so long, and thanks for all the fish

so my superfast eastern swing is coming to an end, and tomorrow i'll spend 25 hours in transit to the opposite end of the globe. then, i'll spend the next month-plus in a country where cricket and footy rule, and nobody cares about "icehockey." so be it. to be true, right now i couldn't care less either, since my beloved team can't even notch a win against one of the worst opponents in the NHL. and i'm struggling in my pools (demitra, you bum, it's supposed to be GABORIK who gets injured !!!)...

i was in north bay, on the weekend, for a wedding.
this, in itself, is not nearly as notable as the hockey game which was being televised during lunch at east side mario's on saturday afternoon... game 2 of the 1986 stanley cup finals. wiiiiiiiiicked..... i don't have a whole lot to say about it, besides the following:

1. iggy could be as good a captain as lanny, if he wants to be.
2. game 2 in 86 was a total defensive breakdown, and we lost in OT ---kinda like half the games we've played this year....
3. al macinnis was damn good... DAMN.
4. mikey vernon had a much quicker glove than i give him credit for (see: kipper)
5. huselius, in all honesty, plays a lot like my boy loob (especially on the PP).

the point ? our current team is easily good enough to go to the finals and lose against the '86 habs.

Yes, he was. Too bad he never got a ring here, though we're lucky to still have him around.
