I'm sure the airwaves were buzzing with Italians wanting Italian players on the team.

They're not even really Italian, they are second or third generation Italians lol.

man oh man, I would love to observe what happens when you tell some of my 2nd or 3rd generation italian friends they're not "really italians". lol. That would be a lot of fun.

For what it's worth, I'm Italian too.

It was a good idea, IMO for that market. No need to dance around what they were attempting to do there.

Yeah, it's not like Les Habitants haven't been doing it for years. And not always with French-speaking players. Cammalleri is there to get the Italian community engaged (at least for the months when calcio is not on). Sergio Momesso was not a very good player, but he was very, very popular.

Disagree about that. Cammalleri is their because he scores goals, not because of his last name. Plus, he is also Jewish, so you could say he's attracting the Jewish community, and he could sell some smoked meat.

Main point, in Habs land, you don't need to attract new fans, they already have plenty.

Smoked meat is pretty universal. It's lox that needs a boost.

if we had drafted kadri, we most likely would have had some shawarma shops open up at sbp. and the lebanese crowd certainly would have come in droves to sbp so higher attendance too.

sadly, that would have been the only good reason to draft Kadri. He sucks Smile

My parents were visiting on the weekend, so I got their family meal, which is supposed to feed *four*. There's six of us, with my parents, that was 8 people (4 adults, two teenaged boys, two girls). We ate and ate, then some of us (I won't name names) had some of the leftovers as a late snack, and the next day there was still some left. And right now I still have a medium-sized container with the rice and potatoes, and a small one with humus and garlic sauce. That meal cost $34.95. Get it quick before these guys put themselves out of business.

quite the bang for your buck. Their large shawarmas are always stuffed with ingredients. Good stuff and cheaper than other shawarma places Drool
