Hey look, somebody with all their clothes on!
Sorry, it’s Monday and I’m punchy. Plus I can’t get past this goal from Saturday night. The Flyers and Maple Leafs went all of regulation and overtime waiting for this one. Claude Giroux with the ridiculous shootout game-winner:
Are you kidding me? It’s so beautiful I want to cry. Datsyuk never makes me cry. Here’s G talking about how he gets away with stuff like that and Bryz finally rendered speechless by something he cannot explain.
What is it with Giroux?! He’s wearing a purple Italian restaurant tablecloth as a shirt. With a polka dot tie! [link] I’d remind you that he plays for the Flyers, but I get the distinct impression you are ignoring me.
Just drink your Kool-Aid.
Maybe even better than that goal? The reaction of his teammates on the bench. Pretty much what everyone everywhere did.
The bad guy in movies is always so handsome. Well it doesn’t work on us, so keep walking, Ginger! WELP. As if that weren’t enough, he’s also ridiculously underpaid. Like Extreme Couponing-meets-one of those storage unit shows where you buy the place and find the Hope Diamond inside. The $5 million Claude will make in 2013-14 doesn’t even crack the top 50 NHL salaries for this year. [link]
Philly is 7-3 in their last 10, currently 5th in the East and tied with New Jersey at 85 points. They lost to the Devils yesterday (4-1) and play them again tomorrow. NJ is struggling a bit, going 5-4-1 over that stretch. Both teams are within spitting distance of Pittsburgh at 89 points (9-1-0, thankyouverymuch) and in danger of being caught by Ottawa with 81.
If the Penguins play the Flyers in the first round, I’m going to need to brush up on my swear words. It would require some very specific commentary.
