That perfectly sums it up. Two of the most uninspired back to back games I've ever seen from any sports organization.

Forget about the Stanley Cup. Forget about even making the playoffs. Right now even competing for 29th place seems out of reach.

Still trying to grasp the notion that the "team" that had me so amped over the summer has turned into this sorry collection of misfits.

4-0 in ten minutes is like a few of those games during year one against the Avs where we down 7-0 or something like that after one period.

I'm with you, Count, that seems like it happened in a different universe! Many of us thought that the playoffs were well within reach, if not a first-round victory. How could the team we saw as that competitive turn out to be so bad as to be farther out of 29th than any cellar-dweller since the Jackets entered the league? To fall that far and be that great a disappointment is one reason that fans such as myself, usually very supportive and positive, have become so vigorously opposed to the current management.

As if watching the last two Jackets games wasn't bad enough, I woke up this morning with the stomach flu.

Ugh!

Not sure which is worse!

What a pretty poor effort. At least Nash is padding his stats right now.

Vanilla is definitely not the way to go about adapting the "Most Interesting Man in the World" meme.

I am shooting for the "most average man alive" meme. Sam could probably tell you who that is, as I've see him reference that awesome movie before.

Speaking of this...

Over 11 years, I pretty much NEVER missed watching a game. If I wasn't there, I watched on TV. The latter part of this season, I find it hard to put myself through it. I usually at least start the game and see how much heartburn it's going to cause, but after seeing Sunday's game live I couldn't even turn it on last night.

The text alerts from NHL Gamecenter pretty much told me all I needed to know. God, I can't wait for this season to be over. I just wish I had more faith that something would actually be done to improve things this summer.

"Howson and Priest are safe." Ugh.

He golfs at public courses on the weekends, shooting a 94 average.

He alternates between classic rock and talk radio.

He drives a 2004 Mercury Sable.

He brews Maxwell House at home, and takes it with a splash of cream and a dash of sugar.

He still has a newspaper subscription, but only to try (and fail at) the crossword.

He is...the most average man in the world.

haha, what's funny is that I hit some of those. 3 of 5. How about a 2006 Equinox? Oh and I hate coffee. My beverage of choice is water, that's all I really drink. How about that as average?

If you're also 5'10" and 180 pounds, with a slightly receding hairline, glasses that are needed but not mandatory, and a soft abdomen, then I think I'll have moved from "brilliant" to "clairvoyant". Or at least "stalker".

Oops you fell down a bit here.

6ft, 210 (don't look like I'm 210 however), do have glasses (but quite mandatory), a full head of hair, a not for long soft abdomen (working out a lot. Yep Crossfit FTW. Exercise is a bad word in the technical arena.).

Oh, yeah... And Detroit sucks.

I didn't fall down, I just chose not to believe that my EXACT TWIN was on these boards.

I have to hand it to you guys. You have kept a great sense of humor. I realize it's a "laugh or drink Drano" situation, but still, kudos.

It's funny because last season at first I was upset that I was six hours ahead of most games, and couldn't find a reliable solution to be able to watch them. Then about half the way through the season I realized it wasn't a big deal since they were ****** anyway. Then I moved to Ohio again and was glad that I could watch the games... but after about 20 or so I realized they were on the **** train again, and I am too busy to waste 3 hours every other night trying to watch that train not run over my expectations and hopes on the rails Also I must say that trying to watch games online was giving my computer viruses I think.

So now I watch at the gym if it happens to be on, but if someone walks in and changes the tv to car racing or basketball or something, I don't get angry like I would have a few years ago, when it was like a life and death matter

Hopefully next season will be different, of course...

Consider what many of us grew up with. We moved past the Drano stage, possibly because the only sweet taste we know isn't victory...it's ice cream.

Is that don't look on the upside or downside-big diff

And I agree detroit sucks- but their technique is much different than the Blue Jackets suck. Sort of like, well, nevermind
