Was looking forward to the Halloween containers but instead the store offers hockey crap. WG look at your calendar at least in the US the time for Halloween is October not November. For Sports in the US October is more geared for baseball with the World Series than hockey right now. One day WG you'll hear that popping noise.

You realize there's more than just the USA in North America correct?  I don't think there's very many baseball players with ties to Russia in MLB.

It's one day of the month, at the end.  There's still another 12 days....I'm sure they will have something next week.

Yes, hockey , much like soccer, is boring most of the time. Occassionally you get a moment of excitement but most of the time yawn. Of course that is just my opinion and others can disagree. Was kind of a joke re: the post I quoted is all.

Opinions on preferences, likes dislikes, etc... aren't facts and therefor can't be incorrect.

+ BEER!!!!!!.

Hockey is one of the best sports to watch, if you are at the arena.

After watching games in person, I no longer enjoy it on T.V.

I enjoyed hockey 40 years ago when I played it in youth leagues in Minnesota growing up. Now basically I don't care for sports unless it's a local league where they play for fun.

Russia is Orthodox, afaik they don't celebrate Halloween as a tradition. More as an excuse for parties.

When I was a kid hockey & crap were used interchangeably. A roll of toilet paper was referred to as a roll of hockey tickets.

Baseball is growing in Russia and there is a national team. Yes, it lacks far behind hockey & soccer in popularity & I doubt if it will challenge those two sports for the top spot in Russia.

Canada has a MLB team. Baseball is huge in almost all of North American. Check the nationalities of the MLB players and you will find many from Latin America countries.

Same thing here in the US. It's one night of Trick or Treating for the kids but a month long series of horror movies on TV and adult drinking/socializing parties.

Yeah, I too was hoping to grab some Halliween crates today. We have months to celebrate hockey, but a comparatively short time to indulge in spooky crap.

Right having these crates with say a Aleutian Island or Arctic Ocean campaign with it's own operation for PvE would have made sense. Instead of making sense lets just shoehorn it into a ongoing Halloween event that we spent money developing for our fanbase to have fun with a Halloween theme.

Canada is the sickening, horrifying red-haired stepchild of the British Empire that never embraced cricket. Of all the places to emigrate to from Australia, LOL. :Smile_teethhappy:

I guess it does have a Halloween tie-in. The more I look at Alexander Ovechkin he does look like the love child from Fritz and Ygor in the Frankenstein movies.

Not that I care either way on any US sports, but in the North East, and certainty the southern parts of Canada (and remember, this is a *NA* not a *US* server) Hockey is a big deal and in full swing. If I hear the word 'Sabers' one more time I swear to god...

Oh didn't know Canada no longer has baseball teams in the MLB.

RIP Blue Jays and Expos.
