We're Six!

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday, Dear Peerless…
Happy Birthday…tooooooo youuuuuuuuuuuu

Aw, guys…you shouldn’t have. It seems like just yesterday, not six years ago today, that we penned our first scribble in this space.

“Yeah, and to be honest cuz, it kinda sucked.”

“’Kinda?’…It was the sort insipid, dishwater dull blather that gives blogging a bad name.”

"Yeah...didn't have a title, or nuthin'"

You’re too kind, but…

"Aren’t you going to blow out the candles?"

“Und I heff joost de ting for dat.”

Well, well… if I isn’t Dr. Vynot Schootdepuck. It’s been a long time, Doc…

“Ja, und I’m not here ein moment too soon…you could schtart a fire mit all dose cendles.”

Well, we can’t heff…uh, have that, can we? But that just looks like one of those air cans you use on computers.

“Ah, dats vere you’re wrong…vatch dis…”

Hey hey HEY! All that thing does is blow hot air!

“Ja, joost like you, Mr. Schmarty Blogger.”

You couldn’t have a girl jumping out of cake?

“Uh, cousin? It’s supposed to be a birthday ‘wish,’ not a birthday ‘fantasy.’”

“Fearless, you mean ‘fantasy,’ like the Caps winning a Stanley Cup?”

I gotta get new cousins…

Your "It's an Ovie-ful Life" series back in 2009 hooked me to your blog. A fun, fresh take at a game (and team) we sometimes take too seriously. Thanks for all the enjoyment.
