Pft, I was doing the same for regular season games when I went to Cuba. It always took about 30 minutes before they showed hockey results

And you think the Canadiens will finish dead last after their first preseason loss.

When you drive an hour while on vacation in California to go to a bar owned by two former Quebecois in order to watch the Canadiens' home opener. And eat poutine.

Well, in April, you also have to wait after the baseball scores, NBA scores, NCAA scores, golf results, tennis results, nascar results, soccer scores and then, if you're lucky enough that the show is not over, you may have NHL scores...

When you pay mexican cab driver 120$ to make it in time to Playa del Carmen from Chitchen Itza to watch the Habs lose a regular season game.

When the playoffs start, you spend a few hours designing some new avatar on photo-shop.

When every time the habs score a goal, you have 3 people texting the score on your mobile phone.

When it's freakin' July 14th in the middle of the night and you're still browsing hfboards and writing a comment.

En passant, bonne fête la France!

- You've decided against purchasing an MP3 player because it had FM, not AM

- You watch rds or cbc more depending on the habs success when you are watching one or the other, thinking you have an impact on the result

- You are anglophone and you use the word "conciliabule"

- you are more excited about shorthanded situations than 5 on 5 situations.

- When your xbox live gamer Tag is Jacques Demers

I personally put into daily use terms that only a Habs fan would understand.

Like when I say to my wife "I've got a pocket rocket, so let's go upstairs for some Boom Boom".

or "honey, tonight the Chicoutimi Cucumber is starting at the visitors end of the rink".

You set your tivo to record the game (most of them start at midnight my time) because you have to be at work at 6am - and you stay up until 3am watching it anyway.

You know your a habs fan when:

You like the good seasons because of all the fun, and you like the bad seasons becauser you'll discover new young players and you wonder with excitement what changes the management will make in the summer.

Since I'm 7 years old (I'm 40), every season had been fun.

I know your pain DZ. Watching recorded games just isn't as exciting as watching live unless you know there is no possible way you can discover what the score was.

Personally, I'm dreading a Habs west coast road trip with a game played on a tuesday. I get home from training on the ice at 1am. After shower/sorting my kit/getting ready for work it's 2am. If there is then a game starting 3am that would leave about 1 hour for sleep after the game. Getting sleep before hand won't work as I'll be juiced up on Lucozade.
