OT: Official coming out

I'm a born and raised Nordique. My dislike of the Montreal Canadiens runs deep in my veins. Montreal antics and favor from refs...it's hard to put into words how I hated the Canadiens, maybe somewhat like how the evil character in a Marvel comic book must feel.

I remember the excitement and the joy of seeing a young group of talent emerging into a solid respected hockey club in my Quebec Nordiques. The talents of Nolan, Ricci, Sundin...

I always knew that we had got hosed in the Sundin trade. Looking at the impact he brought to TO proves it. Never knew or saw the impact of a Beliveau, but to a certain extend - from what I know - Sundin could be set as being a European Beliveau.

Sundin aside - i.e. signing him or not - I must entrust my change of hart to two individuals that clearly know what hockey is all meant to be and how hockey should be managed.

To BoB and Timmins, I say thank you. Thank you for making me find that sweet spot that I once had while I was so passionate of my Quebec Nordiques.

Today, now identifying myself to a Montreal roster that is full of promise as rekindle my love for a game that unfortunately loses luster every season because of mismanagement at a league level - add a few unworthy GM's and owners to the mix to sustain visceral mismanagement.

Even so, even if a part of me will always cherish the Quebec Nordiques, I must acknowledge the pride I have in cheering for a fantastic team as are my Montreal Canadiens.

Go Habs Go. Let's show the world how hockey is managed, played and consumed!

Bring on the 08-09 season.

Coming outs are so 1990s. You're gay, so am I, who cares?

Traitor, yeah, some of my best friends are still either in hockey limbo - meaning that they have no favs for a team - or are still in the past. They overtly trash me for going with le bleu-blanc-rouge. In which case, I must admit that our 3rd away jersey helped a bit in my newly dedication to being a Habs fan.

As for being a "convert", I dunno, that just sounds...sex change....surely not going there

What did help my "transformation" is my 2 year old son whose interest in the game is surprising...so both of my boys will be brought up as Habs.
