This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition , 2017 edition and 2018 edition.

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

Ha. I actually forgot they were playing tonight.
I think it will go to Game 7, unfortunately.

Oh right ha!

I want STL to win but I have a feeling BOS will again persevere (plus home ice but that hasn't proven anything). I can't stand them.

I predict the Jays will lose to Baltimore tonight as they battle their way down to the sub-sub-sub basement of the league.

A colleague in Europe who knows nothing about it says Raps will win by 20 tomorrow.

I mention this because the same guy said US would best Thailand 10-0 yesterday. And that was the score, for about 2 minutes.

Ok, but your colleague knows something about footy, right?

Weather for the weekend looks like crap. I might need to stock up on scotch and Kit Kats to get through it.
