Picture yourself near a stream. Birds are softly chirping in the crisp, cool mountain air. Nothing can bother you here. No one knows this secret place. You are in total seclusion from that place called “the world.” The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity. The water is clear. You can easily make out the face of Gary Bettman, whose head you’re holding under the water.

  1. That was a piece of poetry Dennis. Plain and simple. I’m stealing that.

    Ah, who needs hockey anyways? We really don’t like it and we’re just lying to ourselves. I can have so much more fun painting a wall and watching it dry.

  2. I thought that quiet serenity was going to kill me until I realized it was Bettman that was dying, not me.

    Gentle waterfalls need beautiful women to frolic under them. I find a blaring assortment of Stones and Zeppelin to be very serene.

  3. I’m here, but I don’t think Dennis liked what I wrote. Or maybe he was jealous of my imagination and wished HE wrote what I wrote. No sweat off my brow, it’s his blog.

  4. Geez Dude, I’m pretty sure I’m not jealous of your imagination. I posted your comment originally and then took it off after an hour or so after thinking long and hard about it. I just didn’t want to open a can of worms. You know, the head coming off and blood spurting everywhere and all that. I didn’t want anyone offended by it and I deleted it because yes, it’s my blog.
    Finally, now that people know where I stand, here’s your comment. “And suddenly….verrrrry suddenly….the head is pulled off the body and blood gushes everywhere and you swim away into the sunset.”

  5. Sorry Dennis, I didn’t mean to cause a controversy, I was just surprised that my Reader feed had an extra comment present.

    Dude, Dennis most definitely shouldn’t be jealous of your writing or anyone’s for that matter. I dare you to find a better written blog anywhere on the Internet. I’m amazed he hasn’t won a Pulitzer. I’m not offended by violent comments which I assumed were made in jest, but I do object to comments made in poor taste or spite.

  6. Quite to the contrary, Christopher, I think this is one of the most entertaining hockey blogs as well. I’m not sure I enjoy the drama you’re creating.
