Bardford BS: Hockey's back...Are ya happy about it? (657* d) RE: BS: Hockey's back...Are ya happy about it? 09 Nov 05

In the hockey meets music department - played a hotel pub gig Saturday night. TV's on - CFL football (BC/Saskatchewan) on the big screen near us; Flames/Canucks on HNIC (Hockey Night in Canada)on the small TV over there in the corner.

Pub attendees innattentive to the musical ministrations.

Question - in this environment, is it okay for me to ask the guitar player/lead singer/band leader dude (Rider's fan) to trade places so I can be closer to the hockey game? Bear in mind this is in Calgary. Nationally televised non-Leaf game, a rarity.

The Canucks must have been staying at the hotel we were playing in, as the bus unloaded them in front. Players traipsed off (sullen, deflated, dejected, morose) to a restaurant, and then coaching staff - Marc Crawford, Stan Smyl, others - came into the bar and had a few pops and enjoyed some fine folk music.

I didn't ask for autographs, nor did they.
