The land of the reborn bird
Yes, Bert and Co. are now in ever warm (and dry... I could use more than this one day without rain) Phoenix, Arizona, prepared to dish out even more lumps to rookie head coach Wayne Gretzky. God, I can't wait until my first film tops the $100 Million domestic mark. Then I can take hockey sabbaticals. I guess I have to get cracking now. Don't worry. More news to come really soon.
As for the unfinished business, the Bert-accu-scoreTM for Thursday's match was 5-1 for Vancouver, whereas the actual mark was a closer, but still favourable 3-2, with a little help from the referees, allowing a close call for a net off the posts, and another for a puck that may have trickled in, though not seen. Finally, the refs realize the Bertuzzi rule does not apply to THE WHOLE CANUCKS TEAM.
In unrelated newsTM, I spent three days working on a construction site, which will be a condominium high rise building. What I found really odd was that along with the "missing" thirteenth floor, there was no 4th, 14th, or 24th floors either. It seems that the Arabic character 4, which we use, is very similar to the symbol of death in the Chinese alphabet, and as such, is unlucky, and not used to mark floors here in Vancouver, as there is a large population from the Orient. But what I did find odd is that the number 22 is still included, because numerologically, it is also the number 4.
As such, to keep the two 2's from adding to four, 2 was subtracted from Vancouver's score, and two was added to San Jose's score (thus negating each other, and bringing balance), and giving us a score of...
Drum roll please...
Vancouver 3 San Jose 2
Which gives us...
Utter Golden PerfectionTM.
As for tonight, and Gretzky's school of hard knocks for coaching, Vancouver will enjoy the dryness, and less rain, and the Bert-accu-scoreTM for the game shall be
Canucks 6 Phoenix 2
