Couldn’t Have Said It Better… Vancouver Is Awesome

In Couldn't Have Said It Better, Other People's Opinions, Vancouver Events on August 27, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Vancouver is Awesome

I admit I was initially pretty neutral about the Olympics coming to Vancouver. I hadn’t really given it much thought, didn’t think much about its impact on the city either way, and didn’t follow any of the political debates surrounding the event. But then I caught my first whiff of excitement as crowds gathered to watch the Olympic Torch pass through their respective neighbourhoods and I was suddenly one of the overly-enthused zombies trolling the city to make as many memories of this once-in-a-lifetime experience as possible.

Caught up in all that hullabaloo, I only managed to post two blogs about the Olympics (one of them actually was a post about post-Olympics Vancouver). To this day, I regret my posting delinquincy at this momentous time in Vancouver’s history and culture. .. But thank goodness for Vancouver is Awesome Managing Editor/ Executive Director Bob Kronbauer.

Today, Bob posted this comprehensive retrospective of all Olympics-related articles published to Vancouver is Awesome. So if you’re feeling nostalgic and want to read some  informative and often hilarious posts (and watch some videos to boot!) about this glorious time in our city’s history, do check it out.
