Thanks for a very hot Sf on a very hot Friday. Wheat Kings and everthing.
I wrote over at the FAceBook thing;I was discussing last night’s spectacular show with my great friends Bill and James and TBird. BC is bang on on all counts that there was a lot of emotion and even more was displayed on stage. The affinity the boys have is based on pure friendship. This was my 12th or 13th show. From a small club in Halifax, to the summer ARAs (Another Roadside Attraction), to a San Fran gig with a bunch of fellow Canadians, to many Ottawa-based shows, this one was truly the best. Of course the surrounding circumstances provided us with an even more special show but The Hip never, ever, disappoints. The setlist list (see below) and the encores and the playful updated rocking renditions of classics were superb. Gordie, in his own genial lyrical words, let it all out. Come on, shake that thing! So did the crowd. The Hip made sure to mention what Ottawa means to them. We gave it back in spades. Being there with my beautiful daughter Véro (a Hip fan since the age one 1, my favourite girl in the whole world BTW), surrounded by fanatics and lots of parent+children combos, proved to me that The Hip is generationally transcendent. Pure Canadiana but also pure honest feelings, deep-rooted, about what being Canadian truly is. Gordie reflects our good nature. He told us more than once to ‘take care of each other’. A true once in a lifetime experience, shared with a cherished band and an exquisite artist and human being in Gordie. Seeing Gordie scream lyrics and then really scream in between the lyrics was proof enough for me that the man appreciates life to its fullest. He has taught us many things about ourselves and our country and being part of a better world. The smirks, the goofiness, the swearing, the sheer joy of performing leaves a huge imprint on those of us that love The Tragically Hip. Its difficult not to want to keep saying more but I’ll end with saying that I have a new appreciation for my long time faves like Grace, Too, Poets and Ahead by a Century. The latter had me in tears. Thanks Gordie, thank you The Tragically Hip. Peace.Setlist on iTunes; https://itunes.apple.com/ca/playlist/ottawa-2016-tragically-hip/idpl.1708140a87a541298464abbe9e1da541
what a set list. sounds amazing. I'm jealous
Hope can take in tomorrow's finale 29.
Thanks for sharing. Best Canadian band ever. Rush? No thanks, as moe says, the Hip exudes Canadiana.
Glad you enjoyed the concert, moe.http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/the-tragically-hip-10-essential-songs-w435104
Congrats to Captain Sinclair and her teammates on winning back to back bronze medals.
Awesome. Lots of medals in the last few hours. Congrats to all our great athletes.
The FHFun thing about the cat in glasses .gif is the middle cat is just noticing Moey
Two fifty for a hi-ballAnd buck and a half for a beerHappy hour, happy hourHappy hour is hereDrink! Bon vendredi sexxxy mes ami(e)s!
For those who aren't Hip, the dude in pic 13 is your glorious leader. You can tell by the hat
Heh. My hipster cap needs a feather.
Looking good sir! Hope your concussion symptoms are a thing of the past.
Thanks St. Pad. Pretty much symptom free.
I will eat everything pic 10 is offering
I'm still angry at that race walking result. What a load of crap. I watCHed it live, we were robbedI care too much about the Olympics GYF4X100G!!!!
The IOC is corrupt, watching the pressers defending Lochte 'he's young, he was just having fun, move on', Patrick Hickey scalping tickets etc... kind of reminded me of Bettman, Jacobs et al.
Indeed, the IOC may be the most corrupt sporting organization on earth now that FIFA has been exposed. I don't give a crap about ticket scalping, that happens everywhere. I don't even care who is doping or whatever, cheating has been going on forever and I would bet my last dollar the US has a doping program the same as the Russians, they just haven't been caught. What I hate about the Olympics is the judging which is corrupt beyond measure. I'll be glad when this stuff is off the TV, it just fucks up my viewing habits for two weeks.
I just like it for comparison purposes. For example Usan bolt needs 41 strides to go 100m, DDD needs 400 to go 200 feet,
I actually saw a documentary about Sing and this research a few years ago.http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/sting-brain-scans-1.3726947
In other news Vesey passes on the leaf. Rangers win. Cryder will teach him the fine art of accidently over and over again running goalies without punishment.
If the NHL where a playstation game, we won the PFK trade by a large margin. For 2017 PFK is listed as 9th and weber tied for first. Were aussoume.
The only person who "won" the trade is Fuckface. He got rid of "un individualiste."Hope I spelled that correctly.
Yep, AF is the big winner, who will one day get his contract paid out when the fools finally see how useless he was all along. He'll sit back with his feet up watching hockey from his living room, all the while smirking and smoking his stinky cigars and knowing that he got what he wanted ever since he took the panel on AC and laughing at every Habs fan who never wanted him back behind the bench.
dirty job someone (who speaks French) has to do it
Congrats to the 4x100 guys! Great race and they will compete for gold in Tokyo with a Boltless Jamaican team. And congrats to the Japanese team on the silver. Quite a shocker. 2 more metres and DeWeed had them. And finally fuck you Merica. Blame Trump for your DQ.Start of vacation. Beautiful sunny day. Pork tenderloin on the bbq. Cold beer in the fridge. Life ain't so bad.OK, good bye Olympics. Is it October yet? C'mon hockey.
Sunny days always beats something in your refigerator will kill you dead.

oh yeah, that was not oak, that was fossilised wood. Exterminate, Exterminate Exterminate the whole bunch and start over with high school kids.
The Hip who I only discovered ten years ago, not to say I did not know about them. Are the evolution of Canadian flavored rock that may have started with Stompin Tom and moved through the Hawk to to the Hip. There are other bands in there that are in no ways bland, like Rush and the Guess Who. But when it comes to Maple Syrup they are the viscosity of blood in Canada.
Now that summer is in its Autuum and we have had a spring of discontent, I want to welcome my team back from the frozen summer to the fire on ice that awaits them. I am willing to give everyone a second chance in the case of some a thrird or fourth. However we are now all in this great journey toghether lets row the same way at least till the end of September (till Semptemper comes)
ron mclame is a POS. Nothing like inserting yourself in The Hip concert broadcast. Fucking arrogant , self-inflated POS.
I agree the only thing he brings to the table is the ablity to suck Cherry wood
moeman - thanks for the short ribs recipe last week. Made it tonight. Delicious.
U R welcome my FHFriend.
The Hip concert in Kingston has cranked up way beyond 11.
Final concert % viewership hits Canada vs Russia Territory. Harper most idendifyed forever with Nickelback, Jt with the Hip, draw your own conclusions.
CHe arrives today after a tough summer of vigours pole dancing observation.
29 would call it Hip Whaleing. Although he would propably spell it better man.
HIO has the new dressing room seating. Interesting is that CHe has an open seat beside him, obviously a stripper in the dressing room was part of his package. DDD also has an open seat for his mommy.
CHarger on a PTO with the wretched leaf. As much as I admire the guy I hope he doesn't make it. I wouldn't want him soiled by that shit organization.
CHe will hit AF with a stick and CHarger with a fist.
I am really pumped for this season because I know AF has learned his lesson. We will not see DDD on the PP. BBQ and Vodkov will not play to gether just so AF can prove being a top puck moving d man is not important. Players will be encouraged to carry the puck over the blue line and make a play. What a great year this is going to be.
Sounds like some kind of fantasy. Doing some recreational substances lately Steve?
I hope that everyone is well and recovering from the Hip on Saturday night. I lost my father to a cancerous brain tumour back in 2001 so I have so much admiration for Gord Downie. I was very emotional watching it from over here. TBH I had lost touch with the Hip in recent years - as they don't sell in the UK but I have their first 4 albums which I play all the time. The Hip and Tom Cochrane formed a huge part of my playlist in the latter part of the 80's and early 90's.One note on that dressing room re-design - I hear they have removed the "No Excuses" slogan from the dressing room wall - I guess reality has finally hit home!
I discovered the Hip in the late '80's. I have the first 5 albums and the first song that caught my ears was "Last American Exit". I always considered the Guess Who as Canada's No. 1 band until these guys came along with April Wine second. Gord Downie and the rest of the guys are lyrical geniuses and Rob Baker is an amazing guitarist. That concert will be on my PVR until it crashes. Maybe they will release a blu-ray of it.
Blue Rodeo is up there on my list and I consider Aracde Fire to be a Canadian Band. Yes the no excuses sign has been replaced by lets help DDD get 30 min.
It's being replaced with a poster of Steve Martin saying: "Excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse Meeeeeeeeeeeee!!"
Great Hip comments.Also, SinM, that is FHFucking FHFunny!
This just in, Che will be skipping traditional training camp. Instead he will be embarking on a motorcyle journey to Terra Del Dufago. A voyage of south american stripper discovery.
All AF and MB did last season was make excuses (' with a healthy Price, we're not sitting here today' among them.) and the sign was mentioned by the media with every excuse they made. They were publicly shamed so they had to take it down.
Cracks already showing in the AF Che tango. Che quoted " a Montreal Canadiens team that put defence first is like a stripper who does not take off her clothes"
690 asked for suggestions to replace the 'no excuses' sign and here are what some fans came up with on twitter.https://twitter.com/TSN690MTL/status/767924353614942208
I think my favourite was "Blame P.K."
Yeah, I liked that one too.
For the love of God extend CHe and put DDD on a PTO
Steve, forget about DD, he is on a short leash with empty, his days of snowplowing the ice are just about over, with the Habs anyway. Be patient. Eklund says DD is being traded to Calgary for Johnny Hockey... :-/
Last night CHe scored a Ron Jeremy Hat trick and training camp has not even started.
MB now has more options to make the team 'harder to play against' with the availability of Ryspayev, banned for life in the KHL, and Raffi Torres will retire if he isn't signed.

Rascims you can call kindergaten on facebookits juvinile
I have put certian paramteters in preferece and you will see them on parade in late september and maybe more in October. However do not be deliquent in yoor paraise of the CH. We will be tiuphetthis year, and there will be a parade
its a white tuplip day with Patrone as activator
So do not hate me cause I love the Patron. At least I said something about CHocky.
CHarger answers the question, how much would I have to pay you to play for the leaf. I would do league minium at any team except Edmonton.
Marinaro on another PK slag-fest and reasons why he thinks Team Canada didn't select him (other than the left-right thing), citing among other things, that he didn't support MT when he asked by the media that MB was bringing MT back this season when he replied that hockey is a result-driven business and he hadn't heard MB's presser so we'll see where he goes with that, and maybe Bab$ feels he could be thrown under the bus too or when MB blamed PK for an individualistic play that cost the game out by a someone in management and on and on.His co-host Jay Farrar says he knows for a fact why he wasn't. He was told flat-out by someone on Team Canada's management who he said he will not name "I fucking hate that guy".
...and "I don't think as a management team, we did enough to make ourselves a playoff team without Price" but he leaves out that he also said it falls on everyone as a team.
He also said that PK was cleared by doctors but 'refused' to play after his injury, why in the world would it be the Habs not letting play? I think maybe since they knew they wanted to trade him, they didn't want to risk him getting injured.
OK, I'll stop now.
Crosby captains Team Canada, Toews and Weber as A's.
BBQ says to CHe put a stripper on the barbie, or she should dress like a barbie my French is not that good,
Marinaro is at it again, slagging PK.
There is part of Marinaro that I am ok with but his incessant hatred for PK was always a problem for me. I could never put my finger on what it was - his tone often struck me as someone who was jealous. Another part of me heard someone who hated a toronto boy playing in Momtreal - once a leaf always a leaf - is how I sometimes read his emotions...but jealousy was often how I felt he came across. he hated that he was bigger than he was (personality) and that he got a shit load of money out of the Habs...so on those occassions - and like this time today - he's a dick. Move on!
He asked a guy who covers the Blues who was better PK or Boumeister, he couldn't have liked it when he said PK.It just pisses me off that he keeps doing this when some fans are still a little raw over PK getting screwed over by "T’es rien"
