Catching up...

-- Montreal 2 - 1 NY Rangers was a fun. fun little hockey game. It was excellent to see the Canadiens get the points after two shitty periods, and it was also nice to see Jose Theodore in such fine form. But, the one thing even better was that it was the rarest beast in hockey this year: a free-wheeling, up-and-down, offensive contest. The coaches both probably had coronaries, but goddamn, it was fun to watch. It's too bad most people don't have dishes, cause I actually saw a 6-5 game happen between Boston and Washington...I don't want to see those types of games every time out, but they're great once in a while...especially this season. When you look at a full out-of-town scoreboard, and see only 0, 1, or 2, that is kinda lame, and indicative of something that needs fixing.

-- Olympique Lyonnais 3 - 2 Glasgow Celtic: One piece of shambolic defending + one schoolboy howler from our shit goalkeeper + one bullshit penalty in the 86th minute of a tie game = a missed-out Champions League knockout phase place. Fuck.

-- Arsenal 2 - 0 Lokomotiv Moscow: Welcome to the new "Arsenal in Europe" - composed, professional, solid in the back, hardworking in the midfield, clinical in their finishing. I think we have a real chance to do some damage in this competition this time around. As long as we stay healthy and focused, why not us this year?
