I'm getting my house done up at the moment and me and the tiler got talking about hockey. It turned out his son played hockey here in Kirkcaldy so of course I said I was a frequent attender at the Fife Flyers ...........my local hockey team.

I went on to say that my real interest/love now was Vancouver Canucks in the NHL and it turned out my tiler also had a great interest in them and the Canucks. So we chatted a bit more and he told me his nephew lived in Vancouver and was responsible for a lot of the media filming for the Canucks organisation..........his name is Rory McGarry.

What are the chances that a Canucks fan living in a far away hockey backwater like Kirkcaldy in Scotland would just happen to employ a wall tiler (a damned good one too) who had such a strong connection with the Vancouver Canucks?

Small world.

Anyone out there knows Rory?...........tell him Ronnie says hi!

The Real war is not between the east and the west. The real war is between intelligent and stupid people.

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Reminds me of the following quote from Jurassic Park...

Yeah, but, John, if The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.

If they really wanted to scare the little kids Malcolm would have said It's a Small World instead of PotC. :lol:

My grandma as in Australia a few years ago and was talking to some Aussies when she mentioned that she was from Canada (she didn't mention a city or a province, she just said Canada).
They told her how they knew "so and so" from Canada and asked if she knew them too.
It turned out she and "so and so" lived on the same street in Victoria.
