If you're too afraid to admit you've done this against the Habs, just mention another sports team (Or, if you've done it with another sports team, say that).
A lot of times in pre-game threads, I've seen Habs fans bet *against* the Habs. This always surprised me, as you'd think you'd *never*, even with a bad feeling, ever want to see the Habs lose. However, people do it, and sometimes, they are right.
If you've bet against the Habs and won, do you feel good for winning the bet or feel bad for being a poor fan? Does it make you feel good that the team didn't play well enough to win the game, or do you feel bad for not giving them support when they could have used it?
