Rising to the occasion! Vancouver Canucks & Vancouver concert

This headline from yesterday's Okanagan Sunday was a perfect follow up to my last blog post: Crunch time: NHL playoffs = beards!

Unfortunately, our hometown Kelowna Rockets were eliminated from the WHL playoffs last night against the Portland Winterhawks, 4-2. That ended up being the best-of-seven series result as well. Seems to be a popular hockey score right now as the NHL playoffs tonight saw Philadelphia beat Buffalo, 4-2, and Boston do the same to Montreal.

Wow! The Vancouver Canucks could sweep the Chicago Blackhawks tomorrow! Cue the Sedin twins:

Vancouver's old NBA team won their first ever game in the NBA playoffs yesterday. Congratulations to the Grizzlies in Memphis! They won a showdown with the San Antonio Spurs, 101-98, with Toronto Raptors announcer Matt Devlin on the mic.

On the microphone singing in Vancouver last night, Robert Plant lets out 'The Voice' in Vancouver. Led it be...Led it be...Zeppelin...
