The Morning Skate is all BGL all the time

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of naked PETA women...
  • BGL is a great human being, according to the Gazette;
  • BGL is such a great human being he's sorry for his recent sex 'n booze ad. No need to apologize Georges, we loved it. But it may get him in trouble with the league, as it may be in violation of the CBA. Oy. Also, gotta love this line from the story: "If I'd known (the ad's content) I wouldn't have done it - that's for sure." It's not like he was there filming it or anything, how could he know?
  • BGL won't be allowed to wear his preferred number 27, as the Habs expect Kovy to be back any day now;
  • PETA is running a contest with a chance to win a signed puck and photo from BGL. All you have to do is comment on a blog. You guys know how to do that, don't you? Link also has BGL's excellent new PETA video which has been making the rounds (you may not want to be eating any chicken products while watching);
  • Tonight, BGL is the star of a fundraiser at the Corona Theatre for local community animal shelters and to build a new low-cost animal care center. PETA's fake blood-throwing and other media-whoring antics may irk us, but decent affordable care for animals we can get behind. And those Quebec puppy mills make us sick. And as Bob Barker used to say after fucking a spokesmodel, "help control the pet population. Have your pet spayed or neutered."
Jebus that's a hell of a 24 hours you've compiled there Georges.

Lap dances to copyranter for shooting us the new BGL PETA video first and GG11 for feeding us links thus inspiring this special TMS. Blame them.

FYI, PETA are in the habit of harassing scientists who do medical research with animals, up to a point that is pretty close to terrorism.

We're not talking fake blood. We're talking families scared to go home to their own houses.

I was going to go with "hilarious" but Boob kinda brought the mood right down.... I for one completely see BGL's side of things. When DrGG comes home at night and asks what I've done during the day I stare blankly at the stripper I've photoshopped and the bottle of wine and say "I raised money for charity, duh". Georges has generously offered to raise money for women's rights to make up for his faux pas. Maybe he'll do a spot smoking cigarettes with kids....and then he can do charity work for kids who smoke with an ad of him playing wheelchair basketball with old ladies.... and then charity work for special olympics and bladder control....

I'm right behind animal welfare but Peta is too over the top even for me. Love the comment about Kovy's number, I was thinking exactly the same thing yesterday. How many more games do the Leafs lose before Wilson gets the axe?

HabScot said...

The thing BGL should be embarrassed about in that video is the implication that he could deke his way through a crowd of hotties, or indeed pensioners for that matter.

That's far more demeaning to those women than any number of skimpy tops and short shorts.

Fuck, BGL almost re-invented road hockey.

Also, life is good as the leaf keeps on sucking. How's that Centre of the Universe thing going eh Dou$harek?

moeman said...

Dou$harek gives head.

Montrealiste1 said...

5:38!? HF29, thats early.

@Moeman: that made my day!!!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Just to clarify, that is Pam Anderson sitting in a steak.

Moey said...

@moeman,

Yup, Pierre's "big four" are certainly ripping it up in leafland, especially now that Doucharek has lost his ball and chain Markov. What a dickhead.

@moeman

Great link, one of the comments from the video :

Geez, the Leafs thought Komisarek was going to save their team. Their only good defensemen are Schenn & Exelby; Homosarek isn't one of them. All this guy does is take bad penalties (ie: elbows tucker for no reason & then on the PP Tucker scores) & well... make himself look like the overrated fag that he is.

I especially love the new nickname, Homosarek.

GoldenGirl11 said...

This is great. A comment on BGL in the Gazette...

Georges is a wonderful, caring human being!! I just wish he would stop this fighting on the ice. He portrays himself as a bully, a contradiction of who he really is!! Our children follow their heroes. Be a heroe and stop the violence !! Afterall, you are fighting against animal abuse. What about your abuse to your fellow man?

and so with that suggestion... Big Georges Laraques spokesperson against violence in the NHL by day, enforcer by night.

reporter: Uh, Georges, that's kind of a conflict of interest.
BGL: It is? I had no idea! I never would have agree to speak out against fighting in the NHL had I known what that meant.
reporter: You didn't know what "stop fighting" meant or what "NHL" meant?
BGL: I'd be happy to make it up by being a spokesperson for underpaid reporters if you'd like. Just go to my blog and sign up".

give BGL the #27. enough of this fantasy of kovy coming back. DO. NOT. WANT. HIM. BACK.

GoldenGirl11 said...

This is one of the comments from Peta contest
What a combo--veganism and ice hockey. I am a vegan hockey fan that never misses a game

Do you think it would be ok to lift that for a contest I'm entering? You have to vote on your favorite Jewish sports figure and you win a lifetime supply of [ethically and humanely] gefilted fish...

What a combo--Judaism and curling. I am a Jewish curling fan that never misses a game
Totally makes sense! Thanks Vegan AAG! I hope I win!

Number31 said...

Whether you want him back or not, Kovy seems to spend more time here than in Ottawa. Anyone see him on the catwalk there on the news? Could quit playing hockey and take over Fabio's job posing for Romance novels with clothes like that O_O

Somehow he even got the Belamullet to look styling too.

The Laffs

Komisarek tastes plexiglass

Chester said...

What is wrong with playing ball hocky with scantily clad babes.
I just don't get it.

moeman said...

@GG11, nice clip of Dou$harek eating the glass.

Wasn't it peeair that said Dou$harek, one of the BIGBADBELLIGERENTRUCULENTESTOSTERONED4! would be missed in Montréal, namely Vodkov would be the one picking fibreglass out of his teeth? heh at Burkenfreude.

HFF33 aka Panger said...

@Chester: thank you. WTF is the problem? Maybe the alcohol angle violates the CBA, but otherwise this is political correctness run amok. The girls are dressed in tight, revealing outfits - LIKE PLENTY OF OTHER WOMEN ON TELEVISION. Give me a break. I can't believe BGL even apologized.

Link no worky!

GoldenGirl11 said...

sorry about that
I was so annoyed I must've blacked out

wv: gravate

kevincrumbs said...

Shawn Belle will save this team and win us the Stanley Cup by November. He'll also save more kittens and be in more ads with scantily clad women than BGL. Also, he's going to wear #2 just for the hell of it.

On a serious note, I think more people would be okay with BGL wanting to wear Harvey's #2 than Kovy's #27. Time to get over the slacking, passes to the other team, shows up once every eight games, lead us to nowhere Kovalev.

RE: animal was by far the coolest muppet. +1

This always brings a tear to my eye:

Animal, Beaker and the Chef

ooh. wv=diseses. Pam better not sit on too many steaks (unless it's my tube steak, heh...YES, I'm 42 GOING ON 13! SHUT UP!), lest she contract some diseses.

Animal the coolest muppet -> vs Buddy Rich in a drumming battle

we hate Toronto

cottoneye said...

I think Toronto hates Toronto these days.

You know at first I was happy to see they were sucking but it's gotten to the point where I honestly feel bad for Komisarek. What stage of grief is that?

kevincrumbs said...

@cottoneye: Really, you feel bad for Komisarek? Meh, he took the money and ran and like one Rainier Wolfcastle once said, he probably sleeps on a pile of money, surrounded by naked women.

Check out Habs Inside/Out to see Price's new helmet. Cowboy out, Grim Reaper in. No strippers so far as I can tell.
