In the Category of Things you won't see in Canada

4

I usually don't put these type of things up because they are not strictly hockey related. So I'll tuck it off to the side and not put it on the front page. It can be rather controversial but I've seen a few articles now on SBNation about sexual orientation, military respect and so forth they don't strike me as particularly hockey related either. So I figured why not, it is the off-season. Why not put up something that I think is a real issue. I'll let the reader connect the dots for what this may or may not mean to sports markets, including hockey. This was on my local news last night. You'll recognize the T-shirt of a young fan. I also want to add that until you live in the United States you should be wary about jumping to conclusions. There are many differences. One myth is that Americans are lazy. Although those people that sit around and do nothing exist, they are no different in % to Canadians who do it. In reality in America many working-class Americans work 2-3 jobs as the college student in the video comments. That is inconceivable to most Canadians but it is true. I doubt she is getting Stars season tickets this upcoming season and if anything this Stampede in Dallas may give Calgarians a bit of pause in their yearly festive rodeo. Appreciate what you have...
