October 28th, 2006 - Canes vs. Lightning: Random Musings and Observations

A wittle tidbit about last was the third anniversary of the greatest Canes game I ever attended. Therefore, no wonder the Canes overall kicked a** and took names.

- THREE GOALS IN FORTY-THREE SECONDS?! Wow...just, WOW. Just think, if it weren't for that, the Canes would have lost yet another game. Definitely a nice early birthday gift... :D

- Speaking of birthdays, Eric Staal celebrated his early AND in style tonight, being primed for the hat trick AND an assist to boot. Schweet, especially to those, like me, who made Eric their first pick for their Fantasy teams.

- Speaking of Fantasy teams, I may have to look into grabbing Scott Walker from the Free Agents...dudeman may very well be the best Cane as of now, at least point-wise.

- But, back to Staal...anyone who does not have Staal as their #1 Star for tonight is full of it.

- HOW ABOUT THOSE PENGUINS? Anytime they win AND the Flyboys go down is a good, no, GREAT TIME. Not to mention that Sidney Crosby kid and his first hat trick... *gives a thumbs up with an expression on her face similar to Wayne Campbell's*

- HOW ABOUT THOSE THRASHERS? Ok, I don't know why I said instead: HOW ABOUT THOSE SABRES FINALLY LOSING? About time they showed the world that they're human afterall...

- Last, bu certainly not least, I made and tried the Peter Criss drink as I promised, and found it to be better than the Ace Frehley one, continuing my theme leading up to the "witching day"...

Peter Criss

Fill shaker with ice.
1 1/2 oz. Gin
Fill with Milk.
1 tablespoon of Cream of Coconut
Combine and swirl capfuls of Blue Curacao, Orange Juice, and Pineapple Juice in a shot glass.
Pour the shot glass' contents over the shaken mixture.
Fill glass with ice, and fill with the resulting drink.

After sampling this and liking it more, I am wondering if the Ace Frehley would be better off without Peppermint Schnapps. I'll have to find that out much later...for up next will be the version of these drinks named after that ol' demon, Gene Simmons.
