Canadiens Honor Red

from the Montreal Gazette,
Red Fisher, the dean of hockey writers on this continent or any other, currently uses a Macintosh iBook G4 laptop computer, featuring wireless capability, a DVD drive and so much memory that it can recall when the Canadiens were a dynasty. Optional installation on its 14-inch display is a tastefully small photo of country singer Shania Twain, wearing a midriff-baring Canadiens jersey. This computer is slightly higher-tech, though much less beautiful, than what the Canadiens presented to Red in the Salon Jacques Beauchamp an hour before Saturday's Bell Centre game - an engraved, gold-plated Montblanc Solitaire pen - in honour of his 50 years (plus one) of covering the team. "I wouldn't have wanted to do anything else," he said of his career, deeply moved and clearly surprised by a ceremony that the dozens of Montreal media in attendance had known about for weeks.
