In their last Vancouver matchup for the next three years (fuck you very much, New NHL), I watched the Vancouver Canucks completely embarrass the Montreal Canadiens.
It was definitely great to see my boys in blue take down the Habs, and yet, at the same time my heart was breaking.
You see, I am of the opinion that Jose Theodore is hands down the hottest thing on hockey skates. My seats were directly behind the Canucks net, 9th row, right above where the Zambonis come out.
I was waiting in giddy, girlish anticipation for the 2nd period, where I’d have an unobstructed view of #60 dousing his strong jaw, big brown eyes, shaggy rockstar hair with a strong spray of water from his water bottle, slowly shaking it off…..
But I digress.
After letting in 5 goals in the first 15 minutes of play, Theodore was yanked from the game. Backup goalie Huet was in his place. And my dreams died.
So, Canucks? While I’d love to see you dominate every other team in the NHL like this, next time Theodore makes his way to town, can I please just have a moment with him, before you embarrass him into oblivion? Thanks.
