Weird Suggestion From An Old Hockey Writer
Basketball fans in Canada always get this occasional ' basketball bashing ' . One time a popular Canadian writer put the number of Raptors fans at 20,000 or something as if they are minimal and they don't matter . This was at the height of the team's popularity when the Vince Carter led Raptors battled the 76ers to a 7 game playoff . These old hockey writers cannot accept anything besides their Maple Leafs . They seem to live in a time warp when there is nothing on TV , radio and sports talk show but hockey .Well , I've got news for these dinosaurs. Basketball is now as popular as hockey amongst the Canadian youth of today . That's the demographic that the advertisers cater to . Al 'Sipowich' Strachan should stick to hockey related topics in his writings .
Naismith : Al , it's now year 2006 .
