I'm, generally pretty adept at picking up on time zones and time differences from place to place in the world. But, it doesn't help anyone trying to keep up with the Winter Olympics in South Korea when the scheduling was, obviously, done by the same screwed up computers that does the N-H-L and Western Hockey League skeds! There was two days of Mixed Doubles Curling completed before the Opening Ceremonies were held. And, the Mixed Doubles Curling medals will be handed out before the first men's hockey game is played! How can that be?!
Almost to a man, Blades players were unanimous in saying that the Prince Albert Raiders are their biggest rivals. That was the thinking, as well, on Twitter when I asked the question yesterday. But, those are focused players and hardcore fans who are basing their answers off the current W-H-L standings as Saskatoon and P-A are locked in a battle for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot!
I still believe that, if you asked random, casual junior hockey fans on the street in Saskatoon who the Blades' biggest rival is...the answer would be Regina ahead of Prince Albert, due to city size and length of rivalry...dating well back of when the "Johnny-come-lately" Raiders came on the scene!
