In the interest of heading off mass suicides, I thought it would be useful at this juncture to provide a small diversion from the black cloud of impending doom that has invaded the B’sphere. Recently, An ad campaign for Labatt’s Blue was launched with billboards along the my local section of Trans-canada highway. One of them says "Blue- aussi bonne que le but d’Alain Côté" (As good as Alain Côté’s goal). A Youtube search provided this short clip. Its in french, but basically it describes a controversy around a famous playoff goal by the Nordiques against that other team down the highway that still haunts the local some 20 years after it happened. One of the protagonists will defer your attention, if just for a moment, from the turpeur that presently threatens the B’sphere’s mortal coil.
