GWJHL Week 9!

Do you use the advanced controls any Certis? any particular tips? I haven''t watched you play yet, so I don''t know what makes you so good besides Luck of the Douchebags or something.

That''s why he''s only good late in the game. He''s half douchebag. On his father''s side, I believe.

Which side was the schmuck again?

I swear Certis can turn it on like a switch. Same thing he did to me.

Oh, it''s not quite the same. Marlin didn''t squander a lead, he just caught up to tie before I put the game away.

I use intermediate controls, nothing fancy. I''ve taken a number of people here through hockey boot camp, the key is not trying to always check the guy who is moving with the puck for the net, it takes you out of position and you''re too easy to avoid. Aside from that the real difference maker is a bit less quantifiable, you have to anticipate where the other guy is going to pass or when he is going to shoot so you can intercept. That skill seems to make a huge difference in a lot of games.

Douchebag out!

I can''t seem to get my guys to intercept the puck even when they are in the way of a pass. But taking yourself out of the play by checking is definitely critical. They never seem to recover fast enough from a missed hit or a poke check, which is very frustrating. I also seem to have no idea what I''m doing on break-aways.

I always encourage my opponents to come in for The Big Hit with supportive comments like ""throw some weight around, wuss"" and ""you''ll be peeing sitting down for a week with that kind of pansy play.""

Sir, you wound me.

I did not change the intensity with which I played one BIT, up 4-1. No more than I changed it when I went up 3-1.

I played just as hard KNOWING your proclivity for late comebacks. And I kept trying.

I submit, sir, that you were rusty at first and that you kept getting better and sucking in more and more energy, much like Doc Occ''s Tritium energy dealie, until there was precious little left in the Fleet Center for my poor Bruinies.

I''m happy with the game I played. You can''t take that from me. YOU CAN''T!

<runs from room crying>

My main point, drama queen, was that I had to catch up to you rather than take an early lead so it wasn''t quite the same thing.

Here, take a hanky.

Is it clean?

Do I have to give it back?

These things I must know, before I commit.

In all seriousness, I''m a tad surprised you didn''t comment on my blatant attempts to keep you jabbering about stuff rather than concentrate on the game. Usually while playing hockey and baseball I speak in tangled tourettes-like exclamations and half sentences. But up 4-1 I was vainly attempting to keep the conversation hopping and relevent, to keep you from thinking about the game.

The funny part about that is the more you talk the worse you do. It''s already been well established I can score goals mid-sentence without even a pause in the dialog. Your scheming brought you nothing but ruin!

It''s just like those clowns who try and kill time by skating around in their own end with the puck. I devour them. Just like I''m going to devour those tasty lambs of yours.

The large one is Athena. The smaller is Pizzette, thusly named as the grand-Niece of Pizz, Swampy Jr''s wether, who died on us about a year ago. Pizz is an American Indian dialague of some sort that means ""worthless"". It might make a good gamertag for me...

I tell you this because: Once they have names, you can''t eat them. That''s the rule.
They live until they die of natural causes, and then they get Christian burials.

IN MAH BELLAH!

Oooh, ye wun een oovertihme, did ye?

I have played my one remaining role in this league: spoiler. with a 50 to 19 SOG advantage, for once I actually come out on top. Fun game, Mix.

Yeah, good game. We went into the third period with 1 pretty goal and 1 crappy goal apiece and around 11 minutes into the third Coldie put a back hander from right in front of the net into the lower corner. I''m sure Burke would''ve come out and poked him but he couldn''t cause of Cold''s other forward was in front of the net. It doesn''t seem like the goalies play aggressively enough for me, i dunno. Too used to my league I guess.

I dunno about your goalie man. 50 shots is a lot of rubber. I''d have a talk with your defenders.

50 shots is a boring game for Raycroft

My in-laws had a small farm. They named one pig Tammy Fay Bacon. Then they killed it. Then they ATE it! Top o'' the food chain! YEAH BABY!

On an unrelated note, my wife became a vegetarian soon after moving to said farm...

Tammy Fay Bacon

If I ever have guinea pigs again, I''m so naming one that.

My problem is that I hate playing my own defensemen, I''m terrible at it. But once you''re back there it only seems to switch between the two of them and I can''t get my forward again. I play forward IRL, I know where I''m supposed to be and what to do, but defense...ugh.

Also, I really don''t know what position strategies are best for my play style and the Flyers. Any help on that would be appreciated.

Nice work getting your games played guys! Final week is good to go!
