Wednesday, May 4th

We're still not looking much better than this -- come on Spring!

It’s a windy day in Bon Accord.  Actually, in all of Alberta.  It is Spring-time, after all.

Today, though, we will have some sunshine.  Yesterday was gray and cloudy and rainy for half the day.  By suppertime the sun had decided to come out.  I wish I had the time to get out and work in the garden.  Hopefully, this weekend, though Heather tells me that rain is forecast.

The Canucks managed to beat Nashville last night — in OT, again.  These OT games are really beginning to wear on me.  I wouldn’t say last night’s game was a thriller, in fact it mostly dragged along.  Pekke Rinne was fantabulous in goal, as was Luongo, (when the puck was in Vancouver’s end); this is seriously going to be a goalie’s series.  I kept hoping and hoping that the Sedin boys would show some magic, but alas, no.  Kessler managed a goal and an assist — that was a long time coming and extremely well deserved.

I did not know a thing about the Canucks going into these playoffs, but I have to say I am really enjoying watching them play.  They’ve got a lot of heart, and some very talented, disciplined players.  For me, it remains mainly a Canadian pride thing — I want a home team in the playoffs, and ultimately to win the SC.  It doesn’t matter that most of the players on the American teams hail from Canada, it matters that they’re playing for US. (that’s us as in us Canadians.)  So. . .

anyway, Go Canucks!

    1. It sure is! Played indoors, of course. In Nashville, they had to install dozens of expensive special ventilators in the ceiling of the arena to help keep the ice cold and solid — it’s quite warm in Nashville at the moment.
