NOW WHAT?

Yeah, so I'm sure you all know what's going on with a certain picture of a certain Derek Roy... But I'm not even going to say I'm sorry for the spread of that picture. You know why? First of all, it's his own damn fault, secondly, I did nothing wrong, and thirdly, it was with good intentions the most harmless of intentions possible.

So, Derek, just be glad we took the picture down, although it can be found elsewhere, now, from what I've seen...

Oh well. Next time, don't let your friends violate you in public, let someone else photograph it, and the let them put it on Facebook, where anyone can see it. Namely, me. Because you know I'm giving it to MJ.

Anyways, back to legit hockey blogging.

Toni Lydman is doubtful for tonight, as is Craig Rivet, apparently. So who would get the logical promotion from Portland? Mike Weber, obviously. But I guess he's been iffy, as far as health is concerned, so then who?

(Lindy doesn't seem too, too concerned about those issues, but still...)

Marc-Andre Gragnani, in 20 games, has 1 goal and 10 assists; also, he's a -1 with 16 penalty minutes.

Mike Kostka has 2 goals and 6 assists, also in 20 games, with 6 PIM, and he's a +8.

Chris Butler's points and games are the same as Kostka's, but he is a +2 with 14 penalty minutes.

My Mikey-Poo, Mr. Funk, has been limited to 11 games due to a concussion he suffered the opening day of training camp. But, in those 11 games, he's netted just 1 goal and 3 assists. He's racked up 8 penalty minutes and is a +3.

Paul Baier, whom I'm not sure we have rights to?, has 3 points (1-2) in 18 games, with a -2 and 12 PIM.

Weber has played 19 games, has only 2 assists to put towards his point total, and is a +5 with 51 PIM.

Mike Card has been limited to 13 games, most recently due to taking a puck off of his gorgeous face (please don't need plastic surgery). He's only got 1 assist, so far, on the year, and is an even 0 on +/-, with 16 penalty minutes.


I'm making my choice with the assumption that Weber is unavailable, fyi...

So, based purely on statistics, I'd probably want to call up Gragnani or Kostka. Based on playing style, comparable to Lydman, I'd probably go with Funk, because when I've seen him play in person, he's physical on the puck, and he can skate. Based solely on the fact that I adore him, I'd call Funker, as well.

But I'm kind of mad at him because he still hasn't accepted my friendship on Facebook... Then again, neither have Mancari or Dylan Hunter, so idk... What's with these Portland boys? Don't they check their Facebook 1,978,234,986 times a day like I do?? Well, at least Gerbe Derby does...

Anyways, I've come to the conclusion that blogging purely on the game is kind of boring. I like being ridiculous way, way, way too much.

SO.

I'm throwing this out there:


UMMMM WHAT??

Tommy, what the hell were you thinking when this picture was taken?? I'm not even going to talk about that RIDICULOUS hat.

Um, and what are you doing in that area of Buffalo???

Hmm, well, Shelby, that's for you.

But anyways, the Panthers? Stephen Weiss? Gregory Campbell? Not too intimidated. But Derek, seriously, forget that your friends with the later. Please. No nice guys tonight.

So I guess I'll miss probably half of the game. I've decided that if they're winning, maybe I won't watch the rest of it?? Because, I don't know, maybe it's me. I kind of take it personally when the Sabres are sucking, and get all bummed and mope around the house... I swear, if I slit my wrists, I'd covered in blue and gold goo. So maybe I won't watch/listen, just to see if that works... But I don't know if I can hold out like that. I've never intentionally ignored a game...

We'll see. Go Sabes!

He's a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll and little bit hockey... and is that the ghetto of Buffalo?

I honestly couldn't tell you, because I don't explore many areas of the city, just because it's outside of my suburban comfort zone, but it's very close to the East Side, which is kinda sketch, I guess...

With that bad-ass hat(hello...flames!!) and that attitude and the stick across the shoulders, I could see him wandering around the Fruit Belt with 20's & 50's hanging out of his pockets!!

I'd have to agree, but at the same time I have to appreciate the fact that DAMN he looks good, if I had 20 bucks I'd definitely give it to him.

Hmmm, maybe if he's a bit cockier. But I don't think he's big enough to fill those britches. =]

Oh, believe me, my wallet and bank accounts would be emptied.

OMG WHAT HAS THE NHL DONE TO THOMAS?!?!

Shelby Rose said...

It is Derek's fault that he was drunk and (dis)orderly and friends of his took his picture to put on the internet. HIS OWN FAULT.

Hmm, well, Shelby, that's for you.
Thank you!!! (:
And I don't know why he's in the 'ghetto' part of Buffalo in that photo...At least he got out of there untouched otherwise me (and Ashley, of course) would've had to go kick some tail.

That's what I want to know...

HAHAHA... You'd probably stand a better chance at defending Tommy than his closest teammate (proximity, wise), because that would be Derek.

That might possibly be the most random picture of a hockey player I have ever seen.

Amazing.

Isn't it, though?? I just love it.

I had to Google Map Sherman Street. What the heck is Thomas doing in that part of town?
