Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jason Gay of the Wall Street Journal,
Be happy for Canadians. They wanted this game more than Brett Favre wants to wave another Super Bowl ring at Green Bay. Hockey is a national identity here, and losing may have sent this country into an unfathomable funk. Nobody is supposed to beat Canada in hockey, just like nobody is supposed to beat the U.S. in Kardashians.
This will be one of those games that people will lie about being at for the rest of their lives. However, we have a feeling most of Canada actually was here along with the great Mr. Shatner, who was born in Montreal.
We weren’t among the Maple Leaf plutocrats who plunked down as much as $4,000 for a nosebleed inside Canada’s Hockey Place. We opted for the cozier—and louder—surroundings of the Saskatchewan House—a white tent on the water not far from the arena. Inside was everything a hockey fan needed: a spiffy green carpet, wobbly tables, BBQ bison burgers and $8 plastic cups of Molson Canadian. You could also buy white wine and water, if you didn’t mind being arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
