Canes/Devils - Game Three: Random Musings and Observations

- First off, an apology for this being delayed...Comcast, bless their Philly Flyboy supporting* hearts, decided to pull the plug on their Internet connection around 6:00 yesterday evening. And they didn't decide they were just kidding** until sometime around 9:00 or 10:00 this morning. So yes, that made last night quite fun...especially when I *really* wanted to write about Game Three after it had happened.

- Anyway, 50% power play. Day-umn. I knew the Canes were playing great...but wow. See? I'm not totally being off the mark in saying that these Canes are better than the best Canes the regular season had to offer.

- OLN, give it up. We know you love the Devils so frickin' much that you just cannot admit that they and their precious Marty Brodeur are in deep doo-doo. Again, just give it up, PLEASE.

- If I see one more Flomax ad (I forgot where I heard/read the comment about "What do a bunch of old men in a convertible have to do with a Viagra knockoff?"...but to whoever said it, RIGHT ON.), Mark Messier reference, or even Kiefer Sutherland*** "My Stanley Cup" ad, I'll pull out my hair.

* - For those of you who don't know or have forgotten, Comcast, the people behind OLN, and their C.E.O. are HUGE supporters of their homebase Philadelphia Flyers. wonder the OLN crew sounds so freakin' bitter, even with all of their biasness towards the nearby Devils.

** - Those of you who do not get the Airplane! reference, shame on you.

*** - When are they going to FINALLY get someone else to do the narration/voice-over work for the Stanley Cup promotional stuff? I'm getting a little sick of Mr. 24...yes, that's right, I am one of the extreme few people who do not care for "The Jack Bauer Show". Oh, and while I am at it, I don't care for Lost either. ;P

Edit as of 2:50 PM: After writing it in my LiveJournal blog, I felt the following, which can be considered a disclaimer of sorts, should be posted here...

"2) Flomax isn't a Viagra knockoff. It's for guys who can't pee cos of an enlarged prostate."

Don't blame moi...I was just putting down what someone else said, who might have been Jay Leno the more I think about it. Be it him or someone else, can you blame them? It is quite easy to be confused the way that ad is put together, even if they are flat out saying that Flomax is for prostate problems.

Anyway, regardless of who is wrong or not, still doesn't stop me from saying the Flomax ad AND other ads of its nature get on my nerves.

Edit #2: More from the "Tell this to Jay Leno/whoever, not me." department...

"Point of order... the enlarged prostate actually causes frequent sudden urges to pee, but difficulty doing so. I think the idea with the old guys in the convertible is that they wouldn't have to stop every 10 miles 'cuz someone had to use the little boys tree, like my dad did growing up. I guess that part of it just resonates with me in a way it wouldn't for others...

And I am sick of the ad, but it beats the bloody beep-beep one."

In other words, it's basically the "guy version" of the "Gotta go! Gotta go! Gotta go right now!" commercial.

Yeah..."Beep beep!" is pretty bad too. Scares me that that is an actual song AND group doing it. o_O

Y'know, if only I knew that one of my comments that wasn't even about the Canes/hockey would generate this much stuff...I would have thought that if anything generated any controversy, it would have been my comment about not liking Lost. CERTAINLY NOT my Flomax complaint. Oy vey...

The funny thing is that I can listen to the song much more easily than I can do the commercial. Weird.
