CH CH CH CH Changes......
So lets see, what have we got so far, 3 new forwards, four new defensemen, have I missed anyone? It feels strange right now to be a fan of a team that I have no emotional attachment to. My trusty lawn mower and hedge trimmer extraordinaire Rick was here yesterday afternoon. I always have my radio tuned in to Melnick in the afternoon out by the pool. He commented that he listens to the Team 990 every day too. Naturally I asked him if he was a Habs fan, and sure enough that led to a half hour gabfest about our beloved if non-recognizable Habs. He's very optimistic about the future and I'm starting to get excited too. I'm anxious for the season to start because I have to go about the all important business of picking new favorites and forming emotional attachments and then down the line getting my heart ripped out when they end up getting traded or leave for another team. Well, I've gotta run, I'm in need of some serious retail therapy, it works every time!
I'm starting to make progress, I have a pair of jean shorts that I bought in 1997. I love them, they're so comfy but worn out with a few holes (like our old Habs). I was having a hard time parting with them. I bought a new pair this afternoon. Baby steps......
Make that four forwards and three defensemen. I'm losing track of who's who.
