I was just hosting a Townhall meeting on the overhead when an AIM popped up. Could've been horrible...thank god it wasn't. I'll make sure to double check that next time...

Since I'm suffering from hockey-withdrawal I'm watching the game 5 against the Pens again:

1) Watching the replays of Asham's shot for the 1-0 there is only one word to describe it: Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Over the defender's stick, over Fleury's shoulder, right into the corner of the pipes. Simply perfect.

2) It is almost cute how Malkin tries to sell the goal he kicked in.

3) It's a joke how Briere got a penalty but Orpik got not. Actually Orpik got away with at least three penalties in the 2nd period alone.

4) Giroux is going to be one of the best players in the league in a few years.

5) Fleury is absolutely the only reason the Pens won that series.

6) At least half of the arena music they played in Pittsburgh has appeared in a Guitar Hero or Rock Band game.

7) The Mellon Arena has really really ****ed up boards.

8) They key to solve the Flowerpot is to are east-west passes and shooting high on them.

In reference to the Flyers 'shopping Emery and Pronger's head on Flyer jerseys.....

I guess they saw my work and wanted to one-up me..LOL.

Personally, I think that's kinda cheesy (for them). Wait ;til you have some pics...Jeesh.

Saying that he was the only reason is hilarious.

Fleury had two phenomenal games in the series. He certainly wasn't the reason the Pens won Game 1 or Game 6, though.

I'm still laughing about the Canadiens trade. I love watching them collectively crash and burn.

He wasn't even the reason they won Game 2.

I like this move from Montreal's perspective even though Gomez's salary is too high.

He played very well in that game. His save on Carter kept the Pens close enough to tie it and was a defining moment in the series.

If you can consistently get shots to the top shelf after east-west passes, you're going to score at a nice rate against any goalie (not just Fleury).

So after being sick since Saturday I was officially diagnosed with Swine Flu today. Tested positive for Influenza A, which the only strain going around is Swine Flu. Hopefully it is, because if its another kind we are screwed aka bird flu. Luckily I gave my sister Swine Flu on Sunday and now she has it too, so we are sequestered together. Any one have any good movies to watch or something? Once you start taking the meds you are supposed to wait a week to go near people again so we need things to do. After eating taco bell, wearing sombreros, and laughing about it we kinda got bored. My worse day with Swine Flu was Saturday and overall I found the virus to be pretty weak sauce.

I need three days of activities...or actually two since tomorrow I can be all over UFA day instead of being at work.

I'm glad you're okay, but you are Superman, so that might explaine why you found the virus to be such weaksauce? I didn't know Superman could even get swine flu (this must be one bad ass strain of influenza).

The new UFC game is kind of fun if you're into MMA. Not great, but it'll kill some time.
