It’s Easter Sunday today, and the Canucks are preparing to play Game 6 in Chicago after blowing a 3-0 series lead.
Well, here’s to wishful thinking. After watching Roberto Luongo have epic BlackHawk melt-downs for, let’s see, the second time of this playoffs, (third this season), in addition to another five or so melt-downs in previous playoffs, I am very skeptical that he will fare well in Game 6 today. I think they should have played Schneider in Game 5, no pressure, and if that didn’t work, let Lou play it out, but now? With Lou starting, let’s now hope Lou becomes a human wall.
In order to dull my senses before watching Coach V and Lou lead my team to potential slaughter once more, I am having a Big Rock Traditional Ale.
The head was much better than the photo lets on, but it does fade quite quickly into a shallow white slick. The aroma is mild with just a hint of sweetness. The taste is full, and makes me want to eat a steak at Hy’s, or at least chomp into a burger. It has a nice rich filling taste. There is a mild caramel taste, and a slight aftertaste that is just a little nutty, not particularly pleasant if you are on an empty stomach like I am right now.
