Don't let lazy 20 C days fool you--it's almost winter. While Canadian summers mean beer and patios, winters mean beer and hockey. And October means another National Hockey League season is about to begin.
Mario is back for a whole year (hopefully), Peter Forsberg has no spleen and the Islanders are performing "Stupid Human Tricks" that would make Letterman proud. All these thoughts and musings are for later though, as hockey is unequivocally Canadian and we still have six teams in the league.
