Wouldn't it be like a secular cult of hedonism? No explenation on life at all, just instant emotionnal satisfaction and some looking forward to more lifely satisfactions??

I don't need a study to tell me the Habs are a religion, I put hockey as my religion on my Facebook page, I am changing it tonight to the Habs. We could have a holy trinity, Koivu = God, Price = Jesus, The Rocket = Holy Spirit. The retired jerseys could be the apostles. Cool idea for a course though.

We could say the the CH is a cult of sportifs (Culte de l'acte sportif) wich i follow... but a religion? Ther's absolutly no mysticism nor dogmatism, no revelations nor moral guidelines and absolutly no higher being. The only thing that links it to the word "religion" is the fact that religion, as a word (étymologiquement), means "to get together".

And Wittgenstein is not à propos, since there is no discours nor any proposition in question.

They should give the "accomodements raisonnables" for the members of Canadiens religion. No school, no homeworks, no exam and no work on a game day.

Similar results were derived in the study conducted in UK about the behaviour of fans of Premier League Football (soccer) teams.

The research indicated that the behaviour of the fans resembles that of religious fundamentalists. Naturally in England football is connected to violent riots, huliganism and other more than noble activities, but I would assume that some of the found similarities would apply also to hockey fans.

After all, the hate of rivals, blind belief on your own team do have some characterictics that are common with fundamental religious beliefs.

Why? It sounds like a pretty interesting sociology course.

Or do you think sociology in general is a waste?
