Q: What does the Calgary hockey club have in common with the botched cauldron-lighting ceremony in Vancouver?
A: It's five Flames standing around not knowing what to do.

We will lead off by saying that we get excited about the Olympics. A 13 year old girl at a Justin Bieber autograph signing type excited. So you will have to take us with a grain of salt once the games kick get underway as we post 12,789 gushing comments like “Aren’t the Canadian Mens’ two man bobsled team the BOMB? Can you believe that Lyndon Rush won’t sled with Pierre Lueders anymore? What’s up with that?”

I’m stoked the Olympics are almost here, and unlike most Canadians I actually am looking forward to more than just the hockey tournament. Of course fans will be watching every moment of the men’s hockey, and rightfully so, but do the networks really need to try and up-sell it to the fans.

It’s hard to pinpoint a definitive time or place that hockey was invented. There are many arguments and people always have different opinions. It’s generally accepted that during the eighteen hundreds, British soldiers played a version of the game while they were stationed in Nova Scotia. Another story tells of a teacher at the Kings View Academy Nova Scotia who asked his pupils to make up a winter sport on the frozen pond as part of a project — it is thought that the game his students created resembled that of hockey.
