Top Hits of the 2008-2009 NHL Season

I’m going to go with the top hits of the ’08-’09 season because metaphorically that’s what the kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid’s going through today. Because I am getting RAILROADED with work right now…enjoy the video, I have not been able to watch it yet.

By the way, I was walking past Tresca last night on my way home from work, and outside they had pictures of local Bruins players, autographed, with a note like “Thanks for the great food, Milan Lucic”. I was thinking, if I ate at Tresca or Lucca or whatever, I wonder if they would post a picture of me sitting in my cube working, an action shot of course, with a little note. I think it would be pretty cool, my only concern is that someone would try and steal it to make a few bucks by selling it on eBay.

OK, I had a chance to watch the video, and I think I can align my day really well with hit #4 or #2. Here’s why, as for hit #4, here I am thinking I’m  making a pretty good play today, I put the puck on net (finish off some projects) and then BAAAAAAAAAAM, I get blindsided and my sh*t goes everywhere….as for hit #2, here I am going through my day going to make some moves, get the puck deep, yea I know I’m going to get rubbed out, but whatever. Next thing you know the GD turnbuckle shows its face and picking my chicklets up off the ice (translated to I’m trying to cruise out of here, under the radar, I’ll probably have some things to do, and then BOOM, I get my clock cleaned by some project I didn’t anticipate).

Maybe The Best Post Season In Many Years

Have you been religously watching the NHL playoffs like I have? I don’t think I’ve watched this intently since ’92 when the Blackhawks were swept by the Penguins in the Finals. The only other memorable playoff series is in ’94 when the Rangers took the Cup and Messier gauranteed a game 7 win in the semi’s. Of course each year I can pick out a memorable series, like the Detroit/Colorado rivalry, but this year has been awesome. BTW, remember when Stevens laid out Kariya? For some reason I just though of that. Anyway, I’m a huge hockey fan during the regular season, but when a game is on, and it’s not the Bruins or Blackhawks, it will just be background noise while I spin around in my chair at my desk. However, this year has been different, I’m fist-pumping around the apartment, yelling ‘OOOOOOOOOH GIRL” when huge goals are scored, and screaming “BUUUUUNDLED” when someone gets pasted to the boards.

If you’re not paying attention to the Devils/Hurricanes, Flyers/Pens, or Blackhawks/Calgary series’ then you’re missing a lot. How this post-season is not getting more coverage, I don’t know. ESPN has so much garbage coverage on the NBA and NFL draft it’s ridiculous. Although I cannot complain, I think Versus does a much better job of coverage. NBC is trying to get into the act with its game of the week, but I’m not buying it.
