In time, any serious hockey market will destroy its $64 million goaltender.
The $514 million renovation of Vancouver's BC Place stadium, home to the BC Lions and Vancouver Whitecaps as well as the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, was more than 400 percent over budget, a Vancouver business paper is reporting.
Add this to your bucket list: Watching a U.S. presidential election from somewhere other than the States. On Tuesday night I was about 40 miles from the border, in Vancouver, watching the election returns with Democrat ex-pats. (The party affiliation was an inevitability, as there are virtually no Republicans in…
This Canucks season ended slightly more prosaically than the last one. No fires, no broken windows, no hungover city sheepishly cleaning up after itself and swearing that its thousands of jersey-clad rioters in no way represent the fans or Vancouver.
Sorry, I didn't think we had enough Vancouver stuff on the site today. The Canucks have released a video titled "This Is Our Home," featuring players urging Vancouverites to not act like morons as the playoffs arrive, i.e. please don't smash the windows of Blenz. "Celebrate responsibly," fans are told, ominously…
The Canucks are second in the Western Conference, and largely the same team as last year, so it's time for the city of Vancouver to start asking some hypotheticals. What if the Canucks make another deep run? What if they lose in the finals again? What if they win?
Kurtenblog dug up this unseen raw footage of the birth of the Canucks riots, from outside the Post Office where the first flipped, flaming car kicked off the night. It's a frightening testament to mob psychology, and does make you wonder at the lack of visible police.
Of course you remember the golden Vancouver riot couple, forever commemorated in this photo, their newfound love a port in a storm of tear gas and riot shields. Well, some folks wrote that the photo might have been staged—it seemed too perfect, too cinematic. We understood. Oh, this postmodern world.
For the record, he was wearing a Christian Ehrhoff shirtsey.
FORT McMURRAY, ALBERTA — During the nine months I've lived in Canada, I've abandoned my image of Canadians as a bunch of northern Minnesotans with their pinkies extended, single-payer health care and Queen Elizabeth's plump mugshot on every single coin in their snap-purses. They truly are a more polite, more svelte…
Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Jason Seaver gets the final word.
Why do they do it? It's hard to stand on the outside and watch people try to burn their city down. It's even harder to understand the mentality of someone who morphs from sports fan to looter, pillager, criminal. What is in the mind of the rioter?
At about the three-minute mark in this video, the band of drunks redirects its impotent rage onto a man (described in the YouTube video as a security guard) who tries to keep them from smashing the department store windows. I'm still trying to make sense of when a sports-related riot shifts from being about…
Tipster Angus D. kindly shared this six-second snippet of a fellow in a Vancouver Canucks jersey totally flopping after he got hit by an errant party favor. This occurred after the hometown side decided it was best to just let the Boston Bruins take the Stanley Cup home with them.
As a young driver, they used to tell me: Always pick up hitchhikers. You never know when one of them will be the guy who scored Spider-Man: the Musical.
This is an actual headline on ABCNews.com right now: ""Headed to Olympics? Beware of Terror Attacks." So enjoy the bobsled everyone ... because it will be your last!
This is the best news lede of the month: "The potential for an Ultimate Fighting Championship event to draw undesirable gangsters to downtown Vancouver is real, say police." So should we just hand over our wallets and women now?
