A Funny Thing Happened in Vancouver
16/01/2006

I should have posted this last week, but...

I happened to be in Vancouver in the first week of January when the World Junior Hockey Championship was being played. By coincidence, I was staying at the same hotel as Team Canada and two other teams.

We tried to get tickets to the final, but that was essentially impossible. The city was going crazy over the game. I ended up watching it at a friend's house. It was great to see Canada win again with a new crop of hockey heroes.

What I didn't know until 2:30 that morning was that I was on a floor in the hotel where every other room was occupied by one of our Team Canada stars! They were excited after the biggest night of the lives, running, shouting, banging loudly. I had an early meeting the next day but you just can't call and complain about Team Canada.

Anyway, as you can see in the picture below, even the hotel was confused. They thought I was part of the team and left a gift in my room that evening.
