No hockey for Hamilton.
Please don't get all indignant on me. I know there are hockey teams here. I've even been to a few Bulldogs games.
(Which puts me in a real pickle, by the way. Am I supposed to cheer for the Bulldogs, because they're in Hamilton? Or am I supposed to not cheer for the Bulldogs, because they're the farm team for the Habs-our-sworn-enemies?)
But there's no NHL team for Hamilton. No reason to stop cheering for the Leafs.
(Again, I know there are all kinds of reasons to stop cheering for the Leafs. But in this house, only geography will change that.)
Ah well. The B & B Conflict (Balsillie & Bettman) was an exciting diversion over the summer; far more exciting for me than the actual game of hockey. I just wanted my town to get a shot of excitement. I wanted my property value to increase a little bit.
And I wanted new hockey bling in the basement.
