this is my last post today, i swear. i'm just excited... about hockey, if you can believe it. i've been so down on my teams this weekend that the flyers' recent win over damn ottawa makes me even happier than usual. i was all prepared to see them lose. but no, they won 5-3, handing the sens their first home loss of the season. this brought them redemption in my eyes. they scored three power play goals on the "all-mighty" hasek (read this with sarcasm, please), and they totally shut down dany heatley (too bad they couldn't do the same to chara, the big giant ostrich man, who had 2 of the sens' 3 goals). the senators never had a lead. it was awesome. hatcher still pissed me off, taking three penalties, but one of them actually wasn't his fault. that was another incident in which a flyer was penalized when his stick was nowhere near the guy he supposedly tripped. the flyer penalty kill still sucked, though. they gave up two power play goals, and their kill % is still stuck in the 70's. the PP just gets better and better, though, so that's something.
so, after that gem of a flyers game, i turned it over to the ducks/coyotes game just in time to catch a pre-second period interview with none other than dave farrish and his shiny bald head. i had actually gone into the kitchen to get some dinner when i heard, "...dave farrish" and rushed back into the living room to see pensacola's former coach on fox sports west. it was pretty sweet.
and with that, i will have happy dreams tonight.
