  • HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA!!

    The NHL season is getting closer, with preseason games being played out...

    How many hockey fans here, and who is your team? I'm happy to have enjoyed some great playoff hockey last year (after the Decade of Darkness™) and can't wait for the season to start! Hoping to see a three-peat for m'boy Connor, and at least a division title...


    Any other fans? Who's your team?

          This Canuck is actually rooting for the hockey season starting again...As Canada usually only has two seasons, Hockey Season and July, it's been a long wait!!

                Us Yanks living in border cities have it great. We get to watch HNIC instead of the mainly lame American announcers. I remember that HNIC on a B&W TV was a tradition in our house, starting in the 60's.

                  Oilers undefeated through rookie tourney and all preseason games so far. Preseason is mostly meaningless, but this is a great way to start!

                  I've gotta think the Pens are the favorite as well, but I like our chances. I was a late teen when the Oil won their 5 cups, and remember the years of building up, getting closer; the heartbreaking loss to the NYI in the 82-83 finals... What I am enjoying so much is the recognition that 'this is all happening again'... I'm loving the transition - watching them put the pieces together and start to gel - this is great!

                  Speaking of HNIC, can you believe they lost the rights to the opening music?

                      ... don't you recognize him? A born transient hockey rebel, before he moved to Fredericton young Sparlingo lived in Edmonton, and was in your class, and you never played with him!

                      Ah, the shame of it all ...

                              I thought that Newfoundland was its own separate plane of existence.
