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


I am a die-hard Habs fan. Ask anyone that knows me, and they’ll tell you that I live and breath the Canadiens. My Facebook profile is plastered with pics of me in my Habs gear, some of which I purchase with my Habs reward credit card. I've worn my jersey to show my pride in the middle of the summer in North Carolina, no matter how hot it was. I wear it every Christmas morning. I studied journalism media in college and through that I had the chance to interview Jean Beliveau, Ken Dryden, and Rejan Houle. All such an amazing honor. With the future being social media I am training my new nephew in the ways by bringing him up a fan of the Habs, so in the future he can broadcast himself. The Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge runs through my veins so much so that even though I don't speak a word of French I sit at home watching RDS every game by myself with all my Habs gear My all time favorite Hab is Kirk Muller. After just about every game, trade, or move made by the Habs, I comment on it in my Facebook or Tweet about it. I have always been, and will always be a HABS FAN and I'm dang proud of it. Go Habs Go.
