You know you're a Habs fan when at any given time, anywhere in the world there is at least one habs logo around you. (right now? 3. Carey Price figure behind me, name tag on laptop case and cellphone cover)
- when you watch the game on rds and watch the 60 minute game later in the same night
- When you wake up in the morning day game and you say to yourself today will be a wonderful day
-When your girlfriend can talk hockey with her habs fan co-worker and she know better the team then them even if she don't like Hockey just because you talk about the Habs everyday.
-When you see someone with Habs gear you say to yourself that this person is probably a good person
Hearing your little 7 year old daughter tattle-tell on your wife, her sister and their friend "Daddy, mommy is wearing enemy colours again!" and demanding that they go get changed whenever they decided to wear yellow and black outfits.
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.

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.
You guys think that's bad, I live in Brisbane Australia!
Games play the next day at 10AM for me. I skip classes so I can listen to games live, and I'm in med school!
Not only that, but internet here is too slow to stream video, so I have to listen to CKAC webradio.
