As far as updating everybody about Mike's "vacation" (Does Mike Holmes ever really take a vacation?) we're going to pick up where we left off yesterday. Yesterday, the Holmes Spot signed off right as Mike was finishing his segment on the Fanny Kiefer Show. As a thank you gift, she gave Mike a bottle of Crown (Canadian whiskey). I'll bring the Coke!
Mike and MJ's next stop? Off to give a pep talk to Team Saskatchewan! Interesting, I see a camera and a cameraman with a Holmes on Homes style "CREW" shirt on. Wonder where the video is going to end up??? Posted yesterday around 10:15AM PST:
Onto the next one. Off to meet Team Saskatchewan.
While with Team Saskatchewan, Mike Tweeted this yesterday around 11:30AM PST:
@Skills_Canada It's all about teaching the next generation of trades #sccVancouver2013 #teamsaskatchewan
After meeting and greeting Skills Canada competitors, Mike and MJ were off once again, this time to appear on the Canadian entertainment show The Rush. Posted yeserday around 12PM PST:
About to go on The Rush--what a rush! shaw.ca/therush
After The Rush, there was no time to rest! Mike headed off to the rehearsal for the Skills Canada Opening Ceremony. Mike Tweeted this around 4:30PM PST:
@Skills_Canada The rehearsal before the big show tonight. It's GO GO GO #sccVancouver2013
Posted last night around 5:15PM PST:
Going over some last minute details @Skills_Canada. I'm ready. Bring it. #sccVancouver2013
Mike was impressed by a cameraman on rollerblades. Apparently he's never seen that kind of thing before. (Living in Vegas, and being a photographer at many large events such as the World Series of Poker Finals held on 7/7/07, I've seen photographers and cameramen doing much more innovative things to get that perfect shot! Rollerblades are practically standard fare for huge events!) Posted last night 8PM PST:
What a busy night. I'm sure after that the guys were off to bed, only to wake up this morning and do it all over again. Posted this morning at 8AM PST:
This is your wake-up call, Vancouver. About to go on CTV Morning Live with MJ.
Mike Tweeted this at 8:10AM PST:
Rise and shine #ctvmorninglive
Tweeted around 9:45AM PST:
Talk about morning glory @CTVMorningLive
After the Morning Show, Mike was off again to the competition. Again, another camera(wo)man with a "CREW" shirt. Is there a video update coming soon? Exciting stuff! Posted around 10:45AM PST:
Burn baby, burn @Skills_Canada
Judging by the trend of the blow by blow account of Mike and MJ's day for the past couple of days, more updates and pictures to come! I can't wait!
