Hockey Meme

I'm on a roll tonight! Go typey-me!

TPTB over at SportSquee! have taken it upon themslves to tag me. I'm warning you, although I have been to a hockey game or two in my life, I know nothing about hockey. But I'm going to give it the old college try.

Without further ado, it's the "If I Were a Hockey Player" meme!

Team: New York Islanders
Uniform number: 2
Position: Defenseman (I can be very defensive)
Nickname: DG, Mookie

Dream linemates: Margee's former life coach, Mario, Wayne Gretzky (he plays hockey, right?)
Rounding out the PP [what's a PP?]: Brendan Witt, that guy whose name is Satan (but it's not pronounced the way you think) and Mookie Wilson
Job: handing out Juice Boxes and GoGurts, walking on people's backs
Signature move: the post-goal, Michael Jackson inspired, victory dance on skates

Strengths: rage at the world, flexibility
Weaknesses: the tendency to zone out at sporting events and to get distracted by the fun plastic beer bottles (and the beer within)
Injury Problems: Achy shoulder caused by heavy diaper bag and hunching over laptop
Equipment: You should see my equipment (sheah, that's what he said)

Nemesis: The Rangers. Even I know that, as a Long Islander, the Rangers are my enemy.
Scandal involvment: Punching the Geico gekko in the face, hijacking the Zamboni machine.

Who I'd face in the Stanley Cup Finals: Toronto Maple Leafs (When in doubt, pick on Canada. :))
What I'd do with the Stanley Cup after our victory: Eat Ben and Jerry's Karamel Sutra out of it, then wash it and give it to the Destroyer to wear as a hat.
Would the media love me or hate me: Hate me, because, really I probably wouldn't be too good at hockey.

I'm tagging anyone who wants to take a stab!

Awesome. Mario is going to be so proud to have made the team. And the gecko has it coming to him.516

Um - I can't get your read more to work - at least in Firefox.

I tried getting mine to do that a few months ago and gave up in frustration. There are some things I'm just not destined to learn *sigh*

Margee--It wouldn't be the same without Mario.

Hanrahan--the mental image is staggering.

Kristie--I don't know what's going on. Try clicking on the post title or the time at the bottom of the post.

OK - it works when I click on the title. Odd that isn't it? But now I can read the more part *g*

It's beyond annoying. I've spent so much time trying to get it to work, I just can't face sitting down to fix it.
