In which Jer predicts the reasons that 2014 will be great! Sharks @ Ducks.


Next Game


Whereas 2013 was all doom and gloom, maybe 2014 won't be so bad. Megalodon will tell you different, but that's because he's a morose motherfucker who no longer has any joy left in his pathetic life.

There's just so many possibilities for 2014! Anything could happen, friends. So here now are the predictions of things I believe will happen in 2014 that will make this year just great!

A Deep Playoff Run

The Ducks learn from last season's loss in 7 games to the exiled Detroit Red Wings, and come back with a hunger that takes them deep in to this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Bear Flag Revolt Redux

A second Bear Flag Rebellion turns our great state back into a great nation unto itself, free from the shackles of the lesser 49 states.

Is 2014 the year of cyborg handjobs? You bet it is.

Party Down Movie?

Even though all signs point to this never ever happening, I say 2014 sees a turn for the best and shit finally starts rolling for the return of our favorite group of struggling actor-caterers.
