They Don't Call Them The "Cardiac Canucks" For Nothing!

Shout out to my boys in blue!

I nearly had a heart attack watching tonight's game! It had been very frustrating to watch my boys lose the last two games, where they could have ended the series, but didn't, resulting in tonight winner-take-all matchup. Then it occurred to me what the problem was... my chocolate bar was cursed. Two games ago, I was watching the game with a bunch of friends at two of my friends's apartment and during the intermission between the third period and OT, a couple people decided to go to the store for snacks* and I got a big bar of dark Swiss chocolate. It was quite delicious, but certainly more than I could eat in one sitting. We lost that game in OT, and then we lost the next game. I had eaten some more of the chocolate bar over the past few days, but still had quite a bit left when this game started. I started to have an inkling that my chocolate bar might be cursed, preventing the Canucks from winning, but when Dallas scored first in tonight's game, I decided it was time to take action. I ate the rest of the bar. And shortly after finishing said bar, the Canucks scored. Did I ever mention that I'm supersititious?

Thanks to me devouring the cursed chocolate bar, the good guys prevailed and the bad guys... well, they got sent back to Dallas. Roberto made the big saves, the Sedins got their first points since Game 1, Trev got the game winner (and became the leading active player to score in game 7s) , my boyfriend sealed the deal with empty netter #1 and then Trev, being the upstanding guy that he is, passed the puck to Smoke to let him have empty netter #2 rather than taking it himself. I love my boys!! Tonight, I'm willing to have all their babies! And now it's off to Anaheim to kick some Duck!

Also, special thanks to the Red Wings for eliminating the despised Flames**. Flames, you are a team of dirtbags from a crappy city and your defeat brings me glee. That's right, glee!

Oh yes, and right here and right now, I'm calling a Canucks-Sens Stanley Cup this year! I know I call that at the beginning of every season, but this year I know that Roberto is going to lead us to the Cup!!

*we'd already had pizza and, after game 1, we had no idea how many periods of OT we were facing - we needed sustenance!
**please note, the Flames get no link love because I hate them.

Not to sound like stupid spam; But I belong to http://www.autosurfmonster.com community, if I were you I would submit this Blog and let thousands of others see it for free. I wish you warm regards and continued success.

Wow, spam that tells you it's not spam! How novel!

But Beth, she is Writing Blogs. How could someone who is Writing Blogs be a spammer?

Oh, and I love your hatred for the Albertan city. Too funny! I've known many to travel there and love it, but few have had the awful experiences you have had.

How's the tummy?

Ahh...Cowtown. Everyone I have talked to in Ottawa about my experience (mostly people originally from Montreal, Toronto, St. John's and a good number from Edmonton and Calgary itself) understand our disappointment with the city. Maybe it's because we didn't go for Stampede...
Go 'Nucks, go. Let's hope that they aren't too exhausted tonight.

Kelly - people had good experiences in Calgary? What did they do there? Or were they are just there at Stampede? I want to here even one story of someone enjoying Calgary during one of the 51 non-Stampede weeks.

Sarah - Canucks don't play tonight... tomorrow though and they probably will still be tired!
