'Twas the night before the grab bag of nights before Xmas. Or so the Nucks holiday road tour rhyme goes. But who knows?

We've all been looking forward to this game - not just because it's the last time the Nucks play the Preds, but pretty much that's the reason.

The Nucks have won the previous games this season - Oct. 24 (3-2 W, road), Oct. 31 (5-2 W, home). The home game win was fun as Scary Pete put up a hattie. Then the somber 500 games of November took their toll.

Tonight's dinner game has the Nucks, possibly on the up-and-up and playing the Taco Tough Technique again.

Don't expect any roster changes... not that or Nucks PR will let us know... they're all out to lunch or dinner.

Instead we can review the season uppers and downers thus far - courtesy of

Jordi Savall is my fav Viol and Viola de Gamba player. And musical genius. Sure, he's a bit old skool, but 300 year old tunes sound just as fresh today as they did before the league of record companies expanded the genre curve to infinity. Also, while it sounds old, he wrote this improv piece barely a decade ago. Bon Appetit!

Comment System How-To

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
