In case you didn't know, the Avalanche are a terrible hockey team. No, no, there's no debating it. Some of you have finally made me see the light. However, some of you watched the entirety of last night's game and you should be rewarded for those efforts. So here's the breakdown of last night's Masochistic Mumblers:
Canary and Steve holding down the fort. I hope that continues to be true moving forward.
Some levity was brought to the table last night, courtesy of Bob in Boulder and Do Not Feed the Octopus talking about goat penis or something:
All of the Avalanche penises are currently in goats.
That's some next level shit right there.
Also, mad props to A.J. for dropping in to let us know that he's still kickin'. He had an amusing anecdote to share:
So a hospital story
I was released yesterday, stayed at a friends place last night, and was dropped off at home this morning. I’ve been sleeping for basically the last 10 hours and now that I’m awake I regret ever waking up. I just took my pain meds which means my period of lucidity is going to disappear very soon. So I figured I’d share a story while I still have the use of my fingers.
Remember the conversation last week about my final thoughts before I went under? I do. What I don’t remember, however, is that after everything got going and they hit me with the drugs, I started reciting a famous Muhammad Ali speech from a conference in which he repeatedly stated "I’ma show you how great I am". In case you want to see the real thing, click on this baddie. More profound than "fart" followed by giggles but definitely came from nowhere. I’ll take it.
I think I speak for all the non assholes on the site when I say get well soon, FunkyHalfawaffle.
