Doesn't appear to be a typo, what's the deal with a Monday matinee? Making room for Tigers and Red Sox that evening?

That's 10 AM out of here. I'll be having second breakfast and watching the game. Ha ha

 

Liked purely for the reference to Second Breakfast :)

 

I'll be having my tea for what its worth :)


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Columbus Day/Canadian Thanksgiving.

 

It's two American teams.

What's more traditional than Detroit playing on Thanksgiving?  We've been doing it since the 1930's.

 

Granted it's the Lions and it's the US Thanksgiving, but you'd think people were unaware of the concept.

 

Now we know how the Canadians feel when the Lions play on their workday.

We don't care that much, now if our hockey teams played on a workday at 1pm, you might see some riots

The afternoon Columbus Day games have been going on for years now. Do you guys all have amnesia?

 

Also, how is this much different from people going to a Tigers game on a weekday afternoon? There are a lot of suits and other people taking a "three-period-lunch" at these usually.

The Wings haven't played in one, (at least in the last decade or so) so most of us never noticed since, you know, we were at work...

I see the NHL finally got my letter about me having to stay up late to watch games.

Cheers Gary.

Yeah, those of us who usually have to miss Monday games or have to get up in the middle of the night get ONE game in a decade, and the world implodes on those who are inconvenienced.  Welcome to our world.  I'm enjoying the single day of the planets aligning for me.  Tomorrow the rest will be back to coming home from work for a game that I will be missing because I'll be working and things will be back to normal in the universe.

 

You'd think it was the Mayan Lizard People all over again.

I absolutely love it. Day off work, turkey left overs and Red Wing game.

 

Hard to beat.

What, are you guys just co-opting our thanksgiving and traditions?  lol

 

 

Shouldn't you guys be celebrating with poutine and Labatts?  Maybe a little back bacon?

 

 

 

;)

And TimBits - don't forget the TimBits.  Pumpkin flavored.

 

Yay, I get to watch the game at work, Boo, I have to keep my mouth shut.  


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Oh Americans...always think people are copying you...lol

 

First Canadian Thanksgiving - 1578.

 

First American Thanksgiving - 1621.

 

It did become a national holiday in the US first though. They also have slightly different meanings.

 

The more you know...


And yes I would love to have poutine, real Canadian beer, timbits and back bacon. lol

 

We even call back bacon "Canadian Bacon" lol
