A miracle happened...

It might happen.

I have to share with you guys what happened on our way to Game 4 last Friday. We had 6 tix: me, my gf, my friend, his gf and two other buddies were coming to the game.We were suppose to go there with 2 Mustang 5.0L (mine and my bud's) but we decided to take my friend's mini-van to use only one car ( and save a crapola on gas $$$) . Problem is, the mini-van has 410 000KM, it's a Chevy Lumina Van. Still, it was running flawless. We all had Habs tuque on, CH jerseys, and a little flag on the mini-van ; the habs legends were protecting us... kinda. Now we fast-forward at 6h30pm, we'r stuck on the 10 HW,the sun is shinning like a glass mirror, huge traffic block, bumper to bumper, couple of cars greeting us with the Go habs Go chant... But at that point we knew we would be running late for the game. As we were listening to Ron Fournier and Dany Dubé analysing the night's game, the stress was building up.

All of a sudden, the van starts making a funny noise and POOOUF, HUGE white smoke comes out of the engine bay. We stop by the side of the road, everyone was watching the show - it was litteraly a show, and what else can you do when you're bumper to bumper with the sun kissing your face ? We'r members of the CAA' so we called them, they said it was impossible for them to come and get us because the highway is wayyy too overloaded ATM, the SQ had to take care of this. I asked my gf to tell me it was a dream - please - missing Game #4 in Montreal... It wasn't a dream. Reaching that point of no return, we were about to go and run to the Metro station (we were right beside) and go to the Bell Centre and leave the van there. Before doing this, we had to check the engine bay, the smoke was still rising thru the air... We open the hood, cough cough, smokes all over the place... Thru the smoke, we found out that the prestone reservoir blew up - nothing that serious. Then I said : "WE'R GOOD TO GO, LETS LETS GO"... Imagine the situation, the engine bay still smoking, we decided to take the road again, drove in the illegal right lane screaming :" WE NEED TO GO TO A GARAGE!!!!!" But no, we were heading to the Bell Centre... Guess what, we arrived right in time...

That night, a miracle happened...

I know I was thinking the same thing. Probably just a cover up story and he'll start trolling in about 3 hours time about the Canes being an unbeatable team and Habs not standing a chance.

Nice story. Reading it, though, I couldn't help but imagine you living it.

"We should have taken the mustang, this van is too slow"
"We'll never make in time, we're screwed"
"I told you we should've taken the mustang"
"Lousy Habs, I bet they start the game on time"
"We shouldn't have taken HWY 10, Lafontaine would have been so much faster"
"I betcha the Habs lose tonight"
"I can't stand Ron and Dany, the Canes' commentators are so much better"
"Lousy CAA, should've taken the private insurance"
"Ha, the smoke on my mustang is a lot thicker"
"Damn the SQ, the RCMP would've been here by now"

And on, and on, and on...

Not really, and remember I was the only guy with the poster who said " This team is about to go in a huge slump " thread to AGREE with him... And guess what happened.

Seeing as we are above .500 you were more right than wrong. That means NewHabsarea was right more often than you.
I thought it was funny when you predict a loss every game but now I realise that is really all you do on this board. Once your joke stops being funny you really become a useless poster.
Speaking of NewHab , you just joined him in a very selective club .
