  3. There is going to be some mens hockey at these olympics
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1948895-olympic-hockey-schedule-2014-complete-listing-for-mens-tournament
    First game Feb 13 at 12PM against the powerhouse Norwegian contingent. Boasting such fearsome players as Iver Narwhale killer, and Henning Humpback Humper. Careful boys, if you spear a Norwegian you may save a whale, but you will likely be disqualified from further play.

  19. Meanwhile back at home, the same people who wanted DDD in Hamilton, now want to trade Vodkov and Lego. I have turned around on DDD. He is what he is, and he is French Canadian, so I keep him. Lego, still has an upside keep him. Vodkov is a big decision. Mark Streit is the benchmark, and I do not want to pay that for Vodkov. So unless he takes a homer simpson discount, bye bye my friend.

      The argument over Lego is he has a low hockey IQ. Fuck he was a genius at the first of the year playing with KidG and gCHuk. But, since management was adamant they were going to give homeboy DDD EVERY opportunity to succeed, they broke that line up to Lego's detriment. So it goes, politics will win every time. If the Habs make the playoffs an undrafted 5-5 center will lead them exactly nowhere but political correctness will have been served.

      Markov is staying and will get that Mark Streit deal plus a little more.

    2. given the way we are headed I predict that by 2026 sex will be an Olympic sport. I mean why not, it has a skill level greater than figure skating, and except for Orangeman, everyone in the audience is participating.

      I only used Orangeman because it rhymed. We really live in a Star Trek universe. All kinds of things go on. Lets just say in Korea they do not deny biology.

  25. Going to try and stay positive in the Olympic Games Day threads but what the fuck is with all the Carey Price hate in almost all of the CotU-based Team Canada articles? You'd think Stevie Y. and his team chose Racicot. Not surprising that almost all of the moronic comments are gleefully signed by some fucking leaf fan. Sick fucks. (I won't even bother with the PFK slags).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, maybe someone is/was listening. I emailed the cockroaches and asked that they do a better job of moderating their Olympic article comments, That the hate for Price, Luongo and Subban, was simply unCanadian and weirdly heavily coming from named leaf fans and should be put in perspective of their T&Cs. They shutdown their comments less than a ½ hour later.

      Delete
    2. Nice, if no one speaks up, nothing happens.
      They're at a loss because the media hype for the leaf doesn't work outside of the gta and the only way to assuage their pain is by inflicting it on others.
      Go Canada Go!!

    3. They also hurt because PFK has a Norris and no leaf has ever had one, so they allow the hate en masse.

      Sheer unadulterated jealousy. Toronto media have had nothing good to report on their teams for so long they focus on tearing somebody else down. It's all they got. Even today the Three Stooges at Noon say Luongo gets the first start out of loyalty for 2010 and PK and Hamhuis are the 7 and 8 D-men. That's all in their tiny minds.

    Instead, CBC leads this morning with:
    PK Subban Will Have to Earn His Time on the Ice
    Montreal Canadiens defenceman is making his Olympic debut with Team Canada, but he may not see much playing time.

    I can't tell if they're angry that no leaf was near good enough to be the water boy on Team Canada, or that PK made the team. I guess both.
