Boo hoo. Another loss. Canucks 2 Boston 5

Game 7 and the deciding game for the Stanley Cup is Wednesday night back in Vancouver. We have home ice advantage so hopefully it will help. The ice in Boston is lousy and a lot of players keep falling. The puck doesn't glide like it should because of the mushy texture of the ice. They had the same problem last time in Boston, too. (both teams)

So...Wednesday night 5pm pacific time. Stanley Cup final game.

Go
Canucks Go

Jammer om te hoor, on your non understanding.

I am only helping out here, you guys talk about it being cold and playing on ice and stuff. I thought I would knit you a scarf while I watched the soapie play out.

Did you hear about the blond polar bear that got caught in a trap, chewed of 3 legs and was still stuck.

Well, the Canucks came second place to the Boston Bruins. :cry: :(

I am still very proud of the team though. The Canucks made it all the way through the whole season and to the final game of the Stanley Cup playoff. They had a good team, but lost some key players to injuries.

There is always next year....... :mrgreen:

I'm embarrased to say I was born in GVRD. It's times like this I know why I will never live there again. Surely, that crowd cannot be called "Canadians"???

Those people were not fans. They probably did not even live in the city. They had trouble on their mind before they went there. The morons who started the riot will get caught. The CBC has their studio right where the rioters started making trouble and the whole thing has been filmed. Also, there were lots of people with their personal cameras taking shots and they gave them to the police.

We Vancouverites are not like that. This was the twisted mind work of a few.

Apparently one young gentleman was photographed stuffing his shirt into a gas tank to light a cop car on fire. He later posed for a picture, someone posted his graduation picture and he's from Calgary, with a water polo scholarship to the U of C and an Olympic hopeful.... Not anymore...

You are more than likely correct (and I don't doubt you) but it seriously looks bad for Vancouver on the world stage. When people first heard about it they didn't know who did it, but they do associate it with Vancouver. Black marks like that never go away, regardless of who gets caught in the end. It's a bloody shame, Vancouver is a beautiful city full of wonderful people. It's a shame to see it in the media this way.

OK, doilies are finished, I will put my pinny on and make cheesecake. Just don't tell Sunshine, coz she is mean to me and wants me to leave. I will let you know when it's ready. Did I tell you I have to sell my project bike.

I need comfort food.
