Kudos To The Best New Habs Blogs On The Block

New, comments
Every once in awhile, I happen across a Habs blog that is so great, that I just want to grab a megaphone and shout it out to the world.

By great, I mean distinct, insightful, perceptive, attuned, and humourous.

This one partical blog has me dripping spit...like that overweight, hormoanal 12 year old tuba player you dreaded in band class all those years ago.

Last season, these adjectives above honoured a site named "Theory Of Ice", that everyone with a insight for hockey thinking surely knows about by now. If you don't, then shame on you!

This seasons honouree, and leading by laps, is simply called "Four Habs Fans" - and it's a crackup.








"FHF" as they are becoming known, consists of 4 diehard habitants fanatics who do not have their tongues tied. They speak their minds, guts, and souls on everything Canadiens - and the season has yet to start. The fun at this site is just beginning.

These FHF, oddly enough, are all lawyers!

It's quite a concept - not only can they argue their case, they can all consume one and remain coherent while blogging.

Should I ever commit homicide with a hockey stick, they are on my speed dial.

One does not have to scroll down their site very far, to get the gist of their shared perspectives. It's quite a treat!

FHF is updated daily (in this, the off season!) and even makes non-news items entertaining. The contributors are all steeped in a historical perspective, but have eyes wide open to today's happening.

They have regular features titled "The Morning Skate", "Brushes With Habness", and "Je Me Souviens", which are as self explanatory as they are unpredictable.

A recent piece greatly ticked off a slew of Rangers fans, in a "10 Things I Hate About...." post.

Yeah, I hear ya!

Can't wait till they brutalize the Leafs....and will they be able to withhold themselves to 10!

In the sites first 43 days of existance, FHF set a Habs blogging record by posting 100 entries. On second thought, I'll hire someone else to represent me at my trial!

When it comes to the 2007-08 season, I'm more excited to read their musings than I am to write mine.
