Canada Jerseys – A MUST HAVE

Today the Canadian hockey team jerseys were unveiled, and damn do they look SWEET! The logo has changed and is no longer the Hockey Canada logo that was used for the last 14 years of international play. Within the central maple leaf crest there are smaller maple leafs, symbolizing the gold medal count for Canada’s men’s and women’s Olympic ice hockey and Paralympic ice sledge hockey teams. Other symbolism includes a hockey player with a stick in hand and two powerful First Nations icons — the thunderbird and eagle — supporting the central maple leaf. I am for sure getting one of these!

With a suggested retail price of $135, the Team Canada 2010 Olympic replica jerseys are available today in Nike stores across Canada, The Olympic Store at, Hudson’s Bay Company Bay stores, and later this fall at Olympic Stores in Vancouver, Whistler, and the Vancouver International Airport. They will also be sold in the Olympic Superstore at the Bay Downtown Vancouver and hockey venue concession stands operated at Games time.

Here’s 3 pictures of them:

We’re Goin’ to 2010!

As soon as Vancouver won the bid to host the Winter Olympics, I had this dream to attend. To bring you up to speed:

  • We (my mom, dad, and brother) are going to the Vancouver Winter Olympics from February 12 to 28, 2010!
  • We got 8 pairs of tickets (4 in the lottery, 4 in the public onsale on June 6, 2009)
  • We have tickets for speed skating (2x), short track, bobsled, skeleton, snowboard halfpipe, freestyle skiing aerials, and my pride and joy, men’s ice hockey – Canada vs USA!
  • Accommodation – Unsure, but family and friends’ places
  • Transportation – My mom and brother are flying; my dad and I are driving (long story, basically, I can’t fly)

We’re continuing to work out details as far as accommodation and transportation goes. Currently, we’re looking into buying a motorhome to drive out and back in.

Stay tuned for more updates!
