This Saturday, however, my wife and I will be in Vancouver with my brother and his wife to watch the Canucks take on the Stars. The tickets were a Christmas present from my dad, who is awesome**. Massive understatement: I’m excited. For those who frequently step into the confines of
GM Place Rogers Arena, it may be a bit more routine, but for me this is huge. I’m also fairly confident about the Canucks’ chances: they have outscored the Stars 15-3 in their 3 meetings this season. Even with a battered defense, I’ve got a good feeling.
To make things even better, that’s not the end of it: this Saturday ignites a fuse of awesome Canuck-ness set to explode when Harrison, myself, and our wives pack our bags for The Greatest Road Trip of All Time (TM). It starts with the game against the Stars, continues with Harrison’s much-ballyhooed Scrabble Battle against Tanner Glass (which I will be attending and intend to live-blog for everyone’s enjoyment), continues with the Canucks Superskills on the 27th, and climaxes with the road trip. It shall be glorious.
What can I say? I’m a fan. Look for stories, pictures, and other goodies in the coming weeks.
