Wow! NOAR! I hear it's hot this week back home. It wasn't over here...until I opened SF! Thanks for that Moeman! You are the best.
Talk about Armageddon, Atlantic Canada cut off from cell phone service, bank debit transactions, even airlines shut down. Fuck, the Man owns us now. But, this old-timer still carries cash and a cell phone is just a convenience not a necessity. I can still hunt and fish and forage for berries if I have to...Nice SF btw. OK, carry on folks nuthin' to see here.
Damp, muggy day so I'm watching some golf. Our Canadian boy though never challenged has remained in the top 8 range for the past 2 days and not a moment of airtime. They will show his playing partners then rapidly move off him if the camera should catch a glimpse of had win. Very odd - haven't seen active non showing of a player like that. Get to see the odd shot of the likes of Speith, 10 shots back though.Hockey? I like Wilde but can't bring myself to spend even $30 to read about BBB'S team. In the end he does opinion pieces which we have plenty of on this fine blog.Football only a month away though.
Mostly negative IMO, Wilde leans more positive which I find refreshing.
sexy mid summer day. its a civic holiday in the the most important province, where most the people who want to CHange Canada into the US where born. Did you know Stephen Harper and two serial killers went to the same high school at the same time allededlyy.Anyway I think CHange has come at last to Le Habitats and we will embrace it with a parade.GOT episode 4, I will watch it 4 times, I loved it two times two baby.
It was OK, I guess. The last 10 or 15 minutes saved it, otherwise, meh.
RIP Glen CampbellAnother voice the autotuner will never capture
The Rhinestone Cowboy left a legacy that will live in country music forever. He kicked Alzheimers ass for a good long time. RIP Glenn Campbell
We're gonna get Tavaris.I can feel it.Go Habs
Always appreciated Glenn Campbell’s artistry. May he Rest In Peace.
Paul Westerberg wrote him a song for his last recording! RIP Mr. Campbell. Official video here.
Over at the toronto sports network the headline is "Chris Cry-der, master of redirecting pucks". They forgot to add "and injuring goalies". Stupid fucks.
A quote from Theo Fleury and I have to agree with the coaching part, I've said for years that "systems" and coaching have been the ruination of hockey.“The game is wayyy, wayyy too over-coached,” Fleury said to Sharp magazine’s Dave McCarthy on Wednesday. “It’s almost like coaches are playing Xbox with these guys. IPads on every bench now. It really takes individuality out of the game.”The league still has a few characters who call back to that bygone era, according to Fleury, but they’re certainly tougher to find.“That’s why I love guys like P.K. Subban, who have their own personality and beat to their own drum,” Fleury said. “There’s definitely a lack of that now. If you look at my era, you had all these characters who played, like Jeremy Roenick and Marty McSorley. They were different guys and said what was on their mind and wore their hearts on their sleeves.“There were a lot of colourful people in the game. Now, when you listen to interviews with so many young guys, it’s all clichés.”
RIP Bryan Murray. He was a great team builder and seemed like a genuinely good human being.
RIP, he was a great hockey man.
I am down to wondering of JDR likes seal. We have a buffet full of bottom six and a top six minus four players. How you going to go when then come with a gun, with you hands in the air or fingeringan armilite. Thats our 2017/2018 season preview
Eric has brothers.
Just finished watCHing Goon II . Epic, maybe the best Canadian movie ever. For sure the best Canadian Hockey movie ever.
Not Hurley'sA new gathering place that will provide guests with the ultimate sports viewing experience, the Bell Centre location will include the latest technology in laser projections, a 4K-quality 46′ X 20′ main screen – the first of its kind in Canada – and over 65 HD TVs, fed by the most comprehensive sports broadcast package available.
Let's hope they have something worthwhile to show on those big screens.
Our FHF friend the estimable HF29 is going to be teaching at McGill. The Paper CHase was a great movie and I know there will be a sequel made to be won:the Data CHase starring old 29. The crew asks him to stop blinking:)
Not 29 but I was Well Well Wellas Hartio wouldsay I seewe have an overwhelmingmajoritywhy is impregnatinga lawyerlike the big bangtheroythere is onlya infatisimale chanceof making lifethinking aboot lawyers, as usual I go on and on.
The Sea Dogs opened rookie camp today, hockey is not too far off.I guess the big question is what is Bergy going to do with all that cap space? Hire 29?
Is DDD still available?
Oilers ink Disrelli eight years 8.5. Game of Thrones ep 5 on the interwebs, its great, HBO needs a good lawyer with cybersecurity cred. Clown T gets what he wants, Black leaders call for statues of slave presidents to be torn down, but why does he want it?
So, I guess HBO didn't pay the ransom?
Yes its a real Game of Thrones, one of the nephews has been killed and another in prisonawaiting the next negotiations. What is interesting from the real view of the world is that the first ransom was widely publicized. This one crickets. The reasons for this are of course just the anomalies of a free press.
Just getting back from a mostly not-connected vacation ...
Just an FYI/update that as part of the union negotiation team at the University, we are in a holding pattern as we await a vote on lockout/strike, this Friday. The last two weeks have been crazy.
Good luck with everything!
I guess they are playing hockey in Russia already. General Vodkov with an assist last night for Ak Bars Kazan.
