So everyone follow along if you can. Yesterday morning, The Gazette's Pat Hickey reported:
"The Gazette has learned that Markov, who wore an "A" on his jersey as one of the assistant captains last season, was asked whether he wanted to wear the "C", but told the Habs he wasn't interested."
Then yesterday afternoon on Habs I/O, reporting from their own post-scrimmage audio:
"Today's news: Andrei Markov says he hasn't been approached about the captaincy"
Alright then, simple enough. Either Markov is lying, or Pat Hickey is a crappy journalist. Either way, fun times at FHF this morning!
OK enough fun, let's go to the TMS mini-rant. Jesus fucking Christ, Montreal media, GET A LIFE. Go listen to the Markov audio linked to above. No wait, don't. It's too fucking much. What seemed like a half hour of one fucking idiotic repetitive question after another about Markov as captain AFTER HE FUCKING TOLD YOU HE WASN'T ASKED AND DOESN'T WANT IT. Why don't you leave him the fuck alone and let him play hockey; that's all he wants. Or fucking ask him some, you know, HOCKEY questions. How do you feel about all the new guys? How long do you think it will take to gel? What do you think about the revamped defence? Do you think you can match or exceed your point total from last year? How's the new coach treating you? See, we can do it and TMS is NOT A FUCKING TRAINED JOURNALIST.
It's gonna be a long season.
