This just happens to be…….
A metal hockey player/wine holder given to me last week when I met my friend Rosalyn Roy and her mom and brother at McLean’s Pub in downtown Montreal.
I’ve known Roz for several years, although we’d never met until now. She writes a great blog called Tyger by the Tail in which she details her life in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, and her love/hate relationship with the Montreal Canadiens. On Twitter she’s @Tygerlylly.
Roz and her mom and brother did their annual drive to Montreal to take in a game, I finally met them all, and although they were tired from the long haul from the coast, they were warm and friendly and Roz bought me a beer!
She also did a radio spot at some point in their hectic weekend which began with taking in a Habs practice at Brossard.
How great it is to finally meet someone you’ve only known through good old blog pages. Hopefully they’ll come back again next year.
