Something's gotta give........

I was contemplating this for a few days.....
: 
But opted for this instead......
 
Now that I'm thinking more clearly, I got a better sense of what's going on with our Habs last night.  There were two different conversations going on at Chez Moey's on Thursday night (we had company) and it was next to impossible to concentrate on the Habs/Pens game.  Last night I only had Mr. Moey to cope with and  naturally after all these years I've mastered the art of filtering out a lot of it and nodding at the appropriate times.  But I digress.  I watched a team that I thought played as well as they possibly can and yet still can't bag a win.  That has to be frustrating.  You won't hear them say during the post game interviews that the reason they keep losing is because the D corps sucks the big one, but they know it and we know it.  HNIC pointed out that the in our own end the defense squad resembled patrons stumbling out of a bar on Crescent Street at 3 AM.  An apt description.  Can Gauthier afford to wait until Spacek and eventually (fingers crossed) Markov make their way back into the lineup? I don't think so.  And what about Campoli, are there any plans in place to replace him?  Gorges and Gill can only do so much and nobody is capable of getting a first pass out to clear the zone.  That's what's hurting them the most.

Believe it or not, I actually mentioned to Mr. Moey that an emergency call to Patrice Brisboise might be in order.  Seriously. It couldn't make things worse than they already are and I bet he would do it for a couple of free beers and a hotdog.   Something has to happen and soon or the hole they're digging will be so deep that they'll have to swap their hockey helmets for a miner's hat with a halogen light.

Um, what was for dinner?

Which night? Thursday it was pizza and last night was Thai. I didn't make either one. Awesome.

I can handle the Habs not playing well (I still think they can "turn it around") but the most annoying thing is that Leaf fans are walking up and giving me unsolicited advice.

I could take down some of my Habs gear but that would only draw more comments from the Leaf employees (mainly cleaning and mailroom staff - not that there is anything wrong with those jobs, just sayin')

sopes,

leaf fan's giving hockey advice, talk about an oxymoron.

leaf fans aren't hockey fans, just leaf fans.

Moey - this is my first time to your little blog (did that sound condescending - sorry...). thing is...I really like the look and feel of it. Very warm and fussy like. Now normally a handgun pointing at a kitten is not warm and fussy but there was something endearingly cute about that picture.

Just wanted to let you know...very nice...I shall be back for more.

Kmaxx,

Welcome & thank you! I used to review games but there are so many bloggers out there that I would rather just do my own thing in my own way.

Truer words were never spoken.
