One more Canada thing...

From the Omni Hotel in Montreal.

SportsCenter in Canada is remarkably similar to the U.S. version. Similar graphics, similar attitude, different editorial perspective. The top-10 appearances by an athlete on a talk show were all appearances on American talk shows, but included an appearance by Wayne Gretzky (hockey), Steve Nash (basketball), and Pittsburgh's latest adopted Canadian transplant, Sidney Crosby.

I have to admit the Crosby was classic. They showed a picture of his mom's clothes dryer, dented and marked by pucks being shot at it, followed by Sidney Crosby shooting slapshot after slapshot into a clothes dryer.

I'm hoping to get up and do about 4 miles of exploring on the street in the morning, so I better get to bed.
