I remember every little thing about this day. I remember how sunny and beautiful it was downtown. I remember getting to the viewing screen at noon to hold a good spot, I remember the atmosphere amongst the fans before the game began, and I remember my personal anticipation with each passing hour before puck drop.
As we all know, things didn't go our way, the cup went to the Bruins, and the town went up in flames soon after.
I post this not to reignite a haunting memory, but rather to conjure up some of the great memories we had during the run. We were treated to watch the best and most exciting Canucks team in franchise history come within one game of the ultimate prize. And even though we fell just short of our goal, there were plenty of moments that myself and all Canucks fans will cherish.
Take a moment to think about great moments, the thrill, the excitement, and all the nervous anticipation we all shared enroute to that pivotal game 7.
We may have varying opinions on the players, coaches, staff, trades, strategy, whatever...but the truth is we all want the same thing. And we had ridden that roller coaster 2011 postseason together. That is what made it so special.
Forever a Canuck.
