june 6, 2009 - game 5 pittsburgh at detroit

present: becca, sherri (lychee cocktails)
in transit: nesse
regrets: kenny g & graham

pregame sentiments-
becca: the new hockey night in canada song sucks arse.  i bet if you play it backwards there'd be a message from satan.

sherri: just thinking about pittsburgh (rebecca has a hunch sherri's still thinking about being cross-checked by malkin).

6:35 - scott oake interviewing mike babcock.  rebecca's distracted by mr. oake's hairplugs.

6:36 - uneasy cbc interviewer elliott friedman talking to marc-andré fleury.  rebecca thinks he's undressing marc-andré with his eyes.  sherri: he's that guy who never gets referred to by his real name...last game the other commentators called him 'scott'.

6:41 - EXTREME CLOSE UP OF SCOTT OAKE!  he's definitely had a little nippy-tucky.  sherri: he's showing his softer side in these interviews.  i wish kendra was here to see this.

6:47 - secret #1.  vanessa calls.  she is en route.

6:47 - scott oake chats with zetterberg.  *swoon*  sherri: look at his hair, how it flows in the wind, when he's skating away...wait, we're not supposed to be thinking about the enemy like this...  rebecca: it's very shakespearean, the whole star-crossed lovers thing though...

7:02 - vanessa arrives.  vanessa: ozzy! ozzy! ozzy!  rebecca: that is NOT the password.  discussion about the return of datsyuk.  rebecca: here we go...

7:05 - appreciation around the room for elton's 'saturday night's alright'.  

7:07 - sherri switches to a plastic cup.  everyone wins in this situation (1- ability to pour doubles and triples, 2- better stability, 3- no broken glass)

7:08 - sherri confirms: yeah, it's a double.  also, i'm having a shot every goal.  who's gonna do shots with me?  it's alizé's super easy!
