I almost missed it to watch PBS

HabsFan33 is gonna be along soon with your full game review. I just wanted to share this anecdote about the miracle comeback last night.

So it was the second intermission. I wasn't really paying attention to the game anymore. Sure, the comeback had started during the second, but I really didn't think it was possible. I know this team (or thought I did) - they don't have the character to come back from 5-0 down. Especially to the fucking Rangers. Especially when we're not getting clutch goaltending. We're fucked I thought. So I changed the channel.

I was flicking around the channels, looking for something else to watch. All that was on was American Idol. I prefer root canal to American Idol. Then I thought to myself, I know, I'll watch the PBS Nova about the genius apes I had just PVR'd. My PVR captures all PBS documentary series - Nova and American Experience are my favourites. And I like strippers. I'm a renaissance man.

So I settle on the couch, get ready to fire up the PVR. But I say to myself, let me just check the score, see how many more the Rangers have scored. I turn over to RDS just in time to see the 3rd goal. Before I could say to myself, "hmm, maybe we can do this," we had scored the fourth goal. I obviously watched the rest.

I can watch Nova tonight.

Here's the long-form highlights if you want to relive it. I know I do.

Well, you're lucky, I actually left when we were down 5. My friend (with whom I was watching the game in a bar) only called me when Koivu scored. To make me pay for my unfaithfulness. Bastard. Its on my blog.

Btw, don't you share season tkts with 33 ?

I'm looking at a bunch of Rangers blogs who all whine at some point that there should have been a penalty when fans threw stuff on the ice. Only one of them was intelligent to look up the actual rule which states that the refs must give a warning after the first incident and if it happens again there will be a penalty.

Was the special any good though? It seems like an interesting idea. I watched Happy Feet last night after we went 5-0 down. A surprisingly fun movie!

You should do a post on that:

"What were you doing to try to forget the Habs as they were coming back from 5-0?"

"What were you doing to try to forget the Habs as they were coming back from 5-0?"

Drinking heavily.

And what were you doing when they won 6-5?

Drinking heavily.

Loser Domi said...

And what were you doing before the game?

I wasn't, but I'm sure other people were drinking heavily

@ 29 "33 and I share, but he gets 10 pairs, i get 10 pairs, 2 other people get 10 pairs"

@montréaliste - "HabsFan29 and HabsFan33 share season tickets (in the whites, they're not rich lawyers) so they can see the Habs suck in the flesh."

From the home page ;-)

mListe we're cheap alright. we spend all our money on strippers 'n blow. that's what lawyers buy with their $400 an hour

Montréaliste1 said...

In other words you invest in hockey tickets, to have a purpose to go to the strippers afterwards.

I bet you're not even hockey fans, just pervs !

I share season tickets in the blue section with my brothers. Well share is a strong word. My parents still pay them...

IM HAVE A STUDENT INCOME ALLRIGHT DON'T LAUGH !
