We’re getting close to playoff time, with a 10-game stretch at the end here…

The Vancouver Canucks, coming off a long winning streak at home, and  breaking a losing streak on the road last night… are well-positioned for these last few games before the playoffs. And I would argue, also in a good position to do well in the playoffs.

In this last half of the year, we’re finally getting some spark and jump from players that can make it happen, like the ever-darling Burrows, Kesler, and even the Sedins. And Luongo is stepping up his game… and we know how awesome he is in the playoffs.

And that’s the kind of spirit I want to see us keep on the Canucks. The kind of players who are willing to play for less to play on our team. The kind of players who are willing to play on the ice even if they are bleeding. I want to see us bring this grit and passion into the playoffs that has somehow been so elusive on a Canucks team in this city for the past few years.

Currently we’re sitting 2nd in the Northwest Division, and 5th in our conference. I’d like to see overtake Calgary at the end here. That would just rock.

Canucks Playoffs 06/07

So I say Bring It, Canucks! Let’s see what you can do here. I’m looking forward to wearing my Canucks jersey every single day… even if it gets stinky… in my annual tradition of wearing my jersey every day for good luck during the playoffs. Even to work.

Who’s excited for the playoffs?


Go Canucks GO!

You’ll have to watch the video to find out what I mean.

So I finally had a chance to do some video editing this weekend. I’ve put together the footage from the Mount Washington snowboarding trip to Courtenay on Vancouver Island in February, as well as the huge Big White bus trip to Kelowna.

Check out the video above! Video features… tree runs, powder runs, rails, jumps, and lots of silliness of course. Oh, and leg wrestling. Make sure you watch to the very end of the video :) Video is totally safe for work.

Here are also a few pictures from the two trips…

Big White view from the chairlift

Big White was great… here’s a view from the chairlift.

Our huge bus trip to Big White!

We had a huge group together (54 people)… it was definitely crazy.

Big White Group

Yup, it was Big White-out for a few moments that weekend.

Telus Park at Big White

The Telus Park at Big White was awesome… boarder cross, rails, jumps and tons of everything.

Adrian poses it up at Big White

My friend Adrian (above) and Chris made it up from San Francisco. They are two of my good friends from university and it was wonderful to see them again.

Hot Tub at Big White

The private hot tubs in our cabins were awesome! And frequently used.

View from Mount Washington

The view from Mount Washington on the Island is probably one of the most beautiful views you will ever see snowboarding. Wow!

Trev's Teddy Bear Stand

Teddy Bear stands are necessary, even in the snow.

Tequila was present

The tequila was incredible… and yes, many drinking games were played…


… including the now infamous “BOXHEAD” game…

Huge Vat of Pasta

A huge vat of pasta was cooked for dinner, plus a huge breakfast in the morning. Group meals!
