Because so many of you clicked on the ads on the side of this site, plus me getting in quite a bit of overtime lately at work, I now have enough money, 400 million, to buy the Montreal Canadiens from George Gillett. This of course will include the Bell Centre, where I will be living, so on those cold, winter nights, I won’t have to go out of the house to take in a game.
I’ll be buying the team to fullfill a couple of dreams. I want to hire the right people to build a team and win the Stanley Cup next year. I want to be stick boy. And I want to be the guy who makes sure the players’ wives are comfortable while visiting the Kane Centre.
Until the sale is finalized, I won’t be announcing coaches and staff. But lets just say I’m pretty tight with Mike Babcock, Roberto Luongo, Scotty Bowman, Ken Dryden, Wayne Gretzky, Nik Lidstrom, and Vinny Lecavalier. And Alex Ovechkin owes me a couple of favours.
So just let me get all the neccessary paperwork done, and we’ll get on with it. But don’t tell anybody. I don’t want this to get out.
