we got home and had a swim before a trip to the store. now while john prepares some chilaquillas and i sip my drink, i turned on the Wedge and there’s the cutest video. the tune isn’t really my thing – sounds like a mix between couting crows mixed with bright eyes and coldplay mellowed down.. um yeah :p anyhoo, the video is adorable – check it out (here) and have a great weekend!
â€œThe special twist making SOCCERIO possible is the RIO on BROADWAY, which will feature 25 FIFA World Cup matinee games at its 458-seat theatre location on Commercial Drive and East Broadway,â€ said Lenzi. â€œWeâ€™re convinced the one-two punch of the RIO as a flagship venue and the formal promotion of a festival will bring people together along the Drive.â€
For up to the minute action check out the official site, or be lazy…err i mean resourceful and click on the google banner today – which will take you to all world cup related sites AND supply an up-to-the-minute update on the current game (googleness).
remember those commercials for that other seattle radio station – it was some oldies station and all i can remember is someone dancing in duck slippers… anyone? err…
i’m in a silly mood. we watched episode 2, season 3 of Rescue Me which got me all emotional and teary. then john put on Kids in the Hall – Brain Candy. that made the pendulum swing and i got all emotional in a silly happy sense. i’m pretty drained at this point so bed is my best option.
one more scan of the weebernet before i go to bed reveals my everlong-female-artist-crush Holly McNarland has news. I’m a long time member of the HollyMcNarland.org forum but now there’s her myspace page to check out as well. Also, two tracks from the new album can be heard at curve music’s myspace page.
Using North American size ice surfaces rather than converting to international configurations will allow for approximately 350 to 800 additional spectators to enjoy each game live or approximately 35,000 additional tournament tickets, while also achieving approximately $10 million in capital cost savings which will be allocated to the contingency funding in VANOCs overall $580 million venue construction budget.
People are speculating that it’s just a way to cut on already soaring expenses but VANOC has assured that this was its plan all along… hmm.
Was it because their starting goaltender was out with an injury (that was caused mostly by the stupidity of one of their own players), a shake up of nerves within the team or is this just what Edmonton does best – lets you win a few then once they get you back to the Rexall they chew you up and spit you out? Who knows but Carolina is playing their hearts out – defeating the Oil 5-0 yesterday in game 2 (sportsnet). Lets not make excuses eh?
For more on the NHL Draft wander over to Vancouver Canucks Op-Ed, they’re the local source for all that is the draft and as advertised: “This website has become the #1 search on Google when you enter the search terms ‘nhl draft vancouver.” They also have pretty up to the minute info in regards to Canucks’ coaching candidates – I’m pretty lost already on the subject so I’ll leave it to the ‘professionals’ :p
