Le Chandail de Hockey

I'd never heard of this children's book, but then I don't know why I would have; I'm too old for it, and not really Quebecois. But I'm enough Quebecois to share in the sentiment of the climax:

"So Carrier heads off to church where — and this is my favorite part — “I asked God to send me right away, a hundred million moths that would eat up my Toronto Maple Leafs sweater.”

Right on. For more on Quebec cultural identity & hockey, see here.
