Uh, yeah. This jersey was shown to the public yesterday as one of the six vintage jerseys the Habs will wear on occasion through December 4th, 2009, to celebrate the 100th anniversary. Apparently this was a jersey the Habs wore back in the day. I don't know what day, I don't know what the A stands for, and I'm way too fucking lazy to research it. Or care. I'm sure Robert from Eyes on the Prize can enlighten us, he knows his history. My knowledge of history goes back only to 1978, when I discovered drugs.
The jersey was part of the larger event yesterday when the Habs unveiled the entire slate of activities for the 100th Anniversary. It includes assorted cash grabs and events to trumpet how great we are. December 5th, 2009 can't get here fast enough.
