I used to work for BC Ferries and every so often a tractor-trailer driver, on his way on or off the ferry, would slow down and hand me his copy of Canadiens magazine.
This trucker and I kind of bonded back then, not only because we were both Habs fans, but also because for 20 years while living in Ottawa and Calgary, I too had driven semis for a living.
From one of the magazines my friend had handed me, certain Habs, including Carey Price, Max Pacioretty, and Tomas Plekanec, who were with the team in 2011 of course, were asked who (girlfriends and wives excluded) would they want as their arm candy on a red carpet kind of evening.
It’s also kind of fun to see the other names.
So who would they want as their dates?
Jaroslav Spacek said Britney Spears.
Mike Cammalleri said either Eva Mendes or Shakira.
Max Pacioretty, Tom Pyatt, Carey Price, and PK Subban said Megan Fox.
Yannick Weber said Charlize Theron.
Tomas Plekanec said Jennifer Aniston.
David Desharnais said Halle Berry.
And Benoit Pouliot, Hal Gill, Alexandre Picard, and Alex Auld said Mom.
When I look at these, I’m on the same page with Weber (Charlize Theron), and Desharnais (Halle Berry). Although I like the mom choice too.
Below- my choices – Charlize and Halle. When I own the team they’ll be invited to my private box so I can teach them about bodychecking.
