GAME DAY BITCHES

Get a load of our fellow Justice League: Twitter edition cohort. @faqu94 sends his best along with a picture of himself getting ready for Game 7. @michealrioux later pointed out: “I love how he wolfed down a bag of Old Dutch chips right before the pic."

Classic case of crushing Old Dutch and taking an epic pic if you ask us.

Game 7 for all the beans is all that’s left Nation. It’s a good old fashioned GDB: SCF7.

THE GREAT WANYETO

"It’s time for bold action and declarations of victory. Good luck fellas. Bruins 5 – Canucks 2"

– The Great Wanyeto. Before Game 6.

NOT TOO SHABBY

As a person who sold his TV to attend Game Six of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, we can identify with the importance of the big old W the Bruins were able to take home. But the Oilers shaped hole in our heart can attest to the fact that Game 6 wins – no matter how dominating they may be – do not a Stanley Cup winner make.

So when we say good luck to the Boston Bruins we mean it, understanding that as a fan the loss stays with you for a good long time.  But as a player what are the odds are you are going back to the Finals again in your career?

Someone with a calculator! Quickly now! What percentage of NHL players in the SCF have appeared in a Cup Final game again in their career?

Can’t figure it out? Har har har.

Neither can the Canucks it would seem.

Go BROONS. Win it for Tim Thomas.

    Wait for it… wait for it… what’s the sound… the collective out of the Vancouver Canuck bandwagon jumpers just got loosed….

    This will be a glorious night….

    Keep the negativity coming hockey fans of losing teams. Kesler takes that negative energy, swallows it down and turns it into body checks and goals. Luongo takes it and shoves it in his pads to make them bigger and block more shots. The Sedin twins and Burrows… well they don’t understand English very well so they don’t even know about your bitterness. They haven’t had time to learn it what with all the perfect passes and sweet goal scoring they’ve been doing. Bieksa… well you’re lucky he’s so busy captalizing on bad bounces or he might come to your house and eat your babies.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go plan a parade route. GO CANUCKS GO! BELIEVE IN BLUE! KES WE CAN! IN LU WE TRUST! BIEK-CELLENT! WIN DA TURD & DA CUP!

    Congratulations to the Vancouver Canucks, the greatest hockey team ever assembled (according to the very knowledgeable and winning fans of Vancouver). Classy fans all the way, throwing stuff on the ice at the end. Even when the Oilers lost the Stanley Cup on home ice, Edmonton fans never… oh wait.

    Standard Operating Procedure for CanuckFan

    1) Demand unconditional surrender of other 29 teams in October
    2) Spend next eight months insisting that *THIS* group of EuroSissies and unapologetic douchebags is DIFFERENT! Really!
    3) Witness stellar choke job at worst possible time. Again.
    4) Burn city to ground, rinse and repeat.

    Of course, the most telling aspect of this storied franchise is that the best use that their fans have for their gear is to use it to cover their faces from the cameras during a riot.

    Well done, Greatest City in The Known Universe! We simple prairie-dwellers stand in awe of you.

  • Stupid riot took away all the fun I was supposed to have in relishing the Canucks losing. Oh well, there’s always THE ENTIRE SUMMER!!!

    This seriously could not have gone any better. I kept saying to myself “Flames lost in seven, Oilers lost in seven, Canucks WILL lose in seven”. A 4-0 loss ON HOME ICE to boot?? Christmas came early!!

    What a day, what a day. I’m really excited to see everyone incredibly depressed at work tomorrow. Which shirt should I wear, Messier or Ranford?

  • Vancouver has a good chance to be back in the cup next year 2012. The only teams in the west that will improve will be Chicago and LA. SJ looks like it could decline, Det always good but not good enough.

    In the east Boston, Philly and Pittsburg.
