Plan the parade

Most gratifying aspect of the W: 

Solid play by a lot of kids: Lars Eller, wee David Desharnaid, Ryan White, Robert Mayer, Max Pacioretty.

P.K. Subban was spectacular … maybe a tad too spectacular. But the Bell Centre loves him.

Plus a solid two-way effort from long-dormant AK46


  1. Keith says:

    I have it! We need a Habs TV for sure.

  2. quentin_stuckley says:


  3. andrewberkshire says:

    Still out of left field, doesn’t make it untrue. Just commenting on how I was taken off guard by that one. Sucks because Avtsin was looking promising.

  4. topher5468 says:

    I guess it’s CJAD and Moffat and Momesso

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  5. Chuck says:

    Michel Lacroix… suddenly, I’m feeling really homesick!

  6. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    No one has RIS! haha

    Why can’t RDS view this man, this sucks. I was so happy leaving school today…thought I’d catch some Canadiens hockey tonight.

    Is there such thing as a Habs TV? Leafs have a Leafs TV and it plays every single one of their games!

  7. petrov14 says:

    All I can find is TORvsPHI and CHIvsDET, this sucks.

    Okay Boone, no live stream so its up to you to make us feel were there.

    I know its been asked 100 X but does anyonne have a link for the game tonight?

    This friggin’ blows! No live stream!

  13. showey47 says:

    Obyrne wearing an A tonight? Very happy for him.

  14. SeriousFan09 says:

    Agree, first negative report, this guy dropped the KHL specifically so he could come over here. However, CKAC is hardly the gospel either.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  15. Mike Boone says:

    I think it was Martin McGuire. He’s close to the team and doesn’t trade in BS or rumours.

  16. andrewberkshire says:

    That CKAC report sure came out of left field, everything else I’ve read says Avtsin has been very impressive in camp and his attitude is fine.

  17. habs4ever2894 says:

    Anyone have a website to catch this game in it’s entirety? I want to see it all not just bits and pieces on RIS

  18. petrov14 says:

    EGG line, I like it.

    As mentioned below, really would love a stream to the game! Please helppppp!

  20. dleb84 says:

    What radio station is the game broadcast on?


    radio link?  stream link?  any help would be great. 

  21. scrowe21 says:

    Looking for a stream for the game tonight..anyone?



    My spinorama shootout goal with Cammy

  22. Keith says:

    I’m happy to say I have RIS, looking forward to a decent one. Let’s see what Eller can do tonight. GO HABS GO!!!

    Identifying the perfect goaltender for the city of Montreal.

    A must read for anybody who has chimed in on the goaltending. 

    ______________________________________ Gionta for Captain.

  24. showey47 says:

    I have to admit i’m a little concerned about the ckac report on avtsin. Not if he isn’t ready for hamilton,but more about if he is showing some attitude about maybe having to play in the Q.

  25. Shiloh says:

    Is there a web link for tonight’s game?

  26. New says:

    You know…Chris Boyle writing on Robert’s  Eyeontheprize (thanks Boone) may be on to something. Actors have stage names. Why can’t Price  play under the name Boule (silent e)? What are the fanatics going to yell then? Price?

  27. Rugger says:

    So ESPN thinks the Habs will suck this year.  I’m okay with that since they know nothing about Hockey. They have Auld at 7 wins so Habs are at 72 points plus OT losses.

  28. GrimJim says:

    Speaking of “you think Mtl fans are tough…” Peter Maher the Calg play-by-play guy said on the radio today that when Mike Vernon was the Flames goalie he was regularly and consistently jeered by fans because he was a Calgary native “with a real swagger” and the other homeboys thought he had got too big for his britches when he turned pro. BUT not only would they jeer Vernon but they would jeer and catcall Vernon’s parents sitting in the stands so much that the parents stopped going to Vernon’s games.

  29. aemarchand11 says:

    Shultz is playing tonight.. RDS had an interview with him, hes very excited. Avstin will not play, but he is not injured I think they want to play him with Pleks and Cammalleri maybe??

    Go Habs Go!

  30. Chuck says:

    Kind of puts things into perspective, doesn’t it?

  31. Fant-HAB-ulous says:

    Martin McGuire’s piece, while probably accurate, actually means nothing. So if Carey hates it here, he can go. It’s not like there are a shortage of NHL caliber goalies that aren’t available.

    It would be sad, but if it’s what’s best for Carey then so be it. Like all jobs and all people, he is a replaceable asset (albeit not with anyone currently in our system).



  32. HFX-HabFan says:

    Looking forward to seeing the EGG line in action, and hopefully watching Ryan White play with plenty of jam!

  33. Richrebellion says:

    Love the article by chris boyle and finally im starting to see a turn in the media! Rational thinking and people wanting to stand against the idiots who boo their own team! Fans wonder why no one wants to play here and why management can’t  get any superstars here. Well take a look in the mirror because its you, you’re the reason. Now wake up realize you are hurting the organization in which you claim to love. I hear boone and people say its your right to boo since you pay so much to see a game at the bell and it is. However, as a fan (if you are actually fans) you have no right to boo and by doing so you demonstrate the exact opposite. So decide now, are you fans of les habitants? or just pessimists who are depressed with their sad lives and take it out on Carey Price? 

  34. Mats Naslund says:

    Best blog I’ve read on the goalie situation I’ve read in a long time. It makes me crazy because people think that they are entitled to boo their own goalie.. as if that hasn’t been our downfall since Patrick and beyond.

  35. Harani says:

    It won’t be the WHOLE game. It’ll be bits and piece and you would want to throw your remote at the TV when they cut off to show some Football or Baseball highlights in the middle of a powerplay. But it’s better than nothing and keep your radio on.

    “It must be love!”

  36. Harani says:

    Another good one from Down Goes Brown on the Fantasy pools.

    “Be aware of your league’s roster rules and the potential consequences of not following them. For example, failing to have two NHL goaltenders on your roster can result in invalid lineups, forfeited matchups, and a front office job offer from the Flyers.


  37. CBrady12 says:

    NHL on the fly

  38. The M says:

    That was well worth the read.  Canadiens fans are completely ignorant when it comes to goaltending, and as a result another potential star will be ruined.

    I’m so tired of this Halak/Price Debate.  Price could be a good goalie but he will not here.  He might’ve somewhere else where he wasn’t mocked for every mistake.

    The real problems with this franchise are poor drafting of first rounders (kostitsyn, Fischer, Chipchura), trading for Scott Gomez and his albatross contract, and the management refusing to sign/trade/draft/acquire players with size and grit.

  39. danedmunds says:

    my ris says LNH sur le vif at 8:30. anyone know what that means?


    i should really learn french and you’d think i would have watching every game for years in french

  40. CBrady12 says:

    Going to the game tonight…getting the pipes warmed up already…is it boo or boourns? 

  41. yathehabsrule says:

    Well worth the read. from Chris Boyle

    “Perfection is the only thing that will stop the irrational hatred. If
    Price can come to terms with never being able to satisfy the impossible
    expectation of perfection placed on him, then he will be fine. Halak has
    been deified regardless of future success with the Blues, it is a ghost
    that can only be vanquished by starting a long playoff march of his



    Ya! The Habs Rule! now on Twitter!

  42. Fant-HAB-ulous says:

    “TGTGFJ” I love it!

  43. sidhu says:

    Boone, we’re having a hard enough time spelling 51’s name, now you give us TGTGF?? j/k

    I agree, Schultz and Avtsin would have been great to see, especially given the buzz they generated from the scrimmages.

    If Alex Bald doesn’t play well, maybe PG will call Stan Bowman about Cristo-wall Huet!

  44. Chuck says:

    I can safely predict that Lars Eller will score more goals this season than will Jaro Halak. Thus, we win that trade hands-down.  :)

  45. RiverviewCanadien says:

    One way to put a positive spin on it…

  46. SeriousFan09 says:

    Auld and Mayer are in nets tonight, or as you might know them “the inadequate backup dude” and “the guy who conspired with PG, JM and Carey to send Desjardins out of town so he could take his job”

    Those may not be their official nicknames.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  47. Mark C says:

    “the guy who conspired with PG, JM and Carey to send Desjardins out of town so he could take his job”

    Haha, that might have been the most amusing and ridiculous conspiracy theory of the summer. It was my favorite anyway.

  48. rwolowid says:

    HABFAN in leafland

    We Have been hearing up here is that it is closet leaf fans at the habs games doing the booing of Price. certainly if you are a true  fan you would not boo your own.Why drive the guy out when he looks to be our best option.

  49. TheDagger says:

    Boone; Eller could break all scoring records, solve world hunger, cure every known disease to man, fix the world’s economy, bring back Seinfeld, destroy Justin Beiber, and some folks will still be bitching about trading Halak.

  50. Bob_Sacamano says:

    What´s tough about trying to get a despicable lying owner out?

  51. Rugger says:

    He will also give up less goals than Jaro this year – double win.

  52. TheDagger says:

    He will also be a part of a playoff team with more wins this year.

  53. Rugger says:

    Boone, the over/under on Auld is not that simple.  Mumbling will also start if he gives up less than 3, just different murmurs, so really the only point at which there will not be murmurs is if he gives up exactly 3 goals.

  54. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    I am listening to CKAC radio and constanly pressing F5 to see if Boone added something haha!

    You MUST help us out Mike! :)

  55. quentin_stuckley says:

    is shultz playing?  cjad reported (i think) that he was excited to be playing tonight.  truth or falsehood?

    Uh oh, first Carey, now Alex Bald… Say, what’s Theodore doing these days… maybe he’d be open to a try out :)

  74. Keith says:

    No replay sucks.

  75. Shiloh says:

    Is tomorrow’s game on RDS?

  76. Keith says:

    Commercial break UURRRRGGG??!

  77. sidhu says:

    Nice — Cody Bass is no slouch… good for him for giving Schultzy a chance to prove himself…

    45 still reminds me of Gilbert Dionne

  78. andrewberkshire says:

    No, 3 games in a row aren’t on RDS.

  79. JIMVINNY says:

    Not on RDS.  “LNH sur le vif” on RIS again.

  80. quentin_stuckley says:

    anybody know what dionne the younger is up to these days?


  81. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    This blows – we want a Habs tv.

  82. Keith says:

    Kinda hard to watch a game with these guys because THEY DON’T SHOW YOU ANYTHING!!!

    Eller with a great pass to the open side…

  96. Keith says:

    Eller made a nice pass to Gomer.

    They should sell Soobie Snacks at the Bell Centre this season.

  98. sidhu says:

    How does Max Power look so far?

  99. JIMVINNY says:

    Nice pass by AK, good effort by Patches to get a shot off.  Second game in a row where we are completely dominating in every area except for the score.

  100. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    wow – so many commercials…

  101. JIMVINNY says:

    You’re picking Darche over Pouliot?  Not in any universe.

  102. SeriousFan09 says:

    Pacioretty sounds like he’s having a good game, good.

    Headshot on MaxPac! Ottawa dickheads

    Ryan White sticks up for his teammate – atta boy!

  107. Propwash says:

    Adthe has no online feeds is there anywhere else that has the game online?


    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  108. quentin_stuckley says:

    does pacioretty have a bulls-eye painted on him or what?!

  109. JIMVINNY says:

    Gryba tried to throw an elbow at Patches there.  Good for White for sticking up for him.

  110. Keith says:

    Ryan White is da man! Sticking up for his teammates! Guy tried to take Max Pac’s head off!

  111. JIMVINNY says:

    Eller just effed that Sen up in the corner.

  112. jimbo82 says:

    what channel is this game on???

    go habs go!

  113. Keith says:

    On Rogers Digital cable it’s channel 607.

  114. Keith says:

    I like this lineup tonight! They have a bit of an edge about them.

    Where are people watching this????????? STREAM ANYWHERES?


    My spinorama shootout goal with Cammy

  116. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    I am listening to the radio. HAH!

  117. quentin_stuckley says:

    i’m only listening on cjad.  mouffit (sp?) said patches almost took a head shot.  have no idea how bad it looked.

  118. Hockey Socks says:

    Come on Boone! Do you have to call him wee DD every time? He’s a hockey player!

  119. habsfansince91 says:

    who exactly is he talking about when he says “wee DD”?

  120. Harditya_CareyPrice says:


  121. JIMVINNY says:

    PK gets a great scoring chance, then blows a tire to give one up in his own end.

  122. Keith says:

    Man I thought PK had one for sure! Great period!

  123. sidhu says:

    Boone, did White win the fight?

  124. Captain aHab says:

    I like what I’m seeing so far…………..

  125. Kaptain K says:

    What stream is this on??? Can anyone send the link?

    Captain Gionta

  126. quentin_stuckley says:

    good period, or so it sounds.  man, i wish i could see this one.  eller, when, when will i see you play?!?!  no streams are working for me.  is o’byrne playing?!  haven’t heard his name too much (though in his defense, the puck hasn’t been around auld too much).  ak46, too, heard his name once or twice, maybe one shot?  maybe?  gomez and gionta seem to be continuing where they left off.  all in all, i’m satisfied.  even with auld g.a.a.  zing!!

  127. Rudy says:

    Yeah, yeah, rub it in for those of us who can only hear it :)

  128. JF says:

    O’Byrne is playing.  AK46 delivered a good check and made a sweet pass to MaxPac, sending him in alone.

  129. scrowe21 says:

    So since this is only being showed on RIS….are we atleast gunna get to see some highlights on espn or rds?

  132. habs4ever2894 says:

    Yeah probably….

  133. Chuck Chuck Goose says:

    the Als game is on CJAD now, will they switch back to Habs/Sens when the 2nd starts?

    RIS is pissing and moaning about Price’s “Chill out” comment.

  135. Keith says:

    CJAD is covering the football game. Busy night in sports, but Habs pre-season hockey is more important!

    Both of ’em are playmakers and very creative.

    Can u send me the link to listen to it please?

  138. thebonscott says:

    they should have played carey and pk the same niight, the PK!  PK! would have taken all the pressure off price and he could just play

  139. habs4ever2894 says:

    It’s also the skating that is very similar 

  140. Propwash says:

    I managed to take over the t.v to watch the game, sorry I have no link

    LOL I had to shut it off…if I wanted to watch a pair of guys talking and not understand a word, I can walk down to gas station. Only difference is I wont get to see that minute of the second period they showed.

  187. Bill says:

    Sounds Like Subban is having a great night. Can’t see Schultz making the team now, but he’s showing the boss something the team is lacking.

    If Price can have a good year the team could surprise!

  194. JIMVINNY says:

    Beautiful passing by the kids.  LOL at RIS, though.  “How can you cut him?”, speaking about Desharnais.

  195. showey47 says:

    nice goal from some great passing.

    too funny!

  199. JD_ says:

    Nice tic-tac-toe.

    I’m presumin’ there’s some operatin’ license-related reason that RIS isn’t showin’ the game in its entirety. Whatever the case, I think I’ll have had more than a season’s worth of Normand Flynn after tonight.

    Is Mayer Hamilton-bound or is he way down in the depth charts?

    Desjardins was more or less moved so Mayer could move up from the ECHL to the AHL this season.

    For those of you envying us with RIS, don’t worry. It’s like a poorly done High School production. Who would think we’d rather watch the color and play-by-play guys rather than the actual game? The most frustrating part is not knowing when there going to cut away and when the games coming back on. Its only slightly better than watching the radio.

    I don’t get why it matters that he’s playing Sunday, he’s already played a preseason game. He was a -1 with 2 PIM on Thursday against St. Louis.

  251. larisalapointe says:

    Thanks man!! Keep us posted for tomorrow’s game.

  252. WarHero says:

    I live in the suburbs of NYC. John Tortorella made an appearance at my sons’ summer camp to give a talk to the kids. One of my little guys went up to him and said my Dad wants me to thank you personally. Torts asked him what for? He told Torts, for putting freakin’ Olli Jokinen out there in that shootout against the Flyers. My Dad said that if you didn’t do that, the Habs would have gone to the Finals!!!

  259. Geoff Molson says:

    Thank you :) I try :)


    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

  263. Hockey Socks says:

    Eller is very impressive. Not saying he’s the next Foppa, but he plays a similar style to Peter Forsberg. Mayer is a quality goalie too. If he can wrestle away the starting job in the AHL from Curtis Sanford, he could be a backup in the NHL one day. I like his aggressiveness.

  264. SeriousFan09 says:

    If Eller is half of Foppa, we’ll come out the winners in that trade. Canadiens didn’t move Desjardins because he was threatening Price, they needed to make room for a younger goalie with a higher upside in Mayer.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  265. habs4ever2894 says:

    He is more like a Tanguay. Good vision,accurate shot and very similar skating(very shifty).

  268. Hockey Socks says:

    Just to start some controversy: Robert Mayer – Shades of Halak LOL

  269. habs fan from stonyplain says:

    fans like you make me sick one freaking preseason game and your thinking mayer is ready to take over when is it going to end when carey is run out of town then what auld is going to lead us to the promise land. Is everyone not satisfied until carey is run out of town, unless he plays like dryden or plante everyone boo’s. Jaro is going to be another steve penny.

  270. ooder says:

    the half without the injuries i hope


    88 is the new 23

  271. zozotheclown says:

    Mayer is fast for a big guy, nice to see.

  272. SeriousFan09 says:

    If AK delivers like this all season, might he finally fill out to the form of so many of his fellow 2003 draftees? Should’ve dumped Sergei last season if this what AK will deliver up distraction-free.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  273. Yeats says:

    Poor Price, he can’t even catch a break in preseason. What if they decided to start him tonight?

    Fans that boo or give standing ovations at preseason games need an alternative outlet. The Impact’s entry into MLS can not happen quickly enough.

  274. Xtrahabsfan says:

    So there you have it ….The Fans of Les Canadiens CHEERING LOUDLY AT GAMES END because the boys played good and didn’t give up EASY GOALS AT THE BEGINING OF THE GAME! That’s all they want …a Real goaltender and a good effort! GREAT FANS expect great effort! GO HABS GO!

  275. Habstilidie says:

    Great piece by Bruce Arthur, fantastic read!

  276. SeriousFan09 says:

    Subban will probably take more chances than we will like this year, but with Andrei Markov to mentor him in the art of defence, he’ll learn when to hold back and defend.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  277. Yeats says:

    Could you load the buses full of those fans and send them down to West Point, NY on Sunday morning at 7:00am? I could really use the boost that can be provided by those who go mental over a pickup game!

  278. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Fun game to watch.

  279. Yeats says:

    All you need to do is find the “Dallas Smith” to pair with him and all will be well.

  280. Yeats says:

    Even last night’s Leaf game was liking giving water to a man in the desert.

  281. RiverviewCanadien says:

    You gotta love that hockey is back on.

  282. Exit716 says:

    I believe the success of Uncle George’s brilliant marketing campaign during his tenure as owner has created a perfect storm of unrealistic expectations mixed with marketing hype.

    It didn’t help that Price was being unfairly compared to Dryden and Roy before he even started one game in the NHL.

    I think fans and the marketing department really need to heed Dryden’s brilliant words at the 100th anniversary game, that it’s time for this team to create it’s own legacy. Fans need to understand that the good old days aren’t coming back.


  283. Chuck says:

    The arena that they played in last night is a great old building. Sure beats that arena of sterility that they call the ACC.

  284. Yeats says:

    I was fortunate enough to play at some customer outings in both MLG and the ACC. The former was the hottest rink I have ever skated in — I’m sure I dropped at least seven pounds in 90 minutes there — but it had so much more character than the latter. (Also, the post game brews were the best I have ever had!) There was nothing but beers on the line, but I look back fondly at getting a hatty at MLG wearing my white #10 Habs jersey.

  285. Chuck says:

    Sweet! That must’ve been grand. Hab jersey’s celebrating goals on MLG ice… nothing better.

  286. Yeats says:

    Absolutely, I could not agree with you more. JT had an excellent piece on her blog today. The bottom line is that even if he turns out to be the talent Gainey drafted, why would he stay in MTL after he is unshackled? Even if he were to win two Cups in a row, who wants to have his nads busted like this? (My nightmare is that somehow he ends up on the Leafs and backstops them to a Cup.) 

  287. Propwash says:

    Oh Christ, if that ever happened…………armageddon man, armageddon.


    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  288. Yeats says:

    Watching that twine bulge on the first one was great! They asked us to rate ourselves beforehand based on our skills. As a guy who grew up in NYC and pretty much gave up competitive hockey after high school, I rated myself a “C,” thinking that these guys from TO would smoke me. Nothing could have been farther from the truth. I think that they were a tad concerned during the pregame meal that I knew so much about the ’72 series and the New Year’s Eve game. The kicker were the two knuckleheads on the opposing team that I snuck up behind, tapped my stick on the ice and politely asked for and received a drop pass. I had so much time on the first breakaway that I could have gotten a date, ordered cocktails, seen a movie and still scored. The second I went down on the kicker and decided to try a breakaway wrap-around. To this day, Toronto is my favorite city to play hockey!!!

  289. Yeats says:

    Unless I misread it, that was essentially the gist of her post.

  290. RiverviewCanadien says:

    That was a good read

  291. Chuck says:

    Adam, observer, Shiloh, and the rest of that bunch would never hear the end of it.  :)

  292. RiverviewCanadien says:

    And if Price sh_ts the bed you will never hear the end of it from them

  293. G-Man says:

    Maybe if he didn’t pull that Patrick Roy shrug when losing a playoff game people would be more on his side. Maybe if he stopped glaring at his D and stopped the puck more often. Maybe if he battled more instead of relying on that shrunken on your knees goalie technique.

    CP ain’t that great. He is okay. It’s not about the hype; it’s about delivering the goods. First chance in the NHL playoff Halak got, the Habs went further than they’d been since ’93. Maybe if Halak had stunk out the joint, people wouldn’t think that the wrong goalie was traded away.

    Who knows? Price could turn it around. My opinion says what we’ve been seeing with him is what you get. 1 good game. 2 not so good. 1 good  game, 2….


  294. Shiloh says:

    Well said – but the Price-a-holics will not stand for reason.

  295. Yeats says:

    Again, I agree with you. Personally, I think the weaknesses exposed in Halak’s game by Peter Laviolette (PL) during the Flyers series made him expendable. PL showed that he was not the savior that many, myself included, thought he was. [When we were matched up against the Flyers, I knew we were done. Not because of their players, but because of PL. That dude knows hockey and knows how to cop a Cup, end of story.]

  296. SeriousFan09 says:

    The ill-mannered drunks booing Price for being the goalie in a playoff series that could not have been won deserved getting that shine on from Price. Prove how completely ignorant you are and classless by booing the US National Anthem and a goalie who could not have saved that series, no goalie could have. Using the 09 playoffs against Price just shows dislike of a goalie for foolish reasons while he was showing some emotion against drunken fools who poison the Bell Centre and the reputation of Montreal with their behaviour.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  297. Chuck says:

    Hey… Price has to deliver, or the Habs move on to someone who will. There’s no disputing that. And if it comes to that, then may the changes be made, because first and foremost I want this team to win. I’m still putting my money on Price being in nets when that happens, though. He’s already proven that he can do it in the NHL, so I wouldn’t bet against him doing it again.

  298. habs fan from stonyplain says:

    that is bang on if he is not playing like dryden then they boo, I have said this many times Jaro is this generations Steve Penny, I hope the drunks don’t run Carey out of town.

  299. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Price has to deliver, or the Habs move on to someone who will. There’s no disputing that. And if it comes to that, then may the changes be made, because first and foremost I want this team to win. I’m still putting my money on Price being in nets when that happens, though

    Well it’s pretty easy to put your money on Price over Auld or Sanford…anyone would make THAT call Capt. Obvious…

  300. Chuck says:

    My point was that I’m confident that we’ll be winning with Price in goal, not that Auld or Sanford would (or wouldn’t) be the long-term solution if Price didn’t work out. 

  301. SeriousFan09 says:

    Tanguay didn’t have a physical edge in his game though, if he’s a new Tanguay, it’s Tanguay with tougness.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  302. Hockey Socks says:

    Agreed. Eller can get dirty and physical. Forsberg was such a powerful player. He wouldn’t shy away from contact.

  303. Yeats says:

    I mentioned it sarcastically at breakfast that morning and one of them took it to heart. Half the time I don’t think my twins listen to a single word I say. The questioner used his extra ice cream money to buy a Rangers’ media guide during Tort’s visit.
