This is supposed to be FUNNY? A dogfight among Canadian hockey players suddenly becomes international?



What's international is that our (Washington DC) Russian is in deep du-du...

Lordje, the point here is that the reason Fred's post was so funny is that both the Canadian and American professional hockey teams, are mostly composed of players who are Canadian by birth. This is because Canadians literally grow up playing hockey - I'm told they're not allowed to attend elementary school unless they already know how to skate and use a hockey stick.

At least, I think I was told that.

So just like basketball, the Olympic hockey teams have players who may or may not really have been born in the country they're representing.

LOL. In fact some of the Canadian team players live here in Florida and play for the Tampa Bay Lightning professional hockey team.

That sign is GREAT!!!

What is Tom Horton's? A truck stop chain like Pilot/Flying J here? I stopped in a Pilot during a long trip, just to grab something to eat. It was so greasy that for an experiment I tipped up one side of my plate a little, and the food slid off and across the aisle.
