The hockey fans are reacting by saying they don't want to watch boring election night coverage -- but I don't understand why anyone would call elections boring. In fact, they're pretty exciting with a lot of human drama! (Politicians losing their jobs, leaders resigning, etc.)
Polls close at 9PM EST, so maybe you can catch the results after the first game is over.
Try and have a happy election night -- especially to any of you political folks who might be gathering as usual at Joe Maggiano's Restaurant in north Toronto. (At least I'm assuming it'll be the same crowd gathering there as in previous years. Maybe they'll just go home instead.)
