Mr. Brady Says… Something About Hockey

 

The season following the first two, the Summer Olympics in 1976 in Montreal and the Winter Olympics in 1988 in Calgary, those cities’ respective hockey teams won the Stanley Cup; the Montreal Canadiens (’76-’77 season), and the Calgary Flames  (’88-’89 season).

After the city of Vancouver hosted the Winter Olympics in 2010, the Canucks made it to the ’10-’11 Stanley Cup Finals, forcing a full seven game series.

During which Vancouver choked, scoring only eight goals over the course of the series against the Bruins’ twenty-three.

And then their whiny fans burned the city down.


This episode of Mr Brady jinxing the Cup for Vancouver is brought to you by the Douchebag Association of America.


This knowledge drop was actually written a full week before Vancouver pussied out, but was not put up specifically to avoid jinxing the team.  After all, I’m from Buffalo, so jinxing is taken very seriously.  If I’m in the bathroom when my team scores, I have to stay in the bathroom the rest of the game, you don’t mess with the universe.
