Take me to your leader

So les Habitants have announced that next year, we will no longer be a rudderless team adrift in a sea of mediocrity. Or something like that. Yes, the Habs will have a captain this season, though Count Chokula was pretty shaky on the details. I have already made my choice, and JM says according to the article that it's "an individual who worked hard in our leadership group last year", so that would probably rule out Big Tits up there.

He'll throw us all a curveball and announce "PK Subban"!

I vote for Mike Komisarek.

Am I getting this right, Count Chocula and M'sieu Gauthier are going to break a tradition of a century and appoint a Captain? Surely we need an injunction. This for the players, not the Coach. This is not Ottawa, this is not Quebec.

I'm coming out of my 15 hours a day work schedule (plane tickets home don't pay for themselves) to vote for Youppi. Frankly, this site has been anti-mascot long enough. From Big Bird to the various Rockets, FFF has ignored the contributions to our furry friends.

As a fellow Orange person I find it not only racially insensitive but also symbolic of society's mocking of Orange culture in general. I bet you laugh at all the "Orange ya glad" jokes when no Orange people are around. We were finally allowed to appear in the rainbow only just last century and just this month our people finished second in the World Cup. Yet, it wasn't that long ago that Orange mascots were relegated to the MBL. Seperate but equal. But how can you be equal in crumbling buildings and no community support? Now we're supposed to be integrated, but yet I only see a few Orange faces at Habs games, usually forced to dance and perform for children in order to even enter the building. Sure, some of you purport to support the Orange, but at the end of the day you go back to your safe white, black and brown nieghbourhoods knowing that an Orange person will never be able to afford the house next door. Oh, Orange is cool, it's hip to be seen with Oranges. Pop-princesses drop O-bonics and spray themselves Orange to seem 'in the know'. But have a freakishly large Orange muppet sit near you during a hockey game and suddenly you're complaining about not seeing over his abnormal head or the rotting french fry caught in his fur.

I have a Delusion! I have a delusion that one day this great blog will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We don't give a fuck"! I have a Delusion! I have a Delusion that oen day little Oranges will live in a fruit bowl where they will not be judged by the colour of their rind but by the sweetness of their juice!

Youppi for Team Captain!

@Orange
I will be saying 'purport to support' all day.

@Orangeman - + 1,000 (i.e. number of cups of coffee it will take to get me going today) for that post.

So... What'd I miss over my past few months of silence? Nuthin'? K. Carry on...

Seventeen year contracts, huh? The NHL gets more ridiculous by the day.

HabsFan29 said...

even Garth Snow is impressed with the Kovalchuk contract

@orangeman : You goofy bastard!

Simon Gagne is now with Stevie Y and Guy B.in TB for one Matt Walker and a 4th rounder in 2011.

Flyers get tougher on the blue line and things might be getting interesting on the Gulf Coast (not the oil spill, the hockey team).
