TMS is reporting that La Presse is reporting that Gio will be captain

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of Paraguayan cellphone babe in Playboy...
  • Exclusive! TMS can exclusively report that François Gagnon of La Presse is exclusively reporting that Brian Gionta will be the Habs captain. No one from the Canadiens confirms this, but Gagnon's nameless sources say it's true;
  • Things got chippy in the intra-squad game at rookie camp yesterday, with PFK and Ben Maxwell fighting for no reason;
  • BR's latest scribe about the loss of the Nords and the effect on the Habs is so mind-numbingly out there it might need its own post;
  • The Ottawa Senators will host the 2012 All-Star game. Party at moeman's!
  • Marc Staal gets a 5 year extension at almost 20 mill. Scares us to think what Vodkov is worth;
  • Shut up, Bruce Dowbiggin;
  • One last True Blood pimping, because Wrap Around Curl's before and after finale videos are worth a view even if you hate the show.
OK after several emails, we have been assured by RDS's technical folks (merci Sebastien!) that the videos should now wo-- ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNO-CIRCLE. Sorry, still having an effect from yesterday. Here's highlights from yesterday's rookie scrimmage. Maybe.

The Hypno-Circle is gone! It's a Federalist plot!

Ben Maxwell's gonna get cut for that. NEVER TOUCH THE FRANCHISE, Scrubby McHamiltonBound!

Ok, I've been out of hockey for a while but always reading FHF.

Nice to see TMS is back baby!

moeman, from Ottawa? Dude, we should definitely party at your place tabarnak!

Maxwell is a gonner, I think. Not because of this little dance at rookie camp, but just because he ain't cutting it. I have nothing against the guy, but he seems to be one more D'Agostini...

BRUINS SUCK! LEAFS SUCK MORE!

Gio for captain, NICE!

Hynocircle gone ... weird blue and red fringes on half-clothed Paraguayan hotties instead. Fair trade no?

Please send out special glasses to all FHF faithful and launch 3D version of your fine site -- photoshops and all -- ASAP. A new decade is soon upon us (depending on your calendar, and whether a decade begins on the 0s or 1s, etc etc).

WC: stingl. I feel a little stingle at the back of my brain stem.

Berti Berti Berti you sure can souvien with the best of the anal gazers ... sigh ...

Nice to get back into a rhythm here, sepratits moaning, hockey news as wellas video clips and of course boobs.

Life is good.

Any chance we can get BR a job as bowling alley GM?

Chester said...

Hey the Laval-sur-le-lac web site doesn't have a hinglish button. Wonder if Geoff the Molson is aware of this.

L Dude said...

My video still not working, but that's probably 'The Man' (my employer) screwing me.

Fear not. If, like myself, you're going through hypno-circle withdrawls, scroll down. They're still there!!!

Brian Gionta is the perfect choice for Captain of the Habs. He looks down on no man. /smurf joke

moeman said...

Yup, I'm in Gatineau, East, Templeton. BYOBoobs.

Gio would/will be a great choice. tsn has an update;

Anyone else catch one of the few sane episodes of the ANTI-CHambre last night? Its a small world, here's why;

If you check my LinkedIN page you'll see that I worked at Apple Canada for almost 10 years. If you check my connections you'll find an Apple colleague by the name of Jean Laporte, he was based in Montréal and was my manager for 2+ years. He left and went to Microcell, aka FIDO (since bought by Rogers). Jean is also the son of the former Québec minister murdered by the FLQ. (Funny how that wasn't mentioned, after-all the 'Québecois' question raised it's ugly head more than once). Jean brought some sanity to the usual Les Boys club atmosphere.

I found the economic discussion more than interesting as Jean tried to calm the troubled waters of ignorance. It was fun to see a loudmouth like michel bergeron be quiet for a change and a 'journalist' like francois gagnon scramble to keep up. Bergeek never once challenged Jean, neither did the host. Jean didn't fall into any language traps either.

Anyways, it was great to see a good friend speak some hard, factual truth, at least for an episode. Whenever heading to la belle ville de Québec you might cross Le Pont Pierre Laporte, think of Jean and the great Province that is home to our Canadiens.

As for tonight The Urologist takes to the couCH.

Also, why do I feel like a SubWay sammiCH?

Tabarnacque!

You know ... normally over the years every time Paulie would open her big mouth and utter some ant-effin-anglo bullshit I'd get pissed. But the really sad thing about this Habs for Canada slop, is that, I guess the fat old woman is just running out of ideas. To be wading into the Habs/francofone hockey stars thing is some sorry flakey attempt to mobilize the patates and get some face time in the news. PAULIE ... GO HOME. You are too old and stupid to play.

Bill 101 said...

unilingual anglo Hab fans from sea to shining sea are quite obviously sending a message of utter disrespect to the proud nation of Quebec

have we seen this movie before?

wv: some posters may be suspected of texpergr's syndrome

bea.habs.fan said...

as a French but not Quebecois quebec residing Canadian (it's complicated), I've had to deal with their "you would not understand, you speak like a snob arrogant French person" attitude. I've personnaly been insulted and criticized becasue the French spoken in France contains English words; like their French is without any English words or billions of anglicism.
i have now 0 tolerance on their whole French/English bullshit. Quebec politicians and media are a bunch of apranoid assholes who fall back on the language issue to explain/excuse all their problems.
GROW SOME MAUDIT COJONES, SVP

(rant over - I feel better now)

WatCHing and listening to our team's owner Mr. Molson and Gio, Squid, Mex, Josh! and TFS™, man can the fucking puck be fucking dropped any fucking faster!

Is it hockey season? No? Then I'm not taking the time to sign in as Orangeman said...

@bea: A rant so nice you had to say it twice!

When my English butt was growing up in Montreal I don't remember ever once being teased by other kids for not being French. What I do remember is several teachers mocking me for my accent and general lack of enthusiasm at having to suffer through school in French(M. Afriat, I know you can still read my thoughts so let me say GO FUCK YOURSELF!). I think that goes to show us the level of intelligence of these pure wool idiots. Having said that, I wish I could go back in time and calmly help my mother shove the French lessons into my brain more forcefully.

Just want to point out that in 1st grade my teacher's name was Mme. Cahier and my music teacher was Ms. Binder. Isn't that crazy? And pointless, but still crazy?

RiRi said...

Gionta hasn't even been officially introduced as captain yet and they had the nerve to ask him if he'd started learning to conjugate french verbs.

WTF is wrong with these people?

P.S. 6 more days until preseason! w00t!

moeman said...

The only thing I remember about my first grade teacher is looking up her skirt during nap time.

moeman said...

29, gotta make this.

soperman said...

These people obviously either do not want a good team or they do not understand that you cannot get all the best French players just because you are from a French province. Look at the fucking Leaves, they take too many players who are from the GTA but don't have the talent to play in the NHL. Where does it get them? Forty-three and counting, baby.

The best player for the job. If you have two players of equal value, go ahead - take the French guy.

WV - "sitchip" as in the Habs had to sit Chipchura so often, he demanded a trade.

soperman said...

Oh yeah, the video is great but I miss the hypnocircle.

Oh Brian, a Hummer? Really? You'd fit so perfectly into a BMW Z4 why do you need to prove your manliness in that reason-for-the-war army tank? I mean no one's telling you to drive a smart car or anything, although you'd fit nicely into that too, but a Hummer? I guess BGL gave you a good price when he had to unload it as per her Green party contract. Given all of that tofu I'm thinking Seinfeld when he couldn't get the smell out of the car. Hope you can't either so you get rid of that hunk of junk.
