I was just hoping for some Peg Sheety representation, so Toews getting on made me go " :rockon: ".

The goalies were pretty much a lock with Ward having injured himself. Biggest shocker for me was no Bouwmeester. LULZ Flames fans had all their hopes dashed when "only" Iginla was included.

JPH!P :heart:'s Fushigidane, ChrNo, Jab & marimari. Always.

VANCOUVER — The city is spending $650,000 on 6,000 Olympic banners on major streets, bridges and around 2010 venues.

The banners, which cost more than $100 each, went up on Cambie Street Wednesday.

"Half that cost is to produce the banner and about half to install it," said City of Vancouver spokeswoman Lesli Boldt.

"We hope to have them all installed by the end of the week."

The banners, made in Barrie, Ont., will be placed on Cambie and Granville streets from SW Marine Drive to downtown and on Hastings Street from Boundary Road to downtown. They'll also be on the city's False Creek Bridges and around venues.

Boldt said the city hopes to use the banners after the Games as a legacy.

"We converted the previous Olympic banners into bags for schoolkids and put school supplies in them and worked with the Downtown Eastside non-profit to make that happen," she said.

Boldt said the city is spending the money from Vancouver's $20-million Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Reserve Fund, "to create some excitement and make Vancouver look great for the Games."

The city also spent $25,000 putting a four-page newspaper supplement in the Vancouver Sun which Boldt described as "Host City 101."

She said the insert will also be available at community centres and libraries and is a basic guide for residents "on what it means to be a host city, how to get around and different things you can participate in."

The guide includes a Top 10 list of ways to be a good host, including things like offering help to visitors looking at maps and where to send people to get visitor information, police or medical help.

It also urges people to "share your love of the city" and "be patient on public transit," as well as "enjoy yourself."

In other news, Vancouver raises parking rates to $6 per hour and extended the hours! Not to mention an increase in property taxes
