No offense there Kowch but I think time away leaves you with fond and often rose-coloured glasses. While you bask in the Florida sun, the 'tribe' here has been stuck listening to Bob Cole mispronounce hockey player's names. Greg Millen has been even more obnoxious on HNIC since you left.
You presume to know me. So it's quiz time.
When did I leave Canada? (Since you seem to know when I left, this should be easy)
Where did I live prior to leaving Canada?
Why did I move to Florida?
What's my favouite colour?
Who's my favourite all time player?
How old am I?
Let me know how you score with this preliminary round of questions.
Didn't score so well did you? Well, thanks for playing.
You may not want to presume anything as it makes you look stupid.
When I'm out of the country I tend to like Canadian beer better and end up talking about how great Alberta beef is in comparison to whatever meat it is I'm eating in a foreign land.
Thanks for trying to invalidate my opinion by playing the "Oh, but you don't even live here" card. Listen up: I'm still a Canadian citizen, I still vote (with an absentee ballot) and I still read CBC.ca on a daily (almost hourly) basis. While I currently reside in the US, I still watch hockey and drink Canadian beer and the highlight of my hockey watching is when I get a CBC feed with my NHL Center Ice package. So don't presume to think I see things through rose coloured glasses or that I'm waxing nostalgic because I'm not.
Join the rest of the tribe. We know what we speak of. The CBC isn't as great as you once remembered it.
Oh, so the CBC has totally gone downhill since late 2004 eh? (Crap.. I just gave you an answer to the quiz... oh well... I guess I can live with giving you a gimme).
Your opinion has been in the minority as far as I'm concerned. You're entitled to your opinion, and as I said, you're not going to change mine nor the opinion of the majority of my friends and family back home.
PS - They cancelled the Beachcombers as well while you were gone.
PS - you're being an asshole. (But that's not news around here).
