The Morning Skate would like to knock a few blocks off for Thursday, January 28

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of going into the Hall of Fame wearing an Expos cap (or having nightamres about it, if you're the Hawk)...
  • Well the Habs should never go to Florida again. 3-0 loss to the Bolts last night. Ugh. While we certainly played better than Tuesday, a couple of real ugly turnovers and no PP goals meant another loss and some more tumbling down the standings. Maybe it'll be win two, lose two for the rest of the season? Won't that be fun;
  • So in case that wasn't bad enough, word leaked out yesterday about an alleged incident after the Blues loss when Markov called out Price, leading to a divided dressing room like some gang warfare or something. Who knows what the real story is, but we like to picture the Habs dancing around the dressing room like the Jets and the Sharks in West Side Story;
  • We're sure some other shit is happening in the hockey world, but really, who gives a fuck anymore.
Who has two thumbs and is getting real tired of this team? This guy.

DANCE FIGHT! Get those fingers snapping.

Win 2, lose 2? Didn't they do that all year so far? Hit .500 on the nose. Or noose.

Looks like a lot of us got some extra sleep last night. After the 3rd goal, like my team, I crashed.

Robbie said...

Dear Lawyers,

I have this problem and someone recommended that i speak with a lawyer or four. Let me explain. I have been married to this wonderful partner for let see, well about 100 years give or take a few months. Over those years we have enjoyed numerous ups and downs. During certain years, maybe aroud 24, they were like winning the Stanely Cup. They were top of the world years baby. Then there were some other years mixed in there that had some highs and lows but as long as we weren’t living in Toronto I took it with a grain of salt. But you see the problem has gotten progressively worse. I would say the last 17 years have been pretty dry (wink) you know no stanely cup years for me and the misses. Most recently I have been realy struggling with the question of divorce. You see my wife and I have been going through this particularly tough patch. There doesn’ t seem to be any consistancy in our relationship. One day its good, the next few bad, followed by a few more good ones and then some bad ones again. You get what I mean? Anyways I’m really close to throwing in the towel.

The thing that pushed me to this point was last week we decided to do a little trip to NJ (yeah I know the asshole of the U.S. but pretty much as close as I’d gotten to one in a long time). HOLY SHIT man! The Mrs. put out like 3 times that night. I was spent. So the next day we decided to return home and seeing as the night before had been so incredible I decided we should maybe do a NY theme night at home. My wife loves NY and it is my second favorite city after Montreal. So I figured hell why not! HOLY JESUS! That night the Mrs. put out 6 times….fucking EH! 6 times. I felt like the bionic man (well maybe that was the viagra). Anyways. So we get to talking and were thinking hell our relationship might be taking a turn for the better so lets take a trip to Florida and see what happens. Well fuck me. On Tuesday night in Miami I get only one go at the Mrs. and she goes right off to la la land like I wasn’t even there. I don’t get to discouraged though cause I know the next nights got to be better in Tampa. BUT FUCK ME I don’t get any! NOTHING! Not even a hand job. So now I’m really pissed and I think divorce is for sure the right way to go. No other options. I’m soooooo… fucking tired of this up and down roller coaster. But everyone tells me. GET A LAWYER….so what do you think guys any solutions.

OH P.S. My Mrs. has a father who is always grumpy, never smiles and makes some seriously questionable business transactions. She also has an Uncle who at every family get together is always talking about some system no one gets. OH and my Mrs. has two friends. One is a whale and totally not dependable. The other is from some eastern country and seems to be the stable one but the Mrs. can’t make up her fucking mind which one is her best friend so things get confusing all the time. Oh and she has these guy friends (3 of them) who are all like 4 ft 2 and they can really be an unpredictable bunch but I hear one of them actually makes like 8 million a year at his job.

Hope you can help
Yours truly,
Desperate in MTL

I'm not buying this Markov/Price incident. Since when has anyone been able to keep anything quiet in Montreal.... let alone for a week before words leaks out.

As if...

RiRi said...

@Robbie - I literally chuckled my way through that!

Any kids?

HabsFan29 said...

Robbie FTW. I love when commentors work much harder than the bloggers do.

Robbie said...

@ 29 just finished the night shift...i was bored

L Dude said...

Question: If last night's performance only registers a 9.5 BR's out of 10 on the suck-o-meter, what would it take to get 10 out of 10?

Should I just wait for Saturday to find out?

Watson said...

@ Robbie:

Sounds like the father, uncle, and one of the best friends have to go. Just don't get the father's advice on that ... I hear he irrationally favours one over the other.

Kmaxx said...

@robbie - Absolute classic stuff. You forgot to mention the Haitian orphan you adopted a couple years ago because you heard he was always getting in fights. He was misunderstood and needed to be around people who loved his and spoke his language. Sadly he never repaid the love and you decided to set him free...sometimes tough love is the best thing we can do for our kids!

HabsFan29 said...

@L Dude - exactly. I needed to leave room for future sucking.

Scuttlebutt said...

@The Iron Lung, scuttlebutt (hey i think i may take that on as my nom de plume) has it that it's someone with an axe to grind doing the talking. Someone whose position with the club has changed radically in the recent past. Someone who may or may not be interested in travelling to a nordic country sometime soon, but if he does go it won't be for the meatballs. Let me know if you require further clues. And again, who knows if there's any truth to the original rumour or the meta-rumour concerning the source of the previous rumour. Got it?
WV - illinslo, which pretty much describes our hockey team.

lawyergirl77 said...

Holy shit - Robbie FTW indeed!! That was AWESOME! Still laughing...

Honourable mention to Kmaxx for the addendum.

THIS is why I keep coming back to this site, even when the sight of a Habs logo has me in borderline tears.

RiRi said...

Aww!!! Vodkov and TFS hug it out in practice!!

Pepe Le Pew said...

Dear Robbie,

Love is sometimes difficult to understand, but if the sole purpose of your relationship is to get some, I strongly recommend you consult Tiger Woods shrink, before acquiring a domestic animal. Remember that divorce will only end up costing you an arm and/or a leg. You’ll probably end up getting some, more often with a squaw or you’ll get screwed regularly by a US politician working in DC, but after a while things will be the same as it was with your previous Flame and the next thing you know is that your ex little Canadien girl is doing it 3 times a week with somebody else.

You should stay put and be kind to your love one, surprising enough you’ll end up getting some sooner or later. If it’s rather later than sooner, you can still watch a little porn on the NHL network and satisfy yourself while thing turn around.

Your’s truly
Pepe

@Robbie: Unfortunately, if you find some hot young thing on the side for some action, it just doesn't feel as good. It only feels good if the missus from a hundred years puts out. Sure, someone likes these new fangled chicks with names like Annie Heim or Caroline but they're just not for me.

(Bravo, Robbie.)

----

As for Markov fighting Cari the Fat Wale, who gives a fuck? Shit like this happens all the time but it's just that Montreal is one of the six or seven teams in the league that has a media following who will report this shit. If two guys get into a fight at practice in Phoenix, does anyone even know or care? People fight at work (well, not physically but most people don't get encouraged to check their rival companies) all the time and people hate their co-workers all the time. Sheesh.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Pepe
So what you're saying is that I'll regret having a fling as payback for his fucking around when he was supposed to be working to pay for that ring I've been coveting for the last 17 years?

Price and Markov make love

Exactly!

From what I see you had a case of jumping on the bandwagon, or like some might call it, hopping on the bandwagon, either way there is a big difference between Robbie’s case and yours. In Robbie’s case he just doesn’t get enough and faked orgasm for the last 17 years doesn’t arouse him anymore. In your case looks like everybody is getting more than they bargained for.

If Mr GG11 has joined the Nodick fan club in the late 90’s, then moved on and joined Marty’s Satanic Cult in the early 2000 while flirting with Caroline, I’m quite sure all of these conquests where depraved of real love, we all know that a ring with out a parade down the Ste-Catherine aisle is meaningless.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Oh Pepe, it's so much worse. I have a sick feeling that MrGG is, I can't believe I'm telling you this, still hung up on his first love, Darryl Sitler. There I said it. He claims to be going "home" to visit his mother but while I've devoted myself - even increased from 34B to 65" 1080p - I know he's been hanging out at the HHofF/Subway station in the Leaf section. So disinterested in what he has in his home with me..... Ok, I think I'm actually getting pissed for real.

@Robbie, rent some porn.

In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, 'Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me. I'm dead.' Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion. You're dead

SLC, you leave our commenters alone!!

moeman said...

heh@HF10 but come on, considering our team's recent southern play, we all need a little Deliverance.

moeman said...

Sens, our next opponent, just slapbitched the Pens. Are they taking steroids?
