Tell us where you’re from, Habs fans

My thanks to wd40 who provided the following link to a poll that aims to find out where members or visitors of Habs Inside/Out are from.

I know he posted it elsewhere on the site, but I figured I would give it some prime time exposure. 

So, log on and tell us where you are from by going to hiopolls.blogspot.com and  voting.

    If your country/region is not listed in the poll (i.e. you select “Other”) .. apologies!, maybe you can let your fellow HI/O buddies know exactly where you’re from here.

    Surprised at the response… very cool!

    memorable hockey moment: watching the game when patrick roy played his last game allowing 9 goals eventually losing 11-1. at least he got a standing O in his last game
    things that piss me off about my town: too many leafs and sens fans

    Born in Ville LaSalle, currently residing between galaxies.

    Memorable hockey moment: At the game Beliveau scored his 500th

    My first trip (aged 6) to the Forum for my first ever game when, upon seeing the ice for the first time through the tunnel in the whites “WOW, IT’S IN COLOUR!”

    Pleasure to knock around here at HIO.

    I’m from Panama, where the recipe for ice was lost long ago.

    Unfortunately, the poll would have me be an ‘Other’ since Latin America doesnt have enough hockey fans to merit its own region.
    oh well…

    I was born in Montreal and moved to Vancouver where I live now. My claim to fame was delivering the Gazette to Jean Beliveau and Butch Bouchard.

    I was last in Montreal at the forum in October 1992 and saw an exhibition game between the Habs and Pittsburg when Mario was playing – that was the last year they won the cup. Anyone want me to come back?????????

    Port Credit, Ontario

    Still living here (I’m 18) along with my dad who’s a pretty committedfan himself who’s from England, but lived in Sarnia when he came to Canada.

    Cool story with how my dad became a fan.

    He doesn’t remember the year, but the Habs were playing Detroit in the 60s and the Habs were losing. He had just flipped his tv in his room to the game and it was something like the end of two periods and my dad, who usually roots for underdog teams, rooted for the Canadiens. Irony here though is that the Canadiens were a few years away from beicomnig the most dominating team of all time.

    To this day, he still roots for them.

    Born and raised in Harrowsmith, Ontario, small town outside Kingston, birthplace of Captain Kirk Muller.
    Played all star hockey w/ Kirk for a few years. Great Kirk story, we played in a hockey tournament in Mississauga when we were 8 years old. We made it to the finals and lost to Richmond Hill 4-3. Kirk was basically our team. Our team scored 43 goals in that tournament, Kirk scored all but one of the goals.
    Currently work w/ Kirk’s sister in law in Kingston.
    Habs fan since my early years in the 70’s. My dad and 2 brothers all cheer for different teams in other sports but hockey is Habs all the way.

  38. BJ says:

    Born in Edmundston, New Brunswick. Lived in Montreal and area from the late 40’s with a lot of travel in between. Now living in northern Germany since 1989. A hockey photographer by trade. Watching and working a lot of game at the old Forum from the 1950’s through the time I came to Europe. I’ve photographed a lot of hockey games in Europe in over one hundred rinks throughout the hockey countries here. I actually started as a reprint boy for Pat Landry at the Montreal Gazette in 1968 with a bunch of photographers that are now legend in Montreal; Len Sideway (his son Dave continues the legacy as a photographer at the Gazette), Aussie Whiting, Ted Church etc. Its been a life filled with hockey and still is. I have my own agency here in Europe and we supply hockey revues and magazines around the world. Our archives go back to 1881. Fun stuff. And I read the Gazette online and visit this site on a daily basis and enjoy peoples comments. I listen to some games on CKAC and watch highlights on http://www.rds.ca. By the way easy on Koivu (he’s given his all to the Canadiens and even if he’s slowed down a touch he brings a lot to the team). I saw him grow up as a player when he played with TPS Turku and photographed him back in the early 90’s. Hope this isn’t too long winded.

    I began to follow the habs after I spent one year as an exchange student in Montreal. The best year of my life, for sure…

  40. Jonnyboy says:

    I think its interesting to see that there are a lot of people that visit the site and don’t post to often.

    From: Hamilton and I last month worked my way into a position (now it might be concessions, but regradless) at the Bulldogs games.

  41. Björn says:

    @Jonnyboy: I read the stories and comments here everyday but I also don´t post very often.

    I am from Düsseldorf, Germany and I really have to go to bed right now…

  42. Björn says:

    One more thing: Despite living in Germany, I haven´t missed more than five Habs games this season. I have watched about 40 on TV and streams and listened to another about 15 on CJAD. The Habs cost me a lot of sleep but I like it. Good night !

    Lived in Ste-Anne de Bellevue and Ile Perrot, Que for 30 years, Ch’Town PEI for 5 years and Ottawa for 20…. I am still in Ottawa. Have always been a Habs fan and will be for the rest of my life.

  45. Matt_in_TO says:

    Born and raised in Montreal. Family moved to Toronto when I was 17 and have been here ever since. Not always easy being a Habs fan in “the centre of the universe” but it’s been great this year! It’s always pretty cool when you see a fellow fan in TO.

  46. carmine007 says:

    Albany, New York.
    I really enjoy listening to the games via the web. CJAD800. Gives me a home town feeling about the games. If anybody has the Center Ice package, all of the games feel like they are away games. Even though I don’t speak very much French. Id rather watch all the games on RDS. With all the Montreal comercials you feel right at home!!

    It’s NEVER over til it’s OVER!

    Mine also Scotty–she is from Magog–eastern townships,–very fine ladies, 5 star.

  48. 24 Cups says:

    Born and raised in Toronto and have lived in the greater GTA all my life. I have also been a Habs fan all my life. When I was a boy, hockey cards came in two sets – one was the Habs/Leafs set and the other was the four American teams. The games started on television at 9pm on Saturday nights and were always joined in progress somewhere during the second period. When you played road hockey you were always #9. Until Guy came along. I also had an affinity for the unsung heroes – Provost, Roberts, Harper, and Risebrough. Watched Patrick Roy win the 1993 Stanley Cup with the greatest display of goaltending in the history of the NHL playoffs. Retired early from the workforce at the age of 52 and I am now waiting patiently for my beloved Habs to win Cup number 25.

  53. Hoegarden says:

    I’m from the Eastern Townships (St-Georges), home of the current CRS Express formerly known as the Garaga in the NAHL. Lived in Victoria B.C. for one year, Halifax for 11 where I had the double pleasure of following the Habs and the Vees. 1976 and 1977 were the best years ever for a Habs fan down East where both the Habs and Vees won the Stanley Cup and Calder Cup. I don’t think this has ever been duplicated in the NHL/AHL.
    In Ottawa since early 80’s. Lots of former Nordiques fans turned into Sens across the river and I’ve seen some Laffs fans wandering the streets at night. Tons of hockey here with both the QJMHL and OHL and that other team in Kanata.

    Became a HABSFAN when my mom bought a HABS jersey on sale– she had no clue what it was — it was a good deal– i was 10-11 at the time — 35 years later my wife and i take annual trips up to catch at least 2.3 games a year always opening nite and usually a leafs habs game but not this year — this year its bob gaineys jersey nite

  63. Habs_008 says:

    I will also be there for Gainey nite, i will be driving from T.O. I cant wait. It will be a night to remember. I have been a hab fan from the 80’s when Roy was showing the world how to play goal. He was something else. I wish I saw him live before he moved on to Colorado. Cant wait for Saturday! GO HABS GO!

    Man, those were the days. The “little viking” was one of my favorites. And can you believe Schneider is still playing??

  71. The Teacher says:

    Born and raised in Park-Extension, Montreal.

    I remember Mats Naslund, Shayne Corson, Pete Mahovlich, and Mathieu Schneider being Canadiens representatives at the hockey tournament I volunteered for for many years.

    Also had the privilege of having the team serve dinner to me. These players are much wider than we think in person. Mark Recchi for one is built like a mack-truck.

  72. Guy21 says:

    I’m from Saint John,N.B. and have been a Habs fan since the Rocket played so I’m not a new fan….I never thought I would be posting on the computer concerning the Habs etc. Its a great site and we are fortunate to have it..

    I hope there are no injuries tonight when we play part two in Phil….they have a few goons that could cause serious injury…

    GO HABS GO

  73. Kevin Mio says:

    Guys and ladies, go to the link and vote there, please. And for the sake of the poll, let’s say Quebec and Ontario are ‘Central’ Canada.

    Many thanks.

    It means that they’re always talking about how they have a great chance at the beginning of every year.

  75. Shiloh says:

    Every October Leaf Nation is convinced they have the team to win the Stanley Cup – and they always let you know it.

  76. eurekabru says:

    Could you elaborate on the October part. I just don’t get it.

    Thank you.

  77. Shiloh says:

    Once I had a young co-worker Leaf fan give me some grief over a game the Habs had lost. We were in the staff room of a high school. I just looked at him and replied, “1967”.
    “What’s that mean?”, he asked.
    “Last time your guys won a cup.”
    And then one of the female teachers looked up from her marking and said,
    “That’s not true – they win it every October!”

    I’ve never heard a better put-down for a fan of the Loafs.

  78. Erik says:

    I’m from Oshawa Ontario near Toronto. booo…. but hey I get to go the games when the HABS beat the maple leafs at the acc.

    I have always loved the HABS! This site really is great I remember when the gazette used to have a site called THEHABS.com.

    Hey Mike….Do you think we will get some polls on HIO?

  86. Blitzen says:

    There’s actually a better system than that. There’s one where you can pin your exact location on a map. Makes it even more fun.

  87. Shobud says:

    From Lachine.. Lived here 72 years and been a fan since I knew about hockey..Played hockey since I can remember.. Put the pads on and went out to play with some kids three years ago.. Its still as much fun now as it was forty years ago

  88. wd40 says:

    having lived my entire life in Montreal, i can’t imagine what it must be like to be a Habs fan in “Leafs Nation”. I, personally, don’t seem get along well with Leafs fans. About 2 years ago I had a verbal spat with a Laffs fan who stopped into a local watering hole (the Old Dublin) and started rambling on about how fitting it was that the Hockey Hall of Fame was in Toronto, etc. It went downhill from there… :)

  89. Shiloh says:

    Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario. (It was two cities when I was born – Port Arthur and Fort William). I now work in Toronto and have a condo right in the middle of Leaf Nation – Domi lives in my building. I get home to Thunder Bay every two weeks.

    My son, nephew and I are coming to Montreal on March 13 to see the Habs-Sens – my first visit to Montreal. Been a fan since the early 60’s.

  90. Keith says:

    You have my deepest sympathy for that toad Domi living in your building.

  91. N.B.habs fan says:

    Hi I am from Gordonsville,N.B.I have been a habs fan for 50 years and loving it .Meet alot of players,like The Richards,etc.Was a member of the Fredericton Canadiens booster club.

  92. Shiloh says:

    I know you may be surprised to hear it, but he is just about the nicest young man you could meet. He always makes sure he talks to the front desk guys, the cleaning staff and is not stuck up at all. I have spoken with him and he is very considerate and approachable. When I told him that I was a Habs fan, he asked if I was from Montreal. When I told him Thunder Bay he was surprised and asked whether there was a lot of Habs fans up there. Just before Christmas he told me that he really liked our team this year. So – what can I say?

  103. Peter Young says:

    That story I read in an English boys’ Christmas annual was about a fictional figure named “Goal-getter Charlie.” Only the English would come up with that! Soon after I found out who the real goal-getter was, Maurice Richard.

    My first full season following the Canadiens, 1953-54, Maurice, already 32 years old and said by many pundits to be past it, led the league in goals scored after Gordie Howe had led for three straight seasons. Then the following season, 1954-55, he led the league in goals again, this time tied with Bernie Geoffrion, although it is almost certain he would have been sole leader had he not been suspended for the three final regular season games. And the next season, 1955-56, the Rocket finished tied for second in goals scored, behind only the young Jean Beliveau who had the most productive goal-scoring season of his NHL career.

    By the following season,1953-54, Maurice had become the oldest player in the league with the retirement of Canadiens defenceman Butch Bouchard, and yet managed to again finish tied for second in goals scored. But for injury, I believe he would have led the league in scoring again in 1957-58; he was ahead, if I recall correctly, when a sliced Achilles tendon forced him to miss more than half the season. Instead, in perhaps sport’s greatest comeback, he had to settle, at age 36, for a league-leading 11 goals in 10 playoff games. That was only one off the record of 12 playoff goals in a season, jointly held by Maurice himself, 12 in 9 games in 1942-43, his first playoff year, and Beliveau, 12 in 10 games in 1955-56. The Rocket almost single-handedly destroyed the Red Wings and Gordie Howe, still only 29 and seven years younger than Maurice, in the semi-finals in four straight games.

    Sorry for the digression. But any excuse to recollect the Rocket’s magnificent achievements is too tempting to resist.

  104. Peter Young says:

    I was born and spent the first nine and a half years of my life in northern Cheshire in England (the Manchester area). Football (soccer) was my sport; I didn’t know of the Canadiens and had only read one story about ice hockey in an English boys’ Christmas book. Then my family emigrated to Canada in 1953 and hockey joined football as a sport passion.

    I immediately became a Canadiens fan. They had style and passion, they were dashing and exciting, and, of course, they had Maurice Richard, the embodiment of the will to win, the most determined and committed athlete I’ve ever seen. Oh, the Rocket, how I loved him. The day his retirement was announced, a couple of days after my 17th birthday, was, outside the deaths of family members and friends, the saddest of my life.

    Mostly I’ve followed the team from afar, from near Keswick on Lake Simcoe and Toronto in Ontario, from Fresno and Santa Barbara in California, from Cambridge in Massachusetts and, since 1968, from Los Angeles in California. It’s usually been lonely, but the advent of the Internet changed that somewhat.

    I have been around as a fan for 18 of the Canadiens Stanley Cup victories (and alive for 20). I still want more, of course, and I feel the next one is just round the corner, thanks to the still-learning but fast becoming great Gainey-Carbonneau management team. It will be the sweetest one because of how long we’ve had to wait for it.

    I was born and raised Montreal . Out of the womb in the year we last won the cup, I, unfortunately, used to hate hockey and every other sport ot there. I was a girly girl: always dressed in pink and listened to the spice girls and all..Only until 2 or 3 years ago , I became a mega fan and I don’t really regret it because we weren’t that good in say, 2002. any ways, proud to be and forever will be a habs fan! anyways, pleasure reading some of the posts below and a pleasant surprise to see how many fans are in Europe, Asia, Australia and everywhere else!

    I was born in Montreal but grew up and still live out in “the boonies”. lol

    I can’t remember the last time they won the cup, 93, I was only 6 or 7 years old and did not care about the NHL, I cared about floor hockey and playing hockey out in the driveway where my brothers would make me be goalie. I agreed until I got a slapshot on my thigh, ouch. They also won the cup in 86 in my birth year, but depending on what month it was I probably was in my mothers belly still lol.
