I wanted to point you into the direction of Stephen Brunt's excellent column at the Globe and Mail/CTV Olympics website entitled "High Expectations: there's hockey and there is everything else."
It is an excellent read, and nicely shows how important hockey is here in Canada. There is nowhere else in the world that is quite the same.
I thought that would be a great read as we head into hockey completely dominating the sports and news pages full board this coming week. Summer is over, suggests Bruce Dowbiggin, as Team Canada's Olympic orientation camp starts on Monday.
GHL will have a special focus on the Olympics all season, starting fully this week with several big features.
