I raced home for that? I avoided the score all evening because I was working and had recorded it? I did all that for that?
BC Lions coach Wally Buono said during this ridiculous, unforgiveable display of shameful hockey by the Canadiens that “when you’re not meeting expectations (as a team) you should be criticized.” And that was before there was any score!
I agree with Wally. But I’m not going to criticize. There’s no sense. If the Habs don’t know they stunk the joint out, then it’s a lost cause. Better to let them sort it out themselves over a few beers after the game if they dare show their faces in public.
They began the game by handing on a silver platter to the Vancouver Canucks three goals when the Canucks were allowed to dance in at will like ringers playing kids on a frozen lake. And when the score began to take on a life of it’s own -somewhere around 4-1, I dusted off the fast forward button on the remote and watched in record time the hideous affair stretch all the way to 7-1.
Carey Price was left out to dry, especially on those first three, and with his mom and dad and other family watching in dismay, he and the team self-destructed, and a beautiful homecoming for Price turned into a horrendous nightmare that is sure to leave scars on the entire Price clan for decades to come.
It was an evening that should never be brought up again. Ever. That was more painful than the arthritis I had a couple of years ago.
Why did it have to be Vancouver? Why couldn’t it have been almost anybody else? The opposite was supposed to happen. It’s midnight and I can hear smirking for blocks around me. Right now, as far as hockey games go, that’s about as bad as it gets if you’re a Habs fan. Maybe I should check on how Sri Lanka and the West Indies are doing in cricket.
The team travels to Edmonton for a Saturday night clash with the Oilers. Will Price play and regain his earlier form, or is that just a distant memory now?
Will the team actually rebound and win in Edmonton, or will they get blown out again?
And how long will it take before I forgive them?
Piss on the random notes.
