Vancouver

I’m in Vancouver, B.C., getting ready for our cruise to Hawaii.

I’m unprepared for this.

I figured, I live in South Texas, I’m going to Hawaii and I’m only going to be in Canada for a couple of days so I don’t need any cold weather gear. Cold weather meaning anything below 60 degrees. That turned out to be a ridiculous assumption. It’s dropping down into the 40’s at night. Which means I can’t do a damn thing after 6 pm. 

Totally my fault. My wife brought cold weather gear. As a matter of fact, I did too. It’s in the back seat of my car at the airport. You see, back in San Antonio, it’s hot enough to melt the sun.

So, that means I get to go shopping in Vancouver. This is not good, because Vancouver is New York-like in its cost of living. Maybe I can pick up some Canucks gear here. I’ll have to liquor myself up to get over the pain.

Vacation. It’s good no matter what.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

  1. I live in the Vancouver area and I agree it has been getting cool at night. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy our beautiful city.

    • I love Vancouver! This is not my first time there, we came at the end of one our cruises and liked it so much we stayed an extra day. That trip was in August, so it was quite a bit warmer.
      Vancouver is probably the nicest city in North America. I can’t say that for certainty, because I haven’t been to every major city on the continent. It is certainly the nicest one I’ve visited.
