We beat the Blackhawks in overtime. That sentence barely encapsulates a cunthair of the jubilation that’s being felt in this city tonight.
So incredibly emosh right now. Best Game 7 (and most would agree, the best game in the 40 yr Canucks franchise) in as long as I can remember. When Burrows scored the game winner in OT, the entire Cambie Pub (packed like it hadn’t been since Olympic hockey) erupted in 30 straight minutes of mass euphoria, just like the moment Canada won Olympic hockey gold. (A lot of folks said this particular grudge match was almost like “City Olympics”). There’s a reason I keep saying it’s our year. It’s because it IS.
And everyone in Vancouver (including the team) knows it’s just going to get better. Never been more proud to be a Vancouverite.
And in case I forget to say this tomorrow, fuck you, Vince Vaughn.
When you go to the NHL store (link above) and click Canucks vs. Blackhawks, this is all you fucking get.
Between the refs giving Chicago ALL the power plays, to the patronizing sneers of so-called “friends” who think it’s “funny” that the deluded little Canadians think they actually stand a chance (at a game we fucking OWN), to brazen “fuck you”s like this one above which make it crystal clear that the money-grubbing shit-ass crooks running the NHL don’t want a non-American team anywhere near that Stanley Cup (I mean, we already have a 1000 acre park named after Lord Stanley, that’s how ready we are), I’m taking a Clonazepam RIGHT FUCKING NOW.
PS: Canuck Fans should direct complaints about that link here.
UPDATE: Because I am a shrill bitch prone to get up on her hind legs about certain shit, I have rather pointedly drawn their attention to this grievous and insulting error. We’ll see how quickly it gets fixed.
You know there are problems when the GM has to call out the refs.
Quick rant: The hit on Bieksa behind the net was worse than the Torres hit. The chicago player left his feet, directed his arms to the head, and took multiple strides. While Torres got a 5 min and a conduct (no strides, no leaving of the feet, etc etc), the chicago player didnt even get a penalty?
You tell em, Gillis. That reffing last night was BOGUS.
I was at a party where a guy showed up dressed like one of these guys (SPOILER: he was just some dude), and I was all “hey boy, heyyy” and immediately sat next to him. You guys might consider trying that if you come to Vancouver.
PS: Did I mention the Blackhawks will be playing their last game of the year on Thursday? Get those tee times lined-up, boys.
