Happy 100th Anniversary!

The place to be this weekend has to be Montreal! Forget Sundance forget vacations on some tropical beach somewhere.

Kicking off the weekend CBC presents

Montreal Canadiens: 100 Years, 100 Stars on CBC Television

The Montreal Canadiens franchise turns 100 this year!
George Stroumboulopoulos hosts this CBC Television special. Featuring well known personalities and hockey legends recounting the one hundred year history of The Montreal Canadiens, the culture that has surrounded the team throughout the eras and the passion for the Habs, resonating with fans across Canada and around the world.

The special can be seen on CBC this Friday January 23 at 9pm EST

This Saturday Jan 24th 7pm is The NHL SuperSkills and The All-Star Game will be on Sunday Jan 25th starting 6pm. There will be all kinds of events surrounding it to help celebrate the 100th anniversary in our historic hockey city. I don't think you could keep George away from Montreal this weekend to enjoy the celebrations. He will be there in the thick of things!

I thought the Montreal Canadiens special was extremely well done!

I could not help but chuckle watching the segments change and a time span was shown with the number of Montreal's Stanley Cup wins noted below. If the special was on the Toronto Maple Leafs, that graphic would be so grim...

1968-2009 0 Stanley Cup wins
