Demi, when shall we commence?

Psycho, a rematch! My week looks pretty good except Tuesday night. I can even play tonight if you're around.

Mix! When do ya wanna play? Huh? Huh? Monday after 5:15 EST is perfect for me, and any tips are greatly appreciated, as I hardly know what the buttons do. If you can't do Monday, then... well... I'm waiting for a phone call Monday morning to see what the rest of my week will look like, so I can't really commit past that...

I see ya online right now, Coldie. I'm game if you are. Otherwise I'm around I think every night this week.

Phily! Swampy!

As I said, I'll be in Chicago all week and won't be able to play before next Sunday.

Bagga, I should be available weekdays after 7PM EST until 1PM EST. Hopefully there won't be any connection issues like last time.

Also, Coldforged, when's the deadline for games getting played?

Lock, that Avy kicks ass.

I tried PMing you on LIVE tonight Green. Damn. Ah, well. Next Sunday it is.

I see ya online right now, Coldie. I'm game if you are. Otherwise I'm around I think every night this week.

Of course, I get offline right about that same time :). How's tomorrow night? Say around 9:00-9:30EST?

Let's go for after 10:30 EST either tonight or tomorrow night (I'll be out of town wed. night thru sunday night). Which day works better for you?

Sounds good.

Let's go for 10:30 PM EST tonight (Monday). My wife leaves for work right around then so it'll be perfect timing.

Grand. Just what I was hoping for.

I'm interested to see how I'll fare with my new crappy team and my new resolution to never dish it out with my goalie again (I seriously doubt this'll stick). I can probably play between 6:30 and 7 PM PST if you want.

Let's split the difference and play at 6:45 PST (8:45 CST) tonight.

Sounds good, see you then.

Damn, I was worried the game would be 4 - 2 in my favor and Psycho managed to put one in to not only keep it close but keep us within our one goal differential limit. Great game Psycho, I'm sure you'll be going far with the Penguins. About as far as my Caps

Yar! Poppin got so lucky! I was up 3-0 going into the 2nd, then he got 4 straight, I tied it again. Then poppin finishes it with about 6 min left in the game. It was horrific. He got three lucky goals where the puck just dropped onto the stick of a guy in front of the net after he'd knocked my defense on their ass. what is that crap? Jose Theodore spent more time down low than Mex in a sorority house and I didn't get that many breaks! I demand retribution! I want blood! I WILL END YOU!

At least I've got two guys tied for first in the league for points along with the Caps' Zuby. ...Man, that sounds odd.

Way to lose graciously, Mix!

Had a great game with Bagga last night who was a defensive juggernaut. It was the battle of the unstoppable goalies until I jinxed myself by making a joke about it. Bagga got two scores on me right after the joke (one seconds after the post-scoring faceoff), and I managed to stop it from being a complete blowout by having a deflected puck richochet off the goalie's back into the goal. Ended up being 3-1 and one heck of a challenge.

That was a good game; those two quick goals broke so much tension that I almost lost bowel control on the couch. But I didn't want to be a bad example in front of my dog.

I didn't know what I was doing! There were all these buttons... and sticks! I just kept on pressing and poking at things! Pretty colors! Me win! Yay!

Mix was winning 3-0 about 10 minutes into the game, but I turned it around and ended up outshooting him 48-29. And the puck dropping onto my guys' stick in front of the net? That's a little something I call a pass, aka the front end of a one-timer. Lucky or good? You decide!

48-29 and he's calling you lucky? PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT!

It was a good time, Certis. I wish I hadn't let the game get completely out of control by going down 2 goals ;), but alas it was not in the cards.

Of course, the more monumental impact of the game is that now, for the first time ever you lead our lifetime series 3-2. I'll go hang myself now thus preventing it from getting any worse.

You keep track of this sort of thing? Ok, I gotta ask, what's the run-down?

Comedic gold.

We're still on for tonight, right Cold? I've gotta find some time to practice.

Yup. Practice is for pansies... you should be driving in Forza every waking minute.

It's not that hard to figure really. I won the season game last time, you won the finals 2-1, then you won last night. It's not like I stay up late at night, reading stat sheets and watching a videotape of that lousy goal from the finals, all the while throwing darts a picture of your avatar and vowing to get back at you at a time when you'll least expect me. Trust me, it's really not like that.

[teensy weensy print](Evil grin) But it's true, you fool. I will get you. I will. Muahahahahaha. [/teensy weensy print]

Something tells me I'd be bad at Forza. That something might be the grandma k-car I drive now.

Let's be honest here... who doesn't throw darts at a picture of Certis' avatar? Am I right?

Guys?

I know I do...

Help! Certis touched me! I need an adult!

I'd be up for some practice tonight. Gotta get used to the new team and all.
