Hockey Ugliness, House Update, and Dancing Video

That Penguins game felt so one-sided, it was awful. We get called for stupid minor things, but they can hurt our players and…nothing. It was so frustrating to watch. I don’t even want to discuss that goal they called a no-goal.

Time to come home and kick some butts.

And what is it with Nashville fans throwing catfish on the ice? They were even in the stands pouring beer over their redneck heads holding more fish! I heard they were Tennessee Titan players, too! NHL should really ban fans from doing that kind of shit. I mean, fans get ejected for throwing beer cans on the ice, but not fish?

Oh, and by the way, I don’t like it when Detroit fans throw the squid/octopus on the ice, either. It’s stupid!

Okay, rant over. For now. J

Got some pictures from our builders on Friday. The stone is now on the front of the house (yay!) and it’s ready for painting (on the inside).

See the stone around the garage and lower half of the front bedroom?

The kitchen area. All ready for paint and flooring.

This is looking out the back of the house. I wasn't expecting that middle
window (I said no to the fireplace and the window was optional), so we'll
probably put black curtains there since that's where the TV will go!
Thank goodness we didn't plan on wall mounting it!

I need something fun today. Saw part of this video at the Dragons game and enjoyed it so much, I found it on YouTube so I can share it with you. Let’s all dance!

So… How was your weekend? Sports-wise it sucked for me. Dragons lost on Friday and Saturday (froze at Saturday’s game—it was in the 40s), Vegas lost, and of course, Penguins lost. I hope the rest of the week turns out better for my teams.

Happy (grumbling) Monday!

Every fan base is absolutely convinced that the League has it in for their team. You should see what kind of crazy conspiracy stuff was flying around the Bruins fan site I hang around on during the Toronto series!

My guess is the official policy re: catfish throwing is the same as the official policy in Detroit: don't do it, you'll get tossed. I expect there is a lot of looking the other way, however (how the heck do you smuggle a catfish--or an octopus, for that matter, into a hockey rink???).

House is looking good, are they on target for you to move in when you're supposed to?

The inside is looking good!
We won't discuss the game.
I also think the throwing of octopus is just stupid.

Jeff - What really gets me is that it seems every fan base seems to think the Penguins get preferential treatment. That certainly is NOT the case. As for the house timeline, we haven't been told differently, so I assume we close just before Memorial Day.

Alex - Won't discuss the game--got it! :)

Do you have neighbors next to your house yet?

Can't wait to see the finished house.

Maria - Someone already lives in the house to the right (looking at it from the street). The lot on the left is no longer a lot. They're probably a month behind us. I can't wait to see the finished house, either!!
