‘SMILE’ for a dentally-challenged sport and nation

Amusingly for such a dentally-challenged sport as hockey, the team’s new name is “Smile Japan.”

    I’m just gearing up for my High Holy Day—April’s Fools.

    (My father played professional hockey—he and his hockey buddies used to scare the bejeezus out me when I was a toddler when they took out their dental appliances.)
