History of the Hockey & High Heels Swag-Off

Pitting souvenirs, merchandise and general swag items against each other was born during the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs. My home team, the Vancouver Canucks didn’t make the playoffs, and I needed something to do, so I followed the playoff series matching up team swag corresponding to each round.
