Are there any rules I have to
follow in being a Habs fan?
Well here are some pointers:
1 - Hate the French media with a passion, same thing goes for Don Cherry also.
2 - Piss off any fan from any other team, even when they're in their car and its a police car. (always carry matches, they just may come in handy)
3 - Ask..no.. DEMAND that Koivu speak French.
4 - Make sure you often make outlandish trade proposals like "Halak+Ryder+2nd pick for Crosby or Lecavalier" and make sure you find a valid reason why that trade would be so good for the other team.
5 - Winter is a beautiful season that can be put in two simple words for a Habs fan: Canadiens and beer. (or is it beer 1st... and Habs 2nd..?)
6 - Remember: its always the Refs fault. Repeat after me...Refs Fault!
7 - You shall always dine on poutine before a game and learn to distrust and eschew the Pretzel people. They are not worth your time.
8 - A Habs jersey you will wear on every game day (even over your 3 piece suit at your job) and never shall it be washed because, well, there's beer on it and it smells good.
9 - The Bruins you will hate and often mention the words 'Lucic and crossdresser' or 'Savard and stick love' in the same sentence. Do this often when on the Bruins board. They will like you.
10 - As a Habs fan, you are part of the best fans in hockey, anywhere in the world. Remember that, cherish it, love it. And be arrogant as much as you want with other teams fans because , as a Habs fan, it is allowed since you ARE the superior fan!
