    I'm in the process of planning my trip for next week. It seems that there is so much to do I'll definitely not be able to see it all. I thought I'd post some helpful links if any of you are heading to Vancouver. These links are for the free events/live sites/celebration sites:

    Vancouver Live City Sites (2 Sites)

    Richmond O Zone

    Surrey Celebration Site

    also, this map will come in handy:

    Events, venues and pavilions around Vancouver

    Events List

    And there is pin trading at the Edgewater Casino in the old Plaza of Nations across the street from BC Place Stadium, and at the Coca Cola Pin Trading Centre in The Bay downtown.

    Canada 4 - Norway 0. 3rd quarter.

    Can't wait until Canada and the USA play, although the USA will probably get beat.

    Excellent! There off to a good start. I hope they don't end up like in Torino. I wanted to pick up a Team Canada hockey jersey at The Bay, but all they have is small, and they're pricey too at $135!

    Go Scotty Go!

    The Olympic coverage is horrible. Between the horrible conditions and the worst coverage ever ...this is my least favorite Olympics.

    Music of the games:

    This album is available at HMV and features music from the Opening Ceremonies:

    Sounds of Vancouver 2010: Opening Ceremony Commemorative Album


    Looking at the track list I realized the tracks are slightly out of order from the way that they were performed. So for you diehards that like to collect Olympic Games music, here is the correct list:

    01. Fire On The Mountain – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra
    02. O Canada – Nikki Yanofsky
    03. Aboriginal Welcome – Singers and Drummers of Aboriginal Canada
    04. Parade of Athletes – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra
    05. Canadian Athletes – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra
    06. Bang The Drum – Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado
    07. Hymn To The North – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra feat. Donald Sutherland
    08. Sacred Grove – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra feat. Donald Sutherland
    09. Ordinary Miracle & Fantasy Ballet – Sarah McLachlan
    10. Rhythms Of The Fall – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra plus Various
    11. Who Has Seen The Wind – feat. Donald Sutherland
    12. Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell
    13. Storm – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra
    14. Peaks of Endeavour – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra
    15. We Are More – Shane Koyczan
    16. Hallelujah – k.d. lang*
    17. Raising Of The Olympic Flag – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra
    18. Olympic Anthem – Measha Bruggergosman
    19. Un peu plus haut, un peu plus loin – Garou*
    20. The Olympic Flame – The Vancouver 2010 Orchestra

    *Hallelujah available on k.d. lang’s album Hymns of the 49th Parallel
    *Un peu plus haut, un peu plus loin as performed by Garou will be available on the Closing Ceremony CD available March 1.

    There may be one track missing. There was one track that was looped during the Parade of Athletes, in addition to the Parade of Athletes song. It was a First Nations chanting/singing song with a new age sounding beat. I believe this was not the Aboriginal Welcome song. I may be wrong though, anybody know for sure?

    And for the Hockey fans, there is:

    Canada's Hockey Anthems: Sound of Vancouver 2010


    Track list is as follows:

    First Period:
    01. Naturally 7 – The Hockey Theme
    02. Nickelback – Burn It To The Ground
    03. The Tragically Hip – Fifty-Mission Cap
    04. Stompin’ Tom Connors – The Hockey Song
    05. KISS – Rock And Roll All Night
    06. Tom Cochrane & Red Rider – Big League
    07. Rednex – Cotton Eye Joe

    Second Period:
    08. 2 Unlimited – Get Ready For This
    09. Bachman-Turner Overdrive – You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet
    10. Iggy Pop – Lust For Life
    11. Quiet Riot – Come On Feel The Noize
    12. Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop
    13. Billy Talent – Nothing To Lose
    14. Trooper – Raise A Little Hell

    Third Period:
    15. Great Big Sea – Helmethead
    16. Barenaked Ladies – If I Had A $1,000,000
    17. Elvis Costello & The Attractions – Pump It Up
    18. Tag Team – Whoomp! There It Is
    19. Europe – The Final Countdown
    20. Steam – Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye

    Overtime:
    21. Alan Frew & Stephan Moccio – Free To Be (Canada’s Song)
    22. Iron Maiden – Run To The Hills

    And coming on March 1: Sounds of Vancouver 2010: Closing Ceremony Commemorative Album.

    Also available in stores like Walmart and on Amazon:

    1. I Believe (English Version) performed by Nikki Yanofsky
    2. I Believe (French Version) performed by Annie Villeneuve
    3. I Believe (Instrumental Version) performed by Stephan Moccio
    Video list

    Colbert meets 'ice-holes' face-to-face

    By: The Canadian Press
    Date: Wednesday Feb. 17, 2010 3:15 PM PT

    It seems we're no longer "ice-holes."

    American comic Stephen Colbert has been poking fun at Canadians in the lead up to the Winter Games but the talk show host now says Canadians are "friendly and very easy to pander to."

    I added another Olympic Games music album that's available in stores to this post:
    Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics -Feb 12-Feb 28, 2010-

    It's the single I Believe, the official CTV Olympic song.

    I also added links to helpful posts in the OP of this thread.

    And, I'm getting a little bit more excited for my trip to Vancouver. I'm actually heading down there after work on Saturday, so I'll have an extra full day (Sunday) to explore stuff around the downtown core. Hopefully I won't get stuck in mobs of people coming out of GM Place after Hockey games when I go onto the Skytrain.

    And I want to say congrats to Lindsey Vonn for winning the downhill. That was one heck of a run! I guess that ankle didn't hurt that much afterall.

    And I just noticed we got another silver! 500 meters women's short track skating. Congrats Marianne St-Gelais.
