Although the players will be saying their goodbyes and heading back to the cottages in Sainte Leonard and Sault Ste. Marie, or the dachas in Novopolotsk and Togliatti, I, however, will be continuing my workouts and strict discipline in preparation for when I’m called up as flag guy next season at the Bell Centre.
One thing I don’t need is an injury, so I’ve decided to sit when I’m drinking beer, and also to do as little as possible at work. Can you imagine when they call me to be flag guy and I have to tell them I pulled a muscle while dancing at the Moose Hall, or I’m too exhausted from doing too much for the Man at work?
Also, the photo above isn’t really me. But it kind of gives you an idea of what I’ll look like in my Habs uniform on flag night. In real life, I have legs and a neck.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Sean Avery spent his last playoff chances of the year in the hospital, and missed his team’s (New York Rangers) elimination.
There’s no truth to the rumour that the reason he was hospitalized was for the removal of his ego, which was growing at a dangerous rate. There might be, however, some truth to the rumour that Avery was the least popular patient in the New York hospital.
TEAMS I HATE THE MOST IN THE NHL:
That would be the Flyers, Bruins, Devils, Leafs, Senators, Panthers, Hurricane, Lightening, Islanders, Rangers, Avalanche, Canucks, Wild, Stars, Sharks, Kings, Blues, Blue Jackets, Red Wings, Blackhawks, Oilers, Thrashers, Capitals, Penguins, Flames, Ducks, Predators, and Coyotes.
I like the rest, though.
WHO WILL WIN THE STANLEY CUP?
Oh, is hockey still going on?
