Kick ‘Em When They’re Down vs St. Louis 2-1-13

So – as promised, I sifted through our least favorite St. Louis blog today to see what little gems I could find from the MENSA candidates over at St. Louis Game Time.  They never disappoint.

I knew what the feelings would be like in St. Louis after last night's game.  It was a bad call on Backes…a terrible call.  Interference?  Maybe…depending on how the ref was feeling last night apparently.  But there was no contact to Huskins' head.  I know it, you know it…and now the whole world knows it.

So after the usual "f*** Detroit" over and over and over and over again – they settled into their usual routine of gifs and tough talk.  They REALLY don't like listening to Ken/Mick/Larry.  The first two periods (aside from getting off-track on a conversation about Chapelle's Show) was dominated by complaining about our broadcast team…they still haven't figured out that the the play-by-play and color commentators are EMPLOYED by the team they call.

Make the jump to get the fun started.

Sticking with the topic of complaining about FSD – here's my favorite thread:

Oh Bernie. A Blue could pull a Bertuzzi and you would still say the penalty was questionable at best.

Bernie is the ultimate homer – but he’s our homer dammit

At least he's a lovable homer.  He just makes you ch***le. Not like those Detroit homers that make you want to vomit.

The other guys probably say the same thing about us.

Did I mention that they like to use profanity?  Here's a couple gems after Ericsson tied things up:

Not sure what that last one really means, per say…but it's funny nonetheless.

Now let's get to the meat and potatoes – the real reason I was looking forward to posting this.  And let me remind you of what a pain in the butt these kind of posts are – so you all better be reading this.

by UIWWildthing on Feb 1, 2013 8:48 PM CST

Gotta make sure the Dead Things win…same shit different year
by Jstats on Feb 1, 2013 8:49 PM CST

No. No. No. No. NO NO NO NO!!!!!  Un-f***ing-believable. That’s not even a penalty. Not even close to a penalty. And you call it a f***ing major and toss him? Are you f***ing kidding me? In a 3-3 game halfway through the third period, you give a major and misconduct for something that’s not even a f***ing penalty. One of the worst calls I’ve ever seen in my life.
by blunatic on Feb 1, 2013 8:49 PM CST

Well…you get the idea.  They didn't like it.  Oh and that jab about Detroit's ghetto?  Real cute…especially because St. Louis is such a tourist attraction with its booming economy and lovely…uh…they have that arch thing that's bigger than I thought it would be.

The rest of the post was fairly uneventful…just more complaining about the refs (as expected).  At one point, an apparent Detroit fan jumped in and did some trolling (they didn't like that either).

How many F-bombs in this particular thread?  Too many to count.  And since I don't have Microsoft Word on this computer – I can't get the computer to do it.  Homework anyone?  475 comments – impressive.

Thanks to our friends at SLGT for giving us more fodder to have fun with.

Columbus tonight – let's hope Z can rally the troops on back-to-back nights.
