Re: The eternal question..

Hmm, that's what I figured it meant (and yes, we call them handles, or half-gallons). I just thought that everything up there was measured with the metric system (milliliters or liters). Good point, most things are in metric. I'd guess that the nicknames for bottles predate the switch over to metri...

Re: Go Redwings, win the Cup back!

Philly did great, but I was happy to see a former London Knight, Pat Kane, who I spent a couple of years cheering for win the cup. Sadly Brian Campbell gives Strathroy yet another cup winner. Now Toronto is the only O6 team not to win a cup post expansion

Yeah, I'm pretty happy with the east whichever way it turns out, might be better for the city of Montreal if the habs don't make it.
