Canadian hockey fans prepare for the olympics, by Bob Kreiger
Well today's the big game, and this work was too good to resist. Thanks to Bob Krieger who posted it on Arizans.com.
There is something so archetypally Canadian about this. We Canadians love turning our sacred national symbols into objects of humour. One of the most popular Canadian television shows, makes weekly sport of cutting our politicians off at the knees.
Today, its the big hockey game of the Winter Olympics...so significant event that it is staged as the finale on the last day. This time its a broadcaster's dream, Canada vs the USA.
Then, along comes Bob Krieger and delightfully presents this work of satirical comic art to celebrate the occasion. Bob has been drawing satirical cartoons for the Vancouver Province since 1981.
