Identify the rioters. Check out the VPD website. They may be your friend, but they may also be an idiot.
A photo, every day, all year. We’re into final weeks here with Andrea Woo.
Tonight my mother razzed me for not being a Canucks fan. She, like many others out here on the West Coast, doesn’t understand my passion and allegiance to the Oilers.
People say I’m greedy for wanting success for a team that may have been one of the most successful NHL franchises. But what most people don’t get is that I can barely remember the 1990 Stanley Cup win. In fact, my first NHL game was in 1991 against the San Jose Sharks. In 1994, I was a Canucks fan but that was short-lived. My NHL fandom has spanned 20 years. In the past two decades, the Oilers have been awful. Take out 2006 and they made it to the second round once. They have missed the playoffs more than they have made it.
But that’s my team. And they suck.
As the Canucks roll to what could be their first cup win tonight, I hope fans here relish the greatness they get to feel. I don’t know what that feels like. But I’m sure it is good. Talk to Oilers and Flames fans – the alternative outcome for a Game 7 is soul crushingly terrible. But enjoy it for what it is, and that’s YOUR success rather than the failure of MY team.
Because if I hear one more snide remark about how bad the Oilers are, I swear to God, I’ll punch someone in the face.
I know they are bad. You don’t have to remind me.
Few things are amusing me tonight, but a cardboard cutout of Gino Reda is one of them.
@loxyisme: I knew I wouldn’t be happy when the Canucks won. But I didn’t expect to be a boiling pot of pure rage. I’m so sad, I’m angry. #sangry
I knew the Canucks would pull it off, but not in such dramatic fashion. Another two more weeks of winter.
Andrea Woo is sooooo lucky to be in Mexico right now.
The Canucks are in the playoffs. This is what the Canucks sent our station. Was it a bribe? Were we not going to talk about the Canucks?

(Note: I realize it has been a long time since I’ve written. I’m not gone. I’m just not going to blog for the sake of blogging! Frankly, it’s been a good couple of months, which means I don’t have too much to complain about. P.S. Hawaii in 6 days. Booya suckas.)
I didn’t always hate the Canucks. In Edmonton, I tolerated them, even cheering for them during my childhood. But moving to Vancouver, that changed everything. Read the rest of this entry ?
