Status Update

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Wow I really fail at keeping up with this blog.  I got a gig writing over at Flame For Thought and running Too Many Men On The Site, and editing Up The Pucks’ blog and I’ve abandoned this site.  Which is unfortunate, because I really enjoyed writing for me.

You’ll see some changes, most notably the format, I want something easier to read.  I’ll probably distance myself away from writing about the Flames and punk, you can find that work elsewhere.  And I’ll spend my time writing about who knows what.  Something strange and off beat like I try to be.

I’m coming back because I checked the logs and they were crazy high, despite the fact that I haven’t written something since November and who doesn’t need another hockey blog?

I guess that’s it for this post, I feel odd starting talking about hockey in this status update post.


Day Twenty Seven: New Jersey Devils, Two Jabs At Their Attendance & One At Fatso

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Day Twenty Seven: New Jersey Devils
Current Goalie: Martin Brodeur
Current Captain: Zach Parise
Current Assistant Captain: Ilya Kovalchuk

Ha! Devils, you guys, what an awful franchise.  I can go see you kids play for next to nothing and have The Rock basically to myself, allowing me too root for whatever team you’re playing without fear of being heckled.  It’s great!  When they were rumored to be moved to Nashville a few years back, I was bummed but YAY JUST RUMORS!

Day Twenty Six: Colorado Avalanche & Thriller

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Day Twenty Six: Colorado Avalanche
Current Goalie: Semyon Varlamov
Current Captain: Milan Hejduk
Current Assistant Captain: Paul Stastny

I’ve been enjoying this slow downward spiral of the Avalanche, really helps the Flames look not so sad. Although I’d really like Duchene to pick it up a little bit, he’s on my fantasy team and well it’d be nice to pick up the points he should be producing.

Edmonton Oilers & Something Yeah

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Day Something Somethng: Edmonton Oilers
Current Goaile: Nikolai Khabibulin
Current Captain: Shawn Horcoff
Current Assistant Captain: Ales Hemsky, Ryan Whitney

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OILERS!  I don’t like The Kid Line, I don’t swoon over the youth of this team, the fact that Khabi is pulling it off does not impress me, and I can’t wait to see them return to their rightful place at the bottom of the Western Conference.

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Day Twenty-Four: Minnesota Wild
Current Goalie: Niklas Backstrom
Current Captain: Mikko Koivu
Current Assistant Captain: Matt Cullen, Dany Heatley, Nick Schultz

Hey so they are off to a 13 and 6 start I think right?   Eh, they started the same way last year and didn’t do so hot in the latter half.

Yesterday was a holiday so today will get two teams.

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Day Twenty Two: San Jose Sharks
Current Goalie: Antti Niemi
Current Captain: Joe Thornton
Current Assistant Captain: Ryan Clowe, Patrick Marleau, Dan Boyle

Sooooo the Sharks and I were not cool, but I really had no major problems outside of my odd dislike of California teams, but after some comments made by your captain….

Don’t mess with Torts!

Day Twenty One: Columbus Blue Jackets & My Vinny Love Under Control

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Day Twenty-One: Columbus Blue Jackets
Current Goalie: Steve Mason
Current Captain: Rick Nash
Current Assistant Captain: Jeff Carter, RJ Umberger, Antoine Vermette, James Wisniewski

Ugh this is so icky right now to talk about the Jackets as they play the Flames.  And I really want to talk about Vinny Prospal, but I’m pretty sure I flood twitter enough with my Vinny love.  So I’m not, here’s some videos instead!

Day Twenty: LA Kings & Some Robitaille Love

Sunday, November 20th, 2011


Day Twenty: LA Kings
Current Goalie: Johnathan Quick
Current Captain: Dustin Brown
Current Assistant Captains: Anze Kopitar, Matt Greene

Another California team, which means I don’t like them very much. BUT! Out of all the California teams, I hate them the least, so yay for that?   Why did they get rid of the purple?  Don’t they know that’s the color of royalty?  The black and silver is a cool look, but not one for the Kings.  Please correct this error, thank you!
