What a ride the Olympics were! I am suffering from huge withdrawal today…I so want to turn the TV to CTV and watch Brian Williams and all the events. I was very proud to be a Canadian in the last few weeks. Not only that, but I was incredibly proud of all the athletes who competed. Thank you to VANOC for these games…they have inspired the nation. That may sound cheesy, but I don’t think I have ever felt so much common pride with my fellow Canadians before. We displayed a very non-Canadian-like patriotism that is pretty much unheard of in this country. Thank you to the world, who came to play in our backyard, and helped to make it the success it was.
And who will ever forget Sidney Crosby’s overtime goal for Gold yesterday? I know my father and 2 older brothers can tell me exactly where they were when Paul Henderson (who recently revealed that he’s battling cancer) scored the winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series. I was only 2 and a half, so I have no recollection. This goal by Sid the Kid will go down in history for a whole new generation of hockey fans. It was truly magical. Hats off to the USA, who, according to all the experts, shouldn’t have even been in the gold medal game. They played a fantastic tournament and had every Canadian on edge for an entire 3 plus periods of hockey.
