From that article I particularly enjoyed this:"'I’ll move on. I’m certainly not going to think about it again.'Or will he?'It won’t be forgotten,' said Ryan. 'We’ll talk about it later.'"p.s. Welly had 3 pts (1G, 2A) tonight, was the game's first star, and nhl.com's second star of the night. I am lacking in the twitter area, so thought I'd inform you here, lest you complain once again that no one tells you anything.
Perhaps the 'Nucks will play the Stars:If they should win their final four,And then the Hawks no more than two.Do palm trees grow in Labrador?The schedule says it could occur:The Hawks will lose to Montreal,And beat the Wings not more than once.Are reindeer found in Senegal?The Stars play only alsorans:They've yet to beat the Avalanche,A team they will be meeting twice.Does Dallas really have a chance?As of today damn right they do:Is there a place called Timbuktu?Whisky Jack
All The WayThe teams that Vancouver might meetDecidedly doesn't matter.There's not a team the 'Nucks won't beatDespite the cynical chatter.So why the guarded optimism,The fatuous fear the team might choke? For others leave the skepticism; And much bandwagon rage provoke.Each Canuck has something to prove,From Luongo to Oreskovich.Each player's playing in a groove,For each has found his hockey niche.And have we not the twins SedinWith Alex Burrows in between!Chicken Chick
I dunno about rhyming Oreskovich and niche. It's an acceptable pronunciation, but an alternate pronunciation nonetheless. Madwag? Skeeter? What's your verdict on this one?
I have no qualms with rhyming Oreskovich and niche. Works just fine for me and it scans nicely too.
Works for me. i prefer the former production with the rhetorical questions myself, but the rhyme's no crime. The use of a concluding couplet we've read before ( "Poetic Licence" ) is a trifle disappointing, although rhyming "Sedin" with "between" is definitely creatively clever. Perhaps the "chick" could have used, "They'll win the cup without a hitch," but "hockey niche" has its appeal, being somewhat original and not too much of a stretch. Restrained plaudits are warranted.madwag
