So tonight the Canucks won game #6 of their second playoff round, eliminating the Nashville Predators and advancing to the third round for the first time in 17 years!!
I watched the game at my friend Lianna’s place and when I headed back home afterwards, I’d completely forgotten that 72nd and Scott Road is *the* place for Canucks fans in Surrey, so when I took the 72nd Ave exit off Hwy 91, it took me a minute to figure out why the heck traffic was at a standstill! And I inched forward along 72nd, waiting until I could get to a major street to take a detour, would you believe that my iPhone, which I was using to play music on shuffle, started playing Combat Baby? That is the truest of true stories, my friends. And I may, just may, have driven along my little detour with my window open, blaring Combat Baby and honking at all the other fans who were waving flags on the side of the road, or driving up and down the streets.
Go Canucks Go!
So, in addition to being a panelist at the upcoming Northern Voice conference on Friday, I’m also going to have a booth at the Northern Voice Non-Profit Expo on Saturday!
When I saw that NV was, in fact, having the Non-Profit Expo as part of the conference again this year, I decided to apply to get a table to promote the Longest Game of Hockey – you know, the insanely crazy thing where I’m playing hockey for 10 days straight to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis? Yeah, that. The good people running the NV conference deemed us worthy and we were chosen as one of the non-profits who get to expo ourselves!
If you are going to be at Northern Voice, be sure to drop by our table to say hi, hear more about the game, donate to the cause or… something else, but I’m not going to tell you what that is just yet!
And if you aren’t going to be at the conference, you can totally just go to the LG4CF website and donate copious amounts of money in my name. True story!
