Quoting Homer ~ game review

~ Homer quotes à propos last night's loss ~

About bandwagoners; "Operator! Give me the number for 911!"

About the third period; "By their own follies they perished, the fools."

About CHocula's 'System'; "You know, boys, a nuclear reactor is a lot like a woman. You just have to read the manual and press the right buttons."

About FHFers enjoying 4 days off and a shitty loss; "Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose: it's how drunk you get."

About dealing with the losses; "Inflaming wine, pernicious to mankind, Unnerves the limbs, and dulls the noble mind."

About PFK: "Kid, you tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is, never try."

About not enough sexy babe pics: "Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girls sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such." (mildly NSFW)

About mcsplooge; "He knew the things that were and the things that would be and the things that had been before."

About Benoit Brunet's mind: "If something goes wrong at the plant, (don't) blame the guy who can't speak English." 

About making the playoffs; "Dear Lord.. The gods have been good to me. For the first time in my life, everything is absolutely perfect just the way it is. So here's the deal: You freeze everything the way it is, and I won't ask for anything more. If that is OK, please give me absolutely no sign. OK, deal."

About the defense: "Of men who have a sense of honor, more come through alive than are slain, but from those who flee comes neither glory nor any help."

About losing 3 in a row; "D'Oh!"

About team play; "Light is the task where many share the toil."

About slipping towards 8th; "Umm, beer!"

About PFK; "If you are very valiant, it is a god, I think, who gave you this gift."

About last Saturday night; "Yeah Moe that team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked!" 

About the feared collapse; "It was built against the will of the immortal gods, and so it did not last for long."

About the porous defense; "Doughnuts. Is there anything they can't do?"

About losing 3 in a row; "The fates have given mankind a patient soul."

About dealing with the losses; "Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose : its how drunk you get."

About coming back vs. the fucking Bruins; "There is a strength in the union even of very sorry men."

About slipping towards 8th; "Be still my heart; thou hast known worse than this."

In about 7 hours; "Oh, well, of course, everything looks bad if you remember it."

I hope it's a real barn burner like back in the old days when I used to wear an onion on my belt. And not one of them white ones either...

Great Noisettes tune.

Maybe the habs need Martin to tear into them like Boudreau did the caps!

I think even Homer would realize that the future is the future and you need to care about how you prime the flux.
Last years version of the Habs could not mount a 4 game challenge to the philys, and the pholys lost to the hAWKS who very much resembled the Habs. Their best player is 5' 4".

This year we have the TFS, who I gotta say is not as good as Jaro in shutdown perfection. A better goalie yes but Jaro never lets in the easy ones Price does. Now Price you cant beat high like Jaro as easy. I like TFS over Jaro as goalie.
The fucking fact is that we can win the cup if we can have a team that beats the phily flyers. So far so good in the season.
