The Game Day Skate. Do you hear me? THE FUCKING GAME DAY SKATE!!!! WOOOO!!!111!!

No time for formatting bullet points this morning we're too winded from excitement. So the only news we never got to yesterday is the big announcement that the Habs captain is... no one! Congratulations Council of Village Elders! You paid $6 on a $2 bet.

There was some other news overnight, as our old pal Judge Baum decided that both Jimmy Balls' and the NHL's bids sucked moose cocks, and rejected them both. Zing! OK now things should really get messy. And in other news, we can't believe we went the whole day yesterday and no one mentioned Matt Sundin's retirement. Remember the days when he was all we talked about around here? Me neither.

OK so we're gonna try and sort this day out with a Habs-Leafs preview coming up soon. If you want something to read in the meantime, scroll down to HF4's (with an assist to GG11) brilliant finale of the Bertrand Raymond preview, posted late yesterday 'cause of that whole Little Tits ugliness that we shall never speak of again. Or you could just watch the last of the TMS opening week totally random chicks 'n booze video series. The countdown clock shows 0 days. We're ferklempt. Let the collapse begin.

Oh...I woke up this morning and I realize I had forgotten how bad I hated the leafs.

With passion.

Dou$hness, go fuck yourself, when Pierre Mcguire is done.

" I had the honour to be the captain for the most historic and greatest franchise in hockey history."

- Mats Sundin, possibly exaggerating the importance of the Quebec Nordiques.

Last night I played my first franchise game on NHL 2K10 for the Wii. I was of course Toronto vs. Montreal. After giving up the first goal I stormed back and scored six unanswered goals. Final score: 6-1.

Price was good, Tenderness scored twice, Squid got a hat trick and Gionta got the other one. Somehow the Leafs ended up with Justin Pogge in net. I'm not quite sure how that happened.

Anyway, I'll be at the game tonight, here's hoping the same thing happens. I might report back tomorrow on what goes on behind enemy lines.

Also, is that countdown clock right? 9 hours and change would put as at 5 PM, 2 hours away from the puck drop.

@Ben - are you a lawyer or something? your math is terrible

L Dude said...

It's that new math. He forgot to carry the 1.

For what it's worth I recently got NHL10 for xbox and started the season, losing 3-1 to the Leafs. Price let in a brutal goal from outside the blueline 3 minutes in.
And Toskala was in net. Weird.

GO HOCKEY!!! GO PANTS!!!!
WOOOO HOOOO!!!

That is all...

@HabsFan29
I'm battling a cold but as far as I know I'm not a lawyer.
Right now it's 10:16. Your countdown clock says there are 8 hrs and 44 minutes to go. In that time it will be 6PM... no wait - carry the one - 7PM...
Okay, must be the cold.

WF: canty -as in I canty do the mathy when my nose is runny

GoldenGirl11 said...

Can someone explain to me why the male speaks of NHL hockey on XBox/Wii/Playstation as if it were real life? Not judging just trying to understand and grow closer to my kids who would probably finish the game before leaving a burning building. And once we're there, what's with the 'no flush' thing, guys? Is that extra 2 seconds really that big a deal.

Moey said...

@GG11,

Yeah, what IS up with that no flush thing? It drives me nuts. Fucktards.

cottoneye said...

I wasn't going to leave a comment but my word verification is 'fistru' as in: I hope Georges Laraque puts his fistru Mike Komisarek's face tonight.

Scott in Montreal said...

Biggest question mark going into the season: where are the 2009/10 calendriers? When have the Habs ever missed getting those into every last dep in Quebec before the first puck drop?

HabsFan4 said...

Budget cuts, Scott, budget cuts.

Maybe that disappointment will be offset by beer being sold at a normal price at the Bell Centre, now that Molson has cut out the middle man.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

eyebleaf said...

You guys are so losing tonight.

You know who's going to make it happen? Komisarek. And Grabbo. Montreal's favourite sons.

Chamby said...

Habs are gonna kick some Maple Laff ass tonight. Then Pierre Maguire will masturbate while he cries, using his own tears as lubrication.

bea.habs.fan said...

I'm so excited I'm hyperventilating !!!!
any chance time can fold upon itself (as quantum physics or something like that tells us it does) so that the puck drop can be NOW.

WF: consual. as in mcguire has consual sex with the douches in blue

Ben Dugas said...

@GoldenGirl11 and Moey
I ALWAYS flush and do most of the roll changing thank you very much.
What do you mean by comparing the Wii hockey to real life hockey? I don't think I'm confusing it with real life but rather making comparisons between a simulation and the real thing.

I don't know you or what you're into but I'll make a sexist assumption here to provide you with an analogy:

Let's say that you and all your female friends were fans of "Dancing with the Stars." Now suppose the game was so popular that video game companies and developers spent loads of time and money creating as realistic and entertaining a simulation of the show as possible and that you and all your friends who were fans of the show purchased this game and played it often on your gaming console of choice.

Now imagine that you had recently picked up DWTS 2K10 and had played the first episode in "season mode". Then maybe the next day the real season is about to start. Let's say your checking up on and commenting on your favourite DWTS blog. Don't you think you might make some sort of comment along the lines of "yo, I totally played the first episode on the Wii last night and Aaron Carter totally worked this this whole cabaret thing - a sign of things to come perhaps?"

Does that make sense? If it doesn't try swapping DWTS with Oprah or the Oscars. If that doesn't work I'm afraid I can't help you.

WF: propasta -as in "most men are pro pasta" or "Carey Price used to be pro pasta but now he eats healthy"

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Ben
I am touched (I can't speak for Moey) by the time you took to explain but I HATE reality tv and just the name Oprah annoys the shit out of me. Other than hockey I watch the news and Californication so in order to explain the game theory you should have used one of those...

1. Iran decides whether or not to destroy Israel with a nuclear missile
or
2. David Duchovny decides if he should shtup me or stay loyal to Karen

Now I understand. Merci.

L Dude said...

@GG: Actually for me, it's avoiding reality by creating an alternate reality. You know - life, work, kids...gotta escape that shit now and again.

Now to my real reason for posting. Isn't David Duchovny married to Téa Leoni? And addicted to porn? Cuz, you know...that's unusual for a dude.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@L
I understand the zone out thing hence the 3 year old with the stitches over his eye at 11 pm lat night as no one had the energy to put him to bed.... I mean he was sleep walking and fell.

David Duchovny IS married to Téa Leoni but on the show he is with/not with Karen, his architect soul mate. If the Wii game were about his REAL home life I wouldn't be playing because that would make it reality tv based which I hate.

WV = Eikedu as in L Dude, Ei ked u

Ben Dugas said...

@GoldenGirl11
I didn't think you'd really be into any of those things I was just trying to make a joke by swapping them with something "feminine" or something that would be the opposite of hockey.
Is Californication any good? I went through a few seasons of the X-Files over the past 6 months or so. Things really dry up after season 4-5. Good to know Duchovney's back on his game. Is his hair still awesome?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@L
Californication is a great show. Season one is worth watching. Season two, not so much. Three just started so put down the controller and get xTorrent-ing. Don't even think of turning it on while your kids are even awake. It's pretty much porn with a great script and better actors.
