I really need to stop trash-talking

Or "I'm a curse to sports teams".

If you don't follow me on Twitter or talk about hockey online, you might not remember that I'm a hockey fan. The Canucks are "my" team, whether I'm happy for them or wondering what the hell happened to them, I'll be rooting for them all the way.

. . .

And I think that's the problem. So far this season, if I'm talking shit to fans of other teams, the Canucks LOSE to those teams. Granted, it's still really early in the season, but it's happened each time so far. I talked shit to Nick and Em before the season opener against the Penguins, and the Penguins beat them. Just a few days ago, I was trading trash-talk and talking about how the Canucks were going to beat the Flyers... and then they didn't. Both games were good games, but what happened when I kept my mouth shut and actually missed the game against the Oilers last night? THEY WON.

I'm just going to silently root for the Canucks, and not talk shit with anyone other than Flames fans. And Islanders fans, because... fuck the Islanders.

P.S. One of the cool people I've gotten to know online has been featured as Blogger's "Blog of Note" back on the 12th, for his second time. Go check his blog out, and follow him on Twitter. He's an awesome guy, and has been a strong proponent for peace lately. :)

I will agree with you on one note...fuck the Islanders.

I can't say bad about any Canadian team. Except the Leafs. They are the worst and I'm so embarrassed to be so close the them geographically. Last time I watched a game, it was at a Christmas party last year and my relatives were commenting that "at least they weren't falling down."

Your new blog layout even looks awesome on my phone! :-)

Thanks for being there man. I don't know anything about hockey but I'll defer to your wisdom: fuck the islanders.

@Nick -- As the one who shared that one with me, I figured that you would.

@Em -- I think I'm going to have to start openly rooting for whoever the Canucks play against, and silently hoping it "jinxes" them. :P

@Charles -- Glad that I'm not the only one that likes my layout! :)
