Canucks Sighting on How I Met Your Mother
Last night’s episode added to the pantheon of Canucks reference in How I Met Your Mother history, with Robin rocking the simple bedtime tee while casually sipping from a Canada mug. Real subtle, writers. We get it, the character is Canadian, like the actress who plays her, Vancouver-born Colbie Smulders.
To read a far more extensive account of the comedy’s obsession with the Vancouver Canucks, you can read this detailed piece I wrote when HIMYM was still relevant. They say the show is coming to a close next year though, hopefully not like the Canucks window to win a Stanley Cup.
