(Video) Here’s Noted Canadian Musician Neil Young Rocking A Winnipeg Jets Jersey

Keep on rockin’ in the free world, Neil. With the NHL season almost upon us — finally! — it’s time to dig out the jerseys of our favorite teams and get amped. Amped, get it?

I don’t know who Neil is talking to, but apparently, he’s in the market for some Winnipeg Jets season tickets. I love how at the end of the video he says, “Who am I gonna root for? the Sharks or the Jets? Go Jets!” As if someone as cool — and Canadian — as Neil Young would ever dream of cheering on a team based in San Jose, California.

But perhaps the strangest part of seeing Neil Young wearing a Winnipeg Jets sweater is that Young was actually born in Toronto, Ontario, not Winnipeg, Manitoba. But then again, who would want to root for the Maple Leafs? Isn’t that right, Maple Leafs fans? You guys know what I’m talking about.
