Why yes, I am a certified Chris Higgins expert…
Well, I would be, if there were such a thing. I think we all fell in love with Higgy a little the day he was drafted by his childhood favourite team. How could we not? His father, also a longtime Canadiens fan, cried tears of joy and also Chris has beautiful eyes. But while the rest of you monkeys slowly (or abruptly) fell out of love with him, I remained a faithful stalker fan. Watching his career hover precariously over the toilet for the past year, or a little more, has not been fun, but I’m hoping a fresh start in Florida will do Higgy some good. I’m choosing to ignore that he is now living in a city with an even bigger and more hedonistic party scene than Montreal.
When Frank from The Rat Trick asked if I would give him my thoughts on Chris, I was obviously happy to oblige. I tried to be as objective as I possibly could, but as you all probably know, it’s really hard to be when you have the kind of irrational love for a player as I do for Chris. Still, I think that Panthers fans who aren’t familiar with my future husband will get a decent idea of what to hope for from our conversation. Frank posted our discussion in two parts on The Rat Trick. If you’re at all still interested in my Higgy, here they are:
Huge huge thanks to Frank for giving me an opportunity to talk about Higgy. I miss Chris tons.
