Merci, M. Brodeur!

And thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of Team Canada, for bringing the World Cup home!

Our TV moratorium continues - a raving success, btw - so I listened to the game on CBC Radio One. Radio broadcasting of hockey (and baseball, for that matter) is a fine art, which the folks at CBC have mastered. I dare say that radio is the superior medium for experiencing The Good Old Hockey Game - especially this game. It brings us back to the heart of hockey - playing for the love of the game, and for God and Country. No contracts, no cloying commercials, no octopi thrown on the ice in cities that never reach temperatures below 10C - and no annoying Americanized red line showing where the puck is going.
