I know it’s been a long time - I shouldn’t have left you… without a dope beat to step to, but I was having some holiday hullabaloo with the fam. Had my brother in town which was cool. We rocked a lil Buck Hunter, a Coyotes game, hit the zoo, the whole deal. I’m back on the Bourne’s Blog horse today.
The Coyotes game we went to was great. Major thanks to Doug Moss for taking care of my family. And congratulations to Shane Doan on his 1000th career game… that’s crazy man. My Dad played 14 years and got to 962, and my father-in-law-to-be played 14 years and hit 958 (though it might be worth noting that they combined for over 300 playoff games too, compared to Shane’s 32, but still, wow…. his achievement makes me feel old, I feel like I remember his whole career.)
Far and away, the highlight of the game was the blanket giveaway – we had three girls at the game, and nothing ruins everyones mood like cold girls. So that was sweet.
*mumbling* AlsotheCoyoteslookreallygoodthisyear,Ireallyamimpressed… it turns out I WAS WRONG.
We have a gay superstar. Only, not on this continent. One of Rugby’s biggest stars, Gareth Thomas, has come out.
You must be pining for a new column from me, it’s been ages. It’s tough to focus on hockey around the holiday season. Let me tell ya aboot the players take on how that goes. (If you like the article, feel free to comment or click “recommend” – I’d love to contribute more to their newpaper than a column every two weeks.)
Name-dropping: I sent Goligoski a text complaining about his fantasy hockey performance of late (he’s been hurt a few times), and he told me to trade his stock while it’s still worth something, cause he sucks.
What other sport do players so consistently turn to self-deprication? I have to believe it’s because we play such a humbling sport. Just when you think you’ve got it figured, some guy puts it through your wickets, you toe pick and chip a tooth. Or this whole “nobody’s bigger than the game thing” is really working out well, one of the two.
Oh, and then there’s this - the puppy dog re-creation of the Snooki punch from that high-quality TV drama “Jersey Shore”. Pure, unadulterated win.
More to come later – I gotta catch up on the work that earns me money! Thanks for readin!
