A Dash Of Self-Delusion Here, A Sprinkle Of Homoeroticism There

"In my mind, it's absolutely embarrassing that we haven't won these games. I think there's a lot of good things out there all three games," Selanne said. "If somebody has to win four in a row when they are down 3-0, this can team can do it. This team hasn't quit one time this season and we're not going to quit this time either.

"The ketchup bottle is open so we just have to keep pushing," Selanne added. "Our goal scoring in this series has been like ketchup bottle. It's hard to get it out, but when it comes, it's going to come and it's going to come a lot."

Seriously? I used to like the little Finnish-Flash but what was that? He must have been a little off his rocker after Pronger cranked him a couple times.

I won't say the Oilers were lucky last night, rather fortunate to come out of that game with a win. It would have been a new series if the Ducks pulled out a victory, particularly since I have never seen the Oil beat up as bad physically.

Great quote. Though not nearly as startling as the sheepish admission that Stoll and Harvey were sleeping together.

The "but it was a King-sized bed" rationale was priceless.

Mmm... ketchup. But given my experience with ketchup in bottles, just cuz it's open and upside down doesn't mean the ketchup's coming out. The BBQ sauce, on the other hand... mmm... BBQ duck...

I don't know what Selanne's deal is this year, but I swear he's used a 'ketchup-bottle' analogy like three different times this year. In his previous stint with the Ducks, I don't recall that ever being a Teemetaphor.

There must be have been some life-changing ketchup event in Teemu's life, maybe in Denver?

We're already lobbing perfectly good steak onto the ice.

Now it's time for a bottle of Heinz.

(To make it easy on the clean-up staff, it really should be the plastic kind.)
