A Big Game At The Bell, Which You Already Know About

The Canadiens take to the ice tonight against the Winnipeg Jets, and we all know what an important game this is considering the Habs have been skydiving to earth with a flimsy parachute.

But there’s nothing I can add to what has and is being written everywhere I look. And to paraphrase that great Habs fan Bob Dylan, I’m not going to “simplify the Habs, classify them, deny or crucify them. Analyse, categorize, finalize, or advertise them. Disgrace them or displace them, define or confine them. Select them or dissect them, or inspect them or reject them. All I really want to, is baby, be fans of them.”

So having said that, and because there’s nothing I can add to what has already been said a million times, I’ll just post a couple of old Rocket Richard hockey cards I have. They’re in terrible shape but I don’t care. Because I’m not going to dissect, inspect, or reject them.

The Rocket and Elmer Lach card is from 1953-54. The other is from 1954-55.

  1. I am so jealous of your collection. Sigh.

    Dennis, I’m your long lost son and I’m coming to move in with you dad. I look forward to checking out the Habs stuff…oops, I mean family history….uh, see you soon? 🙂

    I’d like to have a win tonight. It’d make a nice change of pace. If we lose, the Bell Centre is going to turn ugly and for once it won’t be because the Bruins are in town.

  2. Darth, my long-lost son! When you come, please bring lots of money so you can take care of dear old dad and let him retire.

  3. Ha ha ha. You got it “dad”. 🙂

    Let’s both retire and force ourselves to enjoy a life of leisure.

    I will do one thing though: I will follow the Habs everywhere during the season. Go to every single game in the schedule!

  4. Darth and Dennis, following the Habs lately is not exactly what I would call a life of leisure.

    But tonight is the first game of the new year.

    Maybe the Habs can stop sucking and blowing leads all the time.

    Which reminds me…

    You know the expression: “You can’t suck and blow at the same time.” Well, the Habs just proved that to be wrong.

  5. Thanks Dennis.

    It’s easy!

    Just type : followed by – followed by ) and it will make a little smiley face which your blog software recognizes as an emoticon and makes the little image of a happy face.

  6. Darth, all that money to follow the Habs every game? …….Okay, I’m in. We only live once.

  7. All the Hab haters must be pissed off.

    They heard the Habs are having all kinds of bad luck and a horrible time this season. But when they check out DK’s blog all they see is happy faces all over the place.

    We’re just like the Whos down in Whoville who kept on singing and dancing even though the Grinch stole all their presents.

    Except we’re the Habs down in Habsville, but close enough 🙂

    Lars Eller Baby!
