My not so evil twin

10-0!!!



Okay, so I got home last night in time to have caught the last half of the game, but decided to just let the PVR handle it and watched a couple other shows instead (along with bits of the other games until my brother pointed out that they might flash the Flames - Red Wings score at some point). Couldn't chance that...


When I was watching the Ottawa- Pittsburgh game with a buddy of mine after our own game, a thing came up on the screen mentioning that the national broadcast would be the Vancouver game (since it was a 3-1 series), I had to make a quick call home. I hadn't actually set the PVR myself, but I had planned on calling my brother before the puck was supposed to drop and get him to do it. Apparently I didn't have to. Not only had he already set it, but he saw the announcement for the regional broadcast as well, and had set it for one of the few stations we get that was showing it (god bless time-shifting)...


Of course, when I did get home he spent the next hour and a half asking me if I wanted to know what the score was...


But that's alright, as he's a good enough brother to not actually spoil it for me. I'm kind of stunned that he would record it for me in the first place, given that he is frequently complaining about the Flames games I already have saved on it. But he's cool like that, I guess...


Since I couldn't use my Ritchie PVR picture (as he wasn't playing lst night), I had to create a new one with Langkow...


Of course, most of my PVR's record can be attributable to home games, so the real test will be Saturday afternoon in Detroit. I have a potential finals game in my one tournament at 3:00 and a round robin game in my other tournament at 4:30, so I will be missing the Flames game regardless. Let's just hope the record can carry through...


Go Flames!!!

Er.

Delete that recording and don't even think about watching it, if you value your sanity.

Trying not to rip my eyes out, L.

One of the guys from my second tournament team tole me the score of the game about halfway through today... I think that may have jinxed it.. Of course, my team kicked ass, but that doesn't help our Flames...

Alright, the boys will take the game on Sunday night, and I thin kwe can take the final game in Detroit, as long as somebody convinces the evil road Flames that they serve no purpose...
