Hockey Day in Canada

Thanks to Tiffy's largess, I went to my first ever Canucks game outside of GM Place. I will leave the sports writing to the professionals, but I will say that the final 6-1 score for the Canucks made for a very entertaining game to watch. At least a fourth of the spectators were Canucks fans, and that proportion increased to almost half the audience as dejected Leafs fans trickled out of the ACC in disgust after Salo's power play goal in the third period. When Naslund scored to make it 6-1 for the Nucks the ACC sounded like the Garage as the Canucks fans--by now a full two thirds of the crowd--started giving Raycroft the Bronx cheer without any rebuttal from the remaining Leafs supporters. Go Canucks go!

Your Favorite Jerk


The Canucks kid sitting two seats from us was the most annoying part of the night. If he were ten years older, I'm sure he would have been stomped by angry Leafs fans in the parking lot. Good natured jeering is fun, but sometimes you have to show some respect when you're in the opponent's building.
