Hockey Night in Canada: Special Edition

hnic


Top guys in Kremlin seem be the happiest in the world in these days.


They go from one ecstatic celebration to another.


First, they claim to get their best buddy elected to the White House.


On my watch, I’ve never seen Russians so involved in the U.S. elections. It looks almost comical with all these champagne parties and TV specials on Russian broadcast networks.


Now, with Sergey Makarov inducted into the HHOF in Canada, perhaps, it’s time for the Hockey Night in Canada: Special Edition on the Canadian broadcast network.


Nah, just being sarcastic – better they be happy than angry, right?
