Anybody else think it may be time to move Buff off the top line?  Brouwer's played well with Toews and Kane before, in pretty much that same role.  Move Brouwer to the first line, and skate Buff with Sharp and Hossa.  Depending on what Philly does, that'll either get Buff or Toews and Kane away from Pronger.

I thought everyone thinks that.

WELL WHY DOESN'T EVERYONE SAY IT?!?

Actually, I said to anyone who would listen during the first intermission last night.

Everyone on Twitter was also saying it. Well, they typed it. But it was a prevalent theme last night.

Looks like Tom Thibodeau is the new coach.  I will have to read what KD has to say before I make my opinion on the hiring.  Would James or Wade want to play for him? 

Same question. To me, a layman, it sounds like a good, solid hiring. He's definitely got a better coaching acumen than VDN but do players like him?

Slaky vindicated.

I believed in you, buddy.

Your support is what got us through this.

So the wife is leaving the country for a few weeks with the kid before I head over there to meet up. In the meantime I'm going to be getting very high and playing lots of Xbox when I'm not out getting shitfaced.

We'll have to try that posse stuff again. I want to get those achievements.

I'm in. I got some rockstar achievement last night. It's one of those you get by killing someone with that achievement, so if any of you play with me, you can kill me once to get it.

How do you get it in the first place then?  Do you have to be playing in a game with a Rockstar employee?

it probably spreads really quick. In FIFA there's an achievement just like it - you have to beat someone on XBox live who has the fever or some such shit. I've won like 10 total games in my FIFA online history and even I got it.

I would think being 99 is pretty much being in "grave" condition.

At that age, you should buy your bread by the slice.

I laughed. 
MODS!!!!

What? If Al Gore's relationship qualifies I can go ahead and throw in Mr. Wooden who's in "grave condition". Isn't that insensitive of the doctors to say he's in grave condition? Surely there's a better synonym for shitty.

We get it Slak, you thought of an awesome pun, and you didn't want to be beaten to the punch.

Dirty pool, old man.  Dirty pool.

Inspiration struck. I made a move.

So was Israel justified in doing what they did?

I don't think either side holds a particularly high moral ground in any of these issues.

Yep.  This is about right.

Part of the issue is that the Israeli blockade is causing suffering.  However, it's about he only thing they can do for their security.  Both sides have blood on their hands and they can both go fuck themselves.

I agree with all of this. So everyone screaming for justice is full of shit.

Though it's nice to hear my wife's uneducated Norwegian friends blame America for all of this.

How are Norwegians uneducated?  Aren't they all socialists or something?  C'MON!

Up north they lay around in their parents' log cabins after graduating high school and sling uninformed opinions about the world outside their own miserable existence.

Can we talk about how an "overhead" camera that is used for official reviews would have the goal line hidden under the crossbar?  I don't buy the reviewed goal as being good, and shame on the NHL for not taking a geometry lesson.

It was a good goal on every replay.  And I still probably hate the Flyers more than Blackhawks fans right now.
What are two things that are completely unrelated, Alex?

I'm with Powen.  I normally don't care much for soccer, but if you can't get into the spirit of something as cool as the World Cup, then fuck off.  This is one of the coolest sporting events in the world.  It's about 48 times cooler than the Winter Olympics and abut 146 times cooler than the Summer Olympics.

So, having said that...any chance that the US actually makes it out of the first round?  Is Slovenia any good this time around?  I'm sure England is going to clobber The US, but is anyone else a factor?

Also, I had no idea that Slovania and Slovakia are actually different countries.  Who knew?

The best result that the US can (probably unrealistically) hope for would be a draw in their first game vs England.
That said the US has a decent chance to make it into the second round.
And then they will immediately lose to Germany.


I can't see them beating England. The back line is terrible. They looked better in the second half vs. Turkey but the first half was a disaster. I think England is going to tear us up. I hope I'm wrong.

They could play balls out and do well; or they could flame out. Just depends on who shows up for us. That's the mindfuck of being a US fan; we have to wait four goddamn years to either be incredibly surprised or amazingly disappointed.

England is going to come out cannons blazing. They are going to be strong in the air, yet susceptible to individual and creative play. Either Donovan plays his ass off and Dempsey brings his finishing skills, or it could be a really ugly start.  This Torres kid could be a serious factor late in the game.

A few choice words to John Terry or Wayne Rooney should be enough to get a red card. That could be a good strategy.    

I was actually thinking the same thing. If they can consult with the Hawks for some good mindfuck strategies they might be able to pull one of those two clowns into some tomfoolery.

Perhaps the pressure on Rooney to deliver a WC to England is the USA's biggest ally.
