Social Media Fan of the Day - January 2012

Age: 19
Twitter Handle: @k_laaaaa                                

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

I almost feel bad for the non-Montrealers that I have on Facebook and that follow me on Twitter. I am constantly posting and sharing Habs news and videos. I have not lived in Montreal since 2009, so I use social media as my outlet to share my thoughts on the Habs. I go to school in NYC, so I attend every Canadiens game I can here; I went to MSG and to Nassau Coliseum. At Nassau, the staff working there allowed my friends and I to stand by the tunnel where the players come out, and we got to see the players up close. I certainly did not hide my excitement with this. We waited for the team bus in the cold both times. I look forward to each game, and listen or watch while doing schoolwork. I've made new friends because of my obsession!! I also wear Canadiens gear everywhere, to show my pride! I have a Price poster up on my wall in my dorm room. I also converted my roommate from New Jersey into a Habs fan!
