Way Up There

from the Edmonton Journal,
It's a good night to be a seal in Nunavut -- and especially near Grise Fiord, Canada's northernmost community, where Inuit like Amon Akeeagok are hanging up their rifles and crowding in front of TVs to watch the Oilers play. And they're cheering with all the noise you'd expect from the hockey-mad. "You can go as far as Anaheim if you want and you'll probably hear me," said Akeeagok, who wears his Oilers love on his house, 2,800 kilometres north of Edmonton. "I got my Oiler street sign on my doorway so everybody who's coming in can't miss it," he said. "We're loyal hockey fans up here."
