So far, a snow hockey news day…
from Tyler Olsen of the Chilliwack Times,
A Chilliwack man’s tale of a road trip that ended with him walking through San Jose, Calif., in a hospital gown may be headed to the big screen.
Last week, Hollywood newspaper Variety reported that a pair of film companies have teamed up “to develop and finance a screenplay” based on Danny Hebert’s first-person account of the trip….
It was last May when, in the midst of the Vancouver Canucks’ playoff run, he, Jared Rempel, Cody Schlamb and David Vink decided on a whim to drive to California to cheer on their team.
After cheering a Vancouver victory, the road trip took a turn when they ran into Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini at a local bar. Hebert, who had been drinking, became ill and eventually had to be taken to hospital by paramedics. After waking up alone in hospital, he walked five miles through the city back to his hotel.
The men then drove back to Vancouver, where they found tickets to the next playoff game waiting for them, courtesy of Aquilini.
