~ And So It Begins ....

        Growing up as a female sports enthusiast, I often heard the words ” Girls don’t know sports”.   Well I beg to differ ! I may not know  some things a man would know, but I probably know many things he does not know ;) .  
        As an avid Canucks fan I tend to get into many discussions and debates about the Canucks  and while I do learn much from these discussions, I have also learned that it is always my male friends and acquaintances I am discussing with !   My female friends are usually phoning me, texting me and emailing me asking about a player, or when the next game is on , or to ask me "what's icing?".  I have even had friends ask me to feed them Canucks information so they can at least understand a portion of what their significant other is rambling on about for 6-10 months out of the year . 
        I had been tossing around the idea of starting a Canucks blog to release my pent up Canucks fan energy but it wasn't until I put some hard thought into it that I realized just how much a womans perspective is needed in the Canucks fan world . 
And so it begins...



P.S. Any man reading this, thinking a 'womans perspective' means it will just be another pompom cheerleading chick blog, think again ;). I am well informed in the world of Canucks and the game of hockey, so rest assured ... I Can Hold My Own ! Non believers.. Try me ;) 


  1. and so it begins..
    I believe you are right.
    Also believe this is the perfect place for you to do just that.
    Best wishes to you always my lil Boo buddy..
    Hugs oxoxox

  2. Hey, Ellie.
    Not a female, but I just wanted to say good for you and good luck.

    Remember, hockey knowledge, especially that proclaimed by the self-appointed experts, is mostly just opinion and speculation. More important is whether it's discussed with flair and humour. In this I think you'll do fine.

  3. Ellie,

    Having had the pleasure of discussing hockey with you over the past couple of months, I know that you are very well versed on the game, and that you provide a unique and infectiously positive look on the game.

    Not only will you succeed in being a voice for many women like yourself that enjoy the Canucks and hockey so much, you'll be another great resource for us men to come to.

    I'm really excited to see how this plays out. I know you'll succeed.


  4. Nice job El... and... What NCF said...
