I had this whole plan about how I was going to do a awesome recap about another movie (similar to my penultimate 2009 Game 20 recap) and I was surfing the Pay-Per-View for a movie that would provide the fodder for my singular wit and witticism. Alas, I settled on "Date Night" starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey.  This was largely due to the requirements that I had to be able to watch it while the 4-year-old was in the room, and Mrs. wouldn't let me get "The Expendables".  In summary, it was kinda meh and while that would give my plenty of opportunities for Wolski and Svatos jokes, I think you, the MHH faithful deserve more.  So I'm going to phone it in completely rather than half-heartedly, cuz that's how I roll.

That's amazing, Jeremy, but I'm gonna go home now and fart into a shoe box.

He turned the gun sideways! That's a kill shot!

Forget about the anal!

If I'm going to get whacked off I at least want to know why.

Now you get up there and work that pole like a Russian immigrant.

There, that should set of the Google searches for days....

Quick Hits

Some of the casting in this movie was sublime.  Mark Wahlberg was understandably awesome, but James Franco and Mila Kunis were great in their bit roles as well, especially Franco.  Personal favorites like Bill Burr and Kristen Wiig had small parts as well.  Also, I recognized Mark Ruffalo on site.  I think having a second kid may have finally broken my will to live.

Avs lost in OT 4-3 to the Panthers in a game 7 people saw.  Apparently, John-Michael Liles, Ryan O'Reilly, and the red-hot Matt Duchene scored for the Avalanche.  They mustered 25 shots to match the toothless Panthers' output and managed to squeak out ANOTHER loser point on this Eastern Conference smorgasbord after giving up a goal a whopping 43 seconds into the extra period.  It appears from the TSN boxscore that the Avs blew two leads and KYLE QUINCEY MANAGED TO GET HIS FIRST POINT OF THE SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY $H!T I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT ELSE TO WRITE AT THIS POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next Up

Avs visit the Thrashers on Friday.
