In light of the Stanley Cup rivalry between Nashville and Vancouver, Rebecca sent Music City a missive, asking if we wanted to make some sort of wager on the playoffs' outcome. "I was wondering if you would be interested in this friendly challenge leading up to tomorrow's first game of the Canucks/Predators series," she wrote.
This politely worded Canadian aggression will not stand. Yes, Miss 604, we accept your "friendly challenge." The terms, agreed upon by our dueling partner in the godforsaken frozen North — OK, the lushly green, conifer-scented, beautifully landscaped North — are as follows: The blog from the winning team's city will receive a hotly coveted, generously apportioned, lavishly assembled (yet small enough to sneak through Customs) package of goods from the losing city's hometown.
So give us some tips on what local foodstuffs we might include — y'know, in this package we'll never have to send. (Scene photographer Eric England has already thoughtfully made the first suggestion: an open can of 200-proof Davidson County WHOOP-ASS!!!) And what Canadian specialties might we expect? Alas, peameal bacon sandwiches are more of a Toronto thing, and poutine doesn't really travel.
