I wonder how pissed Tim Thomas was about the "You can Play" campaign?

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Trying to remember the sports books I used to like. I don't think they were mysteries but something weird happened. Like there was a hockey one where the guys played table hockey the night before and the game played out like their game somehow. Then there was some football team that played against an all-deaf team that used a bass drum for their snap count. I think they were the same series.

Anybody remember these?

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I'm in Canada (Vancouver) for the first time since I was like 10 years old. This place is pretty sweet guys.

I'm staying with some family friends, and so far I've had a bunch of Kokanee, a couple of Caesars, and a glass of Icewine. I feel like this is pretty Canadian - I'm pretty proud of myself.

Matt Christopher was a goddamn boss. He wrote a book about every sport possible. Dude probably has some Jai Alai mystery book or something.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Just bought some Ketchup Chips, and All Dressed Chips. Mind-blowing. I'd like a real Canadian to explain what All-Dressed is supposed to taste like - I have no ideaw.

Disappointing lack of milk in bags at the store. Apparently, not a Richmond/B.C. thing.

edit: I promise this is the end of my Canadian live-blogging tonight.

Haha, a Canadian coworker brought in all dressed chips a few years ago, I forgot about those. They were amazing.

Please continue the Canadian live-blogging!
