Happy Thanksgiving from Nervoustime

Jets vs. Islanders, great electric guitar anthem woke us all up. first nervoustime event for rebecca's new cat smokey - who is not physically in the room but hopefully she will check out the game at some point.

Jets currently undefeated and I'm wondering what their longest season start streak was.....

Matt's friend Kyle arrived wearing a jets jersey (33 Buff).

rebecca has created a spreadsheet reflecting astrological signs of the current top fantasy players....this is available to all nervoustime fans if you comment - we can get this to you. we are also thinking of getting an email address. She has discovered Roman Josi (Nashville) who is actually quite the babe...and a gemini.
Roman Josi, Swiss and loving it!
Eric has arrived with news that the liquor store is open. The cat also came into the living room! Discussion of the new 3-3 overtime. discussion of mark stuart 'all about the community"

it's 1-0 for the islanders. apparently the jets have been doing well in the second periods this season so let's see what happens.......i wonder how michael frolik is doing...

power play coming up. thank goodness the ref is wearing number 27 as the goal looks like it has been waived off / what is the yellow ribbon about? predictions of who will score for the jets, schifle,  petan...

another goal for the islanders...three points for john tavares. quick review of jim slater's adventures in switzerland, we miss you jim! schiefele scored, kyle called it.  "he could be the next teemu" - rebecca on ehlers.

Clutterbuck and Byfuglien just had the collision of the weekend. Buff's fine but Clutterbuck is in the dressing room.

Regardless of what happens today, it was a great omen to win the first two games and you can sense the camaraderie on the ice this year between the Jets.

"Clutterbuck sounds like a kids name" - Matt. "Well, at one time it was" - Eric <deadpan>

The Islanders have a great organ player story (and look at that organ!) We should really petition to get a real organ player in Winnipeg.

Ladd with the tip for the goal! Or it might be Buff.  3:2 Islanders. Clutterbuck having issues with his skates.

"That's the second time Clutterbuck has killed the energy after we scored. He's messing with us." - Eric. I really appreciate that kind of hockey insight. Don't you?

3 minutes left and it's Nervoustime. Tavares with a penalty shot. PAVS WITH THE SAVE.

New moon in Libra: Opportunities abound so let’s summon patience and kindness for all.

1:30 left empty net. "Not terrific ice". Empty net goal and the Islanders take this one. The Jets burned too much fuel during the start of the season. Tomorrow's game will be the test. Get some rest, boys.

St Louis in Winnipeg. Capricorn in Aquarius.

St Louis @ Winnipeg. It's 6 degrees, North wind 15km/hr. We're a bit late watching the game due to technical malfunctions. Present: Nesse, Eric and me (Reb). Shout out to Jay in the basement!

"This would be a great game to win." Amen, sister.

We just had a hell of a time ordering from Skip the Dishes. It was my first time ordering online because I don't trust the internet and I prefer to talk to real people over the phone when ordering curry. But there's a major silver lining - we can track the gps of our driver, who's named James. And we will be his 99th. I suggest we make him a sign in case he has a delivery before ours "Happy 100th Delivery, James!"

Can we just talk about the electric energy in the arena on Tuesday night? The "Who's your captain" chant will go down in history. What a smart crowd we are. Poor Big Joe. Dude deserves the C. Seniority counts for shit in professional sports, doesn't it? I made a sign for Buff on St Paddy's Day but he wasn't playing so here it is, if you read our blog Buff this one's for you:
James is on his way and we are, in fact, his 99th delivery. 
This living room is a Ru-Paul-Drag-Race-spoiler-free zone because I haven't watched any episodes yet. Eric's talking about Carson Kressley and I'm ignoring him.

It's been a scrappy period so far. Is Stuart hurt? #MarkStuart4Life Good penalty kill by the jets. Now we've got a power play and it doesn't matter. End of the 1st.

We're waiting outside with the sign for James. He looks surprised, we get our soup, give him the sign. "Deep down, I think he appreciated that". We hope someone makes him a 100th sign at his next stop.

Not including empty net goals, these two teams have only been playing 1 goal games "for the longest time" according to Dennis Beyak.

The soup is outta this world. Tom Khat from Thida's. I can't describe it without using colours.

Adam Lowry goes to the box "that was a bullshit call".  Replay, okay maybe not. But uncharacteristic of Lowry. Usually an incredibly smart and articulate player.

Captain Backes gets the 1st goal of the night and we couldn't be more upset over here. Reeves gives Halischuk a dirty hit to the head. Camera scans to Papa Reeves in the stand. At first we thought the camera guy might be racist, but they're related. It's cool, people.

"Thorburn backforms"

Trouba hits the post and that ping can be heard throughout the galaxy.

St Louis has 3 players with birthdays on December 23rd. "That's a lot of Sag, man". No, it's Capricorn! Michalek, Oshie and Lehtera. In fact, over 25% of the team are Caps. Incredible, no wonder they're leading in the west. We have more feelings on our team. Lots of Aquarians. And that's fine by me. They would actually make great lovers, these two teams. "Instead of a shoot out they should have a scissor-off", Eric. "They are lesbian lovers?"

Aside from the inappropriate commentary, this period is actually really exciting! TJ Oshie gets a shot and Pavs dives to make the save. Amazing save by Pavelec. Back in the other end, Scheifele with a short-handed chance. No goal yet by the Jets. Back to our end and Pavs saves the day. The crowd chants "Pavy, Pavy" and I love chants of encouragement.

2nd intermission and we're going for a walk.

It's beautiful outside, you guys. Poke your head out. Do it. The wind has lightened to 11km and I'd bet it's coming from the west now.

4 minutes into the 3rd and it's sitting at 1:0 Blues.

We're commenting on the new Dodge Caravan commercial with the mom giving her kids some hands-free attitude. "Naw ah, you can't come in the car you filthy children."

There's a Passover movie coming out. About Moses. "And Batman?" "Adam West? I want to see Exodus starring Adam West", Ness.

FU MAN DREW! Stafford ties it up with a beauty goal. We have a hockey game, ladies and gentlemen. "The hero of the moment" - hockey/love analogy.

The crowd keeps chanting Pavy and my heart goes pitter patter. Who thought I'd be calling Pavs the underdog? Well, I am. And I'm rooting for him.

Halischuk looks like he's been stuck in a bunker in the woods since he's been back. Amish much? THAT BEARD.

31:19 hits for the Jets. There are those feelings coming through. 

Text from Jen Funk 66.

Stempniak, our newest Aquarian, nearly got away with a get away. But the refs have stuck their whistles in their pockets. Are they paid OT? The clock is running out and we are going to the 4th period.

Lots of chances, but it's all down to the goalies. Shootout. Nervoustime.

Wheels: No.
Oshie: Yes.
Stafford: YEAH!
Tarasenko: Denied.
Ladd: YES!
Steen: Game on the line, and Pavs with the most territorial save ever.


Everyone's packed up their leftover soup for lunch tomorrow. Btw, tomorrow March 20 there's going to be a solar eclipse AND a supermoon. New moon in Pisces and that's all good news for the Jets.

Love, Nervoustime

They're looking Beardy out there.

Welcome to an impromptu meeting of the Nervoustime gang to Ste Anne, Manitoba!!

Present tonight, Vanessa, Rebecca, Jen, Smoko(the dog), and Thunder and Francis (the cats).

Shout out to Darcy at work, Kendra at home (who sadly had to cancel her visit), Eric in the air and all other nervoustime members with busy, busy lives.

Almost 5 minutes in the first period without a whistle. Maybe this will be a fast game. We've started late so are watching a little behind time. AS soon as we catch up we'll be making homemade pizzas. Seems like pizzas happen often when I invite people over to the house.

Come guys. Hutchinson is in the net. No need for all the defensemen to also be in the net. Vanessa gets really pissed off when players try to sell being hit. Players at this level should not let this be a part of the game.

Vandevelde scores. Not liking the chaos of the Jets defence so far.

Andrew Ladd certainly is getting pretty beardy. Nothing on Thorburn's beard though.

Sweet rebound as Mathieu Perreault ties it up!!

Watching the Safeway Goal and win contest we are reminding that thanks to Mathieu someone was one goal away from winning a million dollars not so long ago. I feel like her first name was Gail. there we go. Gail Macdonald from Brandon.

Let's talk about how great Chris Thorburn has been doing. 3 goals in the last 3 games. I'd say that his was the best line in the game against Pittsburg on Tuesday.

Power play for Philly. Could have sworn the announcer just said 2 minutes for interference but no. It is of course interference.

Great save Hutch, with 2 guys in your net. Probably couldn't even fit a puck in there.

Mention of the all-Star game. We are all in agreement that it was the most boring game of hockey we've ever watched. Although I was trying to learn a new crochet technique for a border on a baby sweater so that was probably quite helpful.

Wayne Simmons scores. I have never liked that guy. He's just always been a really dirty net player in my opinion.

Jets powerplay!!! Goal Pereault. Apparently we haven't scored a powerplay goal since he's been gone. We sure are happy he's back.

Period 2 no purpose.

The pizza distracted us mostly till now. 6 minutes left in the second. Just witnessed some Hutchison Gold on this recent penalty kill.

It appears that Pavelac has put his laces back in. Very interesting. Whenever Pavelac is winning and not saving like a mad man, I like to shout, "Laces out Pavs, laces out." As support. What will I do now?

We all may have just had a sing along in Buff's honour. "Every day I'm Byfuglien"
I like when he passes the puck in front of Philliy's bench so they have to wait a couple more seconds to change shifts.

Third period.

If you know me you know I wear a Sweatshirt that has a bright orange crest on the left that says loser. I find that often when I wear a combination of my loser sweatshirt and Jets Jersey at the home games, we win. Vanessa suggests it's my superman Clark Kent Combo.

Shoot. That was a gorgeous goal. alone in the slot. You really should never miss those.Way to Schenn. Fuck.

Michael Hutchison saves the day and a big Buff moment. The fire is there. 14:37 left. A lot of nervoustime here.

13:07 very aggressive penalty kill by Philly. Gosh when is the last time Wheeler, Little of Ladd scored a goal?

2:28 and we're happy to see Perreault is still out there.  Empty net. Damn. Another empty net goal.

I feel like it would be a better ending at least if we could use this 1:21 to score a goal.

Just realized it's our old goalie in net for the flyers. Ok. Game over. Oh no. Sorry it's Steve Mason. Never heard of him.

Good night from Ste. Anne.

Wait hold on. If I drop Denis Beyack's name people will thin I'm freinds with a god. Free shit here we come.

happy new year: winter classic 2015

blackhawks vs. capitals, happy new year everyone from ruby. the crew is slowly arriving and we have an incredible variety of cheese related foods to eat - jen made a cheese ball, there is a brie/cranberry mix and for the lactose intolerant there is a vegan cream cheese based bean dip.

we realize while we would regularly cheer for the blackhawks cheering for washington would be better as a jet fan. discussion of what a blackhawks jets playoff series could be like, 'could you imagine patrick kane in the city that much?"

did anyone party with the new york islanders last night?

no score and once again the question 'does this game count' was asked.  we are checking the's seven degrees, extended forecast - on sunday it will be 15!

eric has arrived and washington just scored. eric fehr!

does this game count was asked again and karla and megan has arrived. 'i love that guy' - vanessa on ovechkin. shoutout to reuben and lois in courtsite, arizona.

discussion of google plus. or circles or whatever and washington scored again. still the first period.

power play

 and the hawks are on the board. assist by patrick kane and we are pleased to announce that patrick kane is now on our fantasy hockey team! we traded nathan mackinnon and our first round pick for next year but it was worth it.

we would like to have a hockey rink in the empty lot and preston and arlington and for next year have arlington host the winter classic.

jamie begins chanting 'crosby's better'

patrick kane apparently arrived listening to the rick ross song 'big homie" . (none of us have heard this song but we will listen to it laer).

apparently puff daddy is on that song though and tracey begins playing it. we don't like this song and are each making mix cds for patrick kane. karla's will start and end with 'call me maybe'

washington penalty.

don cherry's advice for the year ' love your stick'

jen and becca like dc's suit. karla 'there are no good suits when worn by don cherry'

who is this playing music, nobody knows.....we can't look it up because we are behind in the game and not able to check our phones., one guy in this band has the same touque as me (or beanie as michael would say - hey michael!).

eric ' day time fireworks are a waste of fireworks'

rebecca 'there are so many things wrong with this game. it's too warm, fireworks in the day time, who is this band'

next year apparently we get the heritage classic and the we are planning out dream classic- six am, your parents drive you, (s o here are fireworks because it is sill dark) you can bring your own mug.

karla brings a tray of meatballs and serves us each individually. eric 'I've can say i've never had a bad meatball'

Jen Funk now blogging. Did you know that at the annual winter classic Winkworth fiesta whomever blogs also gets the best seat on the couch. Here's a holiday problem. There is too much delicious food on the table and we are all quite full.

Reb here now. Lots of discussion right now about the World Junior championship. Just realized that tomorrow is Friday. Darn I thought I had one more day to do less.

Discussion around vegemite and what the hell is mincemeat anyway. Back when there used to be suet in everything, ya know. Other weird things we've eaten.

"I'm done trying new things" - Darcy's 2015 resolution.

Dad (Greg) is getting Smoko some booties. She's hiding under the TV table but you're not invisible Smoko. We all see you.

"They need to stop moving that camera around', Eric (who didn't drink last night).

So far, it's been 6 minutes and Smoko has only 3 booties on.

Booty fashion show!

"Thanks for the pretzel socks, Rebecca". I never gave him socks. "Well, you're getting credit for the socks." If any of our readers have lost some pretzel socks, Eric has 'em.

Smoko went out to try her booties and even though we're so excited for her, she's happy to have them off.

2:2 tie game if anyone is interested. The video work is pretty lame. Are they using hand-held cameras?! Everyone likes the toques though.

Jaime has an idea for a xmas holder decoration but that makes Kendra and I very nervous.

We're very upset about the WFP Year in Review quiz. Where is Mr. Michaelchyshen?! This year's quiz is by Bart Kives and it looks like multiple choice. WTF WFP?!

Versteeg looks uncomfortable. Getting consoled by his teammates.

Chicago has more love to give than Montreal. As a team, at least.

"Don't put your hand down there between those pillows", warning from Vanessa.

Now Smoko is having her paws tickled.

Rave reviews of Winnipeg's Cat Alert Lady, "quite the lady", according to Karla.

REF CAM! who thought of That ?

9 Minutes left in the third and everyones really happy that Darcey's finally agreed to take some leftovers to work.  Also, at nine minutes remaining it seems the game could go either way....two very dangerous teams for sure.   Megan announces that she doesn't want to offend anyone, but owning a house adjacent to someone in her family is NOT something she would do......what if her raspberry bushes became unruly ? 

five minutes left and we are caught up to the actual time - 2-2 is the score. i'm quite sure this will go to a shootout and we will get to see patrick kane at his best. karla is proudy wearing her carey price earnings.

discussion of pillows. attachment appears strong.

washington powerplay and jonathan toews is upset.

broken stick but a goal anyways.

capitals win which is good for jets fans, they all shake hands, we would like that at all games.

happy new year love nervoustime
