Last Thursday morning I was awakened by a voice with a slightly different accent reciting the score of every hockey game that had taken place in Canada the previous night. Clearly there are more hockey teams than gas stations in Canada. As usual the CBC announcer told me the major league baseball scores only from the games involving Montreal and Toronto, no others. There was one concession as the Barry Bonds watch was mentioned.
