The Morning Skate for Wednesday, December 17th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of making the Pro Bowl...
So last night TMS missed the game as he was at the Bell Centre for Australian Pink Floyd (I know, I know, but they were actually quite good). After putting out our smoke on the Reggie Houle brick in Cash Grab Plaza, we noticed something interesting. When the fans were giving a standing ovation after the performance of The Wall, they started singing the Olé song. And everyone seemed to join in. Has it become the default chant of positivity in this city?

People also sang Ole Ole at the Neil Young show 2 weeks ago.

Same thing happened at the Lenny Kravitz concert in October. I thought it was great.

I've been part of the Olé chant in
Toronto after concerts, or wherever I was. The booze has done away with those memories...

I found your site by accident please HELP ME.


My hair is caught in this thresher thing in the barn and it's gonna rip my scalp off. I coulda called 911 but instead I commented on your fuckidy little post cause I always bring my powerbook to the barn with me. I love my powerbook.

Help me so I don't lose my face. Hurry please.

Hope my spelling is OK I did a spell check because that's important but this really hurts so thanks again.

That was an effing hilarious post.

Jeff you're alive!!!! We were worried about you. Well, some of us. Some of us just assumed the inevitable OD finally came and it was just totally expected.

Glad to see you're OK. Well, except for that thresher thing. Have you tried soaking your head in some water and then just sliding it out of there?

OMG, Jeff! Welcome back!
Hope that thresher thing works out. Try a razor. It'll give you a more even cut than getting scalped.
Pants!

Fuckpants. Good advice Sonia, but no razor, only a Robertson screwdriver, just out of reach.

Fucking Robertsons, when you really need the Phillips. Bugger.

Jam the screwdriver into the thresher's gears. Buys you time to think of a next move.

Cmon, keep your head in the game!

Pants!

Sorry, but we deserved every single one of those idiotic penalties last night. Well, except for Tanguay's retaliation trip on Gleason - they should have caught the initial one, but asking NHL refs to be competent is like expecting Sean Avery to read Miss Manners' syndicated column every week.

The crazy thing is that we still should have won the game. The PK was excellent for the most part, and 5-on-5 we weren't ever in trouble. Roman Hamrlik is the worst defenseman alive right now not named Patrice Brisebois or Ryan O'Byrne. The only d-man who didn't make at least one mistake that directly resulted in a goal was Josh Gorges.

As mentioned on my blog, I had the Jameson out by the second period. God, what a fucking awful game that was.

I heard the "Ole" chant at a political campaign rally in Laval in 2004.

I did the Ole chant when I had sex that one time
