Well, if I may say, that was pretty much a bust. I would estimate the crowd at between 200 and 300 people, not counting the 100 press members. Every now and then the organizer would grab his bullhorn, urge people to sign the petition, and unsuccessfully start a Go Habs Go chant. If you can't even get Habs fans to chant Go Habs Go, the energy level in your group is pretty low. To his credit, the organizer also was raising money for Japan. May have been a bit of a downer.
The pic above may even overstate how many people were there. Anyway, we've got some more pics for you. This first one is a better indication of the crowd I think:
I was obsessed with the guy in the Blues Hull jersey with his giant dog. I've got 10 pics of him. Why is he there? Why with that jersey? If you have a Blues jersey, at least get a Jaro one. Is he from St. Louis? Why would he have a giant dog with him if he traveled from so far? So many questions.
Winner, best sign.
Runner up. Though it is a tad confusing. Does he mean Fuckface Bettman is a Republican?
Winner, best costume. Wasn't even close. I want one of those.
TSN's John Lu works his Blackberry. We had a lovely chat actually. He seemed bored. He estimated the crowd at only about 100, which I thought was low. We agreed to disagree, then we went to Club Downtown where we banged twin Eastern European strippers in the VIP room. I think they were Bulgarian.
Well that about covers it. Fuck the NHL. Get well, PatCHes.
