hockey all the time

A great story in yesterday’s Globe and Mail about the Battle of Alberta. Roy MacGregor really captures the heart of this rivalry between the Edmonton Oilers and the Calgary Flames. It definitely took me back…. Cool to see the battle entering the blogosphere, too

Of course, this being the morning after the opening night of the NHL season, it behooves me to point out that the Oilers beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 while the Flames were humiliated by the lost to the Wild 6-3.

If you’re reading this, you might want to take some time to explore this fabulous site on hockey from the National Library in Canada.

You’ll also want to check out this unit on Understanding Hockey/Understanding Canada from a Canadian Studies site we worked on a few years ago with Spotted Cow Press. That unit is written by my sister Heidi Jacobs, who also wrote this great profile on hockey literature for Northwest Passages.
