It's a Saturday Open Thread of Love!

So my most important New Year's resolution was to have more ___ open threads of love. I thought about resolving to quit meth, but this will end up being way more fun. As this is a Saturday without a Habs game to review or preview (gasp!), we figured it was a good time to get a jump on the resolutions.

So what's on your mind? Winter Classic? Fuck you Bs. Where was the damn meteor? Check out the whacky bouncy bouncy OT winning goal for the Sabres in the only other game yesterday. In other NHL news, Habs are blocking shots left and right thanks to a piece of plastic (lap dance to GG11). Still no word on the health of both of our pairs of Tits.

The Olympic lineup is all set for everyone now, with the USA announcing its canon-fodder yesterday. Brian Burke went for Dou$harek and truculence, so no Giant Mexican, no Guerin, Tkachuk, or Modano. Their veteran is Chris Drury. Good luck. In other international hockey stuff the World Juniors have quarter-finals today; Russia-Switzerland and USA-Finland should both be decent games.

Of course the Saturday open thread of love isn't jut about hockey, it's about anything. Got any NFL picks you love for tomorrow? I'm only three points out of first going into this final Sunday, so I need bold picks. Do you love NBA teammates in Mexican standoffs? I love my Gators of course, but any College Bowl game you'd like to discuss is cool. Did you love your New Year's Eve? Are you still hungover? Any Oscar-bound movies you love? Which New Years resolutions did you make and love? Or not love.

If you haven't seen them yet, you'll love the photos and videos that GG11 took live at the game against the Panthers. And finally, you can let me know if you love this random blonde chick from habsordie.com breaking down the Panthers game (lap dance to reader Ryan):

I'd rather listen to her than the the guy who does the colour on RDS now...One thing - what is her problem with Halak?

that ain't saying much

i dont think she was necessarily anti-Jaro, it was more that TFS should have played given his brilliance the night before

Ryan said...

Appreciate the lap dance shout-out.

I really do wish I had any idea what she was saying, though.

Habitforming said...

I don't know about "love" her, but I could definately love her for a weekend!

Number31 said...

I'm disappointed in that meteor. It always lets us down. And for once the Bruins didn't get caught with too many men even though there were six skaters involved in that final sequence...

First casualty of the Euro Trip Curse: Andy Murray. (I think it was a Contract Extension Curse too. Double whammy). Blues bring the Payne.

Stunned C said...

The fact that je ne comprend pas francais, or something like that doesn't help the situation. So I fast forwarded to see if she started undressing at least. BORING... I feel FHF should be guiding my cock instead of blocking it.

soperman said...

HIO reports that both sets of Tits are on a therapy day and Rhino is dealing with family related issues.

Oleg Petrov said...

This is a straight-up audition for RDS from a recent communications grad. Chantal Machabée is going to run out of makeup sooner or later, and RDS does not have a French-speaking woman with a clue to replace her - remember when they had that reporter Diane Hayfield a couple of years ago? It was like watching your grammy talk about Xbox vs. PS3. This girl knows that unless they can poach Mme Wet Dream from Attaque à Cinq, it's worth an audition.

HabsFan29 said...

hmm interesting Oleg. I actually thought she was semi-competent in her delivery, despite or notwithstanding her other assets. i could watch her behind a desk after some practice and vocal training. has Chantal hit 20 years yet?

moeman said...

@Oleg,

I would settle for a smart, fun, athletic natural beauty with the voice of an angel (she'd be the extreme opposite of the screaming jennifer hedgeyourbets at tsn).

I know it's Benoit we're talking about here, but I was watching Thursday's game on the live feed from justin.tv (thanks to whoever posted that link here originally) and read in the chat (which reads like a streaming feed of youtube comments) that people were sick of Pierre.

I was kind of surprised by this, seeing as I consider Pierre to be the René Lecavalier of my generation, and honestly can't stand to listen to anyone else in any other language.

That being said, I live in an area where I'm pretty much the only person who watches the games in French (and understands), so I'm launching an open poll to see where the rest of the fan base stands; Do you like Pierre Houde as Montreal's play-by-play man?

GoldenGirl11 said...

I watched the blonde woman. I mean really. Put on a friggin sweater if you want to make a journalistic impression. Sorry.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Groin
I can only listen to Pierre.

habsss said...

Yeah I like Pierre especially when compared to the crap FSN commentors I get stuck with on Center Ice.

KML said...

Pierre has faults, but he's fine. Being in the land of Hanglish only broadcasts, I really miss his general lack of ineptitude.

If he could drop the coddling of pure lainers Pierre would be even better, though I'm sure he's contracually obligated to mention Max at least 8 times/period.

Also, should every Oleg Petrov post end with "/skates really fast and smashes face-first into boards"?

moeman said...

Houde's OK but he tends to exaggerate on what he believes are fucked up plays. He's no Cuthbert but thank god he's no bob cole.

kevincrumbs said...

Hey all. Back from Asia, jetlagged out of my mind and somehow managed to not have vodka + Pocari Sweat. FAIL.

I feel like I don't recognise this team anymore. Poulet? Markov? Gomer playing well? I'm just thankful there's not a game tonight because I'd just pass out on the couch and wake up while gnawing on my shin or something.

Look forward to spending my first real time on FHF in 2010!

HabsFan29 said...

kc im very disappointed in you that you didn't have a P Sweat and vodka. You're banned from FHF for the next two minutes

welcome home. you didn't miss much

Tits both game time decisions for tomorrow

HabsFan29 said...

Swiss just tied it in the last minute. this game is a thriller

HabsFan29 said...

Tonight we are all Swiss

Left the glorious sun at 2:00 pm, landed at 6:00 and stood in a 30 minute taxi line in sweatshirts with 3 obnoxious teenagers and a psychotic 3 year old who insisted on pushing the luggage cart which weighed 10 times his weight while alternating between yelling "WOO HOO" and "SHUT UP!" at rotating brothers. All I have to say is fuck you winter.

Now back to whatever it is you were talking about.

Number31 said...

Canada vs the Swiss Misters!

Pierre is fine. Over exaggerates things but show me a play-by-play guy that doesn't. Benoit Brunet, however, must be stopped. I'd even settle for a return of Yvon...

gillis said...

now this is the FHF i'm used to. No photoshop, just two half naked chicks going at it
