woe is me. i guess i’ll keep my hockey chats for my husband, friends, blog etc. (edit: january was uber-canuck filled) although there are some hockey-femme fans around (as I discovered while checking the canucks op-ed this morning) so there is hope. but still… darn them hockey-sexists.
two more games vs san jose then one vs the avs – three must-wins for the canucks. we’re so close yet so far away from the playoffs. everyone’s speculating, blaming and pointing fingers. people are looking to the big-money players for vancouver who aren’t producing, those who have been injured, those who have stepped up but can’t carry the entire team – for the entire season – on their backs. time to shake up the canucks? dump the coach? dump the captain? everyone knows what’s wrong and everyone’s sharing their opinions. people were back on the bandwagon after the win on saturday and now they’re all rolling off again in a drunken stupor. as someone in my office said this morning – the mantra of canucks fans should be ‘we’ll get ’em next year’.
despite the loads of hot water the canucks are in now, i still feel as though i can talk-hockey as much as the next guy – sometimes better – sometimes not so knowledgeable. but i definately am not a clueless puck bunny. one of my pet peeves is people underestimating my intelligence on the level of hockey – GAW that’s annoying. the men in the office wait around til they’re all in so they can talk to each other about the game… meanwhile i’ve been here all morning, know all the stats, have read all the papers, blogs, reports and have about 200 times more insight than all of them put together. but do they want to talk to me about hockey? nope. i’m not one of those girls whose only knowledge of “hockey” is knowing what colour eyes Cloutier has and who looks ‘yummy’ with their playoff beards. 😐
