First, I'd like to thank everyone for stopping by the holiday open blog. I hope you had fun. :)
Second, I'd like to ask anyone else if they find it odd that Overstock.com's slogan is "The Big O"? Dude, I really want to shop THERE!
Thirdly, I submit for your consideration the hockey song. Yes, Virginia, there is a hockey song. Friend Irish, Friend C and I went to a Washington Capitals game on Saturday and rediscovered this musical gem. (May I say that it was the weirdest hockey game ever? The score was 7-4, which is odd if you know hockey, there was a fight in which like 30 people were penalized and one ejected, a goal by the Buffalo Sabres was recalled after review, there was a "score change" in the middle of the game, etc.)
Hello out there, were on the air
it's hockey night tonight!
as the whistle blows,
and the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps,
and the players bump, This I don't need to know
and the fans all go insane. As if they didn't start out that way
"Bobby Scores!" Who the heck is Bobby?
At the good old hockey game!
The good old hockey game!
it's the best game you can name!
And the best game you can name,
is the good old hockey game!
with skates a-flash, a-flash? Is that a word?
the home team trails behind.
But they grab the puck,
and go bursting up,
and they're down across the line.
They storm the crease,
like bumblebees, When did bees start playing hockey?
they travel like a burning flame. On ice? Won't it melt?
see them slide the puck inside, My dirty mind at work here.
it's a one one hockey game!
Last game in the play-offs too.
Oh take me where, the hockey players,
face off down the rink,
And the Stanley Cup,
is all filled up,
for the champs who win the drink!
Now the final flick,
of a hockey stick,
and a one gigantic scream:
"THE PUCK IS IN! THE HOME TEAM WINS!"
At the good old hockey game
And not to steal glory from her, but Friend Irish sends me this email this morning.
So, I took my hockey ticket stub out of my coat pocket and was reading the back of it.
The holder of this ticket assumes all risks and danger of personal injury and all other hazards arising from…including specifically (but not exclusively) THE DANGER OF PUCKS AND STICKS, OTHER SPECTATORS OR PLAYERS, OR BY THROWN OBJECTS.
Yeah, they used CAPS for that. Dude. Are spectators going to throw OTHER SPECTATORS at me?
