The economy is in the sh-ts. Even the owner of the Montreal Canadiens, one the most storied franchises in sport, needs to downsize. So the team is up for sale…

10 potentials buyers are bidding.

Among them:

La Grande Fromage herself, Celine Dion. In partnership with Guy Laliberte (Cirque du Soleil) and Quebecor Media.

Can you imagine?

Celine’s leg lunges and chest thumps on the ice at the Bell Centre? Maybe lunging chest thumps is exactly what’s needed to fire up a team that’s had no heart for most of the season.

Yeah. I said it. You might be pissy about it and you might say the Leafs suck it (and they do!) but can you really dispute it? I’m with the Habs second only to Toronto. And anything is better than the Senators. But if they’re going to make a charge post-season, we need a lot more.

We need some Celine!

A New Day has come!

Hush, love
I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me

And a bonus treat, because it’s been too long since Celine has cheesed up our lives – remember when she sang with Hologram Elvis on American Idol? Remember the mic drop? The mic drop at 3:08 cheers me on rainy days.
