Yes, there was a piece on him in my local paper as well as Hockey Night In Canada on Saturday. It's a good story, especially when you consider that he's literally a rocket scientist(or something close to it).

If it's written by Michael Farber, by the way, the story is guaranteed to be a great one. He's one of my favourite hockey writers around.

I always look forward to reading SI on the weekends.

When I was in my early teens, I actually read SI, Sport Magazine, Inside Sports, Baseball Digest, Sporting News and Football Digest. (Along with playing sports, reading books and such. I just never did homework. )

The best pieces in SI are ones like I'm expecting the Juneau piece to be.....capturing a more human side of a current or former athlete. I am so tired of the steroid bullshit and dogfighting and arrests and videotaping opponents signals and on and on....so, it's good to read one of the myriad positive stories about athletes.

Farber is a good writer, agreed. Just went and checked, and, it is by Farber!

The Habs honoured him recently with his own portrait in the Bell Centre media lounge, alongside other longtime hockey journalists in Montreal.

Diemen - we share a similar allergy to crustaceans (if I'm reading you rite) - and I similarly make up for that with heavy doses of mollusks.

PS - I've been noticing a shift in the tone of this place...has Interference become overrun by wacko Canucks? Particularly us Frenchies?

Is there a figure in Habs lore, from a media standpoint, who is legendary, be it writer, PA announcer, broadcaster, etc? Considering their rich history, I'm sure there was/is, but, I'd like to know who it is.

^ Yes. Red Fisher. He's currently writing at the Montreal Gazette but made his debut in 1954 for the Montreal Star and then switched to the Gazette when the Star stopped its presses in 1979.

His first Canadiens game was the infamous Richard Riot game on St. Patrick's Day in 1955.

One great story that I heard about him is that one time after a game a few years ago he asked a player, I think it may have been Mark Recchi, for his comments and that player just gave him the standard sports clichés. He literally put down his notebook and walked away, saying that he'll only talk to him in the future if he stays away from clichés.




ETA: And Dick Irwin is another one. He retired some years ago, but was THE voice of my childhood. I would watch the game on TV with the volume on mute and listen to Irwin on the radio.

There is no team in sports like the Canadiens. From fans, legends, champioships, announcers, writers, a city in perpetual love/hate relationship with their team, to a country who has to love them even when they wish they didn't...the Canadiens will always be #1. Always.

Well said Gabriel. We'll just have to wait and see what Elfa and Drea think about that.

It's funny, BM. If there had been an Interference when I was in my teens, my avatar would have rivalled yours. We'd be fighting over who was the bigger fan heh. I spent most of my junior high to high school Saturday nights hunkered down in the basement, my wet stinky hockey gear strung out everywhere (incl one sopping wet Canadiens jersey, no. 44) watching HNIC in french, understanding most and not caring about what I didn't, just so I could see my beloved Habs play. On a b&w with rabbit ears, no less.

No. 44 for Stéphane Richer? I loved him as a kid, but my idol growing up was Patrick Roy. I had his #33 jersey, countless hockey cards, posters etc...I was very disappointed when he was traded, but moved on of course.
