Friday Fun: Aragorn wears La Sainte-Flanelle!

As many of you no doubt are aware, my favourite hockey team, the Montreal Canadiens are celebrating their centennial this year. As part of the celebrations the CBC is airing a special on the team.

Andrew Ryan of the Globe and Mail wrote an article on the special, from which I extract this quote:

In the most notable star endorsement, American actor Viggo Mortenson, a long-time fan, reveals he wore a classic Canadiens logo T-shirt under his Aragorn breastplate throughout the making of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. "It gave me just a little more power with the sword," he says.

How cool is that?

BTW, it's worth noting that Ryan makes a fairly serious error in Canadiens nomenclature in the article. Bonus points to anyone who finds the mistake.
