Round 1 to the Sox

Well, we got the overhyped 1st Sox/Yanks series out of the way this weekend, and for the most part they were good, entertaining games.  I can’t figure out how Wang threw a complete game 2 hitter when it seemed pretty obvious that his sinker wasn’t working the way it is supposed to (lots of fly-outs).  And the 2 hour delay to see Paplebon absolutely blow away ARod on 3 pitches was absolutely worth the wait.  I couldn’t even stay awake for the whole game last night; it was 7-4 when I fell asleep, and I was happy to see that the tide didn’t turn while I was catching some z’s.

Two game stint with last year’s ALCS opponent and then Round 2 of the overhyped Sox/Yanks games.  After this, they don’t face each other again until July 3rd.

  1. All righty now…Danny boy is in and I wanna chat Bruins vs Habs…but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…
    Fix the room..I am a paid member…I’ve taken the sh*t from others to be here.

    PSF is an ELITEST! He has no idea how the Bread Box of America feels…

    My point in WANTING to chat tonight is:

    I now know how the O’s and Ray’s fans feel when invaded by the “Nation”…It SUCKS!

    Granted the rink in Boston, MA is no longer the GARDEN…But to hear Chara booooooooed every time he touched the puck…Oy.

    To hear the demented chants of the habs blu blanc frig fans chanting and singing drunken bastardized french english sing songs wanted me to take I-95 100 miles to the south and teach those motherless bastard how to breathe out of their hairy stinkin armpits.

    Freakin room…Freakin french speaking hose heads.

    Damn all of you that aren’t respecting the sinking of 96th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

  2. How is it that Spot can log in to post to this forum but can’t log in to chat? I can’t recall Spot chatting at night anyway since he is on “his own time” then. Thought he was just an office chatter.

  3. Habs is an abbreviation of “les habitants,” the informal name given to the original settlers of New France, dating back to the 17th Century. So it’s a natural fit for the The Montreal Canadiens, established in 1909 and marketed as a French-Canadian hockey team.
    Having said that, the nickname might have been the result of an error. According to NHL.com, the first man to refer to the team as “the Habs” was Tex Rickard, owner of Madison Square Garden, in 1924. Rickard apparently told a reporter that the “H” on the Canadiens’ sweaters was for “Habitants.” Not true. The distinctive C-wrapped-around-H logo stands for “Club de Hockey Canadien.” So the Habs should be the “Club de Hockey Canadiens” or simply the Canadiens like they have been called for 80 years now.

  4. If he wasn’t busy changing his spark plugs and working, and of course using us to drive commerce to his website, maybe he could fix the room. Unless of course I have been banned because Bo doesn’t like my theory that Ortiz has spent too much time eating late night hot dogs at the Lucky Lady and is turning into the next Mo Vaughn and reported me…
