The lions that guard the entrance to the Lions Gate Bridge (on the Stanley Park side) have been known recently to show their support and team pride.
They sported red mittens during the Olympics and now they’ve traded the red for blue.
A few days ago images surfaced of the lions wearing Canucks jerseys. This morning I noticed that Susan Gittins posted a photo of a Stanley Cup replica placed between one of the lion’s paws (below). In past years, the Cup has been spotted placed in Sir Stanley’s hands at the entrance of the park itself.
However, having asked earlier this week if it was bad luck to hug the Cup, I’m wondering just how these acts may be received. Do you think it’s bad luck to place the Stanley Cup around town, or even carry a replica into games?
Regardless, it seems like the entire city is ready for a parade down Georgia Street. Round two of the Stanley Cup playoffs kick off Saturday when the Canucks take on the Chicago Blackhawks.
