Unlike the rest of the world, there are only 2 seasons in Canada: Waiting-for-hockey season and hockey season.
Tonight was opening night of the 09-10 NHL season and one of the curtain raisers was none other than Vancouver versus Calgary. A bunch of us got together, shared a meal and watched the game. We yelled, we cheered and we exchanged laughs. It was something I haven’t done for quite awhile and I found I missed that. Even though the Canucks lost, the evening was really about the company I was with.
With Olympic hockey just 4.5 months away, I’m hoping we will do this more often.
