So here's us, on the raggedy edge.

Big Canadian News Today

Hockey’s back, and a Sasquatch sighting in Teslin, Yukon on the same day.’ Only in Canada, eh? Pity.

The best part of the Sasquatch story, as reported on CBC TV, was the reference to one of the people who heard it “relieving himself outside” while the noise was happening, without even a trace of embarassment.

As for Hockey, Don Cherry is saying the owners have won. I’m not sure which group of multimillionaire I’m more sympathetic too, but a salary cap is a good thing, if it’s reflected in the ticket price. Salary caps, of course, don’t require revenue caps - greedy owners may turn out to be a bigger problem than greedy players.

I’m sure going to miss all those movies on Saturday nights though.

Incidentally, am I the only person who was surprised to find out that Phoenix had a hockey team? What have I been doing all these years - I gotta get me to some desert ice.
