Canadian = hockey expert
Last night my ward went to a hockey game for FHE! The Washington Capitals were playing the Montreal Canadiens. I was WAY excited for a Canadian team to be playing. It was a lot of fun to be there... even if our seats were the 3 row from the VERY top!! I never knew that being a Canadian meant I needed to be a hockey expert. Within the first 10 minutes of the game I had 4 people ask me about rules of the game. When I told them I didn't know, their response was, "Aren't you Canadian, you are supposed to know EVERYTHING about hockey!" Sheesh! I did ask one girl if she knew everything about baseball (supposedly an American sport) and she said that she did know alot.... well that didn't work as well as I thought. But come on... who doesn't know the rules of baseball. You hit the ball and run. I don't know about penalties and the markings on the ice and all that jazz. I really should write a book of everything a Canadian needs to know before moving to the U.S... hmmmm.... I could make millions. Ha ha! (And in case you were wondering, I didn't take the picture... I wish!!) But fights really are the best part about a hockey game!
