Giants hockey game review

Last Friday we went to our first hockey game and it was exciting! The game was in the Pacific Coliseum and we all enjoyed it so much and most of us really want to go back for another match. We went to see one of the last games of the Vancouver Giants vs. Kelowna Rockets.
We saw how fast they are on ice, how well they control the balance and even their skills on ice-skating. Even the referees slip like if they were in heaven.

The Vancouver Giants scored the first point during the first period so the atmosphere in the Pacific Coliseum was amazing. Sadly later the Vancouver Giants had a really hard game. Before the third period started the Kelowna Rockets scored 6 and the Vancouver Giants had only 2. But during the third period the Vancouver Giants where really good and so they scored 3 more goals. Well the final result was 5 – 6 (I know, too sad that our Giants lost).

There were a lot of tense moments between the teams and a few guys were ejected during the periods. More pictures can be found here.

It was an amazing and intense match, so you should go at least once to a hockey game while you are here in Canada.

ps: no PuB NiGHT on Wednesday 

We hope you all had a great weekend and we will see you tonight for the St. Paddy’s Party at Joseph Richards at 9pm.

INTERNeX QuiZ NiGHT Review!

Yesterday we had our INTERNeX Quiz NiGHT at the Moose’s Down Under sponsored by Taxback.com! The night started at 8 pm, when slowly the candidates were coming into the bar. When everyone was there, we started to divide everyone into teams. All the teams had to come up with their own team name. My team name was for example: Denemex (Denmark, Netherlands and Mexico). When all the teams were ready we started the quiz! The first round was the picture round – we had a paper with famous people and we had to write down their names on the answer sheet. The second round was ‘general knowledge’. The third round was a movie round with only questions about well-known movies. Finally, the last round was all about music! The questions weren’t easy, but we were battling for an amazing price – 150 dollar bar tap!!

While the jury was counting the points, we were discussing all the questions and we having a nice chat with each other. After a few minutes they were ready to announce the winner! The winners of the $150 dollar bar tap are….. Christian, Bart, Roy and Elvera!! Congratulations to you all, you deserved to win with 43 points!

It was a really nice PuB NiGHT last night and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!! We will see everyone next Wednesday again :D. If you would like to see more pictures that were taken yesterday, go to our Flickr-account.

Cheers,
Claudia

Olympic Highlight 2010-02-23

So as the rest of the world was watching the men’s hockey match between Germany & Canada I have to admit I was encaptured by the women’s figure skating short program. It was quite a long program running up to 3 hours but the highlight of the event came with the final 3 skaters. Long time rivals, South Korean Kim Yu-Na and Japanese Mao Asada battled it out with two very fierce routines. However, no one came quite close enough to Kim’s “bond girl” dance which landed her a new world record mark of 78.50 points, a 4.74 point lead on Asada. This world champion, at the young age of 19, has dominated the season and is a hot favorite both back home in South Korea and in Canada due to the fact that she has done considerable training over here. But she showed few signs of the enormous pressure on her shoulders and confidently nailed all of her jumps whilst still keeping a her energy levels high. However, the person that truly stole the spotlight for me was Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette, who just two days ago had sadly lost her mother to a sudden heart attack just shortly after arriving in Vancouver to support her daughter. Wearing a black costume, the world silver medallist skated cleanly to her tango short programme “La Cumparsita” to the cheers of the spectators who rose to their feet at the end of her two-and-half minute routine. She hit all of her elements and tearfully finished her routine which earned her a season’s best 71.36 points and the accolades of the 11,000-plus crowd. This was definitely be a moment that will go down in Olympic history and hopefully Rochette will be able to continue on her path to the podium…Canada is really rooting for you!
