Canucks and Beyond

Losing a Bet. Paying Up. Yet Again.

imageIt's almost like a sign of the seasons, the regularity with which I make -- and lose -- stupid hockey bets. In this latest episode, witness this March email exchange between myself and "Sailor Boy" IwoCPO of Abel to Yzerman...
IwoCPO: So, playoffs coming up. What are we betting? Alanah: I don't bet anymore. IwoCPO: Sure you do. Let's bet points, first round. I pick Pavel Dattysucky Datsyuk Alanah: I pick Daniel Sedin. IwoCPO: Loser wears an Avalanche jersey and posts a photo. Alanah: I'm not that drunk. IwoCPO: Loser wears the winner's jersey Alanah: Whatever. IwoCPO: Fine. Alanah: Sucker.
So yeah, I lost. God, how I hate Detroit fans. And by the way, anyone that copies this photo and reposts it anywhere, dies. That includes you, Sailor Boy. ____________________________ Note: A big "thank you" to Eddy's Hockey Shop here on Vancouver Island, who took pity on me, allowing me to borrow this horrible jersey. I'm exchanging it for a vintage Roberto Luongo one next week.

About Canucks and Beyond

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
