Portuguese fan crosses the Atlantic every year to support the MONTREAL CANADIENS
I'm a Portuguese citizen,
born, raised and living in Portugal since 1972
Became an unconditional HABS fan in 1991, the first time I visited Montreal as a tourist.
Ever since I've crossed the Atlantic for 10 times to support our TEAM,
next week (Oct.5, 2011) I'll do it again for the 11th time. Hopefully I'll be able to get tickets for the season opener at Centre Bell, and at least to 6 more games until the end of October, for I have to return to my country to get back to work and save some euros for the next season :)
my personal oath to the MONTREAL CANADIENS
