Okay help me out here. Who do I cheer for Vancouver or Boston?
Some go with the ABB campaign (Anyone But Boston). That’s mainly because they defeated their beloved Canadiens. Leanne Power spits every time she has to say the ‘B’ word. Others cheer for Boston because they are the only Canadian team left. They think that Montreal is in another country and that Vancouver is on another planet.
Vancouver, some say, deserves it because they have more talent. Others say Boston should win it because they have more heart. Of course there are those who go for Vancouver because they hate Charra. Also there are Toronto fans (do they count?) who favor Boston because Vancouver stole their captain, Matts Sundin. And we can’t ignore the fact that Vancouver sent Ryan Clowe golfing earlier than he preferred.
Ah, wait now, there’s still more. I’ve been told I should back Boston because they have a uniform whereas Vancouver is still fishing around for one. Oh, and then there’s our prominent Newfoundland son, Michael Ryder. I’m strongly urged to tilt my TV in his direction. But, the opponents say there is also a Newf doing some Vancouver coaching. Lardy jumpin’, this is getting deep. Maybe I should ask Don Cherry. But then Ron McLean will disagree and I like him too.
Not simple is it? How do I figure this out? I’m confused. Come people, help me out here. After all I could be the one fan who could tip the scale in some team’s favor. Talk to me please.
