The Stanley Cup final is something that does not come to Vancouver all that often. It is a time to celebrate, a time to rejoice, a time to spend with friends. And then there is the other side. You would think that Vancouver Canucks’ fans would be used to losing by now, but now. The Stanley Cup game 7 loss to Boston is nothing more than an excuse to break shit.
Shame on you Vancouver!
I am a Canucks Fan. I am a Vancouver fan. I am a Canada Fan. I am a Hockey Fan.
If this happened during the Olympics a mere 14 months ago I would consider saying that I was ashamed to be associated with Canadians. This is the result of a loss. This is a shameful act of defiance and utter disregard for everything that is Canadian.
Here are two photos for a shift. I have posted tow to try and add a little bit extra enthusiasm and expression to the post.
CANADA WINS GOLD IN MEN’S HOCKEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Something weird is happening and images are not displaying correctly… Not really sure about that?
Anyway, we will try and get this one to show up. This is the light show for the Olympics behind the Burrard St Bridge next to Granville Island in Vancouver.
hmmn, looks like it worked…. stupid wordpress…
I head on down to Yaletown’s Livecity venue recently for a free Olympic concert. This is Sam Roberts and Max of The Arkells singing. Great Concert! Can’t wait to go back on Wednesday for Damian Marley.
Here is another firework shot from the opening ceremonies. Yesterday’s photo was taken with a 10-22 mm lens while this was with a 50mm. Two very similar shots that turned out quite differently.
Okay, I know this doesn’t fit into the photo-per-day theme but I wanted to post a few photos from the torch relay that may not be worthy of daily status but portray the excitement that the Olympics brings to Vancouver!
More spring flowers have popped up in my backyard. It will be a beautiful Olympic opening ceremony tomorrow… Maybe not the best though, it should probably be a little bit cooler?
With the Vancouver Winter Olympics kicking off this Friday we are all still thinking about skiing, toboggoning, snowball fights and Ice Skating. No wait… It is February and the flowers in my backyard are blooming.
