The Morning Bell for Thursday November 17, 2011
Today's honorary ringer: Michael Landsberg
OTR's host wrote a terrific and moving piece on Wade Belak this summer. Yesterday he handled idiot supreme, Chael Sonnen, of the UFC with agility and intelligence. Sonnen was no match for Landsberg's wits and, after refusing to answer any questions, berating Landsberg and trouncing our country for good measure, walked off the set. Amazingly, Landsberg has said he would give Sonnen a do-over if the fighter obliged.
Habs came up with their best 60 minutes of the year and dominated the Canes last night. PK scored his first goal - I'm sure Siri will have something to say about that. The boys play again tonight in the land of Snow, Garth Snow. Habs are 7-2-1 in their last 10. Feels oddly strange to say that because it hasn't felt that joyous of late.
Elsewhere in the NHL other teams suited up and played some hockey. Like the Blackhawks avenging a loss this month to the Canucks, and other games with meaningless subplots, like LA avenging the fact that it's an ugly city.
Stay iTuned today, we've got some new stuff to throw at you. You can throw it back to us in the comments. "Dad? Wanna play catch?" Love that line.
