Calvillo to Gio, Touchscores!!!! Alouhabs 3 Sabres 1


This could be an awesome Sunday. After shitting the bed Friday, the Habs bounced back and played what seemed like a decent hockey game last night. After Laval crushed Calgary to win the Vanier Cup yesterday, today the Als can win their second Grey Cup in a row. We are GIDDY.

First, le Club de Hockey Canadien. As you may have seen in the comments last night, yesterday Continental Airlines, the wind, and JWoww's tits conspired to keep me in Jersey and miss the first 2 periods of the game. So I assume it was a good game, what do I know. Here's an idea. Let's you and I watch the long-form video highlights together and see what we missed:



0:00 - Oh fuck, it's Mr. Senility, Bob Cole. At least I'll get some easy jokes from that. And at least he is old enough to know hockey traditions about jinxing and so forth, right?

0:23 - WHAT A HIT by ...? Bob didn't quite catch his name.

1:27 - TITS!!! SCORES!!! (mmm, tits at Scores) Looks like we had about a 3-minute 5-on-3 PP. For a minute there we missed the net so many times I was worried we would blow it as usual.

1:50 - beauty pass from CHicken to DarCHe to spring him in all alone. CHicken really has some offensive skills. Too bad his linemates never do.

2:11 - Bob pronounces melee "may-LEE". It's not like he comes from a country with French as a second language or anything.

2:17  - Josh Gorges attempts to simultaneously leg tackle and fist Jochen Hecht (who Bob calls Mike Greer) during the may-LEE.

3:05 - Price tells Derek Roy to get that weak-ass shit out of here as he calmly stops him with the right pad as he breaks in alone. TFS looks sharp tonight, he may get a sh---

3:45 - Tits, Gio, 2 on 1! Gio to Tits, Tits to Gio, and Gio SCORES!!!!! So many scoring chances and so many misses for the Captain lately, this has made me ferklempt.

4:05 - Carey is gang-banged in his own crease. Bob refers to the crease as the "blue ice area". At least he's not colour-blind.

4:27 - PleXXXe to Gio, sausage pass, SCORES!!! 2 goals for the Captain! I'm not crying, it's the dust in my apartment.

5:00 - PleXXE, Tits, Gio working some magic but a nice Miller save. At least we found one offensive line that seems to work. At least tonight. BTW, did Gomez play this game? He seems absent from these highlights.

5:20 - heroic save by TFS in close with just under 8 minutes left in the game. He's sure to get a shu--- now. Bob finally gets something right when he says "Price is the man again".

5:31 - Price doesn't see a weak shot from the point and there goes the shutout with 1:13 left. It's nobody's fault, I'm sure.

Well that was a hell of a game. While robbed of the shutout, Carey gets his league-leading 14th win, already more than he had all of last season. This weekend is going swimmingly. Let's set up the game that will hopefully make it perfect.

Waiting in line for a Kanuk coat because it's FUCKING FREEZING around here - 6 PM EST start from Edmonton on TSN. A rematch of last year's Grey Cup, won by the Als because the Roughies couldn't count to 12.

View from the Prairies - my Google search for "Saskatchewan Roughriders blog" not surprisingly came up pretty empty. Rider Prider was the best I could do.

Hot like anywhere but Edmonton - Als RB Avon Cobourne dominated the East final with 163 yards rushing and 53 receiving. For the Roughies, QB Damian Durant was full value in only his second year as starter, leading the league in passing with over 5000 yards throwing to the Canadian Air Force.

Cold like these Edmonton is cold jokes - Als' secondary can be suspect, and I don't think K Damon Duval ever fully recovered from his hamstring injury this year and I'm worried about some important late game field goal.The Riders have peaked at the right time, and really have no one cold.

On the sidelines and staying there - Als safety Mathieu Proulx is out with a knee (hurting an already suspect secondary), but will be replaced by Etienne Boulay, so RDS is happy.

Post-game adult entertainment - if you think I'm passing up a chance to post another vid of Als CHeerleaders, you don't know me. GYFA!!!!!!

ALlons-y!

moeman said...

29, did you enjoy the TSA patdown?

the Maritimer said...

@moeman,
Just love it when you rip on CBC/HNIT, Cherry, McLame, Cold, and to a lesser extent, the Toronto Sports Network. It's obvious that the leaf suckitude has made them all envious of the Habs success. I can't listen to Cold anymore, so I watch the games on RDS even though my French is very limited. At least Pierre Houde knows who is on the ice.

Keep up the good work!

BTW, I'd just like to point out the "Frenchman" that Cherry mentioned last night, Sean Couturier of the Drummondville Voltigeurs was actually born in Phoenix, Arizona when his dad, Sylvain Couturier played minor pro hockey there, so he is in actuality an American by birth. They moved to Bathurst, NB when Sean was very young. Sylvain is currently GM of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

If the Habs were to somehow acquire the right to draft Sean Couturier of the Drummondville Voltigeurs, would RDS and the antichambre gang consider him a francophone saviour or a poor cousin like CHicken?

GYFAG

great that one can recycle acronyms so easily on this page.
I should get home just in time to watch the game tonight. so far I have a perfect record: if I watch the full game, Als win the Grey Cup!!!!

Orangeman said...

Errrr, we may want to consider ammending GYFAG.

Number31 said...

I hear the Als borrowed Price for the day to hold off the Riders.

GYFA!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@orange
I just spit my coffee up my nose.

It should be GYFAG... NTTAWWT!!!

Orangeman said...

GG: Exactly! I can just picutre it now. Getting a dozen of your closest friends to paint letters on you belly for the game:

GYFAG!NTTAWWT

WV: chick. Just pointing that out.

iRiRi said...

Pizza and football tonight! Got a good feeling about tonight!

GYFA!!!

Moey said...

I'm not a football fan, but what the heck, it's the home team. I'm using it as an excuse to eat chicken wings, stuffed potato skins and jalapeno poppers.

Number31 said...

That's the spirit Moey! I got...Indian food and football. But I got chips!

HabsFan29 said...

I've got beer and whiskey. It's a hell of a party around here

That 6 PM start time was a lie.

bea.habs.fan said...

all the pregame stuff has garanteed that I catch the beg of the game.

GYFA
(as per Oman - thanks for pointing out my errrrror)

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

Hey cool, this is a greast band, they're from Nova Scotia, and they get to sing the national anthem at the Grey Cup. That's so awesome for....the THrews? Seriously RDS/TSN/Whoever? Can't we do anything right? This is why we can't have nice things.

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

Also, I know Edmonton isn't exactly a bilingual hotbed, but when you want to introduce players in English and French, it works better if you announce their position and alma mater in each language, AND THEN say their name. Once. Much more effective.

Man I've got to chill out.

ezzeloharr said...

Well, I'm in the basement of the Trottier Engineering building at McGill. I'm supposed to be working on a project... But I think we're going to pull out the vodka and watch the game instead.

I'm a horrible student.

moeman said...

Tikka Masala and Shiraz.

Go you fucking Als!

HabsFan29 said...

AVON CALLING!!!!

moeman said...

TD bitCHes!

moeman said...

29, that was bad, but good, but bad.

bea.als.fan said...

woot woot
gorgeous

ezzeloharr said...

Sweet!

wv: predic. I predic an Als win!

Orangeman said...

Well I'm off to get free drinks from my cousin in exchange for having to watch football. Like Moey, I may not be a football fan, but I'm a Montrealer god damn it. Did I mention the free booze?

@bea: It was just hilarious when I saw it. There really is nothing wrong with associating gays and football. Afterall, it's my gay cousin and his bf who are forcing me to watch this game. He also called my taste in TV shows "kind of gay".

Moey said...

@Orange,

My cousin used to play for the Stampeders. He's not gay. NTTAWWT.

moeman said...

0-man, 'Glee' isn't gay, unless you cry. NTTIAWWT!

moeman said...

@ 7:02

Moey, marry me.

HabsFan29 said...

those Als CHeerleaders looked CHilly

moeman said...

@29, its nippy outside in EDM.

HabsFan29 said...

meh

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

I look at Damon Duval miss a field goal, and I see a used car salesman showing us a lemon, assuring us it's a steal. Then he leans on the bumper and it falls off, and he says "You know what? You look more like an import person. Well if you follow me, I've got a Jap beaut over here that'll knock your socks off."

Flying Toaster said...

Maybe those generous, talented cheerleaders need warming up? Any volunteers?

WV: untame - someone needs to untame those cheerleaders.

Orangeman said...

@Moe: Oh, it wasn't just Glee. My taste gets waaaaaaaaay more gay after that. Project Runway, anyone? And it was while I was trying to convince him to go to Rocky Horror.

Anyway, I'm late for my free booze, errrr, I mean the game of football.

HabsFan29 said...

meh. this won't be easy

iRiRi said...

I can't wait to see all the new commercials at halftime!!

Moey said...

@moeman, are you two-timing? I thought you were engaged to IRiRi.

moeman said...

Moey, iRiRi didn't sign the iPrenup.

bea.als.fan said...

the conversation in here is as interestign as the game.
glad I'm dropping in

moeman said...

Nice name bea.

Flying Toaster said...

@bea - is that sarcasm? Not sure I can tell sarcasm at this point...

HabsFan29 said...

thx bea for waking me up. zzz. gyfa already

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

EXCITEMENT!

iRiRi said...

Prenup? You're damn right I'm not signing any prenup!

HabsFan29 said...

that was just a terrible half of football

Moey said...

Are the Als gonna iCHoke again??

bea.als.fan said...

how frustrating !
I feel like I\m watching Gomez with all these missed opportunities

moeman said...

Almost time for AlmostBTO!

moeman said...

What no overdrive?

iRiRi said...

@moe - Random but you'd probably know: I am using the Internet Tethering feature on my iPhone. Do you know if this is going to incur any extra fees on my bill?

moeman said...

iRi, oh yeah but make sure you have the 6Gb plan or at least the 1.5Gb plan. iSweetieRi, those technical details were in the iPrenup.

(Unless you are downloading lots of video and surfin' like 29 at 5am in the AM, you'll be OK).

moeman said...

Wow, tsn's 'panel' has written off the Als already.

Flying Toaster said...

@moe - 5am in the AM? Really? Hopw much meth was in your icecream?

moeman said...

@FlyToa, a lot.

iRiRi said...

@moe - Thanks! I've got the 1GB plan but mostly use Wi-Fi. Plus, I'm only using the tethering tonight as there is no Wi-Fi where I am.

moeman said...

No probs iRie but remember I CHarge by the hour, minimum 2 hrs, satisfaction guaranteed or I come back for a second visit.

You Go Als, Fuck!

Flying Toaster said...

Oh ma I'm having consecutive heart attacks!

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

Calvillo's spending more time on his knees than MacLean during Coach's Corner.

moeman said...

Good one TheGate.

iRie, merci, hope it doesn't bounce cuz I'll come back for a second visit.

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

RDS, seconds ago: "It doesn't look like it'll be enough, but it might just be enough."

Brilliant.

bea.als.fan said...

kinda nail biting
sort of

then a puke moment: Don Cherry trying to sell me something?

HabsFan29 said...

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

Nothing to say. But wv is "chine". Just "chine".

HabsFan29 said...

fuck yeah!!!

bea.als.fan said...

so no defensive shell in the CFL.
maybe somethign the Habs can learn and apply when they meet the Flyers and lead by 2 !!

moeman said...

No time to count the CHickens. CFL games can be won with no time left.

moeman said...

Sadly, Cuthbert, normally a class act, seems depressed.

iRiRi said...

Remember when the Habs were holding on to that 1-0 lead in the 3rd period of game 7 of the Caps series?

I think my heart is going through the same motions right now.

Kinda.

bea.als.fan said...

you can always count on the Riders to never give up.

bloody hell, but I hate those last minute anything-can-happen games

moeman said...

@iRiRi, "I need a defibrillator. Is there an app for that?"

I CHarge by the hour, minimum two hours.

bea.als.fan said...

moeman said...

HabsFan29 said...

Duval is the Als' Gomez right now. blech

moeman said...

BTW, does this thread count for free ice cream if it goes to 200?

iRiRi said...

I'm afraid it's too late.

iRiRi said...

Clarification: for me, not the Als.

moeman said...

Never too late iRiRi, we can talk about apps all night and put a dent in 29's thick wallet.

Nice game Green Riders, be proud.

Congrats to the entire Montréal Alouettes organization.

Number31 said...

Hey Duval, Durant raised your choke with a bleh!

WOO! PARADE!

Moey said...

I managed to last through the entire game! I'm so proud of me and the Als of course. I guess the parade will take it's usual route...God I hope I'm saying that in June.

ezzeloharr said...

Cohen: "Back to back Grey Cups! Unbelievable!"

Translation: I am so disappoint.

bea.als.fan said...

@ Moey
we all are.

moeman said...

@ezz, despite his French Cohin couldn't have sounded more TinSaNely depressed.

moeman said...

Some people have crazy good sense(s) of humour, saw this good one "Rider Nation wonderbra - lots of support but no cup"

ezzeloharr said...

@moeman: Best joke I heard today - that's amazing.

HabScot said...

Amazing: "Calvillo says there is a possibility it could be cancer. Surgery will take out half his thyroid."

Orangeman said...

1) wOOt!

2) GYFAG was never offensive, just hilarious. It just needed someone to point out.

3) I better see an Airplane! parody here tomorrow. Or, at the very least, a Naked Gun homage.
