We Need To Wear Black For The Next 3 Days.

This is something I do with my buddies every time the Habs get knocked out of the playoffs. Dress in black for a duration of 3 days because life pretty much comes to a hault without the habs. You can say it is almost meaningless for a period in time. We declare it as the "Mourning Period", and it only makes sense to go on with the ritual if you're a true fan that feels the pain of losing the hopes of bringing home the cup. Share your gloom with the rest of the hockey world...

I probably wear black almost every day anyway, so I guess I'm in by default.

Well, they say black is slimming and I've put on a few pounds. We should ask Shabutie, our fashionista.

Not a fan of wearing balck for some reason.

In one of my classes this year, I read a study on hockey culture and suicide rates in Montreal, and apparently the suicide rate nearly triples in Montreal in the 2 days after the Canadiens are knocked out of the NHL playoffs.
