GO You Fuckin' Habs GO!!!

orangeman said...

After years in this emotionally abusive relationship with the Habs I am always careful before I raise any hope. It seems they never fail to meet the exact opposite of my expectations. Thusly, I am pessimistic about tonight. Optimistically pessimistic.

In the meantime, I hope the organization has given the green light to any and all children on the ice to punch Ovie in his tiny testicles if he tries any shit on them. If Hossa can get away with attempted paralyzing of another player, a 6 year old can get away with self-defense, right? Unless the league only cares about what jersey the offending player has on, an accusation I find absurd.

I got one thing to say: Fuck you, Jack Todd! Go back to baseball.

There, that feels better. GO YOU FUCKING HABS GO!

Howard said...

Jack Todd only took a little snipe at Carey Price today. His target today was Scott Gomez! The guy is relentless. I don't know how he can get paid to write that shit. Fuck off Jack Todd! I going to do my part by cancelling my Gazette subscription. Maybe they'll wize up and stop paying that hack!

@Moey Lucky you! I love watching Hab games at the sports books in Vegas! My faves are Caesar's and Mandalay Bay.

Maybe one of those kids can accidentaly on purpose whack Ovetchkin with the flag. Now that I would pay to see!

GO you fucking HABS GO!!!

wv Jack Todd will not stop synipe(ing) until a player is run out or town.

@31
I think Todd might be best suited for something like "Penitentiary Weekly". I think his natural style would work best when writing about convicted murders. Lots of anger in that man.

J.T. said...

@GG11: It'd be nice if he could turn the bile to something useful like lobbying against global warming or 'roid use in Washington. Unfortunately, hell hath no fury like a bitter, disillusioned Montreal columnist.

Chester said...

Nebraska Jack strikes again. Him and Farber, just a couple of know it all Americans who come to our country to take a spot that perhaps one of our own might otherwise occupy. Can you expect anything less. They should go back home and write about all things American, Nascar and Country Invading.

bea.habs.fan said...

Loved what Cammy said about the kids and how Montreal was not going to change it's pre-game habits for Ovie's superstitious ways!

hope he gets booed massively tonight if he does it again or someone takes him to task for it.

Todd is an American hence the bitterness in his make-up. I can't rememebr ever reading a good column from him. although to be honest Carey does lack maturity and was rushed; I think we can all agree on that

RiRi said...

Jack Todd is an asswipe.

Go You Fucking Habs Go!!!

@JT
Ugly this: So [global warming] says that [greenhouse gases] are so ugly it makes [it] want to go out to [the atmosphere] and throw up. Funny [external force]. Ha ha. You'd think that at [$8,000,000,000,000,000,000] a year, [global warming] could afford a mirror. Seriously. We're talking industrial ugly here. Take a look at that [atmospheric change]: [global warming] could have modelled for one of those gargoyles on Notre Dame. [It's] uglier than Washington's power play. When [it began], the [paleoclimatologists] had to [reduce greenhouse gas]. [Global warming's] mother is so fat that when [it] sits around the house IT SITS AROUND THE HOUSE.

Ooooh, even a little mean on global warming.

I'm wearing Pants!

GoldenGirl11 said...

I think Martin should dress the urologist to skate with the kids before the game, have him hold the flag, Ovie can take him out when he skates to the bench and problem solved.

Or maybe the poor guy is just color blind and can't see blue.

RiRi said...

GG - I like your way of thinking. I'd maybe put Hamr next to him.


Habs are so overdue for a home playoff win. Get 'er done.

Baruch said...

Who is bush league? Who should be covering the Q? The one who got promoted far too quickly and undeservedly to a position of prominence covering the Habs: Jackshit Turd. Seriously that guy is a divisive mole, working for Bettman to move the whole league to the states. Divide et Impero works every time.


Sure the way Pricey was brought into the public eye you woulda thought Gainey was gay. There was no end of love for the guy, he even threw last year's playoffs just to give the guy "experience".
If I have anything against Price it comes from my disillusionment over that decision.

Now we got Count Chokula who has his assistant read this forum for all the sharpest tactics, so lets get the intelligence flowing here: stick or glove on Larvy?

orangeman said...

I'm going to flirt with danger here and comment on Price. I don't like the tone of Todd's piece, but I don't disagree with many of his points, either. Come on, if Varmolov would have shot the puck at celebrating Habs or took a swipe at one of them after an empty-netter we would be out for blood. I don't hate Price at all but no one is doing him any favours by excusing his actions. Taking a stupid, selfish penalty with 10 mins to go in a 2-goal game is ridiculous. What passion? Anger at someone who beat him fairly? How does he learn and improve from that? It's not the end of the world, but I'm not going to pretend that it's justified either.

Anyway, since I've been all over Ovie's immature behaviour recently I thought I should show how fair I can be. I'm done now.

GO HABS GO!

RiRi said...

It's being reported that PK has been called up. Be still my heart.

No seriously. I don't like this one bit. Okay maybe a little.

Screw developing players properly! I want to be entertained a little!

The Forum said...

Jack Todd can be a serious jackass at times but is his column on Price that far off?

HabsFan29 said...

I agree that most of what Todd says is true. I'm not sure about "petulant", but Carey does certainly have some issues. But the column was just a little too Todd-esque

Marinaro at Team990 is in fact saying PK was called up. I'd like to see some confirmation before i believe it

RiRi said...

@29 - Some of CKAC's listeners spotted him downtown. How's that for confirmation?

God, I love this city!

Moey said...

'Morning all! It's going to be another scorcher, supposed to hit ninety today.

@Howard,

Mandalay Bay is one of my favorites, but I'm stuck at home (we rented a house), I have company coming from Toronto tonight.

I'm seriously contemplating putting a hundred bucks on the Pens to win it all. Should I?????

Sonia said...

RDS confirms Subban's call-up.

RiRi said...

Subban is the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter! The kid is so Hollywood!

Jimmy G said...

PK!

He's got 9 pts (3+6) in 6 playoff games so far.

Boob Gainey said...

In fairness to Todd he quit his regular job as a hack a few years back to write the Great American Novel.

I dare say his publisher is still waiting.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Todd's article is an embarrassment to The Gazette and real journalists everywhere.

fezworth said...

Peekay! Woah, that's exciting!

Habsfan10 said...

Stubbs twitter account says Spacek and Gomez didn't take the morning skate, and PK goes in if Spacek can't.

My first thought? Holy Fuck, Gomez better be healthy. That's a far cry from earlier this year.

David said...

Can't we all agree that Price's behaviour was not what we needed from the goalie at that point and that he might be a bit of a douchebag?

habsss said...

Can't decide if I'm going to watch or not. I missed game 1 and game 5. I'm too superstitious...

Bill 101 said...

Dear lawyers

What exactly does that 'faint hope' thing mean anyway? Does it ever work?

wv: By the end of the week, we shall all be ecstatic about how the Habs talimpt into the second round.

GO HABS GO!!

L Dude said...

Hi Everyboddy! Hi Dr. NICK!

Been too friggin' busy at work and home to spend any time with you fine folks.

Rumour has it Bob Gainey will be playing piano at the Bell Centre too. Not sure how far along he is with those lessons.

Little story for you. I went to a friend's place for Fridays game. Haven't seen him in a few years as he's been living abroad - Europe mostly. He makes me this drink called a Moscow Mule, starring.............WODKA!
Well, they were some fucking good. I can't tell you how many we drank. I believe it consists of Wodka, ginger beer (not ale!) and lemon or lime juice. Anyway, i gotta try to find some ginger beer on my way home and have at least one before the game starts.

GO HABS!

hfotwc said...

Jackass the Turd is a petulant idiot.

Go you fuckin Habs!!!

soperman said...

Perhaps you could use a "Jack Todd head" could replace the Bertrand Russell head, now that he is retired. :o)

@Moey - only a $100 bucks, that is like $99 bucks Canadian.
