Gameday - Vancouver

Excellent!




Time for a little housekeeping before the Flames host the Vancouver Canucks tonight...

I'm not sure if any of you caught any of the pay per view the other night with Theoren Fleury on it, but it was pretty amusing. Somehow it took my brother about 5 minutes to figure out that it was Theo doing the colour (he wasn't talking all that much, and when it did, it was with his typical prairie boy charm). I'd already known that Fleury had gotten into the concrete flooring business and that it was for quality finishes (as opposed to just pouring floors), but I was unaware of this little bit of info...

Are you a fan of Theo Fleury’s? Theo will sign your floor, driveway or walkway – just ask before we seal it!

I don't think I've ever been more inclined to move to Calgary and buy a house (or at least a small piece of land I can pave over)...

I was watching the end of the Detroit - Nashville game the other night and I think I figured out why the attendance is so bad at Joe Louis lately. Once the game was over (Detroit won in a shootout), as the teams were leaving the ice they began to blare this really bad song over the loudspeakers. It was kind of like the Wayne's World theme (the one the studio made for them), but with the words 'Red Wings' in place of the show title. I had to watch it a few times to be sure, but I know that if I was a wing fan, I'm not sure if I'd want to sit around an arena that plays crap like that all night. At least if I watch it at home the play by play and colour guys could drown it out a little bit...

Rascal Flatts covered Tom Cochrane's Life is a Highway for a car commercial that played near the end of the Carolina game the other night. I'm still not sure how I feel about that...

For those of you that are curious, Irene Ryan played Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies...

I had a bunch of other things on my mind, but I can't remember them right now. I may have to update later...

The boys come home after a brutal stretch of games that saw them lose three consecutive times by a score of 4-1. I think the Ocean-going Spawns of Satan back at the Saddledome is just what the doctor ordered...

Of course, I think I'm as curious as anyone as to just who the doctor is that orders all the weird stuff like a beer on a hot day, or a an easy opponent after a hard stretch, or a one night stand after... uh, nevermind...

Anyways, I think the boys are most definitely due for a big game. I'm thinking 6-1 and Lombardi pots a couple...

I love that your predictions for scoring seem to match your hockey pool players... interesting, no?

Detroit has been empty because of the economy. Nobody has any money to go to the games, and most of the seats are season ticket holders, and none of them go to the games. For hockeytown this is pretty bad.
