NICK EICHER, HOST: Maybe you’ve heard the old joke, I went to a boxing match and a hockey game broke out.
Well, here’s a real-life variation: I got stuck in a traffic jam and a hockey game broke out.
That’s exactly what happened when Highway 40, just east of Montréal, came to a standstill. The minutes turned to hours, because a 75-car pileup transformed the highway into a hockey rink.
So, what’s a Québecer to do? Well, obviously, you pop open your trunk, grab your sticks and pucks, start playing.
AUDIO: J’attend pour le shot, mais bon
That’s right… an impromptu hockey game on Canada’s Highway 40.
One Canadian Twitter user commented, “Of course, in Canada, everyone has an emergency stick and puck in their trunk.”
It’s The World and Everything in It.
