That looks amazing! But it's an awfully shallow bowl, is it not?
I’d crush that bowl in like 5 gulps.
Did you know that pho is a relatively recent addition to Vietnamese cuisine?
It dates back to French colonial times.
Pho isn't pronounced phonetically. It's name is actually a derivation of the French "feu", as in pot-au-feu and is essentially a Viet version of that classic French stew.
And banh-mi "wheat bread", was obviously introduced by french baguette (and mayonnaise)
True but Lavoie's childish tantrum-like demeanor has nothing to do with debating, just a matter of common decency and maturity, seems to me. No need to make condescending put-down type faces just cause he doesn't agree with someone's opinion. Wait it out and then make your point. Lavoie self-destructed.
The twittosphere had the same opinion: he got schooled. Proof that sports reporters/figureheads are minor leaguers compared to the political reporters/figureheads.
Lavoie is a paid yes man, i'm almost certain MB is paying him personally.
Melnick is back on today after a couple of days off. I didn't hear the first 90 minutes of today's show but did he mention why his interview with MB was pulled for a few hours and then re-upped again? When it was first noticed that the interview was removed Rod Francis said they couldn't comment on it so there must've been some reason why it was pulled for a while.
The re-upped interview is the same as the original so I fail to see why it was even removed in the first place but I suspect we'll never hear it mentioned again.
He mentioned how the insinuations on social media about him not being on air, were BS. He had a trip to Trana where he spent time with his family, apparently his mother lives there. FWIW.
I didn't figure it was anything Melnick did or said has the reason why the interview was removed for a few hours. It's just that it was removed for a while and Rod Francis saying they couldn't comment on it so it makes one think something caused it to be taken down for a bit.
I guess we'll never know why it was taken down for a bit but it did create a little stir here for a little while.
What is Marinaro saying?
He just said people who wanted Sly gone for the past years are now upset he got let go and it wasn't his fault.
Where is he reading this? I haven't seen anyone be upset by Sly's firing.
The Lasalle Daily Bugle, probably.
Not that I disagree in principle, but Lavoie is setting the bar incredibly low as far as sports reporting goes.
I'm sure a prepared McKenzie or Lebrun or even Dubé could hold his own in that kind of situation. Beyond debating skills, Lavoie just came off like a child. Has little to do with what he does for a living.
Thanks Runner, I read your post and even if I knew what to expect I still watched (not that I was expecting anything else) Lavoie looks like a child in this. Grimaces, interrupting, says he respect Dumont's opinion than goes to shoot it down... I cringed a few times then closed the tab.
Acting like a disgruntled teenager arguing with his 'stupid' parents.
Also ... he's getting fat! Clearly, he's been eating up more than Bergevin's recycled excuses.
Perhaps he is the new food tester for that Improved fan experience that molson was touting!?
Perhaps that would explain why he defends him so passionately...
Is anyone surprised? I've said it before and I'll say it again. Dumbest media guy in the business (I know, stiff competition from Gaston Therien). Arrogant to boot. Every time I listen to him, my ears start bleeding and I have to switch channels.
He's like a spoiled brat who got handed the job by his dad. He would make Bergevin look like a genius if he was a GM.
Stephane Lebeau's interview was pretty damning for the whole Habs organisation. Lebeau would change the strategy entirely and focus on offense being generated by all five players instead of the current use of a defensive system with stay at home defencemen. He'd also tell potential draftees from Qc they'd be better off not being drafted the Habs.
Chantal Machabée has released her biography today called: Désavantage numérique. No doubt an interesting read.
I hope it's illustrated.
She’s done extremely well to have stayed in this macho industry for as long as she has and still be relevant. Especially considering she isn’t an ex hockey player, like Cassie Campbell.
I respect Machabee to the utmost. She paved the way for women in, like le_sean said, a macho sport in a world that was still pretty misogynistic, and always was a class act and behaved like a true journalist is supposed to. -Very- respected in the NHL...
I remember seeing her for the first time on Day One of RDS in 1989. That same day she also did a live hit on TSN as they introduced their new French language network. Her English back then was almost non-existent. She's pretty much fluently bilingual today, having been chosen to be a PA announcer at the Olympic hockey games in Sochi. She's done it all and is one of the very few original RDS on-air personalities who is still around, male or female.
Wonder if she outed Stephane Leroux in her book
She used to post sometimes on the old Pens board, she was a big fan of Mario Lemieux from the time he was in junior. She may have worked for Laval, can`t remember now.
She was well liked, I exchanged a few posts with her about the Habs.
