This Is What We Live For

Memo to the rest of the world – as of 5 pm PST, Vancouver is closed.

We will all be glued to our TV sets, because the Vancouver Canucks will be playing the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals!!!!

I’ve got my team gear out and ready to go.

Some of it from their last appearance in the finals – it was 1994, and I was in grade 9. You can all do the math to figure out how old I am now.

We made it all the way to game 7. It was epic, but unfortunately, we did not prevail. But this year…things are different. This is our year.

In case you doubt the importance of this event, check out the newspapers – “56 Pages of Stanley Cup Action”. It’s a pretty big deal.

Game day eats even make the news.

Countless songs, parodies, and music videos have been made by fans.

 

 

So you’ll have to excuse me, as I’m off to find a comfy spot in front of the TV to watch history be made. Game on!
