I'm going to let these pictures and videos do most of the storytelling, but I think it would be remiss of me to be a Vancouverite and not mention that something huge is going down here right now. The Vancouver Canucks are in the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 17 years. Last evening was game two. To deal with the thousands of people who want to watch and party and parade around town with homemade Stanley Cups, the city has set up a bunch of outdoor screens, streets are closed, and people are high-fiving and slapping their bellies all over the place (seriously, that seems to be a way that men are celebrating this). We saw party RVs, almost got murdered by an airhorn blast of unrivalled power, snuck into the CBC plaza party, and watched the Canucks win with an overtime goal just 11 seconds into the first overtime period. Were you downtown or watching somewhere else last night? What are you doing for game three tomorrow? Are you, like me, a Flames fan who is just loving this for the atmosphere that it's creating in the city? I swear. Jeff and I are like, well, this is fun, but it's no 2004...and I don't get to scream "THAT'S MY NEIGHBOUR!!!" every time Martin Gelinas scores a series-winning goal. Check out some amazing photos and more over at the CBC.
