Goodbye, bitCHes


Your momma always said to go out with a bang. So, BANG.

More than four years ago, three idiots and me decided the internet needed a blog about the Habs that was funny, hateful, and told the honest truth about the Habs' suckitude (at the time). We also thought the internet had a shortage of half-naked CHicks that needed to be remedied. 2375 posts later, I would say we succeeded on both fronts.

Four years and 2375 posts is a long fucking time.

I've had a recurring thought lately as I've laid (lied? lain?) on the couch taking meth - when does a blog end? Now, I'm not talking about the professional bloggers who make a living at it; Puck Daddy will be around long after the nuclear war that kills the rest of us. But we're not professional bloggers. We make our living being pond scum lawyering types, or whatever the hell moe does. We blog for fun, and to have a creative outlet not present in suing the pants off someone. Any creative outlet has an ending. A novel has an end. A CD only has so many tracks. A movie's credits will roll eventually. A blog doesn't seem to have an end; it could theoretically go on forever.

And that's a problem.

Two of our closest spiritual hockey blogging brothers have come to end. Both of them came to an end after about four years. There must be something to that number, because dammit, after four years here, it's just time. The "this is fun / this is work" balance that most amateur bloggers deal with has finally tipped over to the this is work side. That blows.

So far, this has been just a long-winded roundabout bullshit way of saying we're tired. The thought of blogging another season was just too much to bear. Yes it's fun, and you guys are all awesome, but if we're losing our passion, the blogging is gonna suffer. We refuse to let that happen. Better to burn out quickly than to fade away, always leave 'em wanting more, go out on top, etc.

As this blog is not just me (thank God, or I would have been so tired I would have closed it down two years ago), I gave everyone a chance to write something one last time. Here's what they came up with:

HF10
Since last year's Stanley Cup final, thugs have destroyed Vancouver's downtown and irreparably damaged the city's reputation, the best and most exciting player in the game has announced he won't be ready for the start of the season because of recurring issues after a concussion brought on by a cheap shot, three separate "enforcer" type players have tragically passed away and an entire hockey franchise was wiped out in a horriffic plane crash in Russia. Clearly, the hockey gods are angry that the Bruins won, and I'm not tempting fate by writing on this blog for one more goddamn second.

LG77
OMG PONIES!!!!1!!!!!1 YOU GUYS I am soooooo looking forward to FHF's new season!!! My doctor gave me this shiny new set of pills and it means that I'm going to be totally positive about everything about the Habs because, people are right, this team is going to win the STANLEY CUP BABY ZOMG!!! I didn't pay attention last year, but I assume that a totally deserving team won it, 'cause, like, jerks never get rewarded for their jerkery, right? And this year, we're going to be the bestest ever because Markov has a bionic knee that will turn him into, like, the Steve Austin of hockey and now that Colin Campbell is gone Shanahan is totally going to make sure that when people goon it up against the Habs that they're called for their meanie pants moves because Gary Bettman is, like, TOTALLY into fair play now and I hear that David Desharnais grew, like, 12 inches over the summer (random growth spurt I KNOW) and Jacques Martin is finally going to put together a series of plays designed to put the puck in the net and we can even start campaigning now for PK SUBBAN AND CAREY PRICE to share the Conn Smythe because we are just that awesome, amirite??!! I can hardly wait to share my newfound positivity with our readers!! TRIPLE LOW FIVES ALL AROUND BABY, ÇA SENT LA COUPE AND PLAN THE PARADE!!!!11!!!!!!!1

Wait, what? This is FHF's last post? You're kidding me, right?
...

Thank God. Not sure I would have been able to keep that up all year.

GG11
Let me just say Go Admirals Go!

moeman (+ Mick)
I saw 4, 10 & 33 today at a CHez Parée reception
A glass of wine in their hand
I knew they would meet our danse-à-dix connection
Already at her feet was a Pants!loose ovenmitted man!

No, FHFers can't always get what they want
FHFers can't get the ice cream they want
FHFemmes couldn't always get the manly pics they wanted
And when I blogged sometimes you found
You got the moe-rass you needed

I saw LG today at an Apple reception
A glassy new iPhone4S in her hand
I knew she was gonna lose her WiFi connection
At her feet was a Pants!loose ovenmitted man!

Anonymous, you can't always get what the fuck you want
You can't always comment what the fuck you want
You can't always fuck like you fucking want
But when you logged in sometimes you might find we knew
You'd be the fucking jerk you needed to be

Oh yeah, hey hey hey, oh … What!?

And I went down to a 4/20 demonstration
To get my fair share of some hooCH
Singing, "I'm gonna vent my FHFrustration
If I don't I'm gonna blow a 50 gram fuse"
Sing it to me now ...

You can't always smoke what you want
You can't always meth what you want
You can't always drink what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
A Pants!loose ovenmitted man!
Oh baby, yeah, yeah!

I went down to the CHelsea drugstore
To get 29's presCHription filled
I was standing in line with Dr. & Mrs. GG
And man, did she look pretty CHill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavour, Habs CHerry red
I sung this song to Dr. & Mrs. GG
Yeah, and GG said one thing to me, and that was
Is that a Pants!loose ovenmitted man?

You can't always get what you want, (no bleu BR!)
You can't always get what you want (fuck ya McSplooge!)
You can't always get what you want (no bob cold!)
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
Oh yes! Woo! PFK! TFS™ PleXXXE! Tits! Squid! Gio!

You get what you need--yeah, oh baby!
Oh yeah! GYFHG!

I saw Kristin today at the CBC's 75th reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained ovenmitted hands

FHFers, we can't always get what we want
We can't always get what we want, a 25th Stanley!
We can't always get what we want, see you at i/o Hockey?
But if you login here sometime, you just might find
You'll get the ass you need
and just maybe
a Pants!loose ovenmitted man!

You get what you need, ah oui …

Final post? Didn't you guys pull the cord on your comatose blog after the readership sank to 6 when I left?

Panger
No thanks, I’m retired!

Good stuff team. You're the best 3/4/5/6 people I could ever blog with. Man I'll miss this place.

The one reason we hesitated to pull the plug was you guys out there. I've said it before and I will say it again for posterity, no hockey blog has the commentariat that we do. Witty, funny, angry, sexy, you guys are the absolute bees' knees. Hanging out in an open thread is like hanging out with friends (that I actually like) and even, dare I say it, like family (that I actually like). We need to find a (virtual) place for all of us to hang out. N31's place is pretty cool. Moey's pad is nice, though you may leave with some cat hair on you. And no doubt Steve has the best drugs. Of course, GG11 and I have other internet homes, drop by any time. And LG77 is one of the best Tweeters around, so say hi to her. It would just be a shame if we're like the group of friends that graduates high school and runs off to college all over North America, never to talk again.

Well I think we've gone on long enough, both in this post and forever. One last time: GYFHG, Die PHucktards Die, Bs suck, Fuck the CBC / HNIC / TSN / CotU media, and of course, Pants! Thanks to all of you for joining us for the ride. Your meth ice cream is in the mail.

Thank you all. Your passion/turned work (unfortunately) was much appreciated by us all. Loving the CH IS work but you all made it fun even in defeat. Bon chance on your future endeavors!

Really? Aww man, I'm sad...

Thanks to everyone who "ran" F4F over the last two years that I've been lurking. You guys are the best. I have no clue what I'm going to read before game-time now.

...does this mean I have to go back to Habs, eh I mean, Hockey Inside-Out now?

Mark said...

Thanks for all the fun

hfotwc/ti-cul said...

man this sucks, it's hard to imagine a hockey season without this rowdy crew. Morning and game routine will change.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all you awesome folks.

& fuck the broonz, the laffs, don cherry, mc splooge, bert raymoonz, midget buttfuck

& GO YOU MOTHER FUCKING HABS GO!!!!

Steve said...

Thanks FHF you were the best, I will be hanging out at N31, but with SWF commenting. Your legendary commentary, photo shopping, and NSFW excellence, put FHF up on the shelf with the 71 Habs, class, speed, elegance, a joyful metaphor for fun.
To my fellow commenters, I say what I always say when I get fired, so I have it down pat.
So long and thanks for all the fish

Kmaxx said...

I knew I shouldn't have connected with that Allan M guy on LinkedIn! Dammit guys and girls - you have to understand that living in the UK makes it really tough to follow the Habs (or any hockey for that matter) but you guys made it easy and you reminded me of why hockey is the greatest game in the world and that that the Habs are the greatest team in the world...I'm being selfish but I don't want this to end - I understand why it must but I still don't want it to.

On behalf of all (ice) hockey fan and Habs fans in the UK, I want to thank you guys for producing the best blog I have ever read. Sure you had some lazy habits (Tweet this bitches...as an example)from time to time but dammit you were all good and you became my source for all things Habs.

May FHF Rest in Peace!

iRiRi said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :( This can't be happening...

I stumbled upon your blog after a quick Google search titled: "Funny Habs blogs". That was almost 2 years ago and I've been coming back every since. During the season, I checked this blog first thing in the morning and multiple times throughout the day. Does this mean I have to start paying attention in class now?

You've made me laugh out loud with your wit, snark, sarcasm and creative photoshops. Thank you to everyone who's had something to do with making this blog great (including all the commenters!).

It's the end of an era. I'm gonna miss all of you. Even the strippers.

One last time, GYFHG!

Sad to see you go. Truly enjoyed your blog. Stay well.

This is the saddest day in Montreal hockey since Dec '95 and seriously that is how I feel right now.
Thanks for everything! This is by far the best hockey blog around, but we all know that already. You guys and girls made my day, every day, for the last 2 1/2 years.
I didn't comment all that much but enjoyed everything from the witty sarcasm, and fantastic photo shop, to the excellent song parodies, and hilarious nicknames. Thanks again, from the guy that named the Giant-Mexican-Squid,
sincerely,
LEHAB
and also the hilarious wv...rabilies ( is that 2 words?) I thought it would be priestlies

KRaZykeV said...

Wow, big disappointment to read this today. Do you have no one to pass the torch to? I can't count the number of times I've LOL'd HARD at my desk reading your comments since I first discovered your blog years ago. Posts of hot chicks certainly enhance the overall Habs experience too!

You will be sorely missed!!!

And watch... Habs will be 2012 Champs, and this blog can't celebrate.

Fuckity fuck. Camel-toe Larry is going to score 50 this year and you guys won't be there to post 50 topless babes in his honour....

Nice following you guys over the years. Funny blogging lawyers are cool. Lawyers are not cool.

It's the end of an era, I was pointed to this place by another blogger and it was the funniest stuff I'd ever read.

Thanks to the original FHFans and outstanding contributers GG11, LG77 (best female curser ever) and especially moeman for his epic rips of cbc/hnic and his great ass shots.

I'm still coming up there for the 22nd, hope somebody can show up to keep a Maritimer company. They're not closing Hurley's right? Just Four Habs Fans.

Moey said...

Well this sucks but all good things come to an end. Don't know what I'm gonna do on game night's now. *sigh*

Chester said...

This is bullshit.
I'm gonna phone somebody...

what am I going to do now

p.gagnon17 said...

Thanks guys, you made random moments of my work day much more entertaining.

And sexy.

Cheers!

LeNoceur said...

You guys were the best, and excellent blog-friends. All the best to you.

(And, it sort of felt good to pull the plug, didn't it?)

Gonna miss this a lot. Thanks for such a funny and creative site.

Bill 10-4 said...

oh rats... me sad

Thanks so much FHFers. I salute the passing of my fave spot on the internet.

why do I feel like I just heard an old pal died in a car accident?

the world is a little less funny today

Peace

Thanks to you all for all the funny. You will be missed.

This is the best Habs blog period...It is my homepage 12 months of the year...

Very sad to hear this news...I hope you reconsider...perhaps blogging now and then?

If not... as sad as I am, I want to thank you all for your absolute excellence, humour, photoshop skills....and hating the Leafs and Bruins as much as I...

Please reconsider...either way...

Good health to you all...

A very sad day indeed. FHF was the first site I checked in on every morning.

Thank you so much for entertaining me to no end the last few years. I will always remember Jaro's thoughts, 10 Things I Hate, Pantscasts and countless other amazing posts. To top it all off with the sexy ladies and photoshops was truly sublime.

Per commenting protocol, for one last time:

B's suck, and they should all die FFS.

All the best to you lot -

Good luck guys. Don't ever stop mocking, even if it's now an offline pastime.

LeBuuuuut said...

Wow. So...April Fool's!...right?

I was looking forward to spending a full season with you guys after finding this site midway through last year. I'm really going to miss the nicknames and all the other unique and awesome things that you do.

Thanks for all of the laughs and for helping me learn more about hockey and what it's like to be a Habs fan.

Caduceus said...

WHAT. THE. EFFFFF.
That sucks. I am seriously sad. This was one of the few sports blogs that I checked in to on a daily basis.

I knew something was up when we started seeing less and less of GG's amazing work but I didn't think it would come to this...

I'm going to miss this place big time and I wish you guys all the best. Thanks for everything, especially the laughs, the strippers and the brilliant photoshop work.

GYFHG!

NOOOOO! STELLLLLLLLAAAAAA!
Wait. What? Checks date. October 4th, not April 1st.
You guys get a life or something? Just leaving us losers to our own demise. Well, fuck you all! And best wishes on all your future endeavours.

Perhaps we'll all meet on another site someplace, someday. Or maybe this thread will just stay alive forever. Can't end with...

Hadulf said...

HOLY FUCK BATMAN! Tis sad it is! I was not expecting this...

If you must, you must...

Thanks to FHF for making EVERY mornings great, even in the off-season!

I'm secretly wishing this is a joke...but somehow...that "no joke" tag seems serious...

I wish you luck and I will truly miss this place, all the funnies, the commenters...ah, the memories...sigh...

Again, thank you so much!

Mr. natural said...

Man came here to whine because I was having such a shit day with this multi-national conglomerate Phucking my shit up ….now this!

FHF was an oasis in what is pretty much a sea of puke called the internet, I wonder if you have any idea of just how much you gave us by providing this forum to share a common passion.

Some of the wittiest, funniest things that I have had the honour to participate in and appreciate was provided by you the FHF and all the other goofy Bastards frequenting this site.

Now I will definitely be at Hurley’s on Oct 22nd when The M gets into town and I will buy a round.

I am truly saddened.

My most sincere “THANKS”.

Mr . natural

That is all!

juce said...

You've broken my heart! No other site can compare to you guys. I'll just go away and cry now. The saddest part, one day I could be passing you by on my way to the ladies room at Hurley's and never know it was you.

And...

Fuck the Broons, Leafs and Buttman and probably Shitahan too.

Goodbye,
Joyce

Demitra said...

Happy trails guys. I won't claim to be a Habs fan, but your blog did spark at least a curiosity, and perhaps the spate of interest. Enjoy your retirement, you've certainly earned it. Is it too much to hope that putting the sexy into Friday is still fun and not work? In closing, fuck the Leafs. If there is a God then their plane will suffer a freak mid-air collision with the Pens and Flyers planes and every stinking one of them will burn all the way down. Just joking of course.

(not really joking)

Seth in Brussels said...

Will miss you greatly. I am not sure if I can enjoy hockey without your snark.

But alas, thank you so much for those 4 years of posts (I probably missed the first one though now that I think about it).

They block a lot of websites at work but not this one, what am I gonna do now!!!

This was the only sports blog worth reading. I'm so sad to see it go; now that I no longer live in Montreal, however will I get my biased hockey news?!?!

It was a good run .... I spent some time this morning doing a little "Best Of" archival digging. Man, those MickeyRibs FuckityFuck rants are still funny. Also, HF10, seriously, no one rips into a rant like you.

Not to rehash what's already been said, but thanks to the whole bunch of you, from the original FHFers to add-ons like LG77, GG and moeman. You're the blog (possibly website) I've read most consistently over the past three years and change. I'll still hold off on deleting the FHF icon from my toolbar, just in case. Wish you guys all the best in future online and offline endeavors and 29, if you can make internet law blogging even a tenth as entertaining as what you achieved here, I'll be a regular reader on your new blog.

cheers.

Speaking as a reporter here, I wish there were more people in our business who wrote about hockey with the same devil-may-care irreverence and, frankly, the same knee-slapping turns of phrase as you guys.

There'll be many, many people in this city who'll miss you and who will inevitably keep checking this page from time to time in the hope that, maybe, a couple of you guys might have changed your mind.

If you guys ever wind up doing some short-form version of this blog in the Twitterverse, well, that'd be swell, too.

Otherwise, thanks for four very, very entertaining years -- and for the countless hours you put into this.

We'll be spinning yarns and chuckling about some of your gags for decades to come.

Johnny Bertolo said...

Sad to see you guys pack it in after so many hilarious (and to the point) posts. The Montreal Canadiens blogosphere will not be the same without you modern-day scribes. Best of luck in whatever the f#$k you're gonna do now! Thank you for keeping me informed and somewhat 'sane' in the process. And remember, as you walk down that long road known as life, always remember....hitchhiking's quicker! Cheers!

First of all, THANKS FOR THE BLOG !
Living in Cambridge (an hour west of Laff Land), I really get sick of the Toronto media such as TSN (Toronto Sporting News), CBC (Can't Broadcast Canadiens), THN (Toronto Hockey News), etc...

You will be missed, thank you again and take care.

I've never been a strong on participating at blogs, but I've been a loyal reader for a few years, even though I don't remember when I started reading you guys.

The Habs blogosphere will suffer from this departure, you've made the most entertaining habs blog out there. Good laughs, nice pics, great funny nicknames, silly and refreshing point of view, etc. Since I'm not really good at writing in english, I'll switch to french since I know (hope) you'll understand anyway.

Le site est le premier dans ma liste de favori, et il était la première place où j'allais pour lire sur le Canadien et me changer les idées. Maintenant je vais me contenter des autres blogs qui disent pas mal toute la même affaire, à quelque exceptions près (You know the ones, it is through you that I discovered them).

Merci beaucoup. Vous avez fait un travail extraordinaire.

Fuck.

Is stage 1 of the grieving process denial?

well fuck.

not much to add to what others have said, but I wanted to tell y'all I really enjoyed reading this, it was a great part of post-game mornings.

I'll miss it!

Thanks!

Steve said...

FHF = 71 Habs
Never to be equaled.
Blame Harper and his war on freedom!

Eugene said...

Dammit. This Phucktards fan will miss visiting you guys on a daily basis.

Good job over the years. Hopefully you pull a Selanne and come back every year for eternity.

Darksyde said...

I may just be selfish, but howzabout a compromise? On game days, you just throw up a basic text box, I.e. Habs vs. Leafs, so the "community" can stay together in the comments section, and y'all just treat us with your usual gold whenever the mood strikes you?

We just love you all, and don't want you to go.

But do as you must, and know you'll be sorely missed. Thanks again for all your hard work and brilliance.

Hadulf said...

Yeah, I officially need the 12 step program...

soperman said...

Crap. What am I going to do at work all day now? I can actually start working.

I can't go back to being one of the 6 billion commentariat at the Hockeyinsideout blog. No strippers, no cursing and they take things way too seriously.

I expect the next time I go to Hurley's the doors will be locked and the lights will be out. (and it won't be 6 am on Sunday)

WV fusniti - that sounds like a good curse word.

Anonymous said...

On here daily. Die hard Leaf fan who loves what you guys bring to the table. Won't be the same without you....this is my first post and apparently my last. All the best!

Where is our last stripper pic goddammit?!

Thanks guys, really was a blast to read you last few years

Pamela said...

Wow. This is sad news. I just found this blog last year and have been visiting it daily ever since. I'll miss you guys! Thanks for the laughs.

Go Habs Go!

It's a sad sad day. It was the first little fuckety fuck rant that made me fall in love with you fuckers and I've hung around ever since. Thanks for the laughs and the camaraderie. It has truly been a blast. I hate you for leaving me but respect your decision. Jerks.
No chance of a blow up the blog party at Hurley's HQ?

dwgs said...

Oh, and Habs sign Betts, until recently a Phucktard.

Phuck my life. Is it too early to hit the Jameson's?

the Maritimer said...

I'm with soperman, I can't comment at HI/O anymore, there are way too many "experts" who know more about Habs players than PG and JM put together.

Maybe I'll comment over at J.T.'s blog if she's still active. Are we allowed to swear there?

Anonymous said...

just a terrible blog, always whining about the delicate little canadiens getting hurt when they simply cannot protect themselves or eachother. good riddance. maybe patrice will show quebec the cup next summer again. cheers to another 18 years of stanley cup drought in montreal.

dwgs said...

@Maritimer - Comment at HI/O? Crap, I can't even read the comments, much less contribute to them. I try every once in a while but I never make it more than three comments in before I have to stop. Puckdaddy has better comments.
@Anon of 12:49, true to your fuckwit Beaner nature to the end I see. Consistency's gotta count for something.

Anonymous said...

Really sorry you guys are leaving. COnsistently funny, consistently passionate -- Habdom has become poorer for your absence.

soperman said...

STEVE!

Can we curse on your blog?

Not Geoff Molson said...

Read this last night on the subway...Fuck!

Thanks for the laughs, the strippers, the meth, the swearing, the iTuna, the nicknames, the word verification twists...I'll stop by Hurley's in Montreal and raise a glass vicariously.

Cheers - and see you at the home opener.

Steve said...

@Soperman,
Yes but my blog is not worthy to carry on the FHF tradition. I suggest we all go over to N31 and hang there.
Maybe N31 could lay out some house rules and we can carry on, who knows maybe the FHF team might do some guest appearances. I hope we can all stay in touch and maybe as the season hates up we could start another web site Mr. Molsons Gynecological. or Montreal Hockey Blogsmurfs. In any event the memory of FHF has to be distant because the site will never ever come close. It would be different in that is sucks in comparison.
I hope Orangeman weighs in soon.

HabsFan29 said...

Bullet points for what you missed...

whoops!

Just wanted to pop in and say:

1. Halfway to ice cream on this post!
2. Thanks everyone for your very kind words. We never really knew how much we meant to all of you. It's been amazing to see. Consider our egos stroked.
3. There may be some kind of movement afoot to keep the FHF community alive in some form, somehow. maybe. stand by.

To the boston troll @ 12:49, how many years between 1972 and 2011? Since you're probably not to good at math that would be 39.
I imagine Colon will be presented with his tainted ring on opening night in beantown standing next to his half-wit progeny.

I was all happy yesterday morning when I saw TMS with a mention of a post to come later too. I thought, cool hockey season's starting and FHF are back to posting again!

Then I read the 2nd post and have been trying to think of what to say here but it's tough. I've been reading for over a year maybe longer (I have no concept of elapsed time), posted a (nice) anon comment twice and appreciate the time you put into your blog. Thank you.

I am very sad to see it go and hope that HF29's tease above is for real.

I enjoy everyone's hockey analysis on posts and in the comments and especially the nicknames.

All that and a bag of pucks said...

I remember on the first day I found this site, on a Stripperific preview edition. I went all the way back to the very first post and read it all the way through, just to absorb it all. Has it only been four years? You all will be missed...

sadhabsfan said...

I hadn't posted anything since April 27,2011 because my heart was busted by Bawstin Bastids, but I've been reading FHF everyday and had planned to start commenting again with a new nom-de-plume because I didn't want to be a sadhabsfan anymore. Now I'm an even sadderhabsfan.

FHF has always been my first bookmark and sometimes the only thing I bothered to look at on the interwebs. Other blogs couldn't carry your jockstrap/garterbelt. There will be a very distinct emptiness this season. Thanks for all the yuks over the years.

I remain,
yours in shock and awe,
sadhabsfan

the galling thing is that the cool, funny FHFers are gonna go back to their cool, funny emails, texts & tweeets leaving us behind to seek help on ohter sites. or even talking to leaf fans. bastards.

lawyergirl77 said...

Have had a week that has given new meaning to the words "clusterfuck" and "functional alcoholism"

The kind words all of you said about the passing of FHF gave me one of my first genuine smiles all week.

Thank you to everyone for being so welcoming to the n00b who only started posting less than a year ago. This place was so great because of the community that we created together. I'll miss this place more than words can describe.

correction...the broons(Bruins) do not suck. they are actually the defending Stanley Cup Champions.

dwgs said...

anon@10:51...And GWB got hisself elected to the highest office of what could be the most powerful nation the world has ever seen.
He still sucks (possibly sucks more than the broons).

Steve said...

Who sucks more, Harper,GWB or d broons?
1)Harper cause he knows what he is doing.
2) D Broons no need to elaborate
3)GWB apparently has done the most actual sucking NTTAWWT, but has to be given some dispensation for mental competence.

juce said...

@anon (aka rectal orifice) @10:51 they only got to Cup cause daddy was protecting them.
And they can try and defend it but it's gonna be gone baby gone.

btw, I guess you have to stand on a chair while sucking Chara's dick, or maybe he just gets on his knees while you stand.

Well thanks for the times. I know after the MaxPax hit and the Bs Cup win (ASTERISK!) I felt like giving up on hockey, too. I enjoyed the last 4 years here but I guess I'll have to find a new internet home. Luckily the web is known to house lots of other weirdos and psychotics.

I'm out of MTL again, but next time I pass through I'll stop by Hurleys and pour a circle for my homies.
