Juan Bell? Looks like a possible J at the beginning and looks like it ends with 2 L's, although I don't really see a B in there lol. IIRC, he played with the Expos in 95..

Nats off to a decent start this season, looks like 5-5.
Anyone think they'll hover around the .500 mark this season?

Don't worry, still 152 potential losses out there!

Well, I was watching Fringe tonight and in the other universe (the one where Peter was stollen), the Expos still exist.

Got a chance to catch a bit of the FOX game of the week on Sat aft. One guy was wearing an old school Expos Cap in the stands at Yankee Stadium & the crew showed it on camera & during breaks they started talking about the Expos all game, this was the Yankees/Cleveland game... the memories. Professionals in the game right now miss our city.

One of the broadcasters was explaining the letters in the symbol & another suggested that there should have been a K in there for all those great pitchers/Lancers.

Those are everywhere, I've seen them for sale at Eaton's Centre in Toronto, so if that's the case, then... if that sporting goods store is still @ Alexis-Nihon Plaza/Atwater, they will have them or be able to order one for you. There was another great sports shop at the Big Mall in St-Laurant that I saw those at last year or the one before. The tri-color Expos cap is one of the biggest sellers at the moment, you could thank Rap for it...

Thanks! I'll check it out.

And to the guy who said he'll bring the Expos when he's mayor, I'll finance it dude right after I make a few billion and buy the Habs as well

Seriously though my life time dream would be to somehow be involved in bringing back the Expos. I can just imagine 30,000 + fans leaving Expos games and coming out on Crescent or St.Laurent on a nice summers day. It would be much like the atmosphere of this town when the Habs make a deep playoff run, simply incredible.

@Scotty

If you can't find one, you can get an all red with blue bill fitted as a last resort(page #4), or one of the other 50 or so....

That's sad to hear. RIP Dick.

I went to a few Jays game last week and then was when I realized how much I truly miss Baseball in our city. They were the first MLB games I'd gone to since the Expos left and The feeling of being in an open air Stadium in Downtown Toronto really was cool. The first couple of games brought back some memories, I'd have to say there was only about 16 or 17K at those games and not a very good atmosphere. The third game I went to on Canada Day had a terrific atmosphere (I think they said there was 45, 000 at that game). I sat there wondering how things could have been at Labatt Park.

Yeah 43!

The team will be back, even if it takes 20 years. Montreal beat out Buffalo for a franchise in 1969, You cannot even compare a City of Spirit like Montreal to Tampa & eyeballs are out, won't happen overnight, but never stop posting talking Expos, every single human counts.

Hopefully we get it done in 5-7-10, but survive 20 just in case. ;-)

Believe!

My friend and I sitting atop the Green Monster at Fenway Park a couple of weeks ago. You guys have no idea how much the Expos are loved by the people in Boston. SO many people stopped us to talk baseball and how it's a shame the team got stolen from us, etc. Was just surreal being in a place where you could have a baseball conversation with anyone on the street.

I guess some Americans would say that about hockey in Montreal.

It was ****ing cool, though.

If you stop at Yawkey way again, always stop at the Pub accross the street 2 hours before game ask for a pitcher & tip a few decent bucks 5 is good. The bar keeper will see your Expos caps/jerseys & trade the bars! ROW12 for your crap tix(ROW 12 George Wendt's old tix).

always! Shh it's a secret for Expos fans. LOL It's True!

Edit: There's only really about 100 real people reading this post anyway.

Of course this only works when your with your girl or Civil, doesn't for a Van of Habs fans getting out with ball bats. ;-)
