March Of The Penguins

Los Angeles Kings vs Pittsburgh Penguins

My brother took the tickets for tonight's game so I write tonight from watching it on TV. And since Mario Lemieux quit, the Penguins are not really worth seeing anyhow.

...I never really noticed how hard it is to spell Lemieux. I mean, I see it all the time and know how to say it, but typing it just then sent my spell-checker into a panic. So I went to look it up online, and since he's not a player anymore, he's not on a roster. So now since I don't know how to spell it, how am I supposed to look it up? "No entries for Lemiux found" "No entries for Lemuiex found". Seriously, no wonder people don't write articles about him anymore, I mean, who wants to look like and idiot by writing a story about someone, only to find out you spelled the guys name wrong? I don't know about you, but I probably would. Well then I happened to see that he was in last years issue of Hockey Hotties Magazine (that's what I call it, and they had a picture of him playing golf with the guy who's on the Del Taco commercials. Anyway that's where I got the correct spelling of Mario Lemieux's name. And do you know what? It STILL upsets my spell-checker. And I guess now we know why we don't ever read anything about Claude Lemieux anymore

Period 1:
Cloutier is in goal. I'm not watching this crap. Time to catch-up on my Tivo'ed shows.
  • End of Period 1: Kings 1, Penguins 2
Period 2:
The Cho brothers better win The Amazing Race. What they did for the Kentucky team was sooo sweet.
  • End of Period 2: Kings 3, Penguins 2
Period 3:
So I flipped back to the game just in time to see Cloutier escort the game winning goal into his net. And apparently the guy Malkin who scored it was like the first Penguin rookie to score a goal in 89 years, or something like that.

  • Final Score: Kings 3, Penguins 4
If someone could please explain this Cloutier thing to me, please do. Suck is as suck does. (I don't really know what that means, but I heard my dad saying when I went to the kitchen for some Sun Chips and it just sounds right.)

I'm out of room on my Tivo, so I have to watch Top Chef cuz I can't record it, so good night.
