Happy Canada Day, Fellow Canucks

    Nice to have a day off in the middle of the week. It's even nicer since HC doesn't have a show today so we get to hang out together.

    And Roy MacGregor, as always, says it best


    There are signs, as well, that Canadians are finally turning away from picking through their own bellybutton lint in an endless search for self-identity.

    That old joke about a Canadian coming to a fork in the road – one sign pointing to “Heaven,” the other to “Panel Discussion on Heaven” – and the Canadian scurrying off to talk about it seems out of date.

    Have a good one folks and be grateful that you came to or were born in one of the greatest countries in the world.

    I'm not a fellow Canuck but I consider myself an honourary one as I look at your beautiful country out my window. Happy Canada Day to you and be happy that you were born in such an open-minded, generous soul of a nation.

    What, this couldn't go on the hockey thread? ;D

    What's this about a day off in the middle of the week? apparently my boss diddn't get the memo. Oh well I will bank that OT with glee.

    But yes, happy Canada Day everyone.

    Among other things enjoy the start of the CFL season and NHL free agency.

    May your maple syrup be sweet and your beer ice cold.

    I am working today and taking Friday off. The office is dead and I have my satellite radio boombox going.

    Also making puppies loafing on SportsJournalists.com.

    Life is good. If I can find some Stomin Tom I will be in heaven (lost all of it off my old work laptop)

    Blue Jays are wearing red kit with CANADA in place of the players' names on the back.

    Yay for them. Won't help 'em win. :D

    Sirs, Madames,

    Ah, a Roy MacGregor column on Canadian identity. Never a week goes by ... the least likely source for breaking news on the death of Canadian-identity introspection.

    Outing alert: Magic in the Night is Sarah Palin

    Bonne Fete Canada!
