Hockey Pool Update

Is visible below.  Gerty-Z had her best week to date and was able to propel herself out of last place (just barely).  Lavaland is steady as she goes. Looks like Bob is now getting Alyssa's title from last year as that Damn Bob.  He had the second highest points total and is keeping a small lead on Thomas.  Sorry Thomas, but getting the highest point total didn't help you :).  Chall and myself are doing way better than last year, bunching in the middle of the pack with Cath and Ricardipus, though Cath is doing her level best to put some distance between us.  Lets see how this week's race goes :)

haha, you think we are doing better than last year? Are we really? All I see is that I am in the bottom half... DARN!

I need to mojo. Hm, I wonder if I should start wearing my hockey shirts to work next week and see if that makes the hockey gods happy :)

Congrats Thomas!!

Thanks for the update! Thinking I need to kick some Yankee and British/Finnish/German ass this week :)

Bob O'H said...

Ha! Det glider i!

(I'll let chall explain that to you, and why the Finns are so keen on that phrase)

BTW, when am I meant to look after this? Next week's bad for me - I'm travelling to Aberdeen to be threatened with the "local delicacies".

w00t! my new strategery is working!

Ricardipus said...

I think I'm doing splendidly, given that I'm totally ignoring the game schedules, injury status and just about everything else related to my picks. ;)

Bob, I can do next week's update

I had the best potatoes of all time in Stonehaven, just south of Aberdeen. This was six or seven years ago and I'm still talking about them. They were stunning - so full of flavour!

I asked the waitress what kind of potatoes they were, and she looked at me like I was an eejit and said "they're potato potatoes".

Bob. Not to rain on your parade... but "Den glider in" . Almost though. I mean, I got it ;)

...and yeah... "we" don't like that.

[it's one of those comments when the Finns shoot at the Swedish goal. one of those times S lost... means 'it glides in', meaning "puck into goal". ]
