It's Hockey Season!!!!

Or it will be as of opening day, Oct 5th. So, if you haven't joined yet, Ted of Rocket Jones, has thrown down the gauntlet in a menacing way, (eww, I'm very afraid) for hockey fans to join in his Whoopass Jamboree Roster.

I've joined but I must tell Ted that he needs to think about a new name for this crew. One that conveys the speed, action, passion and agressiveness that is hockey. Whoopass Jamboree doesn't cut the mustard for me. Instead, it gives me an imagery of young boy scouts hitting each other on their naked butts with wet towels at the edge of a river. Sorry Ted but that's what comes up in my head... not appealing at all!

On the other hand, if you say hockey to me, the image I get is of panting, hot sweaty guys, sporting black and blues with splotches of red steaks on their faces. oh wait, I think that was last night's dream.

Anyway, I think something along the lines of Bloody Hockey Smackdown or BodySlam Countdown would be a more fitting name. But that's just me thinking out loud.

Anyway, if you care to join us, read the 4 simple rules and drop your team's name in Ted's comment box. So far I feel so unchallenged! There's only Victor of Publius for me to spar with, and he has a rat's chance in hell of beating me. That's a long 7 months with only 1 opponent.

I went for the Rangers as soon as I learned that RP of Random Penseur was being a poseur while having a geographic identity crisis. That's the only reason why I think he didn't choose the Rangers.

If you decide to participate, think of the bragging rights you'll have if you win.

So here's your opportunity to help me pick the logo that will be on my side bar for the next 7 months. Go to the extended entry and vote for which will look better. Thanks!

I passed this year. Couldn't do it. I just cannot make myself care about hockey anymore. Even ESPN doesn't care. They just ruined the whole thing with that strike last year.

Of the two logos, you should pick the one that's easier to take down, because the Rangers are gonna lose all year long.

Don't forget that you're playing against everyone, not just those in your division. Word is, the NHL is sending everyone to New York and DC this season several times, just to rack up some wins.
