Funny stuff


A friend of mine just sent me this!  Always a connection with GnR everywhere hey?  lol

ANAHEIM – Louis Leblanc was on his way to a Guns N’ Roses concert Monday night when he received a phone call that forced him to change his plans.

Instead of listening to Axl Rose and the band sing Welcome to the Jungle, Hamilton Bulldogs head coach Clément Jodoin told him to go home and wait for a phone call,

The call from Montreal general manager Pierre Gauthier informed Leblanc that he was being called up by the Canadiens.

“I got the word late, 10:30 or 11 o’clock,” said the Canadiens’ first-round draft choice from 2009. “I was excited. It’s an honour. I still don’t believe it. Time is flying.”

The plan was for Leblanc to spend the entire season in Hamilton, but a three-game suspension for Max Pacioretty has left the Canadiens shorthanded as they open a three-game road trip Wednesday night against the Anaheim Ducks (10 p.m., RDS, TSN Radio-990).

Head coach Jacques Martin said he wasn’t sure whether Leblanc would make his NHL debut against the Ducks. He didn’t arrive in time Tuesday to join the team for practice, where the big news centred on Andrei Markov. The defenceman, who hasn’t played in more than a year, was paired with fellow Russian Alexei Emelin, while defenceman Yannick Weber was back on the fourth line.

That led to speculation that Markov would play on this trip, but Martin didn’t sound optimistic when asked whether Markov would face the Ducks.

“I think with Andrei, I don’t know when he’ll be back,” Martin said. “If you look at (Sidney) Crosby, he practiced for a long time before coming back. I think it’s good for (Markov) to be involved in intense practices. We haven’t had a lot of intense practices because of the number of games we’ve had. Yesterday and today, it was good to be involved in more hitting and more game-situation type practices.”

Markov has been cleared for contact for nearly two weeks and Martin said the decision on a comeback would be up to the player.

Pacioretty’s absence left a hole on what has been the team’s top line and a struggling Michael Cammalleri will attempt to regain his scoring touch with David Desharnais and Erik Cole. Andrei Kostitsyn will take Cammalleri’s spot on a line Tomas Plekanec and Brian Gionta.

“We have to juggle because we’ve lost Pacioretty,” Martin said. “That line was going well, giving us some good minutes so we have to try to find a solution. We need more from our top guys, no matter what line they’re on. We have to elevate our play on this trip.”

The Canadiens are hoping the change in scenery helps lift Cammalleri out of a funk.

“He didn’t have a good weekend,” Martin said. “We want to get him back to his standard.”

Martin said he would wait until Wednesday to announce his starting goaltender. With back-to-back games on tap, it is likely Peter Budaj faces Anaheim with Carey Price playing Thursday in San Jose. The trip concludes with a Saturday afternoon game in Los Angeles.

And Martin said he wasn’t sure where Leblanc fits, but right wing on the fourth line looks like a good fit if Weber is needed on defence.

“He’s having a good season in Hamilton.” Martin said of the newcomer. “He’s a player who has good vision, is good without the puck. Last year at the world juniors, he played right wing. Unfortunately, he missed training camp this year because of (a shoulder) injury, but we feel he has a good upside.”

“I think it’s going well,” said Leblanc, who has four goals and six assists in 14 games with the Bulldogs. “The team is kind of struggling with six losses in the last six games. It’s not great, but it’s a young team with a lot on injuries. I think I’ve improved every game and have been able to stand out in some games. So far so good.”

November 28th, 2011 Hamilton, ON @ Copps Coliseum


OH CANADA!

Copps Coliseum is a sports and entertainment arena, on the corner of Bay Street North and York Boulevard, in Hamilton, Ontario. Depending on event, the Copps Coliseum has a capacity of up to 19,000.

It is named after the former Hamilton mayor, Victor K. Copps.

Saturday Night Live has used an exterior of the arena in many ESPN Classic sketches.

Hamilton  is a port city in the Canadian province of Ontario. Conceived by George Hamilton when he purchased the Durand farm shortly after the War of 1812, Hamilton has become the centre of a densely populated and industrialized region at the west end of Lake Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe. On January 1, 2001, the new City of Hamilton was formed through the amalgamation of the former city and the other constituent lower-tier municipalities of the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth with the upper-tier regional government. Residents of the old city are known as Hamiltonians. Since 1981, the metropolitan area has been listed as the ninth largest in Canada and the third largest in Ontario.

Hamilton is home to the shared Royal Botanical Gardens, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, the Bruce TrailMcMaster University and Mohawk College. The Canadian Football Hall of Fame can be found downtown right beside Hamilton City Hall and across town to the east, the Canadian Football League‘s Hamilton Tiger-Cats play at Ivor Wynne Stadium.

Partly because of its diverse environment, numerous TV and film productions have been filmed in Hamilton, regulated by the Hamilton Film and Television Office. A growing arts and culture sector garnered media attention in a 2006 Globe and Mail news article, entitled “Go West, Young Artist,” which focused on the growing art scene in Hamilton. The article highlighted local art galleriesrecording studios and independent film production.

November 26th, 2011 Camden, NJ @ Susquehanna Bank Center


Camden New Jersey tonight!  Next stop…CANADA

The Susquehanna Bank Center is an outdoor amphitheater/indoor theater complex in CamdenNew Jersey, United States, on the Delaware River waterfront across from Philadelphia.

The Susquehanna Bank Center opened in June 1995 as the BlockbusterSony Music Entertainment Centre (or E-Centre). In 2001, the amphitheater was renamed the Tweeter Center at the Waterfront. Susquehanna Bank purchased the naming rights in 2008.

The year-round facility serves as a 25,000 capacity outdoor amphitheater during the summer months which features a lawn with video screens, computerized sound enhancement, and a clear view of the Philadelphia skyline, Delaware River, and theBenjamin Franklin Bridge to the northwest. In the fall and winter months, the Susquehanna Bank Center converts to a fully enclosed, climate-controlled, flexible-capacity theater for up to 7,000 people offering a variety of concerts, Broadway theatrical productions, and family entertainment.

The Susquehanna Bank Center is adjacent to the Battleship New Jersey, Wiggins Park, and the Adventure Aquarium.

The city of Camden is the county seat of Camden CountyNew Jersey. It is located across the Delaware River from PhiladelphiaPennsylvania. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a total population of 77,344. The 2010 population represents a decline of 2,560 (3.2%) from the 79,904 residents enumerated during the 2000 United States Census, with Camden ranking as the 12th largest municipality in the state in 2010 after having been ranked 10th in 2000.

Camden was originally incorporated as a city on February 13, 1828, from portions of the now-defunct Newton Township, while the area was still part of Gloucester County. On March 13, 1844, Camden became part of the newly formed Camden County.

Although once a thriving center for manufacturing and industry, Camden is perhaps best known for its struggles with urban dysfunction. Three Camden mayors have been jailed for corruption, the most recent being Milton Milan in 2000. Since 2005 the school system and police department have been operated by the State of New Jersey; the takeover will expire in 2012. In 2008, Camden had the highest crime rate in the U.S. with 2,333 violent crimes per 100,000 people while the national average was 455 per 100,000. Camden public schools spend $17,000 per student per year and two thirds of the students graduate. Two out of every five residents are below the national poverty line.
