    2. What it boils down to, is freakin' common sense.
      What the HE double hockey sticks, has happened to common sense and courtesy? Our buses and metros actually show pic-to-grams which tell us to to give up seats to handicapped, pregnant and elderly persons and to take the backpacks off and hold them. DUH!

      And that's my rant for today, been awhile.

    The Goat may have started a trend. The Blue Jays pulled Travis Snider out of the game last night in the 6th inning and traded him to the Pirates. Classless.

    4. Saw her interview and she is AWESOME. Adorable, sweet, great gap-toothed smile. AND she could kick my ass. I would be in love if she hadn't mentioned her husband

    Back to AK for a second. Now I know a lot of people on here think he is a lazy player and inconsistent. well my thoughts:

    1) Big physical player

    2) played well with Moen and Eller, but wasn’t used efficiently by the coaching staff most of the time and I would have liked to see him play more with Eller again.

    3) A 20-25 goal scorer is by nature an inconsistent scorer because there are 82 games in a season. I have no doubt that he can even put up 45-50 points which is on par with the production that Doan would give.

    4) He could be had cheap and on a short term contract which wouldn’t handcuff the Habs in signing players like Patches, DD, Leblanc etc.

    5) I think he would feel he has a lot to prove because the Habs already traded him away once. Perhaps he has had his wake up call.

    6) The Predators seemed to have used him efficiently as he got 12 pts in 19 games for them.

      I'd rather have a healthy Gio back...for a full season. There's no quit in that guy.

  11. The Chinese aren't on drugs, they're just conditioned since birth to do these incredible feats. Or they're a team of bionic humanoids. Either way, they're awesome.

      Right. The Chinese would never cheat.

      That's what the "Olympics" are all about. Who the best cheaters are with the best chemists and medical staff to hide everything. It all comes down to which governments want to spend how much to win.
