Easily the most exuberant I've ever seen a Mtl sports crowd, easily.
To be honest, I don't remember much about those home openers, except that a good friend of my mine spilled a tray of 6 beers (entirely), rushing back to our seats just before game started. If memory serves me right, we were well over 90 000 fans at that game. I don't remember Dickie Harris doing anything special, but I do remember Dickie Harris. But that Expos Friday night game, I agree, was something else. None of that usual "when is it going to be finished?" stuff from my g/f.

Maybe we were 95 000 for the Als opener...
