Well, how much has changed since my last post? The Canucks played Schneider as I wished in game 6 (but still lost). Then Luongo played in a game 7 victory, in what was called one of the biggest sporting events in Vancouver history.
I, like everybody else has some latent superstition that surfaces during stressful situations like these. I too, have that desperate need to imagine that I have some control over this gut wrenching heart attack inducing playoff series. Luckily one day before the game, it came to me!!!
I figured out why the Canucks were losing games! I believe it was the Big Rock Curse.
Yes, that’s right, its because I was drinking beer from Alberta!
To remedy the situation I put my team Canada t shirt under my Kesler jersey and freely drank as much as I could from my GIB taster pack until Alexandre Burrows scored, just as I was finishing a bottle of GIB Brockton IPA.
Yup, all. Me baby;)
All kidding aside, after picking the empty bottle up from across the room, from the spot to which it was launched during my celebrations, I decided to save the bottle and put it “straight to the pool room” as they say. I look back fondly, just as Burrows probably has his puck labeled with hockey tape, I have my bottle to forever remember my contribution.
Regardless, this beer is a favourite in my house, and well worth the 5/5 score on any day. I was in no condition for tasting notes, but if you want some, check out my previous Brockton IPA review here.
