This week's Challenge... I wanna see photos of "THE PERIPHERIALS".

These are the tag alongs, the family members that get dragged to every event, that cheer for their team and get involved. They don't have to be 'family' but those 'characters' that are part of the 'scene' (Jason: hint, hint, wink, wink, nod nod...):biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

Don't you hate it when a groundhog gets a hold of some silly string?

Adrian,

I love this photo - it's right up there with Glenn's photo of the fans at Wrigley Field.

However, given the context of the challenge, if this guy wanted to go to a game with me, he'd have to drag me along - I don't associate with Habs fans!! :biggrin:

I think the ultimate tag-along commitment comes from youth sports coaches and volunteers... so here's my entry:

Dont want to seem to interfere but wasnt that Adrians 2nd picture in his post? Rules stated as posted by you are "The first picture posted in your post will be your entry. You can post more than one picture, but only one can be submitted for the challenge."

I know its only for fun but just pointing it out and as I didnt enter, i cant be seen to be upset by the result. Great shot though Kiz

Good point, I looked so quick at such a few number of pics that I really did not take that into account. Sorry. I'll let it stand this week, good luck Adrian!

Congrats, Adrian. I love the photo, but personally, I would have eliminated it just because of the Hab jersery. :smile:

Actually, when you look at it, Habs fans don't sway and they'll fight to the death to defend their beloved team...even if they don't speak English!! :smile:

Congrats, Adrian. On to the next challenge!

Lol. Thanks guys. I was going to enter that one as my main one -- but wasn't sure, because it was a Pro game. Thought this challenge would have went on to this Sunday. Ah well. :)

Time to figure something out!
