Not going to be too verbose...I'm pretty tuckered on wine and a full day of burning some of my vinyl collection to my laptop's iTunes library.
The W's and the Nugs can often be classified in the "fun to watch" category of NBA hoops, and tonight's game did not disapoint. It was a free-wheeling, fast breaks galore, up-tempo affair; and the Nugs can thank the fact that the W's 3-point shooting faltered in the end for their down-to-the-wire victory. (though I was a bit scared every time the Warriors were launching those bombs)
AI, Melo, and Kleiza (off the bench) carried the Nuggets offensively...per usual, Camby providing many many boards. Black Flag and MDC provided blasts from my past in 7" format.
Bad news also surfaces with word that Super Joe will undergo surgery and be out 2-3 months. Ouch. Time for some of the youngsters and newly acquired vets to step it up (I'm looking at you Hannan). Svatos' play lately has been encouraging. With the next three games against the Kings and Coyotes, it is almost paramount to pick up 5 or 6 points in the next week.

Well, that was a barnburner of a hockey game...only your goalie shouldn't be the one giving up 5 goals (and definitely not 4 goals in the 3rd period for fuck's sake).
It's hard to argue for either of the Av's goalie choices this season. They both suck.
I don't normally like "Kicking it with Kiz" but this past weekend I actually was nodding my head while reading his article in the Post.
Tonight's game only cements the sentiment. (i like how that rhyme sounds...)
So you say that Roy isn't willing to come out of retirement?
Well...if David Aebischer hadn't recently been put on waivers by the lowly PHX Coyote's minor league affiliate the San Antonio Rampage, (to quote the Hanson Brothers, "they sent me to the AHL, I wanted to stay, they sent me away....." Gross Misconduct LP Alternative Tentacles#116 1992 check it out=NoMeansNoRamonesHockeyPunk) I might be down with trying to bring Abby back (good lord, that dude must have sucked worse than we thought....) but the simple fact that he's eating crow and drinking Pilsner back in Europe now playing for HC Lugano makes me think he's not the answer.

On its face, I don't have a problem with the reinstatement. Pot seriously cannot help you on the field and probably isn't too damaging to a player's performance if he wants to partake in the occasional off the field toke. I do have a problem with running backs on the Broncos that look slow and fumble the ball, which is why I'm not too stoked that Henry is here for the rest of the season. Since we've already established the season is over anyway, and he's almost sure to be gone next season, I'd rather just cut ties now with this over-achieving procreator .

Damn, that shark sure looks fake!!
Well, that's two Avs losses in four days at the hands (fins?) of the Sharks and three losses to East Bay teams in the last four days for the Denver Pro Squads. Hopefully, the Nuggs don't take on the Warriors anytime soon. (Sorry mac.) From what I saw, a pretty decent game for the Avs with the difference being a fluky goal by the Sharks. That happens sometimes in hockey. Still hurts to drop 4 points to a team that will be near the top of the Western Conference heap by the end of the season, despite the somewhat slow start. The Avs haven't been the same since Lappy was put on the shelf with a bum knee, underscoring his importance. Get well soon, bro.
By the way, screw the Pats. That was one lucky, jive-ass win.
Feel free to continue bitching about the Broncos.

Not sure who I hate more, the Cubs or the Astros...guess it depends on who we're playing. (who am I kidding??? it's the Cubs!)
The dude was a spark at some pretty crucial times, for that I accept his thanks for allowing the Rockies to resurrect his MLB career after falling flat on his face with the Mets. Would have loved to see him back with the Rox, but......the Astros paid him pretty high for a 32 year old 2nd baseman who can be a bit streaky.
Anyways, best of luck my man KazMat, I sung your praises way more often than I screamed "you suck". I like that in my baseball players.
The Game 2 Grand Slam in Philly (notice all Caps) shall always be remembered.....
