Oh, I suppose there’s lots to talk about as we wait another few days before the Habs’ involuntary holiday ends and they finally play hockey again, if they remember how.
There’s the big election in the states involving John McCain and Barack Obama, of course.
There’s the news that the Canadiens have six players on the all-star ballot, including Carey Price, Andrei Markov, Mike Komisarek, Alex Tanguay, Saku Koivu, and Alex Kovalev.
There’s the news that Martin Brodeur is injured, and the strange news that the Leafs are playing an actual brand of hockey right now.
But you can read all this in any newspaper, or see and hear on any talk show. I’d just be rehashing news that’s already out there, and that wouldn’t be fair to you, the readers of this blog, who are the nicest, smartest, kindest, sexiest, most beautiful people in the world.
So I’m just going to pull out the old scrapbook and put a nice picture up instead. It’s the right thing to do. Anything else would be insulting your intelligence.
Maurice Richard, Butch Bouchard, Boom Boom Geoffrion, and Bill Durnan would probably be talking about my blog if three of them weren’t dead.
