I apologize for not posting in so long. It's not that I haven't been paying attention, it's more that I haven't had the wherewithal to write. They are plenty of things I've loved over the last month. Who couldn't love that first game against Pittsburgh? So seldom does it seem the hockey gods are smiling down upon the Blueshirts, but that night they not only grinned but pointed and laughed at the Penguins. Of course that same team has since gone on a tear and Crosby's been re-annointed as best thing to ever happen to the NHL. Whatever. I did notice something odd regarding number 87 recently. Did any of you think it queer that Sid used Dubi's nickname exclusively and repeatedly in his postgame remarks last week? Isn't that privilege reserved for teammates? or lovers? Well, as an American, Dubi has never played for Canada and he certainly has never been a Penguin. I'm just saying it struck me a being a bit too familiar.

Here's another question. Is the Devil's disastrous play so far another gift? As much as I'd like to see them scape the bottom of the standings, none of us want a repeat of the Flyers' resurgence from a few seasons ago. I'd like the Devils to play badly enough to shake out about 22nd in the league. As blasphemous as it sounds I reserve a bit more empathy for the Islanders, especially after we eked out 4 points from them this past week. I hardly want to be battling them for a playoff spot, but I thought for sure they be more of threat this season. Still you gotta love that they're only win in the last 18 was a shutout over the Devils. Another divine intervention?

In other favorable news, The team finally won a couple while I was in attendance. Yeah for raised sticks! Now if only I could get my section to stop pissing and moaning all game and actually enjoy success, everything would be brilliant. I did have a fun fan sitting behind me at the last game. He uttered a great out of context comment: (all breathy) "Mmmm, Gorgeous dump!" In a game filled with potential double entendres I never thought of that one. That was the Isles at the Garden, after which I met (and thanked) Puck Daddy himself, Greg Wyshinski. He was a delight and very handsome if I might say so.

Hope all y'all are enjoying the holiday season. Here's to a great December. I'm wishing my honey Andrew Garfield good luck with the critics in the ensuing award season. Oh yes, and I'm crazy about the Heritage jerseys. Question is who to get? Maybe Santa will decide for me!

Disclaimer: I'm all about man on man action, just maybe not Dubi and Crosby. Now, Talbot and Prust, more my style!
