Bono Hitches A Ride In BC

If you saw someone that looked like Bono on the side of the road with his thumb out would you really think it was him?  The U2 lead singer is thankful that Edmonton Oiler forward Gilbert Brule did.  Brule, out for a drive Tuesday (5/30) with his girlfriend at he wheel in Vancouver, spotted Bono and told her to turn around so they could pick him up.  The U2 front man and a member of his entourage had gone for an afternoon stroll in West Vancouver and got caught in a rainstorm.  Bono was so thankful for the lift that he invited Brule and his girlfriend to be his guests at the Edmonton U2 concert the following night - an offer Brule was willing to give-up his tickets to game one of the Stanley Cup final in Vancouver so that he and Kelsey Nichols could fly back to Edmonton for the Wednesday concert.  Bono even gave the couple a shout-out between songs during the band's set at Commonwealth Arena.
