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!

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.


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.

I am super excited to finally announce that I have been selected as the Club Bud Party Crasher! Wohoooo!

Club Bud is going to be hosting some of the most exclusive parties here in Vancouver during the Olympics so I am very pumped to be able to attend some of them. The other Party Crasher that has been selected is Chris Walts, so you can follow him and follow me on Twitter to get all the updates from the parties when we attend. I also understand that Miss604 is going to be attending some of the parties as well.

The Commodore Ballroom is going to be transformed into Club Bud, so it’s going to be an awesome venue. It’s about 19,000 square feet and they are expecting over 1,000 celebrities and athletes to attend the parties. It’s going to be seriously epic!

In other news, Allan and I got to attend the Team Canada vs. Sweden Women’s Hockey Game at UBC Thunderbird arena.

The Women's Sticks

We had really amazing seats… Row 1 right beside the Canadian player’s bench!

Kim St. Pierre giving us a smile

The game was a bit of a blowout, but we had an amazing time cheering on our team and it was impressive to see the skill level of the Canadian team.

She shoots... She scores!

We ended up seeing tons of goals.

Meghan Agosta

Meghan Agosta had an incredible game and ended up with a hat trick.

Hayley Wickenheiser

Hayley Wickenheiser is an icon, and I loved getting to see her get a goal and see her lead the team.

Kim St. Pierre smiles at the bench

Kim St. Pierre watches happily as the clock counts down to zero and Canada wins! Kim St. Pierre shut Sweden out for two periods, and then they let Charline Labonte play a period. Kim was such a sweetie on the bench… she smiled for photos and even made sure she wasn’t blocking our view during the game! Thanks Kim!

Team Canada celebrates their win

Here’s Team Canada celebrating.

Little girl stoked to catch a stick

This little girl and a couple other kids managed to get some sticks from the players. I thought it was awesome they took the time to throw their sticks over the glass.

The crowd goes wild!

Canada ended up winning 13-1. I am really happy that we got to experience women’s hockey at the Olympics and I can’t wait to see them progress throughout the tournament!
