top ten things vancouver needs more of

10. Snow.



9. Snow tires. Suckaaaa...



8. Snow shovels.

... really? SOLD OUT of snow shovels? This would never happen in Ontario...
Vancouver = epic fail as a Canadian metropolis




7. flash mob.




6. Swiss Chalet. Seriously, is there a single one here?



5. Mornings like this. (And no, I am not kidding.)



4. O-zone. EVERYONE needs more O-zone.



3. Boxcar diners. I swear, I'm tempted to open one just to show the west coast how it's done.
Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.


2. Cow Bell. I mean goal horn.



1. Sun.

But you DO have a new head coach! Incidentally, how do you feel about that?

Also, is the girl in the snow tires picture wearing shorts? Because that seems like a bad life choice.

LOVE that flashmob vid.

I even forget that it is an advertisement and all the cynical corporate bastardism that that entails.

And that behaviour is just so un-English!

You think Vancouver needs help dealing with the snow -- haha -- Kentucky needs help dealing with the snow... I just can't get over how bad they handled it.

Along with what lauren said -- new coach... ??

mer said...

Vacouver doesn't have a new coach. Yet.

But yeah. Ottawa....
Well, with a 17-24-4 record? From a logical place, Hartsburg had it coming. From a strategic place, wtf is Melnyk thinking? If he kept Harsburg, they'd have kept losing and they're so close to dead last, it's almost worth it!

Even if Clouson's crap, we're only 6 points out of last place. Plus, I'm not investing playoff-emotions in Ottawa: I'm rooting for the Pens and the BJs.


deets, there's a rite of passage to becoming an official Vancouverite: when you can wear a mini-skirt and heels after december 1st, you know it's home. i did so last Dec 4th.

haha... a mini skirt and heals...

Saturday night/Sunday morning when I was at a hockey game I saw quite a few girls in mini skirts and heals... that's not a rite of passage thing in my opinion... they're pucks. haha.

mer said...

you know my whole sophie-dressing-up-
as-a-puck-for-hallowe'en thing? I'm FULLY doing that next year. i know I can get one of my friends to do it with me. me in my Heatley jersey, her in her Linden jersey - we'll be like Captain Slut Bunny and her trusty alternate...

ali said...

That will be priceless... definately do it. Awesome.

Oooooh, I haven't been to a Swiss Chalet in years and years. The nearest one growing up was an hour away -- ah, the perks of living in the dairy capital of the Maritimes. Nothing but farms.

DC needs more poutine. Or any poutine at all.

Kentucky did not have snow, they had ice and that is a whole different ball-game. Oklahoma had a massive ice storm Dec 07 and I know first hand what a disaster it can be. (Like a trea limb in my bathroom!). The problem with ice is that it is very heavy and weighs down power lines and tree limbs. You know, when the bough breaks the power lines will fall...
Of course, Oklahoma can't deal with snow, either. Snow blowers are not even sold down here, and most people don't know what they are.

"when the bough breaks the power lines will fall..."

classic.

i know how crap the ice can be, my school's soccer field in Ottawa was a make-shift army base during the 1998 Ice Storm.

Susan said...

@ Mer--yeah, Tulsa is in the pretty part of Oklahoma, lots of lakes and trees, but we lost way too many trees during the ice storm. Big,old trees, too. The kind you just can't replace :( Very sad, but we are still the nicer part of the state.
