nervoustime regular season debut: october 10, penguins vs. leafs, oilers vs canadians
first game watched together as the nervoustime collective this regular season, we watched a preseason game at mark's and ate some fantastic deluca's food there and bought a nervoustime ice cream cake but we were too full to eat it. had been blogging and then lost one period of comments as the computer started and stopped.
quick overview of things discussed in the blog that was unfortunately deleted: mr. belding, malkin as ugliest guy in the nhl (says mark), teppo numinin, graham engaged to be engaged, sherri drunk, gogol bordello, folk fest line up 2010, flaming lips, pat quinn, helmetless players and hair gel, how much people hate the leafs, how graham has an emotional investment in the canadians, neil young and bob dylan, how we were supposed to be at this game, matching ties, wilco or calexico, chilli with ketchup, how we're watching the next game.
present: mark (meditating), sherri: having another drink, mark: as well, kendra: more club soda, graham: thought we were at sherri's, rebecca: in a pens shirt, vanessa: phoned at 8:17, on the way, agreeable to sit on the floor.
vanessa arives : 8:24, mark comments on her sexiness. "you can't be sexy all day." vanessa in new earings. possible competition to graham's ring for "bling of the night". vanessa also brought gingerale, sourpatch kids and cheezies.
graham is on his third beer. "you guys, we will be at hifi tonight"
sherri "it is a little early for the snow."
8:41- club soda spill of the year!! 5 person clean up! blackberry currently in a bowl of rice.
8:57- sidney crosby talks about that greatest game this season...yep, he;s talking about this game!
final score: pittsburgh-5, toronto-2
8:58-ritualistic gatorade shaking by random hockey player
9:00- yes it took me 20 minutes to type this....rebecca: "but you spelled ritualistic right. so it's alright".
9:01 - sherri almost lights the place on fire.
game 2: montreal at edmonton.
scott oake is looking especially creepy tonight.
final score predictions: mark 5-4 oilers, vanessa 6-4 oilers, kendra 4-3 oilers, sherri 4-2 oilers, rebecca 5-3 oilers, graham smith-peloquin 3-1 montreal.
khabibulin injury discussion. groin injury? std?
oilers powerplay........"not alright" graham
nice montreal shot
"who's helmet's on the floor" sherri / mark "who wore a helmet tonight."
discussion of barchet's grocery, stale candy?
mark is talking about the devils "they were so well rounded." gsp "lots of depth, yeah."
no shots on goal on that power play.
very close one for the oilers "i thought it was there." mark
rebecca's eyesight is improoving.
"are you wearing contacts under your glasses?"
mark on the new scotia bank savings account "i kind of like this commercial."
graham leads discussion about cd they made when the jets were about to leave.
graham is only ever buying coaches like this in the future "i feel like i'm in bed right now"
"that's some new jersey devils hockey." "they do play the trap now." "there is a lot of hockey talk going on."
sherri: drink four
graham: also on his fourth
sherri: "keeping up with graham, yes!"
lets' talk about khabibuelen caving under pressure (led by sherri)
graham: he's won a stanley cup
mark: he willl never cave again. i think the oilers goalies get too much critisism. they need to play as a whole team.
graham: so we're all going to see mr. belding later
mark: i'm going and setting him up with my friend sherri sugar
on hi fi: sherri says "i feel creepy." graham on die machine "that seems like a bar that would be in wayne's world."
still no score 5:25 left in the first, interesting considering our predictions of a high scoring game.
"you don't yell at rebecca when she's making you a drink."
mark on sherri's drink: "that's one for the ages."
9:43- first period over. kendra and mark want to go to on a double date with hilary duff and mike comrie.
9:49- first kelly hrudey sighting...thoughts of him naked cause for a moment of silence especially with the tie..." room agrees they like kelly hrudey.
10:01- score 1 nothing edmonton
10:02- roar of disappointment from the crowd...sherri is the worst blogger
mark: i forgot to wish jr and ziggy a happy birthday,
sherri: i wish them all a happy birthday
NEXT OILERS GOAL
mark: everytime a goalie makes a good save i think of the jets. GREAT SAVE ESSENSA.
graham mentions the jets wives carnival for the first time, 10:12
ANOTHER OILERS GOAL!
notice a super cute tanned oiler
goal post! 10:19
montreal goal, we also have whipping cream (organic) the canadians are on fire
"that's right mark, you can't donate the puck in this league"
my favorite part about winter is when apartments get super hot: kendra
sherri opens the window
mark on his 5th beer
graham: only brought 4
scott oake interviewing scott gomez
mark is in pie mode
the pie was awesome.
sherri: price is pretty good for a goalie
vanessa: it would be a sad day to be traded to the canadians
mark: the only thing worse would be traded to toronto
13:19 to go.........
haven't figured out the super tanned oiler
montreal goal (?)
mark: i told you edmonton can choke
graham: they're going upstairs
didn't go.....into the corner/out of the corner?
"did you see him look at the camera and wink? i got it."
pat quinn: tie of the night
"that was a beautiful save"
"he's a choke" sherri
anyways, montreal scored, for real.
sherri: what can he do, he can take a drink like the rest of us
mark: watch the goal though his own player tipped it in
sherri: in the playoff's he's a choke
rebecca: they're still going to win
mark: it's not khabibuelen it's the whole oilers they are all chokes
sherri: he does that every playoffs, he chokes
final two minutes
get it out of there.......
oilers trying to hold this lead final minute of play here we go empty net in his own corner over the top blocked right back in come on guys says graham gomez at centre these are the guys you want out there, two devils, hal gill, tipped in front, around the boards ten seconds one last chance...................
just missed the empty net (where's zetterberg?)
what a finish!
mark: that was fantastic
graham: montreal canadians are just too tired that's the only reason they lost.
sher: anyone want to do high fives with me
rebecca: i don't know if i have any final thoughts this game
graham: anyone feel like going to lo pub
vanessa: still picturing kelly hrudy and scott oake naked in those ties
comrie interview coming up but we're out......kendra as tired as the canadians
xoxo, gray, kendra, mark, ness, becca, sher
