I also learned (for damn sure) that I believe in the Canadiens more than I believe in their fans. Did no one understand the "Rise Together" slogan?
In any case, it's been a great week for hockey. Unless you count that protest.
+ LARS ELLER HAT TRICK! LARS ELLER PENALTY SHOT GOAL AFTER A HAT TRICK! LARS ELLER BEING HAPPIER THAN A PURRING KITTEN AFTER FOUR GOALS!! Okay, I'll stop yelling at you. I'm just really happy about this.
+ Alexei Emelin proves that he won't give up on this team as easily as some of the fans did (or almost did), by playing the day after he takes a puck to the face.
+ 2 Shane Doan scored his first hat trick (first. I know.) and Jarome Iginla got his 500th career goal. Their smiles say everything about their accomplishments. And about how much we all love them.
|(via All Habs) This is where our province's priorities are.|
- The fact that people would have a protest because they're unhappy about seeing an anglophone with a job is just atrocious. I don't even want to talk about it.
- Prayers for Jack Jablonski, who was seriously injured during a high school hockey game this week but is thankfully already making great strides toward recovery. I love this sport but I hate how dangerous it can be.
- What, they couldn't put Kelly Clarkson in any sketches during SNL this week? Maybe people didn't notice, but Charles Barkley is not a comedian.
This week, I'm hoping to avoid any resurrection of the Price-Halak debate because enough already and nice to see you again, Jaro.
