With full respect to you, I will say something about what you said in that interview, you mentionned you wanted to be a sports journalist.

In my opinion, a sports journalist needs to be impartial. Like they say, "no cheering in the press box." Otherwise you are labelled a fan, and your opinion cannot be counted on to be uncoloured by your "fanhood" for the Habs.

In any case, it does not stop you from becoming a media type, the superfan on TV, the local guy's opinion, but sports journalist...I think this media attention will make that harder then others who do not show an obvious bias towards a team.
