TRH GAMEDAY 5 – ST. LOUIS BLUES: PUT A RING ON IT

SOON-lion

 

How ya feeling Kings fans!? Pretty damn good, right!? And just think, a week ago you were all freaking out over that pathetic opener and one “Meh” loss to Phoenix Arizona. But look at you now! Rollin’ up to Yogurtland like a BOSS. Getting all seasonal with some delicious pumpkin fro-yo.

Maybe, like me, you tried to tell the nice young man at the counter that the Kings had, in fact, scored SIX goals, so I’m pretty sure Mr.Yogurtland would have wanted us all to celebrate the occasion with SIX free ounces. Hope you had more luck with that than I did.

But don’t get too puffed up yet – these last two wins are a lot like that one time at an airport bar when some old dudes in middle management flirted with you. Sure, it felt good, but you know it’s only because of their low level of expectation NOT because you are anywhere near a “10.” Or even a “7.” Or even an “LA 3.”

But it gets you through, doesn’t it?

Unlike the fro-yo, something I will be enjoying for QUITE some time is that shorthanded goal Tyler Toffoli scored. I’m going to post it again, just because it makes me THAT happy.

I’ve pretty much been watching it in an endless glorious loop for the last few days. Each time it reaches its marvelous crescendo, I whisper in a low, husky voice, “My gaaawdd. That is.Just.So.Magnificent.” I can only imagine how creepy that must sound to my co-workers sitting in the stone silence of our cubicle prison.

But that was Tuesday. And today is a new day. We are now facing a worthy adversary in the St. Louis Blues. They have game both on and off the ice. Or did you forget about the puppies?

Never forget about the puppies.

That is some real-deal-Captain-America-superhero-shit right there.
Oh, the mind-games! Just shows you just how wily and manipulative they can be.
Never let you guard down!

Look how relatable and harmless he seems. DON’T fall for it.

I’m excited to see what magic That 70s Line™ has in store for us, but one thing IS certain for everyone going to the game tonight: Staples Center is gonna…

If you are one of the lucky fans who get to attend tonight’s game, PLEASE do not walk up to the ushers like this. Yes, yes, we all see what you’re doing there, but those nice people are there to maintain peace and order, not to deal with your nonsense.

TENDER GOALIE SWIPE TO VICTORY™
