The Devil Went Down To Georgia

And they kicked some Thrasher ass. EVERY time the Devils come to Atlanta, they play that Charlie Daniels song. I guess it IS quite clever.

I hate when these two teams play. These are my favorite two teams. I am always so excited to see the Devils when they come to town. Strange things have happened for the Devils the last times we've played this year:

  • October 16 - Brian Rolston gets hurt and is out for several weeks. (Marty also gets his 97th shut out)

  • November 1 - a day that still send chills down my spine and puts a lump in my throat...Marty Brodeur, the God of the Pipes, goes down with an elbow injury that will require surgery and put him out for 3 months *gasp*

  • January 8 - We shut the Devils out!

So I was wondering if anything crazy or unusual would happen. Besides Collin White leaving the game with a sore hand, the only thing that happened was us getting our asses whipped. Par for the course! Devils win 5-1. Kari loses his mind and throws his stick like a javelin into the net. Mr. Moose comes in, takes over and locks it down. No more scoring for you Devils!

Warm Ups!

Ummmm tough boys! In my perfect world Boultsie is telling Clarkson "The next time you see me my fist will be in your face."

Clarkson says: "Bring it bitch."

More Clarkson

Andy Greene

A pack of Devils

Hell yes. As a rule, I like my guys dark. On the other hand, I adore Swedes. A Swedish black guy, are you getting me??? Hotness aside, I love Oduya because of his name. I couldn't hear it last season without cracking up. Johnny Oduya...sounds like a leprechaun.

Oduya??? O would I :)

Good on you, Gionta! In the program his height is listed as 5'7''. Good for you for being honest, unlike that midget St. Louis who claims to be 5'9''. No way in hell is St. Louis 5'9'' if Gionta is 5'7''.

All the ladies love Shanny. That was the #1 request I got. Here ya go!

On our side Moose and new call up, Stuart are watching. Who knew Stuart was so cute!!
Stuart: Is that chick wearing a Manitoba Moose Jersey?
Moose: Yes. She is my #1 fan. She makes bitching posters for me sometimes.
Stuart: So why is she over on the Devils side taking pictures?
Moose: Shut up.

Clemmer!! I was super excited to see Clemmensen. I'm so impressed with the job that he's done since Marty has been down. I'm interested to see how the goalie situation in New Jersey plays out.

BTW, I freaking HATE Clemmer's pads. Obviously the man knows what he is doing, but it just seem nuts to me that you would have pads that so contrast with the ice. Seems it would make it easier to shoot on. AGAIN, what do I know though?

Weeksie!!! I was excited to see Weekes again. He always seems like such a nice guy and one good thing about our loss is Weekes got a win. I hate that he's not been able to carry the team in Marty's absence. Of course that's what happens when you've been rotting on the bench unused. They've done him quite a disservice.

Hey handsome! Weekesie is one of the few goalies I think looks better out of the mask.

Everyone's favorite Lithuanian, Dainius Zubrus

*Insert Frankenstein/Hulk jokes*

Hulk angry, Hulk smash.
I'm pissed at Bobby right now because he was rough with my Moose and knocked him down. You don't fucking knock down the goalie and you damn well don't knock down my Moose.
Somebody get me some torches and pitchforks so I can get Holikenstien under control.

Devils warming up.

So the game begins. I'm in section 110, Row T. It's kind of far back, but cool because I'm against the wall and on the isle. Down fall I have to shoot my pics through the net.

Oh great, Devils score. They will do that 4 more times.


Kari taking a drink and trying to calm down. They should put liquor in his water bottle.

I love this pic because you can see the puck in action. It's no ESPN Magazine photo, but I'm also not on the glass with a photo hole and using a billion dollar camera.

More action

Boulton doesn't respect his elders, he fights Shanahan.

Some more hockey discussion

What's that ice girl doing to Weekesie???

Hmmm. Not sure what she was doing to Weekesie, but Moose looks like he is thinking of doing something to her. Shame on you Moose ;) What would Mrs. Moose say?? Moose doesn't have time to be gawking, he's gotta go get hung out to dry by his defense. Fortunately he didn't let any goals in and wasn't saddled with yet another loss.

Another picture I like because you can see the puck. Weekesie just made a good save.

The boys had a lot to talk about tonight.

Moose doing his little pin ball flippers warm up.

One cool part of the game came when J Turd...I mean J Bird grabs someone from the audience to play a game with. In this case it was the Higher or Lower game. They show you home depot products and give you a price, you say whether the actual cost is higher or lower than what they say. If you win, at the end you get to choose a square out of 9 squares, you win what's behind it. It has "win all," "lose all," and a variety of prizes. Well this entire game was a set up. When the guy got to go to the board and pick a square, low and behold it was an engagement ring! He got down on one knee and the crowd went nuts. Definitely the best arena proposal. I only took a picture of them because I don't like J Bird. This was way before they even started playing.

Well, we lost, no shit, we always do. As I was sitting in the arena I had a thought. "I wonder if Doc and Chico are here." So I got the binoculars and starting looking in the suites and holy shit there they were. I went nuts and started yelling to Shauna "THERE THEY ARE!!! I SEEM THEM." She goes nuts and starts yelling "WHERE??? WHERE???" So we totally dorked out because we could see Doc and Chico. I'm wondering why they had to sit in the ghetto box. It looks like it's falling apart.

Love the Shanny pics, and of course the Hedberg ones. Explain to me how Bobby didn't get a roughing call on Army later on? At least they caught him for nailing Moose. Bastard.

I am SO glad that man is off of our team.

OMG when he nailed Moose I came up out of my seat yelling. My friend is a huge Bobby Holik fan and I was yelling at her. She was cracking up.
