Just a note to let you know that, starting Wednesday morning bright and early (7 a.m. Toronto time; 5 a.m. Salt Lake City time, for all you readers there), I'll be live-texting the Canada vs. Italy men's hockey opener.
|Here's your mascot.|
(Note: Being a bit of a snob, I don't call it live blogging because it also functions as a news story on the website, without the unlimited means of hotlinks and open comments and all the goodies that make for a real blog. But if you wanna call it a blog -- hey, go right ahead).
Here's the schedule of the games I'll be doing. Of course everyone's invited:
Wednesday: Men, Canada v Italy, 7 a.m.
Thursday: Men, Canada v Germany, 2 p.m.
Friday: Women, semifinal, Canada v Finland or U.S., time TBA.
Monday Feb. 20: Women's final, 2:30 p.m.
Tuesday Feb. 21: Men, Canada v Czech Republic, 10:30 a.m.
Wednesday Feb. 22: Men, quarterfinal, time TBA.
Friday Feb. 24: Men, semifinal, time TBA.
And of course, that's the official JABS
prop Olympic mascot, fresh off scooping all the dough (again!) in the annual Super Bowl party.
