After being so nice to Canucks fans, telling them how good
their team looks, how I hope their boys win it all, suddenly I want the series
to go seven games and have the Stanley Cup fall out of the plane into Okanagan
Lake where it’s swallowed up by Ogopogo, only to be regurgitated next spring by
the big fellow when the Habs make their run.
I’m just not ready after the latest development.
We already have whining, sniveling, insufferable Bruins fans
complaining that Alex Burrows should have been suspended for biting a finger
and shouldn’t have been around to score the winning goal in game two. But of
course, long erased from Bruin fans minds is the Zdeno Chara mugging, the
Andrew Ference finger, and the Nathan Horton scuffle with a fan.
On the other side, I asked a guy at work, a huge Canucks fan
and real nice guy, if fans are going to be bearable in the coming year if
Vancouver wins the Cup. “We’ll be fine, not like Habs fans,” was his
Enjoy your metal lunch, Ogopogo.
