My first Canucks game

leave a comment »

   What is Canada’s favorite sport? Hockey! It’s what we are known for. Canadians created the official sport and continue to play it as our most popular game. Canada even beat the USA at this years Olympics 🙂
    It’s surprising to say that I have never been to the Canucks game before. I enjoy watching hockey games on tv and have watched many in my life. I even watched a practice game of the Canucks a while back, but no game in GM place/Rogers arena.  It’s probably due to the time in 1994 when the Canucks lost the Stanley cup.  I was a bit disappointed to say the least 🙂  I did see my first hockey game this year back in February Canada versus Swizerland for the Olympics. Canada won of course and it was awesome!
      Yesterday I watched the Vancouver Canucks play against the Carolina Hurricanes. It was a good game, lots of shots of net and many goals.  The Canucks played really well, and Carolina not so much.  It ended up being 5-1! We had a blast and I’m glad to say that now I’ve officially seen my first Canucks game.  It’s much more exciting live, as I’m sure most everyone knows already.  Well, it’s better late then never. Good Game.
