Love in the Long Canadian Nite

Brett Hull, star forward for the Phoenix Coyotes was on the "Weekend Update" segment of "Saturday Nite Live" and was asked by co-anchor Amy Poehler, as a Canadian, what he thought about the recent landmark ruling by Canada's Supreme Court that gay marriage was constitutional.

"That's what happens in Canada when there's no hockey," Hull said. "Guys have more time to hang out, talk about their feelings, next thing you know they're in love with each other.

"I've got nothing against it," he added, "but I'd rather be playing hockey."

Doesn't look like Brett will get his wish.

Hockey Blog up for Sports Blog of Year

Off Wing Opinion one of the best hockey blogs that we follow is up for a 2004 Weblog Award as best "Sports Blog." Voting goes until Dec. 12th. The system allows one vote per day. Off Wing is currently 4th and we'll chip in and do what we can to advance the puck heads. It also looks like someone should get a game misconduct for trying to rig the voting for "Best Overall Blog."
