O Ye of Little Faith - Panthers Pre-game Prayer and Open Thread

Have we crossed some sort of line yet? Believe me, there were a lot more sacrilegious (and sexy!) photos in my search

3:16 My children gather round on this Sunday morn, and let us pray for the deliverance of our heroes as they prepare to smite thine enemies. On this rarest of days, the Sunday matinee (2 PM) game, we pray that someone will think of the children and allow the mighty Canadien warriors to emerge from the darkness that was the Habs rendez-vous with the Devil(s). We pray the Panthers smiting of the flightless waterfowl by the score of 6 conversions to 1 yesterday was just a one-time miracle. We pray that the Habs victory over the Cats earlier this week was not a one-time miracle. We pray The Litter Box continues to deliver teh funneh. We pray that MAD MAX continues his dominance. We pray that our zombies will be released. We pray that God's hand will touch our wounded and heal them. HEAL THEM O LORD!!!

Let's hear your own prayers in the comments

And may God forgive me for praying for an unholy Jaro.

Wait a second, Komisarek is an all-star?

Yikes. What a joke.

gillis said...

so I watched the movie "Jerry Maguire", then I watched the Canada vs. Russia game, so now I think about how the Habs play, and now I'm depressed. Where is the heart? Mad Max is playing with it, but I don't feel it anywhere else on the team. I hope the Canadiens watched the game last night.

We pray for Kovy's hair to grow long already.

gillis said...

I'm guessing everybody so the replays of the Pens-Panthers game, when crosby jumped a guy who had his down. Apparently the guy said he wanted to fight, but I don't think Crosby understood that your supposed to give the guy the chance to stand up straight before you drop the gloves. What an idiot

Anonymous said...

Even worse than the Crosby fight? The Semin bitch-slap festival vs Marc Staal. Jesus, it's embarassing.

Panic Mode said...

What do you think of this trade:

AK46, Pleks, & Higgins for Rick Nash.

A good deal for both teams I think.

moeman said...

Our Tender, Who art in net,

Jaro be Thy Name;

Thy game has come,

Thy will be great,

On rebounds as its done by Carey.

Give us this day our daily win,

And forgive us our missed passes,

As we forgive those who Breezeby against us;

And lead us to temptation,

And deliver us from mankey sheet. Go Pants.

As it was in the 70's
Should be now, and ever shall be
Gary Bettman without end

Fuck Mats

eyebleaf said...

fezworth, you know what would be really sweet? a Vancouver/Montreal final, with Sundin scoring the game winner in overtime of game 7 to deliver the Canucks the Cup.

Baroque said...

I'm a sporadic agnostic. I don't have any prayers to offer. :)

HabsFan29 said...

well at least max pack is working

HabsFan29 said...

apparently the old "standing around defence" doesn't work

wake the fuck up boys

Baroque said...

How bad is it when even strength looks like the opposition is on a power play?

Maybe Montreal is still hungover from Saturday night partying.

HabsFan29 said...

well that was a fucking joke of a penalty

but this is a fucking joke of a performance right now

Baroque said...

Yup. Looked like he tripped over his own feet as opposed to deliberately knocking the net ajar.

Whale4ever said...

Nice period. Neither Crosby nor the Habs can stop the beast that is Brett McLean.

Whale4ever said...

You weren't kidding about that search, HF29. Good stuff.

There's a fetish for everyone, apparently.

Baroque said...

Crosby just made him angry.

I wonder if when people say he said "yes" he wanted to fight, if his actually answer was "yeah, right."

gillis said...

so i just walkeed in to see Mad Max trip over Halak and knock the net off and he gets a penalty for it. Thats bullshit. If he did do it on purpose, he must really good at acting.

Halak had no chance on that deflection. Benoit Brunet still annoys me. They show a replay that doesn't show any sign of the puck deflecting of Booths leg, yet he says that he saw it hit his leg from the replay. What a dumbass.

Oh yeah, Anon, I saw that Semin fight. It was hilarious. It was like monkey attack. He fights like my brother. Caps fans should be embarassed

Anonymous said...

Biggest reason to ban fighting in hockey - very, very few players have any clue how to actually do it.

If it was banned, they wouldn't embarrass themselves so often. :)

copyranter said...

BEEF CUBE!

moeman said...

There is a God and she loves her Habs!

Whale4ever said...

Yikes...

Whale4ever said...

Good comment, Baroque. Agree completely.

Sick game. End-to-end sweetness.

moeman said...

The refs must know that Louis Braille was born 200 years ago today.

moeman said...

Watchin' Mad Pax make his way (naturally) to the front of the net is fun.

Whale4ever said...

Gettin' sloppy on the FLA side. After Stillman took a shot with his face they haven't been the same.

Whale4ever said...

Good work by TK.

moeman said...

KTops!

There. Is. A. God!

moeman said...

4-2!

hf29 must still be on his knees, praying.

Grrrreg said...

Wow, what a period of hockey... Wooooo!

gillis said...

Now its starting to feel like the Canadiens are playing with some heart.

So is it fair to say that there are no zombiehabs today, not even Lang?

Crosby has officially taken over Laraque's job in Pittsburgh. And Semin should leave the fighting (slapping) up to Brashear

copyranter said...

what an idiotic play by Kovalev.

HabsFan29 said...

looks like i picked the wrong period to sleep through

HabsFan29 said...

WOW what a shot

Grrrreg said...

Andrei!

copyranter said...

It's fun listening to Florida color man Denis Potvin mispronounce Habs names...Lapierre-ierre...D'Agostin-O...

Rips it, scores! said...

This is one of those "last goal wins" affairs, obviously. Argh. :-(

HabsFan29 said...

FUCKITY FUCK

moeman said...

God, please smite Brunet.

Rips it, scores! said...

Nice to see that les Boys are back to playing 20 minutes a game. I missed that.

Grrrreg said...

They're playing with fire...

moeman said...

God damn!

HabsFan29 said...

fuckin nightmare

Van Hab said...

Hey!
Just got back from California in time to see the Habs give up a tying goal with a minute left!

Is that Ronal Corey sitting behind the bench?

Grrrregoire said...

I'll be pissed if they don't get the 2 points...

copyranter said...

Radek Dvorak scores twice on you in a period you deserve to lose.

HabsFan29 said...

the Canada SO last night was much more stressful

Grrrreg said...

Boy that was close. Come on Jaro, it's time to be good!

Van Hab said...

the "C" looks really, really big on Kovalev's sweater right now. too big.

moeman said...

Vodkov!

Grrrregoire said...

Well, let's take the 2 points and forget the game.

HabsFan29 said...

we deserve 1, 1.5 points tops for that game

Rips it, scores! said...

Great win, fully deserved!


Oh, you mean that Florida didn't win? Ignore what I just posted so.

copyranter said...

Habs totally deserved two points for that yeoman effort.

moeman said...

Merci Mon Dieu pour les deux points.

Number31 said...

That was an episode of the Twilight Zone. I have no idea what the fuck just happened.

Shutdown said...

@31.

Shutdown said...

Are you serious? That picture didn't work? shit.. I swear it was hilarious. Let me fix it...


Here ya go.

HabsFan29 said...

Number31 said...

Woo! Donkey Konga Semin!

Shutdown said...
