Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes: Bigger is better, dammit. In some things.

More room for giant Amazon hot chicks. You're not gonna complain about that, are you?
Oh hello there. You may be wondering if you've stumbled into an acid trip of epic proportions. I assure you, this shit is real. Or you may in fact be on acid, what do I know what you do on your weekends. Anyway, we've decided to spruce up the place a little bit. We hope you like it. Not a major change, just some tweaks. After four years, the look was getting pretty stale and we wanted to update it, without really changing it. Also, we wanted some more room for the photoshopping excellence of GG11. Some of the little details she's so good at were getting lost with the dinky space we had. Also, bigger pictures mean less words mean less work for me and the boys. Perfect, 'cause we're lazy bastards.

We'll be continuing to tweak over the weekend so don't be surprised if you see little changes every time you refresh looking for new comments during tonight's final preseason tilt from Quebec City against the Islanders. While we're talking about site news, I know some of you have been having problems lately with the site loading slowly and commenting issues. Really sorry about that. I hope the new format will make it better, and I've done a couple of things that should help. But really, it's a Blogger issue and thus mostly out of our control. There are just too many blogs out there, dammit, fighting for server space. So we thank you for your patronage, and your patience.

Finally, in addition to the updated look, we've got a surprise or two planned for the season that we know you'll like, so be sure to stick around. Let the fucking season begin already. GYFHG.

Love the word embiggins.

Mr. natural said...

Shit GG beat me to it, always loved that Jedediah Springfield "embiggins" quote.

ALLLLLRIGHTY THEN

GHMFHG!!!!!


Let the ups, the downs, the screaming, the crying and most of all the whining (oui j'parle de vous mes amours, les medias francophones).


Getting pumped here....

PHuck ya!!

Number31 said...

Holy crap this place looks almost respectable now! ;)

And Slap Shot just finished on TV. The perfect film for my morning coffee. Had me thinking: Who on the Habs would strip tease for the Cup?

moeman said...

GGotta love long, lickable legs!

Surprises? You mean FHF is possibly hiring BR to be an 'éditorialiste'? Speaking of embiggened heads, the girthier format means the BR heads will be even more frightening to look at. (Please, GGod, no réjean tremblay têtes!)

Allez-y Maudits Canadiens, à Québec, aka, AMCQ!

Saskhabsfan said...

I'm not sure who would strip for the cup (23 guys 1 cup?) but I think Souray would likely strip for a contract.

Moey said...

Love the new look!

Baroque said...

It looks very sharp. I like the changes. :)

kevincrumbs said...

Great look, even better tag. Jeremiah Springfield would be proud.

RiRi said...

Loves it!

Of course, the first time I tried to comment, there was no wv. Grrr.

swarkles said...

I like it. Everything is bigger.

I will also be missing the game tonight since I'm working. Of course this means the Habs will win.

orangeman said...

Yeah, embiggen is a perfectly cromulent word. Looks good around here.

Mr. natural said...

@orangeman, where are you now? Last I remember you where in Russia I think?

Cromulent, excellent word, spell check doesn't even recognize it. I don't remember the last time I heard it, couldn't remember it had to look up the definition.

Astute application mon ami.

Gotta get the vibe going GHFHG!

Wendel Clark's Balls, come home all is forgiven.

moeman said...

RDSéparatistes is turning fucking bleu (sans le blanc et rouge).

Are they CHoking on Mini Mayor Lebealm's small dique?

Cue Les Étrangleurs.

HabsFan29 said...

BB is worried about CHicken. join the club.

@Mr natural - if I may speak for o'man, he was in Korea, now he's back in the 514 where he belongs. though in his defense, Korean barbecue is the greatest food on the planet

HabsFan29 said...

Mario Tremblay and Joel next to each other. it's the Algonquin roundtable

Matt ftc said...

Actually pumped for this game, hisey (40 on the isles) played on my summer league team?. Oh and the site looks great!

HabsFan29 said...

who is Chloe Doyon singing the anthem? hellooooo

HabsFan29 said...

this camera angle is disturbing

GoldenGirl11 said...

Technically isn't it really the Colisée Pepsi Mae West?

orangeman is calling from INSIDE YOUR HOUSE! said...

I was in Ukraine for a few days on the way back from Korea (and incidentally I got drunk on the Russian airline b/c I was bumped up to 1st class and continued the party at the Moscow airport), that's probably what Mr. Natural is talking about. I'm now in Montreal, just blocks away from the phone booth.

There's a few Korean places around my hood but I haven't tried them yet. I need to distance myself more. Plus it's like 5 times as expensive as in Korea. I just haven't had enough shish taouks yet.

Has the season started yet? I mean seriously now. Have to admit nothing beats having a drink while watching the game AT NIGHT. Whiskey at 7am before work in Korea wasn't great. Most of the time anyway.

HabsFan29 said...

nice three-way... passing play

moeman said...

Sweet. Sausage. Score.

HabsFan29 said...

even CHicken couldn't miss that one

moeman said...

@GG, "Technically isn't it really the Colisée Pepsi Mae West?
"

Its da Colisée Joe Louis and a Pepsi.

CHicken!

moeman said...

29, bière moi.

orangeman said...

Well, it's hard to get excited. It's the Islanders, afterall.

fezworth said...

It's weird... I see 81, and automatically think: "When the fuck did Marcel Hossa come back to town?" (I'm pretty sure that was his number way back when...)

Ooo, a real save by TFS! Oh. Then he lets one in. Oh well.

HabsFan29 said...

our defense is fucking terrible

Mr. natural said...

@HF29 and o'man, Ukraine THAT"S IT!! ...and of course drunk.

Had Korean twice in China though, very good, really liked the ll.

My Chinese bud (Korean is his fave) brought somewhere in Westmount I think, was pretty good.

and that's natural with a small n, I'll let it slide this one time...

OK me thinks a post-pre and pre-reg season pantscast is in order and I will not put pants back on until this has been confirmed.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

moeman said...

Disaronno is so good.

moeman said...

PucKing Yeah!

fezworth said...

Go Peekay! I didn't even think he got everything on that.

moeman said...

Meant PFucKing Yeah!

HabsFan29 said...

FINALLY a decent PP this pre-season. PFuckingK!

moeman said...

Just voted NON on the rds poll. Juste pour le fun estie!

Bill 101 said...

ooh just watched some cbc around-the-league "highlights" Boogard spearing Neil in the ... ouchie!

wv: Chris Neil's eyes are weelie-ing around in his head

moeman said...

PleXXXe! resausages it to himself!

orangeman said...

Wait, did Pleks just do that on purpose?

Anonymous said...

When squids attack

moeman said...

heh, rds' new anti-Habs hockey 180 show will feature interviews with Gu:( and Jaro in it's first show. Sense a theme?

orangeman said...

Ahh, Smoke on the Water. The first/last/only song I can play on guitar. I also saw Deep Purple live once. That's all I have to say at this point of the 'game'.

Moey said...

Mr. Moey was watchig the game with me on the condition that I mute RDS and put on CJAD. Bless him, he's never quite got over bill 101. Anyhoo, CJAD is a few seconds ahead of RDS. Tabernac.

orangeman said...

Moey: tell me about it. Sometimes on my, uh, totally legitimate internet feed the sound doesn't work so I CJAD it. It does get fun on the commercial breaks, though. This is probably how someone figured out Darkside of the Moon synched up with Oz. In French.

orangeman said...

Does Cage Aux Sports give wings in the preseason? Me and the Habs are going to bankrupt those fuckers this season.

Moey said...

@oman,

I feel your pain bro. CJAD is saying "Oh Cammy you naughty naughty boy while RDS is focused on the Isles goaltender. I'm yelling to Mr. M WTF did Cammy do?

UPDATE: Mr. M has retired upstairs. WOOT!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Here's a trick. Listen to CJAD online and pause it for the one second then start it again. It'll synch your video with your audio. Now I have to go change the tape on my glasses.

Moey said...

If I were truly evil I would clockwork orange Mr. Moey and make him watch L'Antichambre for 24 hours straight.

Bill 101 said...

but if you listen to rds, you can call Eller "Zellers"

gotta go churn some butter

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Bill101
Beats when they call Edler "Hitler".

Ronan said...

As expected, TSN's headline was the Cammy meltdown... right up until the Leafs game ended, at which point they switched it to Toronto's win (I guess they had to make the most of it, as it's the last win they'll have in 2010).

orangeman said...

GG11: I tried that and it would shift, but like time travel you never knew how. Anyway, I'm alone at home on Saturday night. Synching up sound and video for a pre-season hockey game is the least of my problems.

I guess I should call videotron so I can get the game for real on the giant TV I got via an FHF contributor who will remain anonymous. I'll just say watching the season opener will be golden. Uh, like when I was 29. Naturally, mister moe...y.

Yes, I covered that up nicely.

Number31 said...

Pre-season is finally over! WOOOOO!

Bill 101 said...

@GG - RDS DOES CANUCKS GAMES?!?!?!?

OMG
OMG
OMG

faints

Number31 said...

Oh hey anyone else disturbed by the fact that Alex Picard has Breezer's old number? *Shudder*

orangeman is looking for an apple to crossbreed said...

Picard>Kirk.


I've embraced being alone on Sat nite.

Mr. natural said...

man too much to drink last night, barely saw the game was at a show at Pub de la place.

Big PHucking poker games going on in the back room didn't know this was legal outside the Casinos.


Anyway my only comment on the game (as opposed to commenting on the group of retarded psychos that comment here, orangeman I think you are even more unstable than I, frightening) is the Squid episode, that kid he Bobby Clarked is only 18? Man don't know what the kid did but he will remember Squid.

"The Kid and the Squid" the new show from Stephen J. Cannell (RIP).

And why oh why did TFS have to let in that last goal, things where going pretty smooth but I guess it's up to him to perform in such a way that eliminates the magnifying glass that is over every move he makes.....

Hmmm..."every move he makes, every breath he takes RDS'l be watching him.."someone wittier than I can take Mr. Sumner's little ditty an apply to this situation.

PHuck the Leafs, TSN, the PHucktards (insert favorite whipping boy here) etc.

GYMFHG.

moeman said...

Methinks Squid'll get a game unless collie is serious about the head shot attempt by Nino;

soperman said...

Bettman will find a way to "justify" giving the Squidder a big suspension. But it will be pretty lame and somehow they will classify him as a repeat offender and a thug.

By the way, I love how you spruced up the chat room, like recovering the chairs and painting the walls without tearing down any walls.

orangeman said...

@natural: I'm just being mellowdramatically self-depreciating. It passes the time, especially in preseason.

As for Squid, I don't even know what happened there. I don't like to see that sort of thing and I'm shocked he was the one to do it.

And seriously, Picard>>>>>>>Kirk. I'm not even joking about that.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Orange
I let it go the first time but no one is better than Kirk.... what's that?... Start Trek?... Shatner?... Oh, never mind.

Kmaxx said...

Love the new look - GG deserves the exposure...so to speak!

GYFHG!
