Christmas Isn't So Merry In Toronto

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

Bad night all around in the NHL last night - if you read the page, you know what I'm talking about. The news out of Toronto isn't good, the Maple Leafs have lost Michael Peca for 3-4 months with a knee injury, Alexei Ponikarovsky for 3-4 weeks with a shoulder injury, and Kyle Wellwood is day to day - Merry Freakin Christmas...grrrrrrrr

Week 16 in the NFL and the playoff picture should become much clearer after today - the game we'll be watching today is the Giants and Saints, as it has huge implications for the Cowboys. I never thought I'd say this, but GO GIANTS!!!!!

Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson rushed for 135 yards on 35 carries and had a touchdown in a 20-9 victory over the Oakland Raiders last night - which was one of the bright spots on our Three Play. Hazel would be down with this pick.

Tampa Bay Lightning D (and a local boy) Dan Boyle had three goals and an assist in the 3rd period to lead the Lightning back from a 3-0 deficit to a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers.

Manchester United winger (and Portuguese International) Cristiano Ronaldo had two goals yesterday to lead the Red Devils to a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park. You know the rule about showing some love to the Porkchops.

We had a tough night last night going 2-2, but finishing the night $90 in the red - even with our two big picks winning. So we go into today at - $35 for the week, not what we were hoping for, but we'll have a good day today.

New England +3 over Jacksonville - I don't understand this line; I know the Pats aren't the Pats we have grown accustomed to seeing, but after Jacksonville's dismal performance last week in Tennessee they shouldn't even be favoured over NESN's touch football team (have you heard that Hazel has a rocket for an arm?). Lay $75 on the Pats with the points.

St. Louis -1.5 over Washington - I know its risky to bet on a game that features two bad teams, but I can't see why this line is so low. The Rams did ok last week against the Raiders - they should continue that today against a Redskins team that has played exactly one good game in the last month. Lay $50 on the Rams and give up the points.

Buffalo -4.5 over Tennessee - the Titans won last week with turnovers, I don't think they'll be that lucky this week as the Bills will put the game in the hands of Willis MaGahee. Vince Young can expect another tough day on the field against a Bills D that has been very good of late. Lay $50 on the Bills and give up the points.

That's it for today gang...back later with the 4 pm plays of the afternoon. Enjoy your Christmas Eve.


Travel or getting together with relatives, friends or colleagues will turn out well today. You can pick up some information that will help you out in the new year. Don't put too much emphasis on how you and your partner are getting along today. 4 stars

Hazel, I hope you have a safe and joyous Christmas weekend with your family and friends.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - what else could it be?

Fairytale of New York - The Pogues (featuring Christy McColl)

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

Merry Christmas (Happy Holidays) Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
