Hockeyville 2008 game

There was a wonderful pre-season game on tonight between the Montreal Canadiens and the Buffalo Sabres. Televised on the NHL Network, the game was played in a small 1,200 seat hockey arena in the city of Roberville, Quebec.

The national anthem of both Canada and the United States was sung by a woman with a French accent. It was a kick to hear her sing the Star Spangled Banner. It was great.

Last hockey season, nominees were received in an attempt to find the best city that exemplied the sport of ice hockey. It was a fun process to watch. And, the city of Roberville won.

Watching any hockey game held in Quebec is just pure entertainment and fun. I just love hearing the announcer in both English and French. Too cool.

Also, the way the crowd sings “Olaaay, Olay, Olaay…etc.” is pure entertainment. I wonder where that started from, what the history of it is. ?
