In Response to Re: Damn Canucks fans... : put behind until the next time the Vancouver canucks lose again in embarrassing fashion or to a supposed underdog. unfortunately red i think your just living in place were hockey is all they people of British Columbia have! especially since the Vancouver grizzlies left town for new Orleans! ok maybe not so much but u get my point. living here in boston its just on to the sox , pats , or celtics. now of course my true fandom is for the bruins but boston fans have other sports to occupy our time til the next bruins season starts. were u are not really they will just continue to be aholes!

And, not to nitpick, but it was Memphis that Michael Heisley moved the Grizzlies to.
It's actually been quite the couple years in sports here: the Olympics, a new MLS team, the Cup Finals, and we're also looking forward to hosting the Grey Cup in November, and the re-opening of BC Place Stadium at the end of September. Like the Metrodome in Minneapolis, BCP needed to replace it's teflon fabric roof, but unlike Minny, the government here decided to spend a half billion on a brand new retractable roof, modeled after the Commerzbank Stadium in Frankfurt,where the Women's World Cup Final was held last month. I went to the open house preview a couple of weeks ago, and it was incredible. It's like an entirely new stadium. I don't know if nitemare follows the Stamps, but they'll be the Lions' second opponents there on Oct 8th.
I'm a Lions season ticket holder, so I'm fully engaged with football right now, and we just got tickets to go see the Seahawks/Falcons game on Oct 2nd. We usually get to at least one Mariners game, but didn't get 'er done this summer.
In addition to being shamed by the actions of stupid Canuck fans, I sometimes feel sorry for them, not being able to 'leave it behind', and get on with their lives.
