And when life throws a bean ball directly at your head, charge the mound.
Well that Chairman Maouth guy is one interesting guy. Super interesting the paths in life I guess and you never can see what be in the future. Sounds like a movie tbh
And he had the misfortune... like the rest of us... of being born a Canuck fan.
Short and sweet.
I was born in Vancouver, but I live in the Cayman Islands now. Canuck fan since day 1.
And living in the hockey-starved Caribbean doesn't make me any less of a Canuck fan. I fly up to Tampa & Sunrise to see the Canucks play the Lightning and Panthers every year... and any time I'm back in Vancouver visiting family, I check out a game or 2.
For my birthday last year... I got myself some personalized license plates for my car, and probably 95% of the country is clueless about the meaning of them. I get asked "What a C-Nuck is (See-Nuck)...and wha' you love bout' dem?" almost daily.
Great to have you here! Btw whats with the username??
my heart goes out to anyone who doesn't know about jerk chicken
Well thats the first Ive seen him post, i will pay attention from NOW on
That's a great plate!
Why the Caymans? You an accountant?
Because proper Jamaican jerk chicken... is the best food on earth.
If you mean the food, then I agree. --- If you meant ME, then not so much.
I used to post a lot. I'm more of a creepy lurker guy.
Thanks! I tried to convince my wife to get a similar one, but she wasn't having it.
As for being an accountant...nah. I'm among the 1% of expats here who doesn't work in finance in some capacity.
Small, always hot, usually sunny, beach-filled tax-free islands >>> Big cities & cold climates.
Sounds like a description of me, minus the lurker part....
At least you're honest, HTP. You'll always have that.
Hello everyone, I'm Alberto and I'm italian.
I started to follow the Canucks in 2007 when I was 16 and, basically, that was Luongo's fault. He was on fire that year and he quickly became my favourite player.
Then, knowing the team, I fell in love also with players like Salo, Bieksa, Mitchell, Naslund, Sedins.
My first Canucks' great memory is game 7 against Dallas, that year.
My best Canucks' memory is Burrow's goal against the Hawks in 2011's game 7.
My favourite all-time Canuck is obviously Lu. Runner up is Sami Salo.
Hope to share other great memories on this board.
We Are All Canucks.
From Finland, been fan since finals against rangers. Remember many finnish players visiting canucs, Ruuttu, Tikkanen, Lumme
//edit big fan of Laine as well so have tons of symphaty to Winnipeg as well
//edit2 no excuses of forgetting Sami Salo there above :/
Great having you here and to see our popularity reaches Italy!!
Great having ya here. Looking fwd to Juolevi Palmu and other Finns on our team in the coming years!
Expected Juolevi to break through already last season - apparently i was wrong. He, what i hope and believe, has potential to become new Paul Coffey kinda player
May it be so.
Brady, 42, Software Developer, Canucks fan since about 88 (except for a short hiatus during the Messier years). I grew in East Van, but have lived in Portland for the last 12 years. We have a pretty healthy ball hockey community here, and I also play in a couple of ice leagues. The nice thing about living in a non-hockey town is that you can safely go out to eat and drink and not worry about accidently seeing the score, so I usually watch games late at night or the next morning. I've been mostly lurking for the last few years, but my biggest claim to fame around here is that I was the first one to figure out the CAPTCHA fast voting hack that kicked the Vote For Rory campaign into high gear. Not that it was anything genius or that somebody else wouldn't have figured it out if I hadn't, but whatever, I'm taking it.
If any of you ever come down this way and want to play some ball hockey, we do open pickup on Wednesday nights in the summer and Saturday mornings all winter. PM me for details
You get a like for the #voteforrory alone.
Boone County is the place you were referring to on Brunette near the #1. It’s closed now, and the building has been sitting unused for years. In the early 2000s it was mostly a relatively quiet place frequented by mostly older(30s and up) patrons, then became popular among the younger set as country music became more “in”, and it was closer for a lot of people than Roosters out in Pitt. Eventually it rebranded as “TNB”, or “The New Boone”, and that did not go well. Then it died, I guess.
Yep you nailed it. Boone County - beside a KFC and either a Budget or Midas muffler shop.
I'm talking about back in the 80s - that's when I used to go there. But jeez, it seems strange to me that the building is now sitting vacant in an area that should be desirable for business - in a metropolitan area just seconds off a major highway.
But thanks for remembering the name for me.
I've been a fan since their inception (though I really didn't know what the heck was going on given my age - yeah, yeah, in before "so...how is that any different how you are now?" ). Reason why I'm bi-polar today.
