Live for the Weekend

This weekend was really exciting for me. Since I didn’t start school this week, I had a little more extra time off. I wanted to do SOMETHING. I won a contest on Twitter which allowed me to go to Maxim Lapierre’s signing at the Canucks Team Store. That was really exciting. Unfortunately, I had to go alone. When I was on my way home, I was told that Alex Burrows was doing a signing ten minutes away from my house! So I made my way over there only to find out that you had to purchase something from the store that was hosting the signing in order to get a ticket to meet Alex Burrows. I was pretty bummed.

The day after didn’t slow down with meeting of impressive people. At the Giants game, it was Cody Franson night and he was in attendance! I go to meet him as well as Olympic figure skater Patrick Chan! I also ran into Brian Burke and Pat Quinn. I was in awe that night.

I also had a shift at the clothing store I work at on Saturday, and an early Giants game on Sunday. It was a jam packed weekend, and I had a great time.

If you read anything I ever post on the internet, then you probably know that I absolutely love hockey. This week I got to meet one of the greatest legends in the game, Mr. Hockey himself! If you don’t know who that is, I’m talking about Gordie Howe! He’s was super nice and funny.

Also, one of my favourite players (Sam Gagner) on my favourite team (Edmonton Oilers) got 8 points in one game! He got all three stars of the game and tied a record that Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey hold. I was so amazed and excited. And two days later (today) he got 3 more points in a 4-4 game. He then scored in the shootout! This is a really exciting time! Haha.
