    What is up with the comments??? And who cares about the fans in St.Johns..Micheal will have a great homecoming in Bonavista..where everyone, regardless of their "preferred'' team is extremely proud of him...As for Glenn Whiffen...he is from Bonavista...and as far as I can tell, last time I checked, we are canadians as well......Enjoy your day Micheal....we are so very proud of you!

    According to Photo 4 it was "a gathering of INVITED guests" :-) I am guessing that the Telegram reporter who posted the pictures (Mr. Whiffen?) is a disgruntled Habs fan given that the word "Canadiens" shows up whenever you hover the mouse pointer over one of the pictures.

    hmmm...didn't even know there was the opportunity to see Mike and the Cup in St. John's - looks like the politicians kept this event to themselves.

    By the looks of these people and what theyre wearing, where they are, plus the fact thats Kathy Dunderdale there Power, I don't think this was open to just anyone. Don't think your assesment is fair.

    Hmm, 50 people, what a turn out! I guess Ryder doesn't have many fans in St. John's.
