When my son gets older I plan on trying to hit all the rinks at least once before I die, I think I am starting with Winnipeg.

I hope you have a good time tonight, and don't get any abuse from any fans (good natured heckling maybe, abuse, no).

A big shout out to PS241 (Brad) as well. You are quite the ambassador. Great job man.
Yeah,no kidding.Awesome job!!!!

Just got back from our "Information Show" interview on CBC Radio.

This morning was rough lol. Brad made sure that we had enough good Canadian beer in us last night at Moxie's. I woke up with quite a headache this morning! That and the fact that I'm still on West Coast time made for an interesting morning. Also, as a tip for you all, when the vending machine holds on to your Tylenol after you paid $5, kicking it doesn't work :-). I'm $10 deep into Tylenol today lol.

We were so tired at 7:45 this morning that we forgot to take a picture of ourselves in the CBC studio lol. I'm kicking myself for that, it's not like that's a normal thing for us.

It was great to meet everyone at the tavern last night. We made a lot of great memories.

Brent, come on out to San Jose and I'll find a nice $60 lunch somewhere for us ;-) Thank you, that was great.

Brad, I cannot say Thank You enough times. We're a couple of nobodys and you spoiled the crap out of us...treated us like foreign ambassadors or something. Seriously man, thank you. You've got two more friends for life! I don't know that we could match our experience here for you in San Jose, but when you come out, we're sure to have a great time.

We have one more follow up interview with Dave from Illegal Curve, then a nap and it will be time to start heading home.

To all of our Winnipeg family, we love you guys! We felt like we finally came home over the last few days. You should be proud of your culture and you should boast about the energy you all have for the Jets in this town. It's truly amazing. The Jets are right where they're supposed to be.

Mike and Bryan I have no idea how you guys did a 7:45 am interview

and Peter the 8:30 meeting would have been a challenge for me today. I haven't shut a bar down in a long time so that was unique. I think I was over served last night but I won’t know for sure until I completely sober up today

Bryan and Mike you guys were a pleasure to hang out with and I really enjoyed meeting allot of the boys from the Board as well. cool to put faces and names to our web identities.........safe to say we are a rag tag (ok me anyways) group that is as eclectic and varied as any group can be that are drawn together by our common love of hockey...................and beer

you brought a unique energy to our section and I had as much fun as one can have minus the buzz kill of watching our team get shut out! Lots of laughs last night

Haha I don't know how we did it either. Mike almost made me go by myself!

He was a crabapple this morning. We were both dying!!!

I'd upload more pics, but apparently I've hit my attachment storage quota here.

Haha, can always upload to imgur.com and check "Group Images into Album" and then send us the link to all of them.

The conclusion of the journey to Winnipeg of the traveling Sharks fans



We had a chance to get their final thoughts in this Q & A about the game, the crowd and the people of Manitoba.

To read the Q & A click here.

Once again a real pleasure meeting and writing about you guys. Told the TSN guys about it today so perhaps you will get a mention. Wish I would have done so yesterday.
