Why The NHL Will Kick The NBA’s Ass This Season

When We Win, It Annoys Canada
Hockey is Canada’s game. They live it, breathe it, and eat it alongside their so-called “bacon.” Yet only six of the NHL’s 30 teams are based in The Great White North — a fact that clearly bothers Canooks. You only had to watch the 2010 Olympics to see that; when the entire country erupted into tears and applause after Sidney Crosby potted the overtime game winner against us, it wasn’t just joy, it was relief. Hockey will also be a source of tension between us and our otherwise friendly northern neighbors, and that adds extra electricity to the games. Basketball is our game (well, for now, but more on that later) and even when we “Dream Team” it up, who’s all that psyched that we’re trouncing Angola?
