TGIF

How great did fridays used to be?


Just a sample of some shows that used to dominate friday nights.
Imagine an early fall friday night back then.
Maybe the Penguins had a 7:30 start.
Inbetween Mario Lemieux scoring 3 goals, you get a lesson in family from Danny Tanner on full house. You get some lessons in the struggles of a middle class African American household in Family Matters. You watch Susan Summers in her final years of being hot on Step by Step. And last but not least you get the hysterics of the adventures of Larry and Balki in Perfect Strangers.
It is hard to find a better era of TV.

But those days are gone.
Now we spend our friday nights, trying to job Fedko.

Fedko got the win over us tonight.
Does anyone even know why they call it the fone zone?
How can someone take three callers in 30 minutes?
No question this guy is the worst sportscaster in the business right now.
The last big story he broke was looking down a high school cheerleaders shirt from his helicopter to report her bra size.
Series is 2-1.
See ya Monday John.

...........................................

The Baby Pens gave it their best effort.
But it wasn't to be.
The Hersey Homos win the series with a gut-wrenching 7-6 ot victory.
Apparently the officials fixed the game.
Hershey got two 5-on-3's in the first five minutes of OT.

Fags

.........................................
Speaking of Fags.
Detroit beat Anahiem in game one of the Western conference finals.

With apologies to our good friends at npi-com
Thomas Holmstrom has gotten away with roughly 700 goalie inference penalties in the playoffs.
But nonetheless. The Wings win 2-1. And in the end thats all that matters.

So, apparently I am an asshole for calling Dany Heatley a murderer at the letsgopens.com boards.

I'm guessing that most of the regulars there aren't fans of this site...

Maybe we can send Fedko down to Double A Altoona or package him in a deal for some draft picks to Moose Jaw.

Andrew - I got your back at the letsgopens board.

I used to like reading the boards there, but now it's full of a bunch of know-it-all stiffs...
