And we go to Boston next?

This is change I can't believe in.

But hey, at least the Hawks don't suck!

(our Hawks. not Chicago's Hawks. screw Chicago)

Mortimer Peacock said...

Yeah, I'm definitely glad the Hawks are doing well. And what's good for the Hawks is good for the Thrashers, of course.

Got to get myself to a Hawks game at some point soon...

Sheet we looosse agayne!

Mr. Speaker said...

Yes Mr. Sourdough, our play has been smelling like rotten, sour dough balls of late. Pass the mutton please!

Mutton Sourdough said...

Mr. Speaker: I unfortunately ate the last of it. I'll have Chef! bring some more at once.

Thwashews special teams of late can be remind me of the following:

+18 for the Abbot and Costello. Do stick around, Mr. Sourdough.

Razor Catch Prey said...

The Thrashers' play of late has me feeling a lot like folks did in 1979. We need to beat the Russians and elect Ronald Reagan to get out of this malaise.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Sigh, you people do love your 1979/1980 analogies. I'm more of an 1848 man myself.

Mortimer Peacock said...

You know, now that I think about it, the malaise could be broken by calling up Chris Chelios and re-signing Mathieu Schneider. See the post above.

ALSO: Though I'm no ideological comrade of theirs, I think the Thrashers could benefit from the hockey equivalent of the Maggie Thatcher half of the Reagan-Thatcher duo. They need a frightening old lady to bash them upside the head with a purse, not an affably crazy uncle that speaks entirely in movie quotations.

Mr. Speaker said...

I believe Madeline Albright is available or is she too SOFT??

1848? You going Missouri Compromise on our asses? What election was that? Polk over Douglas or something? Seemed like Douglas ran every year for like 20 years for something.

I'd rather have an exhumed Ronald Reagan than a despotic Chaney or soft, neo-socialist populist like Obama-lama-ding-dong!

Go figure...a 1 line entry gets 10 comments...Morty is da MAN!

1. It's not really an example from American history. I've always been partial to the lost ideals of the '48 non-commie insurrections that broke out all over Europe.

2. I might take an exhumed Reagan as well, because a dead guy (presumably) can't do as much damage as living politicians. THOUGH I must say the Repubs do suffer from an ahistorical and sentimental Reagan nostalgia not unlike the way the Democrats used to idealize FDR and (far more ridiculously) JFK. That's not to say that all three of them didn't do some good and great things, but it's not terribly helpful in terms of dealing with present-day problems at the end of this dumb, horrible, nameless decade.

3. Only in the loosest terms could Barry be considered a "neo-socialist." He's no more socialist, neo or otherwise, than Dwight Eisenhower or Richard Nixon.

4. Your last sentence is absolutely true.

Mr. Speaker said...

Who is Barry? How'd we get on to the topic of Barry Goldwater? ;-)

One of these days, we should have a bivoauc over beers to discuss historical events of the 19th C and beyond rather than depress ourselves with things like:

a) how to fix the Thrashers
b) what to do with Kovalchuk
c) how to pick up a 7 - 10 split

Ronald Reagan said...

Well, Morty...There you go again...

Mutton Sourdough said...

Mr. Speaker - With the residents' permission, I will stick around. I, along with others, am thoroughly enjoying the Ten Gallon Dick Saga. Loved the coyote! Epic fellas, simply epic.

Mortimer Peacock - Right. Because quite a few people around here already have the crazy and speak-in-movie-quotations part covered. And I'm sure someone here is an uncle, so the Raegan half is already taken kyeer of.

Jay said...

Um, Razor, I really don't want to beat the Russians considering half of our team is Russian. What kind of masochist are you?!?!?! It's also looking like our Ten Gallon Dick is running about a quarter full. Pavelec is also looking a bit spent right now. No defense will do that to a goalie. What, wait, OH MY GOD! Is that Kari Lehtonen's music?!?!?
