FIVE HOLE FOR FOOD

Angela MacIsaac gave us her phone number. And ya'll thought our call on the sidebar for lady's numbers wouldn't pan out.

Huh? Yes, it is that time of year again when the 'Five Hole For Food' crew rolls into town to play some street hockey and raise some food stock for the Calgary Interfaith Foodbank.

Five Hole For Food is an initiative spearheaded by a Canucks fan, which is highly appropriate, because this year the Five Hole For Food street hockey game is going to be played in front of the newly christened 'Canucks Central', downtown at a location formerly known as 'Flames Central'.

When: Tuesday, July 5th, from 12 noon until 6 PM. Uhh, what? Do Canuck fans not have jobs? Must be nice.

Where: Canucks Central.

Special Attractions: HARVEY THE FREAKIN HOUND, MOTHERFUCKERS! Also, assorted (probably minor tier) Flames. Maybe. Plus a hockey game! If the Domebeer-aholics bring their sticks down, they can play. (Elbows up, Domebeer-aholics. You will be playing against Canuck fans. Watch your fingers.)

Now this is really funny. As we said, the thing is being organized by a Canuck fan. Guess where they are holding the post game shindig?

Boston Pizza (17th ave location)!

Honestly. And they wonder why the rest of the hockey world treats them with such disdain.

But the quirks of Canuck fans aside, this is a good cause, you should go out (if you can) to support it. All they want is if you come down, bring some foodstuffs (like canned foods) for the food bank. They take donations too, but we are wary of giving cash*, so we would go with the straight food donation.

If you can't make it out to the game because you have to work, or indifference, or whatever, you can always drop off food at the food bank proper itself.

*Nothing against Mr. Loat or the food bank, but just a general rule we have when it comes to not-for-profits in general. Very lax accounting rules with those things.

Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
