Little Darcy on the Prairie

imageDarcy Tucker does have career aspirations.  And although there’s no confirmation that hockey is among them, he and Ron MacLean of Hockey Night in Canada have undertaken a new venture this summer: acting.

‘Little Mosque on the Prairie’ is a CBC television comedy with a large audience. And be you Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim or anything else in this country, hockey is on the menu for everyone.  So Tucker decides to join the mosque.

Note: I realize most readers outside of Canada won’t be familiar with the show but it has been a hit for CBC in recent months, syndicating itself in countries all over the world. And I always enjoy seeing hockey appear in small ways in pop culture, so it’s sort of cool to see a new venture.

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
