Why hockey is hot

When it comes to hockey, I’m a fair-weather fan; furthermore, since Dr. T is not into blood sports, we tend not to watch. Last night, though, he was away for his usual Wednesday evening of Scrabble, and I was hosting my usual Wednesday card night, the participants in which are true hockey fans.

I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed that someday soon, nos glorieux will rise again.
