sound is just so cringing.
Who knows. After reading this, the old lady might just get pissed off and try and play that reverse psychology game of, “Go ahead honey! Do what you want” and I’ll take her up on it. I might be enjoying the couch after that, but read what I wrote. 21 year old giggling girls.
I’m looking forward to seeing Columbus and the Red Wings in the East. It’ll be like that first day in High School where you THINK you’re king shit, but quickly find yourself stuffed into a locker and sent home trying not to cry on your bike which now has no seat and two flat tires.
I don’t know about you but I put most of my Stanley Cup Champion stuff in a box and stuck it in the garage for the next 25 years. There’s just something very nerd bomber about wearing gear saying “WE WIN” when it was two seasons ago. Oh, wait. I still have a jacket. I’ll probably wear that, because, well, I’m a nerd bomber.
How come Red Wings fans can never answer these 2 questions:
1) Who was the captain before Yzerman
2) Who was the coach BEFORE Scotty Bowman
