I got my first real six string, bought it at the five and dime, played it till my fingers bled...was the Summer of '69.

Devils lost to the Flyers tonight, which gets me nice and pissed. They looked awful for most of the game, but looked alright in the 3rd. They could have jumped to the 5th spot, but what a kick in the ass.

Everyone is in such a fuss over Todd Bertuzzi. For those who don't know, he sucker punched Steve Moore from Colorado last night. He nailed him from behind and then fell on him, riding him to the ice, which broke his neck in 3 places and cut his face pretty bad and gave him a concussion. All in retribution for Moore hitting Naslund a few weeks ago and giving him a concussion. Now, it was uncalled for and he should be suspended. But people calling for lifetime ban and stuff like that are nuts. Its really no worse than what Marty McSorely did a few years back. So give him 20 games or the rest of the year and thats it.

Our petty version of hockey starts 2 sundays from now, and i'm excited. We have a decent team and we've been playing together for a few years now, so it should be fun.

Quitting cigarettes hasn't worked out like i'd want it to...its tough when you go out and everyone around you is smoking. Oh well...we'll check back in a few days.

I was trying to think of a Classic Collegeboy Momentâ„¢ and here's what i came up with:

December 31st, 2002. New Years Bash at the Constein Compound. Dan Constein vs. Kyle Constein. Special Referee: Yours truly. This night saw a wild party at the compound. Massive amounts of beer was consumed(common theme amongst College moments). Earlier in the evening Ravi was beaten like a red headed step child by Kyle. Soon the beer got to Kyle and Dan, who was home for the holidays from Lousyana. The 2 combatants squared off in the epic bout that is remembered to this day. Weapons were used. My copy of Royal Rumble met it's fate when College broke it over Dan's head. Tin Buckets were smashed. College tried to gain the advantage with a bottle of antifreeze. It didnt work out and College's x-mas gift from Matt, a David Justice Cleveland Indians jersey was stained forever red. The match came to an abrupt end when College tried to grab my legs and flip me over. Instead of calling for an immediate disqualification, i handed College a modified pedigree and College's head hit the hard wood floor with an audible thud. College with a mix of beer and hardwood floor, was out cold. But it was great while it lasted and stands as one of the most fun nights in my life.

With Bertuzzi in such a big fuss, im reminded of a quote from Dino Ciccarelli in 1996. He was pissed over Claude Lemiuex hitting Kris Draper from behind, driving his face into the boards, causing deep facial lacerations, a broken nose and a broken jaw:

"They beat us, they're the better team. I can't believe i shook this guy's friggin hand after the game. That pisses me right off."
