Philadelphia Flyers (20-10-7, 5th in east) at Anaheim Ducks (19-15-4, 6th in west)
2009: According to my calendar, it is Year of the Duck.
Rather than write up anything meaningful today, I thought I'd take a look back over some of the posts I wrote / pictures I drew over the past calendar year. Think of it as a bit of a retrospective on some of the 2008 blog-silliness of Earl Sleek. For any of the images, feel free to click back and read what events inspired such blessed idiocy. I've included one picture per month, plus three bonus pictures from a pretty image-happy summer.
