Kukla's Korner Hockey

Now, for the first time in Canada, the once-heretical thought that our national faith might be better served by someone other than St. Wayne is getting air and ink time. The irony in all of this is that Gretzky's gambling spouse, predicted to distract Team Canada's quest for gold, has vanished in the flames of our Inquisition into the Great One's holiness. And those flames will burn until our next chance to reclaim the faith at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Then, however, the gold medal will be contested in the land of hockey's birth before an even more unforgiving hometown crowd. St. Wayne has said he'd like Canada to win the next men's hockey gold, whether he's "part of it or not." But it might not be his decision. Winning the men's hockey gold shouldn't be miraculous; it's our divine right. By failing to even make it to the medal round, St. Wayne needs to find himself a miracle now.more (reg. req.)
