We lost in a 7-0 blowout to Boston, last night, of all teams. The head-hanging, the hair-pulling, the band-wagon jumping, the embarrassment, the shame…all of it by Habs fans. Imagine how the team is feeling?! Imagine how they’d feel if they saw the negativity by their own fans bombarding Twitter feeds and Facebook groups everywhere!
So my friend Mike posted to a Facebook group and I was just about ready to leave that group because more negativity is not what this 100-percent-forever-Habs-fan will abide right now.
But he has a point…and so I had to listen and decide whether I would stay in the group…
You can tell we’re totally screwed for the playoffs and won’t do anything… This season, think of all the blowouts we’ve suffered! We lost to the Sabres 8-2! We lost to the Rangers 10-5! Double digits! Not only that, we lose 6-2 to the Islanders and 8-3 to the Sabres AGAIN!!!??? There’s no way we’re doing anything in the playoffs, NO WAY!
(If these games don’t sound immediately familiar, these results are all from the 1992-93 NHL season in which the Canadiens completely sucked in the playoffs, right?)
So chill, people. If you want to come back to the fold after the next win, we’ll probably welcome you back – but know that your band-wagoneering days are numbered if you keep hopping on and off at warp speeds. One of these days, the bandwagon might just leave without you.
And then which team will you support?
