Blue & White Baby!!!!

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

Quick entry today, given we had computer issues this morning.

Our eyes have been on Champions League today with the "little team that could", FC Porto for those of you who are new here, playing Besitkas from Turkey. Porto went into the game needing a tie to progress to the knockout round of 16. They won 2-0 with Quaresma scoring one of the two.

Things are looking up in Leaf land after Hazel's Maple Leafs delivered a "s--t kicking" (Tampa Bay coach John Tortorella's words) on the Lightning last night at the ACC. A lot of members of Leaf Nation are (or should be) eating some crow now as Leafs forward Nik Antropov had another impressive game - scoring a goal and setting up Chad Kilger on another.

In what could only happen in Toronto, certain Maple Leafs hating members of the media (cough cough Damien Cox cough cough) still refuse to admit that this team may have turned a corner. These "impartial observers who have no vested interest in the fortunes of the Maple Leafs (cough Damien Cox's words cough) have decided to completely ignore the last seven games that have seen Toronto post a 5-1-1 record, opting instead to look at the upcoming nine game road trip as a true measure of where this team stands. A certain columnist tries to make a compelling argument on why the road trip is make or break for the Leafs - with the underlying tone being that they will flop - forgetting that Toronto has been a better road team than home team for the better part of last season and the current one. Damien is a donkey - period.

For those of you checking in - karma has a way of getting you. We crapped on the Canucks yesterday and suggested a play on them - only to find out today that Roberto Luongo took himself out of the lineup during the pre-game warm up. Total for the week stands at a paltry + $40. We'll get it right tonight. Suggested plays:

St. Louis over Edmonton - Oilers lost a tough one last night and face a rested team that has owned them of late - hoping karma doesn't come back to bite us on this one. Lay $100 on the Blues - $200.

San Jose over Minnesota - we are still hating Joe Thornton. The Sharks are the league's best home team, so you have to think they'll respond after getting their "aces" handed to them by the Sabres on Saturday night. Lay $100 on the Sharks - $175.

Pittsburgh over Philadelphia - the Penguins are playing pretty good hockey right now - the Flyers? Well, they haven't had anyone suspended this week. Crosby has owned the Flyers during his brief career - expect it to continue tonight. Lay $100 on the Pens + $110.

That's it for today gang - we'll get the Hazies up soon. Thanks for taking the time to check in -
have a great one peeps.

Hazel, we hope things are groovy in your world.We're Out!
