Social Media Fan of the Day - October 2011

Age: 22
Twitter Handle: @mbouf               

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

As a Habs fan born in Montreal but now living near Toronto I keep in touch with the Canadiens’ fan base on Twitter, where I am constantly discussing the Habs with my followers. Because I have a diploma in broadcast journalism and a post graduate diploma in sports journalism I decided to create a blog where I write about the Habs and women's hockey. (

I have Habs memoribilia all over my room, a mini t-shirt hanging in the back window of my car and I wear my Canadiens hat and jersey around town on game days, even if I get booed by those Maple Leafs fans.

I'm constantly rubbing my love for the Habs in the faces of people in Ontario - Habs key chain, background on my phone, photos on Facebook, tweets, t-shirts, jerseys, baseball caps, touques etc... There is no doubt, I am a Habs fan for life and I'm going to share it with the world.
