  1. The Canada line is just an extension of the Skytrain, Vancouvers main form of rail transit, and that is a part of Translink which runs Skytrain, The Seabus, and the entire Bus system in the Vancouver area. That one particular route goes from richmond/YVR all the way to waterfront station in downtown.
  2. No worries dude. I know all the spots to see Anyway, your hostel is roughly a 25 min drive from YVR. Shouldnt be too expensive but keep in mind a lot of cabbies here like to take the extra long routes. Id consider taking the canada line from YVR to your hostel as it stops in Yaletown (10 min walk from your hostel) but keep in mind it might be a pain hauling your gear from the station to your hostel and vice versa. Also, if you intend on taking a lot of public transit i recommend you get a compass card as soon as you can and load like 20 bucks onto it. Itll make the transit a lot easier as our zoning and pricing is confusing at times.

  4. I would totally take you up on that offer, however Ill likely be camping up in squamish that weekend. heres a list of stuff you should consider doing while youre here. If youre in the Downtown area you can belt out all of these in a day Stanley Park/Lions gate bridge Art Gallery English bay Gastown BC Place Granville Island If youre looking for some solid places to grab a drink id suggest The Cambie Craft Beer Market Library Square public house Steamworks Pub Speakeasy And if you have the time in your trip you can take the 15 min seabus over to my hometown of North Van. If you do, here's a list of things you could do/see in my area Lonsdale quay, (your central hub to anywhere in the city) Grouse Mountain Grouse Grind if youre ambitious Ambleside beach Park Royal Mall Deep Cove Village Hike up Quarry Rock (a bit of a trek but worth the journey) Hopefully you get blessed with some sun when youre here. Nothing quite beats walking along the downtown seawall and through Stanley Park in the summertime. Just.... dont go anywhere near hastings and main st. Stay away from that area at all costs. Its like The Walking Dead over there. EDIT: If you plan on biking, MOST CERTAINLY head to North Van, preferably to Lynn Valley/Lynnmour/Deep Cove. Fantastic trails all over the city.
  5. Okay.... what? As a Canucks fan and season ticket holder who attended that game 7 i can most certainly say there is no way any canucks fan inside that building or watching it anywhere spared a thought about McSorely for even a second. The Canucks lost that game because they were tired, injured, and simply beaten down by a better team who deserved the cup. No one blames anyone for that loss except for the fact the team was done mentally and physically after game 5. There is no McSorely voodoo with the Canucks at all. The "many people" you claim believe that are probably tweekers on Hastings and Main. And If YOU genuinely believe that, i want what your smoking.
  6. No whiteout in pittsburgh this year wtf?
  7. One second thought, If I made a long intro, like 60+ seconds I would chose "American Life" by Primus. For a short one like 30-40 seconds I would chose the guitar solo from "Eyes Without a Face" by Billy Idol
  8. June 15th 2011. Canucks lose game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final at home, on my birthday, and a riot ensues. I cried from the 5 min mark of the 3rd period all night long until 2am. Didn't stop, just kept crying. Any Local craft beer > Colt .45 > Corona > 50 feet of crap > The Rest. Colt .45 is like "the room" of beer. It's so heinously bad it's good, and I enjoy drinking it when I don't have the money for good beer. Coldplay is in my top 3 of favorite bands atm, alongside Metallica, and Primus.
  9. Would it not be fair to just open up 1 or 2 sections for away fans? Segregate them like they do in European soccer, make a cap on how many tickets are available, sell the lot of tickets in that section(s) to the Blackhawks, then they can sell them to STH or whoever online as a "travel pack." Both teams make money on it and that way the Hawks fans can still go to the game.
  10. Apparently winning the Champions League isn't enough to keep your job at Madrid. What a joke.
  11. I can't stand cheering the thought of cheering for either.... still, the thought of seeing Kesler raise the cup makes me wretch personal trauma*. Anyone brave enough to make a prediction? I think the Hawks will take it at home, in six. *to quote Mr McMahon Weren't you a Canucks fan?
  12. One day, one day I will find a decent SANE girl.... One day... Goddammit Tinder....
