Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Hockey City

from Michael Farber of Sports Illustrated,

Welcome to Montreal, All-Star city.

You probably will notice that in city of crater-sized potholes and lunatic drivers that there are no right turns permitted on red lights, that the French lettering on commercial signs is twice as large as the English lettering (although spoken English is permitted to be at the same decibel level as spoken French, so you don’t have to whisper), that the legal drinking age is superceded by a drinking height (sure, officially you have to be 18 but if you can see over the bar, there is an excellent chance you will be served) and that we take our hockey extremely seriously—even that high-end confection known as the NHL All-Star Game.

The reason: The City is Hockey.
