10 Provinces: Overtime

So our 10 Province project is done and we would both like to thank you for coming along for the ride. Although the series officially ended yesterday, we would like to wrap up with one more thing.

Hockey is Canada's official winter sport. There has been a little debate about this here, with some people saying, "Non, lacrosse is the official sport." This is also true; Canada has two official sports, hockey is just the better one.

1972 was the first time there was ever an international hockey competition and Canada proudly won, beating the USSR in a game we will never let you forget.

* Here is a recap of our 10 Provinces posts:
Tomorrow officially starts our return to regular posting and I must say I am exhausted, yet stocked up on new post ideas. Until then!

I came late to the party and caught up on all of the provinces and artists as once, but this was awesome.

how do you do a hockey post and totally ignore the Zamboni's? They = hockey.
