Fired coaches, and drunken hirings!

Tuesday, November 14, 2006
Still in New Jersey! And still enjoying myself, even though I just found out the news that ol' Gerard Gallant was given the pink slip yesterday. Poor sod ... he's the kind of guy who you like, but you just should not give the reigns to something important (such as coaching an NHL team).

I'm sort of groggy this morning after a long night, and being on "vacation" still, I'm just here to let everyone know that I am indeed alive, and I will be back in Columbus on Wednesday morning, in time to jump in to the thick of things for the game against Nashville that evening.

While I am here, though, I decided to do something a little silly with what will probably happen with the current vacant coaching position for the Blue Jackets (unless you count Agnew's interim position as sufficient). Yes, I am totally ripping off Sherry from Scarlett Ice here ... but I'm on a borrowed laptop I'm totally not used to (mine's broke and in the shop for another week to two weeks), and so I can't exactly make anything myself (this touchpad is killing me!). Here's hoping she doesn't get mad. :D

And with that, I'm out like Paul Kariya after that hit in the 2002 2003 (thanks, ES!) Stanley Cup Finals (I so didn't mean the joke in a mean-spirited way. Explanation within my own comments ... though now I feel pretty lame. :-/ ).

    A crass joke, made all the more egregious by mis-citing the year.

    That would be the 2003 SCF. You and PK are the two guys who keep messing that up.

    Really, it's 2003? ... oh, I know why I forgot! I like to have a case of selective amnesia when it comes to the 2002 season and the Red Wings winning the Cup then. =D

  • At 10:02 AM, Blogger Michael Turner said…

    Oh, and ... actually, I probably should've been more clear with the joke. Actually, I used that one because even though Kariya did get knocked out, he returned soon enough better than ever (scoring the OT winner and all), like with me being back in C-Bus tomorrow!

    So, yeah. Not intentionally crass. I could've been more specific.

  • At 1:31 PM, Blogger Earl Sleek said…

    Oh, I should clarify. I love crass!

    PK, by the way, came back and scored a goal, but not the OT winner. I think it was the Ducks' 4th goal in a 5-2 game 6.

    No worries Michael, I'm quite flattered it's being put to good use :P
