What we read while letting go…

  • Sure, it was cool of Mikhail Prokhorov to handpick a blogger to sit down with for one of his first American interviews. But, we can’t help but feel a little spurned. I mean, Tim loves the Nets!
  • Our favorite Canadian magazine’s June cover story explores the shifting ownership of hockey and asks if Canada can really claim the NHL as its own after the league has expanded into the American sunbelt. It’s an interesting read on how the differences between how Canadians and Americans view hockey stand for the country’s larger distinctions: “Americans, on the other hand, do not need to worry about something as abstruse as the dignity of hockey. They may not have hockey in their DNA, as advertisers keep telling us we do, but this gives them the enormous advantage of being able to assess hockey without their view being obscured by the claptrap of national identity that so confounds the Canadian perspective.”
