How Ya Feelin Hab Fans?

We all know that many Montreal fans crawled out from under their rock to cheer hard for their team in the playoffs. There is no doubt the only reason why the Canadiens got as far as they did was the play of Jaroslav Halak. Without him, the Habs likely wouldn't have got past Washington. It had many wondering, including myself, just where Carey Price would end up. It looks as if he will end up being the starting goalie for the Habs.
When I heard that Halak had been traded to the St. Louis Blues, I went "huh!". When I saw that the Blues gave up no current roster players just prospects, I went "WTF?!". There has to be something more to this that hasn't come out yet, but what. Did Halak demand a trade? As a restricted free agent, did Montreal know someone was going to sign him to an offer sheet they would not match? Is this a case of clearing cap room to get a guy like Evgeni Nabokov? Whatever it is, Montreal hockey fans are some kind of pissed and I really can't blame them.

Burritos and Coronas all around. How about Mexico beating France at the World Cup? This World Cup is not going the way people thought it would. Argentina and Germany look to be the best teams, but we have a long ways to go.

After seeing this, its obvious we need more shots of the fans at the World Cup.

Rider fans are breathing a lot easier knowing Weston Dressler has signed a contract extension. It sounds like this deal is very similar to the one Andy Fantuz had. That being WD7 is more than welcome to seek employment in the NFL at the end of this season, but if it doesn't happen then he comes back. This just in. I like Dressler's chances of being in the NFL a lot more than that of Fantuz's. As I've stated before, Andy is a great talent, but he's not fast enough to be a wideout and he's not big enough to be a tight end in the NFL. Dressler is fast enough to be a Wes Welker type player in the NFL. Enjoy him this year because he might not be back.

The Lakers beat the Celtics to win the NBA title. Excuse me while I barf! At least it didn't come down to Mr. Petulance hitting a shot at the buzzer. I really thought that was going to happen.
----
Why was Magic Johnson allowed to perform verbal fellatio on the entire Lakers organization at the end of the game? HOLY CRAP! Was Larry Bird ready to do the same thing had the Celtics won. I think not!
-----
If the Lakers are commemorated on a Wheaties box, should Ron Artest be commemmorated on a Fruit Loops box? Did you see his rather "bizarre" post-game interview. He thanked his psychiatrist. That might be a first!

Was Phil Mickleson that bad Thursday at the US Open. When does Mike Weir blow up? Where is Tiger anyhoo?
-----
What's the latest on Brett Favre?

The rain held off long enough for the Red Sox to club Weyburn 14-9. David Fox and Mitch McDonald each homering for the winners. Those two have been lethal to start the season. Regina is 8-1 on the year. Its about time Regina started noticing this team and supporting this team.
----
Speaking of the rain, where is it? Has the forecast failed again? I know this rain sucks, but look at it this way.....it could be snow!

The ESPN 30 for 30 show on the OJ Simpson bronco chase might be one of the best hours of television I have ever seen. Watch this show if you get a chance!

As you go into your Friday, I give you this.

Anyone who takes himself too seriously always runs the risk of looking ridiculous; anyone who can consistently laugh at himself does not.

How am I feeling as a Habs fan...meh...no effect. The Habs knew after that run he'd be asking for quite a price, and just because he's been performing in the playoffs doesn't mean he'll have a great regular season. He's been mediocre at best and the same can be said for Price. I draw your attention to the Hamilton Bulldogs who have consistently been at the top of the AHL. Just as in baseball it is better to develop from within....

Besides...it's freaking JUNE...to hell with hockey already...CFL, Aussie Rules, World Cup...come on...enough about hockey...I'm sick of it.

C'mon, you loved Kobe cuddling up to that trophy. Lebron who? Michael who? He is the greatest. You can't argue that!

I think Pedersen is stealing pictures from this blog to put on his own. That picture of the Brazilian girl makes it OK though. She is some kinda hot and I'm guessing down there would be considered as average.

Get back on the Cage!! I love you on there and its better than listening to that other crap you used to be involved with.
