Ducks Gameday -- All bad seasons must come to an end.

Edmonton Oilers (whatever) at Anaheim Ducks (whatever), 5 pm (last game of the 2009-10 reg. season)
Anaheim Calling and Copper & Blue -- if this game goes to overtime, I'm counting it as "postseason".

Last game of the season, and guess who's incredibly ill-prepared to write a gameday post?  You and me both.

Did get a quick cartoon drawn, though.

Now today is probably the day when I should write a 'just-in-case' farewell to some combination of Scott Niedermayer, Teemu Selanne, and Saku Koivu.  They all could be playing in their final games in Anaheim sweaters tonight, and for Scott & Teemu, perhaps even in NHL sweaters.  But I'm already way too late and these possible farewells are better left for the long summertime anyways.  There's no way I'm doing it justice today.

Still, I did decide to take a look back over some Scott, Teemu, and Saku-themed images from over the years at BoC, particularly ones that deal with retirement.  We'll see whether any of them get to be re-recycled for use this coming summer.

Ah, memories...
