Today’s musical selection is Everything I Build by The Stills, a band from Montreal.
Uncle Jack (he’s really not my uncle) comes into town with the Montreal Canadians tonight bringing what is now known as “The System” with him. The Canadians are currently in the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference. JM could be feeling some pressure from the Montreal faithful, but what else is new as the Habs are playing some inconsistent hockey of late. Obviously a result of “The System”. Names such as JMart, Count Chocula as well as many others grace the blogosphere referring to the former Florida Panthers coach and general manager. For some laughs and comedic insight go to Four Habs Fans. I warn you though, it’s not G rated.
