We've been waiting for this all summer. NHL hockey is back!

And with the return of hockey comes a legitimate reason to rock your favourite jersey in public, daily. Wear it to work! Wear it to your cousin's little league game! Wear it to a wedding you're officiating!

But most importantly, wear it today. And also most importantly, take a picture of yourself in your jersey and tweet it @strombo (if your fingers are up to it, include @NHL, #NHLFaceOff and @CBCLive in your tweet). We're going to be re-tweeting those pics and posting the best of 'em right up here on the site.

For a little inspiration, look no further than the vid Neil Young sent us last night:

To follow along with all the NHL Face-off action, check out CBC Live's coverage all day long!
