I just have to say...

Canada ROCKS!!!

TWENTY-FOUR medals! Woohoo!

To my American friends, yes, I know you still beat us by one, but you've got about ten times the population, so you'll have to let us enjoy this - as close as we've ever come to matching your powerhouse.

A nice lead-in to 2010 in Vancouver, I'd say. Congratulations to all the athletes - you make us proud. Especially our home-town girls, Cindy Klassen and Clara Hughes.

Yeah, I'm almost giddy! The Clara/Cindy victories just topped off an already near-perfect Olympics.

I can just imagine the conversations we'd be having with Dad these days. That Clara knows how to light up a room doesn't she. And she finally got her well-deserved gold, but she made us all sweat a bit...

It confirms what we've all known for years, Heather.
CANADIAN WOMEN ROCK!! And I feel so proud.

The Olympics -- at last the winter ones -- are no longer an embarrassment. I admire most of these athletes, not only for their ability but also their wonderful spirits.

And Dale, Canaidian women not only rock, but some of the throw rocks.

I just happened to catch the 5000 meter race yesterday. I was at my gym on the treadmill. What an amazing race.. such determination. Big congrats to all our wonderful Canadian athletes. :-)
