It’s Alright, It’s Okay.

The season is officially over for both of us.  We may have that summertime sadness, but it doesn’t mean we can’t be awesome.  As the writer Hal Borland said, “No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it’s turn.”

In fact, the off-season is what some people do best.  Maybe they’ve been hanging around, waiting for us to get here….


Hi Mike.

For me, the last hurdle is today’s Penguins Break-Up Day.  Already the boys have shaved their beards.  Hell, Nisky, would it have killed you to cut your hair?  At least you’re t-shirt is A+, unlike Neal’s.  Yet you are both outperformed by 19-year old Casanova Olli Maata, who bought ice cream for a pack of girls.  Bravo.

Also this happened.  I cannot cite a source (presumably said person lasted just long enough to Tumblr, then fainted), but I could drink to this all night.


With Borts. Make mine a double.

See?  I feel better already.  We’ll have to give Chuck a few more days.

    I have actually been really depressed/crabby since the penguins lost and this has been the only thing that truly made me smile, other than the Bruins losing last night. Thanks Pants, you always know how to help a girl when she’s down.

    What if the Penguins fire Dan Bylsma and the Caps hire him??

    19-year-old Olli Maatta!!!! (At some point, he’s going to turn 20 and then what will we call him? 20-year-old Olli Maatta just doesn’t have the same ring to it.) How smooth is he? Smooth like buttah (and all the rest of the ingredients needed in ice cream.)

    I’m still hurt and harumphy but this post makes it better.

    That picture of Sidney Crosby and Robert Bortuzzo at the bar. How does anyone even know that’s Robert from the back? They are rumored, I repeat rumored, to have jetted across the pond to Spain for a week “boys only” trip. Can you imagine them in European-style beachwear (aka thongs)? *drools*
