During the intro to HNIC on CBC, they say something to the effect of "hello to hockey fans across Canada, the United States and Newfoundland" Why to they mention Newfoundland as a separate entity? Are they doing that to spite Red Wings' superstar, Dan Cleary? WTF? I demand answers. Mark

Mark1, that is the voice of Foster Hewitt, the legendary Canadian broadcaster. Hewitt started doing play by play for the CBC back in 1936 and Newfoundland didn't join confederation until 1949.

Steamy stop trolling.. It's because Newfoundland is a mythical place that nobody has ever been to. Where they speak a different language, drink gasoline, and eat sea-bugs whole.

I knew it was a pretty simple process, but I didn't know it was THAT easy. Maybe because I am a white guy. If I was a brown, third-worlder, they would have just waved me past and said, "Congrats, you're a Canadian now!" Mark
