Continuing to be completely OT

A bad night for the Devils last night: the Lightning beat us 3-2. Sob! Sniffle! Now we have to take back the series on the road and there is something SO wrong with playing ice hockey in Florida!

(Cindi, to make you feel better, I worked on my MIL's sweater during the commercials. :-)

One of the heroes of the game was Jamie Langenbrunner (on the right in the photo above). Jamie scored the second Devils goal which at the time put them ahead 2-1. He's a 10-year NHL veteran who's found a whole new level since he joined up with Zach Parise (the young guy who scored yet another playoff goal last night) and Travis Zajac who's a rookie this year (see photo below).

Another thing I like about hockey players is they love nicknames. So the line of Langenbrunner, Parise and Zajac is known as "Z. Z. Pop" for Zach, Zajac and the old guy "Pop", and a very effective line it is. The Devils' first line is known as the "EGG Line" for Elias, Gionta and Gomez (who are referred to as "Patty", "Gio", and "Gomer" by their teammates) .

We've got lovers of football, indoor lacrosse (!), hockey, and baseball on this blog. Now tell us who your favorite player is and why he or she is so exciting.

Is it tacky to comment on my own blog before anyone else does?

At any rate, I may not be prompt about further comments because I have five inches of water in my basement. We got hit by the Nor'easter and it isn't pretty. Our basement is finished and while we don't have carpeting, we do have a rug, couch and chaise longue and they're pretty soggy.

My husband and I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. bailing but the water came in faster than we could get it out so we finally gave up and went to bed.

Right now some nice men are pumping out the water so we can get started on clean up.

Biggest problem? No hot water for a shower since the hot water heater's slightly submerged. Ugh.

Anyone else with wet basements?

Oh no, Nancy! Hope you dry out.

Thanks, Cindi! We got the worst of it pumped out but unfortunately, it's still raining off and on and so water is still coming in.

I did get to shower though so I feel human again.

Eeek! This does not sound like fun.
