when you could drive in this city. Today it just came out that Vancouver rates as the second most traffic congested city in North America right behind LA. Yep, all them bike lanes sure are making a big difference.

祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪和溫哥華白帽女子隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。

改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

幸福和繁榮的馬年。

恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

When we had no smog.

First time I noticed it was golfing at The Falls course, many years ago, way out of town. Looking back at the smog created in Vancouver, which, because of the off shore breezes, was moving towards the suburbs. I had never noticed the smog before.

When we had no gangs. No drug crime. No shootings. No break ins beating up elders. No traffic jams. Inexpensive real estate. Kids could go out and play all day unsupervised.

Still have free parks. Good water. Reasonably good air. Relatively safe.

bumper stickers, that said " I found it", which were made by a religious group

the funny thing is, other bumper stickers started showing up saying " I lost it".

Then one day I saw one that said " who the hell needs it". :rotf:

If memory serves, this would have been mid to late 70's

I mean no offence to people who are religious, I like the sense of humour.

Who remembers how different a ride on the skytrain used to look in 1986 versus now?

There is definitely a huge rivalry between Vancouver and Toronto in many areas including sports and there's definitely a love-hate relationship between the two cities. But the love aspect from Vancouver (and all of Canada for that matter, possibly notwithstanding Montreal since their Expos couldn't do the same) was very apparent and evident when they were so ecstatic when the Blue Jays won the World Series in 1992 and repeated it again in 1993. Here are the deciding game 6's in its entirety for both World Series.
