O Canada, Where Most Hockey Dreams Die

I spent some time in Canada last week. En route, I was thrilled to see the Air Canada plane had seat-back TVs. I was looking forward to turning our flight delay into a productive binge of shows I had missed. Upon scanning the TV offerings and finding not a single show that we have here in the States, I realized I would not be able to do so. A man across the aisle noticed my frustration and said it had to do with rights issues. I noticed he was watching, very closely and with great animation, an old hockey game. At least I think it was an old game, since it’s July. I, too, chose the hockey game, but I nodded off.
