Default Bozolicious About The Canucks - June 2011

Nearly everyone and their dog is jumping on the Canucks bangwagon these days - and for good reason too. I remember the final of '94 quite well, some of it anyways after I woke up in the drunk tank on a few occasions.

During the Olympics last year someone strung up a Canadian flag on a bluff on Grouse Mountain. This got me thinking (slowly) and when a old banner came my way I came up with a plan. Paint was mixed and applied (sloppily), allowed to dry and some clothesline rope was procurred (you don't need it right now - it's raining) and fearing that might not be enough I talked Grachman/Greenhorn into lending me some poly rope.

Finishing work for the day I headed by 8 different buses through 8 different cities (should have read the schedule better as I did a side trip to Richmond and Maple Ridge) to finally end up at Grouse Mountain.

I won't go into detail about what happened next, a trail was found and followed and I noticed a bunch of signs that I had trouble reading. After all that I went mostly upwards and got to this bluff that would probably offer up a good view on a nice day. This day was wet and cloudy and that was fine by me. After checking some things out I got to work.

The poly rope comes out.

Hmm...not quite long enough, so clothes line is also used.

Trying to obey this sign. The clouds mostly kept things under cover.

It was a bit slippery on some of the wet rock and a fall here would not end well. Taking a couple of breaks when the trams were running and working quickly when not I got the roping done and then had to quickly set up the banner. It's not that big but it's the best I can do and I can't afford a flag to wave like everyone else.

Yikes, it does look kinda small.

I think I'm quite artistic.

But I also think I'm quite good looking too.

Note, similarities to anyone else on this site are purely coincidental and most definitely fictional.

Well, the ladies say I do have nice legs.

It was starting to get a bit dark by now and I left my creation behind and continued back up the bluff. At least the rain had eased off for the last while. I hate it when my Homer Simpson cotton t-shirt gets wet - it itches.

Slippery rocks all over the place.

A bit further up I get a nice view towards the city.

Grouse Mountain are on the band wagon too - they got flags on their trams and other places.

I got into some snow near the top but didn't sink in much. Getting to the chalet area it's nearly dark and I wasn't impressed that it costs $10 for a downhill tram ride. Thing were clear on the way down but it was kind of dark. I could just make out the banner on the bluff west off the tramway. It looked really small from here though - hope someone can see it okay in daylight. No picture here as I didn't want to raise any suspicions and I was already getting some funny looks at my hair.

Going home went much better as I got the Sky Train back to Surrey but I did end up taking the Canada Line to Richmond first. Then I heard some assholes stole the Canucks jerseys from the Lions Gate Bridge Lions - not very nice.

1 more win...

Bozo, this one of your best efforts ever! But if it's sunny next week, how are you going to dry your clothes? Everyone, let's take up a collection to buy Bozo some new clothesline rope! And you know, you are pretty good looking too[^]

Supporting a hockey team is always a great excuse to leave your garbage in the mountains.

I'm sure Bozo never left his garbage there, even if he said he did. I really enjoyed this read, my heart feels a lot lighter now, thanks Bozo.

This "garbage" can easily removed once the playoffs are over. That can't be said for the amount of trash you've posted on this website.

Oooohhhh snap. You have 19 posts <s>(unless you are Simon), </s>I have way more positive contributions than that. Feel free to focus on the negative aspects. Keep puffing out those imaginary lats.
