Keith Ballard Is Still Afraid Of Screwing Things Up

There was pretty much none stop talk about Ballard's season last year and doing better this year. How his confidence was shattered and all that blah, blah we've all heard it and read it 10 million times by now. Sad thing is, poor Keith is still afraid of screwing up............even at pumpkin carving.

On an unrelated to confidence or lack there of note, it is great to see so many players out carving pumpkins with the kids at Canuck Place. If I remember correctly last year there was only 2 or 3 players there.

Last Week in Ballywood

Have to say I'm quite disappointed that Keith Ballard is no longer on pace for 82 goals, I mean really I was expecting him to be superman this season. He made up for it though. How?.....Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike Taylor Hall? (for no particular reason, just because)

BOOM. I enjoyed that way more then I probably should.

Then there is Darcy Hordichuk, I used to like him a lot as a canuck. Then he had to start all this chirping and really piss me off

Thank you Ballard. You didn't even have to try there.

I love when he goes low

Too low apparently. I love a good Ballard hipcheck with play by play from John Shorthouse.

I need a cold shower.

Ballard Is My Homeboy

So I was sitting here thinking, man I hope Keith Ballard says something funny or SOMETHING so I can blog about it tomorrow. Then I go upstairs to put my daughter to bed and come back downstairs, lay down on the couch and HE SCORES. I jumped up so fast and screamed "WHAT?!?!" that I'm pretty sure I wont be able to move my neck in the morning.


Then twitter goes down. Clearly Ballard's amazing play broke twitter. I am officially crazy excited that hockey is back and for Ballard being on pace for 82 goals.

All the Ballard excitement aside, I am extremely disappointed that Matt Cooke scored not only 1 but 2 damn goals. I guess when you aren't thinking about trying to knock someone's head off it's a lot easier to score.

Hockey is Back!!

A Couple of weeks ago it came out that Ryan Kesler would be posing nude in a magazine coming out. My first thought wasn't how hot it was going to be, but what Kevin Bieksa's reaction would be, I even mentioned it to Ian Walker.

So here is the picture:

Now, I am female and as I've mentioned before I have no problem admitting I think a player is good looking. HOWEVER, that picture is not attractive at all in my opinion. Kesler can be a good looking dude, but that picture just has way too much muscle. I gave him the benefit of the doubt but some of the lines that came out of Kevin Bieksa's lovely little mouth yesterday about it were great.

(thanks PITB, couldn't find it on youtube to put up  before)

And onto some real matters in no particular order. Just go read them, you wont be sorry.

    • I have always liked the guy, and knew to watch for him because of a friend who grew up where he did .What a story though, go read it. NOW!  
    • Ha...haha...ha. I'll believe the little prick when I see it for at least a season.
    • This doesn't need any explanation. 

I am definitely excited for hockey to be back, a distraction from some stuff going on in my life right now. Hopefully I can get back into a regular blogging schedule as I failed horribly the past 2 months.
