Hockey Historians Make New Discovery

According to a Faceoff.com article that was given to them off the European waver wire (kind of like the associated press briefs that American journalists get), the IIHF [International Ice Hockey Federation] based in the notoriously neutral country of Switzerland has determined through research that the Victoria rink in Montreal is the birthplace of Hockey.

People in Toronto are already pissed as they take their Hockey seriously. A response to the article by a reader of faceoff.com asked
"Oh, my God! What will Bob Cole and Harry Neale do now? Toronto isn't the birthplace of hockey? HNIC [Hockey Night in Canada] will be crushed to hear this and somehow rewrite history to prove otherwise."
Regardless of where it was first played, thanks, Canada, you've given the world a great game!
