INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

And it’s Monday again! This weekend went really fast for me. Maybe because of the rain showers all days.. However, let’s talk about the weekend!

On Saturday we organised the Champions League Final in The Blarney Stone. Because of the time difference with Europe we had to watch around noon.
Despite the rain a lot of people turn up! We ordered some beers and some food. The match was played on the LARGEST SCREEN of Vancouver. Like a 7 meter HD wide screen!

So the match began and we’re all excited! It was a really intense game with a lot of changes for both sides. In the first half everybody was complaining about Arjen Robben.. He had a few good changes to shoot Bayern in front but he missed all of these! In the second half he made it all good. First a assist for the opening goal. After that a penalty for Dortmund followed so the match was 1-1. Till the end of the match everybody thought about a draw and extra time, penalties?

But, 88 min (no Bayern fan will ever forget this moment!) Arjen Robben passed the ball underneath the goalie of Dortmund and made himself the (Dutch) matchwinner!
The whole place was going crazy (except some Dortmund fans of course). We drank another beer for this victory and had a great afternoon!

Thank you for all the amazing people that turned up. I enjoyed every minute on Saturday. Hopefully you did the same! By the way. Sorry for the Dortmund fans. I’m writing this as a Bayern fan. 😉

Cheers

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

The weekend is finally here! (almost few hours to go). What a beautiful day to end this week. I mean, the good weather of course! So if you do not know yet what you want to do this weekend, we made a small list for you!


Champions League Final
Tomorrow we will watch the German (Bayern vs Dormund) Champions League Final together in The Blarney Stone. You can join us on Facebook or just go there by yourself

  • WHEN Saterday 25th – 11:30 am
  • WHERE The Blarney Stone MAP


Grouse Grind Hike
Another great thing we’re planning to do is the Grouse Grind. This hike is all the way to the top of Grouse Mountain. It’s an average climb so bring some good shoes and water with you! Because the experience depends on the views we will decide 2 hours before the climb if it’s a go.

  • WHEN Sunday 26th – 11:00 am
  • WHERE Meeting in Granville St with W Georgia St (Downtown) MAP

So, let’s hope the weather is nice on sunday! I hope that all of you have a great weekend and feel free to join us with the activities above.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday. Champions League time!

Hey everybody,

This week was a short one. On Monday we where free because of Victoria Day, so the weekend is almost here! This Saterday (May 25th) the Champions League Final will take place!
This year we have a 9 hour time difference with Europe. So, at lunchtime we will watch the final together!

I want to share my thoughts about this match on this casual Friday.
Quite fun that it will be a German final. Back in December I was in the Amsterdam ArenA supporting my team AFC Ajax Amsterdam. The opponent was Borrussia Dortmund. We had some good hope that we could beat them. (we just beat Manchester City with 3-1 and 2-2 away). Not knowing that ‘they’ will be one of the Champions League finalist a few months later. By the way, they beat Ajax with 1-4 … enough about Dortmund.

The other team is Bayern München. This team had some bad luck the last couple of years. First they lost the Champions League Final in 2010 against Inter Milan. Last year they lost it from Chelsea (unfair), when they were playing at home.

So Bayern wants some revenge, and Dortmund want to beat their biggest rival.
I think it will be a great match with some awesome soccer! Especially from the actions of Arjen Robben, the best player of Bayern München of course 😉

So if you want, you can join us tomorrow morning at The Blarney Stone.  (see our Facebook event for more info) I’m really looking forward for this match because I’m a big soccer fan!

Have a good weekend,

Jelle
