The Morning Skate Says Goodbye for Thursday, April 1st

Morning kiddos! Hope you're all doing well today. Going up to to 14 degrees today in Montreal before some ridiculous mid-20's on the long weekend. Well that's where the good news stops, cause the rest of TMS today is pretty ugly. First, we have the ugliness of a 2-1 loss to the WhalerCanes last night. Basically fell apart in the 3rd, leaving the Big Fat Wale to the wolves after Cam Ward stoned us through two. Or we just can't score, your choice. Meh.

But the bigger news this morning is that this is the last-ever Morning Skate. The schedule of yours truly is about to change dramatically and it just won't be possible for TMS to continue. As you might remember, TMS is currently pursuing his Master's Degree. As of next week, we are quitting our job (that we were doing part-time) to concentrate on writing our thesis full-time. And from previous academic endeavours, we know that we have to regiment our schedule to be able to write the tens of thousands of words required. And our best, most productive writing time is actually in the afternoons and evenings. So as we will be in the library just about every weeknight, that means that we will have to sleep in in the mornings. Thus, TMS just won't be able to be written. The Royal We is dead.

Not to worry, HF29 is not going anywhere. I'll still have time for all the half-naked song parody previews I love to do so much, there just won't be a TMS to greet you at breakfast or when you get to work. But please continue to comment on the previous day's post. We've built a great group of commentors here and it would be a shame if you guys couldn't talk to each other and rant about the suckiest team that ever did suck.

See you in the afternoons.

So is that your "April Fool's Day gag over and done with for another year then? I fuckin' hope so! I'm stressed enough about the state of Habsland as it is without this little bombshell.

I think the Doors said it best:

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate pants, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end

If it isn't the shit team that we have to watch night in and night out, it will be the Habs fans who attend the games that will drive me away from this team. I am so sick of hearing them carry on like assholes...booing the ref everytime a Hab falls down... singing 'nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, hey goodbye' when up by 2 with 5 mins to go...or booing Price for being named the games 3rd Star. Even if these morons are in the minority, they are still a very loud minority and only serve to embarass this organization...

Ward must be related to Brodeur.

Was at the game last night and its has become all to clear that most of the real Fans have long since left the building. I am certainly not a huge Dollar $ign supporter and much prefer the foreign guy in nets but to boo a guy who did absolutely NOTHING wrong in a 2-1 loss just goes to support my point above. It was a 2-1 loss you fucktards...the 2 goals would not have been stopped by anyone. The goalie at the other end of the ice stole the game in the 1st and 2nd. You need to score more then 1 goal in the NHL to win a fucking game. Bunch of fucking retarded assholes. The people currently claiming to be fans don't deserve for this team to make the playoffs. They should all just go fuck off cause its sickening and its making the real fans and the franchise look like chumps. Ok thats my rant.

Oh and by the way 29 nice April fools joke....it better be a fucking joke! I don't want to have to go back to rehab...there a scary people there!

Pleks is good, but I wouldn't sign him...if he is signed for around $5m, then Gomez and him will be the top two centres for the forseeable future, I don't see many cup appearances with that 1-2.

CTV News item:

April Fool's Day used to be a day of jokes, fake news items, and the always popular switching the salt for the sugar prank. These days, fake news items, sadly, still abound. But now, it's all about the web-based April Fool's Day hoaxes.

See you tommorow???

If things go bad, we can blame the coach that encouraged his defensemen to tighten their gaps so much that they routinely had to dive and slide when they had been beaten. The first goal last night- if the defenseman had stayed on his feet ... I hope Count Chocula enjoyed the kudos two weeks ago. The fear I have is that he has refined his technique for coaching teams into choking so that they can choke before the playoffs.

Happy thesising, 29!
(Don't use "thesesing" in your thesis, though)

Weak. You're gonna stop posting pictures of young ladies in skimpy clothing for a Master's thesis? Ya right.

Hey, when do the Habs reveal their April Fool's joke? Cause they didn't seriously lose to the Canes last night, right?

Right? Har har, very funny ... now somebody tell me the real score from last night!
