Canucks-Capitals: A Special Night When the Stars Come to Town

The buzz started early in the week, with Ovie coming to town and arriving here in Vancouver three days before the game.

Hoards lined up to see him, take photos, get his autograph, as The Bay snuck that one in without most of the town knowing. Just as well, as The Bay would have had their hands full with the crowds this guy attracts.

This guy has turned into rock-star status and why not—he’s a complete package.

By game time, the hum had grown to a reverberating buzz in GM Place. This was a game that I had picked out when the schedule was released and made sure I got to attend. Having season tickets, that was not going to be a problem.

This atmosphere was no different than when “Sid the Kid” visited us last year, and it’s always such a complete difference in watching these stars in person than on a TV screen.
