The search for the Canucks game: San Francisco edition

I’m in San Francisco for the week on a business trip, but that doesn’t mean I’m not following the Canucks. Most of us were desperate for a place to watch the playoff game, since regular American cable was not going to be covering it. Thankfully we located a sports bar a block from the hotel and invaded it, making them put the game on the bulk of their televisions. We weren’t the only ex-pat Canadians getting their hockey fix there either, with at least three other groups cheering on the Canucks one table had jerseys, flags and made tiny white towels out of their cocktail napkins.

It was unfortunate that our cross-border-karma was not enough to lift the Canucks to victory, though to be honest they never looked like they were in control of the game. Always chasing the lead and never shooting enough they deserved to lose this one. Hopefully it’ll be all the motivation they need to come out strong on Tuesday and take this series by the scruff of the neck like a mother polar bear with her brood.

    CBC is streaming all the games (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/stanleycup2007/streams/). Not quite the same as in a bar, but it works in a pinch.
