WORLD JUNIORS ARE ON

The best thing about returning to Canada from Las Vegas when I did was that I arrived back home just in time for the World Juniors.

The games are being held in my neck of the woods -- namely, Saskatchewan. Saskatoon and Regina are hosting the games and you can follow the exciting tournament action by going to the IIHF website, or by going to TSN's World Junior Hockey page; TSN is also showing the tournament on TV. Also, the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix has complete coverage of the tournament here..

It's exciting sports times for Saskatchewan. This is yet another big-time sporting event for our province, following up on the excitement and big Grey Cup letdown of the Saskatchewan Roughriders football season.

Still, I don't exactly know the reason why the World Juniors have emerged as such a big deal in this country at this time of year. Must be something to do with the fact that Canada wins at this all the time.
