Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers - 7pm - Tue 11 Dec '07

As you may have gathered from our flyer, Dave was out of town this last weekend with our Chairman of Pacific Division Hockey Mocking, Richie Rock visiting our Mountain Time Zone legal counsel Smokin' Al Feldman, who's celebrating his 40th birthday. Without Dave's leadership the graphics department quickly digressed to a spirited and noisy session of "Name That Typeface" that was only broken up when Rev. Timmy and Saké Mike went in with shotguns full of rock salt and bacon rinds. We didn't want to give Tim and Mike shotguns, but they were so wound up after Brendan Shanahan's game winning goal Sunday night we couldn't keep them out of the armory. Tim faked a seizure and Mike set off the alarm in the Hockey Night in Chinatown Poisonous Anemone Breeding Facility. After that it was short work for them to overpower the remaining guards and work the lock (we gotta change that combination: Gordie left, Mario right, Bobby left.)
The entire graphics department and several security guards and interns were treated and released later Sunday night or Monday morning. By then, however the boys had locked up every graphics workstation with elaborate spread sheet projections of how many goals and points Mario Lemieux would have scored if he'd remained healthy his entire career and pop-up windows from "free" porn thumbnail sites (do you know how much pornography it takes to lock up a Cray XT5? Well we do, now.) So to avoid yet another workplace related lawsuit we sent the graphics department home and gave them all gift certificates for Tim Hortons and River City Sports.

After the smoke cleared and the poisonous anemone were back in their tank (real seizure from Timmy this time) we had little time or, truth be told, inclination to get the flyer together. We apologize to anyone whose week was ruined by our crappy flyer. And we feel sorry for you.

So close all your pop-up windows and bring all your esoteric hypothetical hockey print-outs on down to:
Night in Chinatown

Tuesday - October 30, '07

from 7:00pm 'till we run outta hockey games to yell at.

This week:

The Pittsburgh Penguins at The Philadelphia Flyers

Last Thursday we had a Hockey Night in Chinatown Corporate Fieldtrip to see The Atomic Bitchwax at Ace of Clubs and a delightful time was had by all. If you need your Rock and Roll gland stimulated they are definitely worth your while. Go see them while you can, one of Rev. Timmy's super-powers is making bands he likes disappear from the planet far too soon. It's not intentional, it just happens. Sort of like the Stay-puft Marshmellow Man from Ghostbusters.

Dave will be back next week and everything will be back to normal.
For us.
(Mike just ran through the Control Room with a spear gun. Gotta go...)

Happy Birthday Smokin' Al!

Hurry Home Dave!

But who could blame you for staying away?

Al, Dave, Scotty, we love you.
