On location, training camp 2008.......Moey style

As I have stated many times before, I'm your less than typical hockey fan.  I don't obsess over the Habs, own any Habs jerseys and it would take a herd of wild horses to drag me to the Bell Center to watch a game.  I've even been known to give away tickets that I've received.  I don't attend Tweet-ups or Summits, my favorite venue is my sofa in the family room.

However, a couple of years ago, the Habs held their training camp 15 minutes from my house and I figured I could manage that, even though it meant getting up early on a Saturday morning to get a decent parking spot. The personal sacrifices I make for this team are mind blowing.  I had forgotten about a couple of pics that I had managed to snap outside and just came across them this week.  I didn't take any indoors because it was too cold in the rink and in typical Moey fashion I was wearing heels with no socks.  I watched the on ice training exercises through the glass, with a coffee in hand. 








The blond guy looks awfully familiar, but I can't for the life of me remember who it is.

Could you not have blurred out the traitor's face? Maybe GG11 could photoshop a good defenseman's head over that one.

Soperman,

Sorry about that. I remember how much I was looking forward to that hockey season. Talk about lunchbag letdown, it went from bad to worse.

Hello Moey:

Don't worry about it, I have natural genetic defenses that blur out hab traitors (carefully defining a traitor as someone that works to get out of Montréal - Koivu and Kovalev are NOT traitors)at the eyeball level. It is something like a solar-powered welding helmet. :o)

The Pierrefonds one?

@31,

Absolutely! I wouldn't go any further to see them, except of course for my beloved Captain K, he was worth the 3000 miles. Well, that and visiting the nephews, shopping and fine dining. Oh, and free room and board :)

I dragged my brother to that. We took our bikes. I happened to stand next to Carbo for like 5 minutes and didn't realize it because...I'm apparently taller than him and couldn't see him...

Also I MISSED PRICE 'cause he was in the other rink (we were in rink 2 waiting 'cause rink 1 was packed) but got Kovy~!♥♥♥

Wish they would come back but now they got that comfy new place of their own so WE have to drive to the middle of nowhere.

@31,

I must have been in the same rink, I got Kovy & Koivu. I still love them and all that, but I ain't driving to Brossard to see them.
