    does anybody here buy this story? The guy insults me and then pretends that I'm some housemate of his! It's people like you that give SW forums a bad name. I'm surprised nobody has banned you.

    No, but I am banning you. We'll start at 48hrs and work from there.

    The Senate has a long reach. Should've watched your words.

    Well, I sorta figured you know eachother personally, but I don't think many of the people on this board really care either way if you know eachother or not. This is a pretty pointless argument now, "Im his roomate", "no I'm not" "are so", "are not", "are so" etc...

    Its not that fun to read, and probably not that fun to post, lets stick to more mature subjects :].

    Alright, glad that got sorted. Thanks for the defense Kepow, for what it was worth. I can't believe I didn't catch him sooner.

    Well, I guess there's not much to talk about in this forum, so I guess it can sort of be a Montreal social thread for those who aren't that proficient in French. Or just too lazy to translate.

    So I'm from Pointe Claire. I got into Star Wars when I was young, but at first only renting the movies. I didn't realize it was such a big fan thing until I met this guy Tops in my community. He and his brother were huge fans - original toys, models, the works, and I sort of got into from there. I didn't go after the toys as much, but loved reading up on the making of the films, especially the artwork. Then I got into the EU for a while. Now I just collect things, usually books, or lego, whenever it looks interesting.

    I guess I made my mark as a "fan" when TPM came out. For a whole year at my school I was the TPM source. Relayed news, etc... posted the countdown on blackboards. Even went to regional finals for a speech I did Star Wars on. Unfortunately the finals were at a rotary club where the judges were all elderly women - I don't think they I understood my passion.

    Since then I've just been chilling out, waiting for Episode II.

    Any of you have any good Star Wars stories? Anything, let's make this thead interesting.

    Wow, a Montreal and Quebec forum and no Habs thread?

    For those of you who haven't noticed, the Habs are in the playoffs for the first time in 3(?) years. Their facing "number 1" Boston. They've already won the first game.

    Stupid Boston should realize that thug tactics don't work against teams who aren't afraid of you. They should also learn to show a little respect for Koivu. I didn't expect him to be cut slack, but they went out of their way to mess him up (see: knocking him into bench and giving him a facejob).

    So, with that said...

    GO HABS GO

    What they did to Koivu is almost expected in the NHL today for high class players come the playoffs, especially with teams like Boston.

    I thought we played a really good game though, out checking them and forchecking better than them dispite the size disadvantage. I think we can beat them in six.

    5-3 Montreal, take a 2-1 series lead.

    Wow, what a comeback. Koivu... what can you say about the guy. Amazing. I don't know, I've never been huge on the Habs before (I'm a Penguins fan) but you can just feel something around them this year. These comebacks remind of when they won all those overtime games back in... *gasp* ... 93!

    Gilmour was the best pick-up they've had in years. Changed the whole team around. And I figured he was over the hill.

    My buddy's got tickets for game 4 and I'm stuck in Kingston doing exams! Oh well.

    Montreal, 2-1 victory, 3-2 series lead!

    Theodore was outstanding. What makes him so great is that unlike Hasek, for example, he plays outstanding without looking outstanding... he doesn't have to flop around, he just makes every save look casual. Must be very demoralizing for the opposition.

    ...but Montreal will have to play better to finish it off than they did in game five.


    PS I'm coming home! Just finished exams. Goodbye Kingston, hello Montreal!

    Finally Theo steals a game :D.
    I do agree we need to play better, but if Theo keeps playing like this, our chances just went up A LOT. And guess what, if we make it to the next round we play Carolina, the weakest team in the playoffs (even if they beat NJ).

    MONTREAL WINS!

    JOE THORTON TAKES PENALTY LEADING TO WINNING GOAL! WHAT AN IDIOT!

    I hope Toronto wins so that we can beat em in the conference final.

    "Ooo, ooo, I'm Canadian, English Canadian, I'm an anglophone in Québec..."

    No, not really, just a fan of Bowser and Blue. Actually just found this English thread in your forum and thought I'd pop in... if you guys are actually speaking my language some of the time I'll have to drop by every once in a while. So, hello from Toronto *waves to the 3 or 4 people in the group he's actually met* ... maybe during the next school year I'll make it up to Montréal to meet some more of you... since during those 8 months I'm in Ottawa, making it a far shorter drive.

    Bonjour Montréal!

    (Edit, for the time being, Go Habs! -- Not sure what team I'll cheer for once they're facing Toronto)

    Welcome to Montreal! :D

    Ok, so the Canadians are leading the series 2-1 from what I understand.

    What are the results for the Senators-Leafs series?

    I want a canadian team in the finals!!! I'd prefer the Montreal's canadians (of course!) but would settle for another team if the worse should happen and they are eliminated (which will not happen!).



    And probably a very silly question but it's been bugging me for some time...
    'Go Habs go': Where does Habs come from or what does it mean(guess it's the Canadians but is it an abbreviation or what)? [face_blush]

    "Habitants"

    I guess it means "home team". That's what the little H in the C stands for too.

    I'm hoping for a Habs-Leafs conference final. Why? Because the leafs would be easier to beat and the intensity would make for an unbelievable series.

    Yeah, I'm also hoping for a Montréal - Toronto series, just for the excitement... and the Canadian content. :)

    That was a sad when we lost, but hopefully it'll teach the team they cant sit back once they get a lead. I think they'll come out strong in Carolina tomorrow, and hopefully finnish the same way.

    Wow. That was depressing. I think it was funny how my friends and I kept keeping hope:

    Me: (After 3-0) If they're within two by the end of the period, they've got a shot.
    Buddy: (After 5-1) If they're within three at the end of the second period, they've got a shot.
    Buddy2: (8-2, 10 minutes left) If they score three goals in the next five minutes, they've got a shot.

    It just kept getting worse and worse.

    So who's seeing episode 2?

    During the game, my mom was the same!
    ''20 minutes left, if they want to win, they can!''
    Yeah, right...
    At least, they put Theo back to finish the game.

    Toronto-Carolina... maybe I'll watch, I don't know. I hope Toronto wins anyway.


    Edit: Yeah, I'll watch episode 2 at the Spheretech at midnight. :D
