Yesterday, almost everywhere I went, people were wearing Canucks jerseys or T-shirts. Everyone was in a terrific mood, anticipating the game, hollering 'Go Canucks Go' at the slightest prompt.
And then the game happened.
And they lost. A whopping 7-4.
This morning's newspaper made it clear: Vancouver's fickle fans have given up. The front page teaser says it all, "Painful post-season: One more loss and it's game over for the Canucks."
Even the car in the photo above, which was there for a couple of weeks, has now disappeared (for a new paint job?).
So hey, I have to wonder, if the fans have already given up, why shouldn't the team?
