This brother and sister were ahead of us. They have different owners but double teamed Santa this year for old times sake. Only appearing online because of a tight paper the next day, I hope it puts a smile on your face as big as mine.

    The NHL is back!

    The atmosphere in Winnipeg built to a fever pitch this weekend until exactly 4:20 p.m. when a new era of professional hockey began. Jets Bryan Little and Montreal Canadiens Tomas Plekanec took the opening draw of the 2011-12 NHL season before a boisterous standing-room only crowd at the MTS Centre. Stage fright and opposing snipers shot down the Winnipeg Jets in their home-opener and the Jets gave up three third-period goals and simply couldn't catch up, eventually losing 5-1.
