Captain January

Hooray! Jaro Spacek is the captain for January. I loooove Spacho. So sweetly growly! So brutish! So unintentionally hilarious! So not Soupy!

Jah. My turn for C.

Not only was Spacho tapped for the C just in time for the Ice Bowl, but he has a new son, born yesterday. It’s been a good week for Jaro. I think Spacek’s return to prominence on the ice is a really nice story. By the end of the playoffs last spring, he was hardly allowed on the ice at all, and now, he’s the captain of the team. His will be a nice leadership perspective for a young and inconsistent team, and I’m happy for him.

I’m totally poomerdoodling over Pommerdoodle’s A, too. Good boy, Pommers. I hope that Goose gets a letter sooner or later, so that I can honk in celebration (and also because he deserves it). HOOONK!

    I am so freakin’ happy that Gazpacho got a C. The only thing that makes me happier right now is that he’s playing like he actually wanted it!

    I know this has been said a thousand times at this point, but I just have to say it again: that is a truly classic sweater, and I really hope your boys get to go back to wearing it every night soon. May the Buffaslug die an ignominious death in ’08-’09…

    I’ve heard that Jaro is a yeller in the locker room. Maybe that’s what the young guys need. Can’t you just see Van cowering in the corner after Spacho yells at him? “I’ll shoot, I promise! Ow! Stop hitting me with your sock!”

    I’m also so proud of our little Pommerdoodle. He’s a good boy.
