Gainey the fashionista

Just a quick hit to relay something I heard Martin McGuire report a little earlier this afternoon on CKAC.

He says that Bob Gainey put his foot down today and informed the Canadiens marketing department that the team will not wear the "vintage" barbershop quartet uniforms they were scheduled to don for tonight's game against the Blackhawks. Instead, they will wear the more traditional vintage jersey with the "CAC" as the logo.

I never knew Gainey was one to meddle in the minutiae of his team to the extent of usurping the marketing department's choice of uniform, which was surely predicated on sales projections and other similarly drab business concerns.

It must be getting close to playoff time.

And I'm so glad they didn't wear those half-season jerseys. I think they're better forgotten - and the team didn't win anything in them either!
