Yesterday afternoon my Grandpa invited me over for a sleepover to watch the World Series Game 6, and the Canucks game that followed against the Carolina Hurricanes. I was thrilled! I sat down in front of the big TV with my grandpa and watched my favourite baseball team get clobbered only 2 innings into the game. It was an early downer, but I still enjoyed watching the three innings we did watch together. A more than half an hour second inning proved to be the first and last of our hopes of the San Francisco Giants winning the World Series that night. When we turned the game off in the third inning the score was 7-0!
So, on to the Canucks game. Just to let you know we were slightly aware that next door to the Canucks vs. Hurricanes game at Rogers Arena, there was a friendly (exhibition) soccer match for the 2015 Women’s World Cup. It was Canada against Japan at BC Place! So, back to the Canucks game. the Canucks played really well during the first and second and had a 3-0 lead heading into the third period. We decided to watch the end of the Canada vs. Japan soccer match during the break. The score was 1-1 the last time we checked on the game, but now, with about 20 minutes left in the game, It was 2-1 Japan. We watched everything on the edge of our seats. We thought we had witnessed history when we saw Canada tie the game with seconds remaining… and we did… but in a very different manner than we thought. With about ten seconds left, Japan scored on a breakaway, winning the game 3-2. Since we weren’t particularly attached to that game (mind you we were still disappointed), we made jokes all through till we had to go to bed and then in the morning. The Canucks ended up winning their game 4-1, which is why I commented later that we saw everything. We saw the downer, the win, and the extremely suspenseful and funny.
