Through the Opera Glasses - 49 - Shaun Majumder Called the Olympic Hockey Victory Back in November













Shaun Majumder from This Hour Has 22 Minutes - a Canadian current affairs and political satire program modelled after a news broadcast - which preceded Jon Stewart's similar The Daily Show by three years - caught up with hockey phenom Sidney Crosby back in November when Crosby was in Halifax to carry the Olympic torch.

Canadian politicians and celebrities know the cast of 22 Minutes can ambush them at any moment. So when Crosby recognizes Shaun Majumder, you can see he's preparing himself for anything.

What he gets is an amazingly accurate prediction for how the Olympics will turn out for him.



Janet says Fabulous, Julia. Thanks for posting that - my laugh for the morning. Talk about a prediciton!

Travis says It was truly a magic moment in the growing legend of Sidney Crosby.

Fabulous, Julia. We don't get CBC out here on our rabbit ears (yeah, no cable), but whenever I get a chance I watch 22 Minutes (loved it from it's very first show when we did get CBC). Thanks for posting that - my laugh for the morning.

Talk about a prediciton!

It was truly a magic moment in the growing legend of Sidney Crosby. Even though he beat my USA team, I can't dislike the kid. He just seems like a genuinely nice guy.

Congrats again on the big win!
