Oh, Canada

I was watching Game Four of the Stanley Cup Finals the other night and saw the singing of the Canadian National Anthem. I have always liked the Canadian Anthem, right behind the Star Spangeled Banner, of course. But Edmonton had a cool version that I had not heard before.
I found video on You Tube of an earlier playoff game and decided to share with those that had not seen it. It's pretty impressive if you ask me.

My Favorites

I was reading around online and stumbled on some Top Ten lists that some people had put together. After glancing through them I thought that is a great topic to blog on. The thing is that when I sat down and started listing things that I wanted to touch on I realized that it was probably a big list. So I came up with the idea that I am going to list some of my Top 5's. Also if I do a Top 5 list I can keep David Letterman off my back.

Some may have more than 5 but we can cross those bridges when we get there. And this could turn into more posts down the road which again is a good thing for everybody. I did not really rank any of these so don't think I preferred one better than the others. And it's my list so deal with it.
