What do you mean it’s already the playoffs? Didn’t we just finish like, last month?
As a true fan, I’m sure this is what you might feel too as well as know that heartbreak and recovery was not an easy process. I dreamed for years and years to get to the Stanley Cup finals and it was within the grasps of our fingertips. If you truly love the Vancouver Canucks, your blue and green heart must have shattered into a million pieces like mine, and the only way to mend is with that cup they call Stanley.
Well folks, that time is here again and the only way we’re going to get through this is if we stick together, believe in blue and support our men on the ice. Although impossible, try to be as positive as you can so we can strengthen the right attitude as a city.
When we won our last game against Edmonton, I know everyone was glued to the TV as we watched the final minutes of San Jose versus LA because the loser would be playing us in the first round of the playoffs. Secretly, I was chanting for San Jose to win only because I thought it might be a possibility to travel to LA to catch a game. And possible it was because guess what?! I just booked my flight to LA and I’ll be in attendance at Staples Center for game 3 and 4! I can’t believe it! Everything worked out so perfectly, it almost creeps me out. You see, my work is shut down for maintenance for the entire month of April so it was meant to be!
And what is making it even more exciting? The Province reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in covering my road trip via blogging, vlogging and tweeting. I only had to think about it for all of half a second and of course my answer was YES! So here I am, loud and proud to be documenting my trip from everything from the preparation to the games themselves. I put together a quick little video to show two things: 1) What to expect from my trip to LA for the playoff games and 2) How much of a noob I am when it comes to actually vlogging. I promise you, I will do my best to make it better.
So here are some things I’m going to kindly ask from you:
1) If you’d like, follow me on Twitter @amienguyen and the Province: @theprovince
2) Send me a tweet or post a comment if you have any suggestions of what you’d want to see in LA or in my playoff coverage in general.
Until then, GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!
