An excerpt from the pulpit of the Hockey Prophet:
And arise from the ashes of the spring they shall. Skating forth, garbed in the new vestments of blue, green and white will our beloved Canucks once again pit themselves against the tide of teams that shall stream forth in multitude against them. Led by the one called a-vee, our warriors of the ice will do battle. But alas, the weak hearted need faith. Faith in the system, and faith in the hearts of those who skate forth to entertain us. And entertain us they shall, those warriors on skates, for it is their destiny.
please read aloud now with me as we recite the hockey prayer:
'Gods of hockey, we call to you.
Our sticks are by our sides.
We seek a life of honor, free from all false pride.
We shall shoot the puck, with a mighty slap,
And bodycheck with vigor, fore and back.
