Don't forget overfed Butts Wigglin' their way into the seats at assorted arenas...

Or Yawning or Snarling being the tossup with many of the games today...

Thugs (or Fight) for the more physical teams pushing around those poor Habs...

Ok, that's enough.  Thanks for the inspiration to put on a bunch of Hip on random this morning subby.

You're welcome.  I submitted a similar headline the Saturday after Gord Downie passed away, but something else had already been greened.  I figured with his birthday on Tuesday, I'd give a Hip themed hockey headline another try.
 
2018-02-03 12:48:09 PM  
I thought it had your (taint is a word but probably not a good one given the other meaning...) input.  I was thinking of tossing one out there with all the games today but now knowing about Gord's b-day I'm glad that I didn't

_/notwithstanding the fact that this was already green before I thought about it...
_/_/just about time for Les Habs & my beat up Ducks...
 
2018-02-03 12:49:20 PM  
I've never really got the Hip love. It doesn't help that I can't understand the words when Gord is singing, but even when I look up the lyrics it's often incomprehensible. They do have some good tunes though. I don't hate em.

Here's why the Rangers got "At Transformation:"

2018-02-03 01:01:13 PM  
And why the Bruins got "Nautical Disaster" (among other reasons):

For the non-Canadians, or at least non-Canadians that don't live just across the border, the theme is Tragically Hip songs, most of which have a hockey connection.

"Fully Completely," "At Transformation," and "Nautical Disaster" were all Hockey Night in Canada openings.

"50 Mission Cap" - Bill Barilko and the Leafs cup drought.
"Fireworks" - Bobby Orr's Summit Series goal (and realizing maybe there's more to life than hockey, like girls).
"Lonely End of the Rink" - Ostensibly about being a goalie  (that's what Gord played).

"Courage" is in there because I needed to fill out the sentence, "Bobcaygeon" is one of my favorite Hip songs.

I've been watching the Marlies/Rocket AHL game, which the Marlies just won 7-1. The Habs cupboard is basically bare, they can get out of this, but they need to do many things differently than they are now and there will be more pain before it gets better. Not unlike the Leafs actually 4 years ago.
Tonight will be a good test for the very likely first round Atlantic 2-3 match-up, Hainsey and Rielly are back for the Buds, and McCavoy for the Broons. Marchand still sitting out for the flying elbow.

Or the Canadiens 9 years ago. Or any team since 1967. Just saying, bragging about how you're ahead of your rivals means nothing, especially if you're the Leafs.

Is the bar at the Hotel Figeuroa still there? It used to be a groovy place after the game, it's on their pool deck. It's north of Staples on Figueroa. I haven't been there in a few years, but that's where I go after games (especially since that's where I stay when I come to LA for games)
