A Travellerspoint blog

Hello again! ..

overcast 10 °C

Hi Everyone,

Haven't had a lot to write about lately now that I'm busy doing study, but I thought I would update everyone since my last post!

Gryphons won the Homecoming Game, the other team didn't actually score, and were sort of tipped to win. So my first experience of Canadian Football wasn't the most exciting, but the whole atmosphere was cool to experience. I still don't think I could explain the rules if asked, I just cheered when everyone else did.

Last Friday, the other Aussie girls and I got tickets to the ice hockey (or just hockey, as they say here). This was the last preseason game for the NHL, and also how we could afford it (normal season starts at about $300 plus). We watched the Toronto Maple Leafs play Detroit Red Wings. I think I have a new favourite sport! It was all very exciting, with lots of music, singing, and a packed out stadium of crazy fans. They even did the whole Kiss-Cam thing you see on the movies!! The Leafs won :)

On Friday, I am flying down to New York City, where my best friend is flying from Australia to meet me!! We are having a week here during Canadian thanksgiving break to see the sights. So far we have NBA tickets to watch the NY Knicks play the Toronto Raptors. Then we will head back to Guelph together where Kase will stay for another week :)

So.. expect a more exciting post in 2 weeks time! And more photos!!

P.S it is getting cold :(
