Go Habs!



A clash between a giant hedgehog and penguins, hmmm....probably hasn't happened before so all bets are off.

Just in case you haven't read it, Red Fisher writes a good piece on Chris Nilan in the Gazette today.  I really hope Chris manages to stay on the straight and narrow this time, he's a good guy.

It really bothers me when I read some people's disparaging comments about Red Fisher and his column, he's in his eighties for God's sake, at the very least show some respect for your elders.  Yes, he's old school, no nonsense and at times unforgiving, but I would give my right blogging arm to have his memories, his first night on the beat was covering the Richard riot.  Imagine.

Moey, thanks for the link to the Nilan story. Now that shoplifting thing a year or two ago starts to make sense. My friend Gary Lupul, who played for the Canucks and is no longer with us, went through many of the same problems Nilan's gone through. It hits home very much.

It's just such a waste amd the thing is in the end they're the only ones who can fix it. I'm rooting for him.
