I hate when the Ducks and the Avs play at the same time...I'll be watching a little bit of both of those games. What are you watching tonight? Q it up here!

Minnesota Wild are holding their own against that other west coast team who wear blue!!!!

So a few minutes after the Ducks game ended, Trev turned the changed the channel to the Avs game, and the Stars tied it up. He promptly changed it again. Now we're watching some DVR'd shows.

The Avs? Did I miss something Jess?

I turned on the Caps game halfway through the second, and they promptly gave up a goal. Then Tom Wilson got a 5 minute major and a misconduct penalty, in what will be the latest controversial hit. Naturally, the Caps gave up another goal during the 5 minute power play. *click*

Not really - it's a Roy thing and a history thing...long ass story.

Both Trever and I grew up in an area where, if you liked hockey you liked the Avs because that's the only team who was broadcast in either area with any regularity. So, both of our first loves was the Avs (oddly enough, it was the only real sports thing we had in common - he wasn't as crazy about football then as he is now, and he wasn't a Seahawks fan at first.)

ANYWAY...we were both Avs fans at the time, though unfortunately didn't get to watch them a whole lot. What we did get to watch was junior hockey, as I had season tickets to the Spokane Chiefs games and didn't miss a game. I bought an extra when he and I got together, and he got all Chiefs crazy right along with me (you know I don't do anything half-way.) Anyway, in 2002 Mike Babcock, who was a coach for the Chiefs when I was writing for them/going to games and had a rapport, got hired as HC for Anaheim. Around this time, 3 players who were also once with the Chiefs played for the Ducks. So basically it was like a Senior Spokane Chiefs team, so as much as I hated the Mighty Ducks when they came into the league, I was drawn to them for that reason and my loyalty has just kinda remained. 

Then Joe Sakic became VP of hockey operations (or some damn thing) and Patrick Roy became HC for the Avs. This is a loyalty dilemma. Imagine when Seattle gets a NHL team.

I told Trever he's not allowed to watch the Avs tonight. They lose almost every time he watches them, and they're playing Dallas...after further thought I decided we're not chancing that.

Heck no!! I wouldn't let him watch either! Calgary got shut out, but only 2-0, I'm glad I wasn't picking in a thread tonight, cuz so far, I only have one right :(
