how did you become a HABSFAN??

To some its obvious--born in or around montreal and its a given. to others theres a story-- lets hear the story

heres mine--growing up in Toms River, NJ and i am 10-11 years old. my mom comes home with a white jersey. no clue who what where but she got it on sale and she gave it to me. that is my start. i would listen to an old radio, messing with the antenna to catch the games. mostly caught french brdcst but not understanding i would listen to crowd and announcer for excitment. [everything sounds exciting in french]. when i started to drive i would drive until i got reception and listen to games. i used to sneak out of class in college [night classes] to watch when they were in the cup.

when i met my 2nd wife and explained to her what i would do; she asked--hey wanna grab pizza and listen to the game in the car?? IT WAS LOVE pittsburgh vs the habs..IN ENGLISH!!. ha ha..then for valentines day, yes valentines day she buys me a directtv dish when they were only ones with the hockey package. then she asked a question i didnt have an answer for.. have you ever gone to montreal to see them play? well that was 1999 and every year since then we have gone to every home opener except for this one. we also go early in the new year to a rival game [boston, toronto, ottawa etc]. this year the only game for us will be philly on april 15th. 5 out of our 6 kids plus bf/gf all have gone with us and now with 2 grandkids i am starting a 3rd generation

ALL BECAUSE MY LATE MOTHER BOUGHT A JERSEY THAT WAS FOR SALE-- thats my story how about yours???
