Na Na Na Na - Hey Hey Hey...

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae if she is checking in.

A pretty good example of why Flyers' fans rival Habs fans in terms of being one of the most hated fan bases in the NHL - over and above being douchebags. This is the kind of sign you would see at the Bell Centre - the kind that makes you go "Huh?" Whatever.

The Habs are down 3-1 to the Flyers and seem to be out of answers. The turning point in last night's game came when Habs fan-favourite Steve Bégin was called for interference for a cheap shot (borderline hit from behind) on the Flyers forward Sami Kapanen. The hit came with less than five minutes left in the game, with the Habs having all the momentum after having erased a 2-0 deficit with two quick goals.

Ironic huh? The primary reason for the Habs success this year has been the play of their special teams - especially their power play; for the last seven months, the Habs and their fans have applauded the officiating in the NHL for "calling it like it is - calling a good tight game where a penalty is a penalty" they'll all be crying about the call on Bégin. Let's hear them signing at the Bell Centre on Saturday night...

Suggestions for early afternoon games - back later with night games.

Chicago over Milwaukee - you have to like the "Big Z" today over Milwaukee. Lay $100 on the Cubs - $137.

Washington over Pittsburgh - scary proposition taking Odalis Perez, but Zach Duke has been awful of late. Lay $100 on the Nats - $129.

Los Angeles over Florida - tough for a road team to sweep a series - but Big Blue is on a roll right now. Lay $100 on the Dodgers - $126.

That's it for this morning gang - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out!
