Can't Help But Smile

Okay, so we didn't make the playoffs in our first year back. But the return of the Winnipeg Jets, after a fifteen year drought of NHL hockey, had to be one of the #1 feel-good stories of this past season.

I've lived in British Columbia for as many years as I'd lived in Manitoba (11), and have cheerfully rooted for the Vancouver Canucks & the BC Lions, but every time either the Jets or the Bombers play, I can't help it: I'm totally jazzed.

It just needed to be said.


  1. Jets?! Okay I'll let that slide, but the Bombers??? I guess everyone is entitled to a vice or two. ;)

  2. Vice? I thought that's what listening to old Lynyrd Skynyrd was... :)

    1. Let's call it a selection of vices then....mine includes Stryper, and The Echoing Green, and WW2 movies, and the occasional chick flick. And westerns.

    2. For what it's worth, Wendy & I saw Stryper the first time they played a festival in Canada. Third row centre. :)
