Beginning on September 1, 2011, we will announce one Social Media Fan of the Day everyday on Twitter via @canadiensMTL, the official Twitter account of the Montreal Canadiens. The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to any Habs Zone location and we’ll post his or her profile on canadiens.com. Oh, and don’t forget to tell your friends – it’s in your best interests!

Social Media Fan of the Day - November 2011
Daniel Bigras (November 5, 2011)

Age: 40
Twitter Handle: @tricolore                       

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


I’ve been an administrator of the Canadiens fan site Tricolore.ca that I’m also a founder of, since 2003. I’m very active on Twitter and also on Facebook. Our Tricolore.ca Facebook page has over 3000 fans and we have nearly 1500 followers on Twitter. We always try focus on the positive aspects of the team, as at Tricolore.ca we’re all tired of the negative stance more mainstream media always seems to take when discussing the team. Our social network tries to keep that same positive vibe that many others don’t have.
I have two big Canadiens tattoo that I’m very proud of, as you can see in the picture below.

I love the Habs and have always had fun arguing with friends of mine that are fans of other teams – as you can see in my other picture where I’m attacking my friend who’s a Flyers fan with my centennial brick!
