 As we wait...and wait...and wait to play Buffalo, thought I'd take moe's advice and post a request. Then I thought parody. When I think Buffalo, I think Springfield. But I can't do anything anti-Buffalo being they're sadsacks with Gio and Gorges, so, for what it's worth, a mid(ish) week break...:

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a mediot with a mic over there
Telling me the Habs got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Hughson's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
The Habs are all right and the mediots are wrong
Habs fans speaking' their minds
Getting so much CotU resistance from behind

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look – McLean’s going down

What a field day for the leaf
A thousand people saluting in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "plan the parade"

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Chery's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when Lucic is always afraid
Step out of line, Weise’ll come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Kypreos' going down

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Friedman's going down

We better stop
Now, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Hrudey's going down

We better stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Sportsnet's going down (on the leaf)

  2. Stupendous SF, moeman. What is sexier than Richard Gere? Is there really a hockey game tonight? Can I have some of that mushroom soup for lunCH?

  3. Hey moeman, thanks for publishing me! Awesome SF as always. That water reflection pic is outstanding. Lots of nippage 2 shots below...don't tell the Blogger police.

    No mention on any of the leafsites how the Habs are still in first despite not having played for 5 days. Go on, keep your fucking blinders on - it'll make it all the sweeter in the end.

    You know though, I was looking at the standings and I think I'd actually be OK with the leafs and sens making the playoffs if it meant the broons, philthy and rags missing.

    Anyway GYMFHG!

    Is Tang playing tonight?
    Or do we call him Tank?
    Or Poon?

    1. Watching TV last night, they said historically, if a team is not in a playoff position by this time of year, they usually don't make it. The current position for Habs, leaf and Sens are:

      Points Record needed to make the playoffs:

      Habs 33 30-29-0
      leaf 25 34-26-0
      sens 24 35-26-0

      As of today, even if the Habs have a 500 record, they'll make the post-season, though I see them doing muCH better than that.
      broons and leaf hold the 1st & 2nd wildcard spot and the sens are 1pt behind the leaf with a game in hand so that could change.

      Go Habs Go!

    2. Of course, LA did make it on the last day grabbing the 8th spot and then winning the Cup.

  5. Happy Black SF everybody! Looks like this discount trend has really caught on in the UK - we've had fights in Asda (UK speak for Walmart) that started early in the morning. Sad lot!!

    Great SF Moeman - as usual nice ones all round! Loves me some Sigourney too! And who is that coming out of the water just after the cat pic? Seriously SF!

    I am honoured to be any sort of inspiration for your blogging work. Thank you.

    So b2b against the Sabres eh!!?? Let's hope the boys are sharp tonight. I say, play TFS tonight - if they win - play him again tomorrow - it's not like he'll be tired - No disrespect to Toker but TFS playing 1 game a week is not a recipe for continued success. He needs to get back into the Venina Zone.

    Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!

  9. , Eric Tangradi will take part in his first game as a member of the Canadiens on Friday night. Penciling Tangradi in alongside Manny Malhotra and Dale Weise, Michel Therrien has made his expectations very clear when it comes to the 25-year-old winger.

    “He’s a big guy and I’m expecting him to play like it. I want him to skate. He has an opportunity to come back to the National Hockey League and I think he’s a young man who has sort of been searching for his place and his role the last few years,” said Therrien, whose new forward already has 136 career NHL games under his belt coming into Friday’s tilt. “We just want him to be himself and make his presence felt on the ice.”

    - Ready to make his Canadiens debut on road ice, Tangradi is looking forward to keeping things simple in Buffalo, hoping to help bolster a lineup that already owns one of the best records in the NHL this season.

    “Winning teams need to have balance and depth on all four lines, so if I can come in here and provide some sort of spark or try to do something to create momentum and help the team win, that would be great,” explained the Philadelphia native, who has previously suited up for the Penguins and Jets. “Manny plays a very simple game and a very predictable game. Coming into a new lineup, when you have a guy who plays the middle position the right way, you can feed off of him and know he’s going to be in the right spots at the right time. It takes some weight off me coming in and it allows me to do the things I’m good at and not try to force myself to make plays that might be a stretch.”

    ReplyDelete
  37. WTF are the refs doing now, they chased him from the penalty box, escorted him out for misconduct.

    ReplyDelete
  38. So Prust gets sent to the box for un-sportsman, probably told the ref a thing or two about that and then gets a misconduct .

  66. Wow, one fluky bounce at the end of the game...

    But to be honest the guys should have put it away by then. Loved all the talk about how MT was trying new things on the PP. Has he tried *not* playing DD for the whole 2 minutes of every PP? I would suggest starting there.

    As for (Y)'s hit, Gio is bent over and spinning. What's a defenceman to do?
