World Junior Championships: 06

One of my Christmas gifts was a pair of tickets to one of the round robin games in the hockey World Junior Championships that Vancouver, Kelowna and Kamloops are hosting.

While I enjoy watching hockey games live, having spent years as a fan of the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets and now having tickets to the Canucks, this isn’t really the level of hockey I’m used to.

Granted the best from Canada’s junior leagues will be playing in this championship and I’m sure that Canada versus Sweden, Russia or the United States would be great games there’s just something about the titantic match-up between Switzerland and Norway that I’m currently watching that’s hypnotizing me to sleep.

So far the game is scoreless and blogging this is what’s keeping me up.

    I think you’re realy missing out if you’re at one of the unfortunate games. I’ve been to two of the games in Kelowna, and they have been outstanding. Sure things aren’t the same when you don’t know the players, but the hockey is VERY good. The skill that these players have is top notch. Any of the international teams could easily outmatch the Vancouver Giants or the Kelowna Rockets. You’re taking the 24 players from a country and sending them to BC. These are the top players in the world. Among their ranks are the top NHL draft picks, and future draft picks.

    So don’t knock the hockey, you maybe just caught a bad game. Watch the Czech Republic vs. anybody. Check out the games of TSN, you’ll love them. Or else the hockey gods will impail your soul with a broken carbon fibre hockey stick…
