A Canuck Convenience
Can you can catch a professional sporting events in nearby Vancouver if you live in the eastern Fraser Valley? You bet.
For example last night, thanks to the generosity of Star-FM 98.3, I'm a big fan and you may have recently heard some of my radio spots, I was given two tickets to the Vancouver Canucks game against the Florida Panthers. An easy 90 minute drive took me from Chilliwack to the heart of downtown Vancouver.
The buzz around the arena was the return of Roberto Luongo as the #1 goal tender of the Panthers; a high profile former Canucks for 8 seasons and Canadian Olympic Gold medal winner net minder. Would the somewhat fickle Vancouver crowd cheer or jeer?
While it turned into a losing effort for the Canucks who were downed 3 -1 by the Panthers the evening had plenty of special moments. Roberto Luongo was greeted as a champion should be, with a standing ovation part way through the first period. For a moment, I thought Luongo was going to ignore the tribute, but after a time he tapped his chest and pointed, clearly moved, to an appreciative crowd.
After that a chorus of "Loos" would erupt every time Roberto made a spectacular save, and he made many, 32 of 33 shots on net.
By the way, 1st Star of the game - Roberto Luongo.
Thanks Star-FM 98.3!
