Primarily Vancouver Canucks related including: Captain Marcus Naslund, goaltenders variety  of Gary Bromley, Kirk McLean, Dan Cloutier plus tickets stubs from Vancouver Canucks, Seattle Thunderbirds, schedule from Vancouver Giants, plus Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky to rub off some greatness, and a list of Stanley Cup champions torn from a newspaper. Plus, Vancouver Canucks puck #inventory

Of such items, many many more exist in boxes, this just appeared behind broken glass.

Media: Stanley Cup snap in “Real Clear Sports” (2009)

Memento: Stanley Cup snap in Real Clear Sports

As an enthusiast of creative commons “alt copyright”, I publish/shared many photos under an “non-commercial/attribution/sharealike license” which resulted in my images popping up in many places, often not with the proper attribution and dubious commercialization, but hey, life’s complicated like that sometimes. Nevertheless, I do try to document these things for the permanent record. In this case, my photo of the Stanley Cup (snapped at an NHL trophy exhibit at SLC Olympics in 2002) used and shared in many places, including / here in “Real Clear Sports” (whatever that is) in a bit of “meta” documentation using a screenshot of an archived version of the page.

Any other Canucks & NHL hockey fans here in Japan? Just curious about who’s excited for breakfast time hockey firing up for the “play-in to playoffs”? Who’s yer team?

Hockey NW Worksheet – social media community worksheet, circa 1997

Here’s my Hockey NW pre-social-media-online-community biz plan i mentioned @fergusson kinda fun to reflect upon

Hockey NW Worksheet

Goals:

— Promote Hockey culture and sport in the Pacific Northwest area by producing and marketing a destination site for hockey fans in the northwest

— Provide advanced web design & hosting services for major teams in the area

— Market “deluxe” products & services to minor hockey teams to increase excitement

— Earn increased revenues for Major teams by cross-marketing tickets, jerseys & packages to a wider, regional audience

— Build a duplicable model of creating and promoting a virtual community

What it will be:

The Hockey NW web site will be a state-of the art, “no-holds-barred” database driven, graphically involved and designed to provide a total user experience including:

— information and statistics for every player on participating teams,

— ticket purchasing, as well as tour packages including transportation, tickets and accommodations

— instructional videos about hockey, penalties, fundamentals, highlights

— “home pages” for each participating teams including schedules, pictures, “custom” hockey cards

— fantasy leagues, modifying the popular on-line models to create a game using all players from participating teams, regardless of league or level
