PLAYOFFS! AND A TOKYO POLICE CLUB CONCERT GIVEAWAY!

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Yes folks, it’s that time of year. It’s the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. And hopes are certainly high for the Vancouver Canucks this year. There’s so much to say about this that I literally cannot find the words to describe how excited I am about the upcoming Vancouver Canucks playoff game. Round 1, Game 1 TONIGHT vs. the Chicago Blackhawks. YES!

So I shall sum it all up in just one phrase…

Go Canucks GO!

GO CANUCKS GO!

CANADA-USA CURLING AND TRIPLE GOLD CLUB AT THE HOCKEY HOUSE PHOTOS

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Canadian Men's Curling Team

On Monday we watched the Men’s Canada-USA Curling game at the Olympic Curling Centre.  It was an intense game.

Norway Curling Pants

Of course, no curling blog post would be complete without a photo of the famous Norway curling pants. They have two different variations… these red ones and also the white ones with blue/red checkers. Awesome.

Go Canada!

We had a blast. I honestly think that it’s almost more fun to watching curling live than hockey. *gasp* Yep, I said it.

Canadian Men's Curling Team

It was great watching Kevin Martin and his team beat the US, especially after losing the hockey game the previous night to the US team.

Molson Hockey House

Afterwards we headed over to the Hockey House where we spent the entire day with a group of 9 friends.

Our group with the hosts

We managed to take tons of group photos, including this one with the hosts of the Hockey House. Awesome white suits. P.S. Check out my awesome 2010 commemorative hockey stick (I got it signed by a ton of people!)…

Cam Neely

Cam Neely was also there… what a legend!

A band performing In front of the sign

We spent most of the afternoon watching the on-stage entertainment and wandering around the pavilion taking photos of everything.

Played lots of bubble hockey

Oh, and lots of bubble hockey was played.

The group with clappers We took a group photo...

We made sure to get clappers, and took this group photo…

... and made it into 9 pins!

… which we loved so much that we got them made into 9 souvenir pins! Haha.

Me and the Molson babes

I loved getting a photo with the sexy Hockey House babes.

Goal!

It was so much fun to watch the women’s Canada-Finland semifinal there… we won handily, but every goal was a huge celebration.

The Triple Gold Club Presentation

And the main event… we got to watch the Triple Gold Club celebration on stage. The Triple Gold Club presentation is for the 22 players who have achieved the three most important accomplishments in hockey… winning the Stanley Cup, winning Olympic gold, and winning the IIHF world championships. As you can imagine, this is an extremely prestigious award and very, very few players ever win this.

Vladislav Tretiak, Rene Fasel, Gary Bettman

I love this photo of Vladislav Tretiak, Rene Fasel, and Gary Bettman. It’s kind of ominous… but cool. They did the presentation to all the players.

Peter Forsberg

Peter Forsberg was there..

Alexander Mogilny

… and Alexander Mogilny…

Joe Sakic

And Joe Sakic!

Sakic is one of my faves. My old bedroom at home still has his posters plastered all over the place.

Rob Blake

Rob Blake too..

Brendan Shanahan, Joe Sakic, Rob Blake

Here’s Brendan Shanahan, Joe Sakic, and Rob Blake on stage.

Five Alarm Funk blew off the roof

At the end of the night, the band Five Alarm Funk took the stage and they seriously blew the roof off the place. They were a lot of run.

Our group with Five Alarm Funk Our group with Five Alarm Funk

We made sure to take lots of photos with them when they came off the stage and partied with us.

DJ Skratch Bastid

DJ Skratch Bastid closed off the night and he was really good. He was great at reading the crowd and reacting accordingly.

Yeah, we had a ridiculously good time.
