Well looks like I'll be vetoing that one for the move, too.

There honestly isn't a huge distinction between Loserpeg (I'm from Saskatchewan; I'm obliged to say that) and Minneapolis. If you hate Winnipeg, you'd probably hate spending the night on Spiff's couch. Winnipeg does have the distinction of having a French flavour to it, tho, dating back to the mid-19th c.

But there's more: the French component is predominantly Metis (those of aboriginal-European ancestry). The missuz is Metis, tho her European forebears are Scottish, which has encouraged any number of jokes made by me about which side in her background is more savage (answer: Team Haggis).

When I was a kid we would pour water over the road at night so it would freeze. We would then play ice hockey on it in the morning although no one had ice skates or ice hockey sticks. The only thing we did have was a genuine puck that one of mates brought back from a holiday with family in Canada.

If you didn't have sticks, I don't think you played hockey.

We had normal hockey sticks and a few homemade ones.

Like field hockey sticks? Okay, close enough for government work.

Yep but the old fashion long ones not like the ones they use now with the short curved end (none of us actually played hockey we pinched them off older sisters etc..)

I don't remember anyone playing field hockey in Saskatchewan—which is odd, actually, given how big ice hockey is—but floor hockey was big in school. Same as regular hockey but in running shoes and plastic sticks and puck. Preferable for us dorks who couldn't skate worth a damn.
