Everything sucks right now: 'Hawks drop Game 3 in OT


There are so many ridiculous, un-edited thoughts running through my mind right now. I’d like to find  Bill McCreary and flood his hotel room with billions of fire ants while I watch in ecstasy as they chew his face off little by little. I hope Q-Stache is laying face down in his pillow with tears pouring out of his eyes wondering why he called a line change 2 seconds after a neutral zone face-off loss which led to the losing goal — and all this after the ‘Hawks had lost over 60 percent of the face-offs all night.

More importantly, I’m hoping the ‘Hawks are all languishing in the fact they’ve played like dog shit for three games in the Stanley Cup finals and that it finally caught up to them. Taking a third-period lead off of what should be a deflating-to-the-home-team breakaway goal on the road from your star player,  Patrick Kane, who hasn’t been on the score sheet all series should last more than 20 goddamn, motherfucking seconds.

Alas, I’ll hold back until tomorrow. I’m getting drunk. Fuck it. Right now, all I can do is be a pessimist and tell you this series is as good as fucking tied, and we’re going to be watching a critical Game 5 on Sunday at the United Center praying the Blackhawks don’t have to go back to Philadelphia down 3-2 — because right now, it seems completely feasible.

I’m not ready to look at any positives. I want to destroy everything in my path and will probably smoke an entire pack of cigarettes within the next 45 minutes.

Fuck everything. We’ll catch up tomorrow with some more relaxed, coherent thoughts.

    What an awesome, awesome game! 2 thoughts:

    1. Yes, you have every right to be mad at the refs. I will easily concede the fact that they missed a lot on my Flyers. No argument, no question.
    2. The OT non-goal, why didn’t play continue when they poked it in after it straddled the line? Why was it considered dead? You can’t say play stops when the horn goes off, because of the earlier Hartnell goal.

    I would have to assume that between the time the puck straddled the line and Carter poked it in, the ref must have whistled play dead. I assume that when Niemi quasi-covered it, the ref lost sight of it and blew it dead… we just couldn’t hear it over the sound of the premature goal horn and the fans erupting… I would have to assume that was the case because no one on the Flyers side or even the bench tried to argue that point… That leads me to believe that they heard a whistle that we did not…

    Also, let’s go Flyers!

      I’m gonna have to assume you’re right, for exactly the reasons you stated. Still would have been nice for the commentators to point that out, or for someone in the media to mention that.

    Just stumbled onto your blog and it’s great. Hope you didn’t do anything too destructive after you wrote that last night!

    Wow, I don’t know how anyone could have described my feeling of frustration after that game any better. It made me feel a bit better knowing that there are other people out there with the same level of frustration.

    I grumbled about flat play from Toews early in round 1, and WOW did he turn it on and shut me up. Sadly though he’s been back to floating in the finals and the team is starting to follow him more and more. The lead needs to come from the leader! Comon Captain!
