So I found Hockey Night in Canada on my sattelite.

You sure can tell the differences.

1. Canadian cameramen know how to follow the game MUCH better than American cameramen... they can anticipate... probably because they played the game too at some point.

2. Don Cherry. Love him hate him, love to hate him, hate the fact you love him, he IS Canadian hockey. In MANY ways, he is John Madden. A single face that anyone can associate with the game. Even if you hate him.

3. It is nice to here people discuss hockey intelligently. Yes, american announcers can do it too, but they assume (and probably rightly) that many who are watching don't know the finer points of the game.

4. I am watching... in HiDef. BIg Screen. WOW.
