One Man’s Meat…

Most people who know me know that I can’t stand most pop music, bollywood songs, dumb dance music and rap. I just can’t stand it and wonder why people even bother listening to that kind of drivel. Anyway, most places in Cochin play the stupid Hindi music with its really dumb lyrics these days, whereas they would have played good rock music about 10 years ago. Kind of like evolution in reverse!

Coffee shops, music stores, offices – almost everywhere. Now I frequent a couple of music stores in the city and buy atleast one music cd or a movie from them once or twice a month. They know me by name and its good to see that they also know my taste in music. I went in to both the stores today and in one of them, I stayed for a long while, figuring out what movie or cd to buy. They were playing some stupid Hindi movie music that was pissing me off. After sometime, most of the people had left the store, except for the store guys, 3 customer and me.

Now it was pretty obvious that the other 3 customers were also into rock music. One guy had an Iron Maiden t-shirt and another had a Metallica shirt. The 3rd dude was dressed more or less like me, button down shirt and jeans. The store guys changed the music to fit the 4 of us – they put on a cd of classic rock hit singles! The 4 of us gave assuring nods towards the store guys. Now that’s what I call knowing your customer!

The Sens Beat Detroit

The Ottawa Senators beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 in a match-up between the best of the East vs the best of the West and to enjoy bragging rights in what some NHL writers are calling a possible Stanley Cup final. Sens captain Daniel Alfredsson scores two power play goals, including the game winner with 2:56 remaining to lift Ottawa to a 3-2 win over the Detroit in a matchup of the league’s top two teams. Ottawa leads the Eastern Conference with 62 points, second overall to Detroit’s total of 70 atop the West. Mike Fisher also had a goal in the first period. Detroit scored twice in the third, tying it with 7:54 remaining after Senators All-Star Dany Heatley departed earlier in the period with an apparent right shoulder injury.

Steve Yzerman was honored by the Senators before the game for his recent induction into the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame. The Red Wings legend and Ottawa native dropped the puck in a ceremonial faceoff.

Two days ago the Sens beat Buffalo 3-2 in a shoot-out victory at home. Sean Donovan & Alfredsson had the regular period goals while Dean McAmmond had the winning shoot-out goal. On the 5th of this month Ottawa had a 4-3 over time victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Randy Robitaille scores two goals (does this guy always only score two goals?), Heatley also had a goal and Fisher scored the OT winner.
