To end off the week on a funny note, today I have my guest writer DTV providing this post. If you want to read more of his stuff, check out his blog at Don't Trade Vinny or his twitter. Anyways, I'm always glad when he sends me random bits of funnyness, I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I do.
What Guy Boucher Really Said in French
The only real moment of weirdness in Boucher’s welcome interview the other day was a 15-20 second snippet of him speaking to some members of the Canadiens brass in French. As many of you probably were, I was wondering just exactly what the hell he was saying. Well, as always, I (DTV) did some digging, and found a translation:
“Listen Montreal, I understand some of you are a little upset with me. I get it. But look, the guy they had the last two years was a REAL dumbass. Someone had to come and save these poor bastards. I know how familiar you guys are with Mr. Vincent Lecavalier. That idiot didn’t even have him on the top line. Can you believe that?
Anyway, I want to thank you again for the opportunities I had there, and the Canadiens will always be in my heart.
Look, um, while I’m thinking of it, how attached are you guys to Mr. Halak? The goalies here are a couple of bumbling idiots that my twin daughters could out-play. And I know how fond of riots you guys are, sticking Mr. Price back in goal may earn you a few more.
Listen, I know this is Stevie’s job, but, we’ll give you Mr. Mike Smith, Mr. Matt Walker, a draft pick, and ah hell, Mr. Alex Tanguay for Mr. Halak and Mr. Subban. Have your people call my people. Make it happen.”
