Has Edmonton given up? 
First they lost Pronger and Spacek. Now they're letting Peca go?

Is that just how the Oilers organization works? They only build decent players so they can sell them off rather than trying to build on their success?

Suddenly it sucks to be an Oilers fan. I never thought I'd be saying that this year!

Peca once regularly scored 20 goals a season as one of the NHL's best two-way players, but last season he had the worst production of his career scoring just nine goals and adding 14 assists in 71 games.


Ah yes... welcome to the Leafs. Where great players come to die.

Hopefully it works out well for the Leafs so us fans can convince ourselves we've got a shot at the cup again. Not making the playoffs really puts a damper on that pipedream!

And make no mistake... I'm a diehard Leafs fan. Woot!! Go Leafs Go!!

So much for the krauts. 
The Germans have been eliminated from the World Cup and, along with them, all likely chances at me winning the second round of the lunch pool I'm in.

Bloody Italians. Turns out they can play well when they're not taking bribes and fixing matches. Good on them. They deserved the win.

To add insult to injury, if Italy wins the final, they'll nudge Germany out of 2nd place for most World Cup wins, for which they are currently tied with the Azzurri.

I guess that's what they get for not scoring any freakin' goals!

Can't win all of them on penalties, you lazy bastards!

Looks like I'll have to be happy with just one free lunch.

Thank-you, Switzerland. 
I tied for the win in the first round of my lunch-crowd World Cup pool. Free lunch for me! Woot!

And on this topic... is it just me or are footballers the biggest bunch of crying babies on the planet? People are telling me that they roll around and cry with the hopes of getting favour from the officials. So basically... they're either pansies or they're cheaters. How flattering.

I'd love to see those guys put some skates on and play a few minutes of proper hockey and see what's left of them when it's over!
