Super Bowl XLIVGO COLTS.
Habs can grab 6ththe habs have an opportunity tonight to grab possession of 6Th place in the eastern conference. with a win tonight the habs will have 60 points in 58 games, just over .500 on the season. but to do so the habs will have to go through the free falling Bruins. entering the game a franchise tying eight game loosing streak, the Big bad bruins will be looking to change there fortune against a habs team that just came off an inspiring win over the Canucks this past Tuesday night.
with both lineups being mostly hurt this season, the game should still be interesting to watch. Lapierre even said that it will be playoff hockey till the end of the season. the habs have a golden opportunity to continue feeding on the momentum built during there last game. they have all the cards in there favor. but with the roller coaster year like the habs have had some might still have worries about a win a tonight.
the coach of the Bruins, Claude Julien was given a vote of confidence from his GM last week, as was Hitchcock 3 weeks ago, look were he is now. often said as being the kiss of death, speculations are that it might be the last game for Julien, depending on the outcome.
will the habs win? will it be the Julien good bye party? what ever it is were in store for a war tonight!

Bacon > SexAsked to choose between bacon and sex, 43 per cent of Canadians would choose...bacon!
Maple Leaf celebrates launch of new reclosable packaging with a For the Love of Bacon survey
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - According to a recent national survey, Canadians are passionate about bacon. When asked to choose between bacon and sex, more than four in 10 (43%) chose bacon! Maple Leaf commissioned this Angus Reid For the Love of Bacon survey to mark the launch of their newest product innovation, Maple Leaf Reclosable Bacon.
"We wanted to probe how deeply rooted Canadians' passion for bacon is - and the For the Love of Bacon survey sure opened our eyes!" explained Adam Grogan, VP Marketing, Maple Leaf Foods. "Our research also told us that Canadians' number one frustration with typical bacon packaging is that it can't be reclosed (71%) and that it's too messy (52%). We know people love bacon, and now with Maple Leaf Reclosable Bacon, they'll love the package too!"
The packaging innovation should be welcomed, according to additional survey results, as nearly three out of four survey respondents (73%) said they love bacon. In fact, nearly one in five Canadian men (18%) agreed that some days, they just can't survive without bacon.
Bacon: The key to a man's heart?
Ladies, thinking about which fragrance will woo a man? Think bacon. When asked to rank various aromas by preference, 23% of men ranked bacon as number one.
And it seems bacon lovers think they are better lovers. When asked if they are good lovers, four out of five respondents (82%) who said they love bacon, also said they are good lovers. And when asked if they are romantic, four out of five respondents (81%) who said they love bacon also agreed they are romantic.
The survey also revealed some noteworthy regional differences. It may be bacon trumps love in the Prairies. Nearly one in four of respondents (23%) from Manitoba and Saskatchewan wondered if 'my partner loves bacon more than me'. Maybe a little more sizzle in the bedroom instead of the kitchen is in order...
Of note - western Canadians are especially enamoured with bacon. Of respondents from British Columbia, 50% said they would give up sex before bacon, versus 37% of respondents from Quebec.

Should Habs Sell or Buy Come Trade Deadline?With the latest Mike Cammalleri injury to the already anemic Canadians line up, some speculate that Bob Gainey should try to land a big deal seeing that the Habs still sit only 3 points out of 6Th place in the eastern conference. the question is should the habs sell assets and think about rebuilding around top draft instead.
with only 28 days till the trade deadline, Gm Bob Gainey will have to make some stressful decisions in the weeks to come. what ever he does decide to do, it should be done quickly because the standing are changing daily, and with the Toronto-Calgary blockbuster trade breaking the ice, some habs fans are waiting impatiently with out non-shalent GM.
i ask you this if you are bob gainey, what would you do?
Oscar NominationsFor anyone who cares.
By the looks of it most of the winners have already been decided, should be pretty much the same as the Golden Globes, but the best Pic category is interesting since there are 10 noms this year. Happy District 9 got nominated, one of my favorite movies of the year.
Tarantino is nominated for Best director, best screenplay and for the movie itself (not to mention Waltz for best supporting actor), he best win one of those three!
