Give Blood, Play Hockey

From the New York Times: “Swiss engineers drilling the world’s longest tunnel broke through the last section of rock on Friday, crowning over a decade of work.”

The bullet train is on standby 24/7 in the bowels of the Honda Center with a crew of 20 and a fueling station to be installed in the next few days.

Thus enabling Darth Hiller to return home much more expeditiously than chartering Virgin Galactic.

Yeah, yeah, now I’m just amusing myself.  So shoot me!

I’m just getting into Hulu.com and they have lots of full and condensed games to watch for free if you’re bored at work during lunch or whenever.  Anytime it’s Ducks vs. Red Wings, it’s go time!

Anyway, it’s almost time to Thrash the Thrashers in our only game with them this season and we all are hoping that Goalie Ondrej Pavelec will be okay after his fainting spell – although the official diagnosis read “neurocardiogenic syncope episode” which sounds like something you’d contract after visiting Hogwarts.

Toni Lydman is back in form and I’m sure is looking to make his mark on the ice after missing so much time and Mr. 207 could very well tie Dino Ciccarelli at 208 or – dare we dream? – surpass?

In other news, the Ducks are supporting the “Give Blood, Play Hockey” charity event October 15th-17th.  Tomorrow is the kick off at the 946 inline rink.  Details can be found here.

Okay, it sounds a little cheesy, but it’s all for a good cause.  Plus, all the money from Deviant Hockey stickers will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County, one of the Ducks main charities!
