Guest mateus Posted April 13, 2008 Report Share Posted April 13, 2008 greetings gents, no this doesnt belong in the negative thread, MN sub-forum or anywhere else as this will most likely be a little rant which will be closed and forgotten in a day or two, but i wanna blow off some steam walked into a capsule sportive yesterday to pick up two caps which i thought were "worth" the 90$(dont ask...), the north east division and stanley cup chmapionship caps. now im walking into carrefour laval expecting the usual saturday crowd and a close to empty capsule sportive. little did i realise we won the cup as of two days ago! the place was hauled down except for a little entrance where two people could queeze through...they decorated it with a nice set of I-can-bench-press-350-lbs body/security guards...now i get anti theft devices, and it is playoffs so fine i just shake it off...its whats inside that really got me seing red, with no white and blue to cheer me up. HUNDREDS of people inside getting there hands on EVERYTHING with a habs logo on it. were not just talking the "normal" fan stuff...pillows, pillow cases, sandels, thongs, shooters, caps, the go habs go tees, shoes, pucks, balls, jerseys(not the cheap kind!) and everything unmentionable in between! now i get the "support your team" phenomena...but come on! spending 300-500$ just because they might have a shot at the cup? i spent 90 and i already want that money back! what really gets to me though is this: these people were no where to be seen when the habs were slumping! there not even basement or closet habs fans! there just puck bunnies(both sexes fpr clarification) reproducing faster that one can say "et le but!" and as much as i like to see this city support its team...i cant help but imagine thousands of angry people down at ste catherines before june rolls around... anybody else think its getting a tad bit out of hand?
