By now you have probably heard something about this and if you haven't, get ready to hear more. Too much even!
As the story goes, a Habs fan named Robert, sitting near Blackhawks backup Marty Turco during the game in Montreal last night had been egging him on with bets that the Canadiens would win. After Mike Cammalleri made it a 1-0 game, the fan handed Turco a fiver with the words "Habs Rule" on it. According to the conversation linked here from the Team 990, the bet doubled, then tripled, and when the money was returned to the fan after the Subban goal, the goalie scrawled his name onto the bill, making it read "Turco Rules."
In the photo's above, you can see Turco accept the bet on the right. On the left is the returned bill.
It'll be interesting to see if the NHL disciplinarians crackdown on Turco for this little bet.
Maybe there will be a twitter comment or an e-mail leak from Colin Campbell's office saying "Bah! I had five on the Hawks too! And I'd have won if it hadn't been for the Jonathan Toews' call on that little fake artist P.K. Subban!"
No word yet on whether the Montreal Police are investigating, but expect Air Canada to revoke Turco's FF miles.
