Clay’s Canucks Commentary: Hooray for Cliches!
The Vancouver Canucks are down three games to zero to the San Jose Sharks in their first-round NHL playoff match-up. As they try to stave off elimination in this must-win game, I turned to my kids for their predictions. Sean and Kayla are optimistic that the Canucks will still make this a competitive series, and they pulled out every sports cliche possible in expressing their optimism. Meanwhile, Jacob took a more cynical approach as he worked in a few cliches and a bunch of thought-provoking questions regarding the Canucks’ future.
