Vancouver is only a hop skip and jump away from Bellingham,Wa and I frequently go up for Canucks games. On this particular day I was able to enjoy the energy that is building in Vancouver for the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics. Vancouver city is getting ready and everywhere you go you can feel the excitement. On our way to the hockey game there was a crowd surrounding the countdown clock and many different areas getting ready for the hosting of the games.
In this video for the opening of the Canucks vs Blues they featured all the Olympic athletes and their countries represented that were at the game. In addition, I found out that GM place was going to be completely overhauled from anything Vancouver Canuck to Olympic media. Sitting at the game looking around that was going to be a large task! I was able to celebrate my birthday with all of this excitement in the air and a visit from Ian Watt, a fantastic real estate agent in Downtown Vancouver who was just featured in another social media publication.."Sociable" by Shane Gibson and Steven Jagger. It was being launched the following day..
Ian has also been featured in "Crush It" by Gary Vaynerchuk. If you haven't read both already.. I would highly suggest doing so.
