if you've ever wondered what a texting "conversation" sounds like between your hit the post hosts, i thought this might amuse....
i attended last night's match between the flames and coyotes, and just after settling in to watch the pre-game skate (beer and pocketdawg in hand, of course), i just HAD to tell duncan that regehr was warming up. he informed me that he was watching the US elections so i asked for him to give me updates...
puuuure tag-team real-world/hockey-world symbiosis. it's like a live blog only the next day and transferred from a different electronic medium altogether.
me in bold. duncan in italics.
please note that duncan also TEXTS with caps, whereas i am a big fan of the emoticon and end most texts with little kisses.... ;) [all times in MST]:
7:41 - regehr's taking the warmup... :-)
7:42 - Aces! I'm PVRing till 11 to watch election results. then FF thru commercials. Obama's won Ohio.
7:44 - keep me posted on elections ? roy is also taking the pregame skate. 23, 20, 25, 19 too... :-)
[nystrom, glenX, moss, primeau]
7:45 - No 29, though? Boooo!
7:46 - him too... and 55 so who knows
7:46 - It's like playoff chess ... against the Yotes in November. Flames are so weird sometimes.
7:59 - ya but who's winning the election
8:00 - Obama's up 199-78 so far, but polls about to close in Republican heartland. Still, Obama's won Ohio and Penn, so writing is on the wall. Go Prust !
8:02 - wicked. let's hope the flames didn't sign the pact i made re: arizona ... :-) x
[note: my facebook status yesterday said "(WI) hopes that if someone from arizona HAS to win tonight, it's the coyotes !!"]
8:03 - reggie's in. x
8:26 - more please!
8:27 - Looks like Obama's going to win Arizona! CNN calls McCain situation "grim."
8:30 - awesome.... :-) gio gets a knee on knee .... seems to be ok. .... i love that kid ... x
8:31 - Who did it ? That bitch Jovo ?
8:35 - not sure. #13
8:41 - carcillo. 'course.
8:43 - ur pal connie has got to go....
8:44 - I know. But in fairness, he's distracted tonight, being american and all.
8:45 - i. love. me. some. gio....
8:46 - I love these cryptic game updates. At this point, i figure Gio has a torn ACL and a goal. and Conroy's playing for Phoenix.
8:54 - that's hilarious.... i don't want to give it away.... is obama president yet?
8:56 - Not quite. But he just won Virginia. Calif results coming soon, that's the kicker.
8:59 - as if he won't win cali
9:00 - But that'll tip it. 3 minutes to calling it for B.O
9:03 - done deal ? obama ?
9:04 - It's called. Everyone.
9:04 - so says CNN.
9:05 - Also Fox News, NBC, BBC, and my dog, Pluggers.
9:06 - wicked. i love your dog's new name.
9:08 - Sandra hasn't accepted her new name yet, but it'll come.
9:09 - she'll learn... :-) this is a decent game
9:11 - 13, 24, 23 seems like a good line, non ?
[cammo, conroy, nystrom]
9:12 - Wasting 13 a bit, isn't it ? With two stonehands ?
9:22 - i might have traded a flames win for an obama win
9:24 - 13. 24. 7
[cammo, conroy, bertuzzi]
9:26 - Better.
9:32 - this game has ceased to be good... 24 is pure liability
9:33 - He heard Obama won and can't keep it together.
9:34 - i guess...
10:13 - i want more of that gio. seriously. awesome game by #5
damn, i love me some gio....
