We are everywhere.

After seeing a thread about a habs flag spotting at an non-hockey related event I wanted to make a thread specifically for showing, through pictures and videos just how widespread our fanbase is and how crazy we are about our team. Mainly i'm curious about learning of new famous people who are habs fans, as well as the lengths people go through to show their pride and the locations of these outbursts. I'll start off with an obvious one...

We certainly have fans everywhere in the hockey-playing world, and diverse fans... all of which amount to millions of hockey fans.

The Habs for hockey are like the Lakers for basketball, you see things/stuffs for these teams everywhere around the world. They are known everywhere.

Once wore a habs jersey during Oktoberfest in Munich, I was surprised at how much attention it attracted.

a recent reference would be Jay Baruchel, who rocked a habs hat in the opening scenes of the hilarious movie "This is the End'

I did the same in a french rock festival in Normandy, and a good dozen of people recognized it and gave me a "go habs go".
I also sported a habs t-shirt during a tv show I was invited in.

When the Habs made there fateful trip to the conference final I was wearing my jersey round town in Van (Nucks had just been eliminated) and errybody was giving me props as well as seeing the jersey on lotsa folks all over. I also remembering drinking with a fellow east coaster habs fan buddy after we lost where we made ourselves feel better by watching videos of Subban in juniors. Hehe

I sometimes wore a habs cap while living in a suburb of Tel-Aviv and got recognized on two different occasions.

I've worn various Habs apparel (t shirts, caps, jerseys, hoodies etc) all across Europe and got a very good response in Belgium, France and Switzerland.

I don't know why, but I've seen the same amount of Habs hats this summer than Leafs hats, but in the city of Toronto

Somehow I wonder how we could gain that much exposure in the non-hockey-playing world...

I've had my PK Subban T-Shirt in regular rotation all summer, wear it on the Red Line straight to Government Center.

I was getting off a cruise ship in San Juan, Puerto Rico last year in my Subban T-shirt and one of the baggage handlers recognized the logo and player and we had a little 5 minute chat about the Habs. It was pretty cool talking hockey with a born and raised Puerto Rican.

I saw a couple Habs jerseys when I lived in The Hague for a couple years (plus mine) there's quite a few european hockey fans but football dominates every other sport, rugby is pretty big too
