That nachos picture. I still don't understand when you think that is a good idea.

 

Can't set it on the urinal? Can't just use one hand to pee and one to hold your food? Nope, just setting it down here to get covered in piss.

Probably not the best way for Shea to ingratiate himself to his new 'mates.

Shea: "Sure Max, I'll go grab you some 'chos."

 

 

Weber, that a-hole.

Yeah - be careful what you wish for.

 

Game still very much in the air, althoough it's trending Montreal's way.

 

BTW, that was one hell of a shot by Max. The hockey fan in me enjoys an extraordinary wrister like that.

Wild give the lead back.

 

Matt Dumba ... what was he thinking?

 

He should be a winger because he can't play defense like that.

Canadiens fans sing along with Offspring. Like that city.

 

If you've never been, treat yourself.

S'il vous plait, and merci go a long way.:)

 

I've found Montral pretty bilingual - Quebec City is another story.
