Salute to Canada!

Salute to Canada

Back in college, I used to enjoy Labatt Blue quite a bit (“quite a bit” is a very subject term and open to debate as to what it actually means).  Whenever I grabbed a bottle of the Blue, I always gave it a two finger “Salute to Canada” for crafting, what I thought at the time, a really good beer.  Well fast forward many years later and I find the Blue good, but without the “really”. 

Well, with the end of the Olympics in Vancouver tonight and the USA v Canada hockey game on now, I couldn’t think of a better time to once again salute the Great White North.  Yes, I know Rush won’t play the Closing Ceremonies, but I have listened to Jonathan Coulton’s Curl endlessly, thanks to a reminder from one of Eric’s tweets.  Thanks for some great games Canada.  Now to make arrangements to actually go see the games in London in 2012.  There, my beer choices take off exponentially!

Yeah, what a game-I'm pretty hopeful that this represents the US move to the elite hockey powers.
