Some fine choke artistry for the US Curling Team, largely thanks to 2006 bronze medalist John Shuster. His nonchalant attitude toward each mounting failure didn't help win many of us die hard curling fans over. I'm fairly certain DeathTruck will be replacing him on the US team in 2014.
Feel free to take some pot shots at this admittedly weak post, Mr. Anonymous.....

No NHL games for 2 weeks...bummer. However, I am getting pretty geeked to watch some of the Olympic hockey, assuming NBC shows it. Despite a totally forgettable loss in LA last night, the Avs do head into the break having won 4 of 5 and will get to rest the majority of their players. While it sucks Andy didn't get selected to the US team, it's probably better for the Avs that he sits for 2 weeks, especially considering his workload thus far this season. And with Vancouver losing this afternoon to the Wild, Avs players can kick back knowing they share the lead in the NW Division. I think most people would have taken that before the season began. Much props to Sacco for the job he's done to this point.....

Sorry for the delayed post, but the entire KTH family needed some time to sleep off the large quantities of complimentary beers consumed at the game last night. I'm going to guess that KTH staff can account for 95% of the Miller Lite, Corona, Coors Light, Heineken, and Fat Tire provided in the Blogger's Suite. And that was before the Ancient Age was flowing like the River Nile back at Sonic Tooth's house.
A big THANK YOU to Meghan for hooking us up with what was a truly fun evening of fancy living and great hockey viewing. Duchene, what can you say?!? Dude continues to step it up. Andy has another ho hum brilliant night, and Yip was buzzing around the net most of the game. Big win against a team that is going to be playing some post season hockey. Another test tonight out in LA before the long Winter Olympics hibernation.

I was about ready to write this game off. The Avs going up against a team that just traded their best player...a true franchise player. Then the home team goes down early, and looks sluggish in the 2nd.
Ah, yes. The Avs wait until the 3rd period to bring this game back from the brink. Took two goals just to tie things up. Stew-bag. Durno.
OT? I barely had a chance to take a sip of my glass of wine before Cumiskey ends this thing, and secures 2 points. 9 seconds? That's quick work Kyle.

This is pretty late, but I did want to contribute this jumbotron pic of Lauren doing that damn Price is Right game (it's no Card Sharks rip off) during last night's Avs 5-2 beat down of the Blooze. 30Pack Thief with a last-minute extra ticket in what can be described as the best seats possible in the 3rd level: Row 1, Exact Center Ice. One drawback of Row 1 is that they put the cup holders on the arm rests, making it impossible to leap out of your seat to celebrate another Yip goal without doing a little hip shake. I was able to deal with it with my slender figure.
And yes, Yip fever is spreading like the plague.

Ah yeah, this is turning into a college sports blog. No need to mention the Nuggets big win over the Lake Show last night. SonicTooth and I had bigger fish to fry as the DU Pios were hosting the Mercyherst something or other (didn't catch what their mascot is). Anyhoo, these two clowns were drunk on the Light Rail home and open to having their picture taken. They were nice enough chaps, but I can't imagine how insufferable Mercyhurst fans would be if they actually won the game (KU fan comparisons?)....with DT heading back to the dry Coors Events Center, I expect another installment on this college blog soon after my Buffs upset Mizzou....

The fever could apply to a number of Avs youngsters, but Yip Fever sounds better than O'Reiley Fever (2 shortys during a 4 min PK) or Galiardi Fever (4 points, including two assists on aforementioned shortys). Plus, Yippers just exudes hockey attitude in this picture. With all the production from the kids on this team, you gotta wonder what they would be like if they had some consistent scoring from the vets (I'm looking at you Stastny and Wolski). It will be nice when the Duke returns....A much-needed win for this team to stop a 3-game skid combined with a rare Vancouver loss makes for a pretty nice little night of hockey.....
