Hey FrontBurner Nation, it’s me here at the AAC! I went to a hockey game and a baseball game broke out! Western Conference wins 12-9. Goalie Martin “The Sieve” Brodeur gave up as many goals in one period (six) as he does in a week. Brutal stuff. Anywhoo, anyone who is anyone is/was here tonight. Brodeur’s buddy and WWE goon, Edge, who looks like that guy in the caveman commercials, was seated center ice. I spied former Rangers Chris Young and Kevin Mench (in Flyers swag), current Rangers C.J. Wilson and Kameron Loe, Moose and Troy, and the Walker Texas Ranger Dude. Megan Henderson (Ch. 4) and Emily Jones (Foxs Sport Net) were roaming around together. The opera chick who sang national anthems tried to walk across the ice and wiped out. (I’m sure she’s under heavy sedation and in seclusion somewhere. It was not pretty.) The hockey may have been bad, but the “entertainment” between periods was worse. I mean embarrassing. First intermission, a stage came down from the rafters with some crappy heavy metal band called Red Jumpsuit Apparatus making bad noise. (Adam, please don’t tell me you like these guys. I might have to bite you.) Second break, some nimrod won a Dodge Nitro by playing a video game. However, I did learn from my long-time buddy Colin Campbell that Tom Hicks hosted a luncheon in his home for all the hockey bigwigs who were in town. All the wives were so impressed as most of them don’t have paintings by Matisse on their walls. (Food was catered by George.) Well, I’ve gotta go. Gordie is waiting for me at the bar. Lindy’s press conference is over. Got lots of goals to go over. Brutal, eh? Just brutal.
