A Whale Of A Sign
I saw four whales at work the other day, spouting water high into the air and diving under with their big tails following their huge bodies into the drink, and I know what it means.
Other than I’m a lucky guy for seeing this mesmorizing sight, I think it’s a sign that the Bruins won’t win their tenth straight tonight. Ten straight. Gimme a break. Or the Leafs, now in second place in the east with 26 points (behind Pittsburgh with 27), are about to fall back to earth with a thud any day now. Leafs in second place. Gimme another break.
Maybe it means that Toronto’s Phil Kessel, with the most points in the league with 30, and his teammate Joffrey Lupul in 2nd with 26, are about to be suspended after being busted for cross-dressing at a Hell’s Angel party..
Isn’t it an old native proverb, that when four whales are sighted at Saltery Bay ferry terminal, some on top must soon fall hard and heavy?
I hope it also means the Habs beat Carolina tonight, because as lacklustre as the Hurricanes have looked lately, they’re only two points behind Montreal. Imagine, Carolina is in second-last place in the east and are only two points behind the Habs.
We should expect a big game from Erik Cole tonight as he returns to his previous place of employment. But lately we’ve been getting big games from this guy every night, so it should come as no surprise. And I still wonder why Jacques Martin didn’t seem overly-enthusiastic about Cole in the beginning, giving him minimal ice time on the power play and such. The guy’s a star, and even if he had a slightly slow start, Martin’s seen him around the league for years and should have known what this player can bring to the table.
But Jacques knows now. I guess he was given a sign.
