It was 4 years ago today that I walked into BC Place and received my credentials as the City of Vancouver’s official blogger for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Not since the Vancouver 2010 Olympics had I been so proud to put a lanyard around my neck and check out the best athletes from around the world.

This year’s World Cup is in France, and while it’s not the same as being in our local stadium or at a public celebration and viewing site down the street, you can watch all the action at Library Square Public House.
