I just wanted to post this somewhere
Per usual, John Belushi is pure genius in this early audition tape. Check out the full collection of comedian audition tapes on Flavorwire.
I’m baaaaaaa-aaack. The Caps are looking for their first win this afternoon against Buffalo. Washington
is bad hasn’t looked quite right this season, with players thinking through the game rather than skating. Everyone’s learning a new system, and some growing pains are expected. A shortened training camp was not helpful, but the Caps need to start winning, not start making excuses. A 4 game losing streak this year is more like a 7 game skid in a full season, so not good. A quick note: I couldn’t actually watch the last game (L-Devils), but we I’m going to believe that taking a team into overtime was a good sign. Baby steps.
What I’d like to see:
More top line production: Backstrom has 2 assists, Ovechkin has one. The only young gun (still in DC) with a goal is Mike Green. Our leading scorer is Joel Ward. That’s great for him, but not what you want to see.
Ovechkin level somebody: does this need explaining?
A win, dammit.
What I don’t want to see:
An early deficit; score early, score often. Get the fans back into it.
A deflated fan base: give the players some energy, As Thom Loverro (@thomloverro) put it: “Did I wander into a #Wizards game? It’s like a mausoleum in Verizon Center..” Adherance to WIDWTS #1 would help a lot with this.
Another loss, dammit.
Hockey’s back! I’m a game late, but I’m gonna try and start writing more often now that there’s a season. We need to work on our penalty kill. It’s great to see Tom Poti back out there, good for him.
Give l00kforthecellardoor a follow, I promise you’ll see some cool photos. She’s also a caps fan and a cool person, so what more do you need?
Right about now I should be looking forward to hockey, but its hard when there’s a lockout in the air. And folks, it doesn’t look like its going anywhere soon. But, for the first time in decades, there is SOMETHING ELSE EXCITING IN DC SPORTS!
The once woeful Nationals are going to the playoffs! I want to get back to posting on a semi-regular basis, and a lot of it will probably have to do with baseball. I haven’t really tumblrd during baseball season, but I love the game, and I’ve been following the Nats all year. I’ll have some opinions to throw around.
Some other topics might be fantasy football (FU AARON RODGERS), college football, school, and the usual complement of reblogs and personal posts. And oh yeah, THIS GUY:
It’s so nice having multiple relevant franchises. It’s been a while tumblr, but it’s good to be back.
It is Friday, so here is a photo of two baby platypuses wearing fedoras.
