It doesn't pay to brag.... NaBloPoMo - Day 5

Montreal is definitely a hockey town.  We are passionate about the game and there are many who take every win (and loss) like a personal triumph (or tragedy).  Walk into any office, school or bar and you are guaranteed to hear hockey talk.

I enjoy hockey and do tend to follow along with the news but I'm not so fanatical as to know every statistic or lose my mind over it. That said, the Montreal Canadiens (our beloved Habs) have been on a winning streak since the start of the season and I had planned a post today to do a bit of bragging but then......

..... last night happened.  We lost 10 - 0 to the Columbus Blue Jackets!  That wasn't just a loss, it was a humiliation.  They totally handed the boys their asses!  Our star goal tender, cutie Carey Price, was not in nets last night and the team just didn't have his replacement's (Al Montoya) back.  You could see poor Carey pacing off-ice like a caged tiger, just wanting to get in there and help.  I don't know what the coaches were thinking.

It was a massacre, I tell ya!

So much for my bragging blog post........

Like any true fan, though, one loss will not deter me; not even one as monumental as that one.  I still love "les boys" of the Bleu, Blanc et Rouge (blue, white and red) and will be in front of my TV to cheer them on tonight.

This is what most fans were saying last night though:

What am I thankful for today?  A rainy day that gives me a good excuse to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea.

  1. I have never been a fan of hockey. I grew up near NYC so the Rangers were "our" team. My brother is huge fan to this day but I focused on basketball first and foremost.
