Sea Of White In A Sea Of Red: Habs Fans Wear White!!


16_for_25

Recommended Posts

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On February 9th 2009 the Montreal Canadiens will invade the Pengrowth Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta to take on the Flames. The goal is simple. To get all Habs fans who plan on attending the game to WEAR WHITE in an attempt to break up the "Sea of Red". We realize some of you hardcore Habs fans may have red Habs jerseys and have likely waited a long time to wear that jersey to a live Habs game. We're not saying don't wear that jersey but hey.... Don't wear a red Habs jersey lol. You've got untill February 9th to splurge on a white Habs t-shirt or even a nice new white Habs jersey. White towels would be a nice touch as well. Nothing would be sweeter than to have a Sea of White singing "Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole!" . Let's make it a home game for the boys! B)

Why do this in Calgary? It’s simple. Calgary is the only building in the league where the fans all wear the same colour every single game. It’s nothing but red unless you’re not a Flames fan. Every notice how goofey the Flames fan who wears a white Flames jersey looks at a home game? :lol: Anyways we all know the Habs draw big crowds when they’re on the road. There will be ALOT of Habs fans at the game in Calgary February 9th. The contrast of white on red will be amazing if we can get it to work. Make the Habs fans visable to the team.

Also if you guys know of any Habs fans or anyone who might attend this game and not be cheering for the Flames that night, tell them about this and tell them to tell others they know about. The more people who know the easier it’ll be to spread the word by February 9th. Even Oilers fans I’ve talked to have shown interest in supporting this. It’s been 3 years since Montreal’s come to Calgary. Let’s make it a night to remember.

If anyone's intersted the link to the facebook group is posted below.

Such a bummer!!! the Sea of White was my idea and I coudln't even get tickets! :shakehead Sucks pretty bad when you're on ticketmaster's site right as the bell sounds(I was hitting refresh form 9:55 am on), type everything in and have your ticket request in within 8-10 seconds after tickets went on sale only to be told it's sold out. That's insane. It seriously told me sold out within 15 seconds of them going on sale. I have a friend who has a friend who works for ticketmaster. She tried to get me tickets but said there was absolutley nothing she could do cause they sold out in 93 seconds. 93 SECONDS!!!! All I want for Christmas is 2 tickets :(

Just so we don't forget about this I'm bumping it. It's less than two months away. Any and all help spreading the word about this is greatly appreciated. If you're not able to be at the game just remember how proud you'll be watching on tv if we pull this off. Other fans who don't cheer for the Flames are supporting this so don't shy away form telling everyone and anyone. Alos again here's the link to the flyer Antoniojr made up. It looks awesome so feel free to save the image and spam e-mail's with it :lol:

Oh yeah and it looks like I got tickets. Wooo!

Also apparently finding White Habs jerseys in Calgary is next to impossible right now. Whatever that means. Not sure if it's good or bad.

One month to go before the Habs fans in Calgary show the league what were all about. Keep spreading the word everyone. It's coming up fast and both teams are super hot. It's shaping up to be a wicked showdown between the two best Canadian teams in the league.

Again everyone don't be shy of taking this flyer Antoniojr made up and spread it around. http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-...89116_7872.jpg

I know it's obvious but don't forget the whole point of this is to wear white to the game

What we're asking for is some volunteers who will help with a barage of e-mail promos. We need to get the message out loud and clear to all those who plan on going to this game. We wanna bombard the Calgary radio stations for a week leading up to the game. If one guy does it it'll get ignored, but if stations are recieving a dozen or so e-mails from different people everyday somebody is bound to anounce it on the air. Any type of mention on air is huge. Once the idea is out there Habs fans will do it even if the people on radio laugh at it. Another avenue we wanna hit is The Score. Most likely the Hardcore Hockey Talk show with Steve Kouleus. I'll round up a bunch of e-mails for different stations and post them in this thread. If you're interested in helping say so and I'll send the info to you via personal message as well. Remember even if you'e not attending the game imagine the pride you'll feel when you watch on tv if we pull this off. So guys please help with this, I know we can make it awesome. This is the flyer we'd like everyone to send out attatched to the emails as well. http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc...989116_7872.jpg

Also is it possible to move this subject into the main section as the game day gets closer? Nobody reads it in here.
