Being a Chicagoan, and Knowing O'Hare, there are many lounges...but I'm going to guess the meetin, like the flights, are going to be delayed

Linden is not from Quebec, therefor, no Blue for him.

Edit: To be honest, I don't actually know where he's from...for all I know he might be from Quebec...lol

I thought Molson was from Montreal and Labatt from Ontario?

Do you have a link to a media writer who said Harley is soft? I can tell you this: By the time the meeting is over Linden will think he's a basketball player...Harley is very very slick and anything but soft!

Not sure of the origins, however I do know that the majority of the Blue drinkers I know, are indeed French Canadians...I'm sorry for the generalization...

Where'd you get my picture?


Didn't they say at some point that the meeting would last for 11 hours of heavy negociation? That would definitely rule out a meeting early this morning.
Holding it in the airport seems to say they want to get away from it as soon as possible, I don't think that's encouraging.
