90 days to go – Another countdown milestone!

November 14, 2009

090 - Mascots

90 days to go until the Opening Ceremonies!!  It’s hard to believe that it’s so close now.  To celebrate Coca-Cola has a ’90 days to go’ pin that will be available for purchase in the Olympic Superstore on the morning of Saturday, November 14th, when we open at 9:30am.  And yes, we do have them in store already!  I saw them this evening!  They are limited so it will be a maximum of 4 pins per person to make sure that as many people as are interested get a chance to have some.  So come on down if you’re interested!  I’ll be around from 9:30 to 5:00pm and it would be great to see you!

(No, no picture of the new pin tonight… you have to wait to see it tomorrow!  After it’s actually been released! 🙂 ).

*     *     *     *     *

The other big news today, the BC Court of Appeal decided to dismiss the appeal of the women ski jumpers to be included in the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.  Ski jumping is the only Winter Olympic Sport that is only competed by men.  This has to do with IOC rules and various arguements that I won’t get into here.  However, I feel that while the women’s ski jumpers are very disappointed with this result, their fight has not been unnoticed and I expect that we’ll likely see them compete in Sochi 2014!  Good luck to them all!

Hmm… I think there are only two final quick topics for tonight… First up – The final phase of ticket sales happens at 10am on Saturday, November 14th (today!!).  So if you’d like to try your luck at adding some tickets to your event calendar be sure to try in the morning on the Vancouver2010.com website!  Good luck on your ticket adventures!

Tickets mascots qmAnd lastly, just a reminder about my latest contest!!  It’s a chance to win one of the new Coca-Cola ’90 days to go’ pins!!  This is a very quick contest… I will draw the winner’s name on Sunday evening (November 15th)… but to enter, you need to get someone you know (or don’t know if you’re particularly cunning and devious) to post a comment answering this question: What sort of creature is Quatchi? And get them to include your name! (First name  and last intial will be sufficient!).  The names posted in the comments with the answer will be entered to win this pin!  Good luck to everyone!!

*     *     *     *     *

Wow, I was wishing a lot of good luck to everyone tonight, but that’s okay, who couldn’t do with some good luck!  Happy 90 days to go!!  Have a great day!
