My World Junior Diary – Day 08 – The Return Of The Upgrade

I figured out why I’ve been upgraded three times now (more on the third one later). My seat up in the 300 section is the opposite side to the TV camera’s, so they’re moving a bunch of people down so theres more people in the seats the cameras show and then the arena doesn’t look as empty as it has been.

Day six started in the usual way, I woke up way earlier than I wanted to, watched Sportscentre and grabbed a bite to eat before coming back to my room to write the previous days blog.

So after I uploaded yesterdays entry I looked at my City Pass ticket to find out what I haven’t done that is near to my hotel, so yesterday morning was spent in the Royal Ontario Museum.
