24 Hours Vancouver did a story on Boston Bruins fans in Vancouver. A reporter and photographer followed me on Granville St. for about 40 minutes on June 1, 2011. Here’s the story that ran on page 4 of the June 2nd edition.
Although I’m not one to seek attention, the entire experience was actually enjoyable. And while I did get negative AND positive feedback, I discovered that most Canucks fans just preferred to ignore me… Quite different from my experience in Chicago last year during the first round of the playoffs!
The writer did leave out several details, including why I’m a Bruins fan and how my wife – a long-time Canucks fan – bought me the #4 Bobby Orr Vintage jersey. And while I’m not thrilled about the use of the word “shame”, the story is what it is.
