The weather outside is frightful, as the song goes. Truly, ridiculously, appallingly frightful—by Vancouver Island standards, anyway. Between snow, hail, rain, freeze & thaw, this day is just one giant warning-bell to not leave the house.

But of course, nearly 19,000 hockey fans are leaving the house, preparing to spend 4 hours in GM Place tonight, and countless others are out searching for warm bar stools all around the province, from which to witness Trevor Linden’s jersey retirement and the game that follows it.

For those at home, some other things to see and do:

  • The Humming Giraffe has brought together an excellent group of links to writers around the net, all sharing their thoughts of Linden.
  • The Canucks website is offering a live feed starting at 6pm PT for the pre-game ceremony.
  • Speaking of the Canucks, they’ve unveiled a new Gate 16.
  • There’s also a live chat/blog going on at the Canucks Fanzone. I’ll be there, as will Mike and lots of others. We’ll be starting just before 6pm, and you’re welcome to drop by and share your Linden memories.
