Random Thoughts

It has been a really long time since I have posted. To the two of you that missed me, please accept my sincerest apologies. Your ole pal Big Shooter has been working hard trying to keep the lights turned on in this down right disgusting economy (to anyone else who is in the land business like myself, I FEEL your pain!). According to the Dems, we can't afford another four years of Bush/McCain... I'm sorry, I didn't realize McCain spent the last 8 years as VP! Vote for whoever you want to folks, just don't vote against McCain because they are trying to lump him in with that idiot Bush. MCCAIN IS NOT BUSH!!!

Sorry, I momentarily forgot this is a hockey blog. As Frenchy pointed out, Pop has gone to gr$$ner pastures in Russia. Good for him. Although if I were a GM I wouldn't offer him more than a two way deal. Also, as Frenchy pointed out, we don't care too much about football. For more reading, Knobler gives his views on the "other" Ilya.

Not much else is going on folks. Ah, August. We have almost made it through this most horrible of months. We still have to hear from Sundin, Sakic, Shanahan, Selanne (what is it with the S's?), and Chelios. Hopefully some news will trickle in to keep us busy until training camp.

Until next time, enjoy this Coach's Corner Classic:

McCain isn't Bush, but the foreign policy team he's surrounded himself with is every bit as ridiculous as the ideologues who've led us for the last eight years. In fact, many of them are the exact same people.

I don't think a war with Russia and Iran and China is particularly wise. Or very conservative, come to that.

That said, I have to vent a little about the Democratic Convention. With the exception of Michelle Obama and about 1/3 of Hillary's speech, it's been a bland yawn-a-thon so far. I want more attacks on the Bush-Cheney regime. Maybe Jumbo Joe Biden will take the gloves off tomorrow night.

I MEAN, LISTENING TO NON-ENTITIES LIKE MARK WARNER (nice guy, I'm sure, and seems like a capable executive, just lacks anything resembling panache or style) YOU'D NEVER KNOW WE'VE BEEN RULED BY BILL OF RIGHTS-SHREDDING THUGS FOR EIGHT YEARS!!!

god god dammit.

Sorry. I hate all-CAPS posts as well. I realize my sins.

I did not realise you were away, but had I, I would have missed you!

Thanks... I guess!
