Week 15

RAMBLINGS

Some wise person said the musical offering should be at the beginning of the week review so that it can play as he scrolls through the jetsam & flotsam of the blog. So here goes…Here’s the song I think of every week when I put my ch-ch-ch-changes on the board. Thanks, Ziggy. And so long to Alan Rickman as well.

  • Fulty has the big week with 43 points and jumps past Derko into 2nd
  • Rolphy now only one point of 3rd
  • 3-0 weeks for Fulty, Cordy, Rolphy, EZ, & T-MAN
  • Derko has 3rd best week (39) but loses both his games
  • Orv’s 26 points were good enough for a 2-1 record
  • It’s been awhile since a 6 was rolled, but it happened and Haukster gets the pick-up for week 15
  • The Great Turtle Race is all tied up at 2, as Stifler takes this week’s match-up.
Even Hans Gruber finds humour in that.

NOW THIS….

You can just imagine the conversation….

lucic

……”So….you want the T-shirt to say ‘SIGN LUCIC’?  That’ll be $45. Are you ever going to wear this again, or is it a door prize for a hockey pool?”

The Finnish WJC kids will be immortalized in a stamp. (does anyone use stamps anymore?)

Looks more like Kapanen is the lead on the Finnish Short-Track Speed Skating team.

POTW

There were lots of 7’s this week, Kane CH, Kopitar LA, OEL of Arizona, but a rookie gets the honours this week.

That’s it. Remember that Week 16 is an extended OFHL week due to the all-star weekend (and for ease of scheduling.) The week runs from Jan 18 to Jan 31.
