Legion, aside from the weekend I think I can make most evenings work given some notice.

Green, When can you play. Any night but Thursday, here.

Poppin, does Sunday night work for you?

Certis - Don't we play football too? Maybe a back-to-back on Thursday or Friday night?

Better make it Thursday night, looks like I might be out of town Friday night. Pick a time, I'll make sure I'm ready for my spankins'

What, that's it? No smack talk?

Ask me properly and I'll bother replying, wimp.

That's.. *counts fingers* 9PM CST. That'll be fine! Hockey first?

It should. The earlier, the better, though. I may have a real life hockey game that night-- the people who schedule the games probably won't tell me until Saturday... *grumble*

Demi, when we on?

Sorry, OK, c*ck knocker, Let's see whose 0-3 team is made up of more bitches. Your lady Habs or my Bruinettes.

I'll be on tonight.

That's more like it, futt bucker.

Not sure what time I'll be home tonight, but I should be online around 10. I'm aiming for 0-10, try not screwing that up.

While they can't tell me when I'm playing real life hockey, they can tell me that it's definitely not going to be Sunday, so anytime Sunday should be fine.

How about this weekend? Saturday after 6pm EST or anytime Sunday. If those don't work, let me know when you're free.

Remember that I'm fresh off a victory over Green, so I'll have a +5 bonus to Trash Talk.

Howzabout Sunday 9:30PM ESTish? Got a hockey game to go to Saturday.

Greenie, we missed each other. How about Sunday night, 9:30 EST. That way we can play at the same time CF and Demi play, and you can feel close to them, seeing as you're so gay for them.

Ever notice how Swampy's always bringing up the manlove thing? Latent Homosexuality, anyone? He's already got the cop uniform, he's just a mustache away from being a Village Person.

I say, YOUNG MAN!

What's that? Jealousy?

If I say yes will you give me a freaking answer about Sunday?

Legion and I got our game played, he staged a strong comeback and almost tied the game up in the final minute after he pulled his goalie. Kippersof (sp?) stood (or crouched) strong and held him off though, final score was 3 - 2 for Calgary and both teams shot in the mid to low 20's over all. Great game Legion!

f*ckING KIPRUSOFF!

Goaltending play was the big difference in a close game. Kiprusoff wouldn't let anything in without a war. Garon? He let Visnovsky kick one in.

Certis exceled at defensive zone play. Unfortunately, from playing random online games, I've gotten too used to keeping the puck with one player in the offensive zone, dodging a bunch of chasing defensemen, and then setting up easy goals. I didn't get out of that habit until late in the game, and I finally started to mount some decent offensive zone attacks. Regardless, I wasn't getting 50 shots this game. I need to play more games against opponents like that. I thought playing public online games would help get me sharp, but I think it had some of the opposite effect - getting so used to combating "cheese play" that I forget how to play against a true, sharp opponent.

Awwww how cute! Sunday's nice but 9:30 is like half an hour too early. You know, I don't wanna end up like this.

OK, 10 PM EST Sunday?

Demi and I stared incredulously at the screen following the 8 to 4 thrashing I gave him. It was 4 to 4 going into the third, with no expectation of anything but another close period. Then Osgood lost his mind and my Canes started channeling the real life Hurricanes and scored 4 in the 3rd. Basically every time I looked wrong at the puck it went in. There's them dice!

Demi, that was a hell of a way to end the game, but I enjoyed playing with you. Hope they fix the damned game so that if you're chatting and wanting to look at stats it doesn't kill the voice comm.

Hey poppin, it's probably too late but if you're out there any chance to get our game in at 11:30 pm EST tonight?

Went to the movies with El Wifeo. When else could you play? I'm open Monday and Tuesday after 6:30 EST, Wednesday after 9:00 EST.

Is 11 PM EST tonight too late?

Should be fine-- I'll see you then!

New article on the league website.

It is a tale of intrigue and deception, of bravery and foolishness.

And of me beating Green.

4 games into the season, I have been in 3 overtimes and one shootout. I wish there were points in this league!

Poppin are you having problems? I can log onto xbox live fine but it's telling me the 2k sports service is unavailable and I can't get in the league.
