Marc-Andre Bergeron was literally picked off the junk pile or possibly rescued from the middle of a frozen pond. What I love about this guy is his attitude or should I say lack of. He just looks so happy to be employed and he gives it his all. No airs or graces, or "I'm all that" and no sense of entitlement. I know people make fun of MAB's defensive lapses and his uncanny knack for tripping over his own feet, but I find it endearing. It brings back childhood memories of watching Bambi on an icy pond. And much like Bambi, it doesn't appear to phase him in the least, he just dusts himself off and gets on with it. Mind you, watching the dynamic duo of MAB and O'Byrne trying to clear the puck from behind our net is cause for alarm and a few giggles. I just cover my eyes and hope for the best, which is pretty much how I watch every Habs' game these days. And I love how he just keeps shooting, even if he misses the net by a country mile he lives by the old adage "if at first you don't succeed try try again." He's just a dose of pure clean fun and I'm loving it.
Interesting tidbit, MAB is BAM spelled backward :)
In my last post I promised a recap of our mini weekend getaway but due to unforeseen events we had to reschedule for mid January. Stay tuned, it's coming to a theatre near you.
