It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "hey" goes out to Ms. Hazel Mae.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – damn snow. Woke up this morning to a winter wonderland with big billowy snowflakes falling softly from the sky – the kind of snowflakes that brings you back to childhood days when you would open your mouth and catch them on your tongue as you walk to school …ok, enough of that Norman Rockwell crap – you do that now and you’ve got Acid Rain snowflakes…

As I mentioned yesterday, the Torino 2006 edition of Team Canada was announced yesterday; with Mario Lemieux and Steve Yzerman opting out of the 2006 Olympics, Joe Sakic of the Colorado Avalanche will captain this year’s team. There were no real surprises this year – with every player selected to the 20 man roster having had donned a Team Canada jersey in international play at the professional level.

Martin Brodeur will shoulder the goaltending responsibilities, with Luongo waiting in the wings if needed.

The Defence is made up of veterans, with the exception of Robyn Regher (a young 25) – in what could be considered a surprise pick, Adam Foote was selected to the starting 7. Foote selection was based more on past achievements for Team Canada, and not for his play this year, which can only be summed up as “ok”. He’s a vet and they expect him to show up. Kudos to Bryan McCabe who made the taxi squad.

There were no real surprises in terms of forwards – well, maybe just Kris Draper, but he is the checking center…so there aren’t a lot of questions coming from fans up here. The discussion up here has focussed on whether or not Todd Bertuzzi should have made the team or not – bottom line is that Gretzky is loyal to those who have delivered in the past…you gotta respect that.

All in all, it looks like another Gold Medal team – right Hazel? Are you allowed to agree with that?

Things are heating up, and regardless of what you hear, let your intuition lead the way. You can and will gain respect as long as you stick to your own standards. 3 stars

In keeping with the days of Christmas theme…

On the third day of Christmas I wish Hazel would give to me…a promise of three playoff series victories for the Los Angeles Dodgers this year.

Hey, it is Christmas and I can wish for whatever I want!

Have a great one peeps…Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world…enjoy the Leafs and Bruins tonight if you go to the game. GO LEAFS GO

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps – just because I heard it this morning…and with the snowy weather, it was both mesmerizing and blinding at the same time.

I Go Blind – 54/40 (later covered by Hootie and the Blowfish…if you don’t know the significance – then you don’t know Hazel).

Peesth Out!
