    Spaceman, you hit it right on the head. Excellent explanation of what's wrong with the game - and NHL refereeing - today. :thumb

    Moore is not a goon and that is not his role on the team. Betuzzi got what he deserved. Moore is a basic rookie trying to make the team, checked Naslund (and I was at the game) with a hit that the league later reviewed and deemed legal. Between Crawford, the GM, May and Ruutu, the whole thing got totally out of control and they should suffer the consequences. What has been lost here is the Avs scored five (yes 5!!!) goals on these posers in the first period. Vancouver basically sank to a gutter position and decided to hurt anybody they could.

    No kidding. While his current suspension is the remainder of the season,
    I hope he gets the boot. And his sorry assed apology, that's a total crock.
    You don't do that to someone and then (paraphrasing) say "I'm not a mean
    guy".

    Dood needs some anger management classes.

    Hockey is for folks that couldn't make the football team.

    Take it from someone who's played both sports... Hockey is the more difficult sport. If for no other reason than because you have to think on the fy in hockey. You don't have a play called every 30 seconds :rolleyes

    I don't know, BananaBoy :rofl

    The fires have quelled, I believe. Liz and I picked out countertops and paint yesterday... It's hard to get there during the week, since I work 'til 2000 and the house is about 90 miles out of the way from the room I'm renting.

    I'm still hoping late April. :icy

    Late April????

    Fuck me, bwana. Took 35 days start to finish for my home. Now granted, mine is a simpler design, but having seen what yours is like and knowing what it takes to build that around here it appears to me that it takes y'all 2 1/2 to 3 times as long to build a house.

    Guess that comes with having a year round building season down there.

    Yeah, and Hurricanes. They have to meet a standard set for Southern Florida after Hurricane Andrew... to be honest we don't need it up here, but I'll take it, better stronger than weaker, you know. That and the inspection process. Hell you might wait a week for an inspector to pass something... and your dead in the water until he does.
