Fake Canucks Season

Update: For all Live Streaming Games, go HERE to watch: http://www.theprovince.com/sports/ho...ke_hockey.html

It's simple mindless fun, where usually 70-120 show up and watch fake hockey and basically try and deal with the depression of no hockey together. Production value is pretty good though IMO. We currently have some lag issues due to my internet provider lying about how much upload speed our plan has (supposed to be 2mbps, but in reality is 450kbps), but we are working on that.

For all previous Fake Sports Centre shows, in case you just want the fake highlights, please visit my YouTube channel! Yay! http://www.youtube.com/user/TheStanchion


Anyhoo, carry on, as you were.


Hey folks, I have started doing a Fake Canucks season that will mirror the games the Canucks should have been playing. I think some of you might get a kick out of it, so I thought I would post the video here:




Basically just a fun way to try and give us some Canucks action while the lockout drags on.

Yay! Or nay! Either or, tis up to you.

But if you don't like it, you're a big jerk. JERK!

I expected this to be hilarious much like everything else you do. But you have no enthusiasm in your voice, was hard to find it interesting or funny.

You should stick to photoshops.

EDIT: Yes i'm a jerk, deal with it.

You're providing PBP as well?

I'll definitely have to give this a view/listen at home.

Fake Kassian's looking really good. Hopefully he shows the same chemistry with the Sedins in real life.

I enjoyed watching it, thanks.

Might just be my intense craving for hockey but I found this pretty entertaining.

Are you planning on doing an entire fake Canucks season? Not to be a parabola but I think people would lose interest in that pretty quickly. Good work nonetheless.

Entire fake season, yeah, but each one won't be as long of a video. That one just took a while because I was adding commercials to it and stuff.

Things I plan on doing to keep it fun:

- Polls on if a trade that is offered to the Canucks should be accepted or not
- Holding some sort of contest to see who gets to set the Canucks lineup for the night "Coach the Team for the Day!"
- Couple of other things up my sleeve if it works out.


So yeah, I hope I don't end up doing a whole season (as that means the lockout went on too long) but I hope I can keep it fresh enough for a 1-6 week stint if need be. If I feel it's dragging on, I will pull back. Worst case scenario, it's pretty easy for people to skip out on watching a 4 minute video every other day if they grow tired of it, I won't spam promote any of them after this initial one.

It's a work in progress!

Up until reading this thread I was doing a great job of suppressing my feelings on NHL hockey this season, but after realizing that if it weren't for the lockout pre-season games would have already begun I got sad.

I liked it because I didn't realize how great the new generation of EA hockey games are... Pretty incredible.

The play-by-play needs some early, cheezy Don Taylor EA sports play-by-play quotes... for nostalgic reasons... "I'm just a boy scratching an itch"... Homage to the early innovators...

Your dry humour was nothing short of fantastic.

The presentation could use some work, especially with fading out the game sounds into your voice.

But Good start.

It was pretty good, especially with editing. Look forward to watching the whole season if it does come. At least I'll get a fake taste of my fake canucks :p

Enjoyed, really brought back those frustrated emotions that the Canucks so often inspire.

That was my biggest frustration, was the in and out of the mic going off. I don't have an expensive set up, so it stands out. Ugh.

I was pondering putting a quiet low techno beat in the background like they do on Sportsnet, to try and detract from the silence/mic stuff. I will work on it and see what I can do.


Thanks for the kind words everyone! Glad you got a kick out of it. God knows how long I can keep it up, but I will try!

And glad one person liked my more dry delivery, that's more of who I am in real life, so I stuck with that, rather than going all out over the top emotion crazy style. Stick to what you are and all that.

This is the closest we will see to actual hockey this year, ie 2012, so it still pisses me off that we lost! LOL

Loved it keep 'er coming.

Did I hear Kassian "Bernier'd" the puck wide? Cause I'm pretty sure I laughed too hard at that.

You know how much memory that would take up and how long it would take to put on YouTube?

Man I'm sick of this team being lead by the Sedins...

I know it's only pre-season but I think it's time for a change.
