The Morning Skate Gets Political for Thursday, October 9th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of eating some delicious-yet deadly Maple Leaf meats. Again...
  • Looks like Higgins, Frankie B and Laraque (seriously, nickname? the fucking season starts tomorrow) will not make it to the ice Friday night for the opener. After being virtually injury-free last year... we can't finish this sentence;
  • Lap dance to FHF regular grrrreg for pointing out Craig Rivet has been named captain in Buffalo. Uh, he hasn't even played a game there yet;
  • TMS Mini Rant time! Thanks to Panger for clueing us in to the fact that Sarah Palin will drop the ceremonial puck at the Flyers opener. Fuck that miserable attack dog bitch and Republican stooge and Flyers owner Ed Snider. Injecting politics into the fucking season opener? If I was a Philadelphian I'd be pissed (well, more than I am). Now, normally I wouldn't have a problem with this - it seems like just another campaign stop. But fuck, that unqualified lying cunt reaps all the benefits of public events without the other side of the coin, i.e. ANSWERING ONE FUCKING QUESTION FROM A REPORTER. Oh, she's just a simple little hockey mom, dontcha know? Sorry you ignorant slut, if you want to be one 72-year old heartbeat away from being leader of the free world you'll have to answer a question or two. Maybe be able to name a fucking newspaper and not just call your opponents terrorist sympathizers. Take your Republican-cliché spewing, know-nothing, gay-hating, Troopergate-avoiding, no abortion-allowing even after rape (and make victims pay for their own evidence) lying admittedly-hot ass back to Alaska. You're a fucking embarrassment to real and intelligent hockey moms and all women everywhere. But you're a folksy MILF, so I guess that qualifies you for something. It ain't the Vice Presidency.
And we're back! Looking forward to the big finale of the preview today as Panger takes a look at TFS, Jaro, and the rest in our goalie preview. Real games tomorrow! W00t! Go Hockey!

A-fucking-men.

Pretty much completely agree, 29. Except I thought there should have been more "stupid" and "cow" in your rant.

Can't wait for the goalie preview. I hope Jaro's got something to say about it all!

PPP said...

Double A-men. I feel like I've taken crazy pills with the coverage that that pair get and the bile that they and their kool-aid drinkers spew.

moeman said...

Yup, Bible Spice needs to be sent packing back to Alaska.

Also, Tabernaque has a nice ring, non?

Habsfan10 said...

Jeez 29, can you make it more obvious that you love her? You might as well pull her pigtails and tell her friends to tell her you like her but only if she says she likes you first.

Also, haven't we called Laraque BGL for months now? First 4 tries to take away Gui! Gui! Gui! and now this?

Le P'tit Viking said...

Now that is a rant. Well done.

Loser Domi said...

I love the Palin bit. How can a woman make other women hate their ovaries that much? I don't get it.

I'm on the "Vote ideology, not gynecology" train. Who needs me to save a seat?

grrrreg said...

Palin + Flyers
Talk about the Axis of evil!

HabsFan29 said...

@LD - "Vote ideology, not gynecology train" - nice. I'll take a seat. I'll bring the meth, it'll be a party

@10 - what was BGL again? man, we're gonna get that confused with GBL!

Limerick Dude said...

Lovin the Palin bit!

@moe: Bible Spice. Nice.

I'm trying to come up with some clever Laraque names. What's BGL? Big George Laraque? nah.

Is Bunny taken?

Lumberjack? Saved for when he fells Zdeno 'the tree' Chara!
"I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok..."

I came in Sarah Palin's face at some shit motel somewhere in Idaho or maybe it was Iowa, back in the 80's.

I had this cool Camaro too, though I really wanted an El Camino fuckin cool.

But I don remember too well and I'm gettin all these phone calls now an I just wanna be alone.

I got a big dick too.

I'll keep this comment on the hockey topic, otherwise I might be here all day.

The nickname for Big George should be LaWreck as in a-one-man-wrecking-crew.

You feel?

HabsFan29 said...

@JeffHK - we need video!

@anon - LaWreck isn't bad at all

wrap around curl said...

The only nickname idea I have is La Rocky. It's a bit lame but I am illin and on cough syrup. Excuse an loopyness.

Nice rant. Minor correction, I think that it is Ed Snider, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Snider

HabsFan29 said...

@ anon - of course it's Ed Snider, lap dance to you. it's been fixed. Dan Snyder is the evil owner of the Washington Redskins. Easy to get them confused!

Consider: LaCock

Nothing like a having big scary tough black dude prowling the ice to stop oppents from being dicks

Gary "Don't call me Herman Munster" Leeman said...

No comment on Palin cuz I can't improve on that rant.
On the Laraque front I propose "Black Jacques Laraque" See this recent photo,

Don't worry about Palin in Philly: those people will boo Santa Claus. She'll be lucky to get out alive.

Flying Toaster said...

Nickname for Laraque? I got one, horribly simple but i like it: Le Rack

Anonymous said...

A possible nick name for George, how about 'Mr.Laraque'.

LaCoq

French enough with just a hint of St Hubert
