april 26

live blog 2 from rebecca's. 

first of all, just changed the comments to allow annonymous  posting. please post a comment. 

drinking: rebecca: water, sherri: pres choice ginger ale, kendra: tonic

game 6: carolina and new jersey. we haven't watched any of this series yet. (tsn)

"don't bother making a prediction tonight. it's fruitless"

rebecca: deciding who to go for

sherri: turning the fan down

kendra: seriously awaiting your comments

all of a sudden we remember that bad goal from our previous entry. rebecca and kendra totally going for new jersey.

rebecca "carolina shouldn't have a hockey team. winnipeg should have a hockey team before carolina." 6:33

rebecca starts drinking, 6:34

sherri: "it's going to be a very physical game" 6:44

new jersey penalty: 6:47

"call him marty bro. there were no anthems either, did anyone else notice that?" sherri

commentators indicate how warm it is in the building. this apartment as well. 

disappointment: carolina goal, 6:54

"harsh words exchanged by the devils bench"

review of the food: leak soup and fresh bread: "excellent" kendra "really good" sherri "needs more chicken" rebecca

love that they keep showing the angry shot of m. brodeur, kendra

"carolina has totally dominated" sherri

"channeling 1975 with that one"

love that they are now playing "i saw her standing there", kendra

new jersey power play, 7:05

"once i get my glasses, it's going to be like HDTV" rebecca

one shot on goal in the whole power play

"i think new jersey seems to be scrambling, but i haven't seen the rest of the series." sherri

fish update: all still alive 

fish food update: they will be fed peas ("that could be a separate post", rebecca)

sherri: cleaning out her wallet, 7:08

kendra: considers cleaning out her purse, 7:09

another penalty coming up for carolina

"did you hear about the coach, which coach was it one of the coaches threw a water bottle at a fan. he was suspended and they say it's going to sweep." rebecca

"we should google that" sherri

done: it was the rangers. 

rebecca mentions teppo numinin for the first time, 7:18 "i wonder if teppo twitters. who knows finnish?"

kendra not impressed that kelly hrudy has not updated his twitter account since april 20th. 

kendra "i'm tired. i'm having another donut"

newest favorite compliment: "has a bit of an aroma about him?"

kendra twitters "scottoake how old are you?" / rebecca takes a picture

2ND period:

another penalty, 7:33

"did we figure out which coach....?" sherri

"new york" r/k (in unison)

"he is like a ballet dancer" (r on brodeur)

"he played for another team that i cheered for" sherri

"it was calgary" kendra

wikipedia informs that he has actually played his entire career with the new jersey devils. 

kid with beard, spotted in the crowd: 7:36, sherri chokes on a donut

"came out of there with a biscuit" what? "i like it better when you say puck" sherri

rebecca claps

kendra "i haven't got a text message in 33 minutes" 

eric staal: goal carolina

"i figured out why the kid was wearing the beard. like a hockey beard maybe" sherri

"i bet that bearded kid plays a mean banjo" rebecca

"they should call a time out" sherri

new jersey scores the 3rd goal: eric staal.  agaaaaaiiiiin...

sherri wants New Jersey to call a timeout.

Ward squeezes.

kendra: i think the devils are as tired as i am

"everything that staal touches tonight is turning to gold."

kendra researches eric staal and notes he spent a night in jail on the night of his bachelor party, july 21, 2007. 

rebecca: shout out to ivan at madison square safeway

sherri: he's never been to europe

kendra: this game is very depressing for me

rebecca (on the tsn commentator): let's see if this guy has a twitter

sherri: do we care what this guy is up to?

rebecca: he might know how old scott oake is

kendra (kept saying 'oakes', sherri didn't correct to be polite): kelly hrudy is going to think i'm an idiot

one minute left in the second period, 8:05

eric stall rush, zubris softly to the front, 14 seconds in the period, latch on, skate through centre, content to drive it in

kendra, loves when announcers refer to how much time left "in regulation" when the score is 3-0 as it creates hope for all

rbc centre. discussion of what RBC stands for. obviously royal bank and not radio bible camp

decision: none of us are really invested in the series. 

sherri to r: "is this going to affect anything in your life?"

r: "just to see who they're going to play."

kendra: "i'm kind of going for detroit."

teams in order we'd like to win stanley cup (no need to mention all)

kendra: vancouver, anaheim, boston, detroit, new jersey

sherri: vancouver/calgary

rebecca: pittsburgh, vancouver, chicago, detroit

graham text: still eating, is there a second game on tonight?

sherri: i'd like to know shots on goal

kendra: this live blogging is more fun when we are happy

sherri: i gotta say a huge disappointment in this hockey game

rebecca: switches to family guy

back to hockey: 8:35

SO MANY PENALTIES, 3 minutes for cross checking

another goal

sherri "this is not good. not a good game at all."

ten minutes to go in the period

sherri discusses switching goalies

r: "they've been too spaced out. it's not that MB is playing badly. wait until we see the shots on goal. they are just bound to get one in."

kendra "i actually liked carolina once. remember that year they went to the final?"

r: how old are they?

s: probably five years for sure

r: here come the fights. fights of desparation

announcer: "just setting the table for another game seven."

sherri: I'm not even sure if i want to watch that game

(review blog, 8:46 - 8:51 and realize it has been a good night and we did like the kid with the beard and the food)

sherri: i think if it gets to the point when it's the hurricaine team versus someone else. i think i'm going to cheer for someone else.

rebecca: i have no love for carolina. 

bearded kid shot again, 8:58

45 seconds to play

30 seconds

the people in raliegh all on their feet. 

the caniacs will bring you home.

sherri: the caniacs? that is the lamest sports team fan name. 

rebecca: well. they deserved to win.

kendra: this is what we get for getting emotionally invested in another series. 

martin: we still still think you are a great goalie and you let in four goals. you know what? you were trying and were keeping that team afloat.

scott oake: we're still wondering how old you are. 


until next time: xo. kendra, sherri, rebecca
