The entire Dallas roster knew that Turco hadn't won at Joe Louis Arena as a professional coming in here Saturday. So when he played 'Yes I Can' hockey, what choice did the Stars have but to do the same?"

I heard that McKinney yearbook story on the radio this morning...that's crazy!!

They better not pull those shenanigans with our church directory. : )

What?!? You're not going to show *the* picture?!?

They may not smoke marijuana in Muskogee, but they sure as heck have been inhaling something to miss the way they did.

Yes, I know the story from Muskogee. The new mayor definitely has his work cut out for him.

Stan the Man! GO CARDS!

Hey, how 'bout them Stars winning the last two and making the Wings quake in their skates a bit? Hope they pull even tonight and then take the series.

I'm definitely puttin' on the foil for tonight's game, brutha!

Incidentally, you've got a double whammy tonight, with the Spurs in a Game 7 as well.

I guess you'll have to TiVo wrestling and the Bachelorette to watch later. At least, I hope that's the pecking order.


Okay ... I will share *the* picture with those who request it, but via email. I don't want to desecrate my blog!

Is Stan the Man or what? He could have taken the day off and tried for the record back home, but no way, Jose. He came off the bench and cranked one out so they could win the game.

I'm sure the Cubs were just loving it.

"Two balls, two strikes. Stan waits. Now the stretch, from the belt, here's the pitch. Line ... there it is! Into left field! Hit No. 3,000. A run has scored. Musial around first, on his way to second with a double. Holy Cow, he came through!"

Good point, Michelle.

They could do some crazy things with our photos for that directory.

I was kind of hoping they would/could touch up mine to drop 30-40 pounds and shrink my fat neck, but now at least I have an excuse if I'm not happy with the finished product.

My mother just retired last month . . . from Lifetouch.

Perfect timing.

I'll see you in the finals!


Can I get an AMEN, Rev?

I am incredibly slooged to have been awarded the comment of the week(be careful not to take that usage out of context).

Thanks for the link to your post on the definition of slooge, although I must admit that I was very slooged after reading it (again, be careful not to take that out of context). I am undecided as to whether I like it, seeing as it is such a vague term. If I decide to adopt such a term (which I think is highly unlikely) and take it back to Canada with me (even more unlikely), I will be sure to let you know (Do you have the copyright on it or is it public domain?).

PS - Sorry about your sloogey Stars. I guess they really slooged it this time (I don't think you will have any problem concerning the context here).

Next we'll have to bring you up to speed on "good bull" versus "bad bull," as in the Stars were really playing sloogey tonight and so they lost, which is bad bull.

Still, had you told me before the playoffs that the Stars would have pushed the Wings to 4-2 in the Western Conference Finals, I would have said that was good bull.

Yet, coming back home with the momentum and giving such a sloogey performance in the first 2 periods ... bad bull of the highest order.

Spurs vs. the Mighty Lakers ...

It's only fitting and right to have to play the champs if you want a chance at the title. Of course, it's nice (a) having home court advantage and (b) having had a little rest going into Wednesday's game.

Sean said "PS - Sorry about your sloogey Stars. I guess they really slooged it this time."

I think Sean is down with the "slooge."
Good job using it in a sentence there, Sean.

I am not at all excited about having to play the Lakers for they do play a mightily good game against us.

jSean also said "I am undecided as to whether I like it, seeing as it is such a vague term. If I decide to adopt such a term (which I think is highly unlikely) and take it back to Canada with me (even more unlikely)"

never underestimate the contagiousness of the "slooge" otherwise you just might be increasing your own personal "waffle factor."

bad bull.

GO SPURS GO! (Amen!) Should be an interesting series with the Lakers.

Sorry 'bout the Stars. I was hoping they would knot that series up and then take Game 7. Oh well!

P.S. (Will you e-mail the pic again?)
