For the 2015-2016 NHL season, I’ll be doing regular video blogs chronicling the Vancouver Canucks’ season.
The Vancouver Canucks turned over about one-third of their roster to start off the 2015-2016 NHL season.
Brandon Sutter, Brandon Prust, Matt Bartkowski, Adam Cracknell, and rookies Jared McCann, Ben Hutton, and Jake Virtanen all made the team.
So, of course, we decided to sing about it.
On October 3, 2015, my work colleague and friend Erwin married beautiful Alexandria in London, Ontario. I was blessed to emcee the reception that evening, and as part of the program I presented the following story about Erwin and Alex: their meeting, the courting period, their dating, and the proposal.
The story of Erwin and Alex begins in March 2013 when Erwin sat across from me (and 3 others) in a boardroom in downtown Vancouver. We asked questions and he did his best to answer them.
One month later he was living in Vancouver and working at a new job. For a really good looking boss.
As I mentioned earlier, Erwin and Alex met in Saskatoon in January 2014 when they were both there for some youth ministry gatherings that had some really long names.
Alex’s first impression of Erwin was hardly a positive one. She found him abrupt, unapproachable, and standoffish. Pretty much everything you look for in a future husband.
