I am a fan of the Montreal Canadiens and hockey.
I am a freelance writer and graphic designer ( Kidding about being a Habs’ fan ).
I was put on this earth in Lasalle , Qc. on September 7 1965 – twenty full years to the day after the Habs and hockey legend Jacques Lemaire was born. The former centerman and coach was also born in Lasalle. I would like to believe we drank from the same water and share our analytical skills for the game as well as our birthplace. Gosh darn it – if Guy Lafleur was my right winger,I would also be in the hockey hall of fame and have my name engraved on the Stanley Cup a few times .
Along with most kids growing up in the late sixties and seventies – I grew accustomed to the usual parade route along the streets of Montreal. It is hard to believe that it has been eighteen years since the Habs have won the Cup and I blame this fact on the curse of Serge Savard. The former G. M was a brilliant man who not only guided the Canadiens to two Stanley Cups – the hall of fame defenceman also made the Habs competitive each year he was at the helm of the storied franchise.
I coached, refereed and played hockey at the AA level for many years.
I sincerely hope my writings give pleasure to whoever may read them and remember – hockey is supposed to be fun !
