June already, eh?
what is the English WFTD? am I missing it?
Of June, I mean....
It seems that my preview function is not working this morning.
“Remora” is the word.
Yeah. Tempus fugit.
(cue Dean Martin singing voice)
When a fish has a disc
He attached to a ship
When a shark has a friend
Who sticks onto his end
bueno. beeteedubs, my danny was commentating on the game last night, he is so adorbs!
Didn’t seem to be much of a game to commentate on.
besides the point, he was on tv and in the public eye, telling those classless jack@$$es at the Penguins, okay you dumped me, after leaving me twisting in the wind for 3 weeks, but I am going to land on my feet and go on to bigger and better things, you losers.
Well, good thing they didn’t hire Pierre McGuire or that would have been *awkward*. ;-)
in soooo many ways. apparently pierre experienced some butthurt in not getting that job.
He was with the Penguins as a scout during the early 90s Cup period. But his record as a coach/GM makes him well suited for broadcasting.
Yikes, the finals are turning into a sweep.
he’s always such a creeper manhandling the players when he talks to them, and he has a .... well you know what I want to say here... for Sid, so it seemed he wanted in that locker room with all those naked Penguins. Not that there’s anything wrong with that ; )
Has anyone seen him and Jay Carney in the same room?
xsboy is happy. He has no allegiance to either team, but so many of his SU teammates are Rain-jahz fans, and he said they are the most obnoxious fans on the planet, that he wants them shut up by a sweep ; ) sorry, truthy.
dan bylsma and jay carney? are you high? NO resemblance other than both wearing glasses.
No offense to the soon to be family member, but has he met other Flyers fans? And don’t get me started on the bandwagon Chicago fans. Omigosh, they are the rudest bunch.
