Sunday Links: Just Keep Tweeting...

New, comments

Yoshi is almost there, Montreal bar owners hate fun, hidden messages in logos, and a very important TV event.

This is the only picture I could find of Osh & Bergeron. So...don't let this happen again, Twitter!

  • 'Gers fans, on the other hand, are just dealing with the emotional toil that a playoff loss takes on a hockey fan. [Blueshirt Banter]
  • If the Habs do even the Eastern Finals tonight, it'll just be another reason for us all to ask "Who the fuck is Dustin Tokarski, and where did he come from?" Sticktap to CrossCheckRaise for this great Mirtle piece. [The Globe & Mail]
  • For every road game this postseason, Montreal has sold tickets to the Bell Center to watch the broadcast in the arena. But local Montreal bars don't like the lost business, so they're suing because they hate fantastic things. [Puck Daddy]

VIDEOS:

This first video is heavy. But if you stick with it, I promise you the second will be adorably awesome.

There's no Game of Thrones video this week because there's no episode of Game of Thrones this week. Instead, HBO will show a film adaptation of a play that I implore you to watch called The Normal Heart, which chronicles the startlingly true early days of the AIDS epidemic in 1981 before even most doctors knew what they were dealing with. It's obviously some heavy subject matter, but vitally important for everyone to see. And beyond that, it's the type of thing HBO usually wins 30 Emmys for, so you know it'll be good. The movie tonight stars Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, and Jim Parsons, but to give you a fuller idea of the context, here's news segment on the Broadway revival from 2011.









Ok, I promised you adorable. But I bet you weren't expecting fucking kitty/hedgehog friendship levels of adorable, were you?


You're welcome.
