Hockey Night In Canada set to return this October!
There are many reasons why, at 37 years old, I am still single. Perhaps it is because I am too picky. Perhaps because I am not willing to put up with the probing and BS of dating.
Or perhaps, it's because I'd much rather spend a Saturday night watching Hockey Night In Canada than going out trolling for women who aren't watching Hockey Night In Canada themselves. This is a classic catch-22: I can't meet new women because I'm watching great play-by-play from Bob Cole and Harry Neal, as well as expert commentary on Satellite Hotstove, and of course, the tandem of show host Ron MacLean and studio commentator Don Cherry, who's first period intermission segment "Coaches Corner" is the best 5 minutes of the week; and if I were to go out and seek out women when I would much rather be home watching Hockey Night In Canada, the women out there obviously don't like hockey, or else they'd be at home watching Hockey Night In Canada, and who would want to be involved with a woman that doesn't like hockey? So, unless the people at the CBC website can come up with a dating service designed for men and women in North America who's first requirement is to be Hockey Night In Canada viewers, I'm afraid I will continue to be single...
In all seriousness, not having hockey was awful last year. Hey NHL and NHLPA, don't do it ever again. God bless hockey.
