Hot for Hockey: Vancouver 2010 Olympic Style

A dream came true last night when I attended my first ever Winter Olympics mens hockey game. Not just any old hockey game, but for my home team: CANADA! Being the boys' first game in the tournament, I wanted to look my best decked out in our nation's colour, red.
Apologies for these photos not being the most creative but it was hard trying to get style shots in a line up of several thousand!

I broke my own rules from my piece on What Does One Wear to the Hockey Game (no skirts) as I pulled out a high-waisted, grey bandage number for the occasion. Rules are meant for breaking, right??
When the Canadian team stepped onto the ice for the pre-game warmup, the crowd went nuts with chants of "Go Canada Go!" reverberating throughout the stadium. I was especially proud when our very own Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo, came out and played magnificently in a shut-out win.
Crosby, Toews (both Hump Day Hunks), Iginla - they were all there. In the matchup against Norway, it almost looked like an exhibition game at times of NHL all-stars on one side, and amateurs on the other.
The stadium was washed in a sea of red.
The players lined up for a hand shake at the end of the game, with Canada winning 8-0 over Norway.

Have you been catching any of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics on TV where you are? Or if you are in Vancouver, are you swept up in the Olympics fever yet?

Awesome post Liv! Wish we had gotten a chance to meet up. You look super sexy!

That must have been awesome to see the game live! What I love most about watching something live and rooting for your time is just the general atmosphere... there's always so much energy! Great outfit and let's be honest... you don't want to look like everyone else at the game, so wearing a skirt is definitely the way to go!

Super cute sexy outfit...if the word Canuck is in the dictionary your picture should be beside it. We're not about the MEC, Canadian tuxedos, and hockey jerseys...we got some sexiness too.

Amazing! I cannot wait to go to a hockey game.

But you know what I'm even more excited about? CURLING! Tonight!

Goooooo Canada!

YESSSSSSS!!! So awesome. And so jealous that you go to go! I saw the women's game against slovakia, but alas, no men's tix for me. And obviously you saw hump day hunk crosby for the win today? GO CANADA GO!

Hey Live, in response to your message it was a great game. Hiller was crazy, what did he have, 46 saves?

Brodeur was great in the shoot out. Go Canada!

Liv your shirt is adorable. I'm glad I'm visiting the US again so I have access to the Olympics.

Btw, I left you a blog award on my blog!

How exciting! I've only been to one hockey game in my whole entire life, so I can't imagine what it's like to be at an Olympic game. I haven't watched too much on TV, but I intend to make up for it this weekend!
