The Calgary Barbra Streisands Vs The Team We Beat For A Stanley Cup

The Habs have not won a home opener since 2008-2009. So if one is looking for omens, there is that.

They are also injured. Cammo won't be in the house to gas Kipper high glove. Unfortunately, Campoli will also not be in the lineup, which means the Flames are going to have to find their turnovers somewhere else.

Now, let's talk about the Calgary Barbra Streisands.

So the goal song is terrible, and happens to have the words 'Barbra Streisand' at the end. We have been told that there is a version of the song that the Flames should have been using that takes the 'Barbra Steisand' out and replaces it with a 'yahoo' and some gun fire, but hey, it's not our fault that whoever played the song at the home opener didn't use that version.

(We will pause to let the reader reflect on the fact that for the home opener, the team couldn't get the right song loaded into the computer. The management of this team sucks, though, so it isn't surprising.)

Now, the goal song may be terrible, but it is very appropriate. First off, Barbra Streisand is an older woman, who is famous for her diva-esque behaviour. How appropriate, right? Because the Calgary Flames are an older team, who have so far played like women (by that we mean 'soft', ladies. We would take Wickenheiser on the roster over, say, Matt Stajan, in a second), and are famous for their 'Country Club' like behaviour towards the grind of the NHL season.

Further, it works because this club loves its 'BS' (Feaster and Kings bravado about challenging for the division, Jaromes insistence that the club did indeed give effort in the first two games.)! Right?

Anyways, this is probably a game the team should win, but we see a $62 million dollar payroll and assume a team spending that much should have a chance to win every game. We are of course wrong in this assumption, but to be wrong is to be human.

The moniker is going to stick until the Flames win a few games, by the way. Or the goal song changes. (Here's a thought: WE DIDN'T MAKE THE PLAYOFFS LAST YEAR WHILE USING THE SHITTY GOAL SONG. WHY WOULD YOU, CALGARY BARBRA STREISANDS, USE A SONG FROM A FAILED YEAR TWICE IN A ROW? PLAY 'I LIKE BEER' WHEN THEY SCORE, AT LEAST THE PLAYERS WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE! FUCK!) 

Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias Ken King should be fired.

  1. DB,

    Do you have the link or source for Iginla's Mea Culpa that they gave an effort the first 2 games (or was it just a radio/tv clip)...if he actually said or referred to that, they should give the Fuckin C to Giordano and put Iginla on the tradeblock...I will abstain from further venom until I can review the source.

  2. Radio/TV. Hopefully I heard it correctly. The usual 'awe shucks' routine out of the 'C'.

  3. Cue "I'm a Barbie girl . . ."

    My God these guys stink.

    We're hanging at Flames Nation tonight on the corporate swag if you want to swing by.

  4. Canucks Central, eh? Maybe I will. I will expose myself as a bitch when I say that the idea of getting downtown round 5 doesn't thrill me. It's nothing personal if I don't show.
