This week’s winner of The Coach Least Like Jacques Martin Award goes to Marty Williamson of the OHL’s Niagara Ice Dogs.

Next time, Mart, try the de-caf … or the JM chamomile tea.

At least one Canadiens fan is excited about Alex Auld.

And guess which HIO blogger got confused at the beach.

Hockey players can be jerks on occasion, as evidenced by any Sean Avery highlight reel you’d care to cue up.

But baseball players?

They’re really special.

In 2007, Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano signed a five-year contract worth a cool $91.5 million.

Check this dugout altercation between Zambrano and Cubs first baseman Derek Lee.

Where’s the BGL Code when you need it?

Weird: Canadiens alive, but no Saturday hockey.

Lovely day in Montreal, sunny and warm.

For some reason, everyone is smiling.

Comment of the Day, from the very astute Jane Findlay:

That was a monumental effort and easily our best
game of the playoffs so far.  We did exactly what we had to do – jumped
out to an early lead and hung on, sowing some seeds of doubt in the
minds of those arrogant Capitals and giving us some positive momentum. 
I’m sure the Caps and their fans thought they’d just walk over us.  Even
when we went up 2-0, they had only to think of the last time we had a
2-goal lead to feel sure that their team would crank up its offence and
storm back.  It didn’t happen, thanks largely to Halak’s superb
performance but also to the heroic efforts of our shortened bench.  I
loved the grit and determination I saw, although I admit I was so
nervous in the third period I was watching the clock more than the play,
praying that we would either score or – for once – hang on.

It
was great to see a bounce-back performance from Halak.  His nervous play
during the last two or three weeks certainly raised questions about his
ability to handle the pressure of key games, but last night he was
rock-solid, supremely confident, never shaken.  Perhaps having game 4
off gave him a rest and allowed him to re-focus.  If he can give a
repeat performance on Monday, we could see a game 7.

I don’t know
what JM has against Sergei Kostitsyn.  He makes mistakes (like all of
them), but since coming back from Hamilton he’s played well.  He no
longer takes lazy penalties like he did last year, he plays well
defensively, he’s gritty, he makes great passes.  I don’t see how
benching or scratching him is helpful.  The coaching staff need to have
patience with our young players, not only Sergei but also Pouliot, who
has great ability but seems to have regressed lately.  He hasn’t yet
played a full season in the NHL, and development is often uneven.  I
haven’t been sold on JM as a coach all season, and his treatment of our
young players is what worries me most.

What a schmuck!

Giving away a good 20 pounds, Kings’ Wayne Simmonds
battles Shane O’Brien
to a draw, then the Canucklehead celebrates
like he’d KOed Bob Probert.

    …My kids and I were eating in a sports bar this afternoon with the Senators-Penguins game on a screen in the background …We left with the score 3-1 for Ottawa, and mistakenly thinking the 2nd intermission stoppage was the end-of-game as We left

    …only to come home later to find the Penguins tied the game in the third and had won in overtime

    …My Son and I had been talking of how sweet it would be if the Canadiens and Senators eliminated both Ovechkin’s and Crosby’s teams …and how suicidal this might make Bettman

    …We also talked of the possibility of Vancouver and either Our Habs or the Senators meeting in the Final for the Cup

    …well, these possibilities have narrowed to Our Habs and the Canucks

    …leaving the potentialof an unknown fissure in My up-to-now tight little Family …My Vancouver-born daughter Venus, an avid Canucks fan threatening to set Our pants on fire if We (My son and I) dare to cheer on Our Habs

    …today, Quent and I stocked-up on extra jeans and slacks …just in case

    …anybody that read an over-the-top rant I could not resist writing against Jack Todd awhile ago knows I don’t like ‘the man’ Jack Todd

    …but I read his column on Carey Price just now, and I agree pretty much on everything Todd said

    …over the summer, Carey Price is going to have to look Himself seriously in the mirror

    The other day Boone posted a phone call (I think it was) from a caller I believe was called Sal. I wanted to listen to it but the sound on my computer wasn’t working. I have gotten my computer fixed and really want to listen to it but now cannot find it.

    Can someone help me out and give me a link to the call. Thanks.
