Gainey on Facebook, priceless.

That's almost as gay as Ryan Miller (NTTAWWT).

WV - pingloon - no idea, but it sounds like a derogatory Victorian English term for somebody - "Vickers! Stop acting like some damn fool pingloon and get the gyroscope!"

Good luck with the piano, Bob. If anyone can pull it off, it's you. The puffy shirt not so much.

Piano Man

It's seven o' clock on a Saturday the regular Habs crowd shuffles in
There's Viktor Tikonov sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic and gin.
He says, "moe can you play me a memory?
I'm pretty sure you know how it goes,
It's not sad but it's sweet and I knew it complete
When Bob wore a younger Habs' clothes"

La la la de de da La la de de da da Bob
Sing your swan song you're the piano man,
Sing us a song tonight.
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody.
As you've got to be feelin' alright

Now Guy at the bar is a friend of Bob's
He gets funky ties for free
And he's quick with a bad joke
He's not a bad bloke but there's someplace that he'd rather be.
He says "moe, I believe this is killing me,"
As a smile ran away from his face.
"Well I'm sure that I could be a coaCHing star
Since Bob got me out of this place."

La la la de de da La la de de da da Bob

Now Ken is a real astute hockey novelist,
Who never had time for the strife.
And he’s talking with Lemaire
Who's still in the game and probably will be for life.
Now Ken is practicing politics
As Habs businessmen slowly get powned
Now they're sharing a beer called Cup loneliness
It's never fun drinking alone.

Sing your swan song you're the piano man,
Sing us a song tonight.
Well we're all in the mood for a melody.
As you've got to be feelin' alright

Always a good crowd on Saturdays, when the manager gave us a smile.
'Cause he knows it's his team they've been coming to see.
To forget about life for a while.
And the media sounds like a carnival
And their microphones smell like beers.
And they shit at the bar and put heads up that far
And say "Man we love giving Gainey the gears?"

La la la de de da La la de de da da Bob
Sing your swan song you're the piano man,
Sing us a song tonight.
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody.
As you've got to be feelin' alright

Merci Bob, for everything!

@Moe
One of my all time favorites.

Getting ready for 29 on CBC (I'm going to watch in extra wide so the camera puts on more like 20 pounds).

RiRi said...

Has the segment aired yet?

lawyergirl77 said...

Hey 29 - I see clutter in your place. For shame, for shame.... What will your mother think??

gillis said...

hey 29, nice stove

gillis said...

PS. did you get the reporters number?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@LG
what will his mother think? She was probably sitting on the couch encouraging him to put up a sexy Friday picture!

moeman said...

@LG
what will his mother think? She was probably sitting on the couch encouraging him to lose about 10 lbs!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Gain, Moe, gain.

moeman said...

Spoken like a true Mom.

Fatten up 29.

GoldenGirl11 said...

What can I say, Moe? Our little 29 is growing up. Living on his own, working, going to school.... It seems like just last week that he was posting sexy Friday pictures and now it's a whole new world of scat porn. Oh where have the months gone, Moe, where??

hfotwc said...

hey 29, just sent you 19mb mpg file of the your 10 sec of cbc fame.

hfotwc said...

just brunetted that previous post

moeman said...

@GG, and I hear our little 29 is delivering meth, meth for fucks sake, for free even. If only he'd be delivering ice cream instead. Creamy, delicious, fattening crème glaçée. Maybe Le Petit has fallen into a Gang of Four (ref. = the band) misfits.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
So is it the meth that makes you skinny or the delivering by foot?

moeman said...

@GG, how much is a foot of meth?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Enough to talk to aliens on Mars.

moeman said...

@GG, it is good for young 29 to have close encounters.

Can Youpi sing?
I see a future for duets.
Maybe they can do Osheaga
after a few piano bars in Peterborough.

kevincrumbs said...

HF29 has a nice pad. Means he can afford to give us both meth and ice cream... or at least meth ice cream.

Moeman - brilliant!

And the original - from a 1975 BBC recording
