The trade-off is, Av, that Alex Burrows, Max Lapierre and Ryan Kesler just might...
So I took my buddy to Tojo's on Broadway here in Vancouver for some really good sushi and they sat us at the bar directly in front of the TV so we could watch the game... Our waiter, "Alex" (he was very careful to pronounce that carefully) welcomed us to sit and stay through the game. One of the hosts kept coming over and watching the game with us... He was clearly rooting for Detroit. "Ret's go! C'mon Detroit! Shit! (Shoot!) Berry gooda - berry gooda!"
Me: So, who do you want the Canucks to play next?
Host: Detroit. Orda (Older) an' nutta sbeeg (and not as big).
Me: Do you ever get any of the Canucks come here to eat?
Host: Oh yes! Ryan Kesra, Ehruff, Edrah, Samuer-san, Jannik Hansen... Kesra raika rots of sushi - berry much! Rongo asso come but he raika Itarryan so he go to Cioppinno's in Yerrtown (Yaletown)...
Me: What about from other teams?
Host: Oh yes! Darras Starzu, Erray Kings, Cargary Frems, Edmonton Oyras... Jarome Iginrah - he berry nice man... Berry nice. First roundu, Marian Hossa, he come heara afta Game 5 - I say, too bad we don't see you afta Game 6! He say, we back Game 7! Ret's go, Detroit! Shit! One obba time (Want overtime)!
Me: Wow... How long have you been watching hockey?
Host: 13 yees... First three, run (learn), rast ten watch Canucks - numba one!
On the plane to Vancouver, my buddy also sat next to an older Desi couple who were stunned that my friend didn't watch hockey whatsoever...
