Today’s music selection on New Releases Thursday is Chasin Cars by The Baseballs. A band out of Germany with their version of the Snow Patrol song.
If game one is any indication of how the rest of the series is going to go, I want someone to poke me in the eyes. It hurt to watch as it seemed as though the officials wanted to control play rather than let the players. It was drama filled and I’m not referring to scoring chances either. Diving, biting, and curling up like a bunch of scared little kids. And that’s just Vancouver. That’s what we saw for 40 minutes. These are the two best teams that are left from the 16 that started the playoffs? Forgive me if I am not thrilled with this match since I have no one to root for, but I’m going to lose interest in this real soon. Doc Emerick who I enjoy listening to had to work really hard to make the game appear interesting. There was a breakaway during the game that might have provided some excitement. Victor Oreskovich a former Florida Panther who couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat, was stopped by Tim Thomas.…….
I’m going to describe to you the entire third period and how the Boston Bruins lost. Raffi Torres scored with 18 seconds left.
