Carey Price Understands The Meaning Of TANK

What a beautiful game last night for our lord and savior Mr. Price.

Carey faced 24 shots, and he knew exactly what had to be done at this point of the season.....let in as many as possible!

Forget the fact that your team just put up 56 shots at home.  Was I even alive the last time the Habs put up 56 shots in a game?

I have no idea what Drouin and Pacioretty were thinking scoring that late in the game.  The 2 points to the opposing team were nearly in hand!

Thank god we had Carey Price in net to bail us out and get the Islanders those 2 huge points.  You can't give up those 2 points at home.  Would be a huge mistake!   

A big shout out to John Tavares (who should be a Hab by now if not for our GM). for that OT goal.

Onto the next one.  Who wants 2 points?

Tanks on baby!

This Weeks Don't Look Now Team : The Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames have shot themselves up the standings and are currently on a 7 game winning streak!

Again, like last weeks don't look now team, the Flames are squeaking out wins against some of the leagues best teams including the Blackhawks, Kings, Ducks, Lightning, Wild, Panthers, and Hurricanes. 

This Flames team was built for the road.  They hardly lose when away from the Saddle Dome.  It's a shame the experts would rather talk about Jagr and the mess that has become.  They should be talking about how Johnny Hockey, All Star Snub Sean Monahan, and Matthew Tkachuck are tearing up Alberta hockey and SportsCentre highlight reels.  

Since every rock solid team in the league is hitting their bye week we won't see the Flames play again until Saturday against the rock solid Winnipeg Jets.  That'll be a great Hockey Day in Canada matchup.

Yesterday I Tried To Lower My Heart Rate And Then NFL Sunday Happened

Ever since Christmas I'm terribly out of shape.  I documented this a couple weeks ago in a post about running 7 K and then suffering 24 hours of painful regret.

Yesterday I thought I'd nestle in for an AFC Divisional game that would be anything but spectacular, and then Leo Fournette decided to have a career game and yes, Bortles wasn't bad either as the Jaguars SOMEHOW beat the Steelers to advance to the AFC Championship Game.  

THEN the Vikings get a solid 17-0 lead with a defense that is rock solid.  So what do I do?  I flip the channel...

By the time I tuned back into FOX the game was 21-20 Saints as Drew Brees just threw a clutch TD with about 3 minutes left.  

The next 30 minutes of my life are a bit of a blur.  Somehow the Vikings get back into FG position, and nail it, making the game 23-21 Vikings.  And then on a legendary 4th down Brees hits his man for FG position, and a clutch kick from Lutz to basically win the game for the Saints.  I'm already planning my Patriots vs. Saints slug fest at this point.

Case Keenum and Stefon Diggs with hardly any time on the clock and no time outs.....MONEY.  I was actually yelling at Diggs to get out of bounds to stop the clock and then I realized he was all alone going for the end zone.

What a day of football.  Can't wait until 3 PM Sunday.

I Watched Lady Bird Last Week And It Wasn't Horrible

Last week I decided it was time I put in the hour and a half and watch Lady Bird.

Saoirse Ronan is a great up and coming actress.  She was amazing in Brooklyn in 2015 and her performance in Lady Bird was incredible.

Set in 2002/2003 Lady Bird is a examination of a teenage girl who comes of age over her senior year of high school and first year away at college.  With the current social climate there is no surprise that this movie is being rocketed to the front runners list at the Oscars this year.  However, over the past couple of years I have seen some other coming of age films that are also great. 

Grandma (2015) and The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015) come to mind as deserving of more recognition than what they received.  Maybe if those movies came out in 2017 they would be our Lady Bird.

What sets Lady Bird above those movies (arguably) is an incredible final 30-40 minutes of the film. 

Top Movies (that i've seen so far) 2017

  1. Get Out
  2. Baby Driver
  3. Lady Bird
  4. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  5. Logan Lucky

Lets Get Behind Canada's Olympic Team

I could easily sit here and rip each of these guys.  I'm not going to do this.

These are our boys who are going for Gold this year, which sucks, but it's happening.  

Now is the time to rally around these "5th" liners as we cheer on Team Canada at absurd hours of the morning in South Korea.  

Should be a lot of fun!

Kahlua anyone?

Is This The Worst Song of All Time?

Ever wonder what Bruno Mars mixed with Daft Punk would sound like?  Me either.

This electro garbage is the worst song ever made.  Hands down.
