I hope we get a young talented tough goalie. thats fun to watch.

mightbite

Fun to watch=but stays in his net=sometimes.

Brandon

Ah-Ha, I scooped Cohny

Hit Somebody!!!

What about Young Master Sims? Any chance we see son coached by dad this season?

Cat Eyes

mightbite...is that a reference to my "Get back in the net!!" screaming at the games?? And that fact that, no matter how talented, Reiter made me so nervous to watch? Oh well, glad he's getting his wish and all. He was a great goalie with an impressive record, so it is a bummer to see him go. But, this does free up a few more precious dollars...and we'll get a backup who will be awesome, I have every confidence in that!

Bruce, we could still put both of our kids in the net...OK, maybe I'm not willing to chance a Komets game on that one, but it would be funny to see 'em stacked in there, eh? BTW...Ra was AWESOME, and nice...got to meet 'em backstage. No, I did not rub Sahaj's bald head...even though Jerrdog of the Bear tried to sucker me into it...new drink for me: Jagerbombs...wow..feeling really bad today, but had fun last night!!

Wendy

Great, I have a second player to tell my UK friends to support. Now if only I could get them interested in hockey. When I mentioned Brandon Warner's new team, the Hull Stingrays, to one of them, they said, "Hull has a hockey team?"

And Cat: I'm glad you enjoyed the concert! So how is Ra doing these days? I lost track of him after Cleopatra died. [groan] Seriously, though, that is very cool that you won the radio contest. Congratulatios! :)

mightbite

CatsEyes-don't know if I heard you or not but I think he stayed in his net more as the year went on./maybe get patrick roy boy=he can fight.

Hoss

Isn't Brandon Warner's new team his old team, the Komets?

Brandon

uh yeah..B-Dub is a Komet

Brandon

Reynolds did sign to play in Hull tho

Mrs. Mightbite

Mrs.Mightbite here: does anyone know if the new hotel across from coliseum will be open by opening night?

Karla Stranger

OMG.....They traded Griffey JR.to the White Sox. I am SOOOOOOOOO BUMMED!

FiveMinuteMajor

Darn it, now what am I gonna do with this orange and black bungee cord? :P Seriously though, I liked Reiter and wanted him to come back, even if I did have to sit on my hands to keep my nails intact while he was playing. I'm sure they'll bring in someone good to be the backup, let the speculation begin!
Cat- you gotta watch out for those Jagerbombs. Ugh...

Wendy

D'oh! I meant Matt Reynolds, of course. For some reason which even I don't understand, I tend to get their names confused.

And since I'm correcting things, I meant "Congratulations" to Cat, not some Italian-sounding congratulatory expression.

Hit Somebody!!!

Go Cubs Go.

I was introduced to a new drink last night. Cherry Coke Zero. Wow, that stuff is great. I feel great today too.

I watched David Gilmour in concert last night. He rocks.

Did anyone eat pizza last night?

Go Komets!!!

Brandon

haha great post Hit!

bruce

cat, yes it would be funning but i dont see that happening either putting both kids in the net for the komets

glad you enjoyed the concert and Jagerbombs they are good, had one about two weeks ago, i was fine the next day but then again i only had one

Hoss

Hit, if you like Cherry Coke Zero, you should try stright Cherry Coke! It gives you such a rush!!! It will take you back to those crazy high school days when you used to sneak into your mom's "special spot" and take drink of Mt. Dew!!! The glory years....

And I did infact eat pizza tonight for dinner. It was Tony's and boy-o-boy was it the best! Have a fun Friday tomorrow!
Your fellow Ice Chipper,
Hoss

Hit Somebody!!!

Thanks Hoss. What are you watching on tv tonight? I like to flip through the channels so I can watch 1-2 minutes of everything. I had a diet cherry pepsi tonight. It was fantabulous!!! I might have another in a few minutes. That would involve me going up the stairs, into the garage, opening the icebox, and then opening the can. I sure do like cherry pop. MMMMMMMM!!! It makes me feel so goooooood.

Well, hope you sleep good tonight Hoss.

Your Buddy.

Hit.

Hit Somebody!!!

PS...I might go to a Cubs game before the year is over. Hoss, I have a blue Ryan Theriot Jersey, A Blue BP Jersey, A Grey D-Lee jersey, a Blue Prior jersey, and a white and blue non-game majestic jersey. I am wanting to buy a Fukudome Blue Jersey and a Zambrano Home jersey. Which jersey should I wear if I go? Thanks for your help Hoss.

Hit.

Karla Stranger

I was well on my way to head up til Milwaulkee today. My supervisor gave the go ahead, and encouragued us to head up to Mil. My leaving early after game 7 came into play, and I couldn't go up to Milwaukee. I wasn't as upset as the college student who I was taking.. GO CUBS GO

Brandon

Dear Hit,

Hi!!! It's Brandon! LOL! I was sitting in class and bored and stuff so I just thought I'd write and say WhAtS uP!?!?!If I was so super lucky like you, I would like definitally wear the Ryan Theriot jersey! He's The Riot! Get it?! The Riot is Theriot broken in half! My bff told me that! It's SO LOL funny! Cherry Coke Zero is pretty swell but you HAVE to try straight up coke with cherry syrup! It's intense! If you want a real rush, try the syrup alone...It's a sugar rush like no other! OMG! I was like WHOOOOOOOOOOOA!!

Your Pal,
Brandon!

Hoss

Dear Hit,

You sound like you have a lot of Cub's jerseys. It would be a tough choice, which one to wear. I would say you should get on this new "world-wide-web" thing and try out a "web-page" (you don't even have to turn them!) called "e-BAY." It's like a huge store that you can go up and down the "rows of stuff" without even leaving your house. Anyways, I would get a Mark Grace jersey, it's a classic, but I don't know if your should get gray or blue or even white with blue pin-stripes, they all confuse me on when they wear what and how. That's why I love the Komets, white at home, black on the road. Except when they wear orange on sundays, like some years. Ant then there is always the blue Napa jerseys, but those are only in warm-ups. Oh, and one month they wear them switched, and wear black at home and white on the road, but they still wear orange on sunday, cuase they can't switch sundays, or the big guy upstairs gets mad and then he only plays "Who Let the Dogs Out!" You know that reminds me of a great band that I tried to get to come and play at a hockey game since they are a huge hockey band, The Rolling Stones. They started playing because the couldn't play pond hockey anymore because they lost thier pucks and then they decided to use a stone on the side of the pond and when Mick (that's the older guy who sings) took a slap-shot to the chin, he said, "Those rocks sure do roll." and then the old guy that plays goalie and the drums said, "No Mick, it's a STONE!" Thus giving them a name. Then they played that "Hockey-Puck Woman" wich is a song about a wonam that loves hockey pucks and I thought it would be great for them to come play at a game, maybe to bring in a few more fans for a Wednesday night game, so I sent them a electronic letter (e-mail for short) to see if they would play their hockey song but they siad it was called "Honky Tonk Woman" and I said they could play their new stuff after they played their hockey song. I hope they come. But to get back to you Hit, I would just wear whichever jersey fit around that gut of your's, since you have been hitting the soda so hard this summer. LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! <---- (That is world-wide-web for I made a funny!!!)

All my love,
Hoss

Hoss

Dear Brandon,

I don't know how you are reading this private letter I keep sending to Hit, but he is my friend and not your "Pal!" Please stop hacking into my letters. They are only for Hit and no one else. If I wanted others to read them, I would post them on a "Blog." (It's a place where people go and post stuff on the World-Wide-Web, someone should come up with a nickname for that so it's not so long!!!)

Thanks for being so understanding!
Your non-Pal,
Hoss

Hoss

P.S. "3W's" is much faster!!! I think it might stick!

"Sorry mom, I can't come out of the basement to eat dinner with the family cause I am on the 3W's!" (That sounds so much cooler and the kids at school will like me now! I'm popular!!!)

Cat Eyes

FiveMinuteMajor...yeah, my bungee cord goes back into the garage, too...glad to know it was not just me!

Thanks, Bruce, Wendy, and FiveMinuteMajor..I did have fun, and was safe about it. Very funny Egyptian reference, there, Wendy...

Brandon

Dear Hoss,

You're a jerkface! I'm magically delicious so I can see EVERYTHING you do..yes..E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! It's a gift but sometimes not a very nice one, you know what I'm talking about! sicko! If you don't like that I can see everything, I'll meet you on the playground at 4pm and we'll take care of this like manly men!

Talk to you soon!
Your enemy,
Brandon

Brandon

P.S.

Hit is my dear and good friend! A couple days ago we played marbles, had a sword fight, burned bugs with a magnifying glass, and ate turkey and cheese sammiches that my mommy made us..what you think about that?!

Wendy

To Hoss, Hit Somebody, and Brandon: I'm so sorry. I didn't realize that you three were still in Junior High. Or is it grade school?

And Hit Somebody, why not just go to the game naked? I'm sure all the ladies there could use a good laugh.

Karla Stranger

Ok Cohny have your stripes on? Looks like ya need a referee.Your blog your problem. LOL

Hit Somebody!!!

Dear Wendy,

I didn't realize that this was a hockey blog and not a place to have conversations about non-hockey garbage. I am sure there are plenty of other places to go to flirt and brag about the drink of the day.

Mr. Obvious.

Brandon

Hit: 1

New Bloggers: 0

Wendy

Hit, do I look stupid to you? I've been on messageboards that would eat the likes of you for breakfast, so don't get me started. Don't worry Justin. I will always keep it clean, and I'm not someone to insult anyone if not provoked (like some). But I WILL stand up for someone who has done nothing but offer her friendship and kindness to everyone here. If you have a problem with her, you have a problem with me.

Brandon

Fight! Fight! Fight!

Quick! Everyone grab your colored scarfs and sticks!

Hit Somebody!!!

How about them Komets?

Hit Somebody!!!

Anyone drink anything last night..LOL?

mightbite

mightbite=6 Coors beers=too hot to drink alot.

Brandon

I like how Wendy tries to turn this into a fight...that's a classy lady right there!

Wendy

Brandon, if you can't see that is a fight, you're blinder than a playoff referee. You've mocked and humiliated a good person -- someone who simply wanted to come here, make friends, and talk about hockey in ALL of its aspects -- not just the one dimensional version some of you seem capable of grasping. She didn't fight back, so you kept it up until you truly hurt her. How is that not cruel?

So yes, I AM a classy lady. At least I'm honorable. I won't look the other way when a friend -- someone as kind-hearted as Cat -- is being attacked. Which reminds me...

MIGHTBITE: Cat said to tell you she said "Hello".

Brandon

If you're blind..yeah, that's the word we'll use..blind enough to think this is directly at Cat only, may lord have mercy on your soul.

mightbite

Hi-Cat + Wendy+ RaVeN = from mightbite + Mrs.Mightbite/the Mrs. has recovered from her surgery & getting ready for opening night.Not for sure if we'll make preseason games.

Cat Eyes

mightbite...hope your mrs. recuperates well...I'm sure she will get there for opening night! Komet hockey is a pretty powerful incentive to get better! :)

Wendy...thanks for standing up for your friends! You rock! :)

Wendy

Oh, don't worry. I know that your "He Man Woman's Hater's Club" has problems with the way most women think, speak, and act. But I also know that your remarks have absolutely nothing to do with me, personally. Okay, you don't know me, but trust me on this one. Dude, you are serioulsy barking up the wrong tree. I don't think you are even in the right forest. You have no idea.

and: Hello mightbite. I am glad to hear the Mrs. is recovering. :) As for the games, you'll get there when you get there, but I do hope it is sooner rather than later.
