A co-worker who is a big New York Yankees fan once said, "I don't care if Saddam Hussein is our left fielder, if he hits .300 with 30 home runs."
His point clearly being, whoever and whatever it takes to win is all I care about.
The Yankees have 27 World Series titles. The NHL's Montreal Canadiens are the Yankees of their sport. Les Habitants have won 24 Stanley Cups. None since 1993. Winning is expected in Montreal. This drought is an eternity to their fans. There is nothing they wouldn't do to end it.
Or so we thought.
Because in the last few days apparently there is something that means more to the Montreal Canadiens fan than winning. It has been learned that everything takes a back seat to their head coach speaking French.
