Lineup Change

Saturday, April 28, 2007
Shaw Cable (my local provider) moved a number of stations around on my dial recently. Fine. They do that every once in a while, no biggie. I recently discovered though that they've added BBC World to our programming. Score. Flicking through the channels this morning, I happened once again upon the station and discovered a sports program they had on. It was very bizarre to hear the announcer, who has a fabulous accent (the same could not be said for the prepubescent looking weather announcer), talking about the hockey playoffs. Is there a big enough interest over there in hockey to bother with them? I suppose for those North Americans living and working overseas, sure. But what about the Brits themselves?

Perhaps your question is best answered by "is gambling popular in Britian?" heh heh.

Um, I always laugh about hockey in england with my English friends because they never say "hockey" they always say "ice hockey" cracks me up because for us...its HOCKEY!

But I understand grass hockey is a fairly popular sport for Britian.

We have a hockey league over here, but it's very much a minority sport. Saying that though, people who are into ice hockey are REALLY into hockey.

Why are your word verifications soooooo long?

Oh, I forgot people say ice hockey in America too...I guess it's just Canada who says HOCKEY!
