Hot for Hockey: Vancouver 2010 Olympic Style
A dream came true last night when I attended my first ever Winter Olympics mens hockey game. Not just any old hockey game, but for my home team: CANADA! Being the boys’ first game in the tournament, I wanted to look my best decked out in our nation’s colour, red.
Apologies for these photos not being the most creative but it was hard trying to get style shots in a line up of several thousand!
I broke my own rules from my piece on What Does One Wear to the Hockey Game (no skirts) as I pulled out a high-waisted, grey bandage number for the occasion. Rules are meant for breaking, right??
When the Canadian team stepped onto the ice for the pre-game warmup, the crowd went nuts with chants of “Go Canada Go!” reverberating throughout the stadium. I was especially proud when our very own Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo, came out and played magnificently in a shut-out win.
Crosby, Toews (both Hump Day Hunks), Iginla – they were all there. In the matchup against Norway, it almost looked like an exhibition game at times of NHL all-stars on one side, and amateurs on the other.
The stadium was washed in a sea of red.
The players lined up for a hand shake at the end of the game, with Canada winning 8-0 over Norway.

Have you been catching any of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics on TV where you are? Or if you are in Vancouver, are you swept up in the Olympics fever yet?
