Does the world need another hockey blog? Another Habs blog? Probably not, but I can’t seem to keep my mouth shut. The blog is called Lady Loves Hockey, because that is exactly what I am, a lady who loves hockey. While my female counter-parts are numerous, there aren’t that many blogging.
Do I have a unique female perspective on hockey? Probably not – but it’s a good differentiator marketing-wise, and I’m capitalizing on it
All that to say, it goes without saying I am a die-hard Habs fan, and have been since I was a wee little girl. My first hockey memory is of me at six years old crying at the top of the stairs because my Dad is taking my Mom to a game and not me. He took me soon after to watch the Nordiques play the Montreal Canadiens. I remember two things from that game:
1- Our seats were in the mid-reds behind the visiting goalie
2- I mistakenly asked my Dad what would happen if I cheered for the Nordiques – he said I would get thrown out of the Forum. Needless to say, I never questioned my allegiance since that day
My favorite player growing up was Patrick Roy. I was a goalie and I wanted to be like him so badly! I actually flew into a pre-teen rage when Manon Rheaume got to practice with him and the Habs!
My current favorites are Tomas Plekanec and PK Subban, with an honorable mention to Max Pacioretty.
In real life I am the marketing and communications director for a company based here in Montreal.
