Little bit of history there on the person who dressed up as Badaboum, but sparse on the details of what exactly Badaboum is/was.

Kind of reminds me of the Chesire Cat, but also has some more canine elements to him/it as well. I'm stumped.

Some say that he still haunts the Colisée and that he feeds exclusively from leftover hotdogs. all we know is that he's called Badaboum.

I can always remember former NHL referee Bruce Hood (he who officiated the infamous Vendredi Saint 1984 game between the Nordiques and Montreal) telling a story about the first time Montreal played Quebec at the Colisee in October 1979, as he also refereed that game as well.

After the Nordiques beat Montreal in that contest, the audience was absolutely deafening and what really took him aback was that even after he and his officiating crew showered and got back into their street clothes and were ready to catch a cab back to their hotel (about an hour after the game ended), the rink area was still about half filled with people still singing and cheering and celebrating.

That doesn't sound too health lying but I hope we can see him again when hockey returns to quebec
