7 1/2 WEEKS: Almost as Sexy as You Think

This week (or so) in Maple Leaf hockey. In the tough shit category, the Bruins trapped the shit out of the Leafs and we lost 2 to 1. That was an awful game. So much so that I missed half the game as I got caught up watching American Gladiators on ESPN4. The only thing that bothers me more than never getting the opportunity to compete in The Eliminator against Nitro, Turbo and Laser is losing 2 points to a team in the same division.

Tuesday: …someone remind John Tortorella that he owes the swear jar 10 bucks after this little bon mots Tuesday night, “"They gave us an old-fashioned shitkicking,"
He was right of course. The Leafs did put the boots to the Lightning. Almost as adroitly as Greener’s clever bitch slap that he gave to Moose and Washingtron (see post above).
Most encouraging things I saw were two of the goals scored. Specifically the two by Sundin and Antropov: on the power play no less. Which at something like 3 for the past 36 was about as hot as Ruth Gordon on fake ecstacy. Anyone else hear Greg Millen query, “Can you imagine how good the Leafs would be if they ever got the power play rollin?” Indeed.
And Wellwood’s pass through the crease? Ooh baby. And I don’t really give a care how homo-erotic it sounds when I say I could watch Wellwood cross-crease to Antropov 24-7, 3-6-5.
And I daren’t say too much but Antropov getting his 15th goal of the year. That's all I am going to say.

Reason #3059 Why I love Mats Sundin: First and foremost the look on his face as he skated towards Kaberle to celebrate that perfect pass. (To score his 15th of the year as well. Can you say MVP?) Truth be told the play started with a pass from Toskala. Hey guess what? Perfect stretch pass + Mats Sundin partial breakaway + backhand deke = John Tortorella takes his pocket knife out and slits Johan Holmqvist’s nostril open Chinatown style between periods.
And Chad Kilger? Looking sharp with two goals. For the record Hal Gill, after his two assists in the game, ties his total assist output for all of last season.
Two words; Blake and Stajan.

Two more words: Bates Battaglia
Yet two more: Waivers Wednesday

Below. You do the math.

It looks like you're already down for the count there. OR, you're trying to look up their shorts to catch a glimpse of genitals. I choose the latter.

Yes but the question is what would I choose?
