Bandwagoning



Did you hear that? It was me. Hopping aboard the Vancouver Canucks' bandwagon. Whole-freakin'-heartedly.

The Leafs are done. The dream has been packed up and put away until September, when we shall meet again. Until then, I'm all about Vancouver. Playoffs!!!!1, Canucks style. 

Mats Sundin is going back to the post-season. For the first time since 2004, when I was, like, five years old. It's been a long, long time. Excitement is there.

Mats may not win the Stanley Cup with the Canucks. I know that. I'm just glad he's getting the chance...

PS: It's not Leafs, Sundin, or Canucks related, but remember to vote in the new poll.

Leafs or Nothing baby, thats the way i feel, you go bandwagon your heart out......i expect that from a guy who thinks the Lafs had a chance this year....I hope Hason wears his dads glasses when he plays, cause the rest of the season is worthless, but you know me, i will still watch every minute of the final games.....

What happens when the Canucks get eliminated? Do you have a #3 team? And if they get bumped, do you have a #4? Perhaps you should lay out your allegiances, ranked 1 through 16, for the upcoming playoffs.

Me? I tend to take another route: identify the teams I want eliminated first and cheer for them to lose.

I'm cheering for who ever the habs get in the first round

Kush: Glad you caught that. Everyone's willing to write that the Jays are going to finish in last, but there are very few out there who are willing to put money where their fingers are. It's sad.

Bhatti-Boy: I'm going to smack you when I see you. For so many reasons. You obviously didn't read Burke's recent comments, b/c he said what I've been saying for months now: this Leafs team was a good goalie from making the playoffs THIS YEAR. And I'm hopping aboard the bandwagon b/c of Mats. He's a Leaf. He'll always be a Leaf.

MF: Well, hopefully the Canucks don't get eliminated. I don't really give a damn about any other team. Not rooting for anyone else. I've got a vested interest in Vancouver, hence the bandwagon hoppage. I don't really root against many teams, except for Montreal. I just enjoy the first round. It's like Christmas. Hockey every night, at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm. It's just lovely.

Kush: It would only be right.

I'm pretty sure I know which way you're voting in the poll, Ack. I've got a hunch.

Climb aboard bro, I like the 'Nucks' chances. We can always cheer for Sundin and "gulp"... Wellwood.

Karina said...

Well, eyebeleaf, due to my husband I'll be cheering for the 'nucks in the playoffs as well.
Mats has been coasting recently, I think that since the 'nucks are guaranteed a playoff spot he's conserving his energy and will take over whenever it looks like the canucks are down and out. That man wants a cup.

Why do you hate me?

Good choice on the Cancucks!

kushnir said...

BEST








POLL









EVER

Scott: Wellwood will be doing most of the gulping.

Karina: I think Mats is going to be a beast - a real leader - for the Canucks in the playoffs. I cannot bloody wait.

Wrap: Wrong. I love you.

Ian: I knew you'd approve.

Kush: I thought so, too.

Cool blog! I just stumbled on it and now I’m a dedicated reader. If you have free time you might want to check out sports shops.

I fully endorse this! Well done! This team is special this season. I don't wanna jinx it, but I got a good feeling. Time for Mats to kick some najor westcoast ass :)

This poll is garbage. Where is the "Obviously" option?!

(and yes, good choice on the Canucks)
