LA Kings vs. Ottawa Senators

4:30 PST, Radio


-I just moved and I won't get cable or internet until next Goddamn Monday.  It's weird, I didn't become reliant on the internet until what, 2 years ago, but now I am starting to get the shakes when I go a day without it.  I was doing my laundry yesterday and I stopped to watch someone else's TV through their back window.  I'm pretty sure I've become a derelict, and I blame it on TV.  No TV and no internet make Rudy... something, something.

-Apparently Denis Gauthier was suspended 5 games for charging?  I haven't seen the hit and I don't know the context, but the suspension was too light.  Kick that guy out of the league, I say.

-They're re-making Slap Shot?  Of all the great 70's comedies, Slap Shot is the one that would fare worst in a remake.  That movie is fucking perfect, from the ridiculous hair to the dirty words* and the Hanson brothers, that movie is just great right now.  How do you remake that and make it better?  How do you remake that and not have a mutiny on your hands?  Oh, you hire the writer from 21 and the director of Fun with Dick and Jane.  Awesome.


*That movie doesn't just have a lot of profanity.  Goodfellas has profanity.  Hell, The Rock has a lot of profanity.  No, Slap Shot is a movie that specializes in dirty words.  There's the classic burn, "Your wife licks pussy!"  Or you can try your hand with, "Dunlop, you suck cock."  "Every chance I can get."  Or, there's my favorite exchange of the movie:

Reggie Dunlop: You know, your son looks like a fag to me.
Anita McCambridge: I beg your pardon?
Reggie Dunlop: You better get re-married again, or he's gonna have someone's cock in his mouth before you can say Jack Robinson.
Anita McCambridge: How dare you! How dare you!

Dirty, dirty movie.

Prediction: Kings win, 4-2.  Goals by Kopitar, Brown, Frolov and Doughty.  I go outside and communicate with my fellow man.  Goddammit.
