Canucks and Beyond

From The Crazy Canucks website:
The crew is going mobile for an upcoming episode of The Crazy Canucks podcast.
On Tuesday February 17th we’ll be heading to The Score on Davie for brews, banter, and to watch the Canucks take on the Flames on their big 70 inch screen.
The puck drops at 6:30pm so we’ll be there shortly before. Feel free to stop by and say hi if you’re in the neighbourhood, then kick back and catch the game with us in this super-comfortable sports bar (with wifi) [Google Map].
I’m not 100% sure I’ll be able to join my cohosts, but I’ll be in Vancouver so I’ll do my best. And if so, I really hope to meet some readers/listeners there. Shared misery and/or euphoria are some of the best things about watching a hockey game.
Plus, I know how much you all want to give me free beers…
Everyone gathered this evening for a quick episode where we discuss Luongo’s early November shutout streak, the third jersey, the Canucks making their film debut, and some making their debut in Manhattan. Third jersey talks, and a whole lot of Wellwood appreciation round out this edition of The Crazy Canucks.
Warning to Leafs fans: There’s a point in the show where I was trying to defend your honour (truly!) but that effort went a bit south when I sorta likened the flood of your jerseys onto the streets of Vancouver last Saturday to some sort of gay pride parade. (whoops…)
P.S. Incidentally I also spent a few minutes on this episode of The Rink Podcast last week, hosted by James (of Jerseys and Hockey Love) and Tom (of AOL Fanhouse). Their podcast is a great show covering the NHL in general, which I suggest everyone check out sometime.
The Crazy Canucks had a small gap in our podcasts this month (John is our mighty producer, and he’s been recovering from some dark & mysterious illness) but a new episode is now up. Check it out.
In addition to hockey talk, we were also pondering TCC sitings around Vancouver and the photo here made my day. That’s J.J. and DaveO from our crew, plus Richard Loat (of Facebook) in the middle.
“I just passed you on a bus!”
I’m not sure, but I think she sounded a bit scared. (And god knows, I am…)
- My little swag contest will still accept entries till game time on Saturday, 7pm PT. Just watch the video to discover the prizes (And they’re fantastic prizes—things like
cars! boats! and GM Place luxury suites!and/or a canucks beer bottle money bank!).
- Have you seen The Crazy Canucks roll by on the side of a bus lately, or on posters at Skytrain stations around Vancouver? Well, we’re out there. The photo on this post is DaveO with one his posters at Burrard. If you see any of our photos around the city, grab a shot and email it to me or enter it in the TCC Flickr photo pool. There’s prizes, too.
- The Yankee Canuck is going to be covering the Canucks game in Washington on Monday, with a press pass for Canucks.com. I was explaining to him how it’s totally acceptable to cheer from the press box and throw popcorn at AO’s head whenever the opportunity presents itself. (So if you have any more good journalistic advice like mine, please be sure to let him know…)
We’re back. Season three of TCC kicks off with a quick gathering of the crew to has out what to expect for the coming season as well as some cool things going on with each of our various projects. We take a look back as who we’ve lost, the new faces (that we kinda think we know something about but don’t know half as much as we’d like), hash out the who does what for TV and radio play-by-play, and take assignments for new names of the team for show and tell later.
Listen to the show at TCC or just pop it into iTunes. There’s a lot more news as well, so Canucks fans be sure to listen. Also check out J.J.‘s new site CanucksHockeyBlog.com (no more blogspot) where he’s preparing to give away two tickets to the September 23rd preseason game against the Oilers.
The five of us will all be attending that night as well, so maybe we’ll get a chance to pelt the winner with popcorn.
The Vancouver Canucks released their pre-season schedule yesterday. (Isn’t that timely of them? They’re only behind some 27 other teams or so, releasing this…)
Anyway, the team’s first preseason game is September 22, opening with a home-and-home match-up against the Forces of Evil.
