the later the better it seems... this place have lights??

I also MAY be in a league game that day but it looks unlikely

CMON NJDEVS HOCKEY!!!!!!!


Good question, I've never been there. I was kind of counting on OurMarty'sBetter on this one.

I'm down for later, just said I get out of work at 3...I'm good anytime after that, if we can't start til 6, that's fine.

Otherwise, another day.

We just got back to the hotel. The Canadians advised us not to do Montreal and Ottawa in one day that the traffic from Mont. to Ott. would be hellacious. We got to Montreal at around 10 am. It was reaaaally easing getting through the border.

First we drove around... went up the mountain behind the city to get a good view and take some pictures.

Next, we came down the mountain and drove around. Got a little lost. Found the Bell Centre. The plaza in front of the arena is really cool. We went in the Habs store. It was weird seeing all the Gomez and Gionta jerseys around...

After the Bell Centre we went on the highway and got to Marty and Souray's Pizza place. The people there were really nice. It was a lot smaller than I expected. The food was AMAZING. The bill came out to 56 which was around 44 US dollars.

After that we drove back to the city and parked in Old Montreal and walked around. We went and took a self-guided tour of Notre Dame. That place is gorgeous. Then we walked around some more around the Old Montreal section. Went in and out of a bunch of shops, got a snack at Tim Hortons (nothing special about it).

After that we went back downtown and walked around in and out of a few shops. Jamie wanted a Gionta t-shirt but they said they wouldn't be available til August. There were a LOT of Nordiques merch around the city oddly enough. I ended up getting another Nords t-shirt with a French saying. All and all, we were looking at apartment buildings saying we wanted to move in haha. That city is amazing and we are already beginning to plan our return!


Can't say I understand the hellacious Montreal to Ottawa traffic. Glad you enjoyed Montreal, but it was a shame you never got to Ottawa (I am guessing you never ended up going). Downtown Ottawa is absolutely beautiful in the summer.

And there certainly isn't anything special about Tim Hortons.

6 or a little later would be perfect for me, actually. I'd be able to go home grab some food maybe shower get my hockey stick (street hockey, not roller, right) and make the 20 or so minute drive. By the way, can one of you guys give me an address so I can Mapquest it?

As you were driving through the tornado, did your (or Scott Stevens') life flash before your eyes?

I've never actually been to this rink, so I have no idea other than a general idea as to where I think it is.

OK well I won't need a stick. Pads, though? I thought we were only gonna play street hockey and only goalieman would need pads (though I'm wearing my cup because of him). And I have no idea where any of these parks are, ha ha.

Okay, Boyton Park I know...well, I know how to find it anyway:

69 N Grand Ave, Port Reading, NJ

Interesting point about the cup. I didn't think of that. I don't own one. I'm staying the fvck away from Crasher if this does go through now. :ph34r:

Fords as in Fords Park on Rt 9 or Fords as in somewhere within the Fords section of Woodbridge?

I would be down for either, but I know Crasher doesn't care for the surface at Fords park.

I'm still terribly annoyed at Carteret for letting the West Carteret rink fall into such disrepair. Surface was awesome there when they built it.

No I know what you mean. After I dropped Jamie off it took me over an hour to get from Bayonne to Clark. 440 was shut down, power was out, downed power lines, no traffic lights, everything was flooded, storm was still in full swing. I was actually quite scared.

Fords has asfalt as the surface btw

Actually drove through Bayonne tonight and saw those downed power lines.... 440 was open when I went through but I saw the power out and street lights out.... Rt. 7 through Kearny was flooded as well.

Apparently 3 people were hit by lightning in Newark also.

Yeah, I know where you mean. Like I said, Crasher's not fond of the surface, but maybe we can talk him down here to relive his Fords Cup winning glory days or somethin'.

As for Carteret, the whole WOR/Medwick Park area along the Rahway River is condemned. There's a sign around what used to be a playground at WOR park explaining that they need to survey the land and get some kind of cleanup going. It's definitely not something that will be fixed anytime soon, sadly. And the rink's probably last on the list of stuff they're gonna want to get fixed once they can. It's really sad, they're somehow making Chrome livable and the parks they already had in West Carteret are literally falling apart. Something's ass-backwards here.
