BoC Turns Two!

Happy 2nd birthday, blog!

I know the unwritten code for hockey bloggers is to avoid unnecessary profanity, but HOLY FUCKING MONKEYSHIT! IT’S BEEN TWO YEARS?!

Hard to believe, right? What started as one of uberblogger James Mirtle's internet pranks has escalated into this collection of assholes?! Amazing.

Well, what can we expect from BoC in its Terrible Twos? If child development is any indication, we’ll probably see an increase in temper tantrums, control-freak tendencies, and aggressive testing of our boundaries.

Frankly, that sounds fantastic. I can’t wait.
As a complete aside, one of my friends just sent me this link, and I think it's a hilarious dilemma: Will this traffic cop take the fall to keep Ryan Getzlaf out of traffic school? More to come, I'm sure.

About the Getzlaf thing.. the first comment on that link about sums it up:

Is it wrong? Yes.
Would I get the same treatment? No.
Do I care that much? Not really.

Frankly, I am more bothered by the fact that the CHP are pulling over people driving 84 on the toll road.

one saturday and a ticket wouldn't kill the guy. it's just one less game to watch the Stars and Wings hash it in the WCF out instead of the Ducks.

Or in another light, Getzlaf could be thinking to himself that he could be playing for the Stanley Cup at that moment but instead of sleeping thru a traffic safety video.

Earl Sleek said...

Yeah, an 84 mph ticket is pretty lame, isn't it? (Though I've gotten one for going 80 in a carpool lane.)

I guess the bright side is that Getzlaf can have something in common with his teammates May and Bertuzzi -- scandals with Johnny Law.

You guys are so behind the times. The Sharks have had judges in their back pockets ticket-fixing for years. That is so 2004.

Happy Birthday, BoC!
I think the shark needs his diaper changed and the expression on the king's face is priceless.

Happy Birthday, BoC! I hope your blogger alter egos never turn into well adjusted adults :p

RudyKelly said...

The King in that picture is already over this shit.

I am outraged over Getzlafgate and demand that he be suspended. I wouldn't be surprised if they kicked him out of the league for this.

(But seriously, I'm more impressed that hockey players are famous enough to get tickets taken care of for them.)

Side note: just because I didn't get to see any of last night's G1 between DET and DAL, that didn't stop me from making a (day late) PuckToon about that Franzen guy.

Mike said...

There's an unwritten code we can't curse unnecessarily? Fuck that Earl!

No seriously, congrats on year #2. You, Mike Chen, RudyKelly, jamestobrien and anyone else I may have missed make this a killer read. Daily. Well done.

Now, start supporting some REAL teams...just kidding!

Why no love for the Coyotes? There must be someone out there willing to officially make this a BoP site.

I, for one, am really looking forward to potty training the BoC. Or at least moving to pull-ups.

This is a great site. I don't know about any of you, but I'm no less a fan of my team, but have a lot more empathy for the other BoC team's fans. I've even abandoned my prejudice against Orange County fans as the nonsense that it is.

"Stanley Sippy Cup, now. Stanley Sippy Cup now!"

Fucking awesome.

And that's the thing I neglected to say, very infant of me. Thanks to all the readers and commenters who keep this interesting and keep us honest.

You guys and gals are fantastic.

Happy birthday! Keep up the good stuff.

Love the cartoon as always. The Star sucking his thumb and the bratty crying Duck are my personal faves.
