Off-Day Outtakes: Canada Day!

On July 1, 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain and a federation of four provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec. The anniversary was originally known as Dominion Day, but the name was officially changed in 1983 to Canada Day.

We have 100% Canadian Content on this off-day (the day after Canada Day).

I'm going to do my best with the inadequate USA ingredients available to make poitine for supper in honor of Canada. POGG!

Amy said...

I love Neil Young---can't wait to listen to these! Thanks.

Dylan said...

What? Jason Bay and Mark Loretta get no mention? They are from Canada!

Zenslinger said...

No Bryan Adams?

fusionmouse said...

Hey JoS... no comment yet about Jason Bay becoming a US citizen today? We're glad to have him! ;-)

laura k said...

Mark Loretta is not Canadian.

Jason Bay, yes.
Matt Stairs, yes.
Eric Gagne, yes.
Justin Morneau, yes.

Mark Loretta, no.

laura k said...

Nice post, except for the Lightfoot. But man, is HE ever Canadian!

allan said...

What, no love for the 'Foot?


I have no idea if he's called "the foot".


Seems unlikely.


No Bryan Adams?

I'll have four days of him over the ASB.

allan said...

After the All-Star break, there are only six off-days until the playoffs!

There were 10 before the break.

laura k said...

OK, I just got the "joke" about Mark Loretta. Major eye rolling.

Pepe Lepew said...

What, no Band?

Pepe Lepew said...

Jason Bay, yes.
Matt Stairs, yes.
Eric Gagne, yes.
Justin Morneau, yes.

And Ryan Dempster and Rich Harden.
I don't get the Mark Loretta joke, though.

Amy, if you wander back here. I found the McCartney cd I mentioned the other night. It was still in the car. It's called "Unplugged - the official bootleg". Part of that whole MTV series thingy. Recorded live in London in 91. As I mentioned before, a number of really good songs but also some same old same olds. A couple of nice covers. Not groundbreaking, but not bad at all.

allan said...

What, no Band?

I *love* The Band, but the remastered versions of their CDs include many outtakes and I don't know what is now official and what is not.

Check back on November 26, however!

tim said...

The hip...cool!

laura k said...

Pepe, I am a huge fan of The Band too. The brown album is one of my favourite albums ever ever ever.

"I don't get the Mark Loretta joke, though."

He went to high school in a town called La CaƱada, California. Obviously, it's not pronounced Canada and has nothing to do with Canada.
