Olympic Fever

14 Feb

A day after the official opening of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, my fiancé and I decided to go to Richmond Centre and experience the Olympic atmosphere.

Clearly, every sign points to an important theme:

Yes, it’s Olympic time, and in front of every TV, people are watching the games.  Hockey, skiing, luge, mogul – people just watch and try to enjoy the games.  After all, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have the world’s greatest sport entertainment shown and play in your own city.  I mean, I think it is pretty incredible.

At The Bay, it was very crowded.  Everyone was getting on the Olympic bandwagon and wanted to get something Olympic.

Unable to withstand the temptation, I bought some things too:

“Vancouver 2010” duffle bag – from The Bay

 Canada Mini Backpack – from Roots

Roots/Canada Shoulder Messenger Bag – from Roots; bought it separately for $2 or have it as a free gift when purchased other Roots merchandise

 Luggage Tag – from The Bay

The most popular item, I think, is the Olympic mitten.  $10 – that’s not expensive at all, and I would’ve bought it, if we actually had some snow on the ground or if it was snowing like the end of 2008-beginning of 2009.  Now that would’ve been a different Olympic experience.

The Opening Ceremony was awesome, especially at the very beginning when the snowboarder came in and started the ceremony.  From the start to end, I think it was a great show, and it demonstrated that Vancvouer is truly a heavenly city with natuarl beauty.

Go Canada Go~

    Dum sis, you can go to The Bay The Olympic Superstore in downtown. They open until midnight, I think. But prepare for the long line-up.
