Les Canadiens: We are the spirit of Quebec, you stupid goats!

Les Canadiens, Rick Salutin.

Dryden: “As perhaps the most visible and accessible symbol of Quebec, they allow people to pour out their feelings toward Quebec through this travelling surrogate, the Canadiens” (7).

The Players: “How can we be wrong about this? We are the spirit of Quebec, you stupid goats! We always have been! We’re you! And we’re telling you, you’re full of shit! Goddammit, take the wax out of your ears!” (169).
