Last year around this time, Diane in Boston decided to switch from being a Bruins fan to a Habs fan, and we celebrated.
But when the Canadiens played in Boston recently, Diane and her sister Nancy were there, and later Nancy emailed me with the disturbing news that Diane had worn her Bruins’ jersey to the game and actually applauded when Boston scored.
Now Diane, after learning that Nancy has ratted her out, has come clean and admits she likes both teams but just can’t give up on her home team, and she still has crushes on Bobby Orr and Cam Neely.
This is such a shocking turn of events. Heck, I’d even promised Diane an upper-management position when I buy the team. But if I go ahead and do this now, others will think we have a spy in our midsts. Everything’s been turned upside down, all because she had to wear her Bruins jersey.
