In this corner, wearing the blue, white, and red trunks, standing 5’11′ and weighing 197 lbs, from Montreal Quebec……. Michel (Mike) Therrien!
And in the other corner, wearing some kind of pink frilly thing, standing 6 ft. and weighing 205 pounds, (or 190 clean shaven), from Grostenquin France and Antigonish, Nova Scotia,…….Paul (the Walrus) MacLean!
Okay men, I want a clean fight. May the best man win.
Let’s get ready to rumble!!!!!!!!!!!!
The crowd is stunned. Horrified. The Walrus’ eyeballs are bugging out. It’s insane. Stop the fight! It’s too hideous to look at this poor fighter right now. Put an end to this madness before any more damage can be inflicted to his face. Women are screaming. It’s horrible. People are throwing up. Some have fainted. Walrus looks like he’s been hit in the face by a sledgehammer. He’s in trouble. This can’t go on. We hope and pray he’s okay.
Oh. Wait a minute…..The fight hasn’t started yet.
Brendan Gallagher is one of three finalists for the Calder Trophy, which comes as no surprise to any Habs fan. The guy has been one of the team’s most important players this season. He’s been fantastic, a ball of fire, a crowd-raiser. Good for the other two rookies for becoming finalists, but our guy deserves to win. There can be no doubt. And I’m not biased.
Thanks to Danno for sending this – Gallagher a finalist.
The Montreal Canadiens owe me thirty dollars.
I had several Habs in my hockey pool, and was enjoying being in first place by a good margin. But when the team began their slump late in the season, the guy in second place began to make strides. In the end, he caught me and won by one point, all because Price and the others stopped getting me points.
Of course the difference between first place and second was only thirty bucks, but regardless, I would have won if they hadn’t been so shitty near the end.
I fully expect huge games from David Desharnais and Michael Ryder on Tuesday night. Goodness knows they’ve had enough rest.
I have an old friend named Rugger, a great guy, and one who doesn’t mind poking fun at his team, the Leafs. He sends this:
Of course, he also sent this, which I’m not happy about.
