Come on Hawks, let's see if we can get a game won before OT this series.

The problem with playoff hockey on the weekends is that I get absolutely nothing done (at least in the early rounds). I'm glad that I'm off today & can get a couple of things done before parking myself in front of the tv once again.

NYR 2-1 in regulation
PHX 3-2 1OT

Let's see how good my crystal ball skills are....

fark it, I want to see overtime again. I want this series to go to 7 games and I want game 7 to go to double overtime. Whoever wins, I want to see the most closely contested first round series in history.

I'd like to see the Sens advance, but as a Blues fan, man, I don't know if I want Chicago hanging around or Phoenix. I think Nashville will destroy either team, but the Blackhawks stand more of a chance of roughing them up before they get to the Blues in the conference final (assuming the Blues can get past the Kings, natch).

So, Sens and Hawks, I guess.

Here's my hopes:

Rags over Sens (prediction: 3-2 Rags)
'Yotes over Hawks (2-1 OT)

Nothing personal against the Sens - I'd just like a friend to have his team go deep into the playoffs for a change.

..and of course, the more the Coyotes win while under NHL control, the funnier I find it.

I actually disagree. The CBC should get out of professional sports entirely (including the Olympics) and leave that to TSN and CTV. Focus on amateur sports as well as good, quality programming, as per its mandate - what it used to do before the network was dumbed down for a youth audience. Keep the CBC public, though.

netweavr: Can someone explain the Senators mascot/logo to me? Are they just trying to incorporate all of Roman culture or is there a method to the madness?


I never fully understood it. So they are the capital of Canada and they're called Senators, which makes sense. DC had the Washington Senators. But then the whole gladiator thing is where I get confused. I mean, if they're going for the Roman democracy thing, shouldn't their mascot be a guy in a toga?

I called Gonchar scoring the first goal. You didn't see me do it, but I did. That means you all owe me $10.

Yep. Just blasting the pucks at the net from way out there. Lunquist is a good goalie, but he can't stop what he can't see.

The Senators is a stupid, stupid, stupid mascot. It's awful. You may as well be rooting for the Ottawa CEOs, or the Ottawa Tax Attorneys, etc. It's awful.

geom_00: Donnchadha, you are very correct on that fact.

Go Bruins!


Although, if the Caps make it through, and the Sens and Panthers win their game 6's, then it's Flyers/Caps in the next round.

On the bright side, they both can't win, but on the down side, they both can't lose.

According to what I read today, it will be the first time that happened in this current playoff format. But I read it on Twitter so it's probably not true.

I'm loving the blatant homerism on my stream. The announcers were going berserk saying that the Richards slash (which should have been a penalty, granted) was 100% unprovoked and Neil just accidentally ran into him because he was losing an edge. There was a brief call for 10 minute match penalty/attempt to injure before they regained what passes for their sanity.

May be a long time before we see another. Hell, last Canadian team to win was Habs in 93. I'd love to see another take the Cup back home. They had their chances, 3 years in a row in fact with 2 going to Game 7. Ottawa's looking good, but they've got a hell of a task if they're going to be that next team.

It's good. Never had the Rye, just the Bourbon. For only a dollar more than Jack, it's worth it. It's almost identical to Buffalo Trace if you've ever had that.


I've got a half empty bottle of Buffalo Trace at the moment. Bulleit bourbon has more rye content than most bourbons (at least on average), which my wife doesn't enjoy -- she wasn't a fan of Four Roses, but loves Makers since it's no rye and all wheat in it's place. But if it's similar to Buffalo Trace, perhaps I can convince her to give it a try.

Granted, I also like my bourbon with an ice cube and she likes making cocktails

Buffalo Trace is very nice indeed. I like both wheaters and rye-based bourbons, in any case.

Did not know about the rye content. I usually end up either drinking it on the rocks when I watch westerns or mixing it with coke or ginger ale for hockey.

Tomorrow, I have to stay after for a quiz bowl competition. I should be home in time for the Devils' game.
Wednesday, I have a bonus quiz bowl practice and then a concert at my school
Thursday, I'm giving a sample lesson (basically audition for a full-time position) and then... quiz bowl practice. Then tutoring, so I won't be home until something like 8:30 or 9.
Then Friday, I travel with the quiz bowl team to Washington, DC for a national competition. Hence all the practices this week.
Oh yeah and I have some 70 practice AP Calculus tests to grade, so that my students (and I) know whether they're going to bomb the actual exam.

That reminds me of a column Jeremy Clarkson wrote a couple years ago where he proposed that in order to cut down on diving in soccer any player that couldn't stand on his own within a certain amount of time should be put down on the pitch. That like in horse racing, it is the only humane thing to do.

nah... it's crap like usual.

Wrestling was the only "time gap" i had on fark until the playoffs.

but the missus enjoyed letting brain melt on mondays and a random streaming PPV on the HTPC once a month on Sundays as she did work at home.

so no complaints here... we both know it sucks.. but i'd rather watch it than anything else on TV.

Find a place that lets you take growlers of your favorite brew of theirs home, pop the top when the first game starts, DRINK!

A growler is a little more than a half gallon (so, smaller than a keglet), but a good local brew pub will likely have beers in e 12%+ abv so you can still get good and drunk off of it.

i chill with the missus... we throw it on...; interact with some farkers... play some Draw Something... drink a bit... then when it hits the point of "shiatty suck suck" we just put something else on or throw on an episode of "Sunny in Philly" or "Home Movies" and it's just a relaxing night.
