Like any great teacher-student relationship, that student usually must achieve his final triumph without his/her mentor. So this is how I have digested the events of our family’s loss. I am convinced that somehow, someway, the 32 years of our journey together, will culminate into one final moment — that moment being the day I can take Lord Stanley’s Cup back to that grassy knoll on Oliver Lake in Thunder Bay.
A great video of how towel power came to be...in hockey anyway. Did Roger Nielson / Canucks fans invent "towel power"? Not according to this article. While I hated the idea of "Thunder Sticks", the whiteouts from the Jets era (and others) and the other mass-color ideas for home games are great. Yet, (call me biased) towel power reigns supreme, especially at Canucks home games because it is such a big part of our history. Thank you Roger Nielson, R.I.P. Your legacy lives on. Tip to Dolemite at the CDC Forum for finding the clip.
