God Bless America

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

"God Bless America" a stirring song no doubt, and that coming from a Canadian; but if this Canadian (card carrying member of Leaf Nation) only has to hear it one more time during the NHL playoffs...that's just fine.

The stinking Philadelphia Flyers opened Game 3 of the Conference Finals with Kate Smith's rendition of God Bless America - which of course prompts announcers to reference the Flyers' record when "Kate Smith sings" - it didn't do the Flyers, or their retarded fans, an ounce of good last night as they lost to the Penguins by a count of 4-1.

Leaf Nation is feeling the love for the Penguins these days as they have dispatched with the Tards, the Habs and now the Flyers. Die-hard members of the Nation would love to see the Penguins dispatch with our once hated rivals in Detroit...but the first three is enough for most of us.

From the Damien Cox school of journalism
A reporter from the Toronto Star, NOT named Damien Cox, must have been scrambling for something to write about - news today that Phoenix Coyotes co-owner Wayne Gretzky is not interested in becoming the President of the Toronto Maple Leafs. This might be the most asinine thing written about the Leafs search for upper management. When was Gretzky's name ever mentioned? Lame doesn't even begin to describe the article.

Not sure what school of journalism
Speaking of lame - the Boston Herald posted an apology to the New England Patriots and their fans for accusations leveled at the organization that they videotaped the St. Louis Rams' walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl. The comments (venom) are rolling in fast and furious from outraged Pats fans - if you think you were in the midst of a bad day...think about what a certain beat reporter at the Herald must be feeling.

UGH to yesterday. Tonight's suggestions:

Boston over Baltimore - back to the well again. Hard to see the Sox dropping two straight to the O's. Lay $100 on Boston - $125.

Toronto over Minnesota - Roy Halladay goes for Toronto against Boof Bonser - would you bet on a guy named Boof? Lay $100 on the Jays - $135

Florida/Cincinnati over 10 - this one could get ugly, especially with Arroyo pitching on three days rest. Lay $100 on the over - $105.

Los Angeles over Milwaukee - it is time for Big Blue to put an end to this ugly losing streak, Lowe over Parra. Lay $100 on the Dodgers - $105.

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!
