The Middle Of Summer

I’m now going to tell you that I’ve lost 10 pounds in the last 15 days due to walking a lot. At least several miles every day, at a decent clip.

I’m telling you this because there’s no Habs news to discuss. All’s quiet on the front. No Subban, Gomez, Shane Doan, or trade winds. No news of Youppi getting neutered or word on the stick boy job. It’s as dog days as it can be.

My beer gut has gone way down and I can almost do up my sports jacket. It’s almost embarrassing to walk around so svelt.

I’ve read that Alexander Galchenyuk has serious plans on making the team this fall and I hope he does. I think it would be tremendously exciting to have this fellow up and at ’em and playing well. He’s probably a year or so away, I suppose, but stranger things have happened.

A couple of times I’ve walked seven miles at a good clip and it just about killed me. No pain, no gain. I hate that saying. If there’s a God, why does it have to hurt to look good?

If Galchenyuk actually wins a spot, surely it bumps Gomez off the face of the earth. And how come Subban is taking his sweet time in signing? Is he doing it on purpose?

I read that stopping eating three hours before bedtime and going to bed hungry is an excellent habit to get into if trying to lose weight. That’s a tough one. What about my late-night cherry pie, chocolate, and beer?

I can’t even go into anything. You already know about the Richard Riot and Plante’s mask and Lafleur’s goals against Boston and Patrick forcing a trade and all the rest of it.

There’s just no news.

I’m going for a walk.

  1. Wow Dennis, you’re on a roll, 10 pounds already. Soon you’ll be needing to borrow the extra weight of others to burn off. Well, I have a few extra, that I’d be more than happy to give you. While you burn them off, I’ll head to Tim’s for a healthy breakfast doughnut.

  2. Thanks for the offer, Chris. Maybe I’ll go to Tims for a chocolate doughnut! I’m starving.

  3. It is harder to keep it off than to take it off, so to ease your burden why not switch to “DKRFSB lite” It works for most.

  4. It’s the middle of summer, which can only mean one thing.

    It’s time for another Britney Spears quote:

    “Yeah, I love ponytails. I’m a wash-and-go girl. But, oh yeah, I like to whip it.”

  5. Excellent, Danno. I hope this encourages others to send their Britney quotes. We learn from these. She’s almost like a combination Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

  6. Hobo, yes, I think DKRFSB Lite is a great idea. I recomment just 12 a day in the beginning, and increase to 15 in a week or so.

  7. All I know about Britney Spears is Baby, baby, hit her one more time. That seems awfully violent, so I prefer to Whip It per Devo

    crack that whip
    give the past the slip
    step on a crack
    break your momma’s back
    when a problem comes along
    you must whip it
    before the cream sits out too long
    you must whip it
    when something’s going wrong
    you must whip it

    now whip it
    into shape
    shape it up
    get straight
    go forward
    move ahead
    try to detect it
    it’s not too late
    to whip it
    whip it good

  8. It’s a little-known fact:

    DKRSFB is the only beer sold in Canada with the Poison Control Centre’s phone number printed right on the label.
