>Jerseylicious (and other stories)
First of all, tonight’s the first night of Hanukkah. Smoke some marijuanukkah, drink a gin and tonukkah.
Next, I was going to do a post of DECC memories from RWD friends and family. The only people who responded were FHG and my mom. See, I don’t really have any readers. Sadness.
Then, I saw this article today about the Canadian WJC roster announcements. (Thanks to Tom from Without a Peer!) O, Canada, you crazy mofos. Why can’t you respect the players and the decisions they made? Dylan Olsen will be attending their tryouts. (The article shows a picture of him. It looks like he is being punched in the back.) Last year he was snubbed from the team. Now, of course, he was young and still developing, but Team Canada did some funky things. Like inviting Patrick Wiercioch, and then when he arrived (after missing the Denver vs. Duluth game), telling him his knee injury, which they had already known about, was going to keep him off the team. They could have just picked up the phone and reached out and touched someone, but instead they flew him there to jerk him around. Odd, no?
I still hope for the best, that Dylan Olsen will come back to tUMD in January with a silver medal for Team Canada, and that Justin Faulk will come back with a gold for Team USA!!! I will be rooting for Dylan ALL THE WAY!!!!
Okay, finally. There’s going to be a jersey auction this weekend. Sigh. Here’s a photo of the jerseys that the team will wear. It’s a 1960s throwback, naturally. But WHAT DO I DO??? Last year’s jersey auction nearly killed me. Seriously, the 2nd intermission, when I was waiting to find out if I’d get my Seidel jersey, was the longest 15 minutes of my life.
I don’t know what to do. I’m not sure who I want to bid on. Do I go all in and bid on My Jacky’s jersey? Or do I try for an under-the-radar guy? I don’t know! Actually I have a plan on another possible jersey but we’ll see. I’m getting all nervous just thinking about the possibility that I don’t win a jersey. This is so upsetting! And probably a sign that I need a straitjacket instead.
Two days!!!! Then hockey!!!! And football!!!! Anyone else planning on going to the football game? I’m making a trip to Fleet Farm to stock up on foot warmers.
