Bulldogs off to Scotland for exhibitions

Bugs Bunny gets scientific against his impatient Scottish opponent, McCrory.

The Hamilton Bulldogs, the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, will participate in the Gardiner Cup, a four-team exhibition tournament, in late September in Edinburgh, Scotland.

And in posting this, with the U.S. Open on tap next week, all I could think of was the classic 1948 Bugs Bunny cartoon My Bunny Lies Over The Sea.

It’s brilliant – Bugs plays a less-than-by-the-rules match of golf against McCrory, who has instructed his badly navigated opponent that "there are no La Brea Tar Pits in Scotland." What the heck. Here it is on YouTube.
