If you’ve been subscribing to The Crazy Canucks podcast, you already would have known about John, Rebecca, Dave, Alanah and I being part of the Vancouver Canucks’ ad campaign this year. And over the last couple of weeks or so, we’ve been seeing the product of a three-hour long photo shoot with the team.
First, there’s the launch of the Canucks Fanzone, which showcases various Canucks bloggers, podcasters and other media. Second, we’re starting to see our mugs on buses and Sky Train stations around Metro Vancouver.
Apparently, we appear on 55 buses and each of the Sky Train stations. Weird, I know. (By the way, if you see any of the buses or Sky Train posters, take a picture with our picture and you can win a pair of tickets to the Canucks Open practice on October 26th. The tickets are row 4 beside the player benches.)
Anyway, it’s a great feeling being acknowledged by the Canucks organization and I just want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Jamie Ollivier and Bruce Warren from Anton Sledgehammer (the guys who brought us the Ultimate Canucks contest), Kevin Kinghorn (CDC webmaster), Paul Del Monte (Director of Canucks Brand Marketing) and everyone else from the organization. I really do appreciate how much the team is starting to recognize us bloggers and podcasters and the type of role we can play in this new media world.
