After sitting through the nail-biting hockey game last night, we just HAVE to congratulate our Canadian friends and readers today! Not only on winning the Gold with Hockey and Curling, but also on the friendly hosting of yet another wonderful Winter Olympics.Â Your athletes and teams winning so many medals is well deserved!
Go Canada from your friends in Europe!
I’m a Canadian simmer living in British Columbia and I would like to say thank you for this post on your site (which I look in on regularly) it was a nice surprise. You all should come and visit !!
Thanks for the compliments! Here in Canada it seems to be getting a bad rap from local broadcasters but I think it went well and I’m proud of the organizers, many of whom were volunteers. Despite the weather it was a very competitive Olympics and the best athletes were only the best by a narrow margin which made it even more nailbiting for all nations.
My wife and I had a great time watching on TV. This was the most entertaining winter Olympics I recall. Canada did a great job as host country, IMO. And you can’t get better scenery than Vancouver & Whistler as the backdrop!
