...and are taking a ride with Canucks pride!
What a game! What a goal! What a win!
When in Vancouver - do as Vancouverites do! As soon as round one of the Stanley Cup playoffs began we followed the lead of our friends and neighbors here in the lower mainland and jumped on the Canucks bandwagon with vigour. We got our shirts and wear them with pride on every game day. Ellie can yell "Luuuuuuuuuuuuu" with the best of them every time Luongo makes a save. Hannah had to leave the room tonight after the Jonathan Toews goal - the tension was just too much.
I have to say - I get it. I get why a city wants an NHL franchise.
I get why Winnipeg needs the Winnipeg Jets back.
It's been amazing to see the entire city go crazy together for the Canucks. It draws the population together like nothing else can. It's a unifying force that creates community and enthusiasm. As I'm typing this I'm hearing horns honking in celebration on the street right next to ours.
And maybe - just maybe - we'll get to cheer for the Winnipeg Jets as a family in the not too distant future.
Until then, GO CANUCKS!
