Holiday Gifts and Wishes For All On The Montreal Sports Landscape

As we approach the holiday season, I would like to take the time to express my gratitude to the people and organizations that make the sport landscape in Montreal so great. The following list are my “would be gifts” and best wishes.

(Please Note: Do not take these seriously. They are meant to mock. I mock because I like, well at least sometimes).
  • To Moe Khan of TSN Radio 990, pleated slacks.
  • To The Montreal Canadiens, qualifying for the NHL playoffs.
  • To The Montreal Impact, the Canadiens not qualifying for the NHL playoffs. (Please read, "A Test Of Impact For The Montreal Sports Fanatic")
  • To Matthew Ross, an embargo on Habs' Tuesday night games for the next six years.
  • To Pierre Gauthier, this.
  • To Jack Todd, an email address at The Montreal Gazette.
  • To the AM radio station on Fort St., the radio rights to the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada (Local sports radio highlights are not the same without hearing "Shutout buster")

Final Taughts…

No wonder Kobe is pissed. Anyone see how snippy Kobe Bryant got during a press scrum regarding the trade of Lamar Odom?

The guy wasn’t pissed at the trade, he was pissed because he just found out that he has NO PRENUP. NO PRENUB, C’mon Kobe!!!

Well Done Mike!!! So Mike Milbury goes off on a 12 year old kid at his son’s game? Well done Mike. Say goodbye NBC and CBC, hello TMZ.
