Game Day: Washington Ovechkins



Nothing like a good test right after breaking a long losing streak. Our boys will have to play a lot better than they did on Thursday night to come away with a W in this one.

Oh, and speaking of Thursday night, if you have that game on Tivo, you can see some nice shots of Big Shooter and myself in the stands near the Zamboni entrance. We're both wearing Team USA jersies. The best shot is over the shoulder of Erik Christensen as he gets ready to take his turn in the shootout.

Is this the night we finally see Kovy fight Ovy?

Or at least Erskine and Boulton/Thorburn.

I just realized I didnt see the whole picture you put up. Freakin hilarious!

The d-bag who runs HockeyBuzz says there's a "major push" being made over the weekend to get a deal done with Kovalchuk.

Whatever the hell that means. Eklund, you're freakin' worthless.

GO THRASHERS!!!?!!!?!#$!

Has Eklund EVER been right about any of his supposed "scoops"?

Jared said...

Well according to Hockeybuzz Hogwash, he's been right on approximately 3.1% of his rumors from 1/1/08 to 5/31/09 :-P

Jared-statistically what would be the odds of a blind squirrel finding a nut? Surely greater than 3.1%. That's just an unbelievable stat, how the hell does this guy get the attention he does? Certainly not from being right or "in the know". Man, what a Tool.

GoPuckYourself said...

Speaking of tools, we're down 4-0 right now.

Wayne stuck in AL said...

....And I thought I had a good night....

Props to Landon Donovan for showing up against Arsenal and playing well. Watched most of the match, and he was carrying David Moyes's team for a good part of it.

At least Liverpool's match got postponed this weekend, so at least we didn't lose 8-1 to Spurs (which will inevitably happen if Rafa continues with zonal marking, but I digress.)

OH YEAH! HOCKEY!

Yeah, we SUCK. That's about all there is to say. You can sugarcoat it and say things about shots on goal...but when you lose 8-1, there is no sugarcoating where this team's at right now.

Big Shooter said...

And that kids, is why Big Shooter drove Morty home tonight!

After driving a combined seven hours to get to Atlanta and back home to Hinesville, GA(by Ft. Stewart for those who might be curious) and taking my wife and both of my kids, while spending the cost of tickets, food, and gas, I want to drink a gallon of kerosene and light a fucking match after watching the absolutely fucking pathetic effort that this team put up tonight. If the Thrashers lose, well, that happens. I just want a good effort from them for putting all of my effort into seeing them. Kovalchuk is the capatain of this team and he is supposed to lead by example. He sure is. This team plays no fucking defense, puck handles horribly, and shows no heart. It's become obvious that Kovy has mailed his time with the Thrashers in. He is not worth what he wants. A telling sign tonight for me was when the scoreboard showed that Alex Ovechkin was +22 on the season, 2nd in the league. Where is Kovalchuk? Not even in the fucking neighborhood of a plus rating. Everybody says that if Kovalchuk leaves they might as well lock the doors to Philips. I say HELL NO. Buffalo, Nashville, Minnesota, and Montreal have proven that you can win and compete without what is considered a "superstar". If the Thrashers win, people in Atlanta will show up regardless of who is wearing the uniforms. I'm just sick and tired of watching a team I KNOW has the talent to compete for the playoffs giving a half-assed effort. My five year old summed tonight up best when after the final horn sounded he turns to me and says, "Well this game sucked."

Jay said...

Oh, and to make things worse, we were sitting two rows in front of some hulking woman who looked like Kelly Osbourne with no class who kept yelling obscenities at the Thrashers and was so pissed at Todd White it almost made me think he slept with her sister or something. Just a fucking horrible night.

Kovy-let Fraudell know where you want to be traded and don't let the door hit you on the fucking ass on the way out!! How many fucking chances did he wiff on last night? Watching him spin around looking for the puck in his ankles was just sad. Trade him NOW cause he AIN'T worth the money.

GoPuckYourself said...

Boy the Thrashers sure know how to go into Casino Night, don't they? Is anybody going to that thing?

I'm sure the mood in the room isn't exactly going to be jovial and light-hearted with the massive amounts of dong this team's been sucking lately.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Jay-

I laughed heartily at your comments. Comedy in misery. We all feel it.

GPY-

No one from the Chronicle is going, though Mr. Speaker and his belle K-Belle are going. I bet you're right about the atmosphere; it's going to be rough.

Mr. Speaker said...

Yeah, my stupid ass is going along with my g/friend. We hope to meet and spend time with Marty, Bryan and Ricky Pevs. I'll try to slip some illicit drinks to Evander since he's only 18. How in the world is he going to survive such humiliation without alcohol??

Morty, if you ever wake up, you may want to edit some of your drunk ramblings my friend. Although I did laugh out loud hysterically when I read the part about the Olympics "mike"ing righteous ass and how you were missing Harvey Korman. I think we all do big guy...keep the faith!

Peace, love and hairgrease,
the Speaker

Mortimer Peacock said...

Mr. Speaker-

I am awake, and my drunk ramblings will forever stand as a testament to that night we went to French Cats' concert after the Thrashers lost 8-1 to the Caps. Never forget.

Mutton Sourdough said...

Great game fellas! Can we start calling them the District 5 Nothings yet? Not that theyll ever morph into a league power, but they sure dont really deserve to wear anything but a training jersey with only a color and no logo or name on it after that performance.
