My son, Ian, likes to needle me about the Canucks (he's more of a soccer fan than hockey) and it's reaching fever pitch now that the Playoffs have started and we are playing our nemisis – the Chicago Blackhawks.
The other day I told him to lighten up on the rhetoric because it was really important to real fans to stay positive – my house is a Canuck Bashing Free Zone, regardless of the outcome.
So…today when I got home from some errands my son came out with a gift for me. A Vancouver Canuck Jersey! Isn't that awesome and such a thoughtful and sweet peace offering. I was really touched – earned him BIG points considering he's a student and this set him back some bucks.
Love you Henrick, Daniel, Alex and Ryan…but especially you Ian!
