You Know You're a Caniac When.....Part three!

Recommended Posts

............when one of your Caniac Coworkers threatens to take some of the Canes Memorabilia from your office and hold it for ransom. Yesterday the Stanley Cup from Brindy's Bobblehead was missing and there was a ransom note on my desk, with the letters cut out of a magazine like on a crime show. :lol:

I just went and told him that I had posted his "crime" online and the police would be after him soon. Maybe I should get Ron the Ref to be his negotiator? :D

That would be a good skit for them to do on one of their little video shorts. CSI Raleigh.

YKYACW You're forced (dragged kicking & screaming) to go on a cruise you signed up for (no refund if I remember correctly) during the first two home games in 2006 vrs Montreal.... You suddenly realize you're surrounded by about a dozen Montreal fans from Canada and you're pretty much the only Caniac on board :blink: You wear your Canes sweater with pride.... You end up in the sportz bar on ship with said Montreal fans and the bartender says he can't get the hockey game on and all he will put on is soccer/european football :( You pull out 100$ bill (each Canadian matches it for over 1000$) put it on the bar and insist the bar keep put the game on.... He still won't get the game :angry: You consider jumping ship and swimming home :P

That reminds me of when i was in Vegas in May 2006 during the Stanley Cup run. I had been on a trip to the Grand Canyon all day, and when we landed back in Vegas I told the driver to drop me off at the first hotel he saw....... knowing that the Stanley Cup Round games would definitely be on TV somewhere inside the casino hotel. I ran into the Sahara Hotel, found their sports bar, and there's a lady sitting there in a Canes Jersey. She was from Raleigh, and she couldn't miss the game either. We were screaming like a couple of teenagers. So YKYACW you're in a sports bar 2500 miles away from Raleigh and run into another Canes Fan who can't miss the game.

LOL ^ that's awesome :lol:

You are in the Edmonton, Alberta airport waiting on a connection to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and before you get on your flight over 50 people are gathered around wanting to know everything there is to know about hockey in Raleigh and what it's like to be a Caniac. This was in 2007. True story.

When you're living in Europe during the '05-'06 season so you come home from work, take a nap and get up at midnight to watch the playoff games. (And stay up the rest of the night crying like a baby and drinking celebratory champagne with your husband after Game 7.)

When you take a loss of about $100 worth of tickets for a Kings of Leon concert because it turns out to fall on the evening of Game 7 against New Jersey. (Our friends, who don't follow sports at all, could NOT understand why in the world we would give up our concert tickets just to go to Carolina Ale House to watch an AWAY game on TELEVISION.) It was the best $100 we ever wasted because I would not trade anything for that experience of being outside on the Ale House lawn with my fellow Caniacs witnessing the Shock At The Rock.

When your husband comes home from work and says "How would you feel about moving to Belgium for Sept, Oct and Nov - all expenses paid - for my job?" and your first reaction is "But what about hockey season?" (This is our first year back in Raleigh after living abroad for a while and therefore, our first year as full STH's so I'm especially pumped for this season to get going!)

Sounds like you priorities are in order to me.

Ive been wondering in my head how that went down at the Ale house. Would you mind providing the juicy details?

Well, generally speaking - it was pure pandemonium. Total mayhem. Chairs flipped over, beers spilled, total strangers hugging and high fiving... I totally lost my voice and I'm sure many others did too. The best way to describe it is just an atmosphere of total euphoria :) People were hanging around afterwards because nobody wanted the night to end yet and I think we all just wanted to stick around and talk about what an amazing comeback it was.

The beer being spilled is just wrong. I'm good with the rest though. At least I hope it was domestic mainstream beers that were wasted and not the good stuff.
