Pretty Sure You’re Going To Have A Great Year

Happy New Year from me, Gaston, Jack Schitt, and Little Dennis.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to lose ten pounds. If I could just do this, I’d be able to see my shoes again. Another resolution is to win the lottery. Then there’s that plan to walk, just once, the 32 kilometers to work to see if I can do it.

Habs in Sunrise, Florida, not far from Miami, to take on the Panthers and hopefully continue their new and improved play seen in the last two games. Canada’s juniors play the USA at the same time, and although the Americans haven’t had a good tournament, I’m sure they’ll be pumped to play the Canadians.

So it’s a fine night of hockey coming up.

Monday is the Winter Classic between the Rangers and Flyers and they’re talking of mild weather in Philadelphia which could ruin the whole thing. That’s fine by me because I think the whole concept is stupid. Not only are these games at the mercy of Mother Nature, but you’ve got a rink in the middle of a ball park or football field, and the seating starts so far away that those in the first row need binoculars. Those in the upper reaches of the stands need Hubble space telescopes.

Something inside me is yearning for a great thaw on this day. Maybe I shouldn’t think this way. Maybe I’m just miserable. But I think these things are, like I said, stupid.

Once again, Happy New Year. Hope you don’t get the flu even once. And I looked into my crystal ball and saw that 2012 is going to be your best year in a long time. Every night will be like the night you and that special someone found yourself in the back of a Volkswagen van with Barry White crooning through the speakers.

  1. Hey Dennis, I am hoping that 2012 is a very good year as well,Gary Bettman retires from the nhl due to an injury he recieved when Bill Daly’s head exploded and he was hit with the fallout.I dont expect this to happen so any of your politically correct visitors shouldnt get upset.I hope that some rules in hockey will revert back to the way they were before these two idiots took over,the injury and concussion rate would certainly drop if they brought in the red line and got rid of the trapezoid behind the nets.I’m sure if they had softer shoulder and elbow pads things would be different as well.Lets hope the game between Canada and usa wont turn into a slug fest with the american team trying to take out our guys.Happy New year to you and Luci
    and to all who frequent this space.

  2. Dennis I agree with you that the Winter Classic and the Heritage Classic games are just money-making publicity stunts and pointless spectacles. Remember the horrible match the Habs played outdoors in the Calgary slush last year? That’s not hockey.

    Sometimes I wish Jack Schitt, Gaston and Little Dennis were running the league. Stay tuned. Bettman and his gang have even crazier plans in the works.

    From Yahoo Sports:

    “And there’s evidence that the concept of a Winter Classic can only get sillier. George Richards of the Miami Herald reported Friday that the people in south Florida are thinking about staging an outdoor game in the Marlins new ballpark”:


    Dennis, to you and Luciena, and to everyone who frequents this wonderful site:

    Have a happy

  3. Ooops. The image didn’t come out. It was some ASCI text that spelled out Happy New Year 2012 in fancy letters.

    I’ll try one more time…


  4. Happy New Year Dennis and everyone here. Let’s hope 2012 is a much better one for us Habs fans then 2011 has been!

    Yet another sad, depressing game. God damn it.

  5. Happy new year Dennis and everyone. Thanks for another terrific year of wonderful stories, opinions, comments, predictions and recaps. This site makes the wins that much sweeter and the losses a little more bearable. Hopefully all our troubles have ended along with 2011. With today’s good news the new year is off to a good start, now just transfer it onto the ice.

  6. Thanks Chris. I appreciate it very much, and yes, maybe the Gorges signing is the beginning of good things. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
