So Saturday night was the 5th Vancouver Nucks Misconduct Meetup and as expected, it was a roaring good time. Good beer, good people, good hockey; everything one needs to properly take in a hockey game in this fine city. Also it was Yankee Canuck's birthday on Friday so we also drank in his honour. Seeing as these meetups seem to be growing in popularity and just seem to be getting better everytime, I think a playoffs meetup (or four) are forthcoming. A couple people suggested one for each round so that might be a possibility. Let's get there first though. But before we go into the veritable hell that is the Stanley Cup Playoffs, we have some pictures of some drunk Nucks Misconduct and Twitter folks watching an awesome hockey game at St. Augustines on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. How about that Andrew Ebbett eh? Andrew and I knocked over both our chairs and spilled his beer everywhere when Ebbett scored in overtime.
Here is the ever elusive VancityDan, I think he was telling us about how Kassian is going to be a good player for us:
Look after the jump for more pictures
Here is Twitch and Dan. I think Twitch is drunk, judging from his gleeful face:

Group shot of the entire table, pretty good looking crew if you ask me:
So once again the Nucks Misconduct meetup was a resounding success. Beers were drank, laughs were had, issues (named the readiness of Chris Tanev, the goalie rotation in the playoffs and how San Jose manages to fuck it up every year) and a very entertaining hockey game was enjoyed by all. Playoffs meetups are essentially a must now. We did one last year in the SCF (Game 2) and it was an experience like no other. I'll be making posts about those playoffs meetups within the next month or so. These meetups are too fucking awesome to not do more.
