Review: Vancouver Giants hockey match

Last Saturday we went to watch a great hockey match at Pacific Coliseum. We met up around 6pm and walked the last way to the stadium. We went to watch Vancouver Giants against Saskatoon Blades. The Giants are the younger hockey players trying to get their breakthrough to the Vancouver Canucks and the NHL. So it wasn’t the Canucks, still it was amazing to see how big the stadium is and how many people went to watch the match. And the atmosphere was fantastic. We got some pretty good seats behind the goal not too far away from the ice rink. The match had an awesome start with lots of intensity. All of the players gave it all they got, and the match really had all the drama you could possibly imagine… plenty of goals, a fight between two players, extra time and finally a penalty shootout.

And we also got to experience the teddy bear toss. A lot of people had bought teddy bears at the stadium to support kids in need. So, after the Giants scored their first goal teddy bears came flying onto the ice rink. What a fantastic moment! Teddy bears came flying from everywhere and it seemed as if it would never stop. During the breaks we were entertained by small kids plying hockey and a lot of different competitions.

The final score was 3-2 to Vancouver Giants after a nerve-wracking penalty shootout. Thanks to you guys who joined in for this great match!

Flawless Figure Skating @ The Games

Last night spectators witnessed a spectacular event at the women’s figure skating medal event. Favourite Kim Yu-Na lived up to her star billing as she gave South Korea their first ever Olympic figure skating title with a flawless performance. The reigning world champion wiped the tears from her eyes after her spellbinding free skate at the Pacific Coliseum which gave her gold by a massive 23-point margin on her nearest challenger and longtime rival Mao Asada of Japan. World silver medalist, Joannie Rochette, who just recently lost her mother by a sudden heart attack, admitted it was a battle to compete but she had been boosted by the thousands of messages of support she received from around the world. The young skater was able to put her grief temporarily aside and pull out a gutsy performance which gaver her an Olympic bronze. Rochette revealed Thursday that her Vancouver success was predicted by her mother just days before her tragic death. She had the crowd on their feet for her gutsy performance which put Canada back on the women’s podium for the first time since Elizabeth Manley took silver at the 1988 Calgary Games.
