Ways to occupy yourself when your team plays like crap...

Before I get to my game recap, here's the Diva's tips on how to occupy yourself when your team is playing like they are destined for a dispersal draft:

#1 Watch funny videos of your favorite players on youtube. There are so many to choose from. You could watch Bryz tell you all about his helmet when he played for the Ducks.



Or you could hear his opinion on ex-teammate Chris Pronger. ("He's a good guy, why you hafta be mad? It's a minus turty two dere...")



I chose this video of Todd "Fridge" Fedoruk doing a little on-ice dancing when he was still playing with the Wild. Every time one of your players does something stupid on the ice, watch it again and remember what good guys they really are...




#2 Spend some time checking out the funniest website I've seen in a loooooong time: nhLOL. They have an especially hiliarous Wayne Simmonds picture that references Anze Kopitar as a zombie. Hysterical. (Be sure to move your mouse over the picture for another view.) Thanks to hipchecks for pointing these out to me and keeping me from losing my sanity during the game. You can even make your own nhLOL, here's the one that I made...


Really... where has this site been all my life???

Now...
Wild 6
Coyotes 3

BLAH!

Why we lost: we played like crap, for the most part. Down by two goals early in the first, the Coyotes appeared to wake up in the second. By the first half of the third, it looked like we were on our way to our first comeback of the season. But looks can be deceiving. Goals by Joakim Lindstrom, Olli Jokinen and Steve Reinprecht put us only one point behind the Wild. They started playing like a team NOT destined for HNIC's hypothetical Coyotes dispersal draft. Thanks a lot guys... give the media up north more fuel for their fires. Then our Defense fell apart and the Wild started scoring again. We are missing the hell outta Kurt Sauer right now. David Hale played better than Yandle, I'm sad to say...

Next up? We get to welcome back Roberto Luongo, in net for the first time since his injury. Canucks, Flames, Oilers... effin' great. This is going to be one helluva road trip. Then the boys come home and play the Red Wings again. Hold on to your hockey pucks ladies and gentlemen, we're in for a bumpy ride...
Oh Danny, I know how you feel...

Visiting from Rewind @ Fibro.

I don't follow hockey, we don't have it much in the UK, but loved watching whilst holidaying in Canada. These videos made me laugh. Love the sentiment about realising what good guys they are...I hate it when fan get on sportsmans backs, like they try to mess up or lose on purpose!

LOL. No ice hockey to speak of in Australia, but that feeling of living and dying by your team's performance is one I recognise well.

Thanks for Rewinding at the Fibro.
