The Stanley Cup
Today is the first game of the final of the Stanley Cup....it's the Vancouver Canucks vs Boston Bruins. Now for those of you who haven't a scooby of what I'm talking about it can only be one the ICE HOCKEY!!! When I was home the Canucks (my home team of course) were working their way through Nashville Predators then San Jose Sharks. At first I wasn't all that interested but it wasn't long before I was shouting and cheering (though not as much as The Judy!!)...I'd forgotten how exciting hockey can be. It's such a fast and physical game and how some of the players manage to get up after being slammed into the boards is a miracle! When I was growing up I actually loved Boston because of a player called Bobby Orr...I thought he was absolutely gorgeous lol.
This will be the 3rd attempt by the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup and let's hope it's third time lucky!! I had an email last night from a lovely lady, Celia, who I met at Precious Memories when I was demonstrating, telling me that the pizza chain Boston Pizza have changed their name to Vancouver Pizza for the game!!! Even DLS has cancelled her 5 o'clock appointments over the final series so she can watch the games...I think the streets of Vancouver will be deserted tonight lol. I found the game on ESPN tomorrow so although I'll probably know the score I'll watch it anyway.
Quite a bit of this goes on...it's almost like dancing on ice lol.
The game starts at 1 am Thursday our time and I'm sure I'll be too excited to sleep...best of luck boys!!
Catch ya later x
