Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 05/04/09 at 02:46 PM ET
Missing the playoffs last year was a nightmare, but there’s one thing to be said for it: at least we weren’t in a constant state of fear anymore. Our suffering was already over.
But this year we’re “lucky”—playoff action for all. Tons of fun! Except when it’s terrifying.
Fortunately, some Port McNeil school kids are doing their part to cheer the team on, and it’s a proven fact: cute kids doing cute things to support our team is good for our stress levels. The Hockey Gods might hate the Canucks (and Canucks fans) but surely they can’t hate cute kids?
Well, personally, I’m a pushover for them. I first heard this on CBC Radio One a couple days ago, and today the Times-Colonist here on Vancouver Island tells more details about the arrangement here. Sunset Elementary was once home to Willie Mitchell, and that’s where the video below was shot. The lyrics are below as well.
As their fans watch on, And cheer for the battles won,
Our warriors again prepare to fight.
To a team out in the west, We’ve gathered hockey’s best.
Together, they’ll bring the honour home.
Canuck playoff fever builds. Canuck dreams to be fulfilled.
Fight and focus, spirits up
To bring Lord Stanley’s Cup to Vancouver
To our coast
Wave after wave
Canucks will keep charging to victory
Join them in victory.
Cheer them on to victory.
Luongo is the man. At the net he makes his stand.
Willie’s the pride of Port McNeill. Our Canucks’ got blades of
And the fire.
Burns deep ins—i—i—i—ide.
Game after game
Canucks will celebrate their victory
Cheer them to history
With the Stanley Cup victory
Go Canucks to victory.
