Question about "Proclaimed days"

Postby CB123 » Fri Jun 01, 2007 4:56 pm

Obviously everyone here knows that after the Lions won the Grey Cup Sam Sullivan proclaimed Tuesday November 21st 2006 BC Lions Day.

Then just this week he proclaimed Tuesday May 29th Vancouver Giants Day (for winning the Memorial Cup).

Now when Lions day was announced every where I read about it, it had the year on the end so "Tuesday November 21st 2006" was BC Lions day. Does that mean that JUST that one day was Lions day? Or is it every November 21st?

Because now when ever I read about the Giants day, all it says is "Tuesday May 29th"? No date attached?

Even from the Giants website headline ... "VANCOUVER MAYOR SAM SULLIVAN & CITY COUNCIL PROCLAIMED TUESDAY MAY 29 AS
VANCOUVER GIANTS DAY"

So what, did the Lions get shafted? or is it the Giants/Media are just screwing up what they are writing?
BC Lions - 2006 Grey Cup Champions!
USC Trojans - 2007 Rose Bowl Champions!
Team Canada - 2007 World Junior Hockey Champions!
Vancouver Giants - 2007 Memorial Cup Champions!

Remember isolating as "Tuesday, May 29th" only qualifies it every 8 years or so....

That is what pride is all about. Lions roar, let us prey!

Not only has the mayor declared the day to honour the Giants, he has decided to use the team to represent the entire city. Look who the mayor and the premier presented a Giants jersey to. But of course, I think the governor would rather wear a certain hockey jersey from a certain team in his state right now.

Makes me wonder how many people were specifically tasked with ensuring the name was spelled correctly. What a PR disaster it would be to have a "proofreading malfunction" at a time like this, eh? He's even pointing at it as if to give kudos for getting it right!

Only on that day. Unless of course the Lions repeat this year.

With the latest proclamation by Sam Sullivan, it looks like JUST November 21, 2006 was BC Lions Day. And JUST November 18, 2007 will be BC Lions Day again.

I know, it gets hard to track.

So why not....

1) Declare EVERY third week of November as BC Lions week? :yes:

If that doesn't cover enough of a range if the Lions play in additional playoff series, then

2) Declare EVERY November as BC Lions month! :wink:
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。
