Dear Hockey Gods,
Please forgive me. Check that, please forgive us. By us, I of course mean Canuck Nation. As a whole, we mocked the Chicago Blackhawks when we were up 3 games to 0. They were too tired, too beat up.. we thought. We began to ask Theo Fleury to eat his words, after he predicted a first round exit. And of course, I wrote a blog urging fans to get their brooms ready. As sure as it seemed, we have clearly upset you (the hockey gods). It’s the only way to explain two blowout losses in games 4 and 5 and a crushing overtime defeat in game 6.
On behalf of Canucks fans everywhere, we have learned our lesson. Sorry. Please forgive us.
