HOCKEY!

A belated happy [insert winter holiday and the New Year here] to all y’all!


I’ve been handling a ton of offline shit and taking part in my annual “do I really want to keep blogging?” mental exploration…but now I’m back on the scene. 

Let’s jump right on in, shall we?

There’s a ton of shit going on, but I’d like to focus on something to celebrate…NHL HOCKEY IS BACK!

And that means Blues hockey is back!!!

Pause…do happy dance in couch-based area…continue.

After a long ass and extremely painful lockout, the league and players reached a tentative deal and hockey may start as early as next week.

I haven’t read the background on what they’ve all agreed on, but it had better be some long-term shit that will prevent this from happening for years.

What?

Oh, I fretted over the fiscal cliff…and I'll be wringing my hands over the debt ceiling too…but this bitch thrives on hockey and anything that prevents that puck from dropping results in serious distress!

And the sorta-deal was reached just in time for my return to practicing the fine art of bitchitude. 

Happy, happy, happy and joy, joy, JOY!

***logs off to make offering of gratitude to the hockey gods***

Maybe Congress and the White House should settle the debt ceiling mess by lacing on some skates and hitting the ice.

I would enjoy seeing certain members of Congress checked into the boards . . . or sent off for misconduct.

Welcome back, Shark-fu!

Ha! I knew there'd be a post from you today! Glad your Blues are back in business!

Don't let the Black social regulation committee read this; they might revoke your afro-centric membership.

My love of hockey is well known and they keep renewing my black folk membership card every year!

Hockey is for everyone...

(tongue in cheek) you do realize a 48-game schedule means the Blues will get their asses handed to them even faster, right? If hockey is back, so is hockey trash-talking!

Aw, I missed it so!

Our lineup looks fierce...so I fear you NOT!

Alls I need to do is dust off my trusty Blues gnome and get my sorta-beagles outfitted in their lucky Blues collars and it is ON.

Glad to see you back in bidness! And for my first-time response to you may I just say, in all Hockey Friendness: Kings Rule!!!

p.s. Clippers ain’t bad neither

Ha! We'll see about that, my friend!!

***rubs hands together and then gleefully goes in search of date for first LA v St. Louis game***

I'm so happy for you that you have your boys in blue back, Pam. Sadly, after a childhood in Minnesota spent busting my @ss on the ice, I have little love for the game. No, Mommie Dammit will have to wait for the Wizards to return before I can start the trash-talk, screaming in frustration, and throwing things at the big screen... they won't let me in the stadium anymore... I wonder why?

I am not really a Blues fan, but I will admit I look forward to watching Vladimir Tarasenko, who was easily the steal of the 2010 draft. Go Blackhawks!
