Surviving is the correct word. The playoffs season is hard on everyone in Montreal: lots of emotions and lots of dreams followed, more often than not in recent history, by a crushing disappointment.

And then there is the usual post-victory partying on St-Catherine Street, under the heavy supervision of our own municipal police force (I was itching to say farce, but you have to give it to them, for once they didn't beat anyone for no reason last Wednesday).

Yes, the Stanley Cup playoffs are a tough time for Montrealers of all ages and genders: there is a game every two days, with no other breaks or interruptions. Be at in front of your friends brand new HDTV or in front of the projected image at any and all bars in town, there is usually more than a few bottle of beer involved, accompanied by slices of pizza, nachos or the Eurodog (go to Benelux and ask for it, you'll see what it is).

Maybe it is the fact that we have no other professional sports team left in Montreal that makes it all so tough on us. Maybe if we still had the Expos, some of the steam would be left off in Baseball games. Maybe if the Impact was actually in a serious soccer league, we would pay more attention to it.

But for now, the Canadiens is all we've got, and considering how rarely they win, we'll take each victory that comes our way with a happy grin and a big celebration.

And why not? Why not dream? It's more than time to bring Montreal back on the map of professional sports. It's just hard to work all these games around my schedule. They're probably costing some people their relationships. I just hope that they won't cost me my job.

PS: Thanks to from whom we "borrowed" the picture here. For the full schedule of the Montreal Canadiens during the playoffs, go to their official site.
