Rest in Peace… LUC BOURDON

This BLOG is primarily focused on the lighter side of sports. My weekly cartoons take a look at things from a different angle and try to comment on a given issue or find the humor in others. Sports, for so many reasons, can be taken far too seriously and I try to have fun with that.

Today’s news of Luc Bourdon’s sudden and tragic passing really puts all of that into perspective.

Luc was a great young defenceman with the Vancouver Canucks, an up and coming talent who was just beginning to find his stride. My thoughts are with his family, friends and Canucks fans across the globe. I’m sure all sports fans will join me in saying too soon Luc, too soon.

UPDATE: Look for my StraightJAB tribute to Luc next Thursday in June 5th’s Georgia Straight.

Luc Bourdon
RIP Luc…

  1. The Bourdon and Cherepanov accidents are tragic, for their families and the NHL. The question is whether these accidents can be prevented in the future. Maybe better testing on the NHL’s part for the Cherepanov situation and educating the players (youngsters) on dangerous activities such as motorcycle etc… Just seems like more should/can be done to prevent tragedies like these from occuring in the future….
