Can't do it. Heart problems with hypertension. Couldn't have done it 50 years ago either and I was healthy then.

2-0 and Canada is at a stand still. I checked the TV and it is on nearly every station. Cops are in the doughnut shops with big screens.:rolleyes:

Looks like the leaving it up to the Canadians to make sure North America got some Precious Metals was a good plan. :thumbs_up:

Just before I moved to Calgary in the 1970's they banned what I think were called beer barns but they were recreated in the larger hotels for the Stampede each year. Amazing places to those who grew up in the "Men" or "Ladies and Escorts" in Ontario.

I was in the dental chair when Paul Henderson scored the goal. www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMf2fAXPS1Q The dentist (an Egyptian) had it on the radio and we were hopping around the office.

Our new CEO arrived in Toronto at the beginning of a series between Russia and Canada and won the hearts of his employees by getting 2 large tvs put in the cafeteria and telling folks to feel free to leave their desks to watch. The series may have been played in Russia given it was on during work hours. Hockey is serious chit.

In '72 I was in high school and the whole class skipped to watch the game at guys place in the town where the school was. Two of the teachers came down too. That was the importance of it to us out here in the middle of know where.:cheerful:
True story. One time me and a buddy had put the truck in the ditch and were using the only thing we had to dig it out, hockey sticks. A cop came along, got out and asked,"Are you stuck?". Buddy pipes up,"Nope, lost the puck". Cop laughed and drove away.:hmpf:

Great stuff. I turned it on to take a peek and they were lined up for the medal ceremony. My wife asked "Who won?" I said look at the faces.

I drive her crazy by telling there are gold medals and loser medals. She argues and I ask innocently "did the awardee of the silver medal win or lose the race?"

I expect that my death will come about by being stabbed in the chest with a breadknife in the middle of the night but it is fun.

Beauty, eh?

I sent it to Queenfisher. I will probably be dead or maimed by midnight.
