Vancouver Olympics.

Yeah, I'm kinda late on this. Late on everything these days it seems.

So, the Olympics. We watched a lot of the events, nearly all of the gold medal ceremonies, and we ate dinner in front of the TV often. We cheered and clapped and held our breath and, sometimes, shed a tear or two. In other words, we enjoyed the Games enormously.

On the final day, we gathered in the den to watch the gold medal game between Canada and the US. I swear, I have never been so stressed during a hockey game in my life. When it was over, when Crosby scored the winning goal in overtime, every one of us screamed and it was all I could do to not break down in tears.

Although I wouldn't want the Olympics to go on forever, I was sorry to see them end. And I think I can safely speak for everyone in this household and say that, win or lose, we were very proud of all of our athletes.
