A lot of mixing of politics and sports of late. For example, guess who Canucks forward Kyle Wellwood's favourite author is right now?
- He prefers to read instead of watching TV: "I read everything. I change my mind all the time. Sometimes I don't get through the books, but I like buying them. I'll read fantasy novels. I tried to read Twilight and I couldn't read that. My favourite author right now? I like Michael Ignatieff."Wellwood, who joined the Canucks from the Maple Leafs, has also caught-on to the thing I miss the most about West Coast living. Well, besides the mountains, and the ocean, the salt air, and everything else:
He prefers Vancouver hockey fans to those in Toronto: "It's such a contrast from Toronto where people come up to you all the time. In Vancouver it's extremely rare that somebody would approach you, even at dinner or if you were at a bar having a drink. That's been really nice. Getting to watch sports at 4 p.m. instead of 7 is nice, too."Word to that. Still, I'm hoping for many late nights watching lots of Canucks games this year.
And at least I don't live in Saskatchewan. I hear they don't even get cable there. They have to use the rabbit ears, and the signal gets pretty snowy when the wind picks up the smell from the manure piles. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
