Ha! I told you guys Matt Greene wouldn't be able to play for a while! I was skeptical when Murray said he was fine and even when Greene was practicing I thought he still wouldn't play! And I was RIGHT! HAHAHAHA!!!!
...Wait, fuck, Matt Greene's not going to play tonight? DAMMIT!!!
It's not as big a loss as Willie Mitchell or Drew Doughty, but it still hurts. Whenever one of our 3 top penalty killers (Greene, Mitchell or Rob Scuderi) is either injured or gets a penalty, that means that either Drew Doughty or Jack Johnson is manning the penalty kill. Since they already play a ton on the power play, they're usually too tired for a lot of even-strength time. The Kings have been playing Johnson more on the penalty kill in an attempt to keep Doughty fresh for big even-strength minutes and I think it's a good idea, but I think Murray would be reluctant to pair Johnson and Davis Drewiske on a penalty kill... or at least, he should be. I think Doughty and Mitchell will basically take every other shift tonight, with the other 4 guys filling in when necessary.
Anyway, sucks for Greene but good for him to man up and admit he's not feeling well. If he can change, and I can change, maybe, just maybe, you can change. Which is good because you haven't changed in like 3 days and you smell like B.O. and rainwater. Jesus you're disgusting. Get ahold of yourself you wretch!
Every day to and from work I have to deal with a "Yield" sign, and every day I am completely blown away by how people do not understand how one works. It's easy: a car is coming, you stop; no car is coming, you go. WHAT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND??? I've been honked at least 10 times because a car veered in front of me in spite of their yield, and at least 5 times because I stopped at the yield because, you know, there's a fucking car in the way. It's fucking maddening. Do people just not know what a yield sign is? Do they stare in befuddlement at the Pearl Jam CD, muttering, "They have some strange signs in Seattle?" It's not a merge sign, you fucks! If a gameday goes by without a post by me, don't worry: it just means I died in a fiery accident because I finally decided, "Fuck it, I'm just going and if that guy hits me I don't care."
Prediction: Kings win, 3-1. Goals by Doughty, Kopitar and Williams. I'm dead so I can't celebrate.
