Hockey Season Begins!

Actually, it began last Wednesday, but the Canucks's first game was last night, a 3-1 loss to the Sharks. Now, I'm not a big-time hockey fan, but hockey games are always fun to go to, and seeing as how the nearest NHL team to Seattle is in Vancouver, I've adopted the 'Nucks as my favorite team. I've haven't yet been to one of their games, but I've attended two other NHL matches: the Rangers v. Flyers at Madison Square Garden in 1985, and the Capitals v. Canadiens in Washington last winter. I've also been to several Seattle Breakers and Seattle Thunderbirds games, one Everett Silvertips game, and we might go to a Spokane Chiefs game next month.

The above image cracks me up -- it's a mashup of various Canucks logos from over the years, including Johnny Canuck, a sort of Canadian Uncle Sam who served as the team's pre-NHL logo. I'm not sure who deserves credit (I seriously doubt the folks at Pfizer took time from manufacturing Viagra to design it), but I originally found it here.

Game on!
