Win Da Turd got its name from a twitter hashtag. Canucks forward Alex Burrows, when interviewed between the 2nd and 3rd period, has a habit of saying “We need to win the third”. With his French Canadian accent that comes out as “Win da turd”. Being that I’m partial to most French Canadian hockey players, am half French Canadian and married a French Canadian, I thought it was a good fit for a website featuring my insights, rants and raves on the NHL.

A thirty-something writer with a stand-up comedy past and a love of all things hockey. Happily married to a snarky French Canadian. Born in Montreal but currently living in Los Angeles, California. I also write for the Canucks Hockey Blog and you can read an interview they did with me here. Oh yeah and when hockey’s out of season, my husband and I head to Pamplona Spain to run with bulls. No biggie.
