It’s Almost October

I would say “let’s celebrate the return of hockey,” but:

  1. Preseason hockey isn’t really hockey and it’s barely televised so whatever
  2. Baseball is still going and I live in a city that actually will have a team playing in October

Canada’s off the hook, though; their two teams (the Jays and the Mariners) aren’t within shooting distance of the playoffs, and this is still the part of the year when Canadians convince themselves that their respective teams have a chance at the Cup.
