Well yesterday was spectacular!!!! 4 medals for Canada, plus we spanked Russia all the way back to the homeland! Frankly, I'm so exhausted from the spectacular day had by Canada, I don't have much to say. Sure, I didn't go downtown to join in the festivities, I am an old, responsible lady at this point (plus, I would've had to sleep over downtown and all the people I could crash with have rented out their places for exorbitant sums of money). But yeah, gold AND silver in women's two-man bobsleigh? Has that ever happened before? And how hilarious was it to watch the Korean short track speed skaters celebrate their gold medal, only to be DQ'd and give a silver to Canada? And really, Clara Hughes has got to be Canada's greatst Olympian. And that means all 4 medals were won by women. Just sayin'.
