Hockey Sweater

It took six games in a best-of-seven series, but the Vancouver Canucks managed to defeat the LA Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I had originally planned to post a statue of Lord Stanley (after whom both the Cup and the Park are named) himself here today, but today is the first game of the Canucks' matchup in the second round - they'll be playing the Chicago Blackhawks this afternoon at 5pm Pacific Time, in Chicago. I told you Vancouver was a hockey-mad city, right? Someone (probably a municipal authority, but I prefer to imagine it's some eccentric millionaire) has bedecked one of the giant lions that guard either side of the entrance to the Lions Gate Bridge in a Canucks hockey jersey of his very own. The lion on the other side of the bridge entrance has a mockup of the Stanley Cup placed in front of him. Go Canucks Go!
