Jets Ready

from Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press,

As ready goes, they’d already like to be rolling down the runway.

The new version of the Jets, though, must wait one more day before it’s time for takeoff on the NHL’s return-to-Winnipeg season.

The Jets and Montreal Canadiens will usher in the new era of the NHL here at 4 p.m.(5pm ET) Sunday at the MTS Centre.

“I don’t think this is a routine week,” said Jets left-winger Evander Kane, his team now only one practice away from getting to the start line. “It’s a week that hasn’t happened in this city for 15 years.

“Looking at Sunday, I think it’s a game where history is made and guys are excited and the city’s excited. It’s going to be a real special game.”


Will you be tuning it to watch the game, which is on the NHL Network in the US and CBC in Canada?

I’ll watch the game, just to see what type of team the Jets have.

All the flag-waving, parochialism, and ‘me, me, me’ jingoism surrounding this has become nauseating; and you can bet CBC will push that agenda to the limit today.

Yes, that would be the same CBC that criticizes Americans for flag-waving, parochialism, and ‘me, me, me’ jingoism.

Bingo, I will watch as much as I can stomach.
