Not only is Amazing Race Canada back with a vengeance, so are Gord and Wayne with their weekly video recaps from Edmonton's Druid Pub. We're not as dramatic and exciting as the first episode but we try. Hope you enjoy this. And if you're in Edmonton, we're usually at the Druid doing the vids on Wednesdays, around lunchtime. Come by and say hi. Two videos this week. Leave comments if you can.
It's the final Gord and Wayne video recap of Amazing Race Canada Season 3. We've had lots of fun doing these recaps this year, mostly because we shoot it on location at one of our fav Edmonton pubs, the Druid on Jasper. Thanks to Jane, Little Marco and Big Marco at the Druid for letting us come in, drink beer and talk about Amazing Race Canada. Great people, great place. Not sure what we'll we do with ourselves on Thursdays for the next while, probably just go to the Druid and hang out at lunch. Thanks to all of you folks for watching and enjoying our antics. Today, Wayne's a bit subdued cause his kid's been sick all week but he managed to make Gord cry. Off-camera of course. See ya later.
Back at the Druid after a very special Amazing Race Canada. This leg took place in Edmonton, our hometown, and featured some great parts of the city. Also, we can officially say that Gord was an extra in the show, one of the drinkers during the Roadblock at Fort Edmonton Park. Classic Gord, at a bar when things are happening. It was pretty cool to see him on the big TV while racers came in to do the task. Unfortunately, that's all Gord can say about his appearance on the race, that he was an extra.
We're back at the Druid to discuss Episode 10. More beer is drunk although Wayne seems a bit annoyed with Gord cause during the credits of this episode, it seemed like Gord was an extra in Episode 11, which takes place in Edmonton, and didn't tell him. Of course, we all know Gord can't say anything. And to be perfectly clear, he hasn't said a single word, not even if he was in that episode or not. But it makes from some funny tension. Again, we decided to so a two parter.
We got a bunch of comments about last week's two-parter video recap that we decided to do another one. It's also so much easier to edit this when we do two. There's also a little treat for Matt somewhere in the recaps, something he requested on Twitter. Also, Ope called our videos heartwarming but we really think Ope needs to have more interesting things to do on a Friday night than watch our videos. But who are we to argue; it's kind of nice to have teams watch our silly videos and comment on them
Hey folks, Gord and Wayne are back for the video recaps. Since Gord was gone for two weeks, I decided to split this week's recap into two parts.
This will be our final video for a couple of weeks. Gord is heading to Hawaii to celebrate his 25th Anniversary. Not sure if Wayne will do video but since it's no fun to hang out at a bar by oneself, probably not. Maybe if a special guest shows up. So enjoy and see you on video at the end of August.
It's a long weekend over here at Gord and Wayne HG so instead of putting the video out on Monday, we wanted to get it into the world a few days prior to Episode 5. We were a little punchy in this one and rambled a bunch but managed to get it down to a respectable 7 or so minutes. Again, thanks to the Druid Pub on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton for giving us a spot to shoot.
Finally, our video for Episode 3 is up. Sorry for the delay but Wayne was on vacation (growing a beard of sorts) while Gord was housesitting out in the country. He's got some story about donkeys and a dead turkey. Maggots are also involved. Anyway, here's the video recap and once again, thanks to the Druid Pub on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton for providing the great shooting location.
We're on time with the video recap at Gord and Wayne HQ today, got it done just before Gord put up his post. Darker beer this time, which provided Wayne with a couple of beer mustaches. And no food. We decided that having food around just distracts Wayne. And Gord was annoyed that he didn't get to eat much. Since Wayne is going on holidays next week, we might to have a video up. If we do, it will be late. Enjoy, share with your friends, comment if you wish.
