At the MVP Summit, Canadian MVPs carried valuable hockey pucks. It was an unannounced, "viral" contest where attendees who collected a full set of pucks won a genuine, Canadian Olympic Team hockey jersey.
At lunch at the closing day Japanese MVP Takako Sakurai was still hunting for one last puck. Unfortunately, the winning pucks - and the contest jerseys - were all gone.
I couldn't stand to see her go back to Japan without the Canadian jersey she tried so hard to win, so I peeled off mine (you can see in the photo it still had the tag on it) and made her an honorary Canadian MVP!
What a blast we had at Summit '08. Thanks Microsoft!
