So I live in Vancouver. The home of the Van City Canucks hockey team. A place where Vancouverites pile into restaurants and bars game after game hoping for that 40 year happy ending to come true. So will it come true? Will it go for another golden year? All I know is they sit and wait on the edge of their seats for the potential inevitable. The Stanley Cup to arrive home.
I have unfortunately left town for the final few games as I am on a rather interesting adventure in itself (to travel down the Mississippi river in the USA from Chicago to New Orleans on a road trip with my incredibly talented photographer friend Jeremy Beasley).
I miss Van City, and it's people, and it's infamous connection to hockey. I sit and I wait from a Memphis hotel room waiting for the result. Will the Canucks win in the city of Vancouver and be happy? Or will they lose and riot like they did in 1994? Time will tell how civil they will be about the situation. If they win, who gives a shit :)
In any case, I will give you a quick exhibition of the happiness and joy expressed in the Stanley Cup Playoffs when they won Game 2 in Vancouver. Take this Van City as inspiration for the hopeful win in Van City on game 7. Much love to all my good friends in Vancouver right now who are grinding their teeth every day in the hope that they will finally bring that glorious Stanley Cup home. The Silver is ours boys, Lets go kick some Boston Butt!!!
