Morning, folks!

I’ll try to keep it brief this morning, mostly because a) it’s real Christmas today, and b) I’ve been on hold with a doctor since about 2AM when it became clear that this erection simply wasn’t going anywhere. To say I’m nervous would be an understatement. But, to say it was worth it would be, too.

What a game last night.

That third period was the stuff crack cocaine is made of. You could charge cover to that. Watching Jesse Puljujarvi flatten Tomas Tatar only for Connor McDavid to split the Habs D and outwait Jake Allen for the wonder finish is about as erogenous as Oilers hockey has ever been in the last ten-plus years. Enjoy it and pray to everyone you know that they do it again tomorrow.

LFG. Also:

Really makes you think.
