Paralympic Sledge Hockey Tickets

Comments 194 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Paralmypics are in full swing and with two wins under their belt, our Sledge Hockey team is picking up the pace. The action on the ice is fast, hard-hitting, and the skills required to excel in this sport are unmatched.

During my Vancouver 2010 Olympics coverage I ran a contest for men’s Ice Hockey tickets, which ended up being the most popular in history. With over 1,400 entries the prize sponsor, BC Hydro, felt it would be a good idea to run another campaign for my readers.

BC Hydro has given me two pairs (meaning I’ll have two sets of winners) to the men’s gold medal Sledge Hockey game taking place March 20th at 12:00pm.

There are three ways you can enter to win these tickets:

  • Leave a comment on this post (1 entry)
  • or

  • Visit the BC Hydro Power Smart Village and upload your photo to the Flickr Group (2 entries)
    They have their Power Smart Village up and running throughout the Paralympics in case you didn’t get the chance to check it out during the Olympics.
  • or

  • Re-Tweet – You may use the following text as a guide (1 entry)
    Enter to win Gold Medal Sledge Hockey tickets from @Miss604 & @PowerSmartBC #van2010
  • Update March 18th, 2010 I have drawn the winners of the tickets who will each receive two pairs. The first is @trevorboudreau (Twitter entry) and the second is Kathryn (March 17th comment) – congratulations!

    Fine print: Contest closes at 5:00pm Thursday March 18th at which time I’ll draw the two winners, who will each get a pair of tickets. Winners will have 24 hours to confirm their prize and will then need to pick them up from the location I provide. If a winner cannot use the tickets, there will be a re-draw.

      I’m totally amazed at what these sledge hockey players do…. it looks intense.

      Yay BC Hydro and contests!

    2. HenryMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:33pm PDT

      I went and watched the USA v. Korea game. Truly impressed by the amount of skill/strength required to play.

    3. OanaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:33pm PDT

      Oh I would love to go to the gold medal game! Go Canada Go!

    4. Trevor BoudreauMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:33pm PDT

      So impressed by the sledge hockey players! Saw the SWE vs. NOR game last Saturday. The pace may be a little slower, but the stick-handling is far superior!

    5. Michelle GMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:34pm PDT

      I miss all the Olympic energy in town. Going to any event would be awesome…but Gold Medal Sledge Hockey…tops.

    6. Michelle TiceMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:35pm PDT

      I would love to win 2 tickets to the Gold Medal Game – it is a fantastic event! Thanks for putting the contest together.

    7. travelpalsbcMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:35pm PDT

      we watched the game yesterday it seems so much faster than hockey on skates but was a great game and I would love to see it live.

      Yay for you, BC Hydro and free tix

      Hope you choose me..

      Cheers Caryn (@travelpalsbc)

    16. lucMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:39pm PDT

      I missed the first contest, I like this one!

    17. Fiona BurrowsMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:40pm PDT

      Amazing athletes the Paralympians are!

    18. ashleyMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:40pm PDT

      Sledge Hockey shootouts were one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Amazing.

    19. Tony BrandnerMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:43pm PDT

      Very cool. I haven’t got to watch a game yet but it sounds intense. Watching the CTV special where they took the hockey player and put him out there on a sledge was great.

    20. Blair SmithMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:43pm PDT

      These guys are impressive athletes

    21. Jeremy CockrillMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:45pm PDT

      Man, sledge hockey is so much fun to watch! Westlake, Bridges, and Bowden; that line is going to win us the gold!

    22. ShaunaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:45pm PDT

      I saw the Sweden-Norway game on Saturday & I was very impressed! The shootout was really exciting and the energy was great!

    23. TriciaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:45pm PDT

      I was at the Korea-US game… wow, what an intense sport. Would love to watch it again!

    24. KathrynMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:46pm PDT

      The sledge hockey players are amazing athletes – this would be such a fun game to attend!

    33. JanineMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:54pm PDT

      My 9 year old son has been as excited watching the sledge hockey as he is watching the Canucks! It would make his year if we won tickets to the Gold Metal Game!

    34. StefanMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:56pm PDT

      These guys are absolutely intense. Would love to see a game live.

    35. CarlosMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 1:59pm PDT

      Ohhh! So many comments already! Nice work Miss604! I’d love to see this game. I think the place will be crazy!

    44. Andrew HudsonMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 2:28pm PDT

      Sweet. My 9 year old has become entranced by the sport of sledge hockey.

    45. MonicaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 2:32pm PDT

      I would love to see some sledge hockey! Thanks BC Hydro.

    46. IanMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 2:39pm PDT

      Yes please. I haven’t had a chance to check out the power smart village. I’ll try to make it out there before the end of March. Nice that a lot of the events are still in town for the Paralympics !

    47. VancityAllieMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 2:48pm PDT

      Great contest! I’d love to go.. thanks Rebecca and BC Hydro!

    49. JohnnyMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:03pm PDT

      I watched the slegehockey opening vs Sweden on TV – what a fantastic game! Would LOVE an opportunity to attend the Gold Medal Game!

      Go Canada Go! And Go BC Hydro PowerSmart!

      I just wished that there was more coverage of the Paralympics in general:


    50. Kaitlin Duck SherwoodMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:05pm PDT

      I tried to find 20 people to go to the CAN-NOR game with me, and found 40! Alas, they were sold out when I went to the box office. I ended up as USA-CZE with 20 people, and that was a lot of fun! I would love to see the gold. 🙂

    51. SheilaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:06pm PDT

      Oh- I’d LOVE to take my 5yr old to the Gold Medal Game! He has been asking all about how it is different from normal hockey.

    52. Jeff MacLeodMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:16pm PDT

      With a gold medal in sledge hockey Canada will be at the forefront of World Hockey (Though we have already been for quite some time :P) As I wasn’t able to attend any of the Olympic Ceremonies, though Livecity Yaletown and Livecity Downtown were very exciting, I would love to be able to attend a Paralympic Games game.

    53. GreggMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:17pm PDT

      Two prizes, that’s pretty sweet 🙂

    54. GinaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:26pm PDT

      Hi, I’m always looking for fun and interesting things to do and really appreciate your posts and event listings!

    55. SusanMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:29pm PDT

      Would love to take my son to the game! Great contest, thanks.

    56. MichelMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:32pm PDT

      Count me in!

    57. Charlene AndrewMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:57pm PDT

      I’m disappointed in the lack of media coverage for the Paralympics, glad to see you are on board! Taking in any game would be fabulous, gold? wow even better!

    58. Charlene AndrewMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:59pm PDT

      BTW – did you know that the Paralympics can be watched online for free? They have some live coverage and some recorded. You can still view the opening cermonies. Just google Paralympic Sport Tv, you’ll find it. Cheers!

    59. AndreaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 3:59pm PDT

      Ooh, ooh…me! I would love to go!

    60. taradenMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:01pm PDT

      I too amazed with the sledge hockey athletes….it looks like quite a demanding sport. I would love to go check out a game!!!

    61. AlanMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:07pm PDT

      Thsnks, another great contest

    62. Tiffany R WMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:09pm PDT

      I think that it is awesome and amazing that the sledge hockey athletes are finally able to show the world what they can do. It’s about time they get the fame and recognition they deserve!

    63. ScottMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:11pm PDT

      Whoo! Just tweeted, now I’ll comment, and I’ll have to get downtown before the contest ends… Good luck everyone!

    64. LauraMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:25pm PDT

      Go Canada Go! It would be a thrill to go!

    65. LesleyMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:26pm PDT

      Wow, what an amazing sport. Would love to be able to attend!!

    66. Mike BrowneMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:27pm PDT

      We saw Italy vs Norway on Saturday. What a great game!

    67. JamesMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:28pm PDT

      Keep these olympic memories going!

    68. LisaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:28pm PDT

      I’ve been watching sledge hockey on the Paralympics Live TV website, but I’m upset that all the games have not been televised. Sledge hockey is such an exciting sport, and there’s no doubt that people would watch it on TV, so it doesn’t make sence to me. Anyways, I would just love to go to the sledge hockey finals, it would be so amazing, and I would be the envy of my family.

    69. deniMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:32pm PDT

      Wow, would love to win these! Thanks for the great giveaway.

    70. JuneMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 4:37pm PDT

      Thanks for the contest info – the photos of the Olympic medals and the mint in general, are fantastic!

    71. TeresaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 5:03pm PDT

      I got to see the Paralympic Opening Ceremony. It was pretty cool.

    72. PaulineMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 5:10pm PDT

      My son plays sledge hockey and would be so greatful if he could get to the gold medal game.GO Canada

    73. Jiim ClevelandMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 5:16pm PDT

      I’ve been a Sledge Hockey fan since volunteering at the Canada Cup. These guys are amazing athletes. I’m a Volunteer at UBC Thunderbird but haven’t seen a Paralympic game! I’d love to see the Gold Medal match – no matter who Canada is playing!

    74. MauriceMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 5:27pm PDT

      Amazing what these folks can do on the ice! Go Canada Go!

    75. KathyMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 5:28pm PDT

      I agree with previous posters in that there’s not enough coverage of the Paralympic Games. If it was broadcast on tv regularly, more people would be excited about all the Paralympic events.

      I try to watch as many Paralympic events as possible on and I am rooting for our Canadian sledge hockey team as well. It would be amazing to go to the Gold Medal sledge hockey game.

    76. James ChungMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 5:35pm PDT

      Yay! I want to win the gold medal Sledge Hockey game. Go Canada Go!!!

    77. KelseyMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 6:16pm PDT

      With Glowing Hearts! Go Canada Go!

    78. Michael FoxMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 6:25pm PDT

      would LOVE these tickets! Sledge hockey is awesome, I’m glad so many people are able to finally see how intense it is!

    79. JanMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 6:47pm PDT

      Would love to win tickets.

    80. Duncan StephenMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 6:56pm PDT

      Awesome contest. I would love to be there when Canada takes it!

    81. Richard WMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 7:01pm PDT

      Go Canada Go! Kudos to BC Hydro!!

    82. KimMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 7:17pm PDT

      Awesome contest! I would love to attend the gold medal sledge hockey game 🙂

    83. BrendaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 7:40pm PDT

      I still haven’t been to any olympics/paralympics events! I hope I get to go!

    84. NatalieMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 7:41pm PDT

      I would love to see this live!

    85. Yasmin AbrahamMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 7:42pm PDT

      I love that these events are sold out, i think it’s a great thing for the sport. But I would still like to go!

    86. CarolMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 7:54pm PDT

      Hi, I totally am dismayed and disappointed that their is no live tv coverage on CTV for the paralympics. Would love to take my kids to see a sledge hockey game and experience more olympic golden history.
      thanks for the chance to cheer.

    87. GloriaMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 8:15pm PDT

      would love to see this live!

    88. SherryMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 9:16pm PDT

    89. ValeryMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 9:48pm PDT

      Would love to go see this game. Here’s rooting for Canada to be in the finals! Go Canada Go!

    90. CindyMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 10:05pm PDT

      Go Canada Go!!! This sport is so exciting and I’m surprised at how rough the game can be!

    91. CarlosMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 10:20pm PDT

      Three Cheers for the Paralympics! Three Cheers for Sledge Hockey! Three Cheers for Miss604!

    92. Ryan PotterMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 10:47pm PDT

      I saw USA vs chech and loved every minute

      Would love to have the chance to take more pictures at an event! Great blog btw – been looking for something fresh to get me more interested in Vancouver again.

    94. WilsonMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 11:02pm PDT

      Very cool game. You have to admire the play considering the circumstances. Go Canada!

    95. AndreMonday, March 15th, 2010 — 11:56pm PDT

      I went to a game last weekend, and it’s definitely worthwhile for those who have not seen this game before!

    96. mark rennesonTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 8:36am PDT


    97. lauraTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 8:36am PDT

      hope i get lucky!

    98. Richard BandTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 9:27am PDT

      I saw ex Maple Leaf Wendel Clark trying to play sledge hockey with the Canadian olympic team. Even though he’d played 20 years in the NHL, he was no match for those guys – they are awesome.

    99. TomTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:48am PDT

      Can’t believe the strength/determination of these guys. And the skill. Go Canada.

      Me please Miss604.

    100. Stephen PhungTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:49am PDT

      Loving sledge hockey. So thankful to witness this intense sport. Bought tickets to every Canada game so far + Bronze medal game.

    101. Julie Ovenell-CarterTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:50am PDT

      Saw my first sledge hockey game last Saturday–and pretty sure Canada will be in the gold medal round–and I’d like to be there too!!

    102. TaraTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:51am PDT

      Keep the Paralympic / Olympic dream alive! Go Canada Go! Ain’t nothin’ finer than a bit of Sledge Hockey on a Saturday!

    103. Steve RayTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:52am PDT

      If you have never seen a sledge hockey game live, it rocks.

    104. JenniferTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:53am PDT

      Would love to see some sledge hockey!

    105. Thomas NguyenTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:56am PDT

      I was at the Japan Vs Korea match this Sunday and it was amazing what these athletes can do!

    106. MaddyTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:57am PDT

      I’m going to the sledge hockey game tomorrow! I’d love to see this one as well 🙂

    107. CarolynTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 10:57am PDT

      Went to the Canada-Sweden sledge hockey game on Sunday (Canada 10, Sweden 1) and would love to see the finals. Thanks!

      I’ve seen wheelchair basketball but never sledge hockey – would love to see it!

    112. Darrin ThompsonTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 11:14am PDT

      Although I am highly disappointed in the lack of mainstream coverage for the paralympics I have thoroughly enjoyed the sledge hockey games on TV and the highlights from the other events. I would love to be able to attend the gold medal game and cheer on the athletes no matter the outcome..

      Another Gr8 Contest from Miss 604 and the fabulous sponsors.



    113. Anne BergerTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 11:22am PDT

    114. Trisha CurreyTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 11:44am PDT

      As many Vancouverites, I’m pleased to hear that we are no longer known as the ‘No Fun City’ If I have half as much fun during the Paralympics as I did during the Olympics…’s going to be a blast!
      Going to the Sledge Hockey finals would be the perfect ending to an amazing ‘Olympic Experience’

    115. winartoTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 11:44am PDT

      Saw the game for the first time on TV, would love to see them live eh

      I’d really really REALLY love to see the gold medal game. I’m amazed at skills of the players on the idea.

    123. LauraTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 1:05pm PDT

      Would love the opportunity to enjoy the gold medal game in person!

    124. DaveTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 1:22pm PDT

      I’m in town to forecast the weather for the Paralympics, but I have this day off and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go! 🙂

    125. GaganTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 1:30pm PDT

      It would be great if I can get these tickets. Wifey would be pleased to see the final. 🙂

    126. JoeyTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 2:02pm PDT

      As a visually impaired person with zero athletic ability I’m struck by how much strength and talent all these athletes have!I usually shy away from going to live events because I’m always worried about whether or not I’ll be able to see, but I’d love to go see the game not only because I’ve never been to a live sporting event but also it’d be wonderful to witness these world-class athletes compete live!

    127. LindsayTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 2:09pm PDT

      Would absolutely love to go to the gold game. It has been great to learn more about the Paralympics.

    128. Aloha JohnsonTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 2:35pm PDT

      I was watching some of the paralympics, including the sledge hockey, and in awe of what those athletes do. How amazing it would be to be able to yell in person!

    129. sradnidgeTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 4:26pm PDT

      i would enjoy this!

    130. Laura MoonTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 4:26pm PDT

      What a game! What a team! Go Canada

    131. JenTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 5:12pm PDT

      I am so proud of the Canadian paralympians! I cheered on the sledge hockey team when I saw them on tv and would LOVE to go to the game!

    132. JeremyTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 5:13pm PDT

      Sledge hockey is amazing, it would be great to see it live!

    133. C.T. LittTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 5:15pm PDT

      I uploaded a picture to the flickr group from up in whistler during the games! love hockey and would be pretty happy at the game on Saturday! Great site by the way, definately the best source of info for Vancouver and especially the olympics!

    134. MikeTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 7:35pm PDT

      Sledge hockey rules! I think these athletes deserve to play BEFORE the actual olympics, that way they get much more exposure, they get to get experience running the games beforehand and I think these people maybe just be doing something much greater than our “normal” athletes?

      Thanks for the opportunity BC Hydro AND Miss 604!

    135. ChrisTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 9:27pm PDT

      Sounds awesome.

    136. LouiseTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 9:52pm PDT

      I’m watching the Canada vs Norway game on tv right now and we’re totally rocking it! =]

      Entered to win Gold Medal Sledge Hockey tickets via commenting

    138. JennyTuesday, March 16th, 2010 — 11:41pm PDT

      Went to see the Japan verus USA game. Awesome!! Would love to get some tickets to the Gold Medal game!!

    139. LillianWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 12:01am PDT

      They are awesome athletes! I would love to see the Gold Medal Sledge Hockey game live. Go Canada Go!

    140. IanWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 7:03am PDT

      I saw the Norway vs. Italy game, and was really impressed. How great it would be to cheer on Canada for the gold!

    141. ClaytonWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 8:02am PDT

      Would love these tickets! The 2010 Olympics were amazing and looking forward to these sledge hockey games as well!

    142. JanWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 10:02am PDT

      I hope the Gold Medal game is another CAN vs. USA classic!

    143. AlWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 10:39am PDT

      Didn’t get to see a single Olympic event live, would love to win these!

    144. Sharon SwitzerWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 9:59am PDT


      I would love to win tickets for a young man that is quadrapledgic living in Victoria, BC. I think he would be inspired and he needs a little pick me up.

    145. LarissaWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 12:15pm PDT

      That would be cool.

    146. CamilleWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:04pm PDT

      This is a great idea! So much focus is placed on the Olympic Games that it is easy for the Paralympics to get lost in the shuffle. I’m glad to see that there is so much interest and support!

      Also…I had to give away my sledge hockey tickets for Tuesday night due to sickness, so I’d love another shot at attending – especially the Gold Medal game!! GO CANADA!!

    147. SamWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:37pm PDT

      i have yet to attend an event. hopefully i can watch this one.

    148. elleWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:38pm PDT

      I saw the first game with Italy – pretty amazing stuff! I’d love to go to the gold medal game!!

    149. GillianWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:39pm PDT

      Ooooh, I’d love to go! They are such amazing athletes. I’ve been to 2 sledge games already and their strength and stamina is incredible!

    150. JaneWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:40pm PDT

      We watched the best hockey EVER as Canada beat Sweden on Sunday!! and would love to see the Gold Medal game. Tx for a great contest.

    151. MilaWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:41pm PDT

      I have yet to see a single event at the Paralympics. I hope I win! *crosses fingers*

    152. scalesWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:42pm PDT

      one of the most exciting sport of the paralympics.. thanks for doing this contest

    153. Amy ElderkinWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:55pm PDT

      I am dying to see one of these games and this would be amazing! These athletes blow me away!!!


    154. BrettWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 1:59pm PDT

      Heading to Vancouver for the final weekend of the Paralympics. Gold Medal Sledge Hockey tickets would be memorable.

    155. leeanne eklandWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 2:12pm PDT

      i love that these games are opening the eyes of all with respect to the lack of limitations one with a ‘disability’ actually has if they put their mind to it. A lesson to us all.

    156. KaterWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 2:20pm PDT

      I ditto everything Amy Elderkin said – amazing, blowing me away, and thanks!

    157. StephanieWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 3:56pm PDT

      Last night’s Canada v Norway game was terrific. I’m betting we make the gold medal game and would just love to be there!

    158. JitkaWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 4:08pm PDT

      Great contest!! Please count me in. =)

    159. AmyWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 4:30pm PDT

    160. Carole RobertsonWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 4:33pm PDT

      After volunteering for both the Olympics and Paralympics I finally was able to see a sporting event. My ticket was for M/W Super G; sitting and visually impaired classifications. Unfortunately due to adverse weather conditions the event was changed to M/W Slalom; standing classification, but no worries I was attending a live Paralympic event! Wow what a great experience and what amazing athletes! The crowd was wild! The icing on the cake – Canada won both Gold and Bronze in the Womens event. I had a great day and the German Alpine sit-skier I met went on to win Gold the following day!
      DON’T miss out; catch the Paralympics live!

    161. Walter2010Wednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 5:28pm PDT

      Winner winner, chicken dinner!

      Canada is going for the golden hat trick in hockey!

    163. Lindsay SkrivanosWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 7:33pm PDT

      Sweet! I would love to go the game. Pick me!! 🙂

    164. KimWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 7:59pm PDT

      My 7-year old daughter and her dad are going to Vancouver Saturday… they wanted sledge hockey tix but had to settle for curling. They would LOVE these two tix and would leave curling early to see it! Thanks!

    165. MeredithWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 8:58pm PDT

      GOOOOOo Canada GO!!!

    166. KathrynWednesday, March 17th, 2010 — 9:52pm PDT

      It is my son’s dream to go to the final, the players are such an inspiration to our kids.

    167. Julie HuangThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 12:14am PDT

      If I could go…it would totally make up for the chance I missed out on today to go to the wheelchair curling!!

    168. LukeThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 1:51am PDT

      This sport is amazing!! There are sooo many bodychecks, it’s awesome! Another Canada US rematch is on its way! Go Canada Go!!

    169. JenniferThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 2:06am PDT

      I’d love to actually go to a medal event. Go Canada!!!

    170. IndiThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 7:10am PDT

    171. MJ AnkenmanThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 11:26am PDT

      Heading out to go by PowerSmart Pavilon and the Canadian Mint. Hopefully can get into them today. So glad they decided to remain open for the Paralympics. Thanks too Rebecca for all your posts to help me keep track of what is going on. Would love to see the Sledge Hockey Live.

    172. RhettThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 11:36am PDT

      Sledge Hockey would be amazing to see live! The Paralympics are so under-appreciated.

    173. MarinaThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 11:39am PDT

      One last chance at some Olympic spirit and this is THE event to be at!

    174. SLThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 11:43am PDT

      Another Canada vs. US hockey game – I’d love to go to the game!!! I admire the players, I think sledge hockey is a lot harder than the “regular” hockey! Thanks Rebecca for your great posts! 🙂 GO CANADA GO!

    182. ColleenThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 12:19pm PDT

      I was trying to buy them on the vancouver2010 site, but they kept saying not available =( Going to see a gold medal game would be so great!

    183. S FieldThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 12:29pm PDT

      I’d love to take my 6 yo to see this. He’s a hockey fanatic. But the thing that I think is so fantastic is he and his friends don’t blink an eye at the amazing things paralympic athletes can do. That’s the big legacy of Terry Fox, Rick Hansen and all the athletes that have come after them is in a generation our society has changed its attitude enough that it sees achievement rather than ability/disability.

    184. JaniceThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 12:43pm PDT

      Go Canada Ice Sledge Hockey Team!!!

    185. Michelle (@jazzdolphin)Thursday, March 18th, 2010 — 1:22pm PDT

      Would be amazing to see 1 of the gold medal games that Canada is going to kick butt in.. (certainly couldn’t afford the other mens or womens games)…

      I also finally put up some of my Olympic reflections & memories on my blog: (more info, details, pics & video still to come.. so check back for updates after the weekend likely! Would LOVE to be able to a live event attendance on there..


    186. MatthewThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 1:34pm PDT

      Sledge hockey is awesome. I’m amazed at the fitness level and strength of those guys. GO CANADA GO!

    187. Josiah Tam PhotographyThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 1:41pm PDT

      Oh man I’d love to win these tickets! I was planning on buying a pair and then I wasn’t able to!

    188. KevinThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 1:47pm PDT

      Would love to check out sledge Hockey as I couldn’t afford to see anything during the Olympics. btw, thanks for offering this contest.

    189. juliaThursday, March 18th, 2010 — 1:48pm PDT
