Sports a “Maine event” for Rachel Nichols of Continuum

Here’s the column I wrote on the charming and funny Rachel Nichols of the new series Continuum, which debuts Sunday, May 27 on Showcase:

In the column, we joke about how Rachel plays a cop who travels back in time in Continuum, and since the show is set and shot in Vancouver, wouldn’t it have been great had her character been able to go back and stop the hockey riot last year. As it turns out, Rachel is a big sports fan:
“The only problem is, I’m from Maine, so technically speaking, prior to arriving here (in Vancouver), I was a (Boston) Bruins fan. Because we adopt, we don’t have any of our own teams, so it’s Celtics, Patriots, Red Sox and Bruins. I’m a huge, huge football fan, but I had never been to a hockey game. Now that I’ve been here, and I’ve been to, I think, six hockey games, and the last time I was right against the glass, I’m actually a Canucks fan now. Don’t tell anyone in Maine.”
