When was the last time a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup, huh?
How many Canadians play for those American teams eh!? Steve..I used to love Black Ice..I thought it was Carling though? I bought a six pack of 950ml for a good time!
Good point. There's more Canadian players than from any other country. I think US players is somewhere around 25%, or it was a few years back.
I don't think I've had Carling. We had regular Labatt's and the Blue, so when we'd go across to "Jade Garden" or wherever, we'd always try to sneak some Black Ice back hoping the border Gestapo wouldn't look in the trunk. The hassle was usually going in, not leaving.

In 1799 Robert Louis(France) was granted a patent for his invention of the Fourdrinier that made a continuous sheet(roll) of paper. Due to the French Revolution and disputes with his partners the machine was further developed and patented in England just a few years later.
This machine apparently saved a considerable amount of labor and time, and initial applications were expected to be the production of wallpaper. The paper was still cut by hand once the rolls were produced.
We've now got ink and mass produced paper. Would comic books be far behind?

"Indecency" by Isaac Cruikshank, published in 1799. A Scottish artist (Living in London) known for his social and political satire and considered a top caricaturist of his day. The British Museum in London houses the largest collection of his work. A known heavy drinker, he illustrated a temperance pamphlet ("The Bottle") that was claimed to have sold 75,000 copies in a single day with publishers buying copies to distribute also in the U.S. and Australia. The popularity of the pamphlet helped to push England's Temperance movement forward politically and socially. The pamphlet was turned into both a novel and stage melodrama complete with a musical score and with his art being transferred to glass slides and being shown to audiences during the performances. He is reported to have died of alcohol poisoning following a drinking contest at the age of 55.
