72 fucking saves for Luongo. 36 in overtime. Stop and consider that. One shy of the NHL playoff record.

36 in regulation. on 40 shots. And then? Overtime.

36 shots. 36 saves. And a win, thanks to m-f'in Henrik Sedin.

The Ford can't even blame Marty Turco. Nothing he could do.

Damn. Damn. Damn. Damn.

Ladies and gentlemen, we're now watching the sixth longest game in NHL history. Of course, the fourth longest was a loss for the Stars. That ain't good.

Y'know, say what you will about this game, it really should get Mike Keenan fired. How he ever thought it was a good idea to get rid of Roberto Luongo -- even for Todd Bertuzzi -- is beyond The Ford. Seriously. 62 saves in six periods. Damn.

Also, this is the highest scoring 4OT game ever. Eight goals, with another on the way, some day.

Just thought you should know that.

Many things to note, but right now, The Ford is grabbing some quick Web time between the 3rd and 4th overtime in an epic matchup between The Official NHL Team and Vancouver.

Really, this game has been everything The Ford could expect, especially considering he didn't start watching until the third period.

But how can you not love a game that features The Official Team falling behind by two goals with 12 minutes left, and then storming back to score twice in 5 minutes.

And then no one scored.

For, um, let's see, 66 minutes at this point.

That's hockey, friends, and The Ford's eating it up.

At least until the Red Wings go 5 OTs in their playoff opener tomorrow night in The Ford's second Second Season at The Official Employer.

Ahhh... it's the most wonderful day of the year: Opening Day.

Yes, The Ford finally managed to make it to one of them, catching the Tigers' 10-inning loss to Toronto with a bevy of buddies including, but not limited to, The Official Girlfriend, The Official Best Friend and The Official Tiger. (OK, The Official Tiger was a bit distracted, seeing as how he was pitching, but he was with The Ford in spirit...)

Though, just as the mice will play when the cat's away, when The Ford's at a Tigers game ... yes, the ladies will seek out his Myspace profile.

14 separate friend requests from scantilly clad women The Ford doesn't know. 14.


If The Ford wasn't skeptical of any medium where porn is given away for free, he'd almost be excited.

As it is, though, he's just annoyed he has to go clean out his friend requests. Again.
