    Here's your view. Even with a chainsaw, you have Tufts powerplant, and the naval yars.

    True. When was the last time you were able to see outside of a stadium?

    Call me when they're bringing an NHL team to Halifax that I'll get behind.

    The worst part of leaving Edmonton for us is probably going to be the Oilers. It's pretty awesome being in an NHL city

    they've only had the one home game this year, but I heard it was very lack luster. No Bobby Mac getting the crowd fired up.

    Zurawski saying its not a great spot because basically in 50+ years, it'll probably be under water due to rising tides.

    Sounds like a potential Summer Olympics bid. Could be a pretty big salt water pool eventually.

    "Analysis of historical sea-level rise, showing that water levels relative to the land have risen by 32 centimetres (cm) over the last century, a combination of land subsidence (-16 cm) and local sea-level rise (16 cm). The figures were derived from the Halifax tide gauge (since 1920) and crustal vertical motion GPS data (since 2002)."

    god i cant wait to vote him out

    Well to be an ass, you could infer that with the greater increases in avg global and ocean temps, the amount of rise of water levels would/could increase exponentially not in a linear fashion thus increasing the subsidence numbers faster as well therefore, it could be under water in 50 years :P /smartassedness :crazy:

    :lol:

    I think with the Mooseheads too, its more a family thing. Great for kids, heck you're basically watching kids play. Football seems to be a more adult sport. I can see a group of guys going to a football game more so than going to watch the Moose.

    Here's a couple things I don't understard, how people are saying that there's no support for the Mooseheads. Sure they don't sell out every game, but they have been here for 25 years successfully, and have been either 1st or 2nd in QMJHL attendance in every single one of those 25 years. While it's not putting 20k in a building, the support is there.

    Also, not sure why Bobby Mac quit going into this, their 25th year and a year where they host the Memorial Cup. They did have his replacement there for the home opener, BJ Burke from Q104 took the spot I guess, unless that was a one time thing.
