Since Lord Stanley's Cup seldom if ever goes to a team actually located in Canada, nowadays, we resort to saying things like "St. Louis has a more Canadian roster than Boston!"

::)

How about those Raptors, though, eh?

I supported the Blues 50/50. My wife was raised in St. Louis, and my favorite In-Laws all live there.

What is this "Hockey" you speak of?  Is it a sport?!

Hockey is indeed a sport, just not played in Nebraska, because Tom Osborne has not issued the royal edict needed within to play.

"N" stands for Nowledge . . .

Nah ... http://www.hookedonhockeymagazine.com/soccer-injuries-vs-hockey-injuries/
Soccer injuries are a bit "overdone".  When you see a soccer player go down, you'd think he needs to be given Last Rites, and two minutes later he's back on the field, apparently none the worse for wear.  I'd think they'd be a bit embarrassed about that.

I think the real ruffians play Rugby! AKA: American football with no safety equipment and very few rules. Do they actually play this hockey game you speak of in Missery, Colonel Drydock Sir?
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

There is this professional team in St Louis, y'see, named the "Blues".  They done real good this year. 


I know,  ice is something you break so the cows can get a drink.  Though I have heard there are some decent college teams up in the flatlands.
