As any true Kings fan knows, the Ducks suck. Yea yea, they did fine a few years back, but they still suck. Besides, anyone who roots for a team based on a movie… well… I just don’t know what to say about that. Despite that fact, Sue over at Ducks Daily Blog recently asked a number of her fellow bloggers (myself included) to answer a few questions about our thoughts on the Ducks.
Since bagging on the hated Ducks should never be restricted to those of us lucky enough to get emails from Sue, I thought I’d make this a great opportunity for you all to weigh in with your thoughts on the Ducks, and post some of my personal thoughts. Without further ado, here are the questions, complete with my answers:
1. Are the Ducks a skill-oriented/finesse team, or goonish? Specific examples are encouraged.
C’mon, this is an easy one. They’re untalented hacks, and George Parros isn’t going to change anyone’s mind (even with that mustache). I suppose when they’ve got Selanne and Kariya on their team they’ll edge a bit closer to finesse, but I have faith that they’ll remain thuggish goons rather than hockey players.
2. Who is the most hated player on the Ducks?
Anyone wearing the Ducks jersey? Honestly, before he was traded the easy answer was Chris Pronger. For now I suppose I’ll go with Ryan Getzlaf. He’s a tool, and he looks like a douche. That’s pretty much enough for me…
3. How do you feel before a game against the Ducks?
Pumped up. It’s always good to orchestrate a beat down on a cross-town rival. In recent years it has been particularly exciting. I can just say that I can’t wait until we meet in the playoffs and we are able to more directly end the season of those bastards.
4. Have you ever been to the hellish arena in Anaheim?
Nope. Though I’ve wanted to visit when the Kings play there, and I may make the journey down the 5 sometime next season, I can safely say that I’ve avoided that godforsaken arena with the best of them.
5. What is your favorite memory of the Ducks?
Watching them lose the Stanley Cup Final against New Jersey in game 7. I had the lovely privilege of watching the game with a pitiful Ducks fan/friend(ish). It was some kind of great to watch the devastation in person.
So what are your thoughts? Bonus points for humorous (and true) answers. And if you’ve got other questions to add to the survey, feel free to leave them in the comments! Looking forward to reading your thoughts!
