...cause you got a bunch of people to watch?
Aha, Ha, Ha, Ha..you're gonna have to win a lot more games and championships for that to be true!
At present Michigan doesn't own anything...it was all rent to own!

Rent to own indeed. Like most of their hockey players.

And did they watch?? You could hardly see the players from the top, let alone the puck.

Hockey with binoculars, how cool is that?? NOT!! :) :) :)

Rent-to-own players? You mean like the Toronto Blue Jays? Like your local football team?

Let's see...

Four Canadian players on the UM Wolverines, out of a roster of 26.

"Eight years after it hosted the first outdoor game in NHL history, Canada will finally get a second crack at it.

The Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames will take part in the 2011 Heritage Classic on Feb. 20 at McMahon Stadium, home to the Canadian Football League's Calgary Stampeders"

I'm talking the economy....ha, ha, ha!
Wow 8 out of 52 that's good...they usually don't get off the ice, so that's like 16!!!
And, I'm sure they are happy to have them. One happens to be a local boy!
How about you?

The representative for Guinness said it may take months to get the accurate figure.

Either way, it's a world record. Just how much larger than the other ones is now the question.

If this is turning into a Michigan vs Canada thing I got to admit Michigan has the rest of the world beat on a lot more than just Hockey game attendance.

I didn't backtrack, but I did notice you're jealous we have the record for hockey attendance! :)

You back tracked...ha, ha, ha...you back tracked!
It's not about jealousy, it's about getting it right.
Congrats on the record, now all you have to do is explain to them what they watched!

We have the record. Just another in a long series of steps that will eventually end with the U.S. taking over hockey.

It's inevitable.

When being wrong 100% of the time becomes common, I will gladly turn in my American citizenship for Canadian citizenship, as it is only then I could ever feel at home in Canada :)

Right back to a never was, too.

After all, global warming is blowing away so many backyard rinks, the numbers of kids be able to play is probably going to drop.
And a sport without facilities ain't gonna last.
