So, today is “Candidate Expose” Thursday, which means I am suppose to blog about a new face, employee or employer. You’ll have to forgive me, but having been here for just only a couple days, I am still trying to get accustomed to how the whole PR ordeal works. I was thinking, maybe I’ll just write about myself, then again, I already did that and I’m pretty sure you don’t want to hear me launch into a ten page spiel. No, we’ll save that for when we meet. Yikes!
I’ll write an ‘expose’ anyhow, but on an inanimate object. Today, it’s going to be about one of the most sought after object by all mankind- the Olympic hockey GOLD MEDAL. That’s right. Every four years, athletes from all around the world would gather to compete in their most talented sport, as witnessed in Vancouver this winter season. One of most exhilarating events of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, which had everyone sitting on the edge of their seats, was the Canada vs. USA Men’s Final Gold Medal Olympic Hockey Game. The duel between the two teams was phenomenal, with Canada taking its well-deserved place at the podium.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, you must be wondering why a gold medal deserves to be mentioned. The fact of the matter is, if you are in Vancouver, here’s your opportunity to feast your eyes and come into close proximity with the three medals – Robert Luongo’s gold, Ryan Kesler’s silver and Sami Salo’s bronze. These three medals will be displayed inside the concourse level of GM Place during the Canucks’ home games on weekends. Now, how awesome is that?
Of course, there’s also a very famous saying, “nothing comes without a price”. And the price of seeing these medals?
The cost of a hockey game ticket!
