Dear Most Valuable Losers:

(LD Note: trust me on this, as I know my losers)

Dear Most Valuable Losers:

Yesterday, continuing a long-standing trend, another Toronto reporter took a cheap shot at Leaf fans. This time it was Howard Berger who called us "losers" but we've seem the same cookie-cutter article from virtually everyone who covers the team.

Quite frankly, we've had enough.

As fans, we believe that those most deserving of our praise and our scorn are directly involved in the game, whether it's on the ice, in the press box or in the executive corridors. Fans don't pencil in the starting five, make bad trades, or write the headlines of the day and shouldn't be blamed (or praised) for the totals in the wins and loss column.

Hockey may be just a game but it's also a passion. If you're looking for passionate hockey coverage that offers insight and humour and you're sick of being blamed for supporting a team you're passionate about, you have a better option.

It's time to leave the media superstars behind. There's compelling, timely, wide-ranging content waiting just for you online in the Barilkosphere.

Many have found this better way of following the Leafs, but not every Leafs fan has been so lucky. Please send this message to your fellow Leaf fans via e-mail or postings on message boards and let them know that they do have a choice.

We hope you'll join us here in the Barilkosphere and become regular readers.

Today, I've decided that for Halloween tonight, it's Freddie Mercury as a costume.That's right--big stache So today's FYY is a celebration of Freddie Mercury day!

I started really listening to Queen just recently, since I had to listen to Bohemian Rhapsody about a billion times in order to write the Maple Leafs season preview for MYFO

clip one: Live Aid Bohemian Rhapsody/Radio Ga-ga

clip two: "I Want to Break Free", just because it's a fun video

clip three: "don't Stop Me Now"

Loser League (and general Fantasy UPDATE)

You know what I just realized? Since I set up the loser league, I haven't don any updates at all on it. I should do this much more often. So here it is, update one. As you can see, my team Wysh!SmellsLikeRoses is currently in fourth. HOWEVAH, this is a league for losing so the team TheMightySOckKickers (Jaredoflondon) are currently winning. This is really easy when your entire team is either injured or not available (Hint, HINT).

I'm also in the Barry Melrose Rocks invitatational League:At least my team name is among the most honest I've ever seen. Here's the roster:

I'm also in the Power Play's fantasy league:
Yeah. I'll just let the picture speak for itself

Oh, you Crazy LOLeafs!

Friday Youtube Yoinkage, October 24, 2008

OK sailors, I'm doing something a bit different for this week's FYY. I'm doing YouTube searches of players and taking the video that corresponds to that player's number.
Example--clip one, I looked up Alex Steen. He wears number 10 so here is the tenth video that comes up in search results:

Clip two: the 8th video of Carlo Colaiacovo. He hits Mike Comire and his bones don't even explode!

clip three: video number 9 in a search for Niklas Hagman:

An Open Letter to Matt "Matthew" Stajan

Dear Matt Stajan,

Look, we seriously need to talk. I know this season isn’t easy for you. I mean, you were w healthy scratch and all, and I know that must be hard for you. I’m not a hockey player—hell, I’ve never even been on a team in any sport. I know it must royally suck for you but…I could understand it.

I’m not saying you’re a bad person or anything like that. I mean, you’re a much, much better player than most of the people out there and you’re good to media people. That’s not an easy task, especially with the team as it is. I know you do charity things with the little kids and it’s really sweet of you. Even though I usually don’t like little kids, I think it’s really nice and caring of you.

It’s just that lately I’m not all that impressed with you. Like I said, I’m not saying you’re a bad person or anything. I’m not mad, I’m just…disappointed. You’ve done good work in the past-maybe not the best, but the bar is set high. It’s just that the way that you’re playing makes me feel, how do I say, unfulfilled. It really makes me sad since I know you could probably do better—not break all the records better, but better than you are now. I suppose I’m really afraid that any really good moves you’ve done were just flukes and you really aren’t such a great player.

Dammit, I know there are more complete players on the team out there. I know there are tougher hitters, better faceoff people, better plus/minus guys just better…hockey players out there. Like I said, I’m not mad or anything and I’m not totally throwing you out just yet. I just think we need…a bit of a break, you know? A bit if a breather for a while.

Does this suck? Yes, of course it does and I’m sorry and--

Oh dammit, not the fuck me eyes. You know I can’t say no to—

Ok, Fine, You’re right. Alex Steen is in no way a better all around player. And sure, I’ll help you out on your rent again. It’s been 5 months in a row, but I don’t mind. Sure, you can always crash on my couch. If you’re hungry, I think there’s some left over mac and cheese in the fridge. *siiiiiigh*

Friday YouTube Yoinkage, October 17, 2008

Today I celebrate the comedic greatness of Jon LaJoie (even though he is a Habs fan :P)

Clip one: Show me Your Genitals 2. Part one is awesome sauce, but part two is hockey related. "I'm the Wayne Gretzky of sexual stuff..."

clip two: A man in a Habs shirt beats the ever-loving crap out of a man in a Flyers shirt. Enjoy

Clip three: Not Giving a Fuck. It's not hockey related, but it's fun advice

FYY, October 10, 2008

For today's Friday YouTube Yoinkage, I'm doing something a bit different.This week, I've got three songs that may be excellent theme songs for this season for all the Leafs fans. Feel free to throw in your own suggestions in the comments

clip one: "Bad Moon Rising" by Credence Clearwater Revival:

Clip two "Comfortably Numb", as seen in "the Wall"

clip three: This version of "Hold me, thrill me, Kiss me, kill me" (OK fine, I just thought a Dexterized version of this song was awesome.)

One year? Already? for serious?

And yet you (presumably) still read

See? even Lil Lindros is celebrating!

As hard as it is to believe it, The Wonderful World of Loser Domi is already one year old today. That’s really incredible, especially since my first post was the Toronto Maple Leafs jersey re-designed as a pot leaf Yes, even after failed reverse psychology, bad drawings, angry letters , nekkid photos overly gratuitous YouTube yoinkage , and killing the entire team you’re all still reading (at least I assume so—those numbers form sitemeter can’t all be from me scouring my own archives.)

I’d like to thank all you guys for making this a whole lot more fun than t would be alone. To be honest, I figured I’d do about 5 posts and quit. I’d like to point out some of my favourite comments left by my loyal (all of 6) readers throughout the year:

Jaredoflondon, on Leafer Madness, final chapter:

if I were dealing with Betman, there would be hedge clippers involved, and at least one variety of poisonous snake.

Dayna on the same thing:

I seriously love plot holes. I may now actually watch a leafs game and not swear when they touch the puck. You made me laugh, and it softened my leaf hating heart... I don't know if I like that.

@jared - This sounds like a good plan to me.

MF37 on Leafer Madness, part 7

Wow...Candy Land. As a father of a four year old, I can confirm that you have have nailed the perfect game for Woz.

Sherry on Music Men at the ACC

I'm a Mississauga native and I do in fact get mistakened for a hardcore gangsta all the bloody time.

Lori on Favre to Sundin: "Quit Dicking around, man!"

haha, excellent. You were very generous to Favre in the complete sentence department.

Greener on Being Todd Bertuzzi

He looks like every doofus B.A. student on Youtube whose about to watch 2girls1cup.

General Borchevsky on

I like this one a lot. It'll be important to keep an accurate count of the crayons to make sure he doesn't stick any up his nose or in his ears. Also, he's a hungry boy - he might eat them.
Good to have him back on the team, though.

Jaredoflondon on Bloggonation Nubbin' Rubbins

god damn, the joke potential here is overwhelming, I don't know where to start. I got nothing, the funny part of my brain is having 3-stooges syndrome right now. DICK JOKE!!

OMGWTFTML on Just a Story from a Player's Perspective: Evgeni Malkin

I love this
Normally I go for the slash when it comes to fan fiction. There is something about reading how Osgood admires Zetterbergs body in the locker room that makes me laugh.

Eyebleaf on Carlo Colaiacovo's Amazon Antics

"Amazon? Is this where all the books come from?" stajan would so say something like that, that idiot. damn stupid sexy stajan.

Down Goes brown on Obligatory Thoughts on Certain Departures

A real bullet would have just whizzed by his head, glove side.

LeafFaninVan on the same thing:

In World of Raycroft do you lose levels the more you play?

Scotty Hockey on Cock Knockers, Incorporated: Volume 2

Watch out Sean! Maaarrrrtttyyy WANT PIE! Never get between a fat man and his food

Zack on Loser League

I'm gonna suck so hard, it's gonna feel like I moved into the middle of the Large Haldron Collider.

So feel free to exchange great memories, high fives, glove taps, alcoholic beverages, sexual favours, etc, etc in the comments. Once again THANK YOU for coming in to this little corner of the internet
