We made enough for a 6-pack of the good stuff!
What an incredible Olympics we had! Team Canada’s wrap up to complete our Hockey lock-out was exciting and worth the 7AM wake-up. I love the fact that we own Hockey and Curling, as we should. Next Olympics we should repeat this but own Snow-Boarding as well. There you have it.
I was at the Eaton Centre this afternoon where a television had been set up beneath a giant Canadian flag. Along with a large and growing crowd we watched the Men’s Hockey Team defeat Latvia 2-1.
As of Day 12, we’re at:
Alpine Skiing: 1 Bronze
Bobsled: 1 Gold
Freestyle Skiing: 3 Gold, 3 Silver, 1 Bronze
Figure Skating: 3 Silver
Snowboarding: 1 Silver, 1 Bronze
Speed Skating: 1 Silver, 1 Bronze
Short Track: 1 Gold, 1 Silver
I missed a couple of days of score keeping because the Olympics wouldn’t be considerate of my flu and kept going while I couldn’t – sheesh! Luckily, Canada decided to ease off on the medal winning so it wouldn’t look like I was shirking my responsibility.
Nothing happened on Day 6 and then Patrick Chan won another Silver in Men’s Free Skate, bringing his personal total to a pair of Silver Medals destined to be some bad-ass cuff-links.
An honourable mention goes out to the Men’s Hockey Team who delivered one heluva third period against the U.S. I tuned into the game a few minutes into the third with the Americans up 1-0 and then BAM! Canada showed them the rockets red glare!
Today on the other hand, not only did my flu subside, but Denny Morrison won a Bronze Medal in Men’s 1500m Speed Skating. Like Patrick Chan, Denny could make some cuff-links as well but I think he’d be better or winning another so he’ll have a matching pair.
