March Matchups: Petr Prucha vs. Frau Blucher

Ding ding...ding ding! Welcome back ladies and gentleman to the "Rangers In Seven" Arena. Tomorrow, is our main event and the last contest in our "March Matchups" series. Get ready for an old fashioned slobber knocker as we have Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair engaging in a "Triple Threat Match." A couple of items before we begin. I want to wish "Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe a happy 79th birthday and here's to a bunch more! Also, congratulations to Jim Ross who gets inducted into the W.W.E. Hall of Fame tonight. Way to go J.R.! By the way, try his BBQ sauce it's killer. Finally, before we begin, I want to say that due to some problems with, yeah you guessed right, The Dudleys, we were unable to get to all the matches we had planned for "March Matchups." I am inviting all of you back on April 13, for our big free-to-view "One Friday Night In April" card from the "Rangers In Seven" Arena. On that night, we will have the rest of our bouts that we had planned. Here are just some of the matchups scheduled for that evening:
Reggie Jackson vs. Rickey Henderson
Mark Messier vs. Gordie Howe
Patrick Ewing vs. Willis Reed
Rick Nash vs. Steve Nash
L.T. vs. Ray Lewis
Gordon Solie vs. Jim Ross
Denis Leary vs. Dennis Miller
"Triple Threat Match" #1:
Hillary Clinton vs. Barack Obama vs. John Edwards
"Triple Threat Match" #2:
John McCain vs. Rudolph Giuliani vs. Mitt Romney
Then we'll open up an even fresher can of whupass and pit the winner of those two "Triple Threat Matches" against one another!
Generally, in pro wrestling the main event is the last tilt on the card, however, the second to last bout is usually when a less serious contest takes place. I guess it gives folks a chance to reload on popcorn or to just return a call to nature. Whatever it is, we have a dandy for you today so let's hook 'em up!

Petr Prucha vs. Frau Blucher
Petr Prucha, 24, scored 30 goals as a rookie last season for the New York Rangers. The Czech native was drafted 240th overall in the 2002 NHL Draft by the Blueshirts, set a single season rookie power play goal mark last year with 16. Prucha, who lived with countryman Jaromir Jagr during the 2005-2006 season, has become a fan favorite at Madison Square Garden. Former teammate Darius Kasparitis found a song last season that gets played at M.S.G. after every Prucha goal. The song "Genghis Khan," is by someone or some group known as Dschinghis Khan. The "Hoo Haa" part sounds like the name "Prucha." There was even a funny clip during a Rangers' broadcast a year ago of Al Trautwig dancing to the "Prucha Song." Prucha has 19 goals this year including seven on the power play. He plays a pretty fierce style and has the uncanny ability to bounce up from some big hits by the N.H.L.'s toughest.
Cloris Leachman played Frau Blucher in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. If you know the movie then you'll get the whole joke. Basically the movie is a spoof on past horror films. It makes fun of the seriousness of classics like Dracula and Frankenstein. So every time the housekeeper's name "Blucher" is mentioned, nearby horses whinny and neigh, and quite often with the crackling sound of lightning in the background. Legend has it that "Blucher" means glue in German which would obviously scare any horse. However, the joke is not any deeper than my original point, which was that the movie is a spoof in every sense.
So who wins this one? Who else but "Hoo Haa" Prucha!
Keep it in the Ring!
