Canucks fever


It's the talk of barber shops, small-town diners, dinner tables and big-city billboards.

My cousin's family built this "Canucks shrine" in a suburban Vancouver home. They bought the flags overhead, which are ordinarily fastened to cars; staff at the arena downtown gave away the towels now hanging in the windows; a local newspaper has been printing full-page pictures of players for subscribers.

For the last time, British Columbia: yes, I hope the Canucks win.
