Vancouver hockey fans have it pretty easy generally, aside from supporting a team that has never won the Stanley Cup. Even so, the Canucks have a faithful horde of supporters who sell out the arena, watch every game on TV, wear team jerseys and fly team pennants from their car windows. This year, the Canucks have played well, produced a winning season and the promise that this just could be the year. What's not to love?
But then we have in our midsts fans who simply cannot support the Canucks. Circumstances prevent them from rooting for their home team. I met one such person, who just happens to have a very good reason to cheer for the Black Hawks.
