Announcer: "...Canada lost the World Juniors semifinal to Russia..."
Me: "[gut-punch-like "Ohhh" sound]"
Announcer: "...front-runner of the Iowa caucus is Mit Romney..."
Me: "[gut-punch-like "Ohhh" sound]...which one is that again?"
As an aside, kudos to Edmonton for not going all smashy-smashy, stabby-stabby over the hockey loss. In the Fail Safe-like future I envision for us, when we have to decide which of our cities to sacrifice for the greater good, I think this will count in Edmonton's favour. Sorry, Vancouver.
