winter classssic!!! happy new year!
so far 'does this game count?' has been asked twice.
woah we love the zach brown band! so great. so many people still wearing hats!
smoko has been snacking. she will now refer to this house as 'the snack house'
'looking good mike babcock' = vanessa
we are all cheering for alfredson and the snow......everything is going slower. darcy 'i wish they would do more of these'
joffrey lupul is so hard to think about without being reminded of the lannisters.
greg arrives to tell us about shannahan yesterday 'old players old rules'
i'm on my second mimossa.
\geebus this laptop is \gigantic. Jen now blogging. \they action is definately slowed down with all the snow.
We've spilled the first drink of the day. Don't worry though it was only water. Kendra is giving a shout out to the former Camrose Kodiak Mason Raymond. Her parents are big fans.
Really not a lot of shots yet.Fran is thinking that a lot of kids these days haven't actually played outdoors. I have actually played hockey on a pond. Here's a poll for TSN and Hockey Night in Canada. How many people have actually played hockey outdoors.
It would appear from Rebecca's comments today that she is still pissed off at Russia. Politically that is. Historically that's her homeland so that's why she may be so upset. Fran says they left Russia because they weren't progressive enough.
I really like the brown pads and gloves on the goalies today. Half way through the 1st period and I'd say Toronto is spending way too much time in Detroit's end.
Drive safe home after this game fans there is a lot of snow coming down.
I am being mocked for rehydrating with water today. But I promise I will have a coffee after this next glass of water. Quick look at what the weather is in Detroit right now. Only -10 Celsius.
Long conversation about Flouride.
Alfie is in his favourite spot for the first power play. Seems really strange to be watching hockey and the Jets aren't playing. Good thing Mark Stuart's picture is sitting in front of the TV watching with us.
Now we are discussing how we are all going to our friend Kyle's house to use the hot tub soon.
There's a bit too much emotion right now over player love on the TV.
Eric and Kevin have just arrived. and now Kevin is leaving. That was quick he needs a New Year's day nap.
second period. our breakfast was delicious - i've declared triscuit as cracker of the year, already. no score the temp was minus ten last time we checked i still haven't had a coffee and i've had three mimosas and i'm wearing a redwings hat.
Talking about Teppo now, Rebecca here. We were so close to him yesterday during the Jets game. GSP walked by him in the underground last year and still regrets not asking him for a photo. Consensus is last night's Jets game was incredible. Monty is one great goalie. And we got kisses from our neighbours when we arrived. ANd that WAVE!
Nobody is really cheering for the Leafs. Fran has a sweeping statement: "This is a game of Canada vs America. Toronto is Canada. We should ALL be cheering for Toronto." I'm the only one to be convinced, but I'm now cheering for Toronto.
Coors now makes cans of beer for shot-gunning (or "easy pour").
Bernier picking his bum, or warming up his hands. 'I'd think they'd all have battery powered mitts", Kendra. Bernier is wearing a tuque with pompom: the room questions whether the pompom is regulation. Or the whole hat?
Wonder if Scott Oake is still standing alone on the roof of the stadium still?
"This game seems to be going by really slowly", Kendra. "That's because they have to keep stopping to shovel", GSP. Or maybe we are all a little hungover and I bet some of the players are too and it's okay to slow things down a bit sometimes.
Everybody loves Smoko. We're all recounting stories about our neurotic pets.
WELCOME HOME TO DOS (the Prairie Sky cat).
Talking about sleep patterns, sleep-pattern-compatibility.
Alfie (we love you ALfie) scores the 1st goal. "Out in the open, all by himself!"- Jen. No, he didn't score it was actually Lupul and that's so funny because he seems like a jerk.
"Can we all do Hockey Night in Seder Town next Passover?", Jen Funk. The answer is yes. Nervoustime Passover 2014.
Happy New Year from De Blogging Mama,
Here is a joke for you. . . . .
Yitz Chak ee night in Canada!
[above with a Yiddish accent]
What New Year resolutions have you made for 2014^
Thank you to Gregory Charles for cooking an extraordinarily delicious brunch of pancakes and sausages for the Classic Hockey celebration.
I am cheering for Toronto because it is CANADA.
Gift exchange is turning out to be fun.Hockey cards, hockey stick candy canes, Jets stationery kits.
Paper rolls of activities, all related to hockey! Five feet of activities and colouring.Try a word search. Get lost in a maze.
A speedo is a budgie smuggler in the land of Oz.,to quote Darcy.
Becca is wearing her furry hat to keep her ears and head warm. Kendra is wearing Vanessa\s Detroit baseball cap.
Beca has found an error in the work search.Byfuglian is spelled wrong. How could this happen\/ Becca thought that it ws a mistake, but lo and behold, it was not.
Snow in their eyes, and the wind in their hair.
Has anyone resolved to quit smoking this year? Graeham has. Yay! Vanessa is going to, as well.
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year !
Lots of love. . . . . . . . . . . ..
Unveiling the new hockey song. One thousand songs were entered. Wow! The title is "A Game Going On". Mazel Tov to the winner. Can/t wait to hear it.
Good luck to everyone who is quitting smoking. Contact us at Nervous Time for support and encouragement.
that above was all ms wink first ever nervoustime mom blog. becca had the idea to watch more classic movies for 2014.
rebecca asks graham how he is doing just as the third period is about to start. graham back to school trying to get into law school. eric applied to law school but decided to go to flight school he is now a pilot.
we haven't done the year end quiz yet........
mostly gsp is rooting for blake wheeler to make the olympic team.
so the gold medal game is feb 23 at 7 am. greg wonders if jimmy howard is a republican.
gsp has a hockey game tonight at 10 pm at the highlander if anyone wants to see another game today, their team record is 9-8-1.graham also scored his first goal of the season last week!
wondering if montoya does yoga.
toronto scores and fran starts singing o canada. 'toronto is canada's team' - they just showed kris king!!!
kris king threw a puck at gsps bro during a skills competition.
kris king has a lollipop
vanessa wants the same jacket as babcock has.
rebecca was doing a link and i was reading tweets and so we got in trouble from fran for being on our phones.....less phones for 2014?
so 2-1 toronto. so we all got hockey cards and stickers they are so cute. they are jumping around in the crowd now.
eric 'the first wedding social of the season' and we have now two spills for 2014. so ya eric's bro is having a wedding social jan 25 at bronx in ek - let us know if you are interested in tickets.
this game is so slow darcy again wishes they did it more.
oh ya we left our signs at the game last night 'i hope the teppo sign has a good home'. darcy wants the third period direction shift to occur in every game and graham reads out all outdoor games upcoming outdoor games, one is pens hawks.......it's march 1.
greg thinks some havent played outside before.
This is the best game for the fans. Everybody there is singing Journey.
Best new cam angle of 2014: hockey foot cam.
Fran says "Detroi-yit", just like Ron McLean.
Toronto player yawning in the penalty box. The Abdelkater ties it up! Detroit fans high five. "That's a Graham Smith-Peloquin goal right there".
All of the sudden the TV goes black and there's some weird sounds coming from the kitchen and this HOUSE MIGHT BE HAUNTED! Fran goes to investigate and says it's just the coffee maker.
It's a double-edged sword when it comes to watching CBC hockey: we are happy to not watch the Moxies commercial; but we miss the Tim Hortons commercial. Ok, only some of us miss that Tim Hortons commercial, and it is turning into quite the controversy now.
What's happening over at the other side of the room? The Winkworth parents should really consider getting a dog. Greg/Dad is totally in love with Smoko.
We're starting the Year In Review Quiz! Go team Nervoustime (we're all on the same team). Rebecca has pen and pad ready. 'Tradition!" Rebecca. "You're too young to have tradition" Greg.
Greg knows all the answers to the year in review and is giving hints. No hints allowed!
Winter Classic OT. 2 minutes left. Shootout. Alfie on the backhand but the puck skipped away! JVR, he didn't shoot it either. Datsyuk. GOAL! Lupul. Goal. T.Tatar. lost it. Bozak. Goal.
"but Canada wins!" - Becca "nobody wins when Toronto wins!" - Ness
Ok, back to the year in review. "How mature do you think Scott Oake is" - gsp
Announcement of the USA olympic team. Eric thought the kids sporting the jerseys were the players."They look a little young, eh" Wheels made the team! everybody cheers
