Montreal Road Trip.....

... anyone going to Montreal? Anyone been? I'm going by myself... I live in the Evil Empire (Toronto) and there ain't many friends of mine who were game. But, I had to go to a game @ Molson Stadium, so I thought..."screw it! It's my mini-vacation"!

Can anyone answer these queries:

  • how are the Montrealers in regard to visiting fans? I'm gonna' be in proper retro Black and Gold!
  • how much are beers?
  • how many beers should I consume @ 6'1"... 225lbs?
  • should I ovate for Anthony if he breaks the TD pass record? Some of those are TC TD's!
  • is St. Hubert as good as Swiss Chalet?

-Thanks

I going in Oct.

....ummmmmmm..... Me going Thursday! Me no go October! You no answer question!
Lanna! Lanna! Zug! Zug!

Anyhoo,

I'll be posting photos from the game on PhotoBucket on Sunday... I'll link!

Can anyone answer these queries: (I’ll try)

1 - how are the Montrealers in regard to visiting fans? I’m gonna’ be in proper retro Black and Gold!
2 - how much are beers?
3 - how many beers should I consume @ 6’1"… 225lbs?
4 - should I ovate for Anthony if he breaks the TD pass record? Some of those are TC TD’s!
5 - is St. Hubert as good as Swiss Chalet?

  1. See my private message. LOL The short answer, pretty good by my experience of going at least once a year on average to see a Cat game at Molson.

  2. Mind is foggy having had too many there historically. LOL Not sure about this year, but I do think they will be in the range of a buck less than IWS by experience. P.S. Hope you like Export. LOL

  3. The more the merrier if AC is burying us. LMAO I’m Scottish in background and more vertically-challenged, but I can drink most folks sous la table in a pinch. :wink: Know your limit.

  4. Absolutely. Great players deserve recognition for achievements. Passing Ron Lancaster is one such milestone that you should stand and salute. Damon Allen’s mark will take much longer. LOL

  5. St. Hub is good – I’ve always prefered Swiss Chalet chicken, but that’s me. Bar-B-Barn is EXCELLENT IMHO, especially with friends.

If sushi is your thing, I highly recommend Kanda for its all-you-can-eat sushi – best bang for your buck.

Oski Tour Guide,

SUSHI?

WTF Russ?

I ain't doing sushi! No self-respecting TiCat fan can do Sushi, apres le match! But, thanks anyway! I'm diggin' the Bar-B-Barn idea!

And, as far as getting plastered? I'm bringing my bicyclette on Porter Airlines so I can finally cruise around Montreal for awhile on Friday. I gotta' see Stade Olympique et les Isles NotreDame et Ste. Helene! I'm a bit of an Expo '67 buff!

So, I'll have a few Exports but Je promise! Je ne suis pas "get plastered"! La bicyclette avec plus bieres equales..... NON! Comprends?

LMAO

Well, Rusty-san can do sushi, BIG TIME. :wink:

Bar-B-Barn has historically been a hit with visiting players around the league. Great chicken and ribs. Can't miss if you bring an appetite!

Oski Wee Wee,

Also: I highly recommend the guided tour of the Big O if you can take it. It is a MASSIVE facility and there are many elements that one simply doesn’t see a lot of today. The tower itself is a treat, especially if touring with kids. Great view of the river and the entire western part of the island.

Oski Wee Wee,

Yep!

Thanks O-O-O! I've never been in the Big Owe and have wanted to be since 1976!

I can still remember watching the opening ceremonies from St. Andrews, NB that day! Our neighbour invited us to watch on his colour TV. It was a Zenith and everybody's face was green!

It's a real monument to Canadian history, really. Whether or not it's a great sports venue.
