BOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!! Did we pick a good time to take a little break or what?
We all knew it was coming but we didn't think it was going to be so dramatic and quick. Mike Fisher, probably the most popular Senator of all time, next to Alfie; GONE! Chris Kelly, unsung hero to the Underground and long-time Sen; GONE! Folks, the re-build has begun and it's no joke.
Bryan Murray has apparently re-thought his 1-year plan to fix this team and struck a death blow to the old guard. By moving two very popular core members of the Sens, notice has been served that the times, they are a-changin'. We obviously spend quite a bit of time on this epic moment in team history as we see the end of one era come to a close and consider the genesis of the next. We also ponder what moves may be yet to come in the next week and a half as the GM stock piles picks and cap space.
We have 7 tank assaults to cover this week, as we were away for so long, and we race through them so we can get to the good stuff. Strangely, there was even a win in there but of course it had to be the one damn game we needed to lose more than any other! We did, however, get a taste of what it will be like to watch some of the young talent that will make up the next generation of this team and we saw some promising signs.
Many other topics needed to be verbally fondled this week, including our belated thoughts on the all-star game and it's various points of interest, including the draft and the epic fail that was the Guardian Project. We also look at a proud moment in SU history that includes Leafer abuse, Mario's full-retard comments and Ray Emery's new lease on life. We catch up on the results of our last few poll questions, read a ton of e-mails and Stooli provides us with a classic punch in the face of reality.
Finally, don't miss the announcement of the 2011 SU Rage Rave being held this Saturday night. It should be an epic evening as the Snes take on the Make Me Laffs. Think there will be a few elbows bent during that game?
Thanks for waiting for us to get back behind the mics. We were jonesing for a fix of rage ourselves and we know you were too. We hope this episode was worth the wait. Ok, now everyone back up on the tank! We have points to squander!
Private Parts, out!
