You know how lazy evenings and youtube works...So I ended up on the Canadian soccer team's 2012 Olympic games. Norwegian refs aside, it's just fun to watch Christine Sinclair and head coach John Herdmen's relationship. Got me thinking. I wish the coach of the Habs had a relationship like that with PK, or really anyone on the team besides DD and Cube. Of course they brought home bronze while the Habs...
Bergevin: "The players are revolting!'Therrien: "No kidding."
what we have there is a failure to communicate
House Of Cards, so apropopos, Great show,GYMFHG!
orange is the new rouge, blanc and blue
I've been intending to start watCHing that.
My beloved TiTs and less loved Jaro t shirts are now on the high shelf of my closet. I will not waste their fiber on the current situation.
AC will drop the puck tonight.
Finally broke down and bought a Game Center Live package. $50 for the rest of the season. From what I understand that includes the playoffs (in North America it doesn't because all playoff games are shown on TV, which is blacked out since then everyone is "in market". For us overseas it doesn't apply unless we have a cable channel that shows it, which Korea most certainly does not). Not that I have to worry about the playoffs. The point is, I don't have to wake up early on Sundays and run to my computer every 10 minutes now, I can watch the games after work (or when I wake up on Sundays, aka 2pm) with a beer like god intended. So I might not be able to comment here as much, but I'll be here post-my-game to rant. More so.
I meant run to my computer every 10 minutes on work days. I never leave my computer on Sundays.
Makes for a somewhat less stressful hockey experience.
No, I'm still a Habs fan. The stress remains.
Do I have to watch tonight? Mr. M secretly loves when they suck because I get pissed off and turn the channel. Dirty little dog. It may also mean he doesn't have to endure any payoffs. Grrrr.
1-0 canes over sens in the 1st.Go Canes.
At least we won't see timfuckingpeel tonight, he's doing the sens game.
Testing out my Game Center Live now with the Canes-Sens game. Very satisfied. I have no idea why I waited so long to do this. Like music and TV, they resisted the internet so long many in my generation just got used to the illegal way.
O-man...I have been deliberating this myself - 70 quid but it bodes mean tha I will have to listen to Hnic from time to time. Let me know how you get on with it. Shen the coach gets sacked - which I expect won't be much before the Olympic break, I will then get it.
And by "illegal" I mean "non-traditional". Nothing to see here, NSA.
Switching to the philthy-broon game like a BOSS.
I only have access to the sens.3-1 now.
I see the CH on a fan behind the philthy bench.
Refs already helping the broons. Daddy's on the phone.
Refs...errrr....I mean broons 1 philthy 0.
I'm seeing something new here. When one team is trying to score, there are teammates directly in front of the opposing net. Is this a revolutionary new strategy? I haven't seen that in recent memory. It seems to work. Maybe the Habs could try doing that. It's experimental, but who knows?
Before they all used to get in front of the net and often blocked TFS's view - score. Maybe coachless has told them not to get in front of the net, I mean what other reason could there be?
4-0 canes in the 2nd.
They were just praising chris neil for his play and his recent 100th goal and then he gets a 4 min high-sticking - love it.
SHG turris 4-2
6-3 less than 1 min left, sens are done even with empty net and a delay of game just called on canes.
Jeez Louis, I stop watching the Canes-Sens game and shit blows up. Still not watching. Time for bed.
Goodnight Orangeman, pleasant CH dreams.
I'm making a birthday dinner for my son tonight and then watCH the game.Go Habs Go!
watching this now awesomeHave you seen that "David Bowie Five Years" documentary? Thought it was excellent
When does the famous moment come? When he says "this is the last show we'll ever do?
Mick Ronson, man. Shit that guy could play
I think Ziggy was just rubbing Mick Ronson's junk on stage. nttawwt
To answer my own question from above, at the 1:23:30 mark. the concert is way better than the hockey game
p.s. right before they launch into Rock 'n Roll Suicide. That's good theatre
Go Habs go???
Did we win?I keed, I know there is no chance in hell we won.OK I haven't watched a game all week for the most part, I will watch tonight and my luck will singlehandedly turn the season around. HAHAHAHAH I kill me
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA VIEWING UPDATE for steve, the M and Saint P:halfway through the final season now. I've also watched the post S2 webisodes that take place on New Caprica, the movie with Captain Ensign Ro and her dubious morals, and the prequel movie with a young Adama during the first Cylon war (that one happened to be on Space last night)HOLY FUCK THIS SHOW. No really, it is really good. You know why I like it? At any given point, you can be rooting for or against any character. Hell, scene to scene you change your mind whether someone is good or just pissing you off. Both Adamas, the Prez, Baltar (though he's almost always pissing me off), even a binch of Cylons can be good or bad, you just don't know. Keeps you on your toes and makes viewing just so fascinating. I am going to be upset when I finish because there will be no more. I may plow through the rest tonight if the Habs start sucking quick
Prepare to plow.
WatCHing 24CH on TSN2 now. All the players just got named to their Olympic teams. They seem happy. I assume it won't last
They just showed the victory over the Hawks. It's been all downhill since then, right?

Dogfish Head kills
Yup, a Prof had some special-labelled stock shipped in for late Xmas gifts.
DINNER THREADJust a boring sandwich (had a huge dinner last night) BUT acoompanie by my delicious roasted garlic potatoes
Will be nice to see AC drop the puck and get a deserved Standing O.
He deserves a huge, extended ovation! A true legend
My big cat is curled up in his bed and is already snoring. The game hasn't even started.Tonight is gonna be steak sandwiches with au jus for dipping.
I have made post-dinner shooters to try to get through this game. Went nuts and mixed Irish whiskey, Kahlua, Grand Marnier, and some DiSaronno for moe. Topped with a splash of 7-up. Delish! I'll be asleep by 10:00 of the first period
Ooh, me likey!
Nice. Shaken or stirred?
stirred the booze mixture with a little ice just to dilute a tiny but. strained into shot glasses, and then the little topper of 7-up. it made enough for 5 shots. this won't end well
*tiny bIt. already this is not going well
Coulda been tiny butt. NTTIAWWT.
Cripes, I wish I was at that Duck/Kings tilt for a variety of reasons.
Sun and volleyball and John Hamm?
Just to name a few....
Cripes I wish I was anywhere else* for a variety of reasons*meaning watching this game we will lose, not hanging out with you FHFkids which is always awesome
Cripes may become or new Ack, Crap, Eesh, Fuck, Shit ...
One of the lab rats brought jello coffee shots to brunch on Friday. I'm still buzzed.
There's a possibility that I'll be at the Kings/Habs in March. Haven't decided yet.
AC!!!!!!That'll class up this crappy game
ok let's get this over with
FWIW, I hate that RDS goes to commercial during the singing of the anthem(s).
that's it, goon it up boys!
1-0 Peg on their first shot.
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!
I'm just gonna watch the leaf/Jets game. Habs have nothing to offer lately.
CASH IT FFS
6 PPGs on their last 50 Chances. Do it FFS!
Nice to see the Jets get the useless cold/galley combo of uselessness.
Nice spin by Bo.
Need some juce!
Flipped to the Jets game to laff, commercial break tune 'Lets Shake' by Teenage Head.
Flipped back the Habs game, commercial break tune 'Heidi, Heidi is a Ho.'
Still here. Half watching the game, half watching the final Ziggy Stardust show steve linked to upthread. Meanwhile, the Habs aren't playing half bad I would say. but SCORE FFS
I do love these Caps throwback unis. So many stars
Too funny as Peg fans boo the Prince$$ every time he touches the puck. Did mike richards and darren pang diss dion?
bob cold's voice goes up a couple octaves whenever his leaf touches the puck.
His diaper is wet.
Was EyeBro benCHed?
Glad you are enjoying BSG, 29, so many twists and turns in the show I didn't know what the hell was going on. Trish Helfer was freakin' hot, that's for sure.Frack me!
And so many different Sixes! They all have their own charms, I would frack all of them. though the one talking to Baltar in his head is kind of creepy. though, uh that wouldn't stop the fracking
Fracking is quite controversial here in NB lately. The government is advocating it.
Rod Langway was an excellent defenceman and would have been a Habs great like #19, but I sure liked Ryan Walter and Rick Green. Two big parts of the '86 Cup.
ok we're not losing!
12-3 shots against. that's... not good
I love the Netflix commercial about the hockey speech. Therein should give it a go.
ok 2nd let's go. SCORE FFS
Way to go Pavelec!
Cripes, could you give Ovie more space and time? Should you get him a table and buy him dinner?
I feel like crêpes.
I get that Price couldn't see it, but your 5 hole should never be that open.
well me watching obviously doesn't make any difference luck-wise. so I'll be over in the corner watching BSG
Legal versions I assume?
Certainly the refs aren't helping. They shouldn't need them to help, though.
Princess scores and bob cold just wet his diaper!
Caps have the same amount of goals as the Habs have shots! No personal pride on the team. Why do we care?
pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass no shot.
4-1 Jets. Optimus!
The only good thing that can come from this is Half MT being fired.
We've had a lot of Budy calls lately
Cripes, I've had my quota of hockey suckage for this week, channel surfing.
Beyond Bizarro. Ref raises his arm to call a WAS penalty, play continues, WAS goal, Habs penalty. Fuck off bettman.
It was going to be against the Habs because their darling Caps could never do anything wrong. Then they still call the penalty because the league is unbelievably corrupt.
Calm down refs. The Caps don't need your help. BS calls.
Maybe it's the red, white and blue but I feel like I'm watching Canada play Norway at the Olympics.
Can 8 Olympians be this badly coached?
Yeah! A cheap ass penalty on WAS.
I see a phantom call against the Habs within the next minute or so.
Could Patches shoot that more lazily?
All jokes aside, this is the worst I've seen them play all year. This is the worst I've seen any NHL team play all year. This is the worst I've seen any NHL team play...ever.
I don't get it. How can they dissolve into such a steaming pile of shite in such a short time? They looked good before Christmas.
Except for TFS and KidG, total lack of effort.
How on god's green earth is that not a penalty against Ovie?
Time to see if DGMB has balls.
I sense they have quit on eMTy. What other explanation can there be?
Him and some of his coaches, like jj.
They could have had Larry but noooooo...
Is anybody left in the building...other than the players?Next head coach = Andre Tourigny.
Actually, they'll probably call up Sylvain Lefebvre to finish the season.
Is there anything left to say?
Big snow storm here.
HNIC: "They might as well play their kids now."Yeah right. I look forward to seeing DD, RBQ and Gio finishing out the game.
Fuck, leaf tie it, bob cold shits himself.
The leaf tie it. Fucking fantastic.
So the leaf jump ahead of the Habs with at least a point. TSNCBC will have a celebration.
Bonus, Pylon Dion on for the winning goal.
Well, the Jets win. That feels....good? Is that the word? It's been so long.
I did not watch the Habs game. I have only watched them play once in the last two weeks, the leaf game. This is deliberate. Anyone remember the teams of circa 1998-2001? Back then Reggie Houle was signing AHLer's including PJ Stuck to fill out his roster, complete shit in the system, no 1st round pick in '99. This feels a lot like that and I ain't going through that again. I'd rather watch other teams with some compete level and legitimate top 6 forwards.Good luck Marc Bergevin, you've got a lot of work ahead of you.
moe, your header was on the money. Molson's house of cards is crashing down. The next few days should be interesting.
Same here the M. Until something changes i won't be going out of my way to watch this version of my beloved Habs. Glad i missed this one.
Not sure when this is from, but a bit of a lighthearted cute video of the timbits at the Bell Centre. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=b0a_1390586143
I PVR'd the game until my son and I finished dinner, sorry I couldn't supply the juce, though I did sneak one in. Maybe that's why they lost? Could there be another reason? What the hell is going on?We all know they can play better than the team that's been 'showing' up the past few weeks. I can only think it's because of coachless. Can someone help tell me what the hell is going on?
I think the "politics" of hockey has divided the room. At the beginning of the year, 27, 81 and 11 were having success and 67 and 51 were not, so in order to get their "pet project" going they put 11 with them. Bournival was having success with 14 and 21 but in order to get Briere going they benched Bournival. Markov and Subban were being hailed as the best defensive pairing in the league....so they were separated. Who made all those decisions?I would say the players have had enough despite what Gorges saying about "not quitting on anybody." I've seen this song and dance before.
I watched the start of the LA/Anaheim game last night, wow, talk about the Land of the Giants! Anaheim is fucking huge! When the playoffs start I may have to adopt them as my back-up team, I'd love to see Saku hoist the Cup before he retires. You with me Moey?
I took the liberty of hoisting this particular comment from HI/O, all credit to one Maritime Ronn who seems to know his stuff. He may be wrong because who really knows what goes on in the dressing room behind closed doors, but it makes as much sense as anything. This is for the most loyal Hab fan I know of on the internet, juce:Louis Leblanc:No – he will never be confused with Sid Crosby, yet here is a 23 year old-1st Round draft pick and pending RFA this summer, quite possibly getting one last final look before cutting ties, being traded (good luck) or not even being tendered a qualifying offer and becoming a UFAHas that “Look” been one of fairness…when compared to others?Since being called up for 3 games, he has played 7:49, 6:01, 6:20.A really great way to find out, right? …and it’s not as if he is trying to take minutes from Crosby-Malkin-Neal-Kunitz at this point.These rookie call ups ALL play ‘scared-afraid’ knowing that if any little error transpires, they will be pinned to the bench or given a bus ticket.Easy proof.Leblanc gets 3 good shifts in the 1st period (one of the few to be seen in the blue paint) before being called for a penalty in the O zone where it was clear the defender was holding his stick at the 14:34 mark.So how does the present coach react?He gives him 1 more shift in the 1st period – and 2 shifts in the 2nd period at the 9 and 18 minute mark.3rd period? Throws him to the dogs, with 3 shifts when the game is already over.Fair? Then explain this.Then you have 1 of the coach’s pets playing center that takes a lazy hooking penalty at 4:05 of the 2nd period when the Habs are down 2-0.He gets right back on the ice, tries a half hearted uncaring stick check in the D zone and misses… that DIRECTLY leads to the 3rd Washington goal and game over.His pet reward? 10 more shifts for the rest of the game including 1:18 of PP time.…and you want to know why this team is unhappy?
Thank you, Maritimer.
