  1. So has the counter been reset to one again then? Moeman your continued efforts in the face of such adverse, piss poor hockey is commendable...alrhough to give them their dues, last night they played alright. Inigo let them down. Which brings me to another question...tfs is the No. 1 goalie, so he should have played last night and if he was tired he could have rested tonight. Besides after tonight they have a fucking week off so he has plenty of time to rest. Another examples of foxhole coaching at its finest!

    This is the broons...so just fucking win!

  6. the Maritimer11:56 AM

    So, I was out really late last night and recorded everything. Got up about 8:00am, showered, grabbed a bowl of cereal, fired up the Keurig and sat down to watch. Pre-game, usual leaf lovefest, some brief moments for 'Turds and Habs. That's OK we're used to it.

    Watched the game, meh, about what I expected another therrien clusterfuck against a superior western team. Whatever.

    Here's the fun part, I also recorded the Edmonton game because I have McDavid in my keeper league and I like to see him once in a while. First intermission, a debate between the great Adam Oates and smug, leaf-loving Friedman about whether McLellan should have started Cam Talbot or the backup goalie because Talbot was late returning from the bye week, missed flight or somesuch. Anyway, Oates took it to friedman, some of these players who actually played in the NHL must look at a fucking dweeb like friedman and laugh to themselves. These media fools think they actually know what NHL coaches should or shouldn't do. Oates should just punch him in the face, off camera of course.

    I'll take a pass tonight, I expect another regulation loss. I read that Montreal has only won 6 games in regulation in the last 25 games. Wow, that's reminiscent of last season, foxhole territory.

    Finally, I leave you with this little gem which rings so true, with me anyway:

    "The team’s play is indicative of an illness that will plague this franchise until Molson cleans house. As sad as this sounds, this team is DOA until the entire organization realizes that it is being propped up by a history they have literally no attachment with and they need to start making their own."

    Maritimer out.

  9. Looks like we're about to get pounded by a couple more storms over the next few days on the east coast too. Probably a snow day tomorrow as they're actually calling for a blizzard.

    Hey The M if you check back in, I was flipping around and Honeysuckle Rose was on TMC. The great Willy Nelson was wearing a Moosehead Beer t-shirt. Classic Moose green shirt.

    We've got the ol' conundrum of if we win, AF stays. If we lose, maybe he's fired but then the reality of the fact that this team isn't good enough sets in. All I know is that if BBB does make a move, it needs to be for the future too, not just a rental a la Vanek. Somebody that is signed or has a good chance of resigning. And that somebody need to fill one of the holes that is making this team easy to beat.

    TWD back on tonight, so I'll watch until then. But a win tonight gives me the annual Habs vs Broons regular season victory. Ongoing bet with an old friend for 10 years now and I think he's bought me lunch 7 of 9 years so far.

    So GYMFHG!!!

    Hey guys and gals I'm back. @Saint Paddy thanks for the heads up about Willy and the Moosehead t-shirt. He must have picked it up when he did a concert here years ago.

    @moe, my cereal of choice this am was Sally's Honey cluster and oats with some cut-up strawberries using skim milk.

    OK, I have to get caught up on Agents of SHIELD and Timeless. Good luck to those watching the Habs game.

    1. Here's my dirtt secret! after six seasons of TWD, after 2 eps of the current season, I gave up. I HATE giving up on TV shows. I almost never do it. I always stick it out to the end. But I just got fed up. Every week this season (well the 2 I watched) I just kept asking myself what's the point. And I was really no longer enjoying it at all. So I deleted my recording schedule, and never looked back

      I also admit that the crappiness of FearTWD may have had something to do with it, I hated that show and it was a waste of my time even more

    Hey kiddies, just checking in and it doesn't sound good for the fabled Habs. Or, maybe it does if it #firetherrien happens.

    What I think happened is Houle and Tremblay extinguished the torch, the Goat and Chokula hid it in a broom closet and empty and BBB found it and buried it.

    I am almost done with TWD. I fast forward through most of the episodes now and yeah this is probably my last season. BTW, for those interested, I checked out the latest comic book version and Negan is still alive, so I don't think Rick or Darryl will get their revenge.

    I may have to check out the Expanse.
