Damn Technical Issues

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

I don't know what's up with blogger these days - but it was out for most of the night last night. It was a Wednesday - and you know what I say about Wednesdays. I'll post some stuff later after the Leafs and SenaTards game tonight - but here is one that defines "the whacked" in Weird & Whacked Wednesdays.

Some dude pulled a gun on his six year old son's football coach, because he felt his son wasn't getting enough playing time. Yes, you read that right - dad was pissed because he felt his SIX YEAR OLD son wasn't getting enough time. I could understand having a talk with the coach and saying "Hey, I paid my son's fees - he has the right to be out there playing." But pulling a damn gun on a coach?

This one is obviously whacked - and if you didn't think so on reading of the recap, check out the the end of the article, it says that a referree was arrested on assault charges after being accused of throwing a punch at a man. You gotta love youth football...

Yesterday's picks didn't go as well as I had hoped - the Rangers were heavy favourites (I saw a $2.00 line) meaning that despite going 2-1 last night, I still would have lost $50 bucks had I plunked down the cash. Still though, being up $95 bucks after three nights isn't bad - considering it was all based on relatively small wagers. Remember what the lottery corporations and casinos say "Play responsibly" (ya right). So on to today's three play. Remember, we don't think Hazel would condone gambling - so these hypothetical plays are for entertainment purpose only - unless you bet them and make a wad of to a Red Sox game at Fenway next spring would be a nice way to say "thank you".

New Jersey over Florida - the Panthers needed a huge game from Ed Belfour to pull it out last night. The Rangers were awful at both ends of the ice last night - the Devils won't repeat that performance. Take the Devils and put $50 down. NJ -2.50

Carolina over Tampa Bay - the Hurricanes won an O/T game last night against a very good Atlanta team. Normally you wouldn't play a team coming off an O/T game - but I think Carolina is that much better than Tampa, who are a mess right now. Take the Canes...but only for $25. Carolina +1.20

Buffalo over NY Islanders - you have to like the Sabres in this one...put don't lay down too much; the Sabres will be huge favourites and they are due to lose one soon - though I don't think tonight is the night. Take the high flying Sabres - but only for $25. Buffalo -2.00

Looks like a pretty good shot at a $100 night.

Games to avoid:
  • Montreal and Boston - too unpredictable, if you had to take someone I guess you'd go with Montreal but...Hazel wouldn't be feeling a play against the Bruins.

  • Philadelphia over Atlanta - the Thrashers should walk in this game, but remember this is the Flyers' first game under new coach John Stevens...teams usually respond.

  • St. Louis and Detroit - this series is too tough to call. Depends on pitchers tonight...but I'd just as soon leave it alone.


Joe Sakic of the Colorado Avalanche recorded his 1500th point last night in a loss to the Capitals. If you are a hockey fan - you have to love Sakic; he is the epitomy of a class. I think Hazel would second the nomination of Sakic...even in a losing cause.

Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks had two goals and an assist in 5-0 win over a depleted Chicago Blackhawks team; still though, he kid came through at a time when the Canucks have struggling on the road.

Chris Pronger had three assists last night in his first game against the Edmonton Oilers since being traded to Anaheim. Everyone in Canada was watching this one.

The Hazelspeeps Fantasy Hockey Pool is a case study in the "haves" and the "have not" with El Presidente being the latter category. It was a tough week for me in the pool - but there is still plenty of time to go, so I'm not panicking...yet. Maybe I need a kick in the ass from Renee like in the football pool. Standings for the week ending October 24th.

50.5 - Double DD Bandits - owned by Hubie. His teams go up and down like a yo-yo, so he should know not to get too comfortable in this spot.

48.0 - Skating Bobcats - owned by Commish Drisc who is quietly making a play for the Hazelspeeps double after starting out the football pool 7-0.

44.0 - Hanson Brothers - owned by Sparky, who isn't used to slummin' it in 3rd place.

40.5 - Ice Bitches - owned by our girl Renee who was the big jumper this week - guess she got bored with the view over El Presidente.

40.0 - Weekend Warriors - owned by Bakerboy who has not checked in in quite some time. Things that make you go hmmmm

29.0 - Hazel's Maeple Leafs - owned by yours truly, El Presidente, who is seriously considering contracting the services of his buddy Johnny as a consultant in this pool - after the baseball pool, we aren't allowed to talk about Asst. GMs with Renee - she gets touchy about that stuff.

That's about it for today gang...have a great one peeps.

Plan your next vacation or a trip where you can mix business with pleasure. A move from one locale to another will do you a world of good. Put yourself into a category that allows you to earn more or just get ahead personally. 5 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.
