Was anyone watching the Philadelphia Flyers vs. the Montreal Canadians tonight?

The goalie for the Canadians had two pictures of Garth on one side of his goalie mask. I couldn't find a pic online, but my husband said, hey is that Garth. I wasn't watching, so he rewound it so I could see it. And low and behold, it was definitely Garth. The goalie was Carey Price #31.

From what I found out online searching for a pic, it says this is a new mask and that George Straight is on the other side. I can only find a pic of he other side, and it sure does look like GS. http://d.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/sp/getty/9e/fullj.3ffcf1a6f745a6e09beeb452441c589a/3ffcf1a6f745a6e09beeb452441c589a-getty-76073806pm013_canadiens_sens.jpg

Not a close up, but here's a pic from the game tonight. Not sure if you can tell, but since I saw it close up, I could tell it was GB.

Link to a slightly bigger pic, but still not a close up. http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/photo?slug=f1b294f649c2124468c68fd81b00a2c2-getty-76074051bb012_montreal_cana&prov=getty

Well.. being a Flyers fan I wish Carey had let in a goal or two but since he has Garth on his helmet.. it's only one game :)

Susan,

Thanks for finding a close up... I was on google trying and didn't have any luck other than the pics I posted.

Maggie I agree... I think the Flyers got robbed of that goal that would of tied up the game.

It looks more like Hank Willimas Jr. oposite of the Garth side.

Well the way the Flyers have been playing.. Garth himself could be in net and they aren't going to score :)

Maggie - you are so right. My husband is at the game tonight, so hoepfully they'll play good.

JoAnn, I'd have to find the site again, but it said GS was his favorite singer, so that's why he's on there. So I'm not sure. But at least he's got sense to have GB on there! :-)

I'm trying to get together enough money to play goalie next year at Belmont (you wouldn't believe how much hockey gear costs if you're not familiar with it, by far more expensive than most other common sports)... anyways, if I get the money to play goalie I'm probably going to put a cross on the back of my helmet somehow and some sort of Garth-related thing. Maybe a silhouette or the g logo, not sure yet... hm... any ideas?

It has to be something I can make easily, I'm not much of an artist.

A little tip for anybody... using clear mailing tape to make stickers works SO well that it's unbelievable. Print something out, cut out the white space and throw mailing tape over it. I've done it to things before and people always respond with a "How the heck did you make it so you can't see the edges of that sticker!?" I like to tell them "special stickers designed by NASA", haha.

Any suggestions would be really appreciated though.

Hi Lucaswynne... I'm not the most creative person in the world, but I definitely like the idea of the circle g. What about some musical notes around it?

You'd probabaly be surprised some of what NASA uses as stickers. ;)

Carey Price has good taste in music.

I actually met him at a Bon Jovi concert in Montreal in the summer of 2006. He was with Kyle Chipchura.

He says Montreal is a lot different than Anahim Lake.
“You go strolling with cowboy boots on and everybody looks at you funny.”

One day after he got home from Montreal he found a package in the mail from Tennessee.
“I was thinking to myself, did I order something from ebay off the internet. I didn’t recall ordering anything from Tennessee. I opened it up and it was a Stetson box. Inside was a signed Stetson from Garth Brooks, and a note saying: ‘Carey thanks for keeping the faith, pal. Garth Brooks.’ That was pretty cool.”

It's amazing how Garth always finds a way to show his appreciation to his fans.
