The Vancouver Olympics

I'm probably the least athletic-minded person on the planet, so it comes as a total surprise to me that I've actually been watching the Olympics this past couple of weeks and enjoying them. Granted, they're being held in my country, and I am fiercely patriotic, but I'm surprised at how excited I get when I'm watching. I actually had tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat watching the Canadian men's team pursuit speed skaters win (my apologies if I got the name of the sport wrong) And don't even get me started on how jazzed I was to read that the Canadian women's hockey team had won gold. I actually wished that I'd caught the game (and not to sound like a bad Canadian, but I never watch hockey--I leave that to my brother.;o) ) So don't be surprised if I sit down and watch the men's game tomorrow. How thrilling--Canada vs US. I better have my tissues ready. Whether Canada wins or loses, I'm going to get weepy.

LOL Judy. I was SOOOOO not into them this time. You have a sport which amuses me. That women's' ice hockey. HOnestly I don't understand the meantality of a woman who actually goes out of her way to increase the circumference of her tush.

Goodness me!

I never quite recovered from the Olympics closing ceremony of the one previous to Sydney's Olympics. Forgot which place that was. They had a bunch of people with blow up kangaroos attached onto them. One of them deflated and I'm afraid I never recovered from the experience of laughing at this site.

I noticed on the news that Canada had blow up mooses (mises?) and this site resurrected the memory of deflated roos.
