The whole HABs religion thingie was started by a university professor trying to get students to his class. Then media jumped on the opportunity.

A religion needs to offer a lot more : - a system of beliefs that explains the world, that helps you understand reality; - a set of values, of normative prescriptions guiding your behavior; - a sense, a purpose in life. It's hard to find that with the HABs.

My take is that many real fans actually see the habs as part of their family, as their friends (should a Hab player or Bob Gainey enter a bar, people would probably try to buy him a drink and talk hockey and not to bow and worship him as a bringer of light).

If you want to bring a scientific approach to this, it's not the philosophy/teology I'd suggest, but more sociology/social psychology, since I think the Habs are part of the group and individual identity for many Quebecers.

...or maybe an obsession for many, which would be the object of psychiatry

The teacher himself came with the conclusion that the Habs frenzy have some similarities, the Habs doesn't form a religion. When you look at it objectivly, their is almost no similarities apart from esthetic aspects.

I often feel that my province is a ghetto'd society. We are always infighting, we are often very cuthroat toward each other. The only thing that brings us together is the Montreal Canadiens, or ice rain. :-)

Good arguments guys. That's what I refer to as well. It's too easy to call the Canadiens a religion, as it's insulting to a religion to call the Canadiens one.

We are still sore from the religion canvas that was put on our society, and we use religious swear words all the time, so it's kinda easy to make the connection. But a passion is not a religion.

While I do feel it's a faith, while I do feel it's something I'm fanatic about, I don't think there's any deity involved. But it's easy to see the positive impacts the Canadiens have on us as religious ones.

For example, as we might see in the story, I might have called the Bell Center my basilica, but I also changed my mind right away and called it my second home. I don't know what they kept or not.

At first, I also thought it had many similarities with a religion, but changed my mind recently. It's more than that to me and it's less than a religion to religious people.

Totally agree with that. We are talking about an analogy, a simple relation of similarities that do exist which makes it close. They also say car racing is a religion for Italians, even more important to them than Christianity. It,s just an analogy, nobody needs to get their panties in a bunch because the analogy is not 100% accurate. It still has a lot of similarities, which is the point of the analogy. Stating that their is no deity invoved is just ridiculous captain obvious, I mean, no duh genius. We still do worship the TEAM. That's the analogy. Get over it.

I love having the habs as my faith(or for some a religion). It doesn't give me flawed rules that someone thought of 2000 years(or more, maybe less for some other religions) and today people still hold these as important. The best part about having a hockey team to follow and praise is that I choose to do this. I don't have to go to the BC and watch a game, I don't have to watch the games on TV, but I want too.

Religion in this day and age needs to adapt to the changes in the world. We should no longer fear our neighbors and those different then us. See that's where I find great similarity between sport and religions, is that we fight battles with those not with us and go to war in the playoffs, quite like people do on behalf of religion. But in sports no one is dying.

I would much rather have "the rocket" as my hero since I actually saw how he united a population(I didn't see as I am only 23, but some did and I at least got to read about it from someone who was alive when he did it), then read about some religious figure head and his story from 2000 years ago.

People can believe whatever they want, that's what's great about being human in a country where everyone has the right to believe what they want. In the end, I know where I stand. The habs are probably one of the most important things in my life today, will that hold true forever? i sure hope so, but I don't know what tomorrow bring. So is it my religion, not really, but sure does make for interesting conversation when someone asks(because sincerely for me religion offers me nothing but lies and rules, which I don't need. Unfortunately I can see that some people do need this, they need a path to walk on, I prefer finding my own way.)

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pissed!

I recorded the HD channel in order to get the best picture quality and they didn't show it! It only played on the normal channel, cuz the HD channel is Toronto mostly.

I didn't record the normal channel, but a friend did. I should receive it shortly. Unless someone else did record it?

I should receive a copy shortly.. Damnit..
