What's That Awful Smell? Oh! It's Remnants Of Newark!


Yes, the stink follows them around wherever they go.

If you think of the Ducks as being in the cellar, then the New Jersey Devils are UNDER the cellar.

Tonight I will be glued to the telly with plenty of drinkage and snacky-snacks arrayed before me.  When I was contemplating what to dine upon, I thought it would be mildly entertaining to discover what Jersey denizens shovel into their broken-toothed maws, so I Googled: “what do people in newark eat?”  Here’s the third entry that popped up:

New York City, Newark and American Airlines Can Eat My S**t

Nice, yeah?

Then I remembered that there’s a pretty big  Portuguese presence, so I checked Wikipedia and discovered this nauseating abomination of a dish.

Hmmm, maybe I’ll just go with a grinder from the nearest Italian deli…

As it stands, the swamp goombahs have played 10 games; have only two wins and a measly five points.  As the Sharks shredded the Devils on Wednesday, I’m hoping for a good, old fashioned home town beat down tonight. 

Sports book sites are predicting anything from a 3-0 to 6-2 final score in favour of the quack attack and none are even getting close to saying the Devils have a chance in H-E-double-hockey-sticks of winning.

The Ducks have regrouped nicely and the truly odd line of Selanne-Ryan-Koivu obviously clicked during the recent win over the Stars.

Of course, overconfidence has killed us before, so the boys have to stay consistent and really protect the net.

With Matt Beleskey out with a concussion, Aaron Voros will most likely be on the line with Getzlaf and Perry tonight.  Cam Fowler might be back in the lineup, but they’ve been predicting that for over a week, so I’m not holding my breath.  Dan Sexton just had his nose stapled back to his face yesterday and will be out a couple of weeks.

In a story featured on Bleacher Report about the top 15 fighters, good ol’ Georgie was selected #1 and compared to Stu “The Grim Reaper” Grimson. 

A snippet of Ducks history: October 23, 2005 – Rob and Scott Niedermayer combine on a goal for the first time in their NHL careers.  Rob scores on a power play to give the Ducks a 5-3 win over the visiting Phoenix Coyotes.  Thus eliciting the coolest call ever: “Niedermayer passes to Niedermayer, back to Niedermayer…and Niedermayer SCOOOOOORES!!!”

    What’s That Awful Smell? Oh! It’s Remnants Of the author of this dribble!
    Have you even been to New Jersey, you ignorant fool? Or are you perhaps one of those west coast people who know nothing about our great State, and make movies and TV shows “set” in NJ and show things like palm trees? There have been a few awful shows that fit that category. The producers come here, shoot a few opening scenes, and then proceed to offend us with their inaccuracies. And then there is that trash so-called reality show with the Snookies et al. They are NOT from NJ either. They are undesirable “Bennies”. Even one of my favourite shows, Monk, had to jump into the “let’s trash NJ ignorantly” episode. Dufus Lt. Randy Disher will never make it in NJ as a regular patrolman, but the show had him move to Summit NJ and become the chief of police.
    As for the food, there are many great restaurants in NJ. It’s funny how you found just what you wanted for your neurotic rabid review. I googled “Portuguese food in Newark” and several good restaurants with no “disgusting” items on the menu popped up immediately.
    And finally, let’s talk Stanley cups. How many did Anaheim win? Ah yes, one. The Devils won THREE!
    So please, get off the gutter and be civil; and mostly be truthful. The Devils are not the only team who lost their bearings once in a while.
    Oh, by the way, do you need a dictionary?

    Wow, my boss was right, it is fun to piss off the readers!

    Yes, I have been to New Jersey several times – Hoboken, Newark, Elizabeth, etc. I have Portugeuse friends in Hoboken and I had probably the best pastrami sandwich ever in a place called Tony’s in Elizabeth. Everyone was very kind and generous and helpful. The Pru is a lovely new facility for your Devils.

    What you failed to realize is that this is a DUCKS site and part of my job is to INCITE – get it?

    Sorry, dear, I hate to say it, but you fell for it!
