Social Media of the Day - September 2011

Age: 24
Twitter Handle: @SirGaryThomas

How do you show your passion for the Canadiens through social media?

I make my passion for the Habs heard pretty loud through social media, because it's just about the only thing I talk about. My twitter account is used 90% of the time for hockey related activity and that involves obviously (and mostly) les Canadiens!

My Facebook profile banner is dedicated to the Canadiens, and every time a game is played or news breaks I always post it to my wall

I’ve also posted one of my favorite new things on Facebook: having a Montreal Canadiens XBOX 360. Yeah, that's right, I got myself a skin that looks like a Canadiens jersey and now that’s what’s on my XBOX 360.

On Youtube, I’ve made two Canadiens videos – one for the NHL and one for former Canadien Alex Kovalev as well.

I think I can say Canadiens and Social Media go VERY WELL together in my life.

I’m also a proud and active member on where I spend 100% of my time on the Montreal Canadiens board, talking about les Canadiens. Gary320 is my username there.
