Last week we did the old Hump Day Survey...This week we're switching it up, because I don't have too many questions to ask...But I do have a couple topics I want to hit...Yep, the kid has some shit to rant about...(SHOCKER!)
First, Monday I was bitching about Indians closer Chris Perez ripping Clevelanders for not packing the stadium for Indians games...Oh, and he ripped them for booing him, after blowing a game, and booing him when he put two runners on base his next time out...Asshole needs to grow up...Pro athletes get booed when they fuck up...Stupid fucking child! Asshole making $5 million a year telling me how to spend my money...I've been working since I was 13 years old, and I'll never come close to making $5 million in my life...Unless my writing career some how takes off! So Perez can still lick my ass!
Then today, I hear this douche on Cleveland sports talk, Chuck Booms, bitching at the fans, saying they better fill the seats for this series against the Tigers...After he bitches for a few minutes, his partner Kevin Kiley, who often annoys me, called him out, and asked Booms, "How many tickets have you bought?" Booms starts yelling, "I don't have to, I'm in the media, we get in free!"
So this little, shit is going to scream at Clevelanders to spend their money on the Tribe, but are you crazy? Why would he? He's in the Media...Bitching on the radio makes him part of the media and gives him free tickets whenever he wants...Well shit, I bitch on my blog, where the fuck are my free tickets? Here's another fucking asshole, telling the regular folks what to do with their money...These cock suckers have some balls...And if you ever listen to Booms, you can here he is a closet case, boner smoker...
If I go to a Tribe game, I gotta pay $20 to park my car...Then the cheapest seats in the house are $10...And let me tell you, I don't feel like sitting in the bleachers or nose-bleeds...Then if I want a beer, that's $8...A fucking hot dog is $6...Everything there food wise is grossly overpriced...Then if it's just me and the wife, we have to pay a baby-sitter...And when you're talking 3 kids, that shit gets expensive...If we bring the kids, that costs, and gives us a fucking headache...
But this little asshole who goes to games free, is going to tell me what to do with my money...He really needs to choke on a cock and die!
The next thing pissing me off is the Phoenix Coyotes management...More than a few years ago, the NHL switched what jersey was worn at home...It use to be the white...But they switched it to the dark jersey...So the Coyotes look really stupid when they tell their fans to do the old "white out" thing, and all wear white...The LA Kings are skating around the ice wearing their whites, and the Coyotes are in all maroon...The league has let teams wear white at home at times...So if the Coyotes wanted to do a "white out" why not get the team on board too...Way to make people think they are watching the kings play in front of their home crowd...Stupid fucking Phoenix...They could have broken out their old black jerseys, and done a "Black out." Maybe this seems gay, but it just looks stupid...
Since we were just talking Hockey, let close with some hockey hotties...On this Hump Day, which of these Hockey wives would you must like to do some stick-handling with!?!
A. As seen at the top of this post, Willa Ford (Mike Modano)
B. Hilary Duff (Mike Comrie)
And just remember how she handled getting engaged...
Then I would definitely be tuning in. But as it stands right now, I won’t be watching. Not only because of a general lack of interest, but I will be out of town for the weekend on a nice little getaway with a lady friend. Sorry, but hockey is taking a backseat to extra curricular activities. Thanks to Sully for posting this for me in my absence.
Remember the saga in the desert? Bettman and the NHL gave a hard deadline of December 31st 2010 for a deal to get done between the NHL, Hulsizer and the City of Glendale. As it stands now, we are approaching the end of January and a deal is still not completed. To the best of my knowledge, the City of Glendale was going to sell $100 in municipal bonds, transfer the money to Hulsizer, and then recoup the money in parking fees. Hulszier was going to throw in $97 million of his own money to cover the rest of the purchase. As it turns out, the bond market isn’t that great right now and the City of Glendale couldn’t get approval for the bonds. That’s right…your math isn’t wrong. Bettman and the NHL bought the Coyotes for $150 million and are now selling them for $197 million. Wow, to be able to make that much money that quickly on a fledgling team in a non-hockey market is remarkable. The only reason that the price is higher is that Bettman promised the NHL owners that they would not lose money on this deal. Seeing as how the ‘Yotes are hemorrhaging $25 million a year, they could get nervous and want a deal done sooner than later.
Bettman has another group based out of Winnipeg that is interested in purchasing the Coyotes. That being said, Bettman appears that he was using this potential buyer as leverage, since he told the City of Glendale that if a deal wasn’t in place by the end of December, the sale is off. However, one month later, there is still no deal.
After being selected in the 6th round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft, Craig Conroy has played 1009 games for 4 NHL teams. Earlier this week, Craig Conroy was placed on waivers by the Flames and is now considering retiring. The Flames gave Conroy 2 options; report to their AHL affiliate and play out the remainder of his one-year contract, or retire. They have given Conroy until the end of the All Star Festivities to make his decision. As I am typing this up on Wednesday night, Craig is scheduled to make a decision on his future on Thursday. Even though I am not a Flames, Blues, Kings or Canadiens fan, I was a fan of Conroy and how he played the game. But lets get serious here…Calgary is a little bit on the fucked side right now and may not even make the playoffs. After GM Darryl Sutter stepping down and Jay Feaster taking over as the interim GM, the Flames organization seems to be in a scramble mode to secure a post season berth. By the way…wasn’t it Feaster that put Andreychuk on waivers and ended his career?
What in the fuck is Garth Snow thinking? Why would he take Nabakov off of waivers, a couple of weeks after he moved Roloson to Tampa? There is only one thing that make sense with this. Maybe Snow was stocking up for trade deadline day. For all we know, there could be a few teams that are interested in a goalie that hates playing in the month of May. Nabakov may have thought that it was in his best interest to just pull a no show on the Islanders. Who the fuck is he all of a sudden? Eric Lindros? Just be happy someone offered you a job you fuckstick! So now, will Garth Snow petition the NHL and force Nabakov to fulfill his deal? The Islanders are currently playing for a lottery pick. Why the fuck would Snow try to screw that up? This signing made absolutely no sense to me, but then again, I don’t pretend to know everything. I leave that up to Brian Burke.
Every year around this time, we get inundated with Forsberg updates. Is he going to make a comeback? Why is he skating again? Fuck it…who cares. I’m not even going to bother wasting time on him…he’ll only cancel his comeback anyways.
Many of you may be wondering who this guy is. Well, his name is Richard Rodier and he is going to be the next pain in Bettmans ass. Rodier’s previous high profile gig was working as Jim Balsillies lawyer during the whole Phoenix Coyotes schmozzle. Now, Rodier is now a lawyer for the NHLPA as well as their economic consultant. It looks as though the PA is getting ready for a nasty round of negotiations.
Time for a little bit of entertainment from the LNAH.
It’s gotta be hard pulling off a hockey stick guitar solo with three other guys in the penalty box with you. Now, I know very little about playing a guitar, but I think he should have tuned his hockey stick before he started playing, not after.
Fight of the week:
Shawn Thornton vs Kyle Clifford
Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Sully for posting for me…yet again…Thanks Sully.
