Habs Fans Ecstatic With Return Of Hockey

from the Montreal Gazette,
My co-religionists will fast 24 hours to mark Yom Kippur. Devout Canadiens fans went 529 nights without real hockey. What were they atoning for? Bad labour relations? In the minutes before the Canadiens' entertaining home opener, a friend was saying his hockey-mad daughter gave up chocolate for the duration of the National Hockey League lockout. "And she stuck to it," he marvelled. "Wouldn't eat a candy bar after the tentative agreement was announced. She waited until the players ratified it. "I asked her why, if she felt so strongly, she didn't go on a complete hunger strike. She said: 'Gary Bettman would let me starve.'"
