Tune into SportsCentre or SportsNet right now. You have to see highlights of the Penguins/Capitals game. Now, first of all: when was the last time anybody said you had to see highlights of a Penguins game? Let alone a Caps game, and then a game between the two of them? Interesting question. Back to the point… Sidney Crosby is insanely talented. He is the real deal. Now my mind does not remember Gretzky in his prime, but I imagine that he would have been something like Crosby. I didn’t think he’d live up to the hype. But he has; he’s actually surpassed it. Oh, if only the Leafs had won that blasted lottery. Wait – do they have any first round picks left this decade?
On to football. May the Eskies win this weekend. Don Matthews and his Alouettes have always irritated me. But so have the Esks. So, what’s my reasoning? Well, there is the West vs. East card, but I want Jason Maas to win a Grey Cup. I think he’s the most underrated QB in the league, and he’s proved it the past couple of games. A team player like him deserves a Grey Cup. I don’t know who will win. Both teams have been very inconsistent all year, but the Alouettes have been making a good late season charge. I fear Edmonton’s luck may run out. But they have “heart”. We’ll see… Oh, and somebody remind Ed Hervey that the Grey Cup is in Vancouver, not Calgary. This is not the Stampede – put the cowboy hat away.
What is with the fog here? This is Day 4 of Fog 2005. This is ridiculous. I haven’t seen the mountains for days. I guess it’s just preparation for being back in Saskatchewan in less than a month. Ha ha!
Ack, I was going to write more, but I don’t feel like writing anymore. This little bit has taken me an hour as I’ve been watching SportsNet. Not a good combination. Tomorrow is voice lesson day. Yeah! And for one of my Little Mozart kids, it’s the day they get to go bowling at school. Bowling at school? Yeah, I thought it was weird, too. But hey – you’re not stuck in a classroom.
