Hockey night in Canada — tres bien!

One great Canadian ritual is the Saturday evening “Hockey Night in Canada” broadcast. Except for the fortunate few in border states where CBC plays on cable, Americans miss out on the fun.

I was thrilled to get a call this evening from my daughter, who with her husband was on her way to the arena in Pittsburgh to see the Penguins play the Maple Leafs. That’s one of tonight’s “HNIC” games being beamed back to the Great White North.

Hockey Night has a full line of merchandise available through the CBC Web site, including the French-language cap shown above that would be a fantastique addition to my collection.
