The Game Day Skate presents The Pantscast, Episode 1

Top o' the Morning, bitCHes! This is it. Loss one tonight! Game one tonight!! Go Pants!

So here's something fun. What do you get when you mix Habs-Caps, a MacBook Pro, and beers and Irish whiskey at Hurleys? You get the first-ever FHF Pantscast! FHF goes multimedia. Yours truly, HF4, and special guest Chris Aung-Thwin of HIO's The Other Wing had quite a little chat yesterday. We of course are previewing Habs-Caps, but along the way you get gratuitous swearing, Brian Burke, my own maniacal laugh, Kobe Bryant, and HF4's pubic hairs. There's still some kinks to work out (like slipping HF4's real name you fucking idiot 29), but we hope you'll enjoy. Just click play or hit the download link. No iTunes subscription yet, we're waiting to hear from you that this was crap before we do it again.



Download the mp3

Mucho thanks to Chris who was just awesome as our first guest. As mentioned during the Pantscast, check out the great work he's doing at Homeless Nation.

OK we're almost getting excited! Though with all the upsets last night, we're not sure there's one left for us. If you went to bed a reasonable hour, make sure to scroll down to the next post for HF4's Little People Preview of the D. We'll see you in the special preview and open thread later today.

I vote LG as the second guest. The FHF PantsCast needs a female representative. Nicely drunk, I mean done, guys!

@Ezzel
check out that 4th year engineering project in flight
Very cool

GoldenGirl11 said...

Sorry. Here it is...

bea.habs.fan said...

only got to hear half of this fucking incredible pantscast as my co-workers walked into the office.
had I known this was coming I would have dragged my sorry ass in earlier to fully benefit.

I agree with GG, you need more girl presence - we can fucking swear with the best.

when is the panel of expert a la TSN?

J.T. said...

Very nice, boys. I think 4's a genius.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@29
I change my vote. LG AND bea for the second pantscast.

dwgs said...

@GG11, are you somehow connected with Mech Eng? My lab is right beside theirs, I work with their kids a fair bit...
I've seen that plane coming together, nice to see it in the air.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@dwgs
Andrew is my neighbor. He used to be a little kid. Now I look up to HIM. These kids have not stopped
for weeks. So thrilled that it flew. Can't wait for the competition in Texas. I actually offered up my 3 year old as pilot. Would've made a much better YouTube/evidence for the courts video.

Arazi13 said...

Not bad boys.... you may need some exit music or something because i was listening to you on ITunes and your pantscast went directly into an audio book from david sedaris and i didnt even notice for 5 minutes....

why im listening to david sedaris audio books is another story....

@GG: Whoa. That is impressive. Kinda makes me wish us electricals were actually useful in real life...

Will listen to Pantscast as soon as I'm done studying... Finals time is very annoying.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Ezzel
Get the degree and then enroll in plumbing school for the big bucks. "hi there. I make a ton of money and I once built a plane from scratch". Sounds perfect.

screw you guys for being so pessimistic. i know the odds are stacked against us but give me a break if, you are willing to throw in the towel before the series even starts please don't bother calling yourself Habs fans because you jackasses sound awfully a lot like leaf fans right now. You are the worst type of fan that doubts the team when they are going up against a formidable opponent cheers like hell after they prove you wrong and then jump ship as soon as a little turbulence appears. There is nothing wrong with being realistic and admitting there is an incredible challenge going against the caps but stranger things have happened than the Habs winning. Yeah we aren't the best team but it's our team so love it or leave it cuz I'm pretty sure any of you fucktards couldn't improve any aspect of the franchise with your shitty disposition. Cheer all the time or don't cheer at all... who needs fans like you guys?

bea.habs.fan said...

@Anon - you're obviously not a regular if you think FHF are bandwagoners, you douche.

@GG I could never participate, I'm too much in awe of FHF.
(and I tend to swear in foreign languages when speaking)

moeman said...

Very well done! iTunes it SVP.

Great Pants!cast logo GG and 33 looks FHFantastic in his new Cup head.

Only one quibble with the inaugural show, no one said the word tits.

Also, this might come in handy.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@bea
29 loves foreign tongue!

@Moe
Thanks.

@anon
as bea said, you have to read every day to know that we are not bandwagon jumpers. Tongue in cheek negativity. We're here because we're all addicted. And honest.

Anonymous said...

@be.a. not calling them bandwagoners, not doubting they want the Habs to win I just think that calling it a wash before the puck drops is pretty shitty regardless of how many ups and downs they have experienced while being "habs" fans. Take your lips off their nipples long enough read the post before you rush to defend your internet buddies you cunt.

ezzeloharr said...

Awww, I wish we forced Anons to take names - it's be a lot easier to make fun of them that way...

@moe: my personal favourite is this.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@anon
We don't call names here. B'bye.

Anonymous said...

ps i know you guys aren't hoping we lose and are just trying to be realistic but lets peddle a little optimism our boys way and give positive thoughts a chance. No one doubts the severity for which you cheer for them, probably more than I do but lets believe as long as we can before we are forced to admit defeat.

Anonymous said...

@GG I guess being called a douche doesn't count?

lawyergirl77 said...

@Anon: Name calling? Really? Yet somehow WE'RE the Leafs fans?

Funny how you're yelling at the 4HF for being pessimistic and negative and saying that it doesn't help "improve the franchise"... and yet here you are, being pessimistic and negative and saying insulting things that clearly don't improve the blog.

Kind of a weird tactic to take, no? Unless, of course, you're being meta and trying to prove your point... which I somehow doubt.

Anonymous said...

@lawyergirl, ur right it was stupid to retaliate but emotions got the best of me, so i do apologize for the moment of hostility. I don't take kindly to being called a douche but im pretty damn sure it wont be the last time...today. I wasn't trying to sound like i hate this site but for Roy's sake doesn't anyone actually think we will win like i do?

HabsFan29 said...

I'm with anonymous. GO YOU FUCKING HABS YOU CAN DO IT!!!!! HABS IN 5!!!!

/takes 3rd meth hit of the day

lawyergirl77 said...

@Anon - much better!

I'm hiding that little spark of hope under a thick veneer of pessimism. Part of the whole "expect the worst, hope for the best" thing that rules every aspect of my life.

I actually do think we can beat these guys. I really do. When the Habs are good this year, they're friggin' amazing. They've had more amazing games against the Caps than not, which is encouraging. If THOSE Habs show up, it's going to be a GREAT series.

But when they suck, oy, fuck, do they ever suck.

The fact that we limped into the playoffs while playing some truly sucky hockey is worrisome. It added another layer to the pessimism shield. *insert Star Trek sirens*

GoldenGirl11 said...

@anon
I stand corrected. We call some names here. I wouldn't put Douche and your word in the same category, however. Yours conjures up visions of hating women which is the antithesis of this place.

CivilizedWorm said...

"Jose Theodore's a fucking cocksucker." hahahahahahahaha

Theodore's suckage is the only way we can win this series.

This pantscast is awesome. Watch out, Mon Ron!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@anon
And for the record, I'm with you on the positive attitude while I watch. I HATE when my kids mutter and yell negatives at the tv. I make them leave the room. I need positive karma as I stand on the coffee table... in my clothes from '93... inside out if necessary... squishing heads... and screaming at the tv. I picked Habs in my hockey pool in '93. Everyone laughed and felt so bad for the only girl at the pool that they gave me an 11th pitty pick. I took Carbo. They laughed even harder. He put me over the edge and I won. I still pick Carbo every year.

Mr Trivia said...

@ANON

Did you even listen to the entire 2400 seconds of blissful pantscast? 33% of the participants called for Habs in 5. 105% of the rest of the known universe is calling for Caps in 3 or less.

That's pretty do-diddlin' optimistic in my books.

J.T. said...

@GG11: I took Gilbert Dionne in my pool in '93. I laughed and laughed as I got drunk on my winnings.

RiRi said...

Can't we all just get along? :)

That Pantscast was fucking hilarious. I love the gratuitous swearing, 29! I'll be laughing till the puck drops!

"Maybe we can take these fuckers to 7 games!" That's my motto from now on!

Go Habs Go!!!

wv: extre - as in I hope Jaro had some extre chocolate milk this morning!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT
The guys also threw in Skrudland as a joke and I think he even got me a few points.

Now the kids do all of the picking at our pool. It's a nice tradition of 20 years. Hilarious to see the kids roll their eyes at the parents for making suggestions. Not so hilarious to watch my three older ones kill each other in public as they try and agree on a pick.

Doogie2K said...

I think this gratuitous swearing needs to be in the form of an iTunes feed with a big fucking explicit tag on it. I'm too lazy to do it manually.

Robbie said...

Dear Lawyers,

Subject: My proposed Open letter to missus pre-divorce

Dear Missus CH,

While reflecting back on the last year i realize much has gone wrong between you and I. I am not however quite ready to throw in the towel on this 40 year relationship. This last year has been painful. Especially given your total fucking lack of performance in Boston at the same time last year. This fucking year there has been much deception and many let downs. While i clearly blame you (well you and the 23 guys in your family and that dis-functional group you refer to as the head office) i am still willing to give you one final chance. I clearly understand that your inconsistencies, your bi-polar tendencies, your desire to get fucked by bottom dwellers while dominating the high class makes you rather impossible to predict. Combined with those runs of 5 bad days followed by 4 good days immediately followed by 6 bad days had me popping PROZAC regularly. In fact it got so fucking bad the doctor wouldn’t give me any more pills so I had to call that uptight, needs blow job desperately, redneck blowhard Limbaugh and get some off of him. That was a low moment for me.

Let me just say i am still, regardless of the disastrous 17 years which have past since you last gave me head, (EEHHH...a cup) willing to make this fucking relationship work. So here is all I’m asking: When you go to Washington this week try and act like a fucking class act. Try and act like it matters, like your fucking ass is on the line. Try and not bend over and get fucked by some drunk Russian fuck. I hear he loves to play dirty but try and control yourself. Try being a little more mobile on the D and try rushing into the zone instead of playing that God fucking awful trap you love. Yes I fucking know that guy in your family Count Jacqula says it’s the best system. But fuck him it doesn’t work and that fucker couldn't get excited about a harem so forget him…..i might even love you more if you do. The other thing is do you think you could throw around some weight, I know your friend the whale is capable but are any of the others? I do realize that your three best friends are smurfs but I would appreciate if all 3 of them could fucking show up at the same time one evening. It might actually make for some entertainment. Also please do something about your TITS…there sagging to your belly button and its getting embarrassing. Oh and last but not least do whatever you need to do to keep that foreign friend of yours happy. Don’t fuck with his head if he doesn’t do to well tonight. Don’t think about going back to the whale as punishment. Stick with that fucker and he might just pull off a miracle. You know like in 1993 with that french guy you called king?

In closing, should you fuck this up please discard this letter and officially consider our relationship over, done, finito, no more, riendo, KAPUTS. You understand you fucker? Now take a page out of Tigers book and ‘’just do it’’ or is that ‘’just do everything’’.

Sincerely,

One last chance

P.S. I’m praying you perform as hard as the Pope prays that no one figures out just how much of an accomplice he really was.

J.T. said...

@GG11: Nah, it wasn't Skrewie, unless you picked him as a Flame. He got traded to hateful Calgary that year. I was so bitter he wasn't there for the Cup.

My kids are still too young to pick pools. They just try to kill each other in public over who called who a booger head.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know of a way to listen to the game on a blackberry? I tried to get CJAD, but no luck. Suggestions?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT
Yes, he went to Calgary and I was so upset which is why they gave him to me. Maybe Calgary didn't make the playoffs which is why they didn't care but he was at the bottom of my list.

There have been a few years where we made the kids split up because it was too embarrassing to have them on the same team. They're getting better (or so they tell me as I refused to go this year for fear that I'd strangle one - or all - of them in public).

GoldenGirl11 said...

@anon
Slingbox works through BB. Very seriously cool.

Anonymous said...

Thanks GG; now i just have to figure out how to do it. The trip on the LIRR would be far more enjoyable if i could follow the game.

Any other ideas in case this one doesn't work?

RiRi said...

@Anon - If that doesn't work, Nobex Radio Companion is a free BB app that lets you listen to over 4000 radio stations around the world, CJAD included.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Be careful about watching out of wifi zone. You might rack up a huge bill. I'm sure you can get live streaming through your phone.

Sling Media

Slingbox is around $129, you can get one today and hook it up in a few minutes. I wouldn't be sitting at work wasting my time if I were you, I'd start sneezing and go home "sick"!!!!

RiRi said...

Oops forgot about that. Yes, you do need an unlimited data plan. Otherwise, it might be the most expensive thing you'll ever listen to.

Anonymous said...

Nah, I live in the states, where they believe in unlimited data plans for everybody. Nobex works great, thanks for the head's up.

Go pants, and such.

kevincrumbs said...

Haven't had time to listen to the podcast but I wanted to chime in that because of all the upsets last night, it means that we stand absolutely no chance tonight.

That being said, I need to get my fucking car flag onto the car before I leave the house this morning.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Kevin
NO CAR FLAG!! I REPEAT NO CAR FLAG!!! That's why we lost in 2008!!! All those damn flags!!!! Better off if you put a pair of pants flying out the window!!!!

HabsFan4 said...

Is Anon the same person that pops up every now and then to spew hate on this site? Or is it that every hating coward hides behind the veil of anonymity. It's ok to call someone a cunt, but Anon stands on a moral pedestal for cheering for the Montreal Canadiens unconditionally.

I love the order in these moral values. We really do have some awful fans.

Anonymous said...

Anon gives the rest of us a bad name... from now on, I will take the 4 seconds to come up with a creative handle, so as not to be lumped in with the cunt-calling anon.

Howard said...

Go f***in Little People!!! Go Pants! How many more hours to go (6)? I can't take the anticipation! Nice to see the Metro almost running again. That's gotta been an inspiration to his teammates!
wv I'm not balig out on this team yet!

HabsFan29 said...

plenty of optimism (delusion) in the preview Panger just put up

Anonymous said...

isn't being Anon the whole point of the internet?

(I mean that and porn of course)

are the usernames any less anon?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@anon
I'd bet there's a thesis out there on that exact topic or maybe 29 will study that as a PhD. We're all anon-ish but even an inital gives a frame of reference. MrMoey sleeps on remotes during the playoffs, MrsLD has been helping the raptors win lately but she hates hockey, orangeman can make a potato out of playdough when is insane pricipal isn't making him wash classroom floors during class.... A name creates a community. Call yourself Anon1, at least we'll know it's you.

Bill 101 said...

WARNING! THE FOLLOWING COMMENT COULD BE MISTAKEN FOR MINDLESS OPTIMISM!

Hi Guys, I've switched to grape flavour for the playoffs.

Go Jaro! Go Squid! Go Habs!

Habs take Game one 5-0! Jaro makes 16 incredible saves! Jose makes 2! not-Simon makes another couple! Gill is amazing! Ovie skunked! Tits combine for four of the goals!... speaking of which... where's my mommy?

Wooooohoooooooooo!!!

wv: blesse - so many choices - Max blesses Green & knocks him out of the series on a clean (ahem) hit!!!

Have fun.


Go Habs Go.

David said...

That's funny, on the pantscast, I could swear I heard someone call Tim Thomas a premium goalie... must be my imagination.

Go Habs!

fezworth said...

ROFL @anon.

I love that you come on here, throw around 'screw all you guys' (nice Cartman), 'jackasses' and 'fucktards', then object to being referred to as a 'douche'.

And BTW Anon: Anonymity is not the point of the internet. I highly doubt that DARPA poured that much money into a fault-tolerant, lightning-fast, geographically-agnostic communications system if all they wanted to do was to be able to yell obscenities at each other anonymously. If that were the case, they would have just written 'You're all Jackass Fucktards' on a post-it note and put it on the office bulletin board.

The internet is about communication and information sharing. Anonymity is simply a side effect of the technical and legal structure that we all connect to the internet through (ie your ISP).

I agree with GG. You should call yourself SuperAnonymous or something. Then you'll be part of the community, instead of just a jerk who didn't RTFM before he posted.

TL;DR - @anon, you started the name-calling. Read the blog, we're not bandwagon jumpers. Point of internet is communication, not anonymity. Give yourself a regular name, join the community. Otherwise, GTFO.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Kinky way to start the evening. I hope that woke the 1960's forum ghosts and sent them to Washington.
+10 (as in the amount of personalities Anon seems to be carrying around)

fezworth said...

It occurs to me... doesn't JHK post as Anonymous too? Maybe it's all him.

GoldenGirl11 said...

JHK always signs off.

matt - ftc said...

Spacek, the worst of free agent signings this summer.

fezworth said...

Well... That's a relief.

You went, you fucking Habs. You went.

fezworth said...

I think I'm still in shock. What I meant to say was:

YAAAAAAAAAAAAA YA BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!! GO YOU FUCKING HABS!

Chris said...

who's a fucking optimist now!!!
