I was horribly anxious yesterday. By afternoon, I literally felt sick to my stomach. I don’t know if it was because I was worried for this game based on the results of Monday. But I generally feel this way when I consider it an important game. I know it was only game 4 but I felt like it was important to see how we responded to Monday’s game.
I guess I might have had a reason for the anxiety. We lost the game. But I think we lost more than the game…. or at least I did. I lost the faith that people of Vancouver would stick by their team. More and more people were throwing themselves off the wagon that they were barely holding onto in the first place. I supposed I shouldn’t be surprised. This is what supposed fans do in this city.
But maybe that is a good thing that they have abandoned ship? Maybe it is the die hard fans of the Vancouver Canucks who have believed in this team for so long that will lift the Canucks up and propel them forward. Propel them to play like they have throughout the playoffs. Like they played in games 1 & 2 of this series.
We know they can play better. We know they are tired and beaten up but I also believe they have what it takes to win just two more games. To win the cup for their city and for the fans who love them the most.
