The amazing team at Molson has done an amazing job in creating a great space for Hockey and Olympic fans to enjoy hockey at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games.
In their partnership with with Canada and the IHF. They have been able to provide a comfortable, safe space for players and their family to have some quality time together nearby the Canada Hockey Place (GM PLace).
We at Vancouver Access have had the opportunity to experience the house on a few occasions and I will be watching the Gold medal game and Closing ceremonies at the Molson Canadian Hockey House with new and old friends.
Last Saturday I went to Whitehorse for Yukon day.. (Stories coming soon..) I’ve been slacking off on the final production trying to capture as much of the games as I could in the moment…
Anyway, while in the Yukon I met Ron Flatter, a famed Radio Sport 927 Australia personality…
So when I was unable to go to the Molson Canadian Hockey House for the Canada vs USA game on the 22nd, I called Ron and he immediately accepted to go on my behalf and cover the event.
He created this fun podcast of his interaction with the Molson Canada Hockey House fans.

The very humble Bilodeau replied in both French and English, offering much praise to the Own the Podium program, his family (in particular his brother), and his fellow athletes. “This extraordinary effort does not come in isolation,” said Peter Judge, CEO of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association. “First and foremost we are thanking Canada.”
Running on 3 hours of sleep after many media meetings, appearances and television spots in the last 18 hours, Bilodeau did a great job of even addresses tough questions from press about judging at sporting events like his. “The only thing I can control is my performance,” he noted.
When asked what his coach’s last words of wisdom were before he went down his medal-winning run he simply replied, “I said to him, ‘thank you’.”
With many more press conferences, interviews, and photo ops on his horizon Bilodeau is ultimately looking forward to seeing his family tonight. He added, “for me it’s just the beginning of a great party & all of Canada is invited.”

The deadline is quickly approaching for the end of submissions to the Canada CODE website as part of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Canada CODE is part of the digital edition, CODE, of the 2010 Cultural Olympiad. CODE is made up of four parts: CODE Live, an 18 music and digital media festival, CODE Screens 2010, an interactive journey that brings the art to your home computer, CODE Motion Pictures, which is a film line-up of commissioned short films from Canadian filmmakers and Canada CODE, a user-generated photo, text and remix experience. The coolest thing is that all of the content that is uploaded to the Canada CODE website, including remixes, will be put into a pool of potential material that could appear on the giant projection screens during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
