Stupid Sexy Maple Leafs. Can't complete Elimination Day and have to have their miracle comeback.

Philly-Bolts is the premiere game. Flyers scare me.
 
2020-08-08 9:06:59 AM  
TWO?!? Only TWO games?

Crap, I might actually have to be productive around here today & we just can't have that now can we?

(and looking at my above fussing ... it only took a week of hockey to get spoiled/forget the spring & lack thereof...)
 
2020-08-08 9:24:58 AM  
The weekend is here but only two games? They're just taunting the folks who've been off working.

Registration is open now for the Bracket Challenge.. Can't do the brackets yet... SOON.. But you can register and get organized, when to fill out your bracket will be after the play-in round and the seeding round robin and Leafs/Jackets is/are done on Sunday and up to the first round of 16 puck drop **a small(ish) window.**
Anyway, I've re-up'd the "Goon Juice Aficionados" league..  password "Fark234" to join here:
https://bracketchallenge.nhl.com/leag​u​es/goon-juice-aficionados
You will also need an NHL.com ID, *fill our your bio first or be among the Undifined* and because domains, sign in in both places if/when you create a new account.

Also
Special Agent has done a league with the same name and password at the Hat Trick Challenge, we're already a week in over there, but if past years are any indication a few good days of picks will have you right in the running. make sure you get your picks done before first broadcast starts, the questions lock with the start of the broadcast to do with that question, already missed 2 points with that myself.
Here for HTC: https://hattrick.nhl.com/#/league/2942 which you will have to copy pasta because [hashtag] reasons.

Still a little stunned by that comeback last night and was a little over lubricated in anticipation of the worst.. might try to get a nap or two in before the first game.. Also tough to get jazzed about any of the four today, but GO CAPS & BLUES I guess.
 
2020-08-08 10:20:05 AM  
Blues tomorrow. Avs today..

I thought the round-robin would be dumb. It's cool it's worked out this way.
 
2020-08-08 1:37:53 PM  
alright, enough time to go run out for a couple groceries and lunch before drinking time is yes
 
2020-08-08 1:42:23 PM  
A Golden Knights-Coyotes first round series would be kinda cool. It could lead to that "desert rivalry" thing the NHL was hoping to grow. Just in time for the Coyotes to move out of the division.

/okay, maybe not just in time, but you get the idea.

Believe me, you're not the first person to say that. But I have Vegas taking this so they get Chicago while the Coyotes get the Avs. That would be slightly awkward for me as I'm a Coyotes fan who now lives in Denver.
 
2020-08-08 2:42:41 PM  
After last night's debacle, Jackets getting in is at best a tossup. Gotta believe the momentum is with the Leafs.

I have the Avs and Bolts in the Final. Thinking my Blues will be lucky to get out of the first round.

So I think I know how that Oiler 50/50 got so out of shape... glitchy ordering software told people their order didn't go though, so they'd do it a second, third, fourth time... Then the confirmation e-mails start piling in.

Oh boy. That's a disaster. I'll bet some people have duplicate tickets and that it's so bad, they'd probably have to cancel the whole raffle.

Lots only wanted [whatever number of] tickets and want a refund on the multiple extras.. which messes with the total money pool, and how do you sort out which extra tickets are no longer part of the pool... I think canceling it and refunding everyone is the only thing they can do fairly.

lol... had the sound down cause I'm not a big fan of the Hewson/Simpson game call and was kinda loudly woohoo-ing anyway so missed it, but Hewson botched the game winning ot call saying it was scored by Kasperi Kappanen(!) Simpson whispers "Matthews" right after.. lmao
