Hey honey! Let's go eat Canadian tonight...

Ummmm, Donuts...

I've been watching this Tim Horton's commerical on Center Ice broadcasts that shows a Clint Eastwood-looking guy talking about his southwest chicken sandwich. Once the schtick is over and they start pitching the lunch, it turns out to be a spicy southwest chicken sandwich, a cup of coffee and a donut. How the hell do you combine, "...sautéed vegetables, Monterey Jack cheese and zesty sauce on a toasted focaccia bun," with a donut and call it lunch? What graduate of the Kamloops Culinary Academy ginned up the idea that you should follow spicy cayanne pepper seasoning or chipoltle sauce with a maple glazed crueller?

I'll bet your 'burg doesn't have any great Canadian food restaurants. Now you know why.

Counterpoint:
Maybe we shouldn't point the finger at Canadian management for this one. Horton's is part of the Wendy's operation. They are the ones who randomly combine incredients every six months or so, put it on a bun and call it their new taste sensation. Like their new Junior Smoky Cheddar burger. Now if I could just get it to go with a donut...

OBTW: My Team USA prediction (hope) prior to Torino:
Hatcher and Chelly go down with the gout, prostate problems, erectile disfunction, or some other old-guy ailment and Hedican and Martin or Mara step in.

USA would be lucky if your hope came true. Chelios has tons of PIMS, perhaps because he's too slow. (It ain't 5-minute majors.) BTW, I predicted Mara and Martin on the team, not Chelios and Hatcher.

I now watch a lot of Coyotes, Ducks, Kings games living here in Az. I like both Mara and Keith Ballard of Phx and Gleason and Corvo of the Kings. Right now, I'd pick any combo with Martin over Chelly and Hatcher. Thanks for piping in!
