Just like the hockey season itself, it's taken us here at Hockey Night in Chinatown a couple weeks to get our skates under us (Scott Gomez, we're looking at you,) and for that we'd like to apologize.
But we're not going to.
And if that gets your panties in a bunch, we must warn you that this last weekend Saké Mike hosted a seminar on climbing over the glass with one's skates on. So we're ready to go if you folks start hucking batteries or heat up pennies with a lighter and toss'em on the ice (the preferred method is to hold the penny with a pair of tweezers and giggle maniacally the whole time.)
So unbunch whatever's bunched up on ya, pick through your change jar and scoot on down to...
Hockey Night in Chinatown
105 Eldridge St.
(btw: Broome Street and Grand Street)
Tuesday - October 23, '07
from 7:00pm to 12 midnight.
The New York Rangers at The Pittsburgh Penguins
On a related note, our good buddies Richard Bacchus and The Luckiest Girls have just released a new record Jet Black and Beautiful onto the interweb. We've been playing it continuously in the Hockey Night in Chinatown Corporate Bunker and I gotta say, everyone's got a a bounce in his step, nobody steals from the coffee fund anymore and, curiously, everyone's teeth are brighter, whiter and more vibrant. (Savage beatings have risen slightly, but that seems like more than a fair tradeoff.)
It's quite the collection of ditties detailing the face washes and slew foots that life perpetrates perpetually upon us all.
Oh, and it just happens to rock mightily.
So pony up and give some support to a cat who routinely goes to the corner for rock and roll and digs out the puck for our side.
Here's him and the "girls" hard at work at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh:
Despite the fact that he's based in Raleigh, we stand by our well established credo:
Die, Confederate Hockey Scum!
Keep Hockey Cold!
Ricky, Jimmy, Larry, Billy, Scotty, we love you.
