And I will throw out my own WTF?!  haha  Sorry, Canadians are all about the 
NHL and the Stanley Cup right now.  The Carolina Hurricanes vs. the Edmonton 
Oilers (I live about 2 hours west of Edmonton), game 7 for all the marbles 
on Monday night.

And to answer Chris, yes, hockey crazed fans can take over.  We were in 
Vegas for IWCE last month and we went ESPN Zone in the New York New York to 
watch hockey.  I was surprised by two things: first, the number of Canadians 
there to watch hockey.  haha  Second, I was surprised by the number of 
Americans who had no idea why all of these fools were getting so excited 
over a hockey game.  We had to argue with the manager just to get the sound 
on after a basketball game.  I guess with the number of American teams in 
the NHL more people would be into it.  I was wrong.  But the Canadians made 
quite a noise there that night that will not soon be forgotten by those that 
were there.  haha  Good times.
