Twas nice to get my first game thread victory last night. I was 0-2 over the past few years before that, so a self-imposed lifetime ban was on deck had they lost.


Anyway, up next on the shooting gallery are the floundering Montreal Toilet Seats. The same Toilet Seats that are protesting an Anglophone for a coach. The same Toilet Seats that just got shut out by the goalie they gave away. Seeing them last in the division a rare treat.


Let Sharktopus guide us.

This pub will be showing the game tomorrow, and apparently their group of regulars includes a large number of Québécois folks.

Cannot put a price on in-person antagonization of Habs fans across the Atlantic. Lead us, Thimas.

Crush them. Hopefully, by the end of this game, the CH Habs crest will stand for Can't Hang!

Go Bruins!

It's nice to get back to the good old rivalry. My Canucks hate is too damn concentrated, it's unhealthy. I can spread my Habs hate over two decades to soften the fury. Plus, the organizational entitlement is based on a truckload of legit championships and historically great players rather than, you know, a Presidents' Trophy and a truckload of futility.

They're in the midst of some rough times right now but, as is always the case against Montreal, I don't expect an easy victory.

Nor I. These guys have to believe, after looking totally soft at home against St. Louis, that their season may come down to this game in a way. Lose tonight, and 15th in the conference is suddenly in reach. The douchey Subban factor alone should make this a tougher game than we'd like to think.

This game is miraculously on Brazilian ESPN. Probably the only B's regular season game I'll watch on TV until the playoffs.

Make it a bloodbath.

Huge game for Montreal tonight. Just wondering what kind of an effort we'll see out of them. Are they going to tank the season, or are they willing to dig deep. Can't wait for this one.

Just a hunch, but I'm guessing we'll see a lot of turtling, diving and bitching at the refs. So in other words, not much.

Cammalleri: «Le Canadien affiche une attitude de perdants»

Google translation for us français-impaired perdants.

"I played good and bad teams. When you post an attitude of losers as they do now, you lose more often than you win and you the classification of leaping. When you post a winning attitude, you do not be stifled by the errors and you answer with an error 15 good plays at the other end, you win and you get out of poverty. This is not what we do here now, "continued Cammalleri on a sharp tone.

That sucks, sounds like he was really looking forward to coming and being here. Looks like he'll be here for the 1/21 game against the Rags instead. But still. Bummed for him. Was nice to see him excited about something.

Well they have done a fantastic job locking up the players they wouldn't want long-term. I wonder what Subban is going to ask for in the off-season, I could see the two sides being way apart.

Hamill was going through extra skating with Marchand and Kampfer, so it sounds like Caron is back in.

Looney Tunes is so fucking awesome and in the future when we're able to customize our own TV station, my station's schedule will feature at least 8 hours a day of it.

The episode of Road Runner on right now is the greatest work of philosophical, self-aware television I've ever seen. They've been cutting away to two kids sitting inches from a TV who look and sound stoned as they watch and discuss the Road Runner show:

Kid 1: Sometimes I feel bad for the Coyote. Sometimes I wish he would catch the Road Runner.
Kid 2: Then there wouldn't be anymore Road Runner. You wouldn't like that, would you?
Kid1: No, I guess not.
Kid 2: I thought you wouldn't.

Yeah, that's awful. My brain hurts from looking at that. I mean, jesus...the hits keep coming. Gomez through 2014 @ 7.3? Georges contract (at 3.9?!) that extends seemingly forever? Cammo for 6 freaking bills?! Ohoho...and let's not forget the Kaberle contract. Ugh...any GM that looked at that would be dumber for having done so.

And Price, Subban, and Eller are RFAs after this season? Dear God.

I'm spreading that hatred over four decades and it is an easier emotion to handle; levels you off a little bit. It's much more jarring dealing with years and years of indifference followed by a spike in intense loathing, as in the case of the Canucks.

Still enjoyable hatred, but different.

I've been watching all of my movies with Spanish audio and Spanish subtitles for months now. Easy way to do some studying for the exam that I have to pass next week or I don't graduate my program until the summer.

Thank Krejci that application season is just about over. I'm so burned out from applying that I don't even want to stay in school anymore. So much so that I told everyone I was applying to ten schools when in reality I reduced that to six. I would love to keep deferring my loans but at this point I'd rather see the enormous number drop and have some goddamn money. It's all good because I'm pretty sure I'm not getting accepted anywhere. I'm just like every other MA student except I have no teaching experience, no awards or accolades, and nothing relevant published. I am the Zach Hamill of MA students, I'm just there and I have no top-end skills.

How can one possibly capture the unhinged scariness of Gary Busey in a French dub. They should have left it in English or at least switched to an intimidating language, like German or Cantonese. Ever been screamed at in Cantonese? It's frightening.

I once wrote a function that got a Lease Abstract ID, that I called getLAID(). I laughed for about 2 minutes, then realized how much I hated that job because of my bitch of a manager.

Today's been good. I'm writing a new login/forgot password page, and its one of those things every decent web programmer needs to have experience on at least once. Its also nice working from home, because the weather is beyond shitty, and I'm sitting in bed with my laptop all warm and happy.

After working until 1:30am the last two nights, I am meeting up with a buddy in midtown for drinks and going to pray the bar has the NHL Network so I can throw the game on.

I write code for a living becuase I love turning someone else's logic into a digital system. The process of understanding someone else's workflow, making a digital representation of it, and making it more efficient and easier for people to use is actually something I pride myself on. Its probably similar to all you lawyers trying to come up with great arguments to sway a jury. Sometimes just being able to do what you do very well makes you happy. It does for me.

I wrote a system to help streamline commercial office space management for the property owners. Most people would find that incredibly boring, but I really enjoyed deconstructing their logic and building a system that basically eliminated the need for paper or faxing, and provided digial recordkeeping for every deal they've ever made.
