    Ah, Kobie, there's hope for you yet! Any man who sees the charm oozing from The Donald is a-okay by me.

    I'm just pissed today about the ****ing Rangers. I hope The Donald buys them and fires all of their asses.

    1. True, he wasn't convicted, which is why I didn't say he was. He did settle for a rather large sum, and his comments regarding the situation are on record.

    2. He's definitely guilty of being an abysmal owner whose team was the laughingstock of pro sports for three decades, and the housing suit wasn't his only transgression.

    I agree. He's an idiot for trusting her. He's just a different kind of idiot from someone like Paula Deen.

    Wow, did they **** the bed. I had a feeling this one was going 7, but they got dickstomped last night. Gotta show up better than that. You can't let a guy like Simmonds camp out in front of your net all night. He might as well have brought a tent.

    I'm no Rangers fan (Sabres here ), but can we finally get over this idea that Henrik Lundqvist is a top-5 goalie? Not anymore.

    Roger that, I'll go back and check. Apologize if it's warranted.

    You, my little Liberal friend, are as charming as The Donald, and that's saying a lot, because he oozes charm out of every pore and orifice.

    Sabres? BAWAWAWWAWAHAHAHHA <thud>.

    The Swedish sieve better lose his ****ing job after last night. He can take ****ing Nash with him wherever he goes. I will bombard Sather with emails if he doesn't can Lundqvist who is overpaid, overrated, and a ****ing nightmare.

    I'm going to have a heart attack tonight if they lose, but neither one of them will get past the Pens anyway, who won't get past the Bruins.

    Freaking Simmonds. Someone better smash him into the boards tonight. A ****ing hat trick. UGH!

    Fair 'nuff though settling may be a financial decision as it can be cheaper than actually mounting a defense.

    I'll take your word on #2 - I'm not much of a basketball fan - more baseball and football.

    I'm pretty much a fan of all sports, and I absorb way more information regarding all this stuff than is clinically healthy.

    Simmonds scored three goals that probably traveled a combined total of six feet after the puck hit his stick. Their defense was abysmal.

    I think we're staring a Bruins-Blackhawks final straight in the face. Definitely not the Sharks; they're doing their annual rite-of-spring gag job out west.
