- Rookie camp begins! But of course, in this town, the more important story is the Danny Brière 1st line story from la Presse. Habs Prez Pierre Boiving says the alleged Brière's agent - Bob conversation was total bullshit (here's the RDS video - even if you don't speak French you can tell Pierre is pissed). TMS agrees with commentor Stephan who said "I believe the French media to be the most unreliable source of hockey info in the world";
- The pathetic part of the la Presse business is there is no report anywhere of WTF actually happened to the rookies. Though Pat Hickey has a good feature on Carey Price;
- The "Super" Series comes to a merciful end tonight. Last chance for a Kyle Turris' mom sighting;
- And to prove hockey fans don't live in a sports bubble, THE NFL SEASON OPENS TODAY!!! WOOHOO!!! (yeah I know there was a game Thursday, but the NFL is played on SUNDAYS, dammit) Be sure to follow along at Deadspin where the KSK Gay Mafia are bringing the boobies and dick jokes all weekend. Killer funny NFL previews to get you revved up include Big Daddy Drew's Thursday Afternoon NFL Dick Joke Jamboroo and Matt Ufford's The Prelude.
K we're off to the couch for SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN hosted by none other than You're With Me, Leather. Please, no phone calls to TMS on Sundays for the next 21 weeks.
