What's happening here in Toronto

All about Canadian Ice hocky, Curling and American Football !!

Ice Hockey - This is the goalie of the Maple Leafs of Toronto


American Football

This was a very exciting weekend, with the Superbowl on Sunday evening. When you move to Canada or if you live here already, to really integrate with your Canadian co-workers and friends, you have to learn something about the games that are played here. Mainly Ice hockey, Curling and American Football

For Canadian Ice Hockey you can check out this website that will give you more information on the teams and the league. (The National Hockey League) (The Maple Leafs is the name of the Toronto hockey team)

For Curling: - This is a game played on ice in which heavy stones with handles are slid toward a target. This game is also played during the Winter Olympics.

Superbowl: In professional American football, the Super Bowl is the championship game of the National Football League (NFL).

Yesterday was the Superbowl for the year 2010 played in Miami, Florida in the United States.

The two teams that played the finals were the Saints of New Orleans and the Colts of Indianapolis. The Saints won the game which was great for the state that got hit by the massive hurricane Katrina a few years ago, and deserved something worth celebrating after so much devastation.

This will give you a head start on learning about these games, the teams and the main players.

My next post will be on the Winter Olympics starting on Feb 12th in Vancouver!!!

Have a good week!!
