Week 13 – WJC Over; Back to Post-Holidaze Reality
TIME TO SNAP BACK TO REALITY
So? How was your Festive Season? Some enjoyed it immensely.
“Guess who’s back?
Kass is back.
Tell a friend.” Or at least notify the NHL Substance Abuse Protocol Officials. No truth to the rumors he asked for Grant Fuhr to be his life coach in Edmonton.
Also back was the WINTER CLASSIC
Cops were busy confiscating weapons at the game
They should have confiscated this one.
A WJC TO FORGET
Not the best Canadian effort. The team had no identity. You can blame the player selection or the coaches, but I blame the Canadian losers in the stands who wore their NHL teams shirt to the games. These two even got air-time in Sweden. Seriously? Jets & Canucks jerseys to the Canada-Sweden game? Puh-leeez!
There are always a few interesting fans who sit at the glass and get some TSN time. Observe:
First, a tribute. Lost some legends recently. Dickie Moore played in the NHL 1951-1968 (mostly with the Habs) winning 6 Cups and 2 Art Ross trophies (96 points in 70 games ’58-’59.) Would have been a solid OFHLer.
Also passed away, Meadowlark Lemon of Harlem Globetrotters fame. If you ever saw them it was a great show and Meadowlark was the “Clown Prince.”.
The POTW honours for week 13 are shared by two California tenders, Quick & Gibson each registered 10 points for the week.
SO WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK?
- Big week went to Cordy with 47; went 3-0 and moved 6 points up on Fulty (F has a game in hand)
- Derko goes 3-0, moves within 2 of Fulty
- Orv has stinky week with 17
- Stifler has solid week with 28 and registers his 1st ever multiple win week with a 2-1 record
- Weird stuff: Haukster went 2-0; EZ beat H by one point but went 0-3
- Pick-up is a lottery again – it’s a 4 so it goes to JBR
- HOT: Derko 10-1-1
- NOT: EZ 0-8-1
MUSIC FOR STANDINGS
This one’s for Erty; biggest ever fan of U2.
That’s it for week 13. All the best in the New Year. Let’s keep it Sociable.
