Don Chevrier Remembered

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

Sad day for Canadian sports fans - one of the truly great Canadian sportscasters, Don Chevrier, passed away suddenly at his home in Florida at the age of 69. Chevrier, in addition to covering a number of high profile international events, was the first Toronto Blue Jays television broacaster - of course, Hazel would know that from her days growing up as a Jays fan. Canadian press story here

Tough night in the NHL if you are a member of Leaf Nation or a Bruins fan - we both lost last night in games we had every chance to win. In Toronto's case, they blew a two goal lead in the last minute and a half before losing in overtime to the Canes. What killed the Leafs was Alexei Ponikarovsky's giveaway at the Canes blue line when he had a chance to ice the game with an empty net goal. While the result stung - Leaf Nation could not have felt good about their chances going into last night's game, so we'll take the point. Still waiting for the Toronto media to tell us how much we missed McCabe last night.

In Boston's case? Three breakaways and nothing to show for it. Enough said.

Must be a slow day, the idiot (pimp) in a box Jim Rome spent twenty minutes talking about how Britney Spears' sister is pregnant - of course he blamed it on his phantom emailers. Ya Jim, some of us just don't get your show...idiot.

Calgary Flames G Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 36 shots in a 3-1 win over Columbus - honourable mention goes to Jarome Iginla who had a goal (even though it cost us $200 on a Pro-Line ticket).

Anaheim Ducks G J.S. Giguere stopped all 20 shots in a 2-0 win over San Jose.

Dallas Stars G Marty Turco stopped 33 shots in a 2-1 shootout win over Edmonton.

All of the above mentioned players are on the Maeple Leafs roster in the yahoo league.

2-1 last night, but we only netted $30 thanks to the stinking Flyers dropping one to the Coyotes last night. The total for the week stands at + $330. We're back baby...tonight's suggestions:

Anaheim over Colorado - the Avs will again be without Joe Sakic which will hurt - the Ducks are the play tonight. Lay $100 on the Ducks - $130.

Nashville over Chicago - both of the Hawks goalies have miserable records against the Predators, take a chance on the visitors. Lay $100 on Nashville + $125.

We'd suggest taking the underdog Kings tonight - the Red Wings have to lose in regulation sooner or later...but we aren't confident enough to have you risk cash on it.

That's it for today gang - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, we hope things are groovy in your world.

We're Out!
