1-2-3 Hockey: 45 of 45
The peacock is the heraldic symbol of stately IPB Manor; we have long wanted a peacock motif (and maybe even real-life peacocks), but never seem to get around to creating one. So imagine our delight when, after deciding we needed a sundial in our new front-yard folly, Boomer looked online for a sundial and immediately found this. A bronze, faux-weathered peacock! It’s amazing! And it arrived here in almost no time. And it looks brilliant. Stately IPB Manor is WAY more peacocky now.
AND NOW, MORE NEW HOCKEY CONTENT!
We had grand ideas to have some sort of brilliant, witty, off-the-cuff NHL season preview today, but you know what? We’re both sick, and Pookie had to work late tonight, and that just seemed like a lot of work. We know how the season is going to play out, of course, because we’re expert prognosticators and all. But we’re also lazy, and really, why don’t you just put on your patient pants and watch the season if you want to know what’s going to happen? Why should we do all the work for you? No, instead of giving you all the easy way out by telling you how it’s going to end, we’re going to share with you a list of things that are not as good as a fresh, new hockey season kicking off.
1. “Walker, Texas Ranger”
2. “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”
5. Reading a book
6. Going outside to enjoy the nice weather
7. Whining about there being no hockey
8. Interacting with non-hockey fan friends
9. Following off-season and preseason hockey news
10. Ilya Kovalchuk as a King
Wow! That list is terrible! Who would want to have to deal with those things?? Thank god there’s a new fresh hockey season, with a Kovalchuked Devils, starting just about… now!
