Quote of the day

So it has been a while since I have had a room mate and there are some things that I miss about having one around. There are always the little things that happen now and then that make you angry or make you smile. Last night I had one of those moments when you can't help but smile....

It was about 2:30 in the morning and I had 2 individuals enter my home in what appeared to be a drunken stupor. I awoke to the front door opening and the dogs jumping from the bed to greet my guests. There was a lot of "whispering" going on between the two individuals. I didn't want to cause any commotion so I stayed in bed where I was comfortably resting and just listened. That was when I heard:

"I don't care if JD sees me come out of your room in the morning. I just really want to be here with you tonight."

I can't confirm the source of this statement although I have a pretty good idea who it is. There was some other talk....mostly in "whispered" tones ( and by "whispered" we all know how quiet that can be when drunk).......It was worth missing some sleep to hear the conversations without leaving the comforts of my bed. Hey, I wasn't trying to listen....They woke me up and my house is TINY!

Here's to having a room mate again!

Board of Directors

I believe it is in the best interest of the IFLH Board of Directors to convene once more and discuss the possibility of a playing some pond hockey. It has been brought to my attention this week (a couple of times) by Canada Rhett that the pond may be in playable condition this weekend. I am proposing that the board meet this week on Friday evening following the 6:25 Mary Janes- Bruins game to discuss plans about hosting the IFLH Pond Hockey Classic. Shall we say approx. 7:45 PM at the Alehouse???????

Also on the agenda is the topic of teams rosters, names and logos.

Max's Team?


Childer's Team?

New Poll!

Max, as a "fuckin' botanist", I'm sure you will have a strong opinion about this one.
Has anyone looked at the pond lately?

Chiefs Game Saturday

The Chiefs are at home on Saturday night against Tri-Cities. It's buck night. That means $1 hot dogs, popcorn and Coca-Cola products all night long. Available tickets are between $8 and $16. We can get them together online at TicketsWest. Rose and I are going and have a Subaru that will carry 5 total peeps (4 if we need to bring Thurmonds goalie gear). Any takers?

Oh yeah......

I guess a congrats goes out to Canada Rhett for popping the question........he now has one of those fancy words for "girlfriend with a rock"........what is that called again.....a DEATH SENTENCE? Guess the picture in front of the fireplace worked.

If CHILDERS can do it - Why can't Max????


Seriously folks.......Childers can grow a stache but kliMAXx can't?

Spokane Chiefs

The Spokane Chiefs are set to take on the Tri-City Americans next Saturday, Jan. 24th @ 7:00 PM. Which begs the question: Who is man enough to drive up to Spokane for the game?

-MF


P.S. I think if we present Mr. Thurmond's Palouse "C" League Stats to WHL commissoner they might be flexible with the age rule thingy. Just a thought.

W T F??????

Seriously who takes these pictures?









This is worse than Max's backhand.

Update


Here is a picture of the current state of the rink.........water around the edges and ice in the middle. We will just have to see what Mother Nature brings this week. It has been cold enough that the middle is staying pretty frozen but with all of the edges opened up we will need wet suits under our hockey gear to get out to play. The good news is that if it stays cold enough we will have a much bigger rink to play on instead of the one that we shoveled out last week.

Hope for the best.

Max and the Stache........

Something to AIM for:




I think it could be this good if Max tried hard enough.......sure would beat his backhand. I think Max would gain SO MUCH respect at the rink if he would just grow it out. Just think of all of the respect that everyone has for the red beard. The doctors come running down the hall at Quick Care when they think ol' red beard is there injured. It is all about the facial hair. Think about Canada Rhett and that little patch of fuzz he has on his chin.......more respect than those with no facial hair. Just goes to show.......
TIME TO GROW THE STACHE!



New Poll! And last week's results.

Last week's poll confirmed that Max and JD are equally deficient in their hockey skills.

All For NOT?

So with the snow that fell last night......and a snow day for what appeared to be the ENTIRE city of Moscow, a few of us decided that it was in the best interest of the IFLH Pond Hockey Classic to go out to the pond and shovel the snow yet one more time. After spending countless hours the past 2 days the 4 of us (Canada Rhett, George the Gringo, Half Baked T-Jay, and the Short Fat Kid) made the trek out to Deary and down to the pond again today. We thought we might be in good shape with a good freeze last night but apparently it snowed slush instead of the fluffy white shit. There was another good 4-8 inches of standing water under that fluffy stuff. After some debate it was decided that it was in OUR best interest to clear out the snow and leave all of the slush to mother nature......let's see what that bitch brings this week. Hopefully with with the warmer weather this week, we will get a nice melt and settle all of the slush into a swimming pool that may or may not freeze by the weekend.



Damn this SUCKS!

On another note:

I am still not sure that Max LOVES hockey. I am sure that he may admire it or even really LIKE it but I haven't seen the commitment that shows how much he LOVES hockey. Rhett, David, Childers, and I all made it to hockey tonight after getting the F-150 stuck yet AGAIN- this time at Childer's place. Hey doesn't that P.O.S. have 4WD? Max had some lame excuse like his truck was stuck too..... He also isn't seen in ANY of the photos since he hasn't been out to shovel yet.......Max, how much do you really LOVE hockey?

This is why I love hockey. It's also how i'm going to start playing in the C-league.

Watch the whole thing. It's well worth it.

Just so Max knows how much fun he missed to go watch plants grow

video

Seriously, doesn't this look like more fun than botany? It was. We swear.

We had beer. And hotdogs.

Ice Prep

The preparations are officially "well underway". After 30+ man-hours of shoveling, the rink is almost a rink. And, to the best of everyone's knowledge, Max did not have booze with his breakfast this morning.










The Ice Crew.. (L to R, Zack, George, David, JD, Andy, Matt, Canadian Rhett. Not pictured: Max "I have work to do" Feldman). PBR boxes make excellent tripods.

How many hockey players does it take to dig out an F-150?

Five. The answer is five hockey players. Plus some guy with a Suburban. Thanks, Rhett.

Tournament training regimen

Because I'm so fucking fat and soft after my vacation I will definately be skating tomorrow @ 9 AM. While I am there I will personally give everyone present a tutorial on hard, back-handed love then retire to a breakfast joint of Andy Norton's choice to eat a healthy breakfast of egg whites, whole wheat toast, and delicious fruit slices (probably pinapple). I will also drink a delicious cup of coffee and a nutritious tall glass of orange juice with extra pulp and NO BOOZE.


Well... no promises on the booze.
