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including / here in “Real Clear Sports” (whatever that is) in a bit of “meta” documentation using a screenshot of an archived version of the page.

Ace Correspondents in Edmonton – KK and MC at Stanely Cup Game 6, 2006

Quasi-official Canucks Outsider correspondents (and certified Internet Rockstars) Kris Krug and Megan Cole checking in with wicked excited video blogs from Edmonton game 6.

KK says, “Unlike any sporting event I’ve ever been to! Come check out the Oilers fans going completely nuts before the start of Game 6.”  See the nuttiness on You Tube.

Additional Hi-jinks include:

– Interview with former Mayor Bill Smith
KK sez, ” I sat next to former Mayor of Edmonton Bill Smith at Saturday nights Stanley Cup finals game and did a lil videoblog interview with him. Cool guy. :)”

– Watching the game up with Edmonton 2-0
KK attempts to predict scores with his vast hockey knowledge

– Watching Edmonton force game seven
KK sez, “Check out the last minute of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Edmonton Oilers and the Carolina Hurricanes. Edmonton wins this one 4-0 and forces a game 7 back in Carolina. The crowd is going crazy and doing their best to make me deaf!”

– Visiting the CBC poduction truck
KK sez, “I had a chance to go ‘backstage’ of the Stanley Cup finals with Bob Cole of CBC’s hockey night in Canada. This is their HD TV truck and watching them pull it all together in real-time was pretty frickin’ incredible. Check it out.”

– Partying down on Whyte Ave
KK sez, “Hangin’ out roamin’ the streets of the ‘cool part’ of Edmonton with MC, drunken crazy people, and lots of cops. :P Heh.”
