The Morning Training Run for Monday, February 15th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of WINNING A FUCKING GOLD MEDAL ON HOME SOIL WOOO!!!!! (alternatively, having nightmares of the Quebec franco media claiming Alex Bilodeau as their own for the next 2 weeks)...
Buh bye NHL. This post is really an excuse to tell you we're not going anywhere over the next two weeks. We've got, uh, filler! Yes, filler aplenty! I'm sure there will be some hot babes, and we'll do some Team Canada open threads. Plus, two weeks worth of recriminations and anger. Do stick around.

On Antichambre last night they were pissed that Bob didn't go after Bilodeau when he had the chance.*

*I made that up

On my way to Montreal in an hour for a few days, looking into moving back there in the summer. Nail biting bronze for Kristina followed by a heart pounding gold from Alex. I'm in heaven and will be surrounded by the angels at Schwartz's and Fairmount Bagel soon enough.

Thrilling and exciting gold medal that unites all Canadians, except rejean tremblay who is besides himself again. I love it.

Kmaxx said...

Did anyone see how pissed the guy from France looked when his guy (last one down) came in 6th! - Priceless. Well Done Canada.

Boob Gainey said...

The Australian spam-king looked even more pissed.

The franco media is focused on the fact that nobody in Vancouver speaks french, except the guy at McDo's imported from Mtl. At least they could have sent some Mtl guys for the Chinese restaurants and the Vietnamese restaurants and the Lebanese restaurants. The other bitch is that Markov seems to have had a miraculous recovery. Would Markov have made a difference against the Phlyers? I don't think he could have taken care of necessary policing. Here is a million dollar question- BC minor hockey is a nanny state like Quebec- How come there guys get attention from the scouts? And are our scouts looking at the BCJHL? Niedermayer, Niedermayer, Kariya, Gomez, Price, Willie Mitchell. Actually to deal with the Phlyers they need some body from LNAH. We are approaching the anniversary of canning of Begin. He disappeared from the NHL didn't he. [Going over to the Dark Side with the B is the greatest evil.]

Robertson takes Silver in snow boarding. US has the coolest outfits though.

Just giving my Olympic name a test drive.

gillis said...

The goalie for the swiss women's team is Yannick Weber's girlfriend.

kevincrumbs said...

@b: The Franco media is surprised by this? Not saying that it's right or wrong but it's not like this is a new development.

HabsFan29 said...

@Lukey - oy.

LukeyNussbaum11 said...

I shortened it from Lukey Hufnagel Nussbaum.

LukeyNussbaum11 said...

What's the general feeling about seeing a female goalie and then hearing he phrase "goes right through her five hole"? Just curious.

hfotwc said...

Know what, there is a very strong french community in Vancouver and B.C. I know I am part of it. The french media have treir head so far up their asses, they can't even get it out when they travel.

Please fellow FHFer, ingnore those ignorant fucks, most of us frenchies are actually CANADIANS, yeah!, and really proud of it.

lr said...

come on - weren't any of you annoyed by hearing

BIEN-VE-NOOOOOOO all night!?

embarrassing!

hfotwc said...

@lr, what's more embarrassing, is to realize that in 2010, there are still lots of racism, gay bashing, pedophilia, violence to women and intolerance towards cultural diversity. What's even more embarrassing is to proudly display this ignorance cowardly hiding behind a keyboard.

mange d'la marde esti d'cave

Number31 said...

We do ignore it. Sadly those who bitch are just loud and obnoxious. I hear someone was bitching that Bilodeau wasn't parading with a Quebec flag when he won gold. FUCK OFF ALREADY 'STIE!!!

hfotwc said...

Thx 31, who cares about the french version of lr, Alex has a fuckin maple leaf painted on his helmet.

hfotwc said...

Way to go Alex! Go Canada!

boob gainey said...

Even the Federal Tories are pissed off at the organizing committee for the lack of French in the opening ceremony. If it hadn't been for the GG and the Belgian IOC dude there wouldn't have been any.

That being said, has any Quebecker done more harm to a symbol of Canadian nationhood than Nikki Yanofsky? She didn't sing O Canada, she hit it from behind and smashed its face into the boards.

Number31 said...

I love Alex's helmet. Damn I just bought a new helmet... I would KILL to have one like his :( Would match my red-and-white suit too.

Nikki's version of the anthem was great. She's a jazz singer! I expected nothing less from her! I wish she would come back to the Bell Center and do the anthems like that 07-08 playoff series though.

David Wilkie's Ghost said...

Boob, you've hit the nail on the head re Yanofsky gooning the anthem.

And while we're on the subject of cultural intolerance, I'd like to clear the air about my feeling towards Youppi. I have nothing against him personally. Some of my best friends are fuzzy, orange-haired two sport wonders (GG can attest that this is true). I just don't think the Canadiens need a mascot. Perhaps it's time for Youppi to be sent up north to live on a farm.

LukeyNussbaum11 said...

@Boob
In all fairness, Nikki is 16. Whoever did her arangement might have Americanized the anthem but at 16 I was sneaking into Casa Pedro's, not standing up in front of the entire world (wearing 6 inch heels) with the poise of a seasoned performer.

On another note, why do you think the Canadian speed skating uniforms have seat belts? To prove that as a country we're safety conscious? That and the intro and exit music to every commercial are making me nuts.

LukeyNussbaum11 said...

@David
Maybe that's why we have such resentment towards Youppi. He's not a natural redhead.

hfotwc said...

Poor little Nicki did was she was told to do. It could've been worst,it could've been Celine Dion.

Go Canada Go (except maybe for Chris fuckin Pronger)

David Wilkie's Ghost said...

@Lukey
Great, now I'm wondering if Youppi's carpet matches the drapes. Is there a kind of eye bleach that works on mental images?

LukeyNussbaum11 said...

@hfotwc
That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. Had Celine been up there with her Vegas version of the anthem I would have been sick. Well, actually, that's not true. I would've just turned it off. Nikki sang the anthem at the Panthers game in Florida on new year's eve (what self respecting Montreal Jew WASN'T there that night) and she was terrific. Much lower key.

hfotwc said...

I am sure glad they didn't let her anywhere near that stage. Probably one of the highlight of the ceremony.

Number31 said...

Know what's awesome? Snowboard Cross. Now the Olympics need to bring in Crashed Ice and you'll see those ratings rise even more.

L Dude said...

Damn! I stayed up late, fighting to keep my eyes open for the 500 m speed skating final, only to see Jeremy wother away into nothingness. And lose to one of the Three Stooges! Ah well, it's a young man's sport I guess. At 32, you're over the hill.

So no Big Tits for Belarus. I was hoping he was ready to play so he'd get some game action in before returning to the Habs. Maybe if his knee is ready in a week he can be sent to Hamilton for conditioning and get a few games in.

Considering the nature of this site, I think a Hot Olympic Athlete of the Day (or HOAD?) might be needed. They could be male or female. Or one of each. I'm man enough to admit there's some fine looking young fellas at these games. Well, actually Mrs LD pointed it out, but still. And I think we could probably keep it Canadian, but we'd probably be missing out on some quality Euro/Asian material.

@L Dude - you know us all too well. look at the new post
