Act Like You’ve Been There Before

Act like you’ve been there before… it’s one of my favorite sayings… especially when making fun of a friend. It basically means that when you get the phone number of that hot girl you’ve been after or you score a game winning touchdown… act like you’ve been there before. For example… last week Columbus Blue Jacket Jason Williams scores this shootout goal (the first one, although the 2nd goal is nice too):

Cool as a cucumber.

And then last night, to secure 2 points in a victory against the Minnesota Wild, 19 Year Old Drew Doughty does this:

I have a feeling if 19 Year Old Drew Doughty had been in the league for a few more seasons, he could have played off this goal as intentional. I mean, seriously, how is a guy that looks like this going to act like he’s been there before?

Kings 2, Wild 1 (SO)

Is there anything more exciting in pro sports than a Jarret Stoll – Mikko Koivu faceoff battle? Those guys were going at it all night. 2 great points earned. 1 shitty point given up to the Minnesota Wild. 4 points out of a playoff spot.

Another huge game tonight, against the Philadelphia Flyers who are coming off a big win against the Washington Capitals yesterday. And since San Jose is the only other Western Conference team to play tonight, it would be prudent to win this game and pick up 2 points. No word on when Captain Brown may return, but hopefully he’ll make a special appearance tonight.
