I can’t remember the last time I’ve enjoyed a show as much as Inazuma Eleven. I know that Inazuma Eleven isn’t new and had actually wrapped up in April of 2011, but I’ve been slowly wading into it before diving in about a month or two ago.

Alain Vigneault has accepted a two year extension to his contract as head coach of the Vancouver Canucks.
There had been a lot of speculation and rumors over the fate of Vigneault after the Canucks’ first round exit in the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Despite that, Vigneault had helped the Canucks achieve their best season with 111 points during the 2011-2012. Since joining the team in 2006, the Canucks have claimed two Presidents’ Trophies, five Northwest Division Titles, five 100+ point seasons and one trip to the Stanley Cup Final under Vigneault’s leadership.
Prior to arriving in Vancouver, Vigneault coached the Canucks AHL farm team, the Manitoba Moose, and before that serving as head coach of the Montreal Canadiens.

Last night, a supermoon lit up the evening skies providing an up close look at our lunar neighbour. Not as large as I expected, but it was still pretty brilliant.
I ventured out last night with my camera and 55-300mm lens with the hope that the moon would be close enough for some unexpected detail. Unfortunately, by the time it rose over the west coast, it had started moving away. Nevertheless, I was able to get some shots, albeit without the extreme detail I was hoping for (that, or I need a better telephoto lens).
