Happy Hour

Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

Stanley Cup Playoffs, Conference Finals Set

The Philadelphia Flyers pulled it off. From a 3 games to none deficit to a date with my Canadiens in the Eastern Final. The last NHL team to win a series after trailing 3-0 was the 1975 Islanders.
In the West it will be San Jose against Chicago.
The neat trivia is that in the West, it is the one seed and the two seed, while in the East it is the seven seed against the eight seed. What a playoff. Even Buck is amazed considering his Red Wings are out of it. IT IS THAT GOOD THIS YEAR!

I could not BELIEVE the B's blew a 3-0 lead and figgered out a way to lose that game last night. Which isn't taking anything away from the Flyers, of course. I just don't like those guys and I hope they get swept in the ECF (but realistically? Habs in six). My dislike has a lot to do with Chrissy Pronger, but it goes back further than that.

All that said, I think your Habs are gonna be in for one hella fight in the Finals... and I don't think you're gonna like the outcome.

Camalleri and Havlak can only do so much.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
