Hockey Night in Canada


Today is the opening day of the NHL (National Hockey League) and this is a huge event in Toronto. Our Maple Leafs haven't won the Stanley Cup since 1967, but the beginning of a new season fills everyone with hope - the newspapers are full of hockey, newscasts are brimming with interviews, even part of our main street, Yonge St, is shut down for hockey events. All the sports bars will be packed and this pic shows one of the most popular ones - Wayne Gretzky's ( "the Great One", #99). The best part for me is the hockey player on the roof which revolves and is exactly like the players in the old table-hockey games!

This looks like a fun place to go before a game. I sometimes wonder why sports figures end up the the restaurant business.
