    Oldest hockey stick

    When he bought an ancient stick with a curved blade for $1,000 in 2008 from a barber in North Sydney, N.S., Mark Presley had no idea he’d acquired the world’s oldest hockey stick.

    The museum announced Friday it had acquired the ‘Moffatt stick’ from Presley for $300,000. Research has established that a member of the Moffatt family handcrafted it from a single piece of sugar maple between 1835 and 1838 in Cape Breton...

    Please tell me my tax dollars didn't partially fund the purchase of a $300,000 hockey stick that wasn't made of solid gold.

    I can't help but wonder what these libtards would do if they didn't have other people's money to spend.
