Crosby seconds after scoring the Gold Medal Goal for Team Canada men's ice hockey... in OVER TIME! I was so crazy excited watching I almost had a heart attack! It was amazing!
Long Track Speed Skating events. She earned gold, however,
in the 1000 meter race!
Jon Montgomery after realizing that he had won gold for Canada in the men's Skeleton at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. Later on after going for his drug test he got off the Blackcomb Gondola and walked through a crowd of people to get to his interview. As he walked some lady handed him a pitcher of beer. And of course he drank right from the pitcher. Wow, when I win a gold, I want that to happen! I saw the whole thing live in TV. It was truly an amazing Canadian moment.
Now that the games are done, I guess I and all of us have to get back to our normal lives. I would hope, however, that the joy, patriotism, and celebration of pure honest achievement never gets left behind. These games were truly an amazing time in my life, one that I will never forget... and I just watched it form my TV at home. There were SO many amazing moments in these Olympic Winter Games I couldn't list them all here. Here's a link to the CTV Olympic Channel on Youtube. There they have a whole bunch of great moments from the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games.
I am so proud of ALL the athletes who represented Canada and followed their dreams to fruition. And I encourage ALL Canadian athletes who have a dream and are trying their best to represent Canada in the future be it in London 2012 or Sochi 2014 to not give up and do us proud. You've all inspired me to keep striving for my dreams too. When the going gets tough, and it will, I'll think of you.
God bless Canada, my home!
