Championships : weird schedule

Why the hell did they schedule the finals on Monday 11th ??
That's a very strange decision for such an event...

Correct me if I'm wrong but Americans don't actually give hockey that much time compared to the other big three.

SO leave hockey alone, blame it on the three LAME sports

We get a free day for Armistice anyway so that Monday is like a Sunday to us.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

I wasn't trying to pick a fight buster.
Its people like you that stick their hooter in to irritate people and cause petty arguments, when really it was not their place to say what they think of me or what they think i will end up doing.
Did i personally attack you? No, so please don't start, cause your attitude already annoys me.

And did i say i was forced to watch the final? Nope... so stop jumping to things which are just there for you to make a fight out of.
