Year: 2009

  • Oilers 3, Maple Leafs 1.

    What? Explain? They go up against a team like the Penguins, and win. They go up against a team like the Bruins, and eventually win. But they go up against Edmonton and they don’t show up? I’m not very good at wrapping my head around that particular prospect. I’m even

  • Maple Leafs 4, Penguins 3.

    Surprise of surprises, the team still knows how to play an almost decent game. I about got ready to crap myself when I looked at the final score. And they did it while not actually being put in a come from behind situation–a situation that, sadly, we rather majorly suck

  • Warm it up, Chris.

    During last night’s bit of pre-festivities festivities, we got to talking about music we ended up growing up with–conveniently, while listening to a small subset of the music we grew up with. Somehow we ended up on the topic of the old rap band “Chris Cross”. And I’ve had one

    We have wicked awesome timing. You might even say we know all too well how to have fun. We had a little of that fun last night. I’d had a little alcoholic goodness left over from a previous spin of relaxation a while ago, so we cracked it open. A

  • 2009, in review.

    ,

    It’s been a relatively quiet year, all things considering, with the majority of the excitement coming in the last few months. In fact, so little has happened that I do believe I’ll pull out one of my rare list format entries. So, without further delay, my year, in a nutshell.

  • No, I’m not. Would you like me to?

    , , , ,

    On our way back to Canada before Christmas, we did stumble across the required small amount of duh-worthy amusement that seems to find one or both of us on every trip. This in the form of an overly inquisitive and way too curious customs officer who decided, after establishing that

  • Canadians 3, Maple Leafs 2.

    So let’s see if I can wrap my head around this here. I don’t think so, but let’s see. We fire nearly 50 shots on net, Jason “I can’t buy a goal” Blake nets one, and we still get killed by Montreal in overtime? Someone wanna explain to me how

  • Maple Leafs 3, Islanders 1.

    Did anyone actually see this game? I was otherwise engaged on this particular night. Not that it made a whole lot of difference by the looks of it. We kind of didn’t do a whole lot according to just about every report I saw about the game. And it’s against

    Being outside of Canada for a month, and used to the American way of doing things, these just hit me as true facts–mostly because I think I’ve done most of them since I’ve been back. And, because they probably need no elabouration, you get them in list format. Enjoy.

  • And just like that, we’re in Canada.

    , ,

    It’s amazing just how things tend to slip away from you when you’re in the middle of one of life’s chaotic moments. We had one such the past week or so. As expected we took off on the morning, early, of the 24th–about 20 minutes before 2, to be precise.
