D-Day and the irony of it all

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

Leafs and Bruins tonight at the ACC - a loss for the Leafs and they can kiss the 07/08 season goodbye, a win and they are still in the thick of things. The same can be said of the Bruins, playing without Marc Savard tonight, a loss and they are pretty much a sure bet to slide right out of the top 8 and into the category of also-rans - which is where they should be.

The irony of it all is that the Leafs missed the playoffs by a point last year - due in large part to a few very poor games against the Bruins; payback comes tonight Boston...and it's a bitch.

SenaTards owner Eugene Melnyk started out the 07/08 season telling anyone who would listen that his team would win the 07/08 Stanley Cup - and that he would do anything in his power to make it happen. News broke yesterday that Melnyk, along with three other senior executives of his Biovale Corporation, were being investigated by the Securities Exchange Commission for, among other things, "chronic fraud". Sounds like Melnyk's team alright - chronic frauds.

The irony of it all is that Leaf Nation has to put our hatred of the SenaTards aside tonight and root for a win over the Sabres. After laughing at the Tards for getting punked at the Bell Centre last night - we have to change hats and hope these donkeys pull one out against Buffalo.

Oh yeah, Sox beat the A's today - touching up Huston Street for three runs to get the game into extra innings; they're blessed I tell ya.

Last week ended off on a good note - but the total for the week was minimal; the total for the year is still ugly, but it is going down. It'll be right before week 1 of the NFL. Tonight's suggestions:

Toronto over Boston - the Bruins demise continues tonight. Lay $100 on Hazel's team (the Leafs) - $150.

Nashville over Columbus - a bit of a scary game, but I like the Preds to win at home tonight against the Jackets who are out of it. Lay $100 on Nashville - $175.

SenaTards over Buffalo - the Tards face a big game tonight, a loss brings more questions about whether or not they are a complete fraud - Sabres are banged up pretty bad. Lay $100 on the Tards - $140.

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

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out
