Update: Update June 2008: It has been announced that “Trevor Linden Day” in Vancouver will be the day the Canucks retire his jersey to the rafters in the fall. [News1130]
Update: Update December 2008: Info on Trevor Linden Night can be found here.
This Saturday the Canucks will play the Flames but it won’t mean anything as the nail was hammered into our coffin last night by those stinkin’ Oilers.
What this means is that Saturday might just be the last time we see Trevor Linden puts his heart and soul into a Canucks game – if they even play the guy who has carried Vancouver fans for 19 years. This town loves him so much there was a campaign to get him re-signed last year and many have even noted they’d vote him in as mayor in a heartbeat.
This Saturday at the Flames game, show your support for Captain Vancouver:
Trevor Linden is the heart of the team. Even though he got 5 minutes a game, he still gives it every game. It may be his last game ever (hopefully not), so we should try and put in the effort to make it Trevor Linden’s special day against the Flames.
For people going to the game:
– Make chants
– Make Signs
– Wear your Linden Jerseys/Shirts
For people who aren’t going to the game – if your at the bar, if your at home, if your not watching the game, who cares. Sport TL everywhere, this man is unreal.
PASS THE WORD – INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
post good chants if you have one or what your going to write on your sign if you will be at the game.
I had the pleasure of meeting Trevor on a Raise a Reader morning two years ago, and was supposed to meet him again last January but I was in Toronto – luckily John was able to take my place.
April 13, 1989 – A 19 year-old Trevor Linden scores vs the Flames
He’s been the most popular Canucks player, the one we’d all want to have a been with, and has represented Vancouver better than anyone else on the North American hockey stage (you know, even though he’s originally from Medicine Hat).
That excited kid with the fluffy hair posed slyly against the side of a fiery red mustang is now being bumped off lines, and has been a healthy scratch an obscene amount of games this season. Let’s make sure he knows how much Canucks fans truly appreciate his contribution to our hockey-watching lives.
