hey from arlington. vanessa has returned from the nightshift, becca and kendra are also here and so is the springtime. temp went up to six degrees in winnipeg and the snow is slowly melting. current discussion of strombo as the new host of hnic. 'ron was the guy who kept everything together''george is not a peer to anyone like pj stock or kelly hrudey is'
you have to at least be a referee.
'they are hockey players without a stanley cup trophy'. so yeah, we aren't happy about this. vanessa specifically notes george went down in her books as soon as he started referring to himself as 'canada's boyfriend'
who would we say is canada's boyfriend. vanessa: 'david suzuki. he is the land's boyfriend. or william shatner.' i say jt or sidney crosby.
it's actually 7:42 and we ordered food from thida's thai, devastated that spicy noodle is closed on monday. looks like the food is here. there is a pretty low chance that we will stay up for the whole game as nervoustime supports an early bedtime. but we are going to do our best to rock it for the first two periods.
speaking of rocking it we finished first place in our fantasy hockey division!!!! currently in the playoffs playing tonight against the bangers, hi scott. score was 5-4 last i checked, for scott. nervoustime real life is we have three avs on our team (mackinnon, barrie and landeskog) but we also want the jets to do well obviously.
the jets have a 9.4 chance of making the playoffs. thanks to nervoustime's fave accountant, tom, for informing me of the (i wish i could say rise and) fall of these stats on a daily basis.
also thanks to rob rouseau for letting us know this restaurant is good.
ness feels like the strombo thing is a punk as does the missing malaysia airline.
'it started with the theme song.'
'ron mclean is worth it.'
so game story. montoya is in net. paul statsny is out. i have bet on the avs, actually.
we should talk about mark stuart - 'that's the happiest deal' - becca. 'he has such a good prescence on the team.'
seeing as this game is in colorado, i wonder how many jets smoke weed?
becca 'this is the best soup i have ever had' the soup is super good. announcers describe landeskog as mr everything which is also how becca feels about her soup 'this can do no wrong'
anthems. anthem singer is a mennonite! slight 'true north' heard. so game on. so far no score. so great to have jim slater back tho hey? rebecca is making cookies and john albert is playing! PA parenteau is hurt....second injury against the jets this season. penalty coming up. colorado on the power play.
'don't be afraid to take the hit because it might hurt less than trying to avoid it' - hockey love analogy from rebecca. 'i am going to write a whole book about hockey love analogys'
too many men on the ice is our fave penalty. jets keep the avs to one shot on that penalty 'totally dominating' second power play of the game for colorado. rebecca 'who is mark stuart's girlfriend?' ness: 'better question....who should be mark stuart's girlfriend?'
better question 'can you smoke a joint outside this game like as if it is a cigarette?' 'do they have a dispensary in the arena?''can you bring in your own food?' soooooo many chances there but bogosian is in the box for penalty #3 of the night for the jets
there has been a 4th penalty now and still no score but we heard about rich peverley and we most def send our thoughts to you and your families and all the dallas stars fans out there. hopefully everything works out okay.
that was a great play by kane. how did that not go in. frolik needs a goal.
ness comments how frolk's gf having used to date petr nedved as 'like going from bruce willis to ashton kutcher'
breaking: oh ya so there are mysterious snow shapes on arlington, like far away for a person to reach. we think it might be magic.
the q and eh on the jets fave music was great, interestingly tho becca thought mark stuart made all the jets playlists and wondered why he didn't get interviewed.
becca's cookies are DELICIOUS. vanessa 'i bet i could eat these cookies faster than you can make them. and then announces she has to go.
this game is so late. she has to wake up in seven hours, 4:30. i should personally wake up at 5:30. neither of us has folded our laundry.
the masters is beginning on my birthday and apparently it is this year on a wednesday.
MACKINNON SCORES cue the whitney houston the jets need a pick me up.
new health ideas: gargling with oil, juicing banana peels. so vanessa is going......rebecca loves the music in colorado 'ccr! fuck yeah!
cute that they just said 'tyson barrie loves the jump in'. power play coming up for the jets. fantasy hockey update, bangers: 7, nervoustime: 6. next batch of cookies are ready.
byfuglien scores. little gets a career points high with that assist.
oh i forgot manitoba's slogan was 'canada's heart beats' remember how great that song 'heartbeats' by the knife is? amazing save by montoya, who doesn't love that guy and why isn't he our starting goaltender but i am tired.
and there is another goal for byfuglien from frolik. ooooooooh. brian little just broke his earlier record with an assist as well 'a little goes a long way'tsn announcer just begins discussing evander kane's energy....well. that let's not get too magical.
one min left in the second. oh ya credit to the penalty killers in the first period. does anyone remember the women's can us hockey games in the olympics 2002 where the canadian women would play almost entire games on the penalty kill, something to look up for sure.
woah. eleven second left in the period and colorado scores.
alright. i'm going home. becca will update for the rest of the game.
So everyone's left to go to bed. Moonchild here, as per usual, reporting the last part of the game. I'm taking this opportunity, now that I'm alone, to attempt oil pulling. Has anyone else tried this crazy fad? They say it cures everything: gargling oil (sesame, coconut, olive) for 20 minutes. So far, so good. 2 minutes in. My jaw hurts a bit.
Beginning of the 3rd period. 2:2. Parenteau's out for the rest of the game. Trouba gets sent to the box right off the hop.
I went to Costco today and spent $70 on matzah, coconut oil and an orchid plant. You won't find matzah any cheaper, people (5 boxes for $10.49). And Manischevitz, no less. Why is matzah so expensive? I'm going to make my own this year (declaration).
Ok, it's only been 6 minutes, but I really want to spit this oil out. How can this be good for you?! What am I doing and maybe I should have researched this a bit further.
Whoa, distracted by scuffle on the ice. Keep swishing. Don't swallow.
Disco music is now playing in the Colorado arena and the playlist keeps getting better and better.
11 minutes left of oil pulling: 15 minutes left in the 3rd.
MacKinnon loses credit for his goal (and thus a blow to our Fantasy Hockey team). Things are getting busy on the ice. Enstrom just got save of the game. Great game for Toby-don't-call-me-Tobias. We're shorthanded again. There have been too many penalties this game.
5 minutes left of oil pulling and even though I want to stop, I'm inspired by the pace of the game and will stick with it. WWTD?
Vanessa and I watched a hilarious movie the other night called Bad Milo, all about guy and a pintsized demon that lives in his asshole and, when triggered by excessive anxiety, forces his way out to kill all the people who've pissed him off. It had a campy 80's vibe, and it was super funny and everyone needs to see it and the chill the fuck out.
The organ player is playing Green Day. Amazing. Let's all move to Colorado.
8 minutes left in the 3rd and it's getting desperate.
I can spit out the oil now! I rinsed and brushed. My teeth feel slick and I had to blow my nose right away. Those are positive signs, right?
I love Jim Slater.
I'll keep with this oil pulling for a week and see what happens.
Is there anyone who works harder than Michael Frolik? No.
3 min left in the 3rd. It's nervoustime.
Breakaways, off the posts, all the excitement is happening. We're going to OT.
Oh shit Matt Duchene slips one in past Montoya and Avs win this one. 3:2 Colorado.
"This game had a little bit of everything". But not enough win.
Stay positive out there. Leave your oil pulling comments and suggestions at the bottom of this post!
Love you guys, xo nervoustime
