Twinkies and the Stanley Cup
Oddly, neither of us previously had any great interest in hockey or in those particular teams. It is quite likely that neither of us even knew until that moment just who was in that playoff season at all.
But like most Canadian kids of a certain age, I had a pretty good acquaintance with NHL hockey. In those days, the CBC was the only television channel in Canada. And every Saturday night we watched the CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, literally the only game in town - at least in TV land. It wasn't really that much of a stretch for two young girls to fall in love with a hockey game.
