Humpday Morning Funny

As you know, we've been running our UFA Pool contest for a week or two now. Last week, I got the following email and thought little of it:

Giving away a free Nintendo Wii? Cool. Threats and name calling? Less so. Whatever.

Then, the other day I was surfing around and came upon a site that had this splashed across the top:


I'd rather not promote the site, so I won't tell you whose it is, but nearly as funny as putting together the above was one of the lead quotes in a prominent post on the site:
I am told that "most" of this may be very wrong
And yet he still gets traffic...

I guess it's easy to make threats when your "anonymous" LOL

Smart commenters know that Hockeybuzz, Eklund & Co. suck.

Shocking! JP becomes at least the 10,324th blogger to get the e-mail shakedown from a guy who used to defend himself on Kukla's site under the name "Susan."

Seriously, though -- he totally lifted the Julien scoop from my site The Fourth Period, and I'm still a little cheesed about that.

Eklund is the defination of ball sucking cock monkey.

I have a question though, how does one play the Wii that they win, when their eyes will be bleeding from having read that poll tóin's site (poll toin = a**h**e in irish, this is a family site after all)

I urge the management to ban anonymous comments.

I would like to go on record to say, I posted the first message. I despise eklund, and am quite a fan of this blog.

My wording was poor, and if Japers would like to delete it, go right ahead.

The other 2 anonymous comments aimed a tyler, are not mine.

Just wanted to let that be known

1) Getting away from the sillyness for a moment: Question for JP: With the early inking of Kimmo Timonen how many folks had the Flyers getting him? Chicago was our prediction.

Steve (Jersey) said...

I tried e-mailing Eklund once, see what he was all about. I guess since I'm 18, he didn't even feel I was worth his time.

I'd love to go toe-to-toe with him just on basic hockey knowledge. Give me 10 rumors, give him 10, I'll take complete guesses and probably do better than him.

JP said...

Faux -

Quite a few people had Timonen -> PHI. Probably around 10 or 12 folks.

And let's try to keep the language and the taunting to a minimum, shall we?

Kevin said...

Wow, what a mega-dick.

By the way, according to "that guy" Briere was an e4 to sign with Buffalo by last night. Today, he's an e3 to Philly.

I also tried to e-mail Eklund to make a suggestion and never received a response. To prove a point I also e-mailed Paul at Kuklas Korner the same day and received a response withing two hours. Eklund is a complete joke and the fact that XM Home Ice puts him on makes them a complete joke as well. It's a shame to because they have a couple of really good hosts and they ruin it with Mike Ross, Boomer Gordon, Joe Thistle (program director) and bringing on Eklund.

Allsmokenopancake was the best name on HF boards. I don't even understand it, but I love it.

Jes Gőlbez said...

People still visit that site? (I havent been in years)
People still have him on talk shows? WTF???!

More proof that people are stupid.

allsmokenopancake said...

Rage; I used to be smokeandapancake, as I signed up for the caps boards shortly after seeing austin powers goldmember, then got banned, so re-registered with this, and it's stuck.

Rage said...

Well whatever, it's a sweet nickname.

CasonBlog said...

Eklund revealed as supposedly deceased Milly Vanilli member-e3.

The Acid Queen said...

Hey JP--what IP address did those two "anonymous" comments come from?

C'mon mang, ya gotta toss us a bone here.

See yer at the Draft.

Marky Narc said...

Huh. I had no idea the hockey blog community was a competition. Because, you know, what we really need is less hockey blogs.
