The Montreal Canadiens are now down 3-1 in their series against the Philadelphia Flyers. While one can argue that they have actually outplayed the Flyers, they haven't been able to put the puck into the net, plain and simple. And now I go back to a few years ago when Montreal was down 3-1 against the Bruins. They managed to come back and win three in a row. Here's hoping history repeats itself.

...the story of the sick 74-year-old Austrian who kept his daughter locked up in the cellar for years and fathering children with her gets no coverage. Hail to the American Wasteland.

The New Slut

Our friends to the South haven't had much to talk about in the entertainment world ever since the Great American Hero Britney Spears appears to actually be turning her life around. Paris Hilton is back to her partying ways but at least she isn't driving much. Lindsay Lohan will be back in rehab soon but she's keeping it quiet. Britney's sister will be on maternity leave soon. All is well in the Land of Skankville.

And then, as if on cue, the world awaits the new issue of Vanity Fair featuring the 15-year-old Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) in a series of "tasteful" photos showing her bare back. The pedophiles of the world aren't going to sleep much tonight. Vanity Fair will probably sell more issues than they have for a long time. Miley will begin her obviously planned transformation from Mickey Mouse Club member (oh sorry, Hannah Montana star, no difference really) into slut. In her next interview she will claim to not be a virgin. Pretty soon she'll be caught coming out of a limousine without underwear. She could possibly shave her head and perhaps she may hit cars with her umbrella. Gee, I swear this sounds familiar.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Yes, I went out for dinner and movie in the middle of a playoff game involving the Montreal Canadiens. But when your favorite team falls behind 2-0 for the third straight game you may decide to do other things. So I went to Earl's with Lily and then we went to see this comedy. It was your standard Judd Apatow comedy with some silly comedy but it wasn't as funny as Superbad or Knocked Up. Mila Kunis did look quite ravishing in the movie though.

"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction"; something about the Law of Equilibrium. Anyways, just a few weeks ago we got our Profit Sharing cheques from work, and it was very nice. However, this week I have to bring my beloved blue Honda Fit in for repairs, and it will pretty much erase what has been in my bank account for the last few weeks. That's the way it is.

Night Shift

I spent the last two nights on the evening shift, quite the rarity for me. If I recall, they were only the third and fourth night shifts I've had since the transfer to Fraser Downs end of November. I felt a bit weird as I had to get in the groove, but everything turned out OK. It was nice to see the night time crew, as I hadn't seen some of them in a while.

And now, back to Game 1 of the Montreal-Philadelphia series. GO HABS GO

Momentary Relaxation

What a game 7. The Habs win! And now I have a few days to relax before they play again (either against Philadelphia or New York). Today I remember what it is like to be a Habs fan. The scene at the Molson Centre was amazing. Past legends such as Jean Beliveau, Ken Dryden, and Frank Mahovlich were there. Even ex-prime minister Jean Chretien was there. And I'll have to say, probably the Forum Ghosts from the past were there.

It's mid-April which in Canada means the beginning of the NHL playoffs. My beloved Montreal Canadiens had jumped out to a 3-1 series lead but they've lost the last two games against Boston so the series is now 3-3. The seventh and deciding game is tomorrow, it's all or nothing. It was a big letdown for me yesterday in what was in all honesty a very exciting third period. But the end result was not what I'd wanted it to be. But now I have to forget it and pour my heart out again tomorrow. GO HABS GO.

88 Minutes

It was a tough choice for my movie this week, as previously posted. However, it seemed that Zombie Strippers wasn't out yet in Canada, so I decided to choose the Al Pacino flick. It was a standard whodunnit with nothing spectacular. Pacino played Pacino and that's about it. There were some decent supporting role performances from Leelee Sobieski and Debra Kara Unger.

Life in Richmond

I'm pretty much settled into my new place in Richmond, even though I still have a lot of unpacking to do. Currently I'm in the midst of building my Ikea MALM drawer, after which I will get some bookshelves. It's been relaxing so far and I look forward to my three days off. I'm enjoying the NHL playoffs (more so since the Habs are up 2-0 in the series). Things are cool.

Zombie Strippers

Maybe I'm looking forward to seeing the movie version of Mamma Mia! more than anything this year but the testosterone-driven male beast in me is surely waiting to see Zombie Strippers, starring (in her first MAINSTREAM role) the incomparable Jenna Jameson. Get the Oscar speech ready! I know what I'll be doing on April 18.

Forum Ghosts

And now, for all Canadians, the 3-month religious holiday known as the NHL playoffs begin. I am very excited this year as my beloved Montreal Canadiens are first in the East and have a good chance to be there in the end. My cousin has a nice bet from Vegas for Montreal to win, and of course I hope he does. I don't have time to rag on the so-called Vancouver "fans", instead I will ask the Forum Ghosts to come back and bring the Cup back to Montreal. I've already stopped shaving and won't start until Montreal is out. That could be three months from now so it will be interesting to see how I look.

I guess I should have been more prepared for my move, as I left everything to the last moment. As a result, the move was very stressful and tiring. But all is said and done now and I am writing from my new digs in Richmond. All is good in the world now. I got my tax refund and profit sharing from work on the same day. I'm very tired from all the work and lack of sleep in the last two days but I will survive.

What is the definition of a fan (in terms of sports)? Is it not someone who is fanatic or finds enjoyment in cheering for a team? So why is it that every time I go to a Vancouver Canucks game (or listen to so-called Canuck fans), all I hear are insults hurled at the other team? As stated I was at the Calgary-Vancouver game, and probably 80% of the screaming and yelling were just insults directed at the Flames. Maybe they should use their energy to CHEER for their team? Roberto Luongo is one of the best goalies in the league but the only praise you hear from the FANS is a spattering of "LOOOOOOO" after a save. But Mikka Kiprusoff kept getting "KIPPER SUCKS" throughout the game.

Don't claim to be a fan if you don't even know what that means. I have been a Montreal Canadiens FAN for 36 years. I cheer on my favorite team to victory, instead of making fun of the other team.

If I know the so-called Canuck "supporters" reading this blog, the first thing they want to do at this moment is make some insult about Montreal. Go right ahead, at least I'm a FAN.
