I am a big fan of hockey as many of my friends will tell you. Don't get between me and the game on my 40" HD surround sound screen. I am from BC and now live in Toronto. I cheer for the Vancouver Canucks because well, my new hometown does not have a hockey team. Just Kidding Toronto.
I went to a local bar last night to watch the game and play pool. Its the best. There are two big screen TVs at either end of the pool table. You can play pool, drink beer and watch the game. It was exciting for two periods as it was a close game, albeit the Canucks were dominating. The third saw the Canucks really turn it on and it was awesome to watch. We won. Now only two more wins to advance to the Stanley Cup.
Needless to say, I was very happy heading home. I got home, checked out the high-lites and then checked the Canuck facebook page for pictures. I was a little taken aback by one photo with a clearly homophobic description. Some fan had uploaded a great image from the game then proceeded to ruin it with hateful language.
There is no good reason for the Canucks to allow this kind of comment on their facebook page. I suggest they have it removed now and ban the person who posted it, or at least screen their future postings. I love the game of hockey, I love the Canucks. But last night your marketing people drained a lot of excitement out of people. I am just sick to my stomach.
Help me remain a happy Canucks Fan!
