This Saturday is Hockey Day in Canada.
The theme of this year’s Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada broadcast is ‘Community’ and will include features that examine the common bond Canadians share through hockey and the local rinks in which it is played as well as the role the game plays in bringing Canadian communities together from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Throughout the broadcast CBC will look in on hockey-related events taking place in community ies across the country including Prince George, BC, Barry’s Bay, ON and Sydney, NS. CBC has four games on tap for us. In the afternoon, we start with Rangers-Senators and Oilers-Jets. Later, we have Canadiens-Leafs and Flames-Canucks.
Upper Deck has returned with their National Hockey Card Day promotion. You can read about it here.
Closer to home, Legends Taphouse and Grill is hosting Hockey Day in Brant. The big prize will be a limousine ride to the Canadiens-Leafs game right after the draw at 5:00 PM. Former NHL'er Shayne Corson and another unnamed player will be on hand to draw the winning ticket and sign autographs.
I'll be busy on Saturday as I also have another commitment. No rest for the wicked.
Also, last Sunday I went to an art exhibit for one of my friends. He did a unique piece for my birthday two years ago. I wrote about it here . We have also bought a couple of other pieces.
