i am totally one to believe in superstition. that is why when i realized this i shit my pants. look at this pattern. 1976 montreal hosted the olympics and in the next calendar year of 1977 they won the stanley cup. then calgary hosted the olympics in 1988 and the next calendar year they won the stanley cup. so if the pattern holds true any canadian city that hosts the olympics will win the stanley cup the following year. crazy isn't it? the patterns been in front of my eyes all along.
