Congratulations Team Canada

By | Feb 28, 2010

Congratulations Team Canada on winning the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for Ice Hockey!  I don’t know if it came to be; but estimates I heard predicted that 16 million Canadians (1/2 of the country’s population) were expected to tune in to watch the defeat of the Americans.  To the defeated, you are saluted.  The Americans played a great game – Ryan Miller was absolutely fantastic – but hockey belongs to Canada.

This  medal also gave Canada a 14th gold medal – the most any country had ever earned in a Winter Olympics.   This is an incredible feat, considering that Canada previously hosted a Summer Olympics in Montreal and a Winter Olympics in Calgary without winning a gold on homesoil. This has been a controversial Olympics, given some of the problems that occurred (especially with regards to the bobsled course).   However, things turned out pretty well, I’d say.

During the Olympics there were some incredible stories – such as Joanie Rochette who won a Bronze medal despite the death of her mother during the Olympics (in Vancouver no less).  Here’s to London 2012!

By the way, Canada is officially ranked on top of the medal table, meaning Canada wins the Olympics.
