OK, I just whooped for joy and woke up my two ladies, but really… who wouldn’t?
The Vancouver Canucks, the NHL hockey team I’ve been following for so long, no player on the ice was even born when I went to their first league game in 1970, had just scored to win in Game 7 in sudden-death overtime.
That after blowing a three-game lead in the series.
And after blowing a 1-0 lead in the final two minutes of the game.
So after getting up at 4 in the morning to quietly, ever so quietly steal away into the dark reaches of the Internet to capture a live stream and watch – with headphones on – one of the most exciting games I’ve ever seen, well…
Sorry ladies. I’m sure I’ll hear about it from the rest of the neighbourhood sooner or later.
