But you can't whine about "high costs for out of towners" - again, everything you do in life IS a choice, so it's about what's the most important to you.
Deb,I take care of an elderly parent and have a sick brother that requires hospitalization but there is no place for him in 'the system'.
My Mother must care for him but he is nearly 60 and my Mom cannot walk most days now.
Not everything in life is 'a choice'.
There is a life beyond Vancouver for most Canucks fans.
First of all, let me express my sincere and heartfelt wishes for you and your family.

In your case, yes....life is unfair and it would be nice if someone like you could catch a break and attend a game. It sounds like you certainly could use a night out like that. So let's eliminate you from "those whining"...as someone legitimately in a position that makes it tough for you to put yourself first.
And damn, if I do get some tickets I'm sending them your way.....
