Toronto Maple Leafs VS Vancouver Canucks 2010

So I attended the Toronto Maple Leafs game on Saturday, December 18th in Vancouver with my best friend.  The Leafs were playing against the Vancouver Canucks (obviously.)  I proudly wore my Beauchemin #22 jersey to the Sharks Club before and to the game.  I cheered my heart out, and voice (I lost my voice) for the Leafs, but they ended up loosing  4 to 1.

It is an amazing experience to go to a Toronto Maple Leafs game in Vancouver because the stadium is packed and the fans are even for both teams, if not more for Toronto.  The Vancouver Canucks fan are really mean to Leafs fans, they really hate Toronto.  I’m not sure why, never will, but that’s the first thing I learned when I moved to Vancouver.  I wish the Leafs came to Vancouver more often, but its only every few years since they switched the schedule a few years back.

I would pay any price I have to in order to get to a Leafs game in Vancouver.  This time my ticket only cost me $189 and I was 25 rows behind the net.  Last time I went in 2008 (that’s the last time the Leafs were in Vancouver) I paid $200 for the very last row in the arena.  I lucked out this year because I got in on the presale and I didn’t have to buy from someone on Craigslist.

I got a free Leafs hat from the fan beside me because he gave up on the Leafs.  I would NEVER do that. haha.  Even though the Leafs lost the game I still walked out of the arena with Beauchemin #22 on my back proud to be a fan! GO LEAFS GO!

By the way, I have the Beauchemin jersey just because we have the same last name and my brother plays in the Junior B, and they both wear #22.  He is not my necessarily favorite player hehe.
