    Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics -Feb 12-Feb 28, 2010-


    Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics Feb 12-Feb 28, 2010
    Vancouver Paralympic Games Mar 12-Mar 21, 2010


    And so it begins with the lighting of the Olympic Flame tomorrow in Greece:

    The flame will spend 8 days in Greece, after being lit at the Temple of Hera in Olympia. It will then make it's journey over to Vancouver Island where the Canadian leg of the Torch Relay will begin in Victoria at Mile 0 of the Trans Canada Highway on October 30. View the interactive map here: Olympic Torch Relay Interactive Map : Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics


    I'll try and keep this thread updated from now on; up to, and including the games. For further info, check out the Vancouver 2010 website here: 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games Medals Results Schedule Sports : Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

    Check out how the medals will look, which were revealed just a few days ago: Vancouver 2010 Medals : Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

    Ok, today was just the rehearsal ceremony for the torch lighting. The actual ceremony is happening in less than 5 hours from now.

    Here's pics from today's rehearsal:

    I know Olympicnut and Grumpy4 are going. Not sure about anybody else.

    I'm looking forward to them.

    No plans to have anything to do with the games at the moment. Fortunately I don't work downtown so it shouldn't affect me at all.

    I feel like I should attend *something*, one of the free public events or something, but since I don't care about the Olympics in general, I'm just not feeling any interest.

    Generally pleased we're hosting, just not my thing.

    Re: Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics -Feb 12-Feb 28, 2010-

    I'd like to go. I don't have any tickets to any of the sporting events or ceremonies, but I'd like to get down there and do some pin trading, either on the opening weekend or the second weekend.

    I have friends that live in Surrey, Burnaby, and Whistler, so accomodations wouldn't be a problem.

    The problem is now I started part-time work working on one of the local ski hills helping to prep lifts for the up-coming season. This will probably lead to a lift attendant position in December, so, I will probably be tied to the ski hill in February.

    Last year's Gordon Ramsay-FOX TV Hell's Kitchen winner has supposedly taken over as the new head chef at a top hotel in Whistler, just in time for the Games - can't remember the name of the place, though.

    I'm sure that NBC will be tape-delaying prime time coverage for the US West Coast, even though these games are taking place in the Pacific Time Zone - again, like before, boo-hiss NBC.
