Not that there's anything wrong with that(and other Monday musings)
Jarred Tinordi's impressive NHL debut in New Jersey Saturday gave the Canadiens a dimension they've been missing on defence since Vladimir Malhakov: blue chip talent in a jumbo format. Tinordi doesn't have the offensive upside to be the next Larry Robinson, but the second coming of Rod Langway would be a perfectly delightful scenario. For the record, that's out-loud wishful thinking, not an expectation...I didn't hate the century old Vancouver Millionaires uniforms that the Canucks dusted off for their game with Detroit Saturday. I'm merely appalled that they wore white pants before Victoria Day...If the season-opening Formula One Australian Grand Prix was a harbinger, last year's competitive balance will be a theme again in 2013. There was nothing processional or predictable about the results in Melbourne, where Kimi Raikkonen took the checkered flag from seventh on the starting grid and represented Lotus as one of three different teams on the podium...With a crowd exceeding 20 thousand, UFC 158 at the Bell Center was the most successful homoerotic spectacle in Montreal since Kitten Kaboodle's drag queen revue in the upstairs room at the Cabaret Cleopatra. Apparently.
