Raps coming to Montreal

DanH, you're in luck.

Hey, Montreal, guess what?

The Raptors are coming.

For a pre-season game.

Don’t have the exact date, believe I heard Oct. 7, and there is nothing on tickets right now but they’ll definitely be in town.

Which is more than I can say for the last time they tried to get there.

It was way back in the day, maybe the second pre-season, and they tried to get a game down there. Couldn’t sell a ticket to save their souls and abandoned the idea before it got embarrassing.

I have no idea where basketball fits in the sporting landscape in the city – I know about the Habs being even more Leaf-like than the Leafs are here – so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of exhibition game crowd they’ll get in the Forum, or the Bell Centre or the Molson Centre or whatever it is they call that shrine these days.
