INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend & Soccer Review

It´s Monday and I hope you´ve had another wonderful weekend here in Vancouver. There were many things going on, like the Chinese New Years Parade or the Soccer Semi-Final on Saturday and the Final on Sunday.
I spent my weekend in Victoria. I took the BC Ferry Friday night and came back on Sunday at 3.30pm. It was fun to see my old hostfamily and some friends I met at Uvic, while I was taking part in an English Program. We enjoyed ourselves downtown and at a party with some drinks and had lots of fun.
On Sunday I went back to Vancouver with the 1pm ferry. Usually it takes around 1 ½ hours with the ferry from Victoria BC to Vancouver, but not yesterday…
The coast guards searched for a 50 year old man in the ocean who got lost. The captain of the BC Ferry was not allowed to cross the area where they were looking for the man so we arrived in Vancouver 40 Minutes delayed. I went straight to the BC Place Stadium to meet with some other Guys to watch the Women Soccer Final.

Canadians started to like soccer so the game was already sold out. We went to a PuB to watch the game there together and had food and a few drinks, had lots of fun and were laughing a lot (of course not about the soccer game!). So even that we didn´t get tickets we made the best out of it and had a really good time.
Canada lost the Final against USA 0:4 but they are both qualified for the Olympic Games 2012 in London so they reached their goal and perhaps they are more successful this summer.
It was great to see that many people showed up to watch the Soccer Game together.We never thought about that the game would be sold out so we decided to cancel the plan to get the tickets already on Thursday, also because of the reason that we couldn’t make a reservation on tickets and we couldn´t collect the money earlier. I hope you enjoyed our public viewing in the Pub and hopefully we have more luck next time!
Have a nice week,

Hannes

Video Of The Week — WE ARE ALL CANUCKS!

It’s time for the video of the week and since we built up the tradition to show solely clips about the Canucks, the Stanley Cup, Vancouver and funny cover songs related to it, we want to stick to it for one last time…

 Today, on a sunny Wednesday, June 15, the Vancouver Canucks will win the Stanley Cup 2011 for the first time in NHL history!

Why? Because they have the most awesome fans in the world! And of course because it’s a home match 😉 Next to that…They ROCK! It will be a nerve-wracking 7th and last match of the final! Everybody in the INTERNeX office is soooo excited about it!

So let’s cheer for our team from wherever you are, as loud as you can with all the positive energy that you have so the Canucks can hear every fan from every corner in Canada in the Rogers Arena!!

Let’s make them bring the gigantic trophy home on a wave of energetic, overwhelming fan love!

Even if you are not from Canada, just as me, remember that as long as you are here: WE ARE ALL CANUCKS! 😀

Go Canucks Go!

2010 Olympic Torch Relay Celebration

So the torch relay started over three months ago back on October 30th in Victoria, British Columbia. The flame has travelled endlessly for the past 1,000 days throughout Canada and if you have missed it then you have one last chance. This flame was initially lit in Olympia, Greece on October 22nd but it’s journey (that was over 45,000 km long) is coming to an end today. The Olympic torch will be laid to rest in its final destination, Whistler! See the torchbearers first hand on the last leg of their long journey and head to the village square and enjoy endless amounts of entertainment. It’s an event not to be missed so if you are up in Whistler check it out today or for more information look at this website
