Hooray, it's the first Ducks game of the season, and it's against state rival San Jose Sharks! That means it's time for another pair of themed posts from your favorite California hockey bloggers.
Let's see what hilarious theme we came up with this time...
... okay ...
Trash bag brands? Seriously? Christ, we're really scraping the bottom of the barrel here.
Well, if there's one thing I know a lot about, it's garbage. I've been wallowing in it with you folks since 2012 now, and I've learned a lot of things along the way.
When you're dealing with large amounts of absolute trash (such as San Jose, heyooooo), you need a bag that you can rely on. And when you think reliable bag, there's only one brand that comes to mind...
Holy shit, now that's a fucking commercial. They don't make them like that anymore. If you're not immediately inclined to go spend your hard earned cash on truckloads of Hefty trash bags, you're either an asshole or unamerican or both.
Or maybe you're just looking for something a little more... sexy. Well, my friend, you got it! Because Hefty is dripping with sex...
Okay, well... good talk everyone.
What to Expect Tonight
Even if the Sharks weren't hyped up coming off a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night, there's not much hope for Anaheim. Let's look at every Ducks season opener game in franchise history.

Ducks are not glad to lose 3-1 to a hefty pile of garbage.
To take up space in my gameday posts this season, so that I don't have to write so much, you'll be getting a glimpse of my playlist while I write this garbage.
Today I'm listening to: The Front Bottoms - "Laugh Till I Cry"
