    Out and about today...

    Blue Smurfs everywhere. Not unusual in Vancouver but now they're sporting the Paralympics symbol. Which has changed from the old triple sperm symbol:



    ... replaced by the triple anorexic sperm symbol:

    We have 2 guys from our sled hockey team that will be there...they play for our Under 20 US team and they are going to be competing in some games there. They are not able to qualify to play for medals...but to basically showcase the future of sled hockey. It should be fun!

    And I know two on the Norwegian sledge hockey team and another one in the curling. I haven't seen all the names of the athletes yet so I don't know if I know more people.

    24 hours to go. Everyone knows by now that Sam Sullivan was appointed Ambassador to the Paralympics. Since then, he's raised the issue of Inaccessible Balconies for Paralympians in the brand spanking new Olympic village. Hundreds of more condos without the common sense of universal design.

    Sam Sullivan, the city's former mayor, said while he understands the concerns the design team had with water leaking from a balcony into a suite, more effort should have been made to make the balconies accessible. All suites have a curb between the living area and the balcony. "That's a scandal," said Sullivan, who was recently appointed ambassador to the Paralympics. "I just talked to the guy building the Georgia hotel and he told me he had to fight for it but he has now achieved an agreement that he can build flush balconies. So if a private sector guy in a very expensive building like that can do it, why couldn't the Athletes' Village do it?"
