2 Shots of Baseball 2 Pints of Hockey

2 and 2

Many Expos fans may hate to see the Nationals succeed in any way and hope that they stay a seller dweller forever. Unfortunately that did happen last year, although there were probably a lot of smirks when Stephen Strasburg was shut down and would be pitching in the playoffs, then watching the Nats get eliminated 3 games to 2 to the St. Louis Cardinals. Now with the 2013 season approaching the Nats look to continue their success this season with Stephen Strasburg to pitch the entire season and what the Nationals hope a second consecutive post-season run.

The Saboteur: Part 1 The Game

The Saboteur

This is my first none sports related blog. I have been meaning to write a blog like this for a while, but I have only had the opportunity up until now to write something that was pertaining solely to sports. This blog will also be a two-part blog because of how long it is. This is part one and part two will come out next week. I hope that you enjoy it and please feel free to leave feedback, like it and share it with your friends.

Bring back Pandemic! OR At least MAKE A SABOTEUR TWO! What am I asking for? Well it would certainly be nice if there would be a sequel to a really interesting and violent game called The Saboteur. The Saboteur is set during World War II in German occupied France and your character is an Irish race car mechanic/racer who drinks a lot and is trapped in France during this time. Continue reading

Two NHL Cents: Cooke and Rinne

Matt Cook and Pekka Rinne

Matt Cook and Pekka Rinne

Poor Matt Cooke, even when he tries to stay away from controversy he manages to find it and anger a whole mess of people. For those who do not know what happened Matt Cooke had been part of an unfortunate play in a game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators. The play happened with Cooke pinning Ottawa defensemen Erik Karlsson into the boards and having his skate cut Karlssons Achilles tendon on his left foot to about 70% damage. Continue reading

NHL: Five Quick Thoughts

4 picks in 1

To quote the guys from PTI (Pardon the Interruption) “Happy Trails Yannick Weber” The Montreal Canadiens defensemen seems to be at the end of his time with the team. The twenty-four year old Swiss defenseman has possibly played his last game in Montreal on January 27th (2013). He had 10 minutes of ice-time with no shots or points recorded. Why does it seem like the end for him? It is pretty simple, in Montreal there are eight defensemen on the team and Weber is 8th on the depth chart behind Thomas Kaberle. Continue reading

3 in 1: Harbowl, Quarterbacks and NHL Fantasy

3-1

This week I decided to try something new, I will be sharing three quick blogs in one with different topics for each one. I hope that you enjoy all three, this is of course a trial and I would be very grateful to hear some of  your opinions on them to help tweak them, or if I should make these into 3 separate blogs and distribute them throughout the week. Something around those lines, thanks a lot and hope you enjoy them!

So that game last night was one heck of a game! The game included a strong lead by the Baltimore Ravens thanks to Joe Flacco and the offense and a good defensive showing lead by Ray Lewis stopped the 49ers and lead at the half 21-6. Then there was the so-so half-time show. I only say mediocre, because I am not a fan of that kind of music, however it was interesting to watch the show but I watch the Superbowl for the football; not the halftime show. Continue reading
