white flag

Just a week ago I was so hopeful. I still had belief, but to be honest all my faith has been dissolved in the last three losses, especially Sunday's. It was another curse of the 3rd jerseys. Who can play against that much bright yellow? Much like Hockey Rodent, I place most of the blame for this terrible stretch run on Torts. He laid my grievances out so much more expertly then I have the words or inclination to, but I too feel that Torts has lost the team because he's simply a giant jerkface.
As usual most of my allegiance lies with Henrik, and I just feel awful that for whatever reason the Ranger's have pissed away so many of his really decent efforts. Now all of us have to suffer the indignity of Atlanta being higher than us in the standings. Ugh. I did pick a convenient time to give up on the Rangers because I'm away from my beloved cable box for the rest of the week. I'll actually be in Toronto Saturday night. Not at the Molson Centre, but how do you think a "Sloppy Seconds" chant will go over in a nearby bar?

This blog has been doing quite well this month, especially as I've only put up three posts thus far. Thanks to the fabulous new blog by Christine for the shoutout. If you haven't stopped by it's the best one stop shop for all your good, great and ill-advised Henrik goodies. (ps Christine, please email me at Thanks to everyone who has dropped in here or with the Peepitals. My little sugar athletes have been getting a lot of attention lately as I imagine the masses are as eager for this Easter's entries as I am. I wish I could have tried again this year, but what with the move and everything I just didn't have the wherewithall. I did however manage to create the blueshirt version of those fast skating little bunnies and put together this smaller diorama for one of the Peepitals' most fervent fans, 4-year-old Timmy. He's featured here (in bunny form) on his off-side in an PHL all-star faceoff along with Datsyuk, Gaborik, Ovechkin, Backstrom and the still-missed Prucha in his current jersey. Timmy's great friend Sonia put up these great photos of the little guy enjoying his new peep pals. Next up on the mallow menu is Avery v. Fatso, a fine project for the off-season which regrettably should be starting in about two weeks.

I hope y'all are enjoying the start of spring, and cheers to great holiday (whichever one you celebrate!)

Thanks ladies! Thankfully I never have to make a Torts Peep. The bunnies are just too cute, it would never read.
