This reminds me of a funny story in my local newspaper this morning:
"The number of babies born in the regional hospital has been rapidly increasing during May, June and July and has officials wondering if it has something to do with the NHL lockout. "There's no way to prove it, but it's just the right timing since the NHL was cancelled for the season" said Val Stewart, patient care manager in the maternal-child care ward"
They were averaging 60-80 babies a month, but starting nine months after the hockey lockout they were averaging over 100.
By the way, that is not why I am having a baby next month! My husband hates hockey, which makes him a very rare Canadian.
