The Sens saw Too Short at a sushi place in Hollywood and were pretty excited about it

From the notebook of Bruce “Gettin’ It” Garrioch of the Ottawa Siz-un:

With an extra day in Los Angeles, the Senators did a little sightseeing Tuesday. With Erik Condra and Kyle Turris as tour guides, rookie Jean-Gabriel Pageau and winger Cory Conacher went to see the ‘Hollywood’ sign in the hills after practice.

“Someone had to show them around a little bit,” said Condra before the game.

Pageau enjoyed the whole experience and was especially pleased to catch a glimpse of 47-year-old rapper Too Short, who makes his home here. “We had a nice tour,” said Pageau. “We saw (Too Short) when we went for Sushi in Hollywood. It was fun to see a celebrity there,” said Pageau.

“Pageau’s 5-foot-9, so it’s no wonder he was excited to see Too Short,” is something I expected to see in Garrioch’s column, and was surprised I didn’t.

    Funny, Too $hort rapped about the $ens chances to win the Stanley Cup this year back in 1985:

    “Just like pimp but what’s the fact
    The fact they just couldn’t get with that
    They were all frustrated all mapped out
    Didn’t even know what to rap about”

    Looks like that’s the highlight of your season, boys!

    We all know that the championship is going to land in the WILD WILD WEST!

    Notwithstanding the ‘childishness’ of this story, it sure is a relief that we Kings prevailed last night. But in saying that however, I’m still ‘not’ liking what I’m seeing from our team so far ? Of course it was good to see Captain Brown scoring finally and for Carter to ‘carry the day’ yet again … but man, we blew a three goal lead ? Anyway, we’re now off to the Carolinas to play the lowly Hurricanes on Friday. So perhaps that will afford us the opportunity to ‘bust’ things wide open here and finally get going ?

    GO KINGS GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What the hell does this have to do with hockey? “I heard Lundqvist was at a hollywood premier the other night. He loved the movie.”

    My sister could dig up better nhl news without requiring a paycheck to do so.

      Do you know what movie he went to? We need a post for this afternoon.

        Probably an adorable romp about a goalie who’s in a contract year and just can’t seem to make a save…

      What’s your sister’s email?

        Friends … if you’re short on material today, then perhaps you might consider the following:



        On another warm and pleasant evening here at Grandview GC, ardent LA Kings fan and ‘quality’ ball-striker Blomfeld left ‘no stone unturned’ on his way to carding a very respectable ‘8’ over 80. Said Blomfeld after the round … ‘hey man, even though that was a pretty decent outing, I still feel like I should have done more … driver was a bit shaky at first, but I got that dialed in by the turn … and I’m starting to finally get a handle on this new putter … anyway, I’ll be back here tomorrow man” …

    Boxers or briefs for Sidney? Now this would be news. :-)

    Don’t look at me and don’t ask me why
    Mama’s next door getting high
    Even though she’s got five mouths to feed
    She’s rather spend her money on a H-I-T
