It’s Game Night in Vancouver!

I have been watching hockey since I can remember. Probably since the Canucks entered the NHL. When I was a kid I use to hang out at the visiting team’s hotel – the Vancouver Hotel – and ask for autographs from the players. I have pictures taken with Guy Lafluer and Steve Shutt, from the Habs, for example. I watch all the Canucks games; regular season and playoffs. However, I am more religious about not missing a playoff game. For the playoffs my daughter convinced me to create a Canucks “shrine” in our family room. We have a “Go Canucks Go” CBC poster in the living room window and the big Canucks flag in the entry. I’ve been know to drive around town pre and post playoff game with the flag in our SUV or in my convertible. My son and I watch regular and playoff games. We got tickets and watched game 2 of the Sharks’ series when the Canucks won 7 – 2. My wife and daughter join in the excitement of playoff games and watch all the games on TV.
