Kick ‘Em When They’re Down 12/14 vs PHX

So these comments are from last night’s Game Thread brought to you by Five for Howling, even though we all know that Coyotes yelp more than they howl.  Howling is wolfs.  Imagine if the Ducks used a bald eagle’s cry when they scored a goal…that’s pretty much what they do down in Phoenix with their goal horn.  Anyway, the thread had about 130 comments but there were only like 4 guys doing it so I had to use repeat offenders.  OdinMercer is running the show, I think…

Holy crap. THe YOtes are crazy injured.phoenixoldlogo

Nevermind. I meant the Red Wings. Sheesh.

First comment of the night, by the blogger and it’s a swing and a miss.

always hate to lay an egg, but if you’re going to lay one better against the Wings than a team you have no business losing to. Lucky this one isn’t 6-1 already. Still in it, but need that next goal.

So basically, what Roussel is saying is that Phoenix does indeed have business losing to Detroit.  Can’t say that I blame him…it’s always nice to hear that dismissive “well of course we’re losing, we’re playing Detroit”.  It’s very refreshing.

Then he follows it up with this:

petey, so close!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That comment right there gets post of the game for actually having more exclamation marks than letters.

Whoever runs the Wings passing drills needs to come show our guys how it’s done.

Ha.  But here’s the hum-dinger…

I’m looking at going back to school for Pharm. Means I have to take all those science classes I avoided by being an Art major 😛

Another Pharmacisit?  Aw, crap.  If you don’t get that, you need to head over to A2Y and poke around a bit.  Nice use of smileys at the end there too, Odin.

Not the best of the bunch, but remember these are coming from the same fan base that believes your team allegiance is strictly based on where you live.  If you move away, you’re not allowed to cheer for that team anymore.


Kick ‘Em When They’re Down

I think a nice new addition to this site would be to post defeated team’s pre-game shtick the day after we beat them. This would only occur on games that we WIN, of course.

Found this one on the Battle of California, since LA Kings-exclusive blogs don’t seem to exist (ok…I didn’t look very hard).

I usually don’t despise the Detroit Red Wings, more a jealousy than anything, but I’ve grown to hate them since their embarrassing display after they lost to the Penguins. Henrik Zetterberg is a baby, Lidstrom is annoying (just get old already), Chris Osgood is the most overrated player this side of David Eckstein, their coach is a douche bag, and they have Todd Bertuzzi. (Pavel Datsyuk… is cool, though his head is candy corn shaped.) I really hope the Kings kick them while they’re down.

…and the NHL’s Three Star Selection from this game:

1. Old and Annoying

2. The Most Overrated Player This Side of David Eckstein

3. And They Have Todd Bertuzzi

***Honorable Mention: The Baby netted his first goal last night.

So who got kicked? Who’s down? Oh whoops, two game losing streak for you, LA. Hope you enjoy your Pacific Division lead…it probably won’t last the month. But look on the bright side: Sharks lost last night to the Washington Ovechkins…but Dany Heatley will still score 70 goals this year.
