Social Media Fan of the Day - October 2011

Age: 39
Twitter Handle: @zemocas                

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

I simply cross the Atlantic Ocean every year (with the sole purpose) to support the BEST Hockey Team on the planet - THE MONTREAL CANADIENS!

I'm a Portuguese citizen (born, raised, and living here in Portugal since 1972).
My passion for the Habs started back in 1991, the year of my first visit as a tourist to Canada (Montreal). I'll never forget my first game at the historic "Forum"!
That was the day that I officially discarded football (soccer) as my favorite sport.

In a few weeks I'll be making the trip again, and you can bet that I'll be inside Centre Bell on October 13th, to support OUR Team ;)

Nobody amongst my friends or family understands this, but I'm not in search of understanding or comprehension. What I feel/live/absorb every time I've been to the Centre Bell to assist a "Season Opener" is enough for me to help live the rest of the year (in Portugal) saying OUT LOUD every day, "I am not afraid to die, for I've seen things you people wouldn't believe"(*)

I’ll also share with you some pictures of myself supporting "Les Canadiens”.

I'll end this post quoting the words of Mr. Sebastien Dhavernas words the movie Les Canadiens. 

“Like an army on ice, we march south every winter; we return in the spring the — CONQUERORS!"
