I’ve been in Halifax for a week now. But while the trip has gone well professionally-speaking (I’m here for work) and personally (I’ve had the chance to visit a lot of the city’s historical sites, monuments and other attractions), I’m beginning to feel homesick. I love the city and I think it’s beautiful, but I can’t wait until Thursday when I finally get to go home.
Normally, a Sunday game against the Columbus Blue Jackets doesn’t excite me as much. This time around, however, I’m feening for Vancouver right now and am very much looking forward to it. On Friday night, I managed to catch the game against the Thrashers at the Oasis Sports Bar and a bunch of Dalhousie U students from Victoria were there. I’m going to a different sports bar, Bubba Ray’s, tonight – recommended by some of you fine tweeps out there – and I’m hoping there will be a few Canucks fans in attendance as well.
For those of you who aren’t quite as excited as I am for the game, I found this Canucks highlight video on YouTube. Lots of clips from this season and previous seasons. Can you believe that, after tonight, there are 6 regular season games before the real fun starts?
