Yes Florida Panthers. Do the opposite of what you always do. Which is nothing. Although in this case it would be something. Confused? Read on.
But first a public address announcement that’s not brought to you by your South Florida Lexus Dealers.
Hey schmuck! Yea you. Whoever you are that gave me 29 viruses yesterday. You thought you could slow me down? Thought you could beat me? Thought you could prevent me from doing the good work that I do here on the blogosphere?
Hah! I’m up and running. I was up and running yesterday. So schmuckhead, stick it!
Congratulations to the Montreal Canadiens for coming back from being down three games to one and beating the Washington Captials. Never thought that would have happened. Jaroslav Halak deserves all the credit for this one, especially for keeping Alex Semin off the scoreboard. Wow!
Ok, while we’re waiting for the next round of playoffs to begin, here’s some news for ya.
Well how about this Cat fans ? It was reported last night on TSN that the Detroit Red Wings SCUM have given the Tampa Bay Lightning permission to speak to Steve Yzerman about their vacant general manager position. How do you like them apples? You can read the story for the details, but the offices of The Rat Trick had put out a bulletin recently (somewhere) that Stevie Y would be a good choice to replace George Costanza Art Vandelay current Panther GM Randy Sexton.
But our cross state rivals seem to have the upper hand on this one as the call has already been made. Could it happen? Why not. Anything is possible. Although rumors have it that Stevie Y is not a fan of Vincent Lecavalier, so that may play into it, or not. Point is, the call was made and if it happens someone will have beaten us to the punch. That is unless we we’re even thinking about it. Were we? Are we? Oh shit, now what?
Hmmm. Tampa or Florida? Lightning or Panthers? Gulf waters or Atlantic ocean.
Lecavalier, St. Louis, Malone, Hedman, and some kid named Stamkos. Or Horton, Little Stevie (some said he reminded them of Yzerman), Booth, and that overpaid, underachieving Rusty Olesz. Pretty easy decision eh? Yea that Yzerman reference-about as close as me fighting Stu Grimson and winning. Even with both of Stu’s hands tied behind his back.
So while I’m on the Seinfeld kick as it’s apparently getting me some mileage, thanks to our new friends over at Blades of Funny, I’ve prepared and loaded an episode of Seinfeld for you. Watch it. It’s perfect. Tell me George doesn’t make you think of Randy.
Thanks for reading and watching.
