The problem is all inside your head he said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle to stop some pucks
There must be fifty ways to stop those goddam fucks
He said it's really not my habit to intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself at the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways to stop some pucks
Fifty ways to stop those goddam fucks
You just act real scary, Carey
Make a new plan, man
You don't need to be nice, Price
Just get yourself free
Don’t make a mess, TFS 
You can always discuss less
Don’t drop to your knee, see
And get yourself free.
He said it grieves me so
To see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do
To make you smile again
I said I appreciate that
And would you please explain
About the fifty ways

The rest is private."

      I don't know who to cheer for. Go Pack I guess and of course I always hope the Pats lose. Sorry, Saint Paddy, it's just not in my in my DNA to cheer for a team from Boston.

      I'm glad to see gCHuk and SSR are back. Just need Vodkov and kidG back now. Get well soon! Also, I hope Price gets his mojo back soon.

  5. Had planned, a few days ago, to make two soups. Made one, roasted curry cauliflower and it s really good.

    Made the second one today, cabbage roll soup. Threw in a chill pepper for some zing. Only used half a head of cabbage and some homemade chicken broth.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OK, the Shaw goalie interference was indeed. Since then I've been tuning in during commercial breaks from football. Did I miss something about his 5 minute interference and game misconduct? The hit looked like a general interference penalty - no head contact. And finally, just tuned back in during that last fiasco. What a fucking laugh! Can they be any more fucking obvious? missed gCHuk's goal but good to see him back.

    7-0 Pats on the way to a 38-13 win.

    1. They probably didn't like that he said refs aren't protecting the goalies and not calling goalie inteference. These guys took it personally...and they should.

  33. It has been a pretty entertaining game but the refs have severely fucked us tonight. Shaw was pushed into the goalie and the was dragged out of his crease. No way Shaw should have had the misconduct either. Fucking Bush league Buttman strikes again. Habs need to pick it up and the needs to be sharp. The third is going to be interesting. Now go you fucking Habs go!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Shaw did lean in such a way that he would fall right into Raanta, there seemed to be a bit of a delay between the light push and him falling on Raanta. I'll agree with the interference on that one.

      Delete
  34. The excuse is that contact is made outside of the crease, which is total BS, look at this and you see that the Rag's foot goes INTO the crease behind TFS's pad THEN drags him out.

  70. Brian Wilde's synopsis:

    Habs story tonite: resilience

    - Shaw goal called back
    - Shaw kicked out. 11 Fs
    - Price dragged to Moose Jaw. Still a goal

    They persevered.

  80. Thought I'd check the SFU sites to find some articles of outrage at the terrible non goaltender interference goal from last night. Nada. Nothing. Zilch. In fact the video packs of the game doesn't even show the 'goal' or mention it. There'd be a national inquiry if that had been the Sens doing it to Curtis McIlhanney- "the best waiver pickup I've ever seen - Old Crotch"

    "Not for the first time, a call that clearly came from Toronto went against the Canadiens for no discernible reason except bias on the part of those making the decisions. This is a powder keg waiting to blow. One of these days, an improving Leafs team is going to clash with the Canadiens in the playoffs. With the NHL’s profoundly biased replay structure, a critical call is going to go against Montreal and we’re going to have Richard Riot: The Motion Picture."

      That call was so blatantly biased, I think the majority of Habs fans laughed it off as sheer incompetence by the refs, the morons in the "Control room" and the NHL in general. Good thing the Habs won though or there would be a different conversation going on. The Montreal team (Geoff Molson) should take the fine and call out the biased fucks on this anyway.
