Why us?

Why does it seem that milestone events seem to happen to some of my favorite Washington area teams? Yesterday "Roid Boy" Bonds hit his tainted milestone moment against the Nationals. Now us Nationals fans will be forever linked to the ultimate baseball Jackass. How much does that suck? Sad thing I could feel it was going to happen weeks ago. Much like when Patrick Roy needed one more win to pass Terry Sawchuk for most NHL wins, who did it come against? My Beloved Washington Capitals. And what happened on opening night in Madison Garden 2006? Brendan Shanahan was two goals shy of 600. Can you guess what happened? I know that milestone moments happen, but why does it have to happen to us?

What did you do on your Summer Vacation?

Maybe I should say "What did you do or going to do for you summer vacation?", since summer is not over yet. Now that the sadness of the Senators loss in the Cup finial, personal stuff and a vacation with my lovely wife, DCSC, is over I will be posting again. First, back to the question. Vacation! Here is what I did.

Not bad from a stock Jeep? Unfortunately it took me 3 tries with the pressure washer to clean all that mud from the radiator. I think DCSC was relieved to miss our last trail ride because of it. That Virginia mud/clay really sticks to stuff. I don't think I will ever get rid of it all.

So, What did you do or planning to do?

Here is a couple shots after I went through.

I think I need a new Capitals License Plate ring.

Now that things are getting a little back to normal and hockey season is around the corner I will be posting a something at least once a week.

Sens Biggest Little Fan

If this doesn't pull at your heartstrings, well you don't have a heart.

The Finals are Here!

OK, back in September DCSC and I went to Vegas. While there I decided to put a bet down for the Stanley Cup final. My belief back then was that it was going to be an Anaheim Ducks and Ottawa Senators in the final. I have learned my mistake when it comes to betting. At least for me. Never bet on the team you want to win. It always goes the other way. For some reason the Betting Gods hate me. So being the prudent Chanuck that I am, I thought I would hedge my bets. If for some reason the Betting Gods hates me, the team I pray to win, will win. Otherwise I will be up a couple bucks. Lets hope I am $120 short in a couple weeks.

And the winner is!

The winner is Prince hands down. It was no contest in my book. Michael Jackson was in the running only cause he had help from his sister Janet; Ms Jackson, cause I'm nasty. Better luck next year Michael, but I think the results will be the same.

When is a touch a touch?

As noted in a comment by Caps Nut about one of my previous posts, one of the Senators did carry the Wales trophy. I saw this and heard on XM that it was Spezza. His comment was that it was not the ultimate goal, but it should still be treated with respect. This got me to start looking around.

Now my personal superstition started when the Capitals carried it and acted like they won Lord Stanley.

But as I was looking I found a few more examples of what to do and what not to do.

Check out the 2003 cup champions the New Jersey Devils.

Can you guess who won the 2002 Stanley cup from these pictures? East West

Senators Salt the Slugs!!


the First one bitch. NBC what the Fuck is your problem! If you don't want to broadcast the entire game why do you insist on screwing with the hockey schedule (insisting on afternoon games on weekend). For those of you north of the border. When today's game went to overtime, NBC switched to Versus. Unfortunately the hotel DCSC and I are staying at does not have Versus. What an annoyance. Lucky for me we are close to ESPNzone. After informing the kid controlling the TVs that the game switched to Versus we were good to go. I was even congratulated by a few guys (slightly sauced) for getting them to switch the channel. There was something good coming out of the switch. I was able to celebrate the win with fellow Senators fans, far from home.

Now to the glow. Don't know what to say other than WOW! Alfie did touch the trophy, but he did not pick it up. So my superstition radar is not in overload. I take one bit of satisfaction that the Devils touched it in 2003 and still won. Four more wins to go. It is going to be real tough against the west. One good thing is that the Duck and Dead Things (red wings) are going to kick each others ass. Might be helpful for us. Here is hoping.

Go Senators!

Just don't touch it.

Tonight the Senators have a chance to close out the Eastern conference championship. I have one word of warning from a superstious person. Take a cue from last years champions, and don't touch the Prince of Wales trophy. This is not the goal. WE WANT STANLEY!

Who's house, Sens house!

Thanks to a 5-2 and a 4-3 overtime win. The Senators own the HSBC Arena. It feels good, but it is not over yet. Anything can still happen, but it was nice to hear that prior tonight, the Slugs were undefeated when leading by two goals. Way to go boys, keep up the good work!
