Especially after that gold medal hockey game. Talk about stressful. I'm mean when you're country's national pride is on the line and the opposing team ties it up with 24 seconds left in the game, it is the stuff coronaries are made of. But how awesome that our very own national hockey icon, that is the one after The Gretzky, scored the winning goal. It couldn't have been played out better had someone actually written a script. Well for the Canadians anyway. The U.S. team were awesome. They sure gave us an incredible run for our money. Speaking of which, the announcer at the beginning of the game said they were people outside the building with 10 grand cash wanting to buy a ticket and no one was selling theirs. Oi. What I could do with 10 grand.
Anyway, the closing ceremonies were great. How awesome that Joannie Rochette carried our flag. My favorite part? The giant beavers, mounties and moose! You can't get any better than that. Us Canadians do know how to throw a quirky party! LOL. Loved the whole spoofing of what Canadians are most known for. We so know how to laugh at ourselves, don't we? Totally could have done without Shatner and that other female comics humor, though.
So now they are over. No more mentioning Olympics on the blog. I'll have to find other things to write about. Back to real life. And I think a good place to start will be planning for this blogging event:
