Happy Halloween

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

Halloween came a day early in Toronto and Minnesota - the Vikings endured the horror show that was playing the Patriots last night, and the high-octane Thrashers must have thought there were ghosts helping the Maple Leafs last night at the ACC.

The Patriots completely dominated the Vikings and their pop-gun offence; Brad Johnson looked confused, frustrated and disappointed that his noodle arm couldn't carry out what his brain wanted to do. Johnson, one of the NFL's ultimate managers, proved that he couldn't put the team on his shoulders and lead them to a victory; or in the case of last night, keeping them in a game against one of the league's better teams. When a manager throws three interceptions - that pretty much says it all.

The Thrashers visited the ACC, fresh off a shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night, and were beaten 4-2 by the Maple Leafs. Atlanta, with one of the league's more potent offences, were stymied time and again last night by Andrew Raycroft, Michael Peca, and a suspect Maple Leafs' defence. The Thrashers, who scored one power play goal, were unable to score with two 5 on 3 power play opportunities. The Leafs on the other hand scored three power play goals in the win. Thanks for coming out Atlanta.

Darcy Tucker of the Maple Leafs scored his eighth and ninth goals on the power play last night to lead Toronto to the win. Honourable mention goes to Michael Peca who was a beast on the penalty kill and neutralized Atlanta's big guns; Hal Gill who was, according to Coach Paul Maurice, a tower of strength out there; Andrew Raycroft who stopped 31 shots in the win, and Captain Mats Sundin who added three assists, all on the power play.

Tom Brady of the Patriots completed 29 passes for 372 yards and four TDs in romp over the Vikings in Minnesota. Brady completed passes to 10 different receivers last night, with three of them finishing the game with 80+ yards receiving. Honourable mention goes to S Rodney Harrison who picked off a Brad Johnson pass in the end zone as the Vikings were driving to tie the game after a Brady INT.

Peter Forsberg, bad wrist and all, scored two goals last night to lead the awful Flyers to a win over the suddenly anemic (and injury riddled) Chicago Blackhawks. If you have read this page, you know how I feel about the Flyers...but as things go, Forsberg is A-Ok here.

A good night yesterday going 2-1, with both $50 plays winning; on the downside the Flames lost to the Caps and they were $200 favorites, meaning the $25 we would have played would have translated into a $50 loss. All in all, a good night going plus $50 and running the total to +179.

San Jose over Florida - the Sharks will be huge favourites, but they should win this one rather easily. Lay $50 on the Sharks.

Nashville over Vancouver - the Canucks are off to a good start, but don't be fooled - they aren't that good. Nashville is starting to round into form after a slow start to the season. Lay $25 down on the Predators, they should be dogs tonight.

NY Islanders over Chicago - this game sucks, and you probably shouldn't play it...but its a three play, so I have to pick a third game. The Hawks are on a nasty streak right now, and should be easy pickings for the almost equally awful Islanders. Lay $25 down on the Isles and hope for the best.

That's about it for this morning...Have a great one peeps!

It's time to get serious about some of the projects and goals you have set for yourself. Look at a partnership for what it is worth. If you can both offer something of value, money can be made, deals signed and security obtained. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world...shouldn't be too scary of a day for you.
