Hockey Fever

I posted earlier this week about the contagious enthusiasm here in Raleigh around the hockey playoffs. Nowhere is that fever more rampant than in Canada where hockey is THE sport. Here's the Canadian national anthem from the Edmonton/Anaheim game on Tuesday night. This is a great, spontaneous display that gave me chills. Fans in San Jose who booed during Oh Canada earlier in the playoffs should watch this and learn from it.

Hat tip to Chris LeDuc for forwarding this gem.

Thought you'd like that. Canada is tops in hockey, period. And, like the ACC, they produce that certain caliber athelete and fan base that the US simply cannot match.
