Montreal Canadian’s Training Center Collapse


I'm not a hockey fan (I'm sorry) which sometimes a little strange since I've lived my whole life in the suburbs of Montreal. Of course I don't get excited over other sports either so meh.

I did get excited when I heard that the Montreal Canadians were building a training center in my town. It's going to be a state of the art facility with two NHL spec rinks and a FIFA spec soccer (or football depending where you're from) field.

The town is going to get to use the rink which will be really cool for kids to play there when the Canadian aren't. I'm sure this will pay off when the kids are of team sports playing age. There will also be a restaurant, bar and of course monitory gift shop.

Last week though part of the center collapsed. Luckily no one was seriously injured.

There was some orange do not cross tape up and a little security car I guess to make sure people don't got mucking about. As you can see, it doesn't look like they have it all cleared away yet.

Damn You Apple

I jokingly said with being out the loop the this last week, "oh watch the iPhone get released or something". Well it wasn't the iPhone, but now we (Canadians) can spend too much on television just like our neighbors to the south.

Of course this being Canada you can buy Hockey on iTunes. I just would have thought that they would have nice cover art for the Stanley Cup Classics. It looks very 1996 I think.
