When you get there, you will already be there.

20190917 My Best Friends Girl

10 Bullets
  • Boqvist and Nylander looked very good for the new guys 
  • Gus looked to be going about 3/4 speed, which is fine. He looked good anyway. 
  • Dahls has looked better 
  • Versteeg did not convert on a breakaway. I wish he would make the NHL team, but other guys yesterday were better 
  • Highmore (Bolland) is a good player. 4th liner on CHI though.
  • Carpenter missed in OT, but he was OK/Not bad 
  • I don't like Sikura on the team. I hope he does well, but I don't see it 
  • Saarela is a good player too 
  • BO Dan and Gilbert probably don't make it at first, but BO looks like he might be a keeper  
  • Perlini looked just like he did last year, which is not necessarily bad

On to DET!

20190909 A little Benny

It was fun to watch a little hockey this weekend.
Three rookies on the team to start? Boqvist is the long shot of the three, I think.

20190906 Transformer.........All of it.

All that hype for that fucking game. I wish they both would have lost.

20190905 King Louis

Yeah.........Benny Goodman. It was a cover.

20190830 Gimme Shelter

Maybe a rerun (Hey hey hey), but not this version.

20190823 Low Life

Bringing the younger kid up for year 2. Thought I'd have a song from when I moved up for year 2.
"Low Life....No life at all.....

20190812 Something

For the new dad

20190717 no song......a little content for the middle day.

It's the middle of summer. Our Hawks have made a few moves this off season and look to be an improved team from the one that Quenneville had to start with last season. An interesting question is how good would this team be with Q behind the bench? Not happening though, so, Colliton gets his shot at a full season. After a horrible start last season, he righted the ship and had his team contending for a while. Colliton will have what looks to be an improved crew of defenseman, especially after De Haan is ready (if he is in fact not ready to start the season). They did not have a problem scoring last season and likely won't this season either. The addition of Shaw and Carpenter kind of address the defending, but not because of Shaw. I don't remember Shaw as a defensive minded player, but he should help the overall team and hopefully with the same impact he had previously.

What are the forward lines going to look like? In no particular order, except the obvious order Kane Toews Alex Strome Artem (he gone now 7/16) "Power forward" ZACK SMITH (a new era had dawned) Shaw Saad Drake Ryan Kampf Nylander Perlini(?) Kubalik Kurashev Dach Sikura 4TAN Ejdsell Quenneville - NEW unknown GUY via trade or signing.


D look fairly obvious especially when De Haan is ready, unless one of the younger dudes has himself a camp. There could also be a massive trade, which I hope does not happen, or a signing of that Toronto cast off. Franson anyone?. Dahlstrom and Slater (if still around) should fill the gaps until Calvin plays. Goalies should be much improved even if there is an injury. It's a circle rosterbation.

Neo was by yesterday. Why?

20190709 Big Time Sensuality

You never expect Bjork.

20190627 Pictures Of You

20190516 What A Wonderful World

The Blues lost a playoff game in OT.
Ohhhhhh Yeah.

20190507 Suspicious Mind

FYC did a nice cover back in the day, but this is better. More Elvis to come.

20190506 Jeopardy


20190429 - My Adidas

More elementary school humor. Remember what ADIDAS stood for back then?

20190426 Touch Of Gray

There are better songs by these guys. Uncle Johns Band comes to mind. This one brings back memories of playing bubble hockey with OC at the Landshark in EL.

20190417 - Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

Hey Ryan McDonagh,
Yzerman left you. Ask the French guy for a trade. Stan will give him something for you. Cheers.

20190330 Space Age Love Song

A little MUSE for your enjoyment

It's a cover.

190318: My pulse pumps out a beat to the ghost dancer

My eyes are dead and my throat's like a black hole.
And if there's a god would he give another chance or 
An hour to sing for his soul?

20190314 Mean Street

They won, but not by enough

20190309 Cum On Feel The Noise

Dragging the bottom here.

20190308 More Tommy James

Well, Have to give Tommy a better chance of wining here. However, as I watched the Mony Mony vids, I think he may have won that too. Anyway, Tommy wins this one right?

20190305 Summertime Blues contest

Lot's of music artists have covered this one. T-Rags(Rex), Rush, Setzer just to name a few, but these are the original and best. Performances just 10 years apart.

20190228 - Shakin' All Over - which is better?

Bet you didn't now it was their song.
The Guess Who
The Who. Maybe the best live album ever

20190227 ANA - CHI GDT

Memories of Anaheim before Corey Perry.

20190227 Is this a punk song?

20190220 - Another Brick In The Wall 1,2 and 3

It's Ex's playlist time.

The Theme is 70's rock > then '60's Rock

20190122 Boogie Shoes

Heard this song today (yesterday). Was not a bad effort from KC

20190120 Live and Let Die

So, That's the end of Bond. Here is my ranking and it's not in the order we posted.
1. Dr No. Iconic. It's the James Bond Theme
2. Live and Let Die
3. Goldfingah
4. A View To a Kill
5. Skyfall / The Spy Who Loved Me
Honorable mention:
The Man With The Golden Gun, You Only Live Twice, Die Another Day, Diamonds Are Forevah, For Your Eyes Only, Thunderball.
Moby did a OK version of the James Bond Theme, but it was not an opening credit song and he also did the Bourne theme, so discounted (hat tip to Hi Fidelity).

20190117 For FFF's eyes only

Probably not on the list, but for all you guys taking the morning train, here are her sugar walls as a Bond song singer
This one, however, will be on the list.

20190116 Shirley Bassey Day

Shirley Bassey has done three Bond songs. All good ones. One or more will fit into our top ranking, if not the top. With three she gets her own day.

20191115 Dr No

Going to do a James Bond song ranking here, but did not finish my ranking, yet.  Just not that important, eh?  Anyway, starting off with the first and arguably best James Bond song as it appears in probably all the movies (except maybe the non Eon ones).  Will get into the non James Bond Theme songs as the week rolls along.


20190111 Oh Well

Great cover of a great song

20190110 another binary day

Screw you John. I'll write one, make it disco, and the bass will be featured......people will love it.

20190107 Girl on Fire

What did you think of The Drake?
Did you miss Sikura?
Did you like Davidson?
Pretty good game all around.
When will Henri be back and will he get to play?
Saad is a good player.
I don't think Crosby likes playing vs Toews

Flame on!

20180104 Content Alert - from VDM "Colliton showing he still has a ways to go before he matches up with the big boys like Trotz."

Gustav Forsling cannot keep playing the way he is.
Gus had a terrible game even though he got an assist on Kane's flubbed shot goal.
Barzal is one of the best players I have seen in a while.  The only forward that kept up defending him was Toews and one time (from memory) Kane.  Strome tried, and contained him sometimes.
The 4th line is not good.
Delia is good.  If and when he improves on the rebound control, he will be legit (he already may be)

The PK......they have the low slot covered with two guys and they just let guys walk to the net.  Seabrook did it at least twice.  First time, It's on him (I think).  Second time, I think it was Forsling that didn't challenge and Seabrook realized it but it was too late (Delia with the save).  I get that the goalie takes the shooter, but guys can't just walk to the net.
