Thanksgiving

WHEN YOU GOT UP THIS MORNING…DID YOU NOTICE THE SUN WAS SHINNING???
THE BIRDS WERE SINGING…
YOUR ORANGE JUICE TASTED A LITTLE SWEETER…
EVEN THE PERSON DOWN THE HALL…YOU KNOW THE ONE THAT HAS NOTHING TO SAY BUT WILL JUST NOT “SHUT UP”…
YOU KNOW WHO I’M TALKING ABOUT…
EVEN “THAT” PERSON COULD NOT RAIN ON YOUR PARADE…NOT TODAY…
LASTNIGHT THE CANUCKS THUMPED CALGARY 6-0…AND LOOKED GREAT IN DOING SO…
THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT WINNING SPORTS TEAMS THAT CONNECTS A CITY…
IT IS A SHARED COMMON EXPERIENCE THAT TRULY DOES ELEVATE THE QUALITY OF LIFE…
TONIGHT THE B.C. LIONS TAKE ON THE ESKIMOES…
THAT WOULD BE THE “FIRST PLACE”… B.C. LIONS…WHO HAVE NOW WON 5 STRAIGHT…
ALSO TONIGHT…THE VANCOUVER GIANTS TAKE ON KELOWNA AT THE PACIFIC COLISEUM…
THE GIANTS HAVE THE BEST RECORD IN THE ENTIRE WESTERN HOCKEY LEAGUE…
SATURDAY THE CANUCKS ARE IN CALGARY…
AND ON SUNDAY AT SWANGGARD STADIUM…THE VANCOUVER WHITECAPS WILL PLAY PUERTO RICO IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL…
FANS IN THIS CITY HAVE EARNED THE RIGHT TO BATHE IN ALL THIS…BECAUSE IN THE PAST THE SPORTS GODS HAVE NOT ALWAYS BEEN KIND…
EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO TONIGHT…
THE PHILADELPHIA FLYERS CAME INTO TOWN AND KICKED SNOW INTO THE FACE OF THE CANUCKS…
THE FINAL COUNT WAS 8-2…
IT WAS DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHAT WAS WORSE…THE SCORE OR HOW THE CANUCKS WERE PUSHED AROUND IN THEIR OWN BUILDING…
A FEW WEEKS LATER THE LIONS LOST THE WESTERN FINAL ALSO IN THEIR OWN BUILDING…
THIS SEASON THEY HAD A LOSING RECORD BY THE HALF WAY POINT…
AS FOR THE CAPS…LAST YEAR THEY FINISHED 7TH IN THE REGULAR SEASON AND WERE BOUNCED IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS…
YES WE HAVE SUFFERED…BUT IT PALES IN COMPARISON WITH WHAT SEATTLE FANS ARE GOING THROUGH…
THE MARINERS FINISHED DEAD LAST IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE…THE SEAHAWKS ARE 1 AND 4…THE HUSKIES ARE 0 AND 5…AND THE SONICS HAVE MOVED TO OKLAHOMA CITY…TALK ABOUT A BAD YEAR…
SO AS YOU SIT DOWN FOR YOUR TURKEY DINNER THIS WEEKEND…
TAKE A MOMENT TO THINK OF THE CANUCKS…THE LIONS…THE GIANTS AND THE WHITECAPS…
RIGHT NOW WE ALL HAVE PLENTY…TO BE THANKFULL FOR…
