Vancouver prepares for Game #5, hoping for a home victory
Even though I'm a Closet Canuck, I didn't travel to Vancouver with the sole intent of watching Game #5 of the Stanley Cup Final. Tonight is a biggie, with the final tied at 2-2, and the Boston Bruins comin' on strong in the last two games played in Beantown. No, the reason I took Amtrak Cascades north to Vancouver was to attend TBEX '11. This weekend is the third annual Travel Blogger Exchange conference, with more than 600+ travel bloggers/writers/industry types expected.
But back to Game #5. Prior to the TBEX '11 opening kickoff party at the Vancouver Art Gallery at 8 PM tonight, I'll wend my way to one of the public viewing areas to watch the game with the locals. The past two games were pretty pathetic -- not only because of the way the Canucks underperformed, but because I was watching them home alone. Hockey is not a solo sport! Sadly, I don't have any hockey apparel, so I'll just show up as myself. I don't think anybody will mind.
Go Canucks Go!
