    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.

    4 Canadian players on the Spartans roster, out of a list of 26

    8 out of 52. Wow. Impressive.

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

    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.
