The Annual French Canadian Invasion Begins

Just got this email from my friend Josh:

In faneuil hall again...just walked into 10 canadien fans one was also
wearing a yankees hat...fuckin' douches

Ah, it's that time of the year again! The Canadiens are playing in Boston for the first time this season, and man, do they swarm Boston. It's nearly impossible to get a ticket in Montreal, so they all come here, and invade our fair city.

The Garden is absolutely insane when they play here, though. It's a playoff game, every game. The Habs fans, for some reason, chant Ole Ole Ole (like the soccer chant) and the Bruins fans counter with the oh-so clever "You're gay, you're gay, you're gay" chant.

Anyway, I love classic outbursts like the email Josh just sent me, and he isn't even a hockey fan.

The best all time goes to Katelyn, though, on the eve of Game 3 of the playoffs vs. the Canadiens. She was driving along Memorial Drive in Cambridge and spotted a lone Carey Price jersey'd Canadien fan walking the streets. At a light, she rolled down her window, honked and yelled "Canadiens Suck!" then called me immediately after.

It was one of the more hilarious phone calls I've ever had. She is the best. Josh, you're like, #2.
