Speaking of riots, and cities that make me wince, there must have been plenty of sticky tears in Vancouver last night, as a small team with no guts (and an ill-timed scoring drought) went down in five games. To Los Angeles. Never "Canada's team", and glad to see them go. And a pleasant surprise to see the Penguins vaporized as well, even to such an unlikeable team as Philadelphia (the hockey equivalent of your retarded cousin), because now I don't have to hear endless reports on the status of Sid the Kid. Florida, L.A., St.Louis, Phoenix, Nashville ... I can almost hear the collective heads of NHL's front office exploding.
Also (probably) exploding today: Alberta. Can you imagine yourself driving down to the polling station, standing in line, getting your ballot, going behind the little stand and marking an 'x' for something called ... The Wildrose Alliance? What, the Rebel Alliance couldn't field enough candidates? This promises to provide me with *so* much mirth for years to come. Bring on the firewall!
