Boston is a bad, banned word in British Columbia
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (AP) - Boston is quickly becoming a bad _ and banned _ word in British Columbia.
Not only did the Boston Pizza restaurant chain quickly change its name to Vancouver Pizza when the hometown Canucks drew the Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals last week, but an entire town has removed Beantown from its handle.
Even in such a tiny town, there’s a Tim Hortons restaurant down the road _ but you won’t be able to buy any Boston Creme doughnuts.
The beloved Canadian doughnut chain started by the former Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman of the same name is no longer selling products in B.C. with the name “Boston” in them.
Please enjoy a Vancouver Creme instead.
HALLO DEUTSCHLAND: Another German is about to get his name etched into the Stanley Cup.
“We talk a little during the season, and when it’s over, we try to go out for coffee after the games,” Ehrhoff said. “This time of year, though, we’re not really talking.”
The 28-year-old Ehrhoff and the 29-year-old Seidenberg have known each other since their days on a German under-18 national team. They’ve played together on three Olympic teams for Germany, even forming a defensive pairing in the Vancouver Games last year.
“We’ve played together since we’ve been 17, at all national tournaments,” Seidenberg said. “We get along well off the ice, but right now we don’t really talk.”
