Bestselling author Roch Carrier narrates a mortifying boyhood experience in this animated adaptation of his beloved story, "The Hockey Sweater."
In the 1940s, in the rural village of Saint Justine, Quebec, listening to the hockey game on the radio was a Saturday night tradition... and so was rooting for the Montreal Canadiens. All the boys worshipped the star player, Maurice "Rocket" Richard, and proudly wore the number 9 emblazoned on their sweaters.

Yeah yeah yeah...

If you're trying to tug at my nostalgic heart strings FUHGETABOUTIT.

I TOLD you, I'm a HUGE fan of the Habs from THOSE days, always will be. That was when the Habs were a HOCKEY team. Hell, I even read that very book to my son IN FRENCH...

I'm NOT a fan of the current team.

Sorry, Charlie.

What a fickle fickle fairweather man...

The Canadiens are not a love-me, love-me-not type of team. It's a love for life. (or a dislike) You can't be a fan of the "old" Canadiens and not be a fan of the current incarnation, because it's the same damned team! The Canadiens are timeless. They are not some new found gayromping team of Senators (boy oh boy I can't wait to see the city have its collective cry when they lose yet again in the second round this year!), they are legends, no matter who is playing for them. They're like the Cubs, or the Red Sox, or the Yankees for that matter of baseball. You either love them or you don't.

By what you are saying, you are forfeiting all your former alligience to les habitants. And you know what that makes you, back in the 70s and 80s? A Leafs fan!

Alright, even I have had enough of this idiocy. Mike, go back to rooting for your pornography and masterbating to your sens.

I never thought I'd say this, but from this day forward I officially hate the Sens more than the Leafs...it was pretty close to begin with. The reason is that Sens fans suck. Leafs fans AT LEAST do stick by their team even when they lose & stick it up. If Sens lose in round 1 (which COULD happen if they play Pittsburgh, The whole city will be screaming for changes and say that Alffie is the problem.

What is with the gay porn on this site of late?!

I'm still at the office reading Deril rip into mikey for his traitorous ways, and into me for my baseball-esque playoff proposal... scroll down a bit more and WHAMO! There's some guy getting midevial on some other guy's heiny!

And I never thought I could get such negative sentiment going against the sens... I was just trying to annoy mikey, and then along comes deril and sides with me! This is indeed a disturbing universe!
