while we're on the topic of mothers brothers best friends sister, I think it would be a fun time to reveal a true story of mine.
I wanted to go to the Feb 20th game vs Washington and when I got off work the tickets I was looking for (expensive ones since I didnt wanna go from PEI to MTL for cheap tickets) were all sold out. I went back to work the next day and a lady I was working with said she might be able to help me because her good friend is the mother of Radek Bonks' wife. I ended up getting 2 tickets for the game (I had to pay for them of course) sent to me in the mail from Radek Bonk himself and I am sitting right behind the Canadiens bench with all the wives.
I couldn't believe that a lady from PEI could wind up getting me tickets to a Canadiens game that had all the good tickets sold out, and do it all with one phone call. It was pretty cool.
Anyways, i'm psyched and can't wait to see Ovechkin.
I was at the Canadiens/Leafs game day skates yesterday morning and Higgins is just dying to get back on the ice, he spent the entire practice watching the team at the bench licking his chops to get back in. But my guess is that he would have to be skating at least a week before he returns, so if he expects to be back soon hopefully he will start skating this week by himself.
By the way, Patrick Roy does love the Habs still, that's a stupid assumption to make. He still watches every single habs game and follows them closely and I know this because my ex-gf worked as the secretary for his office for Quebec Remparts. And I was waiting outside of his office for her (very nice office by the way, Marcel Aubut's former office) he came of his office running and panicking because his TV didn't work and he was missing the Habs game. Moreover, this was during the Rempart's game when he still head his functions as General Manager so instead of watching the team he owns and works for, he was catching the Habs game.
Patrick Roy is a habs lover through and through. And he has the Habs jersey he won the stanley cup with hanging on his wall in his office (I don't know which one though).
