The end of Olympics....the wrap-up

So, first thing is first, Canada won the Gold in mens hockey. Therefore, bumping up our gold count to 14 for this games....the most golds won by a host nation to date. The previous holder was the USA.

We saw the first gold medal won by Alexandre Bilideau, which was a wonderful performance

We watched while Australia got the gold in the womens ariels by Lydia Lassila.

We watched Shaun White just smoke down the hill for the gold in mens halfpipe for the USA

I felt kinda bad that David Morris, who dyed his hair Wottle Green for the olympics JUST missed qualifying for mens ariels.

Overall, I enjoyed watching the live feed thorugh the internet, and even got my other half watching the hockey game with me (since he is Australian)

I have no problem for cheering on other athletes from other countries. I will of course cheer for Canada first, but the Aussies will always hear cheers from me.

Now if Australia had a hockey team, I would be two sided as to whom to cheer for.

Now to wait 2 years till the summer olympics.
