Hockey Season returns and Manitobans everywhere will be cheering on their two favourite teams! Sports is a great way to connect with family and friends. Whether you’re going to a game together or just hanging out on the sofa, many families make great connections and memories while watching sports. A great thing to keep in mind is with so many of the games available online, you don’t even have to be home to watch, or listen to the game together. Phone home and stay connected to your loved ones with your shared love of the game.
