GIJAYNE Posted October 13, 2008 Author Report Share Posted October 13, 2008 OUR BEST STEAM ROLLER IMPRESSION Toronto sucks…Yeah yeah I know. The Leafs game is behind us but there is a serening effect when on strings those words together. And what better way to start Thanksgiving Monday than with a big ol’ LEAFS SUCK. What a weekend. Brought my baby daughter home on Friday, HABS season opener Friday night, Stingers domination Saturday afternoon, HABS domination over Leafs Saturday night, family over on Sunday for Thanksgiving dinner and now here we are. I have a stomach full of the funky bird (so much so I must have morphed 10% Turkey overnight), shirt full of baby spit up (as gross as that sounds it’s my baby girls spit up so it’s liquid gold for me) and a day of sports to look forward to. The Als kick off at 1:00 p.m. against the Hamilton Tie-turds, who will undoubtedly get blown away by the good guys in a similar fashion to what Concordia and the HABS put forth on Saturday given the context (i.e. revenge match and redemption for a sloppy performance). Just to give an idea to those who may not be following the CFL (it’s OK, we all make mistakes) the Als lost to the Tie-Cats last week. This would have been the equivalent of Montreal loosing to the Maple Leafs on Saturday by a three goal margin, then having a rematch in Montreal the following weekend. Yeah…that’s how pumped up the locals will be. Following this game, we’ll have the pleasure of watching another CFL game (Calgary vs Saskatchewan). Calgary is most probably the team we will be facing in the final so watching them is always interesting and fun (kind of like the Red Wings in the NHL). Then comes the main event. Between the three sporting events I’ll barely have time to run up and replenish the beer supply and chips…what am I talking about. Father of two here….let me rephrase. Between the two games I’ll barely have enough time to replenish baby bottles, drop off soiled kids with the murses for a diaper upgrade, feed, burp play with and put to sleep one of or both of the kids, while hanging on to any shred of sanity, patience and all in all will to live I may have left. Thank the Holy Sponge Bob some Star Trek Treky nerd had the good grace to invent a magical device that can pause and re-play live TV. Mental not: Warn all humanity of the perils ensuing from having multiple offspring. So one way or another I will watch all the events, with my highest expectations held for the game tonight. After the game in Toronto it will be interesting to see how the team reacts to playing the team that eliminated them in last year’s play offs. There are a multitude of possibilities here, however if this team is the team of destiny and wants to prove this firmly to themselves and the rest of the league, we must continue to play at a high level, never slow down, never think “revenge” and always think about the big “W”. Pulling off another win against the Flyers would not only continue our streak of obtaining 5/6 points on the road to open the season, but would also re-emphasize the strength and power of this team. Opponents must fear us and should always feel like the underdogs. The way to accomplish this of course is to continue steam rolling over anyone and everyone we face, regardless of their skill and level. Whether it’s the last place TML or power house of Detroit, this locker room has to prove to the hockey world that the paradigm shift we all claim the team has is real and is here. So tonight, no stupid penalties in trying to “get back” at Philly (which I think is a safe bet) and score score score. All three lines must perform (especially Kovalev’s line …I’m getting killed in my pool!) and the power play. It’s seems fitting that we’re playing the Flyers on Thanksgiving Monday…let’s go out and carve some birds tonight. NL STANDINGS OCTOBER 13 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
