Bringing back something that is dead, obsolete, or which never caught on to begin with is one of the noblest callings in life, I know. (That's why I now use the word "scenester," like all the time.) But this BS about reviving the Expos — always timed to coincide with the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season — needs to stop. NOW.
Now that the trade deadline has come and gone, the Montreal Canadiens and their fans have to accept the fact that the club will miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2006-07 campaign. If that wasn't bad enough, right now they are the Eastern Conference's basement dwellers, with a measly 58 points. That is 3 points less than the next team, and 11 points back of the 8th playoff seed, with only 18 games to go. Barring a late season miracle, the Habs will be watching the playoffs from their couches, and all us fans will be left to wonder: what went wrong?
