Social Media Fan of the Day - December 2011

Age: 29
Twitter Handle: @maohispessac   
City: Bordeaux (France)

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

I stay connected with anything to do with the CH the best I can all the way from France. It’s not the easiest thing to watch a game live because of the time difference, but I’ll still wake up in the middle of the night to get in as many matches as I can. I use the team’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to help stay up to date. I actually got the chance to see a game live at the Bell Centre back in 1997 and I remember it like it was yesterday. We lost to the Penguins despite a great breakaway goal by Recchi. The crowd got up to cheer for the goal like they were a unified entity – I still have goosebumps from the experience.
