MFA, July 12, Welcome, Laval Junior Swim Team

The Montreal Canadiens have announced that they will relocate their AHL franchise, the St. John’s IceCaps from Newfoundland to Laval QB for the 2017-18 season. The city of Laval will have a new facility in place by then, the Place Bell.

This would result in a significantly shortened travel time between their affiliate and other divisional rivals, who are located primarily in upstate New York.

Also interesting is the fact that they are not only renaming the team, they are running a “name the team” contest, soliciting votes from their fanbase.
I would recommend “Laval Junior Swim Team“, but this being the internet age, I expect we will see “Hockey McHockeyface” (Or in French, “Hockey de visage de Hockey“) To enter a submission, log on to www.placebell.ca.
dive!
This is not the only potential team move in the works

The Ottawa Senators are planning on moving their affiliate from Binghamton, NY to Yardmen Arena in Belleville ON, also targeting the 2017-18 season.
Like the Habs, the Sens have a stadium issue to resolve. Yardmen Arena was built in 1978 and seats 3,257 spectators. AHL games attract 3000-8000 spectators. No franchise in their right mind would move to a sub-10,000 seat venue. The venerable Yardmen is scheduled for massive updates. The city is reportedly footing the bill for updates to the structure, refrigeration & capacity.

Alas, no word on whether a name change to the “Belleville Beaurocrats” is a possibility.

Today in multiculturalism, this was in the web service deployment instruction document I received today:

“The purpose of this document is to deploy the new web service of ResultService for Hajj Sacrificial Animals (ADAHI) Coupon Project.”

Oh crap. I had an animal to sacrifice this morning.

I’ve never thought to see if Groupon has deals for sacrificial animals.

Morning All! Fuck today! Yes, today already sucks. We have dog guests and one of them kept needing to go out all night. Apparently he was having constipation issues. When I sat down to breakfast and put my feet under the table I found out those issues had been resolved. Yup, barefoot. Didn’t feel much like eating after that. So, once I shoot a dog and bury it, I can make a new breakfast and start my day over. Now, where’s Jo’s revolver?
SIngle game tonight. Wednesday double, Thursday double.

That’s Mel Brooks’ History of the World Part I, isn’t it?

Leader of Senate: All fellow members of the Roman senate hear me. Shall we continue to build palace after palace for the rich? Or shall we aspire to a more noble purpose and build decent housing for the poor? How does the senate vote?
Entire Senate: FUCK THE POOR!

Morning all!

Just yogurt this morning. No banana since the grocery store only had very green bananas. I am disappointed.

Green bananas are the best bananas!

Seal the bananas in a paper bag – they’ll ripen faster. Apparently.

I was going to stand in solidarity with Bagel Bruin and reject bagels until he had one, but I broke down and got a bagel.
