I'm disappointed, you guys.

Really disappointed.

So disappointed, in fact, that I'm taking the rest of November off. No more gameday posts for me this month. But I'll get to that further down.

No, I'm not disappointed because the Ducks are 0-2-1 in their last three games and haven't won a single game yet on this road trip. These things happen. Especially with all the injuries and flu-stricken players that Anaheim has.

I'm disappointed with you, the reader.

In my last gameday post I made a simple request: Click a button that will send an email to the Carolina Hurricanes staff that blames the horrible tragedy in the Philippines on them. Annoying people via email is something we can all get behind, right?

Apparently not. You just couldn't do it, you couldn't click that button.

Only 8 emails went out to the Hurricanes, as of this writing. Unless you idiots somehow removed the BoC email address from the CC: of the email, that means almost none of you participated. One of those emails was from me. One of those emails came from the BoC email address (so, also me). Another one of those emails came from my wife, and she doesn't even fucking read BoC. That means only five of you participated. Many thanks to those 5 who shared my vision of a public relations release from Carolina, assuring us that they have done nothing to result in the death of anyone. I'm sorry that the rest of your fellow readers are such horrible people.


Even Megalodon and Dunn, after I begged them, refused to participate.

So anyway, I need a break. I'm too disappointed to even look at you. For the rest of November, I'm not writing any posts. I'll have some guest writers standing in for all Ducks gamedays.

This certainly has nothing to do with the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and me travelling, nor have I had these guest posts planned for weeks or anything, uh, I promise. It's because you're all assholes.

Anyway, you should mostly know everyone who will be guest-posting for the next handful of games. Some of them are Ducks fans, some of them hate the Ducks. It will be an interesting experiment.

Gameday Prediction

One of the Ducks players with the flu appears to throw up all over Marc-Andre Fleury, but really Fleury just gets a piece of it and it all ends up in the back of the net.

Classic Moment

To help commemorate the Ducks' 20th year this season, each gameday I'll be posting a clip of a classic moment from the team's history against that night's opponent. Here is today's...

Remember how the Ducks were just one lottery-drawn spot away from landing Sidney Crosby in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft?
