On Wednesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs actually invited their long-suffering fans to "Watch Paint Dry Live" as a crew painted the ice at Air Canada Centre during a live stream on their website.
From the country that brought you the sport of curling, comes the next most riveting activity on ice that requires a brush or a broom.
Everyone knows winter starts sometime around August up north — and Canadians need a hobby to fill those cold and restless days — but watching paint dry on your computer sounds like it needs the fortification of a couple six-packs of Labatt's.
Luckily now you can watch the paint dry in time lapse with a dramatic soundtrack but nothing compares to seeing it live.
Sadly, with an NHL lockout looming, this could end up being the most thrilling hockey video of the NHL season.
