Buffalo Wild Wings | World Cup of Hockey

Last updated on November 6th, 2020 at 01:55 am

It’s an undisputed fact that Canada’s Hockey Nation. I didn’t grow up with it myself, but Canada deeply respects its hockey—it even runs through the veins of those who’ve never touched a rink! And so, one should never underestimate our sporting culture and how rabid our fans can get when it comes to the fastest game on earth!

Which is why you shouldn’t watch it alone.

To celebrate the sport that whips us all into a frenzy, Buffalo Wild Wings invited me to check them out during the World Cup of Hockey.

But I couldn’t make it—being a family man means carving out family time, so I wasn’t leaving on a Saturday for anything short of the Rapture ????

Good thing I knew a hockey fan or two willing to take my place!

Welcome to 2015!

A week in and I’m already a little behind, trying to put the finishing touches on The 2015 100 while a major project at the 9-5 threatens to encroach on my personal time and is making the juggling act harder than ever. Sarah sees me at it nightly, piles of notes strewn about the desk as I struggle to mould it all into coherent thought, slowly shaping into the kind of posts I love writing. It’s taxing work, but ultimately worth it to look back later, proud of what I put down on paper.

However, though my life’s currently mired in 7-hour meetings and documentation that just won’t quit, my first week of 2015’s been pretty decent, opened with some excellent brunches and promising new relationships and opportunities for the year ahead.

But in these first 7 days, one of the most amazing things to happen was finding a new appreciation for a sport I never much followed before — hockey.

A Little #CANvsSWE Tweet!

#100HappyDays Day 13 was a screenshot of this tweet:

I made it this morning during the Canada vs. Sweden game for the Men’s Hockey gold medal game at the 2014 Winter Olympics, when the score was up 3-0 for the Canadians in the third period, making it rather clear that our boys were coming home with gold medals. Despite the nation being up earlier than they likely are on a Sunday and glued to the TV, the tweet performed better than I could’ve imagined, with 31 retweets and 12 favourites, one from none other than the head of Twitter Canada, Kirstine Stewart!

#100HappyDays—Day 13—2nd for Best Personal Blog in the Canadian Blog Awards

Couple that with a second-place finish among the 24 nominated in the Canadian Blog Awards’ “Best Personal Blog” category, and it’s been a pretty good day!

#100HappyDays Day 13/100—succès!
