"Hello out there, we're on the air, it's Hockey Night tonight.
Tension grows, the whistle blows, and the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps, and the players bump, and the fans all go insane.
Someone roars "Bobby scores!" at the good ole' hockey game."
Canada and hockey go together like bacon and eggs.
Basically, if you live in Canada, you are born loving hockey. Although many play the sport, few are great at it, but that doesn't matter, because we can all appreciate a good ole' hockey game, right? After all, it's the best game you can name.
I've been cheering on the The Ottawa Senators forever, and maybe, just maybe, this will be the year they'll finally take home the Stanley Cup.
The 2015-2016 season is about to kick-off, and I'm SO excited. Seriously. So pumped. The first home game will be on Sunday, October 11th at the Canadian Tire Centre.
Canadian Tire wants to get hockey fans in the mood for the first game, so starting tomorrow, the Canadian Tire Hockey Truck (see picture below? It's pretty hard to miss!) will be at different locations around the city to get everyone excited for the upcoming hockey season. There will be fun activities for the entire family, so bring the kids, since they'll be off from school. A perfect start to the long weekend!
You can take part in games and activities and you'll even get the chance to receive autographs from past and present Ottawa Senators hockey players. Of course, lot of prizes are up for grabs, too.
