See the resemblance between Henke and the Swedish Chef?
No? Well, they both have similar facial hair. The resemblance was more of how the Rangers played in Sweden, and how the Swedish Chef cooks. Disorganized, disjointed, a bit haphazard.
I suppose starting a year 0-0-2 could be much worse. I hate those goddamn shootouts. And OT games need not apply in the first two games of the season. Just sayin’.
Few things: I watched only Friday’s game, since I was away from home most of Saturday afternoon. I followed the game closely on Friday, since I watched it, and Saturday I followed on Twitter. It was funny listening to Sam Rosen calling the game for Rangers on Friday, as every time he stumbled over Mike Richards from the LA Kings’ name, like he wanted to say “RICH-ter.” Saturday, I heard that Bradley Richards scored his first goal. Welcome to New York! Or rather, Stockholm.
It just sucks though because I think the Rangers just aren’t used to a guy who not only knows how to score but can set it up too. What a novel thought. It’s almost as if they weren’t prepared though they’ve been practicing with him for quite some time. It’s like – holy crap, we’re no longer Smurfs On Ice!
Like, the whole la-la-la look-at-me I’m-so-pretty thing is no longer applicable. Except it kinda is, cause if they’re not prepared for a shooter-and-doer like Richards, then we’re in bigger trouble than we thought.
But fear not, Ranger fans, we’ve got this one. So we drop two in Sweden to start the season, big deal. Though it was kind of a big deal for the homecoming for King Henrik or “Henke” as they call him in his homeland.
So how appropriate that the Swedish Chef throws shit around in his kitchen, and the Rangers threw shit around during their games in Sweden? They must have thought he was saying “Bourque Bourque Bourque,” like it was code for something for Ryan Bourque, rather than “Bork Bork Bork,” like his usual tune.
Ah well. Get back to the states boys, I miss you. Bork Bork Bork indeed.
