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.
