GDB11: Top o' the morning to you

What are you doing reading this? Seriously. Like WHAT time does this game start?

We love nothing more than hockey first thing in the morning. Seriously, first the Hallowe'en Massacre Friday night, where we ingested most of a cube of bud light and didn't wear a costume though it was a Hallowe'en party. The "didn't-think-people-were-dressing-up-and-came-straight-from work-with-no-costume-guy. "

Then back to back matinees? WTF?

So Saturday at noon we went to bed super late and woke up super hungover and forgot the game started at one. Then we get a text from Spyn Cycle as we walked through the door that says "I just found out the game started at one. Did you know that?" No. But luckily the Justice League has better time management skills. Seriously we forget everything. We need to gave a carrier pigeon flap against he door to remind us 30 mins before the game starts.

God damn Americans NHL Executives and their love for matinees.

Yeah we went there girlfriend.

Hockey games are best played when it's minus thirty out and you haven't been seen the sun for hours already. Pitch black, not 11 AM - the day after a 1 PM Game and came out of nowhere. Late. Like 8:30 - 9:00 PM in Newfoundland late. This ain't the NFL.

Will the Oilers win two in a row? Man, we hope so. A win today and they can make all the games matinees if it will help.

Interestingly enough, I think the Oilers have a winning record when it comes to matinee games.

Did anyone elses clocks mysteriously wind themselves back an hour? Shouldn't they have some kind of public service announcement about this. I guess I should start watching less Project Runway and more news.

back in the 80's the Oilers would always lose afternoon games as many of them still had yet to go to bed from the crazy "hey we're oilers and we're awesome" parties the night before".

Good ol Rod even sounded as if he was about to lose his lunch calling a horrible blow out at the hands of the Hartford Whalers one sunday afternoon.

Lets hope it wasn't a party in Captain Moreau's room last night.

If there's one person MacT listens to it's MacT's instincts.

MacT: "What shall I eat for breakfast?" MacT's instincts: "Thou shalt eat Freeeench Toaaast." MacT: "I'm going with my instincts on this one. French Toast it is."

The early games are weird for everyone, even announcers. It takes a lot of dedication to drink that much by noon.
