NorthGeek Olympics Missions

by Noah Bloom Posted in Olympics

Not only is NorthGeek covering the Olympics, with stimulating video, scintillating words, and word-defying photos, but we’re also part of the Olympics. We’re fans of Canada, athletes, parties, and concerts. We are the Olympics, and here are some of our missions. Fulfill them by February 28. Bring it.

    1. Honour the memory of 21 year old Georgian luge competitor Nodar Kumaritashvili
    2. Be there in person for Canadian Olympic gold
    3. Meet the lovely and blisteringly fast Chandra Crawford
    4. Sneak some words with the little pepper Jenn Heil, Canada bump skier extraordinaire
    5. Rate the best free event
    6. Interview with the hottest live band
    7. Track down the Snow Leopard (Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong)
    8. Wave a Canadian flag wildly as Canada wins gold, wherever we may be
    9. Have our adoring fans Twitpic photos with the NorthGeek crew
    10. Convince the world that the best way to experience the Olympics is not from the official media partners, but from locals and passionate non-accredited sources
