Team Choke

March 31, 2007 @ 09:32

I was listening to Leafs Lunch on am 640 yesterday and Jeff and Bill had Bruce Garrioch as a guest. He's a writer with the Ottawa Sun and often appears on the Hockey Night in Canada hot stove.

Garrioch started his segment by telling Leafs Lunch that Ottawa's All-sports radio station had a call-in segment yesterday morning and Senator fans were urging their over-rated, piece of crap, choke artist hockey team to throw their game against Montreal last night.

The reasoning was simple, Senators fans hate the Leafs and they want them to miss the playoffs. And to tell you the truth I'm not surprised.

On the surface you'd assume suck ass Senator fans would want this out of spite alone because you wouldn't figure the Leafs would pose much of a threat to anybody in the playoffs, but it goes beyond that.

Ottawa fans may be stupid, but they aren't dumb. They know what a spineless, gutless hockey team they have, and the last thing they need is another match-up with the underdog Maple Leafs in the playoffs.

It probably wouldn't happen in the first round, but Ottawa fans know that Toronto has a tradition of over-achieving in the playoffs and they don't want to take any chances of having the Leafs upset somebody, and then tangle with their gang of gag artists.

I don't have to go over the history because any hockey fan is well aware of the Senators miserable history when it comes to the playoffs - and it was deliciously highlighted last year when Daniel Alfredsson, with the Senators playoff life on the line, stood there and allowed Buffalo's Jason Pominville to skate around him for the series winning shorthanded goal.

No doubt the Senators are a distasteful team to begin with having developed players like Hossa the eye picker and Havlat the kicker - but their fans are even worse.

Senator fans are collectively sickening. Like that weasel you can't stand at work, the type that would give a tourist the wrong directions just for the fun of it, the type who would swear at your wife if she was wearing a Leaf sweater. Arsholes basically, big goofy arsholes!

To tell you the truth, I get to this point of this essay and I don't know why I even bothered. Ottawa fans will never change, and neither will their hockey team.

Now enjoy this video. Appreciate how Alfie takes a feeble swipe at Pominville while he swoops around him.

Given the situation, Alfie "the captain" should have done anything he could to stop the Sabre, including holding, hooking, high sticking or tripping - after all, the Senators were on a power-play, taking a penality wouldn't have hurt.

I guess Alfie wasn't thinking.

Thanks Freddie for putting up that video! what a series that was...and proved once and for all that Ottawa and their fearless leader Danny really are just a bunch of wanna be stanley cup champions. Not too mention their goaltending is probably still just as suspect this year as it was last year.

I read the content on websites before I leave a review. If I have zero to say of the write-up topic, I don't leave any criticism. And I'm keen to read someone else’s comments on that post as well. Because I can find very helpful ideas among the reasonable comments. I might have posted “Superior blog! Amazing posts!” then I could well be spamming your blog. I also develop a site, one thing I might do everyday once i signed on to my web site is find out more about reviews to my posts and physically approve or reject these observations. Keywordluv not simply brings you more commenters. It boosts your position in search engines because you’re not simply on countless “dofollow blog lists” but additionally on a number of those “keywordluv lists”. Many thanks, Angela

Was indeed the booing of Sarah Palin on last night's 'Dancing With the Stars' incorrect? do not like Sarah Palin, seriously do not invest in her publication. Don't end up her Facebook mate. Don’t vote for her but you should incorporate some good manners, booing is actually so irritating.

In order to properly spin comments, you must be creative and even more creative. Convince the person that even though the statement is very bland, it's still content they want visible on their Bet Boxing site.
