The Morning Bell for the Last Day of this Miserable - December 31, 2011

Today's Honorary Ringers: Moet & Chandon.

These two guys will make another killing tonight as millions across the globe scramble to fetch every last bottle at the liquor store - only to leave two thirds in their glasses. Fucking genius.

With a nice flare for the dramatic, Danny Alfredsson scored his 400th in overtime last night as the Sens beat Les Flammes. Pierre Gauthier and Randy Cunneyworth were elated as the game notes they sent to the Ottawa coaching staff paid big dividends. It is entirely possible that if the Senators win the cup, Gauthier and Cunneyworth will have their names etched in glory on the trophy.

The Habs are in Sunrise tonight. The big debate now rages across the sunshine state. To go or not to go. I mean DC and I are here. We can afford tickets. Our cars have gas. Our eyes are not afflicted by permanent and debilitating cataracts. And yet, this time around we are on the fence. It's a big old dish of ho hum. Last year the Whiz scored in OT, we all left the Bank Atlantic Center chanting Ole Ole and we marched down Ocean drive, planted the Quebec flag and demanded that it be renamed la Route de l'Océan. If they win, it'll kick off the New Year celebrations in style. If they lose I'm going to wish I had spent the money on my son's college education a good bottle of Avion tequila.

New Year's Eve tonight. That's just unbelievable. Time accelerating. Enjoy your moments. We wish you a heartfelt Happy New Year and thank you for your encouragement this past year as we lifted this PK'ist jet off the ground. Despite the mediocrity that has left us all in relative disarray I still say: Go Habs Go.
