in my cheap ploy to get a link from Deadspin (it worked!), I totally didnt say anything about, you know, the game. Hamr looks good to go (thank god), Kovy's ankle is hurting but he should play, and Gorges has the flu but is supposed to play too. TFS starts

and yours truly is going! BOOOOOOO [chugs beer], ok im warmed up

"You know, for a blog that objectifies women, FHF sure has alot of women readers and friends. Discuss."

A. You guys are hilarious!

B. Men who talk that much usually are putting up a front. The real weasels are the men who act respectful to the point of patronizing, but run around behind your back until you have no choice but to channel Lorena Bobbit.

(Besides, actions speak louder than words, and you don't treat the female visitors like airheaded bimbos, despite all the stripper pictures.) :)

Good luck, to you, your team, and your collective livers.

Hmmm...Blatant ass kissing equals the keys to the Gawker kingdom. Noted.

All kidding aside, well earned and long deserved props gentlemen. If it didn't mean the almost certain axing of my DS commenter privileges, I'd be pimping FHF to the rafters. Hell, I might anyway.

HabsFan29 said...

SLC don't tempt Iracane on our behalf. we wont have you ending up the subject of a Comment Ombudsman

kristin said...

aw crap...didn't realize I was gonna get linked today! Don't be thrown off by the Devils theme on my blog and profile pic, I'm just experimenting with something over there!

HabsFan29 said...

Kristin I am DYING with ironic laughter right now

kristin said...

HF29, I'm here to amuse!

Nadine said...

Oh, Lord! Kristin, if you're going to bail and be a "test fan" for another team at least go outside the division, preferably the Conference as well.

kristin said...

Nah, Nadine, that'd be too easy! I don't hate any other teams!

HabsFan29 said...

k kids, the beers have have been chugged, the tix are in hand, im off to watch the collapsing craptacular!

be excellent to each other

Nadine said...

Have fun booing. I'll be doing some from Philly tonight and tomorrow!

Habsfan10 said...

Jesus, someone tell me HF29 had the good sense to bring HF29Mom to the game ... the man's a jinx without her!

Okay, kids, here's to a good one that ends without any Habs blood being shed. I'll be back and forth ... stupid stone age set-up with the computer and tv's in different rooms!

msevigny said...

It's a roller-coaster of emotion so far. The Habs game is being aired in Western Canada, hooray! Cassie Campbell is on the Montreal broadcast team, argh! Saku takes a penalty, double argh! Cassie Campbell can't pronounce "Koivu"... huh?!

Nadine said...

Whew. So, that was fun, right?

Flying Toaster said...

Does anyone else need a new pacemaker?

HabsFan33 said...

We kill of a 2 min 5 on 3 and their is silence on the thread??? Rise people!

Nadine said...

Okay, how 'bout this: Shit!

PPP said...

That was an impressive kill by the Habs. Too bad the refs didn't let Downie fight Komisarek.

HabsFan33 said...

Yup Nadine that sums it up.

Nadine said...

Jonesy, you big dumb over-grown puppy! Jeeeeeeeez!!!!

HabsFan33 said...

Ya, that sums it up too.

HabsFan33 said...

Is it me or have the fans gone soft on Briere as the game has worn on?

Nadine said...

HF33: I think you've realized that he's a -20 and no way does your team need that slacker mojo.

HabsFan33 said...

I know! 4th worst in the league!

HabsFan33 said...

wow, that may have warranted a replay.

Nadine said...

You've got to be kidding me!

Nadine said...

Who paid off the ref? That puck was still live!

Anonymous said...

woo hoo!

Nadine said...

Right. Good game guys. I'll be away tomorrow watching the game at the Wachovia Center.

msevigny said...

Well, aside from the lousy reffing (I didn't catch who it was, but I'm guessing the head ref's name rhymed with "Smagoo") it was a pretty tense game. It's nice to see the Habs protect a lead AND preserve a shutout, although it would be nice if they maybe didn't give up so many shots, and if they get multiple open-net chances next game, maybe they could put one of them in, possibly.

It's nothing to sneeze at, however. Now, it's off to Vancouver-Edmonton to see who in the Northwest can choke harder.

Habsfan10 said...

Whew. Couldn't leave the tv to chat at all ... I hate those types of games right up until the final siren.

Tomorrow in Philly is going to be nuts ... Price getting his third start in a row?

HabsFan33 said...

Nadine: lucky! Enjoy the "Strikes Back" leg of this series.

Habsfan10 said...

Vegas just took the odds on a "Price is right", "Priceless" or other lame-ass Price headline tomorrow off the board. All hail TFS!

baroque said...

Ottawa lost in regulation to New Jersey. :)

HabsFan29 said...

Just home from the game and post-game drinking. woohoo!

Overall, not bad. Basically, score a goal and hang on for dear life. let TFS take care of business. a W is a W is a W...

HabsFan29 said...

holy shit baroque you're right. top of the East clusterfuck!
