Hush little baby don't you... WTF?!?!

I realized a few things while watching Tuesday’s game against Nashville: one, I probably shouldn’t have kids; two, I should not be around kids while watching hockey; and three, I still hate Jason Arnott.

My epiphany came, while holding my eight-week-old goddaughter (who is just a homemade ray of sunshine) when Radulov brought the game to 2–0.

“(Expletive deleted) Oh come on! What was that? What the (expletive deleted) are they doing out there??”

My rant was brought to a halt by the bug-eyed, jaw-dropped looks of my dear friend’s in-laws. And in grand tradition of some John Hughes-esque movie, the little ray of sunshine began to screech right on cue.

Panicked (as many childless people are when a baby cries) I searched for her mother. When asked what happened I replied, “Alexander Radulov just made it 2–0... Right through traffic... Right over Garon’s shoulder. I can’t believe it!” Again, faced with looks of disbelief and perhaps a bit of sadness, I thought it best to keep quiet.

Needless to say I was not given "baby privileges" for the remainder of the game. I might be paranoid but I believe their two-year-old was avoiding me as well.

I behaved and was exhilarated when Marty “Party” Reasoner gave us our lead of 4–3. Twenty-some seconds later, rage returned. Jason Arnott *shudder* swept in to tie the game. I don’t hate Arnott for that. He’s a hockey player and that’s his job. Although he's a jackass, the real reason I hate him dates back 10+ years ago: I saw him at Cowboys and he was wearing socks and sandals.

Unforgivable.

Amber lives in Edmonton. Everyday she tries to do her part in preserving nature. Tomorrow she's pickling squirrels. Amber doesn't sweat the petty thing and she doesn't pet the sweaty things.

I hate him because of all his illegitimate children left all over Edmonton.

They could ice a Pee Wee team by now!

I hate Jason Arnott because this one game I attended Boris Mironov nailed him in the face with a slap shot right in front of me and I nearly barfed from the sound of the impact.

Arnott was out for a long time, but I was the real victim

Even I wouldn't wear socks with sandals.

And I'll wear darn near anything tacky.
