The Montreal Canadiens honor Gary Carter

Feb 20, 2012, 9:46 AM EDT

This is cool.  The Montreal Canadiens honored Gary Carter before last night’s game, complete with giant projections of old Carter cards on the ice and a great video with Carter highlights. Oh, and Youppi, back in his Expos jersey!

It starts in French, but goes English at the 50 second mark.  And warning: the tribute video they played, while great, is played over an Eagles song. I know that bothers some people because, you know, they’re the Eagles.

    It’s been a long day, and I hate the f’n Eagles!

    1. Leave The Eagles Alone!
    2. Who is the announcer, Maurice Chevalier?
    3. Nice tribute.

      Sounded more like Daniel Auteuil to me….but yeah, very nice. That big grin again.

      Horrible mutant mascot, though. Almost meerkat horrible, but not quite.

    That mascot (Youppi) was the Expos mascot and was adopted by the Habs (what the Canadiens are referred to, since the vast majority of you here don’t know sports) after the Expos bolted to D.C.

    What a classy move(hard for me to say as I am a black and gold fan) for a super classy man…

      Agreed. A Phillies fan who remembers the last weekend of the 1980 season quite well would like to ask, can we get baseball back to Montreal someday? With a real ballpark this time? And put the team in the hands of somebody who won’t hack it to death with an axe?

    Oh….the Eagles. Not the Philadelphia Eagles……I was expecting to hear “Fly Eagles Fly”….

    I miss baseball called in French. I miss Carter’s name said in a French-Canadian accent. I always kind of hoped the Expos would be resurrected and that Carter would come back to manage them.
