Canuck Impotence

I just witnessed my first NHL hockey game. The local team here had adopted the US slang word Canuck. It's a good thing that I saw some proper hockey by the Giants, because the Canucks failed to score tonight. Well, normally a 0-0 does not have to be bad, as long as it is Soccer. In Hockey, I expect at least some goals, or if not, some dog fighting. Both were not present at this game. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd periods were goal-less, and so was the extra time. Even when they did the shoot-out (much like Penalties in Soccer) Vancouver failed to score. The Edmonton Oilers put in 1 goal during the shoot-out though. At work I had printed out the anthem lyrics, but darn it, I left it at the office. So I sang along half the lines of the anthem. Oh well, better luck next time. The pictures show the line up for the anthem, and the first Oiler shoot-out (a miss).

Aww, Sweetheart, I am sorry that the game was uneventful. It's not the same without one goal or, at the very least, a hockey fight.

Did they throw bags of peanuts or cans of paint at you?

Your headlines get weirder and weirder :-)

That is because 'Impotence' is a mis-understood term. Princeton defines it as:
powerlessness: the quality of lacking strength or power; being weak and feeble

I knew that :-).

It's just that headlines without context in an RSS feed are sometimes... funny.

Are you using google reader?

No, just Firefox and a Nokia phone.
