It's oppressively hot outside, comrades. The sun beats down, oil-waves smother the beach, the vuvuzelas haunt your dreams, and so do the World Cup lady fans of various nationalities.

What better way to stave off the heat than a mojito and this, the Thrashers' pre-season schedule for 2010? It's almost like the Internet can help us see into the future. Now tell me, Web-box, is the Swedish New Wave going to be our salvation or is it not? HMMM?

Another important question: if Dudley brings Torchetti here, will we see a reincarnation of the Blackhawks build-up, or perhaps even the heady days of the early 00's Florida Panthers? We shall all find out, together.

Thankfully teams have realized in their 2nd matches that they actually have to SHOOT the ball. 12 goals so far in the 2nd round of games. Good stuff. Even if Giovanni Dos Santos is only 9 years old.

How about Halak going to St. Louis for a Tony LaRussa DUI mugshot and a ham sandwich? Who wins that deal?And when can we trade Todd White for the exact same deal?

I know, really! When I heard Halak was going to St. Louis I thought it would have to be a big trade, but apparently not. Maybe Montreal will give us Cammalleri for Todd White and Angelo Esposito.

Meanwhile, Domenech of France is completely insane.

Mojito's not really my style. I'm more of a cold beer guy. But that's a great line of thinking, refreshing beverage on a hot day. Also, I wouldn't mind drowning a worm on a day like this. But unfortunately, Fate allowest not.

Also, if "Chuck" wins the poll, does Todd White now have to be known as Todd "Chuck" White?

Mortimer Peacock said...


Yeah, I prefer cold beer myself, but "mojito" sounded properly flashy and attention-getting.

And YES, if "Chuck" wins the poll, it's Chuck White from here on. I'm not kidding.

Mutton Sourdough said...

Mojito does have more flash to it than the dull ring of "beer"

Let's hear it for Chuck White folks! THEN he can be named President, GM and player/coach. "Damnit, Coach! I'm healthy scratch AGAIN??" "Uh, Coach, you scratched yourself..."
