I'm both a proud NFLDER and a proud HABS fan, but man, Bob Cole is so anti Montreal, it just drives me insane! Gary Galley is not much better with his anti Subban for Norris Trophy comments.....a trophy he never had a chance of winning!

Hey folks, First time poster, although honestly I've been reading the content and following your posts whenever I get the chance. Long time Habs fan from NL now living and working in NS. Try to get to Montreal at least once a year to see the Habs play. I want to wish Ken a Happy Birthday and share a story. I don't have his personal contact information anymore. I do know he's a 'Class Act' in every sense of the word. After he wrote his first book, and had his TV series on CBC, we were looking for a guest speaker for a Recreation Awards Banquet(in the early 90's) that we were holding in St. Anthony, NL, a community in northern NL. We came up with the idea of inviting Ken, probably accepting the fact that he would never come. We got a hold of his CBC publicist who was handling his affairs at the time, told the person why we were looking for him, and the person said ok they would contact him and let him know. If he was interested someone would get back to us. Not long afterwards, my phone rang, and it was Ken. First, I was in shock that he would return my call and secondly I was surprised that he was interested. He told me he wasn't interested in money he was just interested in having an experience. So we put together an itinerary and sure enough he agreed to come. We took him on sightseeing tours and fishing trips, and even to stag party in a fishing stage.(atho he's no big drinker!) He attended receptions, spoke at the banquet, and signed autographs for every one in St. Anthony. It was a very memorable experience for residents of a small Town in Northern NL. Several years later, I was President of a provincial parks and recreation body, and invited him back to speak at a provincial banquet and again he accepted. We provided him with more unique experiences. Although, when I picked him up off the plane, I asked him if he was hungary. He said "I'm starved!" I asked him what he wanted to eat expecting him to say possibly seafood, and he yelped out "I would like to have a good Dairy Queen Cheeseburger with Fries!" Unexpected and funny, and he didn't leave a fry on his plate. Ken spoke for about 50 minutes at the banquet and you could hear a pin drop. He took questions for about a hour, and he stayed in the banquet room until about 1:30am, signing every piece of Habs paraphernalia that was placed in front of him. Ken, you're a class act! Happy 65th. Barry
