Actually, while tomorrow is technically called Canada Day....Canadians celebrate it as Free Agent Frenzy day.

NHL free agency starts noon EST tomorrow. It's a national event, with live coverage on all TVs.

We didn't used to get the day off until Free Agent Frenzy (FAF day) became so big. Productivity dropped to nothing as Canadians everywhere huddled around radios and televisions and iphones, so it's a national holiday.

Let it be known that we are having a very festive Canada Day party. We actually have live Canadians attending this year. Bar is stocked with crappy beer, mussels have been purchased, salmon is curing and the Royal Canadian Mountie whiskey bottles have been retrieved from the basement. Let me know if you'll be attending.

The best part of Canada Day is the statutory rape.
