We Can Haz Goalies

imageIs there a goalie nightmare brewing in Vancouver? We hope and expect not—“we” being the hosts of The Crazy Canucks—but perhaps we’re overly optimistic.  Nonetheless, episode #70 was fun for a few reasons.

For one, when I interviewed CBC’s Jim Hughson last month he was good enough to record a show liner for the podcast, so he’s the one that opens this episode. (It sounds great.) And for another, conversation on the show gave me an excuse to dredge up this photo of my husband (Jeff) with Stan Smyl back on Raise-a-Reader day in September. (A favorite since we’re big fans of Steamer plus because we also happen to own a bookstore.)

We also have some personal requests (*do you wish to share some memories of Trevor Linden? .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)), announcements (*Rebecca and I are part of hosting some inaugural liveblog action at Canucks.com on Thursday and Friday) and prizes (*answer a skill-testing question and we might be sending you a book!).  So check it all out.

Meanwhile, here’s a possible sneak-peak at Trevor Linden’s new banner:
